Atlanta’s Preeminent Adult Bookstore with Gay Gloryhole Action Galore… Blowjobs, Raw Fucking, Darkroom Hook-Ups
Tokyo Valentino (formerly Inserection) on Cheshire Bridge
1739 Cheshire Bridge Road NE
Atlanta, GA 30324
Pricing varies. It’s $12 to $20 depending on the day and time you visit and the amount of time you want to stay.
August 2015: Updates to this entry are highlighted in red.
Do not take your wallet in: If you’re lucky, your pants will be around your ankles or completely off. Certainly, you can leave your wallet in a locker if you bring a lock with you and trust that sort of thing. I don’t. I bring cash with me and stash all my important documents where they belong. I prefer parking somewhere else where there’s a lot of traffic. Parking in the lot of Inserection frightens some people because someone might know you’re inside getting or giving a blowjob.
Do not purchase poppers here unless you’re desperate: Despite the labels, I do not believe that the poppers are legitimately from the place they claim to be. As someone who enjoys his poppers and knows which ones he likes and does not like, the ones I have purchased here have always been overpriced, never fresh and never the quality of those bought from other sources
Don’t wear a belt if you’re planning on getting a blowjob or fucking at a gloryhole: If you move your hips at all while against the walls here, the “clang” of your belt buckle will be loud and distracting.
You may be solicited for money: If someone just too hot to be true comes up, then it’s probably too hot to be true. I’ve been asked for a $20. The young African-American was good-looking enough and had a big cock, but fucking him was out of the question and, well, his ass wasn’t that good. He was selling his 10-inch cock, nothing else.
This is a destination in Atlanta for Gay sex. While I have seen women here, it is extraordinarily rare. If you are not interested in having sex with men, consider going to one of the other Inserection locations in Atlanta.
If you are not familiar with gloryhole etiquette , or even know what a gloryhole is, you will want to read up on the linked resources available from this blog.
While this is an adult bookstore, it does include some aspects of a bathhouse on the middle and upper levels (when opened) as explained (accessible only through the ground-level area).
Toyko Valentino has long been known as Inserection (this is spelled correctly; it is not spelled “insurrection”) in Atlanta. The Atlanta area was dotted with a few locations but the best one for anonymous gay sex (and the only one I’ll write about) is now known as Tokyo Valentino. It’s gotten a much deserved face-lift.
The upper most level has an adult bookstore upstairs. The playspace entrance is in the basement or ground floor of adult store upstairs. You drive down the hill to behind the building and enter in the back.
Parking is a challenge if the lot is full since the taco restaurant next door has been torn down and is being turned into condos or apartments (convenient for someone who loves getting fucked… hint, hint).
Pay cash to get in. You cannot use a credit card. There’s an ATM in the actual retail store upstairs (and there’s a fire escape stairs to the backdoor by the entrance to the playspace).
When you pay the single fee, you will receive a card with a barcode on it that will allow you through a turnstile (which hasn’t worked for a while now) you will be asked for your initials. Don’t freak out. A while back, a patron would have to show ID but no information was ever recorded. Now they don’t ask unless you exit and try to return. Then the initials have to match your ID.
Tip the guy up front a little.
Once inside, you do not need to feed money into videos in the booths. Additionally you can linger and loiter all you want.
At the front retail area, you can purchase poppers, lube, condoms, towels and water.
You can see a map of the space. This is not to scale.
About 14 paired up gloryhole booths (in purple) with short benches and videos (which are normally ignored) are available. Gloryholes are generally shaped like super-sized twinkies so different heights can be accommodated.
But the MDF wood is about an an inch thick so good fucking can be tough unless the bottom really backs his ass up. The two holes closest to the entrance/exit are the smallest.
Six or so booths (in tan) aren’t paired up for more “private” action without being watched but the booths are no larger.
All of the booths are numbered but the numbers may not make sense. Check above the center of the doors. But you can let someone you’re meeting there to choose a particular booth. Again, you want to learn proper gloryhole etiquette to attract or reject someone.
You will not be harassed but occasionally a cleaning guy will go through and might seem a little irritated.
Generally the space is dark and painted black with throbbing XM music played with dance lights. The lounge (in pink) larger room with a few nice sofas that generally no one sits in but sometimes you’ll notice someone asleep inside.
Just off of the lounge is a small “darkroom” (in dark blue) with large sofas.
Darkroom action has really lucked out for me over my last several visits. Sure, you can’t see really well. You can let your eyes adjust a bit and get a “feel” of things. But the bottoms hang out here (or on the middle level, as explained below) and I’ve found some men of all ages and body types (a muscle boy got fucked raw here during a recent visit and I was fingering the cock entering his hole when he blew a huge load all over my arm).
There can be a problem with trolls in this room. Push them off. There’s also a bit of an issue with assholes turning on their phones to see what’s going on.
I’m going to write a piece on Darkroom Etiquette to help with these fuckers.
Otherwise, I’ve found good ass… even great here.
Bathroom with two locking doors on this floor. Locker room and showers that no one ever seems to use. Drink and snack machines that costs cash; the drink machine finally includes Diet Coke. To get water, it’s $1 from the man up front. Ms. Pac Man and other video games (strangely enough).
Upstairs area accessed via stairs down a hallway. There you will find four unreserved room.
Coming up the stairs to the right will be a very large room (#4) with a series of smaller, twin beds in a U-shape. This room is always open with no door. It is darkroom #2.
When there’s a lot of men, I actually find this is the better of the two darkrooms.
Don’t ask me why, but for some reason, couples seem to come into this room with one as the bottom and the other as the encouraging buddy. I’ve bred more nice bottoms here while their boyfriend or companion or whatever encouraged the breeding.
From room #4, going around the room counter-clockwise, you’ll find two medium-sized rooms with queen-sized beds each and then a small room with a full-size bed. All rooms have doors that lock. Continuing on, there’s a bathroom (a nice private one) and a dark hallway. Sofas line the room. All of the other hook-up rooms are locked and one must obtain a key from the guy at the counter… that’s another reason why you might want to have tipped him.
I have found the doors open on occasion and been invited in to breed someone, but it’s rare.
The reason for the locks? Well, there’s been too many drug addicts using the space to sleep one off.
The Upper Level
On Friday and Saturday nights, you might stumble upon a “secret” dance floor — you can’t miss it. The entrance is in between Hook-Up Rooms #4 and #3. With florescent paint on the walls highlighted by black lights, you might wander into it and then notice a set of stairs on the wall opposite your entrance. Go up.
This absolutely gorgeous space includes a few more hook-up rooms, a massage room (with massage table included), a bondage room (with iron cross) a locker room (real lockers but fantasy play encouraged) and a mirrored giant room that looks like a night club. There’s also the absolute best bathrooms and showers up here.
Unfortunately, I’ve not seen or experienced any play here. But the owners of Tokyo Valentino have the idea right. This could be a remarkable play space with a lot of options. If you’ve played here, let me know.
Tokyo Valentino’s best times are the lunch hour and just after work with Monday and Thursday being the best possible days . Generally, Wednesday is the worst day to go. Saturday night can be overwhelming and, it seems, a lot of folks are too picky for their own good, expecting the absolute best of the best.
It also seems that during the late-night primetime, the best bets are hitting up Eros or Manifest , which are both only open during certain evenings but busiest on weekends. It’s only $5 more to hit them, so you’re getting the cheapest of the sex-hunters at Inserection.
However, go on a full moon, whichever night that is.
That being said, I recommend a few things to check on what’s happening:
If there are not any ads there, I recommend posting one. This has worked for me more than once, even on Wednesdays. I also use Grindr and Scruff, but those do not tend to work as well.
If you post an ad, a lot of people will suggest you stop by their place instead. If you’re from out of town, when people say they live “close by,” that can be bullshit. Believe me, what seems like a couple of miles, winding through downtown Atlanta and trying to find parking can be not worth it. And I’ve left for some abortions when I should have stayed.
The crowd is a good mix of African-American, Latino, Caucasians and occasionally some Asians. Generally, bears, twinks, normals, married men and business men can be found. Age range is mid-20s to 70s (yes, I said 70s).
I have had a couple of trolls who don’t get the point I’m not interested. However, I’ve had worse problems at other sex clubs. I recommend if you’ve got a problem person, go into one of the booths without a gloryhole and take a break for a while. I’ve even gone “shopping” upstairs for a while.
Bareback is common but not assumed. Plenty of condoms come out (and I’ve taken then off, as I’ve written; sometimes, there’s no protest).
Every part of Inserection — gloryholes, darkrooms, hook-up rooms and booths without gloryholes — require a different technique to get laid.
The upper hand is truly with the bottom who gets to choose. As I note below, the top-heavy nature of the crowd has had an impact. As does the fact some bottoms are bossy and fucking picky.
If you’re a bottom, pick a booth with a gloryhole and wait. You’ll stay busy if you’re not picky.
If you’re a bottom and really slutty, go upstairs to a hook-up room, strip down and show your ass.
Ultimately, with patience, you can get lucky. I’ve left only a couple of times without getting laid and those times I went to get it nearby thanks to ads.
A lot of improvements have been made since the summer. The lighting overall has been lowered and the beds upstairs have been repaired or replaced. The meth addicts are not coming as much, or so it seems when I visit.
That being said, the increase in cost does mean less folks are coming. Some days it’s not very active.
However, the improvements warrant boosting the rating back to four out of five stars.
You can count on men to be destructive and that’s what’s been happening here. It’s unfortunate since Inserection provided one of the lesser expensive place to fuck. However, it’s not what the clientele has done but what been happening with the upstairs that’s forcing me to change my rating. I’m dropping it from 3½ to 2½ stars and it might go lower. Additionally, I’m already going to start hunting somewhere else to fuck.
Over the last month, the upstairs has gotten unbearably warm. Standing upstairs to cruise is tough. When I finally get the hook-up, spending most of my time sweating even before we get our clothes off. And then, we’re both soaked just making out before my cock slides inside them. I haven’t (and probably) won’t write about these, but I’ve fucked three men here of late and couldn’t cum simply because my body had released so much sweat, it protested at releasing any more liquid from my body. And quite frankly, the bottoms didn’t bitch.
As the summer heat pours it on here in the humid South, Inserection will become a place to avoid.
Additionally, the leatherette covering on the cushions on the platforms have been ripped, torn and just destroyed. Who knows why but some homeless people as well as meth addicts use the $11 or $15 admission as a great place to crash and come down.
I’ve got a solution. There’s a posted 30-minute limit (which really should be 20 minutes). Timed locks. If they go to sleep, the locks will expire and someone can kick the single folks out (especially the old man who sleeps with his ass exposed thinking that’s just an open invitation). If people are truly fucking inside, one can renew the timer.
And please fix the doors.
Vibe in 2011
Since adding the upstairs area, the vibe has changed significantly. As of Spring 2011, the crowd has turned distinctly top-heavy. Good news for bottoms, bad news for me. I hear of bottoms now leaving there with multiple loads in their ass. Well, I hear of slutty bottoms leaving there like that. What’s happening is bottoms are getting choosy. So what happens is even the ugly one are thinking they can get the hot, hot, hot tops and, in some cases, they can.
One day in March 2011 (I kid you not) a very, very bad man dressed in woman’s clothes (with a wig and makeup) through the place. I guess I’ll call her a crossdresser, but she didn’t give it much effort. It looked like she was the only bottom in the entire place. I saw that thing get more cock than I could imagine. She’d pull her pantyhose and panties down for anyone and take a seat. She got a lot. Not me.
With the Inserection turning so top-heavy and the bottoms getting picky, it’s difficult to get any good action here. However, it remains one of the better places to visit. I still use it, but attempt to make sure others are visiting at the same time via Craigslist ads or Quick Connect Ads on BBRT.
Wednesdays are never good. Mondays, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday are best.
