Policy statement  



Bodyworks is a club with a long history in Dunedin serving the interests of genetic males looking to explore their homoerotic desires. It now operates within a mixed use venue known as "Space4u" which offers a range of private hire and social group options outside Bodyworks times - whatever tribe you identify with Space4u can probably accommodate you so check out the website for more information on that

The primary mission of the Bodyworks club has always been to provide a safe, clean and interesting environment for genetic males seeking sexual contact with other genetic males. Most guys come here for uncomplicated fun but
BODYWORKS IS NOT A CRUISE CLUB, it operates within an entertainment space. The people who enjoy the best experience are the ones who arrive with a broader entertainment plan, leave any negative emotional baggage outside, embrace the venue as their "safe place" and behave in a friendly, easy going, good humoured, sociable manner: Come for an afternoon or evening (or both with a free same day return option) and make good use of all the facilities you are paying for.

If you are looking for friendship and community I strongly encourage you to take advantage of the social opportunities you'll find within Space4u - for those of you who want a Gay Community space in Dunedin, a lesbian space, or to accommodate any other special interest group make it happen here - Mondays & some other times can be available if requested.

Support Bodyworks, support Space4u, support community -
Strength, security and good emotional health are gained through cooperation and mutual support, not isolation.

The Bodyworks club is a clothing optional environment Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday & Public Holidays.
Nudity is encouraged at all times & compulsory on Thursday & Saturday afternoons - shed your inhibitions and enjoy a liberating experience!

Footwear Note: bring your own if desired, soft shoes, flat soles only
STILETTO & OTHER HIGH HEELED SHOES ARE NOT PERMITTED (they cause floor damage and a noise nuisance to tenants below us)

Enlightenment values

Advice to customers
Promoting community cooperation
  Business sale proposal  

Above: options for relocation might include a cooperative venture shared between several investors who are more interested in the lifestyle (spa, sauna, gym, community space) than profit. As it does now, the business certainly needs to accommodate more than one population group and should not be restricted to sexual interests.

Below Promotional poster for proposed gay community social evenings. Space4u offers Dunedin gay men & lesbians this social opportunity but these events can only be staged if sufficient individuals register their interest at reception. Monday nights present the easiest times but another afternoon or evening might be arranged.
These social events can do what the internet cannot: help you to cultivate your real world social skills and develop useful long term friendships and alliances.
A strong community won us the freedoms we enjoy today and we need a strong community to maintain those freedoms.
