video/book stores and gloryholes

Hi all,

I've lucky enough to travel extensively around Europe and the US, mostly on business, and confess I can't resist an opportunity to visit the local adult store wherever I happen to end up. I even managed a couple of visits to one in Hawaii whilst there on holiday with the wife!

I remember my first time about 20 years ago in Germany. The adult store was a small, discreet place about 5 or 6 shops away from the hotel I was staying in. I'd only gone in for a look around when at the back of the store I found the video preview section. I hadn't seen anything like this before so was somewhat intrigued. I wandered up the small, poorly lit staircase in the corner and found my very own slice of heaven! I'm pretty sure every one of the dozed or so cubicles had a glory hole and by the sounds coming from all around me, they were definitely being used. What a great place.

Such a shame we don't have places like these in the UK?

There aren't many adult cinemas, let alone video cabins playing porn in the UK. Only about 6 cities have porn cinemas full stop.

Gloryholes are almost as rare as unicorns here too. People want to use them, but never make them.

I wonder if there is some legal or planning reason why these viewing booths haven't made it to the UK? They would surely make a good revenue stream for any adult shop.

I think there'd be queues around the block should any turn up.

It's all to do with "sex establishment" licensing. Whilst a book/video/toy shop stands a chance of getting a licence, cinemas, video booths etc come under the classification of "sex encounter establishments" which basically stand a snowballs chance in hell in most local authority areas.

Strangely enough, "gay saunas" and the like aren't under the same rules and are relatively easy to establish. Anything for mixed sexes seems to have the presumption that any females attending will be prostitutes and therefore will never be approved.

Guess you've got to set up your own equivalent privately and then invite pre-selected visitors around.

So I'm just back from a week in the big apple on business and by jove, did I have some fun out there!

Every adult store (and there are plenty of them, three within a 10 minute walk of my hotel!) had preview booths with not just gloryholes but some had large windows between them and openings you could almost climb through. Sadly not likely to be back there again this year but brought back many happy memories.

In the United States even smaller towns have a sex shops with gloryholes. I found some in Boston and Washington. There must be hundreds across all the states. But the law here prevents them opening i suppose. Otherwise someone could make a heck of a lot of money out of them. I would like to see one open at a motorway service station. It would have 24 booths , all with holes between each pair. Open it 24 hours a day. Charge £10 entry. Then watch the vans and trucks come in from miles away to use them. In america they have such stores just off tge turnpikes.

America is the weirdest place I have ever been to. They have sex shops with glory holes almost everywhere. You can buy a gun very easily, but on the TV you are not allowed to say the most innocent thing in case someone is offended.

You sometimes see Americans on our TV and they often say "can I say that here"

Yet we can say fuck on TV without restriction apparently after nine PM. It's a strange world we live in

I was out in the midwest for work for a few months, pretty rural place, and there was a sexshop there, just off the interstate, always busy, back rooms, guys and regular couples, coming and going from the booths. Opened my eyes!
