I was here since the last review but it was dead. Anybody go there? The clerks seemed nice but you need to buy like ten dollars of paper dollars I think.

Years ago I had my cock sucked here. If I am horny enough I would take one in my mouth, two would be hotter.

What the situation? Anybody going there soon?

Stopped by hoping for some action and they were open. Minimum arcade entry five dollars gets you five coupons for the video machines.

First the video selection is very poor, i.e. your iPhone is lot better for choice of videos. There are maybe eight to ten booths with a hard door but only half have a gloryhole. The holes are huge and irregular, about eight to ten inches across so not anonymous really.

I was there at early afternoon and only one guy there who was watching video and never took out his cock or showed any interest in mine. Poor videos so I left, no fun! Doubt this place ever a good choice even if very horny! Save UR money for Y Not across the street since Adult Video burned down!

Popped in Thursday. I came walking in the shop. It was about 2. I hung around. I kept looking for gloryhole booths.

I found one with a gloryhole and a nice Asian man followed me into the booth. He immediately took off his shirt, unbuckled his belt, and slid his jeans off half way, exposing and shoving his clean hard Asian cock into my mouth as he was standing and I was sitting on the booth chair.

After a few minutes he bent from his standing point over me. He bent down to my raging hard white smooth 7" cock slurping. Not much action but a little is better than none.

I was here on September 20, 2018 around 10:30 am. Only one other person in the arcade, kind of dead. I have been here many times in the past and have given lots of wonderful blow jobs here and received a few.

This place has lots of potential. Most of the booths are connected by gloryholes and there is an on site bathroom. However there is a $10 cover charge to use the arcade, but they give you $10 in coupons to use for the arcade.

Lately though, the clientele has been less than desirable. Many trolls and people who can't take no for an answer. You're better off going to Y Not down the street.

I don't see my first review, but maybe it's still being processed.

I went back again on a Saturday night and had a bit disappointing experience. I was there maybe forty-five minutes, possibly a record for an adult store, and they definitely don't seem to monitor how long people are there. There was even one guy who seemed to be coming in and out, so they may even allow "in and out privileges."

But once again, there was one super creepy guy there the whole time. He was in a shadowed spot, and after thirty minutes of giving no signals to him, when I did go in a booth he was literally checking the door every 30 seconds to see if I'd unlocked it.

There were only three other people there, which seemed odd for a Saturday night. Two seemed normal, but were sexing in a booth for most of that time. The third guy, as above, just came in and out. But he also seemed a bit odd as he'd spend like one coupon, then leave and be outside for a while again.

It seems the location suffers from the normal amount of adult store hit and miss, but due to it being more like a five dollar entry club, it seems to have a much higher number of those of questionable intelligence. Which depending on your activity, can be much more risky than a normal shop.

Sure enough, there's always a delay. And really guys, take a hint: "No means no." ~ Editor

I actually arrived here by accident trying to get to a different shop going off of memory of where that shop would be. This one actually turned out better than the other shop.

Like the previous review, the video booths are sort of in a closed off area inside the store. They don't yell "get in the booths" like some places do, and a few were in that area just standing around or cruising.

There was one guy waiting who I nodded in towards the booth I went in. He was pretty hung and I loved sucking on his cock. Unfortunately he wanted a break and left instead of unloading.

After that things got sketchy. There were about three very unattractive guys; one Hispanic, and two Asian. The Hispanic saw the first guy with me leave, and I went to close the door as I saw him coming towards it. I had to physically fight, hard, to pull the door closed and lock it. He kept yanking on the door after, and actually jarred it so hard I could see the wood strain and get messed up a little. I don't know if he was mentally disabled or what, but he just did not get the signal that I wasn't interested at all.

Those three guys were cycling so frequently at my door there was literally about thirty seconds between each check.

Normally at adult shops you don't have to lock your door and hide from those you aren't interested in. To most a wave or head shake is enough and a locked door isn't needed. I don't know if these guys were more bold and insistent because the place isn't directly watched, or if they were all a bit off mentally or what.

I may try again tonight and see if it's any different. But my first visit was a mix of a very hot encounter, and a brush with some very dangerous and unsafe seeming people.

Thanks so much for this detailed review. I have a list of reviews with "dos and don'ts" to update the guides for cruisers Keith wrote years ago. I'n adding this to that list. What those three guys did, especially the one, is definitely a don't. ~ Editor

It cost five dollars to get five video coupons, but you really don't need them. They don't seem to care if you don't feed the machines.

The place looked dead when I got there at 1:00 pm. I checked out the rooms, small and no gloryholes to be seen. Maybe they are there and I couldn't see them. Two guys loitering, good sign, loitering means people do stuff here.

One booth had a light on and was locked. When a guy came out I stepped in. A guy with a thick cock was stroking. I said hi and took my shirt off and pulled my pants down and got on my knees and got to sucking his cock.

He had been edging and the previous guy had clearly been sucking this wet cock. He loved my skill and nursed himself a little while, then got his cock in my throat pumped his load out. He thanked me and headed out.

Five more guys visited me in the booth, three of them took me up on my request to fuck me in the ass. One of them unloaded in my ass. The other four fed me a load after my excellent cock sucking.

Two hours on a Friday afternoon and five loads of cum, three cocks up my ass. Good action by most standards, but when I left it was dead again. Places can be streaky like that. The booths a bit too small to share and cramped for getting fucked.

Mix of young hot dudes and creepy old dudes. The old dudes mind their manners. One clean cut dad type fucked my skinny Asian ass and shot in me. He's hot, hope I get him again.

I was just there. No gloryholes, and I bought the five paper coupons for five bucks like it says on the door, but you actually do not have to do this. I took a room, locked the door, started the viewer. When someone tried to open the door I let him in. This cool well-built older Latino guy came in and started feeling me up. I already had my pants down to my ankles and he went to business. He sucked me hard and pushed me gently around and licked my ass, too. Finally he settled in as best he could and I pumped and fucked his face till I shot a load in his mouth. The guy waited awhile and blew me a second time, never asking me to blow him at all. We talked too, and he was really a nice guy. We were both visitors from out of town and had no chance of striking up a relationship, but I wished we could have.


Posted Jan 23 2009:
I agree about the hot Latin guys here! Funny how they won't kiss, but boy do they like to take it up the butt. Rooms are small but the staff leaves you alone and the fucking is great. Clean, hot, and convenient way to get off for $5.


Posted Oct 28 2008:
I've seen some disgusting things here, and then I've seen some pretty hot straight-looking men that don't mind jacking off in front of you, or having their balls sucked. The old asshole upfront is not cool like the Filipino man I usually see.


Posted Apr 06 2008:
Anytime I've gone I end up either on my knees sucking or getting my dick blown. It's my favorite place. Lots of ages and colors and hot Latin boys!


Posted Jun 11 2007:
The best place to suck dick and there's parking available. I'm going there now!


Posted Feb 22 2007:
Heads Up!
No good anymore. They have a security guard who makes sure nobody is doing anything recreational. He threatens to call the police after catching you. Not worth the trouble!


Posted Oct 28 2005:
This truly was the greatest cruising spot in the USA. I couldn't even begin to tell you my heartbreak over the changes.


Posted Apr 18 2005:
Boy, this place is not what it used to be in the good old days. Before June, 2001 this was one of the best stores in the Bay Area for straight and gay trade. The store has been sold twice and is now called Secrets. There used to be gloryholes in booths 1 to 7 but they were covered by the second owner. If you put some time in during the right times of the day you can get lucky.
Other than that the place can be dead for long periods of time. Make sure you buy your coupons then the staff does not care what you do. That is if there is something to do.


Posted Feb 16 2004:
This is a nice place with a friendly staff. There are no gloryholes here and very few guys as well. The guys that do come are rarely hot, mostly older, out-of-shape men.


Posted Feb 03 2004:
I checked this place out around 8 pm tonight. There are no gloryholes and no real action. The owner is friendly enough and the facilities are nice, but it doesn't seem to be the right environment for heavy playing.


Posted Dec 02 2003:
Fridays and Saturdays are a great time to meet young guys here.


Posted Jan 09 2003:
Lately, there is absolutely no action here. The new owner completely screwed up the fun. I have more luck picking up horny guys as they leave the front door!


Posted Jan 01 2003:
There is no buddy booth and the holes have been covered for over a year. No action there ever.


Posted Sep 23 2002:
I went here many times last week and sucked a number of hot young guys. I got sucked a number of times too. The attendants/cashiers don't seem to care what the guys do anymore in the back like they used to. Maybe they realized business is down when guys don't get to do what they want. Anyway, come see this place again. It's lots of fun around lunchtime or after work. I know I will come back for more.


Posted Aug 10 2002:
The clerk here is aggressive about anyone having fun. He is on you in a minute (literally) if you buddy up in a booth. I'd avoid this place!


Posted Jul 29 2002:
I always score at this place. It's best with the attendant with the long hair and beard. He doesn't seem to care. Today I sucked an older man with an uncut dick and huge balls and then a hot latino, both during the 1 pm hour.


Posted Oct 16 2001:
Closed circuit TV seems to be focused on the east line of booths. The few booths on the west side don't seem to be monitored at all.


Posted Jul 22 2001:
Jacks is now under new ownership and the pressure from the new owners and request from the city have caused the gloryholes to be covered. With all the cameras and the mean clerks this is no place to get action anymore. It's all dried up.


Posted Jul 07 2001:
Gloryholes have been boarded up. Business has fallen. Maybe in a couple of weeks, the holes will return.


Posted Jul 06 2001:
All the gloryholes have been boarded up.
