    Do you have a sauna at your home? If not, you're in trouble.

    (To Russian speakers: I know, I know).
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Никогда не слышала «тотал сауна» (всем: в Гугле уже была и поняла, что это).
    А сообщение, безусловно, сексуальное. Особенно последнее слово. Это дело мы автору устроить можем. )))

    We know, we know that such a courteous person as Ramil couldn't translate "pzdc" (i.e. "pizdets") in any other way than as "trouble". But we know he meaned well (and "pizdets" IS hard to translate).

    The correct translation was given and there's no point in overloading you with details and nuances.
    But if you are still curious... "Pizdets" is a part of Russian extensive foul language, it's a rather mild one and is not offensive, though (as a lot of other Russian slang/"mat" words) it derives from the "sexual" "mat" word, which means female genitals.
    A quote from the dictionary of Russian "mat":
    пиздец (m) [pizdec]: Fiasco, the end of it all, something neat. The meaning can be heavily altered by the context.

    Yes i understand the literal translation is Ramil's answer. The problem is, what does THAT mean?
    Zaya said "its certainly sexual"..How is this?

    The question is WHY would I be in trouble? What is the significance of the "total sauna"?

    It was a joke (she referred to "pizdets").

    Do you want us to guess? "Total sauna" doesn't have any significance except the obvious - a sauna.
    The meaning depends on the content of your video.. or most likely it doesn't mean anything. Just a brainless comment.

    По-всему это очередной шпион, и это не было адресовано ему. Зачем мы будем помогать таким?
