A good place. There's nice guys at the counter and easy free parking across the street. No door but hey, that adds to the fun being watched. I especially enjoy the mature black men here.

There is an older dark haired white guy that works here sometimes, rude and walks the rooms looking to bust people. If you are in the back too long enjoying yourself, he will flick your booth's light on/off for you to leave.

In Virginia, bookstores with arcades do not have doors on their booths, so that's the first thing you'll notice here.

This is a very small place with about 10 doorless booths, all within 10 feet of the clerk. If you are in this place for more than 30 seconds, you will reek of cigarettes for the rest of the day. Every nook & cranny is just saturated with years of cigarette smoke. It's awful.

The crowd was a few younger Black guys being chased around by older White guys. So no one hooked up with anyone.

Located half a block off of a seemingly busy shopping area. There is a small parking garage just steps away and across the street for convenient parking. I arrived at 2 pm on a Tuesday. A college-type kid was just leaving. A few moments later, I opened the door and entered the bookstore.

Once in, you are immediately met by a locked door which the bookstore employee must buzz you into. When allowed in you'll immediately notice that it's a pretty small bookstore. To the left is a raised area where the employee sits. Just ahead and left is a wall of porn magazines (mostly gay) and a video booth. To your right and back towards the street are DVDs arranged on two walls. Ahead and slightly to the right are two more booths.

None of the booths have doors, but I didn't get the impression that they're really needed since the atmosphere seemed very relaxed and low-key. There were three other guys besides myself loitering around.
One white guy, 35-40 years old, about 6', one black guy, probably about 30 years old, maybe 6'4, and a younger (in his 20's) Hispanic college kid.

I walked into one of the booths, the one furthest away from the front door, to get the lay of the land. Many arcades have some sort of screen saver or menu idling until you drop in coins or tokens. The screens here are basically off until you add tokens. It is very dark.
I hesitated a moment and the white guy walked up to the doorway and jingled tokens in his hand -- ah, I needed tokens here, not dollar bills.

As I moved out of the booth I gave him a smile and said "Hi" and found myself face to face with the clerk who was coming to tell me that I needed tokens. I explored the small store a bit more, but decided to come back next time I am in Richmond since I had to get to the airport. I really wanted to get my lips around that black guys cock and probably would've been able to suck the white guy off as well, but I didn't have time.

It seems like a very laid back place and I could definitely see spending an hour or so swallowing as many loads as were available. Nice place, with great parking and a good setup if you're horny and looking to spend some time with like minded men.

I was there today for the first time. There were a few other men there. Place seemed private enough for things to happen. I have a question though. If I want to be used by the men there is there some signal or something I need to do so the men there know I'm looking to be used ? Any input will help. Thanks.

This place can be pretty hot at times. I usually stop there when I'm in town, and almost always get some action. The booths are almost all facing each other, so jerking off is easy with another guy. The two booths at the end of the hallway get most action as they are the most out of site. If you are in the booths down the short hallway (to the right after you enter booth area) you can watch the guy in the booth across the way jerk off.

Occasionally staff will walk through, but I've only seen that happen once. Staff is pretty laid back and don't bother you, but use common sense. Mainly you will find guys 30+, but I did suck off a really hot college guy one time.

This place is hot with lots of gays that go here trying to keep it hidden. They do not like having to compete.

This place kind of sucked -- no pun intended. No doors on the booths, and only a couple of them at that. I would not recommend.

I visited this place on a Sunday afternoon recently looking for some action, and it was pretty dead. The clerk was grumpy and nasty for no apparent reason. The booths were open (no doors). Having given up on anything happening there, I found the video selection to be useless -- two hetero videos and one bad gay video. What a waste of time all around.

One of the clerks cruises heavily. I've seen him suck dick and he sometimes locks the front door to keep others out while he gets his.

Went there on a Thursday night. Not heavily populated, however, those that showed up readily took my offer to relieve them of their burden. Three of them were kind enough to give me a facial for all my hard work. Took on one more in the alley across the street. Had a good time but suspect I just got lucky.

Thursday's after work are a good time to stop by here. I have had more than a few good blowjobs and the quality is fairly decent. Sometimes it gets a bit too crowded, and it's often the same ones, but it can be great!

Very small but at least in a pretty good part of town. The proprietor is not the friendliest. When I asked for tokens he said (more sternly than necessary), 'Remember, only one person per booth.' I bought $5 worth and after going into three different booths and discovering the same three movies playing on the three available channels (one all-male), I just fed my $5 in to get it over with. Didn't see anyone else in there but with no doors, no place to sit, cams in the hallway, and signs all around stating 'only one in a booth' and 'no standing in the hallway', I doubt I'll ever be back.

This place is great! I have been here frequently of late and have always seen a hot looking college jock or very hot and built middled-aged guys. The back booth seems to be the best.

This place was just remodeled. There are now two sets of booths with openings that face each other. Tonight I got it on with two really well hung black guys.

After recent remodeling there are now booths that face each other making it good to watch the next guy. There are cameras now but only in the hallway. Lunchtimes can be great!

The best days to visit are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. There is a straight guy working on these days, but he is gay friendly. If you're discreet, you can do a little bit inside this place. The back booth is best. Sometimes the lunch crowd is good.

Heads Up!
Employees are really nice, but don't let folks get carried away. Police raid it periodically and work the street and parking deck outside.

This is a nice place to go and catch a glimpse of other guys, but beware the clerk with long hair who sometimes works there. He goes about peeking into booths and rubbing his crotch and will interfere with other guys' connections.

I hit the bookstore after work in a pair of running shorts and t-shirt. I stepped into one of the booths and a younger guy entered and grabbed my cock before I knew what was happening! At first I was nervous, but then realized that everyone there was looking for the same thing. This guy stripped me naked and sucked every drop of cum out of me while two guys watched. The clerk never bothered us. Very hot!

This is a cool place to go and watch videos. There's a decent mix of gay videos as well. There is a variety of business types and blue-collar depending on time of day. There are no doors on the booths, but they are angled where you can see another playing with himself.

This is an interesting store with a few cruisers, but this place was so old, nasty, and run down I had to leave. The booths were not even big enough for one person.

I stumbled upon this sleazy little gem while biking innocently around Carytown. Don't be fooled by the humble exterior: it's open, and there's a whole wall full of gay porn mags, as well as a rack full of gay vids. For two bucks, one of the rednecks behind the counter will give you tokens for the video booths in the back. This is Richmond's only public sex establishment, so guys my age (21) do visit occasionally. It looks to be a decent place for oral sex in the booths -- just don't make any noise, and be alert!

This is a very nice place to visit. The booths have
no doors but one can find action from time to time.
Cruising mostly takes place outside as patrons will
drive around until their hearts and other parts are
content. There is a minimum of tokens to buy and
the rules are only one person per booth. It's best on
weekends.
