Gay activities (2) in Taipei Mar-May 2018
Gay activities (2) in Taipei Mar-May 2018
Hot springs, beach, park, online, discos, bookstore
Rather than chronological, sort these by venue or method. I was only looking for free encounters, I didn’t even search for places for paid encounters.

Gay hot springs
Huang Ding Sun4mar2018 18:53-22:20
Entry 250 NTD. Under 50 customers throughout. Several bordercases and one very cute (so slim, his hip bones were protruding; I like protruding hip bones and shoulder blades), I get my hands on his body in steam room but he is not interested.
Huang Ding Fri9mar2018 20:57-22:22
Manager or owner offers me 10 entries for 2000 NTD, which I accept. As bonus, this entry is free (making it 11 entries for 2000 NTD). Three other Whites, one Asian customer in towel (everyone else nude as usually). I scratch my leg on the eroded concrete (between the 38 C and 42 C pools), there was blood! Several bordercases, none of them interested. When I leave over 50 customers.
Huang Ding Fri16mar2018 18:05-50
Over 25 customers, gets busier, but nonetheless move on.
Kawayu Fri16mar2018 19:03-38
Entry 200 NTD + 20 NTD for locker. Only older men. From parking at Huang Ding, it’s 117 steps down to Kawayu, or up when you return.
Huang Ding Wed21mar2018
A closing notice on the door! Closed for good for money and hygiene problems, according to
The 10 entries for 2000 NTD was a scam!
Move on to Huang Szu (and other romanizations) 皇池 huáng chí, as Emperor Spa on google maps.
Emperor Spa Wed21mar2018 18:28-20:10
Entry 250 NTD + 20 NTD for locker. From over 30 to over 80 customers during my stay, and still getting busier when I leave. Several with tan lines (skimpy swimwear), are they from Singapore? Here it’s too cold for sunbathing. When I arrive one cute leaving, 3 other cute still around. Several more cute during my stay. Some groping in steam room. One cute is not interested (and I don’t even know if he is gay), another is not interested but he is gay (I saw him fondling someone else’s dick in the steam room). One father with young son (about 5 years old), everyone else estimated 20 to 60 years old, with peak towards the lower end.
Various pools, coming from locker room: flat only a few cm deep very hot water where you lie on your back, round cold pool, one hot (estimated 38 C) acidic (taste), one very hot (estimated 42 C), one hot (estimated 38 C) milky, two warm with massage jets. No thermometers, temperature estimated by comparison with hot springs that have thermometer (Huang Ding digital LED, Kawayu analog pointer on round scale). Steam room visibility about 2 m, hot. Stone bench mostly too hot to sit, but you can pour cold water over it and then sit down. Sauna hot and spacious and with window onto pool area. Promising, I will be back!
Emperor Spa Sun8apr2018 18:05-50
Brimming with about 100 customers, queues at the showers. One White, about 5 bordercases, about 5 minors. No gay activity.
Emperor Spa Fri20apr2018 19:34-20:38
Count 63 pairs of shoes. Some customers shapely, no gay activities in steam room. Some of the pools are turbid, and when sitting in the water I can barely see my knees, so I wonder if you could have a wank and nobody would notice. A weird idea, but in Nake sauna in Bangkok there was a sign in Thai: We ask our customers not to urinate in the sauna. Several cute boys, and I see one has his hand on his neighbor's dick in the turbid pool (that means you can see better when walking past than when sitting in the pool). And that’s as gay as it would get for me this visit!
With great success in Soi13in sauna (upcoming post), abandon all hot spring activities.
Peace Park = 228 Park.
Mon26feb2018 around 21:05
More than 10 boys, sit on bench and hold hands with a bordercase, but he doesn’t speak English and I don’t speak Chinese yet.
Sat10mar2018 from 22:15
(No further notes.)
Fri16mar2018 visit 20:30-21:08
Over 15 cruising, one approaches me and we have a chat in English. Then I have to leave because it’s getting cold (17 C, and I was wearing just a T-shirt).
Wed21mar2018 visit 20:55-21:10
Barbed wire at MRT exit and in park, and some police around, but cruising area open but less than 10.
Wed4apr2018 visit 21:38-22:00
Over 20 boys, but none of them cute.
Sun8apr2018 visit 22:00-20
About 20 cruising, none of them cute. Temperature 19 C.
That’s six visits, and many more on previous trips to Taipei, all of them promising in number and type of boys, but didn’t find anyone to take home.
With great success in Soi13in sauna (upcoming post), abandon all Peace Park cruising activities.
Shalun gay beach Sat28apr2018 16:20-17:10
I had high hopes (cute boys in swimwear in daylight) on Shalun Beach 沙崙海灘/沙仑海滩, but was bitterly disappointed. There were only few people on the beach, none of them cute. In the forest (parallel to road and beach) there was a lot of garbage (elsewhere everything very clean in Taiwan), and walking the paths in the forest I spotted 3 used condoms, 3 wraps of condoms and 1 wrap of lube. So there are interesting activities, but at what day of the week and what time, and can I watch or participate? But it took me almost two hours to get there, and unless I get specific information I won’t make that trip again.
Most of my activity on hornet. I messaged 110 cute boys (some of them twice) without reply. 31 members who are not my type messaged me, and I didn’t reply. I get into chatting with 14, but neither of us makes the first step to meet. Chat with 12 who would like to meet me, but I’m undecided (judging from picture, not sure if he will be my type). 5 message me without facepic, and don’t send facepic when I ask for it. Finally I meet 4 and go to bed (details below).
Those 176 mainly Taiwanese (one Pinoy, one Thai, one Brazilian, two Whites, one Indonesian who is my type, but in Indonesia). Chat mainly in English. I exchanged a few messages in Chinese, but my level is insufficient to arrange a date. And anyway, it can be assume that any gay Taiwanese who is interested in Whites speaks English.
On Gayromeo I found two cute profiles who study German, and asked them to meet for language exchange (and hopefully body liquid exchange), but I got “I will message you when I’m free”, and nothing more after that.
There was one interesting profile on Gayromeo that said “not for fr33”, and on asking I learnt that he is a money boy. That was the only money boy I encountered in all my gay activities in Taiwan.
R from hornet Fri2mar2018
Pick up R from hornet from MRT station near my room and spend a nice time in my room. But the weeks after, my messages not read or read but not answered. No idea what was wrong.
D1 from hornet Tue13mar2018
Pick up D1 from hornet from MRT station and spend three hours in my room. Originally he wanted to stay over night, but I would not commit to overnight on first encounter. But everything fine, next time overnight.
D1 comes again and stays over night. Luckily, both of us start study or work late, so we can enjoy both the night and the morning and leave together 10:30.Thu5-Sat7apr2018 Taichong
D1 moved to Taichong, and there are public holidays (no school for me) so I go to see him. Everything fine in bed (D1 didn’t join me for sightseeing during daytime). This was the first time I stayed in AirBnB (cheaper than hotels). Only afterwards did I get the idea that there might be a rule that prohibits intercourse in AirBnB, but I didn’t find anything about intercourse in their rules.
O from hornet Tue24apr2018
Go to see O (from mainland China) in his hotel. A bordercase, play along in bed.
Meet in his hotel, some hugging, then go to cinema.
Meet for hiking, hello and goodbye at MRT station.
D2 from hornet Tue1may2018
Pick up D2 at MRT station, then study Chinese for half an hour, but that was just a pretext. Spend 15:40-18:40 in bed. D2 has about 2 hours travel time to my place, so I invite him for dinner to compensate for his expense in time and money to come to see me.
D2 comes to my place, then directly to bed. Too much kissing (I’m not so much into kissing mouth to mouth, I rather have my lips on his neck and his lips on my nipples or around my cock) and talking. But warm and dry skin throughout.
D2 comes to my place. Prepare with 50 mg Sidegra 13:42. Then in bed 14:15-18:18 (that’s over 4 hours, I think a new record). Fuck him at the beginning, and at the end I get fully hard so fuck him again. Two fucks within 4 hours, a biological miracle!
Summary for these 4 boys I met: Quality far superior to Thai: no space/time confusion, no money problems, all fluent in English and can hold a conversation. But quantity not enough! I would tentatively say that Taiwanese boys are sticky rice.
And this was experimental proof that in the absence of dark-skinned boys, I can have meaningful sex with white-skinned boys. But in Thailand or Cambodia or Myanmar I probably would have dismissed all of them for being to pale.
As a general observation from traveling and online dating, I can formulate the “3-6 days rule”: when you arrive at a new place and start online dating, the peak of activity (meeting someone and having sex) is between 3 and 6 days after arrival. You have to consider that not everyone is online every day, and you need one or two days to set up a meeting. When I travel in Thailand I usually stay only 1 or 2 nights in a place, which is too short for meaningful online dating (but my main objective is sightseeing, and I came back for some boys I didn't have time to meet on my first stay somewhere). Staying longer than one week will not bring any new contacts, but the number of encounters will just be divided by a larger number of days.
After reading a lot of good things about Blued, e.g.
it’s time to install it on my phone. Too late to compare hornet and blued in Taiwan, but for Thailand I can say it’s a valuable addition.
Bars and discos
Commander D 30mar2018
300 NTD entry including one drink. Stay 22:44-23:55. It it’s brimming, I get a queue number when you order my drink. About 5 cute boys and 10 Whites, getting more during my stay. Several boys in sleeveless shirts (at night temperature can be as low as 15 C, I would be freezing). Music, temperature, light okay. Smokers have to go outside (but then stand directly in front of the entrance). The darkroom was not open that night (or is not open any more?). Promising, but I have to leave to get the last MRT home.
I had plans to go to various discos (some of them a once per month gay event), but never made it for two reasons: my Taiwanese friends were not free to join (and alone I feel out of place in a disco), and they are late, so how to get back home after MRT stops midnight? (Check times for night buses, or take a taxi.)
Eslite Xinhi Anhe bookstore Sun20may2018 20:00-22:10
There are reports on the internet that this bookstore is cruisy. It was certainly busy, but not a hint of cruising. Nonetheless, I love books, so a visit to a bookstore is not wasted time.
