Gapers Block

Gapers' Block is many things: a substantial chronicler of Chicago events, news and thought; winner of Best Local Site from New City and Chicago magazine; and the #10 result for the search term "glory hole." Which would you be most proud of?

It's time for another look at this extremely anonymous art form the glory hole blow job. It's something that I, as a woman with no "stick-in-a-hole-able" genitalia, don't truly understand, but I can't help but be fascinated by the planning, construction of, and use of a glory hole.

Glory holes are alive and well in Chicago. Let's all give a sigh of relief, and shed a tear of happiness, for all is well with the world.

(And there is no sign of the blindfolded Brazilian cocksucker.)

Author's Note: This article is currenly the ninth result in a search for "glory hole."

Completely discreet, private and anonymous blow job through Glory Hole, I buzz you in, door to apt. will be open, you walk in, Glory Hole will be in front of you. Pull out cock, insert, cum and leave. No names, no BS. We won't even see each other. Reciprocation appreciated (9"cut here), not required.

Send email with stats or pic of cock if you have one.

This ad is just one of many glory hole ads this poster has posted within the past few months. Each ad includes a photo of a plywood door with a round hole cut just below the middle of the door. The plywood is shitty, full of knots. And the hole? It's not sealed or lined with some sort of washable liner. It is an unsanitary hole!

"An Unsanitary Hole" is the title of my upcoming glory hole coffee table book, due out this Fall, by Knopf.

Glory Hole Blowjobs for Str8, bi and married men - m4m - 27

I am 27 bi guy handsome clean cut professional here. Prefer 19 to 40 in shape guys. Pics are welcome. reply with stats and lets do it. disease free and hiv neg looking for same.

I wonder if the O'Hare Hilton has a special glory hole suite that visiting businessmen can rent out. It shows up as "queen room" on the receipt, as not to rouse suspicion on the expense report.

Glory Hole Ass Fuck
Walk in, drop trou, stick it through and fuck my ass, dump, and leave

Brevity is, indeed, the soul of wit. The only thing that could make this ad better is to substitute the word "it" with "peter," because it's tragically underused.

DONT get your cock chopped off at a glory hole
I heard about a guy putting his cock in a gloryhole and the other guy had a razor blade......long story short it looked like open faced hot dog bun when that freak mutilated his penis....BE CAREFUL

Alas, a new glory hole villain has "reared his ugly head."

There are many things to warn young men against, glory hole-wise. But I fail to see the odds that someone can get multiple cuts in before the sticker wakes up and goes "Man, I better remove my peter from this here glory hole!"

But the imagery used in this ad paints quite a picture.

UIC Stevenson Hall Tuesday - Glory Hole Fun - 22
Summer school starts for UIC tomorrow (Tuesday) and that means Stevenson Hall will be open. This Spring was hot in the bathroom. I sucked over 10 cocks. Lets make this bathroom hoppin again this summer. I usually found it busy from 2pm until 6 ish. I hope the bathroom can be as busy as spring!!

Is this how guys make up for the lack of tampon dispensers in their bathrooms? Because I think we're even now.
