MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- Eighteen men were arrested as part of a sex sting operation involving a public restroom in Manhattan Beach.

The lifeguard staff at the Marine Avenue headquarters originally noticed vandalism and what was called suspicious activity at the restroom and notified police. Lifeguards also noticed men frequently using and returning to the same bathroom, and some were loitering in the area as well as inside the restroom for long periods of time.

Officers set up surveillance at the restroom. Detectives also began monitoring several websites where discussions of the Marine Avenue bathroom were taking place. Based on the information gathered, investigators concluded that the public restroom was being used as a meeting place for sexual activity.

According to a radio report, police found holes drilled in the walls between the stalls. EWWWWWWWWWW! For those unfamiliar with the vernacular, they are referred to as "glory holes."

And of course if someone invades your privacy or harasses you, you cannot strike back at the sexual assault perpetrator the way a woman could do if approached by a stranger asking for sexual services in a public bathroom. That’s a “hate” crime.

Check their computers for kiddie porn while you cops are at it.

When they used the phrase “vandalism” I figgered they were drilling holes. How do I know that? I’m from Larry Craig’s state and thanks to him I learned too much info reading about his proclivities. Lots of these guys probably had toe-tapping “wide stances” as well.

One of the national gay rights advocacy groups wants to decriminalize this behavior because it unfairly targets gay men.

Geez. I have been misinterpreting what the narrator on that gold mining show "Gold Rush" has been talking about. I guess those miners are real perverts.

Well, I guess “constipation” could be ruled out for a defense case of them being in the john for such long periods of time.

I ran into something like this yeeeeears ago at Will Rogers State beach while I was in college. One morning during the summer I drove my Dad to the airport (so I would get to use his nicer car while he was away). It was really early and decided to drive back up the coast and stop at a beach for several hours. I picked Will Rogers at random. At first it appeared deserted, but every five minutes or so a different guy would interrupt my reading to ask if I had any suntan lotion. Eventually I noticed all these same guys going in and out of the restroom on a deserted beach, the parting slap on the butt as they came out of the building in pairs made me realize what was going on and that the entire beach was a homo pickup spot. So I got the hell out of there as fast as I could. I’ve never been back there since.

I also remember hearing a report about a lifeguard thinking something was strange when he saw two and three sets of legs in one stall. LOL

What is it with queers and public restrooms??

Had a similar sting in our town a couple years ago. A public restroom in a park.

As someone once said, “That’s one big hole”.

Rosie O’Donnell?
Rachel Maddow?
Barney Frank?

The pilot of the “Enola Gay”? I didn’t deliberately think of this one and the name of the plane. Sorry Col. Tibbets.

Must be the Obama economy. Even Motel 6 is out of their price range.

I guess they should ask Obama if they can use the Lincoln Bedroom.

These guys don’t look ‘flamboyant’. Let me get this straight; The glory hole is used so the customer doesn’t have to see what they’re ‘getting’, so to speak? I wonder if they have a lot of ‘slip and fall’ lawsuits from that bathroom.

When I was a boy in Nashville TN, my school took us on a field trip to cedar hill park. While there a few of us went to the men's room, and there was this fat old man loitering in there, he asked us if we wanted a BJ, we were about 12 years old at the time, and didn't have a clue, but my instinct told me that something was definitely wrong. So we got out of there. I went and told my teacher that a old man was asking us in the restroom if we wanted BJ’s, (not quite sure what a BJ was at the time) I will never forget my teachers facial expression when I told her what happened

Because gerbils are not allowed in guest rooms of most hotels, and certainly a large majority of Gujarti-Indians (Patels) at the front desks would object for health and safety reasons.
