Sydney City Steam 357 recently notched up the one millionth condom it has placed in the venue for patron use.
The condoms, which feature the 357 logo plus a safe sex message, are part of the venue’s ongoing campaign to ensure patrons play safely at all times.
Co-owners Ty Dovans and Luke Frappell said the condoms, alongside the blanket safe-sex signage at the venue, were to “ensure our clients are having safe sex”.
“We try to always be a step ahead and focus on our clients’ wellbeing,” Dovans said.
“We see 2,500 guys a week and have 24 staff – up to four per shift. Our cleaning procedures are a first for any venue.
“On any busy shift we have a cleaner on the floor full-time, with the aim of cleaning your room before every use.
“We have a reputation for being friendly, busy and clean and we are the highest payers in the industry to ensure our staff are top notch.
“As well, we have zero tolerance to recreational drugs and strongly enforce this.”
Dovans said the gay-owned and -managed venue employs only gay staff where possible, and puts its profits back into the community.
“We are open every day of the year, even Christmas Day when we see 250 people for a free lunch, with entertainment by Kitty Glitter. And most Saturdays there is an event – either towel-free, a foam party or entertainment on our stage.
“It’s not just about sex at 357, with one floor of fun and eight high-speed free internet terminals, a café, a theatre and a stage if you just want to relax.
“Our motto is all sizes, all races and all ages are welcome.
“The safety of our clients is a major issue – we have banned more than 100 people from the venue for a variety of reasons. We even have a lifetime banned book – with their pictures so we never forget them.”
Sydney City Steam 357 is at 357 Sussex St, Sydney. Details: www.sydneycitysteam.com.au.
