While this is the same physical space as the former University Books & Video, it has been completely gutted and there is no longer an arcade, nor are there any plans to add one.

This is not a place for cruising, but rather a store that sells sex products. The other Caliente in Hialeah does still have an arcade, however.

Place has re-opened. Now called Caliente. Just went in for a second. Modern, clean, and a great place for couples to buy lingerie, toys, etc.

If it has anything to do with the Hialeah location, let's hope horny Latin men stop by from time to time and go to the video booths.

Subject: Probably Permanently Closed
The renovations sign has been ripped down from the door. The store is still closed and now there is a dumpster out in front being filled up with materials from inside. I would say this store is history. Renovations to an adult book store would not take a year.


Their Facebook page is still online so I sent a quick message asking them for an update. Of course, anyone could do that or give them a phone call. ;-)

Also, the store is part of the coast-to-coat X-Spot chain. This store's website comes up with the message "Error establishing a database connection," and so do the sites for their other stores. I hope they fix that.

Anyhow, I've placed a note on this page and added the store to my list. ~ Editor

Went today and it's still closed with old sign still up and written on with graffiti. I believe it's permanently closed.

What a shame. Can someone find out if it is?


Their Facebook page has a post from 15 hours ago, as I write this. Their phone number is 305-227-0109.

With my schedule, I don't have time to follow up on this. I have to rely on the cruisers who use CFS. How about if you make a phone call or contact them through FB?

Whatever you find out, please come back and post another review so we'll all know. Thanks! ~ Editor

Went to the bookstore today and it is closed. Sign on door says closed for remodeling. I hope that is really the case.


I found their web site. It links to a Facebook page where I saw a link shared an hour ago. I'll assume the business is ongoing and just temporarily closed until there's further information. ~ Editor

I have been here several times now since January, usually once a month when I have an urge to suck a nice cock. With some patience, you will get the right guy or guys in the next door booth with a very impressive package. One I've had the pleasure to suck three of the times, so he is either an employee (doubtful) or someone that hangs out there or from one of the nearby stores who keeps an eye out for handsome bi bottoms.

Not a great place. Too many guys just standing around. It seems to be a gathering place for where older guys come to visit each other. I did have one great encounter when a guy came in my booth. Both of us got naked and sucked the dick in the gloryhole. But that was a one time thing.

Place is hit or miss. However, some people don't understand gloryhole rules. Oral bottoms that are in the booth first have a right to stay as long as putting money. If another oral bottom enters the adjacent booth he should leave if he is not looking to be serviced to allow other oral tops to use the the booth.

Place has an older crowd, but from time to time, hung Latinos come in, maybe from the adjacent tire place, and just want to be serviced and leave.

Hit or miss like most places, it gets lots of older Hispanic men, and some are hot, some are not. It has nice sized gloryholes and you can play 2 in a booth as long as you are dropping money. The clerk will occasionally tell people to get in booths and drop money. There is one Hispanic guy who hangs out all the time, and he has 8 inches of uncut meat and is always willing to plunge his sweet fat dick deep in my hole. He doesn't speak a lick of English, but "I want your ass" is universal. This place is worth the trip, but again it is hit or miss.

This place is great and severely under-utilized! There are always guys here, but there could be more. The staff leaves you alone and doesn't bother you at all. I often find cock to suck and an ass to breed within minutes of arriving.

Been there many times and caught up with two hot tamales and we had a blast: one in the parking lot and the other in a booth. Many guys are Ok for a pity fucks if you can't wait but if you wait then you will be rewarded like I have.

It's hit-or-miss. Every time I go there are a lot of old guys waiting to see who goes in and if you're young they all follow you.

This place is filled with queens who just stand around and giggle all the time. They are friends of the staff and just hang out all night and laugh and scream by the register and outside. It is annoying and useless. No one stays around because of it.

I give it a three on a scale of ten. I've met a few hot Latin thugs here who just wanted to be sucked off. One demanded to fuck me, which I almost never do. But he insisted. However, it is usually only older guys standing around (like pretty much everywhere else). Oh, and the staff typically doesn't bother people except the short, thin, Arab guy who makes it his job to harass people.

This place is great. The time of day you go is important though. Large range of guys, from young to older. Three sets of the booths have gloryholes and the rest can be for one-on-one. I've never had a problem with staff.

It's hit-or-miss but usually busy. Sometimes really hot young Latinos are there ready to blow and go. There is a new family restaurant next door that kills the car cruising.

I have been successful here every time. On the last occasion I got into a booth with a hot Latino man in great shape and we could have stayed hours. Sucking, licking and kissing, no one bothered us. The hour cost me $0.00.

What happened to this place? It used to be so hot. I used to get tons of action there even when they didn't have doors on the booths. Lunchtime used to be off the hook. And now it's not good at all.

ReportReport

This place has gone down hill and I find myself going there less and less. It is true that the same old fat guys are always there, and the manager is far less likely to allow folks to stand around. Usually, however, at night, the guys working will watch the monitors, but they don't really harass you unless you are in a booth and don't put in money.

ReportReport

I will keep trying, but so far it's not good. I've been there up to six times in a week trying to find the right time. It's mostly older Cuban men with big bellies. There are a few gloryholes and a few tiny peepholes. The manager watches on close circuit TV and yells via the loud speaker to get in rooms and spend money.

Great place to meet hot guys, especially weekend late nights until the early morning hours. If you didn't hook up at the bar, then stop by one of the gloryhole booths and get what you couldn't find. The staff is friendly and the guy behind the counter is tall, handsome, hung and hot! Plenty of stalls and guys to choose from.

I had an odd experience here. I used to go here all the time and had good times, but had stopped since I started working in another city. I just went back and checked this place out, and there was only one guy cruising. This was at lunchtime. The guy was not attractive. There was a girl working the front desk (don't know why this always freaks me out--I always expect a man) and she was watching the booths like a hawk on the camera system. She never said anything, but I felt uncomfortable.

I visited this past weekend and it was hot! If you're into Latins, check it out. There were old and young guys. I love seeing a dark uncut cock come through that gloryhole. The staff was not harassing the patrons.

On Sunday afternoon I sucked five straight guys, and shot my load in a couple of warm mouths.

The doors are back on and so is the action! I went into a booth with a guy in his twenties and sucked him dry. As soon as we finished, there was another very muscular guy in his forties standing around in the hall. I went right back in the booth with him and nearly drowned him with all my cum. He coughed some but swallowed every drop!

ReportReport

If mutual watching of jacking off is your thing, then this place can be hot. Because there are no doors and the booths are across from one another, this is not the place to suck dick or get fucked. The manager's office is actually back where the booths are, but they usually keep the door closed. However, if you want to watch and just jack off with someone, I have seen many cute guys here. I jacked off with three different guys yesterday and all were hot and Latin. You can go in booths across from one another and then turn sideways to watch. You can also generally hear when someone is walking down the hallway so that you can turn around without being seen. Lunchtime is great for businessmen, worker men, and college guys.

They removed the doors and boarded up the gloryholes. You can still see some action, but it's very open and the guy working there comes back often.

ReportReport

Posted May 12 2002:
In the arcade, all the doors are removed and the gloryholes are covered over by metal sheets bolted to the walls. A couple frustrated guys were lingering about looking unsure as to what to do next. Pretty big disappointment actually, since this is a very clean place located near the convergance of three or so freeways and Florida International University. I guess the cops or an opportunistic politician made this place a target. For now it's not really a fruitful destination for gloryhole type cruising. Hopefully someone will post when the doors, gloryholes are restored.
