Man do I ever miss this place. Since moving to LA from SF I can now appreciate this place. Guys, there are NO gloryholes in Southern California. Be thankful there are places in SF.

Probably the cleanest arcade in the Bay Area, at least the cleanest one with gloryholes. My office is near here, so it's convenient for an after-work quickie. They offer free condoms at the front counter, the restroom door locks, and the restroom always has paper and towels.

Crowd is hit or miss. Sometimes it's dead and sometimes it's hopping. Love going here and getting naked in a booth and jacking off for whomever is in the next booths, or sucking cock if I'm in the mood. I wish all the Secrets Arcades were this well run and maintained.

This place would be amazing if more guys went. Only $5 entrance fee, clean booths, restroom, and staff that doesn't hassle you to keep "feeding the meter". It's close to Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf and Trader Joe's. I've had a lot of fun there over the years, and it's hit or miss, just wish it wasn't so dead most of the time.

I went here yesterday at 12:30 pm like everyone recommends. Lunchtime found about 5 guys in there. 2 hot. 3 not. There was street parking, but it looks like it could be a bitch. The guy who works there is super nice. You buy a $5 pass, but he explains that you can use dollars first and save the $5.

There is a Trader Joes across the street and one of the hottest, mildly grungy Trader dudes came in. We took a booth and both got totally naked, sucked each other and I ate his nicely furry hole and truly wanted to fuck him. I had no condom on me, and there were none in the back. Instead I slide my thumb into his tight ass, and sucked him until I felt him ready to shoot his jizz. He was cool with finishing me and I shot one of the biggest loads ever.

I was there about a month ago around lunch time. The entrance fee to the arcade is $5 but they used to give you five $1 vouchers that you can feed into different booths one at a time. Now they give you a single $5 voucher, so you're basically stuck in the one booth until the money runs out which is a drag if you are surrounded by straight guys or trolls on both sides. Never very active, and I suspect increasingly less so in the future due to this new voucher policy.

This place is hit or miss. Full of regulars, mostly Latin and Asian and older guys with a few hot hung dudes that visit sometimes. I hear they are raising the price to $10 or $40 per week. You can come and go as much as you like. I like to cum and go and get it over with so this will probably mean I need to find a new spot that is cheaper and more reliably hot. The management is commendable because they don't hassle anybody.

Alright, so this particular managment/ownership team are hassle-free. You can hang out for hours for a mere $5. The restroom is open without having to ask for a key. It's pretty clean, though I do wonder if they actually wipe down the walls and the holes.

It is a fairly reliable place for straight trade; I do find that it's not what it used to be, but the competition has become rather a cutthroat business here and that has had a negative effect.

The aggressive, (and not cute), bearded guy somebody else mentioned -- yes, he does all that. He looks like a leprachaun, and he will do everything he can to screw you over, but he's not as smart as he thinks he is. There's another heavy, older montrous troll who looks like Jabba the Hut. He will hog booth space just to thwart you and he never leaves.

This place can be fun, but last week when I was there the same bearded guy was hanging out locking and unlocking doors. If you are in a booth and he wants you, he will unlock the door to try to come in. If you are in a booth and there is a gloryhole next to you, he will lock the other booth until you leave, and then he will unlock it again. He is very aggressive and kind of ruins the fun of the place.

Great little place for those looking to get off or to suck. Was there on Sunday and there was a guy with a beard that was going around and locking and unlocking doors. It was quite irritating and many guys were leaving thanks to him. Sometimes it's not so bad to have the clerks watching.

Have been there several times over the past few months. Clean, gloryholes, no hassle. It is small, only 6 or 8 booths, with a mixed crowd of all ages, mostly white and Asian. Married tunnel and bridge guys from Marin on their way home, or after workouts at the healthclub across the street, and tourists.

On my recent trip to San Francisco I found out that my favorite arcade place had closed their doors for good, so I hesitantly decided to check out this place instead. It is a little bit far from downtown so taking Muni or the cable car is a great idea. I got there early in the day and was a bit disappointed when I found there was only one other guy in the arcade. He was a hot, muscular, Russian daddy type who was obviously straight and needed a blowjob bad and I was happy to obige. I figured it would be fun to stick around to see if any other hot guys would show up on their lunch break, but was quickly disappointed and surprised that the staff had their cleaning guy come in to turn on all the lights and sanitize the entire place for about 90 minutes during lunch. I left and returned later. To my surprise lots of hot guys did show up. I got to suck four married guys, one hot frat jock from the gym across the street coming in for a blow, one young straight student from a nearby college, and 5 more hot daddies. For me it was a blast, literally.

Under new management that is very nice and indulgent about the action in the back room. No longer do they close for cleaning for two different hours during the day, and no longer do they make you go across the street to use the restroom. They are open longer hours - 10 am to midnight. The crowd is the same as it always was, however with a decidely better chance at getting a hot straight guy. I almost always end up satisfied, though it can be frustrating dealing with the regular lurking trolls who take up booth space even though obviously nobody wants them. If you are patient, it will most likely pay off.

I love this place! Around lunch time, you will almost always find horny married guys, either tourists or businessmen, looking to get off. I once gloryhole sucked 7 guys in about an hour. There is also a bigger couples booth where I go when the guy wants to fuck.

Mostly white collar patrons and best times are lunch and later in the evening. The staff clean between 5 - 6 pm and the smell of bleach drives people away then. I usually get a hornier crowd during lunch hours but have been lucky at 8 pm.

This place is pretty awesome whenever I go. It's cheap, clean, and convenient. Lots of foreign tourists. I've seen all types of action happen here. One of the clerks plays sometimes, too. He's got a nice, fat cock and is a good cocksucker. There could be more gloryholes, but that's my only complaint. Overall a good place, especially if you're into married men.

The arcade costs $5 to get in and it was pretty tired when I went there. There are only a few booths that are awkwardly arranged and only a few of those have gloryholes. At least one of the video monitors would not take money, so no video in that one. I'd say unless you happen to be in that part of town (Fisherman's Wharf/North Beach), that it's best to go elsewhere for action.

It can really be hot at times. Sure, there are a lot of regulars. The dumbest thing is their fairly new policy of closing down from 5:30 to 6:30 pm for cleaning...rush hour. It's been slow lately, maybe since the Larry Craig incident, or the weather has been nice too, but overall, historically, I've had my hottest straight dudes here. The trolls and booth hogs can be annoying but that's true for everyplace.

This place is so not hot. I've been going on and off since 1994 when I used to work across at the North Point Center and it's always been beyond boring. There is a bit of action but good luck waiting. Even when there's possibility, there's attitude from a guy hoping something better will come along. And guess what? Hardly ever. I go very, very infrequently and it's always the same thing. Go down to Folsom and pay the ten bucks. It's not super great anymore either but at least you can score.

Be suspicious about the positive reviews of this place. I think the owner has placed them on the site. I do see many ads on Craig's List that seem like an in-house advertising ploy, like come meet me at Video Secrets, etc. Who does the management think they're kidding? This place is dead.

This place can rock with other hot masculine and hung dudes. It's best from lunchtime till 4 pm, and after work till 7:30 or 8 pm. I swapped head with a hung uncut Latin bro. He sucked me through the gloryhole twice. We took it to a booth and another married jock dude joined us until we all came again. Never disappointed here. It's always clean and the staff friendly.

Overall: +4 (Good). Cleanliness: +1. Trolls: -1. Straight Trade: +2. Staff Attitude: +2. Crowd Factor: 0. Gloryholes: +2. Price: 0. Other: -2. I didn't spend much time at this one but the setup seemed pretty conducive to good hookups. There were a few ethnic and younger types hanging around plus one or two trolls hoarding the good booths. There are proper gloryholes in all the booths, a bit low but still good. There is a video camera but the staff is far away and pretty laid back. It's located on a main street near the tourist area and draws a fair bit of straight trade. I added a special deduction this time for the stupid chairs they stuck in each booth that makes it hard to crouch down to the gloryholes. This is a good place to go for dick and head though. I recommend it!

I live nearby and go to this place often to get my dick sucked. This is a great place if you want to be a little picky because there is usually a good selection of guys from average to very good-looking. I usually have a ton of fun and of the dozen or so times I've gone I think there was only once that I left without finding a hot guy.

I went here for the first time yesterday and I was pretty impressed. I sucked 7 cocks, and got to see an incredibly hot young married guy in a business suit jack off for me. He was even talking on his cell phone to one of his buddies while he jacked off! Then he stood up and shot his load through the glory hole for me. Totally fucking hot. Also got some very cheesy uncut cock from a straight contractor-type. Lots of business guys after work here, and I saw quite a few wedding rings. I'll definitely be going back, possibly today at lunchtime!

I just went here last month for the first time and have been back four more times. Seems best between 3 and 7 pm. I’ve always found eager cocksuckers to work on my thick prick. There’s lots of oral swap through the gloryholes with dudes of all ages and races. I gave head to hung, married Euro tourist in his forties with a big uncut dick while a hot Latino bro sucked me off while stroking his uncut dick. Good times with mix of local and tourist action.

I was recently there on a Friday night, around 8 or 9 pm, and it was slow though it appeared to be picking up as I was leaving. I would have stayed if I had had more energy left. As I left there was a handsome Latino guy who tried to get my attention. I sort of regret not hooking up with him. Ninety percent of the guys who were there were all decent to attractive (not that I was interested in all of them, but none were repulsive). The biggest plus -- no homeless/hardcore druggies were hanging out like in most of the other places I've been to in San Francisco. I watched the woman at the front desk tell a scruffy, homeless-looking guy that he couldn't come into the store. She then proceeded to leave the counter and throw him out amid his protests. This was my first time there so I don't know if this was an anomaly or not but it is one of the cleanest bookstores I've seen. So, they obviously care about the premises (and, by extension, are careful about the clientele). There are eight booths total. Three sets of two booths have gloryholes between them and two ‘private’ booths have no gloryholes whatsoever. One booth is a large, handicapped-size. (I had fantasies of getting three or four guys in there at the same time but there weren't that many guys in the store -- maybe someday!) Though there are signs saying only one person per booth, the staff did not say anything the two times I went into the large booth with someone else. I agree with another posting here that the gloryholes are fine to get your cock through but too small for balls. I am definitely going back at different times of the day and evening to find out the best time.

I've been here several times in the last six months. Once I sucked off this totally hot bodybuilder who wanted to fuck me through the gloryhole. Other times I've blown several guys before leaving. It's hit-or-miss for action but the staff doesn't harass anyone and it's clean. They need to get rid of the lawn chairs in the booths that take up too much room.

Went about 9:30 pm on a Friday night. Only five of us were there and everyone wanted to play. Sat down and a nice thick cock popped though the gloryhole. I sucked him off twice. An attractive guy in his forties offered me his hole but I was already spent. I like this place.

Heads Up!
Be very cautious of your surroundings. There is a sting operation in effect. Check out the booths with doors closed with no red lights on. A cop sits quietly. When action is occurring between the booths with gloryholes The cop signals his partner to come in (usually a handsome cop with tight jeans groping himself). Once you touch him, you'll be arrested for sure.
