Heads Up!
"Two assailants slashed a 63-year-old man during the robbery of a Greenwich Village sex shop early Sunday, cops said.

The knife wielding duo stormed Xcellent Video, 24-hour porn shop on Sixth Ave. near W. 13th St. around 5:20 a.m., and slashed a store clerk, according to officials."

Man, 63, slashed in sex shop robbery in Greenwich Village


In light of the Review from Oct 11 2016 I think your Heads Up alert may be justified. Some bad things are going down here. ~ Editor

Heads Up!
I went in there this morning and there was this young Latino standing outside the door. The back was closed so I left.

The Latino guy outside the door said, "Yo!" and started following me. I shook my head and then he started yelling, "Where's my money?!" And when I went across 6th Ave. he started yelling, "Where's my money?!" louder. When I went down the subway steps he got really mad and said, "Where's my fuckin' money, faggot?!"


I looked up this place on Google and made a few small corrections for this page. I couldn't find the current hours, even checking several sites, so I removed them.

Clearly and aggressive homophobic people can be found many, many places. I'll keep the 'Heads Up' alert you have on this, although whether this is typical of this business is unknown. ~ Editor

A totally dead space with about only three has-been guys in the eight booths, some of whom could fit in with the sad numbers at the video store on 6th Ave between 23nd and 24th Sts. The attendant is almost always near the back watching the three guys by the booths since there is no business in sales near the front of the store for him to deal with.

How they have stayed open all these years is beyond me. The location is good, and maybe the money laundering is too. Numerous times I have come in to give it a chance, and it is consistently whack. I am surprised the places has not had hit-and-run robberies of the unguarded merchandise near the front door, especially with all the junkies who camp out by the abandoned back across the street.

I live nearby and check in here occasionally when I am passing by. 4 out of 5 times there is never anyone here! When there is, it is usually the same few stand and model cocksuckers ready to pounce on the first top that comes in. Frankly, I don't understand how they stay in business, let alone stay open 24/7. It would seem their monthly bills would run more than they take in. I wonder if it is the location right on the busy avenue block that keeps guys, especially neighborhood guys, away. I am apprehensive myself just because I'd rather not be seen by people from my building going in or out of here.

It's really too bad as the guys who work here are friendly and never hassle anyone about standing around. When in a booth they do ask you to put money in which is only fair. The place is extremely clean too.

The potential is there, it just needs guys! Would be nice to remedy that so guys, check it out and let's try and do that. :-)

This place is quickly becoming a favorite. Latest visits were a rainy Sunday night about 9:30 and Tuesday night about 9. Nice load from fine black cock each time. I figure I will always stop in when I'm in the 'hood as long as my luck holds.

Slow store so the manager guy does little, and sometimes hangs out near the back by the booths. The booth space is small, and average to well-below average guys come here. Some know each other and are chatty. It is a bit sleazy and claustrophobic. Not as good as other places, but it seems busy, albeit with non-Chelsea types or attractive types for that matter.

Stopped in this place on a Saturday afternoon and it was dead. Tried again yesterday (a Thursday) about 5:30 and it was hopping. Small area with six booths in back. You have to feed the machines, and the attendant will give you a gentle reminder, but he's a cool guy, ready with change if you need it. The place is pretty clean, nice sized gloryholes between each booth. I sucked four men in about half an hour before I had to go. Took three nice loads. I'll definitely go back.

For the second visit in a row, I was getting a good blow when the guys, without asking me, tried to stick my cock up their asses raw. The man last night would not even finish blowing me after I said I used condoms. Fortunately, another guy let me cum in his mouth.

The old troll that pretends he is cleaning the booth area is really cleaning out their business of any real customers. He ruins what could be a good cruising experience by doing everything he can to distract you from getting the hot cruisers that may stop in. He is only there to get them for himself and the owners are too stupid to realize or do anything to prevent him from wrecking their business. He pretends to be cleaning the place but if you go you will see how dirty it is and the smell will turn you off. Try somewhere else. This place should be closed!

There's a guy there who goes to smoke his drugs and has a huge dick that he likes to show off and I love to suck off. All the DVDs are behind the cashier's counter. Yeah, the guy who mops of the day's cum is chummy and a nuisance.

No tax! If you pay cash the cashier won't ring up the tax. Times are tough, so cheat the tax man. There's absolutely no person there you'd want to touch.

Rip off. One attendant accuses a customer of stealing DVDs that aren't in the cases, locks the door, and threatens to call the cops unless paid some amount of money. Drug users, smokers, and hustlers frequent the booths. It's also unclean in the booth area. Another attendant refers to customers as 'faggot.' Strange place.

Strange evening. A really hot young guy was blowing me but he just wasn't a good cocksucker. Another guy wasn't as attractive, but he sucked dick a lot better. The only complaint was that he wouldn't swallow my cum.

With the financial crisis making things feel like the days of the Great Depression, we also are headed towards the ways of Prohibition days. Many of these places are closing every week with court orders being placed on owners and high rents from the landlords. Whether underground places will surface is anyone's guess.

The old man that they have sitting near the booth area and considers himself helpful by 'cleaning/mopping' the booths once in a while is really hurting their chances of remaining a profitable business. He distracts and ruins any chance of you getting any action by making comments to distract you, and then goes into the booth that you were in to get the action that he prevented you from getting. The owners keep him there for the few bucks they give him to mop up the place but all he is doing is keeping all of the hot guys away. I have really enjoyed this place up to a week or so ago because this troll is very annoying! I am likely done with this place and highly recommend that others stay away as well to give them the message that this guy has to go!

It would smell better if they cleaned the dried spooge away from the generously sized slots between the buddy booths. It would be more inviting if the clients were in good shape, healthy looking, under fifty years old, and not high on something.

I've bought three defective DVDs here. No more of that. They have virtually no return or exchange policy, and it's not worth haggling over as if it were a Persian bazaar. Further, the place is a filthy pit, the crowd is not very attractive (when there are even people there, other than the homeless and drug users).

This place is hopeless and has gone downhill! The NYU studs have found somewhere else or just got smart and gave up on this place since the crowd that they are attracting is the worst I have seen out of many of the NYC places lately. On a Friday afternoon visit there were old disgusting trolls and the closest that they had to anyone decent was this young hustler-looking crackhead and he kept on pulling his cock out to attract anyone that he could to finance his 'needs'. And even though he had one of the best and hugest cocks I have ever seen, I wasn't into paying for it so I let this very heavy, desperate cruiser have it and after they were done the crackhead hustler left the middle booth that he was in and went into one of the booths at the end and urinated and took a shit before the owners caught him in the act and kicked him out. Unlikely that I will go here again. This new group running this place just doesn't care about who they let in.

There's always someone there. The trouble is that someone is often a homeless person, drug addict, hustler, disabled, troll, or just plain elderly and poor. The place also serves as a social place for several men from the nearby LGBT center who talk a lot and unintentionally block the booths.

Maybe if management asked the drug addicts to leave it would get better. I recently slipped on fresh panties, did my teeth, and ventured there only to find a young illiterate man with a baggy of some powder asking if I 'partied.' Heaven's to Betsy. 'No,' I replied.

During the weekdays you need to go around lunchtime, right after work, or late at night to hit the busiest time. Hopped into a booth with a good-looking guy but it turns out he was a top too. Would have loved it if he sucked me and let me fuck him. He was hot!

I was visiting from out of town and found these booths to be clean, with paper towels provided to wipe yourself off. You have to find adjacent booths since the gloryholes aren't on both sides. Closely monitored by polite Asian attendants. The gloryholes are long slots. I give it a solid B rating.

I almost always top, but as I was getting ready to stick my dick through the gloryhole, in came this massive honest-to-goodness ten-inch, thick, uncut cock. The guy was a Latino with a hot masculine body, even though he didn't have the most handsome face. I actually came while sucking him. After he blew his load, I talked to him. He said he had a girlfriend, but I sure hope he comes back here regularly. Guys, this place is h-o-t.

The gloryhole they cut in the first two booths on your left as you enter the booth area has really helped pick up the traffic. As to why so many young guys in their twenties go here instead of other gloryhole video booth stores, I can only guess that it's because of its proximity to New York University. Whatever the reason, I'm just happy to have these young dudes suck me and take my loads.
