Fragata is in fact a sauna, with all that implies, including private rooms and suites. They are a “boy sauna” which means that you can meet and go with a guy for money. As prostitution is legal in Brazil, the saunas are normally where this activity and action occurs. However, Fragata is particularly proud of their stripper shows and other hosted events, so stick around for the talent! Sunday and Tuesday are the best days in terms of a decent crowd of eligible boy toys as well as local delicacies.
But, I have found that any day that you are willing to wait and be patient, Mr. Right Now will walk in the door. Some people go to a sauna, don’t see anyone they want to spend time with and they leave. I am the opposite. I get there early, sit and have a drink in a good spot where I can see all the incoming newbies and I wait. I don’t mind waiting a few hours and I always get at least 10 guys come over to chat and try to get me to partake in their passions.
But, as Fragata is one of several saunas in gay Sao Paulo, if you don’t find the boytoy you want, go somewhere else and give it a shot. But, if you stick around a few hours, you will be entertained and have a good time even if you are not going to a room with anyone. The shows here are fun and the clientele is very knowledgeable about the gay scene in Sao Paulo.
