Many of the rooms are closed, very few open. Very empty place for the arcade and not much merchandise, on top the attendants are rude. Good luck

As of September 8, 2023 the arcade area is closed due to repairs. They do not have a day to reopen. Many machines out of order.

New to the area and have explored a few local shops but always disappointed with the action until now. Have been here twice and both times have had at least four encounters with some hot guys.

First time last week it was kind of dead, found myself in the back corner gloryhole booth when I got lucky a hot young and hung Latino decided to give me his cock. I started with oral and then turned around and was pleased at how quickly he slid right in. I was not quiet and the arcade knew what was happening, so of course four more guys lined up to take their turns when he left. After that I dropped into the cinema and sucked off two older guys. I was hoping that one would pound me while I sucked off the other but no go.

Last night I decided to try it again. Arrived to a full parking lot and got excited. Walked through the arcade which was empty, so checked out the cinema. About twenty guys and two females. One of the females had their attention taking load after load on her breasts. I was hoping that I could get into the action, but nobody looked ready for that much attention so I went back to the booths.

This time I tried booth 7, an oversized booth with a bench. Got naked, lubed up, and unlocked the door. Pretty soon those horned up guys where lined up again. First guy was another hot and hung Latino, followed by a nice small one, then a BBC, and finally a young and hung white guy. Well worth the money. Still want to be the center of attention in the cinema but might have to find some tops to plan that with.

Name and ownership change. Now is Taboo, part of the chain store. Still the cleanest arcade of all in Portland, the staff is friendly. They added a cinema.

Wow! Easily the cleanest arcade I've ever been in.

Multiple booths with gloryholes, and not just ones that looks like they were created with a pocket knife. Nice, round, big — big enough for cock and balls — and a nice rounded collar around it — no splinters in your junk.

Paper towel dispenser on the wall, a small shelf for a drink or something, and a small waste basket.

Excellent video selection and you seem to get a good amount of time for your money. I was here on a Thursday after 11 pm and it was cool and rainy, so not a huge amount of traffic. Should be better tonight! Have fun!

Hands down, the cleanest video store in town. The janitor literally stands there waiting for someone to exit a booth so he can clean it. It's like the housekeepers in a hotel waiting for people to check out so they can immediately make up the room. The staff won't bother you unless you're a troublemaker. There are usually some older guys and some more shy guys, and almost always several Latino guys conversing in Spanish. If you're looking to give or get oral, you'll usually be able to score here and leave happy. About half the booths have gloryholes.

i stopped by at just the right time yesterday. A super-hot white 19 to 21 year-old guy was attracting so much attention. He was getting ready to leave. I came in and just went into a glory hole booth and sure enough he went into the next booth. I sucked him completely dry. He came twice. Hot, hot, hot.

No problem with people sharing a booth and you can have fun, but the clerks and cleaning crew just kept on coming in the back to destroy the mood of the customers. Way too much disturbance for an ABS even though they have gloryhole signs posted outside each booth.

Everytime I've been here, there is usually nobody in the arcades. Also, the janitors are always lurking around, cleaning. I keep visiting to see if it changes, but it doesn't.

The arcade is small but most of the booths are designed to accommodate two people. The staff do not seem to care as long as you feed the machines. The gloryholes are nice and big. This place is in my top five place of all time to go cruise. It is clean and professional and that cute guy with that gorgeous ass that let me butt-fuck him really made my night.


Posted Apr 23 2009:
Most underrated place in Portland, if you ask me. Sure, it's hit-or-miss (what bookstore isn't?) but if you're into tradesmen and working class guys, men who want to get sucked off during their lunch break or on the way home from work, you need to check out this place. It is very clean, the staff almost never hassle people and there is a lot of variety in the booth design (gloryholes, glass, oversized, etc.). I've had some hot action there many times, especially between 1 and 3 pm and 5 to 6 pm.


Posted Jul 17 2008:
Excellent! Clean and sparkling, kept spotless. Some hot guys too, though it is a bit out of the way and not always that busy. Still, I have had some great action there.


Posted Oct 08 2006:
I fucked two cocks here through the gloryhole and showed off for anther guy through the buddy window. A good time.


Posted Sep 25 2006:
I was in town for a few days. This place was as great as I had remembered it to be from a few years back. Sucked so much dick my jaws ached. Great old fashion early 1980s gloryhole heaven. Felt like I was in a time warp. Best time seemed to be during the day.


Posted Nov 16 2005:
Just there again. Wonderful time! There are always trolls, so get over it boys! I sucked one guy off and he came three times! The place is kept almost sparkling. Booths are hosed down the second you leave it. Cruising times vary. Relax and check out the rentals; hotties will come in. Trust me. Always a hot cock in this land we call Paradise!


Posted Nov 08 2005:
Now they are harassing customers to stay in the booths. They are also selling all their
gay vodeo stock. Decidedly unfriendly.


Posted Sep 27 2005:
Paradise lost... This used to be the hottest place in Portland, now it's not. I visit this place whenever I'm in town but haven't until recently for about year. I was shocked during my last visit to find new management has made this one time cruising paradise cruiser-unfriendly. You used to be able to hang out in the arcade section and wait for action but no more! I guess they want all the guys to stay out of the arcade and pretend they're browsing the porn rentals, then when fresh meat comes into the store and heads back to the arcade fifteen guys follow him back to his booth. They are killing the traffic. Evenings used to be prime time, but no more! Shy guys used to be able to slip unnoticed into the arcade to get sucked, now it's too obvious. The arcade section used to be crowded with lots of guys spending lots of money, but no more. Don't they realize that it was the easy blowjobs that attracted the customers.


Posted Aug 15 2005:
I went there Saturday around 2 am and I couldn't believe how busy it was! I must have cum four or five times! I definitely recommend this spot.


Posted Feb 10 2005:
The staff are becoming unfriendly. The place is not nearly as busy as it use to be. It's not worth a visit.


Posted Aug 20 2004:
This place is not as busy as it used to be! The clerks yell at patrons to spend money or get out.


Posted Jul 14 2004:
A clerk came back to harangue a guy for checking doorknobs too much, and was telling guys not to loiter.


Posted Apr 06 2004:
This place is pretty hit or miss. There are typically plenty of guys and the occasional girl of varying quality. The staff has done a good job of making it a much friendlier place to cruise.


Posted Mar 29 2004:
This place should be avoided unless you enjoy major trollage that will not quit, and a management that treats young customers like felons. I've never seen a business trying so hard to implode by harassing customers. I've seen them bother people, and the same not-too-bright management recently decided it was my turn.


Posted Oct 21 2003:
This place is great early evenings and late at night. As everyone else has said, that little janitor is way too busy wiping up the cum. You barely get your pants zipped and he is there with a towel and window cleaner in hand. I have found the clerks to be very rude if you are not in a booth spending money. If you can overlook that, you can have some fun.


Posted Mar 27 2003:
This is a great place. I was a forty year old, first timer that got to suck a sweetie for the first time. I'm going back.


Posted Feb 28 2003:
I work close to there and periodically stop in for some afternoon delight. There is always a willing mouth and in many recent cases, someone bending over generously. I love this place. It's clean, hassle free, and there are large rooms.
