Montevideo Guide to Gay Saunas, Cinemas, and Sex Shops

As early as 1934, same-sex activity was decriminalized in Uruguay, and the country has maintained its liberal stance towards sexuality ever since. The nation’s largest city, Montevideo, offers many safe venues for sex (although, common sense rules still apply.) Here’s a list of what a gay traveler can find in 2016.

Housed in a multi-story building that looks, feels, and smells old. A hot time can be had at Horus depending on who shows up when. A masseur is also available, but be aware, like the customers he may be gone long before the midnight closing time.

New, and well located two blocks away from Chains Pub. This cinema has two screening rooms, one gay and one straight (where you may see an actual hetero couple.) In addition, there’s a bar and two dark areas. Downstairs are cabins and gloryholes. But, why explain, when there’s a video tour with the owner of Cine Private on YouTube!
