The location has two spaces for movies that you might see in a theater. The front space has couches and the back space wooden benches. There is a hall between the two that has bathrooms on one side and video booths on the other.

Awhile back the booths showed porn, but because of a recently passed law they cannot show or sell pornographic movies so they mostly show wrestling videos.

Though I have seen a few people in their 20's and 30's, the venue attracts an older crowd. For me, it has been hit or miss, but I can say that of most places. But when I have had fun, I have had lots.

Beware of the couches. I walked away with two bites. Whatever they do they need to remove their couches. The wooden benches are fine. After all of their signs they could at least provide a safe area for their patrons. Nobody wants bedbugs.

I have been to this place twice this year, and quite frankly I think it is such a waste of a good place. They now have signs all over that due to a NY court decision they are not allowed to play porn on their screens. So you go in, and you are not only turned off by the scary old dudes who all walk around like zombies in a desperate attempt to get some action, but in the case you might find someone on the attractive side, the mood is just so odd because of the no porn policy that somehow you cant really be turned off. Yes, I know no one goes there to watch the movies.

I do suggest that they revise their no porn policy and perhaps get with the times. There are still younger gays who would totally be into the booth/cruise scene but you need to create a space that caters to them. At this rate I think this place will most likely not survive another year.

I visited Les Hommes on a Tuesday afternoon. It's about what I expected. There were a dozen or so men there — many quite a bit older, but I had a good time with a couple of guys who were under 50.

The place is small, dark, and dingy. But it's not filthy, and the guys who run the place are friendly and accommodating.

There are two areas that show non-porn movies, and booths that show porn. They also offer a bag and coat check for a dollar extra.

It's nothing special. But if you find yourself in the Upper West Side and the mood strikes, it's worth checking out.

Was here on Saturday night around 9 and I was surprised. I expected to see only a bunch of scary old dudes, but there were actually some hot guys 30 to 50. I had lots of fun, came three times, and left happy. I'll go back.

I went to this place on a Friday in August around when they opened. The clerk was nice enough to tell me there was only one guy watching videos. I was cool with that as I just wanted to check the place out.

He said the most traffic starts after 4 or 5, so there's that. The porn is in the booths. Looks like most of the hookups happen there also, but the flirting happens wherever it needs to.

Cool spot, will have to check back when I have more balls.

Went here on a Tuesday around 7 and it looked like a gay senior center. I was the only one in there under 50. But I got lucky. A hot young guy was standing outside and followed me in. We went in a booth and had awesome sex for an hour. When we finished, the old guys were all over me so I left quick.

The price has not only gone up to $12, but there is now no re-entry either. If you are young, reasonably attractive or want to get off without spending the whole day, I have found that the best time for this place is 12:30 to 2 pm. For some reason after 2:30 the place fills up with a lot of badly groomed, out of shape seniors, some who have a hard time walking, plus a whole range of misfits with desperation in their eyes who stick around to the dinner hour.

This place is one of the few of its kind left in NYC. It's a good, safe rendezvous spot for Craigs List hookups and out of towners who want more than a gloryhole, particularly during the day. Sure, there are some old dudes who hang out here, but I just ignore them. Can be busy, can be quiet. Be patient because I have given and taken some hot loads here.

I go there frequently and it's true the crowd is old. Occasionally some great dudes pop in. The other day this Indian looking guy was in, but did not go out with anyone, seemed bored. Later a Hispanic guy came in and they got into a booth. That Hispanic guy fucked the Indian guy so hard the booth was shaking. You could hear them loud in the hallway. I came just listening to them from the next booth. Wish they had gloryholes.

I live close by and visited for the first time this week. Has free booths with movie and the attendant does not bother at all, but also a sad crowd seemingly all in their 80s. Where are the others? I guess I was lucky a gorgeous Indian guy walked in and I fucked him for almost an hour. We had fun.

You pay $10 bucks to get into the video viewing area. There was a consistent flow of guys from noon through the dinner hour, mainly older guys, but a few younger hotties. I sucked a decent amount of cocks. There was lots of cocksucking going on in the booths and in the back viewing area. Staff were totally cool and never bothered any of the guys cruising the booths and video viewing area.

You pay $10 but nobody hassles or screams at you like bookstores and you can stay as long as you like. Action, though, can be very unpredictable and the place can be filled with older guys. Still I have gotten some really first rate edging blowjobs here and sucked some really nice and juicy cocks. I sucked one married dude off twice. Best time seems to be 12:30 to 2 pm.

Mostly old trolls, $10 to get in, Mondays are very busy, but I'd go any weekday around 1 pm for lunch breaks, and 4 to 7 pm for after work when straight business guys are looking for release. Just the other day I sucked off a guy stopping by before heading to the gym.

I moved into the neighborhood a year ago, and I have tried Les Hommes at a number of different times (weekdays, weekends, lunchtime, after work, late nights, etc.). In my experience, the best times are weekdays after work. Lots of businessmen heading home, probably to their wives, and usually the guys are 30-40 years of age. Like any place, the scene is hit-or-miss. I have also arranged to meet a guy (or guys) there, too. It is really the only place on the Upper West Side (other than Central Park) for public sex.

The place looks a bit dodgy from the outside. Look for the "Laundromat" sign, as Les Hommes only has a subtle sign painted on its door, but it is worth it to pay the $10. There is a PG-rated movie in the front room and an X-rated film in the back room. Each of the private booths (large enough for 3 to play comfortably) have different gay porn playing.

Despite the negative reviews, I stopped by mid-afternoon on a rainy Sunday and screwed a hot Asian guy's throat before unloading all the way back there. We were both in our 40s. Not too busy (which is what I prefer) and we could both use the same booth without any hassle. Definitely not the place for 20- to 30-something poseurs, and there might be a troll or two, but I was definitely satisfied. In and out in about 20 minutes!

I've visited this place twice over the past three weeks. You pay $10 to enter the play area. They play fairly hot porn in the booths. Both times there were five or six guys, all at least twice my age. I stuck around for maybe a half hour each time until I finally gave up.

I had not been there for quite some time but I went today. I had a feeling some of the other comments were out of line. I can only say what I saw today and it was not bad. This is not a place for chicken. Most guys were forty-plus, no one was extremely overweight and a few of the guys were very attractive. They're showing porn on the rear screen and I saw no monitors. My impression is someone is trying to run this place down with comments, for whatever reason.

How bad is this place? I'm in my late forties, balding, wear bifocals, am about ten pounds overweight, and I was by far the hottest guy. There were about eight other guys there: one looked to be in his eighties, three were at least three hundred pounds, one was about 6'3" and a hundred and forty pounds, one guy kept sticking his ass out of the booth and snapping his jock strap, one was wearing a velour track suit and gold chains and one was simply snoring. Please just take the $10 you would have spent here and give it to a homeless guy.

Not very clean and you should bring your own toilet paper if you dare use the bathroom. The mostly Indian/Pakistani staff are aware but don't care what goes on there. If you are in a booth you can do whatever you like.

The guys are mostly older white guys, 45+, and black, Hispanic, and Asian guys around 30-40. The young and cute almost never go there.

Only really good on after-work hours or late weekends when the pretend straight guys stop off before home.

Nobody who goes there, young, old, black, white, fem, butch, is the type of man wanted by anybody who goes there! What's the point? It makes money just because it's a leftover from the pre-Giuliani days! Not worth $10!

Would that there was a word adequate to describe this dump. I ventured in a few days ago and the whole place reeked of shit. It literally smelled like human feces. I told one of the employees and he did nothing. No great loss, however, as the crowd was so repulsive. Rather than going there just burn a ten dollar bill. You'll get more pleasure out of it.

The place seemed pretty clean. There was a mixture of ages, only one other person my age (sixty). I wasn't there very long before a thirties guy invited me into his booth. I was somewhat leery due to the pickpocket warning sign in the sales area, so I was careful. He was a great kisser and gave great head. I saw some other younger guys who also didn't seem to be age particular. The 'theater' is not porn, the video booths are. Not all of the booths were running but there were enough for the small number of people. I'll go back.

I had a fun, sleazy time here just recently. I have to admit that I'm not a peepshow kind of guy. I've known about this joint for years, but never went in. It's seriously down and dirty; I was freaked out for about five minutes and ready to run out, but then I sort of let that go and started to get into the non-cosmetic nastiness. I needed to get my cock sucked and got the job done and more. Sure, it helped that I'm blond, young and fit, but I had no trouble meeting up with guys. I don't even mind feeding an older guy (hey, we're all going to be trolls one day or another). And the older guys were kind, even helpful about 'watching for the attendants.' I got off on the sleaziness, the cum all over the place, the old cocksucker waiting on his knees in an open stall, the wrestling vids. I was in there for an hour getting sucked and jacking off with a variety of guys--including a sexy construction worker, married of course. Best of all, I met a terrific guy in the same line of business as me--shared a load and had a good laugh over the pig sty we were enjoying and even exchanged cards. Definitely not for the finicky, but if you need to unload fast, need a dose of honest to goodness sleaze--check it out.
