It's gross! Janitors hit Equinox gym sex

It's gross! Janitors hit Equinox gym sex

BY BARBARA ROSS and BILL HUTCHINSON

DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITERS

Several disgusted janitors are dishing dirt on the Equinox fitness center chain, claiming in a lawsuit filed yesterday that the upscale gyms are used as sleazy gay sex clubs. The six janitors charge in the Manhattan Supreme Court suit that they are fed up with cleaning up after male gym members engage in "explicit sexual activity."

The janitors cited five Manhattan clubs, including the chain's flagship gym in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle, as places where "lewd behavior" is rampant in the men's locker rooms, showers, saunas and steam rooms.

When the maintenance men complained to management, they were "ridiculed" and subjected to "hostile" treatment, the lawsuit claims.

Equinox officials called the charges "frivolous" and deemed unfounded by separate investigation by federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

"It's just not an issue here at Equinox," said the chain's Chief Operating Officer Scott Rosen.

But janitors Jaisiin Bethea, Freddy Gonzalez, Jason Guishard, Omar Harris, Alex Mass and Rodney Vanterpool say they have frequently interrupted members having sex.

The janitors, who have all resigned from Equinox, are asking for unspecified damages and arguing their civil and human rights were violated.

Other Equinox gyms cited in the suit are located at Wall St. and Broadway, Greenwich Ave. and W. 12th St., E. 63rd St. and Lexington Ave., and Murray and Nassau Sts.

Those poor janitors! If this isn't a hostile work environment I don't know what is. Let's hope that they are successful with their lawsuit. These guys deserve hazardous duty pay and level 4 haz-mat suits!

Definitely qualifies to be in the category of the world's dirtiest/worst jobs....

Sexual degeneracy is mainstream ... the poor janitors will fail in this suit. We have a park in the area where the degenerates service one another in a public bathroom beside the lake ... police won't even go to the door! At least there ought to be a warning sign for children and unsuspecting parents who bring kids to the park ... 'TeaRoom' or 'FudgeStall' or some such.

I think this job might be a little too gross even for him, although Dave Attell once wielded a mop in the viewing rooms of a porn store on an episode of "Insomniac".

We have a similar situation in a city park and last year our police started setting up stings by having undercovers posing as men loitering around the park. The homopervs come up and solicit them to engage in specific acts, allthewhile it's being recorded on police voice recorders and the local TV station video cameras. When they bust the perv, the TV reporter tries to interview them while they are being hauled away in cuffs, being sure to capture their faces and everything on video which is promptly shown on the next local news cast. So far they've caught doctors, family men, you name it. It works to slow the park activity down quickly.

I defended a school district who fired a janitor for poor performance, and then my investigation discovered that he was a gay pedophile. The scary aspect was that this guy and his friends frequented the bathrooms at a kids' park near my house. Another bad aspect was that the school didn't even know that he had been forced to testify at the trial of another pedophile who molested a boy at one of those bathrooms.

I saw it on the show, 'ER'. They use black lights as part of a rape kit to detect semen before doing a full gyno exam. Black lights can also be used to detect cat urine on carpet.

These ignorant janitors are a bunch of disgusting, bigoted, homophobes who don't understand the enlightened nature of deviant sexual practices such as felching, gerbiling, rimming and the like. Of course, not all homos perform such practices, only about 95% and the other 5% are in normal, monogamous, loving, relationships. Sarcophobe

A few years ago, someone tried phtographing with long lens the persons coming and going at the 'tearoom bathroom' ... a lawsuit stopped that effort cold! The degenerates have so inveigled out socity that they now have more room to operate, not less. If public exposure is not allowed (as in the process you described), there is no other way to muster public outrage at these degenerates. I had a religious friend who took his camera with flash into the parking lot of one of the local homosexual clubs and did some 'flashing' of the 'customers' and parking lot trolls ... that club has recently been closed due to a major drop in clientele. One of the discouraging things he discovered was the large number of young people (male and female and often as what appeared to be hetero-couples) who frequented the 'club', especially on 'talent' nights. [We have a University in this town.]

I am more concerned with this at this point. Why do you suppose the investigation found nothing? Either the janitors are lying or their is a coverup or something is going on? I would believe that these two investigations are going to be used at court when they start the jury hearing if it gets that far.

Same thing in my small city where the homos have sex in the stinking smelly bathrooms at the kids soccer field. Parents finally put a stop to this temporarily, after several children witnessed these disgusting perverts attempting to recruit them in said acts of "normality."

Yep, black lights work well to locate beer spills - and other stains. I recently saw a cheap one for sale at one of those "Party Warehouse" stores.

Of course, the janitors would've had to gather that evidence before resigning - you can bet the unfortunate new janitors have had to scrub down every inch of the place.

Public men's rooms have been turned into a total no-go zone for regular, old-fashioned toilet purposes. In fact, whole city parks have been turned into no-go zones for anybody who is not there looking for gay sex. I honestly cannot understand why these people are allowed to deprive the rest of us of facilities that we pay for with our tax dollars and that should reasonably be ours to use.

Oh, just for additional laughs, you should know that the gay pedophile janitor working at a school was represented in the civil lawsuit at taxpayer expense by 2 very liberal attorneys from a legal services group. Even after he was arrested (after the firing) for having sex with a 15 year old boy, they not only refused to drop the case but appealed it twice. Total legal fees, almost $100,000 to my clients (oh, and since it was a school district on an AFB, taxpayers got to pay me too). We ended up paying him $1000 (no legal fees) to make him go away. He's in prison now.

"Aren't those the same thing?"

Gerbiling involves the rodent up the rectum and is a clear abuse of the gerbil but a civil right of the homo.
Felching does not involve animals and is really too disgusting to post. The definition was provided a year or so ago in another thread.

"It works to slow the park activity down quickly."

And yet, I take it, the activity resumes so that the stings have to continue.

There is something wrong in a homoperv brain. They are NOT normal.It is more than just a genital preference.

I honestly cannot understand why these people are allowed to deprive the rest of us of facilities that we pay for with our tax dollars and that should reasonably be ours to use."

I once went to a surplus carpet place to get some carpet for a small area. It was down the block from a park.

I backed in to the parking spot in front of the store to make it easier to load the carpet in the back of my vehicle, then I sat on the hood and waited for the proprietor, who was running a little late.

A number of cars pulled up and slowed down, and rolled down their window. I asked each time, "Hi, are you Mike the carpet guy?" Each time they pulled away real quick, which I found to be a little strange.

When the owner showed up and I asked him about that, he said that the park was overrun by homos and that they would locate each other by backing into parking spots and then waiting.

He thought it was funny, I didn't, but he did give me a hell of a deal on the carpet for my trouble!
