Gay Guide Israel

Israel's gays and lesbians typically enjoy freedoms similar to their counterparts in European countries. This has included civil partnerships for homosexuals since 2002. Israeli men are very discreet and a local sex scene for gay men is just starting to develop. The only two saunas in Israel have European standards regarding layout and equipment.
