I am thinking of visiting this Sunday midday. It's a very friendly, clean and welcoming place, and often, anything goes. Especially in the larger booth at the arcade entry, or sometimes even in the aisles.

I am a skilled cocksucker who always wants to improve my performance, but I hate gloryholes. Why bump my face into wood when what I really want is inches away?

Would also like to be drilled from behind while servicing a group orally. Will hope to get some replies, I am masculine, mature, responsible and healthy.

This place is by far the cleanest and safest in the SF, and street parking nearby is free on Sunday.

A very welcoming and relatively clean bookstore in one of the not dumpy areas of SF? This is it! Ten dollars gets you two vouchers for about eight minutes each, but they seriously don't care what you do with them or if you feed the machines. I love that because I go here to get fed myself!

A row of five booths with gloryholes, two more opposite with a hole, seats in every booth, lots of movies, plus a separate booth that can easily hold four or more right by the entry to the arcade, which locks. There is a buzzer for whenever anyone enters.

I have enjoyed all kinds of encounters here, but today (Thursday) I am going shortly after lunch hoping to get a mouthful of meat while someone works my head like a pumpkin. White shirt, green shorts, white sneakers, clean shaven and love to be used in public.

If you miss me today, write and let's set up another time!

Sorry this was delayed in editing and publishing while I was out of town. Hope you still had fun! If only I'd been there... ;-) ~ Editor

Plenty of action here, even on a Friday evening before they close at 9. Got bareback fucked through a gloryhole. (Bucket list item, done!) The guy shot his load all over my chest, while my booth door was open and guys watched.

People have different opinions. I would not agree that this place has hot action.

Anyone working the counter when I have stopped in has always been very cool. There is also no hassle from anyone once you pay your entrance fee and go into the arcade. There is a very clean and working bathroom that is well supplied.

However, the arcade is not very big. There are eight booths in total – five along one wall that all have gloryholes on both sides, an additional two booths together with gloryholes, and one large booth without any gloryholes. I'm 5'10" and weigh 155, so I don't consider myself to be large. The booths here are tight. They are fine if you are the only one in the booth, but space becomes a real issue if you want to share a booth with another. The exception being the one very large booth with the gloryhole.

The crowd here tends to be older, like 50 years old plus. I assume because of the entrance fee it filters out the crackheads which is positive. I don't think there have been more than three other guys besides myself when I have been in the arcade.

Once, one of the guys seemed to be friends with the guy working the counter. He hung out chatting to him at the counter and then immediately raced back to the arcade if anyone new entered. I think it's like any other ABS, it can be very hit or miss. It's only ten dollars to enter, and it could be fun. It just all depends on what you are looking for at the moment. Whenever I stop in I have my expectations set very low.

I'm telling you, guys, this is the place for hot action! There's no other adult arcade like Bay Street Secrets.

The super-nice man at the front doesn't blink an eye when you go right up and say "One for the arcade please." Ten dollars gets you two five dollar certificates. Go right back through the doorway at the rear of the store. Pick a booth to the left or the right. I recommend one of the booths in the middle. You'll enjoy gloryholes on both sides of your booth. Plenty of guys ready to give or receive.

This last time I just left my door open so any passing guy could watch while I sucked a cock or got my ass fingered. Such a thrilling sexual experience!

This is still the best place to get your rocks off in The City. Ten dollars to enter the arcade, well maintained, clean bathroom, friendly staff, no hassles. Just be patient.

I visited June 11th around 3 o'clock. Sure, it was quiet, but that's okay. Wait a little bit and you'll get some action. Gloryholes on either side of the booth, so lots of potential.

I love to strip down naked, lube up my cock and asshole, and walk from booth to booth. This past visit I just kept my door open. While I was sucking cock, a guy came around the corner to watch. So hot! Then I got up and started to play with him. I urged him to finger my butthole and that's all it took. I blew a sweet load.

I stopped by the Secrets on Bay Street last week hoping to relive some old fun memories. The clerk was very nice and and I went to the back filled with anticipation.

There were a few guys all standing around, many blocking the doors to the booths with gloryholes. When I went in, guys on each neighboring booth went in and sat, looking through the holes. I watched two videos and they never put in coupons, showed any interest, they just sat staring through the hole.

Sadly, I left feeling a bit creeped out.

No one here. Why? Pre-COVID it was hopping. Now zero customers both day and night.

Drove from the East Bay and arrived around 4 pm. I don't think I was there fifteen minutes before I was servicing someone. Three more followed. I will definitely be going back. Worth the trip. Enjoyed every minute!

So happy to report store and arcade are open! The arcade is as busy as ever. Had lots of fun this visit.

However, the store is in danger of closing. They have signs posted saying they could close and asking people to feed the video machines.

It would be a shame to loose this place because people occupy the booths for hours and don't even use the five dollar coupon that comes with admission. Come on guys, don't ruin it for us!

Happened to go by this place today. It was closed. It appears to have permanently closed. Hoping I am wrong about this.

Google and Yelp still show it open. Maybe it's temporary or pandemic related? ~ Editor

I had a great time here. Sucked a nice uncut dick. That dick was oozing pre-cum before I touched it. It was super to feel that rock hard dick throbbing in my mouth.

The dude fucked my mouth and made me gag. He shot a huge load down my throat!

Can't wait to go back if allowed under the restrictions now in place.

Guys, I've visited this Bay Street Secrets a number of times over the last few years. Now that Nob Hill Theatre is closed – sad – this Secrets is the best, little-known gem in the Bay Area.

Many of the past reviews note the many benefits of this arcade. $5 coupon to enter, unbelievable, multiple rooms with gloryholes, patrons are left alone, owners and staff are super-nice. I've always found this place to be clean. I also appreciate the clean, functional bathroom.

It's true, many patrons are middle aged. But all of my encounters have been respectful and fun. This one time, a guy reached through the hole in my booth and fondled my cock and balls like a pro. All hard and ready to burst, I opened my booth door wide and let a guy stroke me off while two other guys watched. It was so hot! In other words, I recommend this business.

Oh god NO


Posted Sep 26 2019:
The physical layout is great. Multiple booths with gloryholes. Only five dollar fee.

Crowd is mostly tired old trolls. A previous reviewer said the crowd is "sketchy." I agree with that 100%. There was a male/female couple there and I would describe their odd behavior as suspicious. They seemed to have destroyed what little cruising there was.

I got the feeling that this place going downhill very quickly. While I may have just picked a bad time, I guess that there is no good time here. My advice is to skip this place.

Friendly staff. Five dollar ticket good for all-day use, so you can stop and have a pizza next door and then come back. Crowd was sketchy, but at times it can be hot, usually after 6 pm. Gets tourists — it's a few blocks from the Wharf — which can be fun. It's also next door to a private swing club, so guys go into Secrets while waiting for the private club to open.

Decided to go back after my first review. Had a great time! I got sucked and I sucked four really nice hard dicks! I saw everything I talked about in the previous review.

One thing that I noticed was that one guy was rejected by everyone while one guy rejected everyone — not sure what he was waiting for. There were still a lot of picky guys.

The other thing — and this is why i wanted to update my review — the undesirables hogging the booths were really bad. They would occupy the both for long periods of time. They were not having sex or watching videos. They just sat there. It was like they established residency there. It was kinda funny to see guys flee when they saw who occupied the booth.

The really bad thing about this is that three or four booths were "inhabited" this way making it very very difficult for guys to find a booth or booths to have fun in. Booth hogs, stay away! You are destroying a great place to suck dick!

It is difficult enough to find places for fun sex in San Francisco. Don't ruin this one!

I have been here several times. One was OK, one was meh, and one was boring.

Too bad because this is the perfect set up. Multiple booths with gloryholes. There is no interference at all from staff. The charge five dollars for the arcade but you get a coupon for five dollars to use in the arcade. Lunch time is typically busier than evenings. The older crowd especially dominates late afternoons and evenings.

This place is quirky. Lots of standing around and lots of looking at cell phones. Crowd is sadly older to feeble I think the word that sums things up is desperation. The senior citizens tend to reside in one of the booths. There is a buzzer that sounds when someone enters the arcade. When the buzzer sounds there is a mad dash of oldsters drooling like Pavlov's dogs to see who is coming in. It is truly pathetic to see the guys who can't get any struggling to peek into the booth to see the action.

When a guy under 40 comes in the older crowd pounces on them like a tiger killing his prey. The guys here are very picky. That's kind of funny considering the age and unattractiveness of the guys. One of the creepy things about this place is that the senior set can not accept it when some one is not interested in them. They think if they keep staring or groping their crouch you will change your mind.

OK, let me be a bit more positive. I have sucked a nice dick or two here and have also had some good blow jobs. Some of the older guys really do know how to give an awesome BJ.

This place would be much more fun with a younger crowd.

After several stops here I feel I can write a review.

Let's get the negative out of the way.
  • There are some strange dudes here.
  • This is not the place if interested in eye candy.
  • If you are very picky you won't like this place.
  • Guys sometimes hog the booths.
  • Some guys are extremely picky.
  • The place can be very dead at times.
Now for the positive.
  • Friendly staff no hassle whatsoever.
  • $5 admission good for the entire day. You get a coupon for the arcade; be sure and ask for a receipt to avoid additional charges.
  • 1 very large booth. No gloryhole.
  • 7 standard booths and all have gloryholes.
  • Most guys there are horny and want sex.
  • Usually busy around lunchtime
  • Early evenings can also be busy; I have not been there on weekends.
  • I have never left without getting dick.
A few tips:
  • Be patient.
  • Don't be super picky.
  • Keep hopes and expectations reasonable.
  • If you really want to bust a nut or help a guy bust it is very possible.
  • Come with wood and have fun.

Went here the other day in the afternoon. Wasn't expecting much since it was in between the lunch hour and when people get off work.

There were a couple guys there when I arrived. One was hideous and the other wasn't really my taste. I ended up back there alone and thought maybe I wasted my time.

Until the cute Latin guy that works the desk came back there and started to "clean up." I was sitting in a booth and decided to stick my finger through the hole. He came over and slid his nice thick Latin dick through the hole. I sucked it like a good little boy until he blasted into my mouth. It was so fucking hot! I was stroking the entire time and once he finished he sucked my dick until I exploded in his mouth. Definitely a good time there! :)

He's usually there when I go in as he's been working there for years. I hope to play with him in the future.

Hope this doesn't hurt the guy's job status. If anything, maybe the store will get more customers from this review and he'll get a raise! lol ~ Editor

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.

Edited on 05/20/11


Posted Nov 21 2010:
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.

Edited on 11/25/10


Posted Jul 21 2010:
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.

Edited on 07/27/10


Posted Jul 12 2010:
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.

Edited on 07/16/10


Posted Jun 21 2010:
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.


Posted Dec 02 2009:
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.


Posted Oct 20 2009:
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.


Posted Jun 13 2009:
Had a good time here a few weeks ago. Nice attendent, good gloryholes and the big booth near the front made for some hot action with a muscle jock!


Posted Jun 07 2009:
For now, this place is closed every Sunday and Monday. Still a great place to play around if you're in the Pier 39 area.


Posted May 06 2009:
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.


Posted May 04 2009:
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.


Posted Jul 08 2008:
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.


Posted Oct 14 2007:
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.


Posted Sep 29 2007:
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.


Posted Sep 24 2007:
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.


Posted Sep 14 2007:
Often I find action here. Sucked a hot married guy's cock recently. I usually get one good, tasty load each visit.


Posted Mar 19 2007:
I have been going there for
years and it's not good anymore. It's the same people all the time. Five or more guys wait around for the maybe
one cute guy of the day to
come in and then they all
fight for it like dogs in
heat. It's boring. There are better places to go.


Posted Jan 02 2007:
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.


Posted Dec 12 2006:
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!

This place is a tiny hole in the wall dump. No hot guys here!


Posted Oct 09 2006:
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.


Posted May 19 2006:
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!


Posted May 03 2006:
Great straight and bi tourist action here since it's close to Fisherman's Wharf. Clean place with clean, hung customers -- lots of big uncut tourist cock!


Posted May 02 2006:
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.


Posted Apr 16 2006:
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.

This place is great with low attitude. It's all about the action. 3 to 6 pm is prime.

The trouble here is that there are too many cocksuckers looking for the same ‘straight' guy. The queens are also too aggressive that they scare away any straight boys when they do appear.

This place is hot for quick action. I hooked up with a construction worker last week. He kept getting beeped on his pagers and leaving to answer it, but kept coming back for more until he finally dropped his load.

I paid for the arcade and got way more than my money's worth. I sucked four delicious, hard cocks and had mine sucked by two different mouths.

Place has eight booths, and seven have gloryholes. One has two in one wall. The 8th booth is huge -- four guys could go at it inside. There's a few regular lurkers that can kill the mood, but you can get some nice pieces from the Wharf.

Yup, almost every booth has holes, the management doesn't seem to mind what's happening, and it seems to attract some nice tourists and hot young guys.

There are gloryholes throughout and the staff is cool.

I've been here dozens of times and each time I
walk away more amazed. If you like 'no questions'
asked type of service then this place is the
best. The staff is
very cool and unconcerned. It's much cleaner than
Arcades on Folsom Street.
