Sticky Situation

NYC man says he slipped, fell and broke shoulder because gym is gay hot spot 

Talk about your slip and falls -- and it wasn't even at David Barton gym!

The Daily News reports:
A Manhattan man is suing his gym for damages after he fractured a shoulder by slipping and falling in the steam room on what he described as a "foreign white substance." Marc Moskowitz claimed in court papers that managers at the Bally Total Fitness gym on E. 55th St. were aware that gay "cruising and lewd behavior" is "commonplace at the steam room, sauna and locker rooms." "As a result of the aforementioned activities, there was bodily fluids and other evidence of sexual activity wherever it occurred throughout the gym," according to Moskowitz's suit in Manhattan Supreme Court. Instead of having staffers clean the areas, Bally simply "left a hose and liquid soap" for people to clean up themselves, the papers state. As a result, Moskowitz claims, he took a tumble last August and needed surgery to repair his shoulder. 
Not sure why he's calling the white substance "foreign" -- it sounds like he knows exactly what it was.

If he knew the place was a hotbed of cruising, shouldn't he have also been aware there might be 'foreign white substances' on the floor?
