One woman shared the moment she felt “uncomfortable” after a man “stormed” into a women-only sauna.
Sydney’s Milly Bannister posted a video explaining that her building has both men’s and women’s saunas for “security and privacy”.
But on this occasion, while Milly and her friend were in “short clothes” in the women-only sauna, she claims a man barged in to use the facility.
When the 25-year-old asked him to leave, she claimed the man got angry and refused.

Sydney influencer Milly Bannister (left) claims a man (right) ‘burst’ into a women-only sauna because it was ‘hotter’ than the men’s sauna. The 25-year-old and her friend asked the man to leave but he refused so they did after feeling unwell
“Okay so I’m by the pool in my building complex that I have a pass to and here are a couple of saunas – one of them male and one female,” Milly captioned the video.
“And of course I would prefer to use the woman because I’m wearing short clothes, I’m sweating, I’m sitting with my girlfriend and I’m talking, you know, you’re in a very enclosed space. And you sweat, it’s very personal and intimate.
“So my girlfriend and I were sitting here in the women’s sauna when this man burst in unasked and sat right in the middle.”
She claims the man said he preferred to use the women’s sauna because “it gets hotter” than the men’s sauna.
Milly posted a video explaining that her building has both men’s and women’s saunas for “security and privacy”.
In the video, the man can be seen wearing only swimming trunks and can be heard speaking in an angry tone.
Milly added text to the clip, claiming the man told her not to “assume he’s not gay” and to be allowed to use the sauna – she also dubbed the video “male privilege testing”.
‘The question is, am I the asshole for asking the man to leave because I don’t feel comfortable in a women-only sauna with a man I don’t know there,’ asked Milly.
In the comments, Milly said they left the sauna because the man “refused to leave” and that she will report the incident to the property manager.
The video has since surpassed 121,000 views and other TikTok users have also been shocked.
“The fact that he didn’t leave and fought you over it is a scary red flag,” one person wrote in the comments.
‘Sauna only for women = only for women. If it was unisex or unspecified it would be different but the sign literally says for women only,” wrote another.
A third added: “You did the right thing! Good for you for being brave in this situation.
