In D.C., apparently everyone just has sex in public bathrooms all the time, because our nation’s capital is overrun with entitled monsters.
Alan Popovsky, who owns Lincoln Restaurant and Teddy & The Bully Bar, has found that unisex single-occupancy restrooms—and handicap-accessible ones in particular—tend to be the most popular hookup spots. “If you go into a restroom and you can actually lock the door behind you, that’s just an open invitation,” he says. But in the case where there’s a men’s and women’s restroom to choose from, heterosexual couples almost always go for the women’s room. “Women are much more apprehensive to go into the men’s room and have sex with a man,” Popovsky says. “Or a woman. I have seen that before too.”
This seems unfair, given that women’s bathrooms generally have fewer facilities and a longer wait time, but that’s consequences of the patriarchy for you.
