The Hornet Guide to Paris

Paris is known as the world’s most romantic city. Lovers visit landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Louvre to create romantic memories. But do you know that Paris is also one of the best cities in the world to get laid?

With a progressive social agenda, France has provided legal protection to its LGBTQ citizens since 1985. By 2013, France was the 13th country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage, making Paris one of the most gay-friendly cities in the world.

For gay men, Le Marais is the neighborhood for no-strings-attached fun. On your next naughty adventure, check out these must-visit places:

La Mine

La Mine is the gay bar for finding fetishists. This hole-in-the-wall place hosts different “fetish” theme nights — be sure to bring your leather and latex and have a wild time!


If you like to watch hot guys playing with themselves in the shower — and who doesn’t?! — then Raidd has the perfect show for you. With a team of sexy go-go boys for nightly entertainment, renowned DJs spin upbeat club music for the perfect night out.

Le Mensch

This dungeon-inspired bar gives off a medieval vibe with a built-in labyrinth equipped with old chains and beams. Le Mensch serves stiff drinks — and that’s great! — but patrons come here with one thing in mind: SEX.

Full Metal

This bar is a sea of testosterone and heat. In the heart of Le Marais, Full Metal has darkrooms to explore — and for watersports enthusiasts, special urinals. If you’re spent, you can recharge and chill with other guys with Full Metal’s excellent happy hour.

IDM Sauna

IDM Sauna has all the standard equipment in this massive five-level facility. It also has a naturalist area where you can walk around without any inhibitions. Not just a place to relax, IDM Sauna regularly hosts live sex shows for your enjoyment.

Secteur X

Secteur X hosts different theme nights like “Happy Sex” in this dimly-lit bar. It has a darkroom for guys to play and naked area to explore. Adventurous? With its darkroom and naked-only area, this is the place to have fun and get laid.
