Gay orgy shocks unsuspecting London park-goer

Hampstead Heath is one of London’s largest parks, boasting tranquil fields, wooded outcroppings and even swimming ponds.

It’s frequented by all sorts of folks seeking a refreshing dose of nature, but it also has a long reputation among gay and bi men who partake in life’s more carnal sensations.

And it is perhaps because of the park’s cruising history that an image depicting a gay group scene popped up on its listing on a popular city mapping app.

A Twitter user says he was shocked to make the discovery on Citymapper.

He told Gay Star News: “I stumbled across it as I’d just come from work and saw a lot of friends on Instagram there.

“I was already meeting a friend in Hackney Wick but wanted to check how far it was. When that came through, it made a change from the usual underground sign thumbnail!”

He posted an image of the surprising find, along with the caption: “Hi @Citymapper – why is there a picture of an orgy when I type in Hampstead Heath?”

  1. Pass the blame along to Yelp
  2. Deny that the park has a cruising reputation by calling it “just an innocent park”

Here’s what folks had to say about Citymapper’s naïveté:
