This piece breathes and in every exhale I can hear softly "Party´s over" by Yuji Ohno playing.

The public bath has always been a place for encounters, places with a big history to tell. Way back in Roman times a bath was an important social meeting place, and they were used to relax, to discuss political issues or just to make clear who was who in Roman society. Not only for the Roman men the bathhouse was popular, but for all men around the mayor cities in the old world, later in the 19th century the Bathhouses started to be popular among gay men in America, when being an homosexual was illegal and a crime against nature, they became places for casual encounters, where no one judge, where everybody looked for the same thing. The popularity of Bathhouses never fell out of fashion, even today are popular places for men all around the mayor cities, men who look for some time to relax or to spend a nice time with other men, just as in the old world.
Some things never change.
