Each week in Perth, hundreds of men meet on the second story of the building located at the corner of William and Forbes streets. The social and political landscape around gay and homosexual issues has changed a lot over the past two decades in WA, but one constant has been Perth Steam Works. Mr Chester said having the right location was critical and attributes it to the success of the venue, which was the second gay sex venue in Perth at the time. Mr Chester said he drew on previous experiences from venues around Australia and internationally when creating Perth Steam Works. From a dry sauna, wet steam room, a spa, darkroom, a room with mirrors on every wall and ceiling, a sling and private rooms — there is something for everyone, and every fantasy. In its infancy, Mr Chester said the venue advertised in newspaper personal columns and despite the rise of the digital age and mobile phone dating apps, he said Perth Steam Works remains as relevant as it did 18 years ago.
