Glory Holes, for the innocent and ignorant, are the popular name for the penis-sized holes between booths in adult bookstores -- and they are rarely used for mere peeping. For decades the Glory Hole has been the staple of the underground Gay community, and even in our enlightened times there are still plenty of men who haunt these places, looking for anonymous relief.
The action is usually oral, but the key point to the fantasy element is the anonymity of the experience. Not being able to see the mouth on the other side of the wall allows the imagination to run wild. That's why plenty of straight men try these booths out, because, gosh, you can't really know if the mouth on the other side belongs to a man or a woman . . . can you?
(Now, before you ladies freak out and think every trip your dude makes to the video store will lead to illicit, anonymous gay sex, let me assure you that plenty of guys never venture back into the back room - they're just there for the boobie flicks. On the other hand, if you purchase all of your porn DVDs online, say at a reputable company with over three decades of experience, you can avoid that possibility. But I digress.)
So why bring up the Glory Hole at all if it's so gay? Let me explain how you can turn the faint allure of anonymous sex into something you can, possibly, use in your bedroom.
You see, like a lot of things in Gay sexual culture, like the Cosmopolitan, hooking up, and and pastels, straight women can't resist stealing it. Once certain women found out about the secret Gay stash of endless anonymous penises in the back room of the bookstore, well, some of them went a little crazy. By the 1990s, you were starting to see couples and even single women sneak into the 24 hour XXX stores to get a midnight snack.
Enough of them, at least, so that my Gay friends grumble that they can't hook up on a Saturday night anymore because the straight dudes congregate around the known pussy -- and if a woman (or good-looking transvestite) walks into a booth, you can bet the line will be as long as she wants it to be. Instead they meet men who want to be with men on Craigslist and invite them to private glory holes in hotels or at their homes like respectable gentlemen.
It's easy to see why -- a girl, a wall, a hole, a penis, cheap movie magic. Anonymous sex becomes adult entertainment. And guys loved the fantasy element of glory holes almost as much as MILFs and cheerleaders. Hot girl on the other side of the wall? Not knowin' who she's blowin'? How could that not be hot?
The thing is, your hubby might actually be turned on by the fantasy of anonymity, but that's one of those things he probably doesn't even know how to ask for, even if he knows he wants it. But enough dudes do that I feel comfortable sharing this tip.
The Set Up
First, you're going to want to prepare an utterly private place where you know you won't be interrupted. What you want is a closet, a spare room, even just a doorway if possible, across which you can stretch some sort of visual barrier like a blanket or a big piece of cardboard. If you really want to put some effort into it, and have the space, go to your local hardware store and purchase an 8'x4' sheet of easy-to-cut foam insulation board -- and advanced couples might want to make the whole thing out of wood.
The goal, of course, is to build your own glory hole. The actual hole is likely less important than the feeling of anonymity. Once he puts his dick through the hole or slit, his imagination should be utterly reliant on what he feels, not what he sees. Removing the visual component is the exciting thing, and this is a lot more elaborate than a simple blindfold. It shows you put some effort into it.
Once you have a decent glory hole set-up prepared, stow it away until one night when you want to treat your husband to something a little . . . special.
After preparing him thoroughly (say, ten solid minutes of kissing to get him worked up good and hard) then grab his hand and pull him to his feet. Hug him. Grab Mr. Happy and give him a shake or two. Put your mouth up to his ear. Whisper . . .
". . . do you trust me?"
If he says no, well, you have bigger issues. But he'll probably say yes. Let's assume he does.
"Then I want you to wait here for exactly three minutes. Then I want you to come into the living room/dining room/observatory/woodshed. You'll know what to do then. I've prepared something a little different tonight." Give him a final peck, a sexy smile, and wiggle your ass out of the room.
Slink away to your pre-prepared "Glory Hole Booth". Make certain during your prep that you've considered all of the logistics of the situation, first. That is, have a bottle of water, some lip balm, and any other fun stuff you might need at hand, and do grab a pillow or ottoman -- you might be there a while.
Or, if you do it right . . . maybe not.
In any case, when he finally enters the room, he should see a clear indicator of what he should do, such a cardboard sign that says "INSERT PENIS HERE" or "HUSBANDS ONLY (FORM A LINE)" or "RING BELL AND INSERT COCK FOR SERVICE" or "BLOWJOB VENDING MACHINE" or any other sexy, witty thing you can imagine.
If you have followed my instructions to the letter, and your husband is straight and has even the remotest attraction for you, you're gonna see Mr. Happy poking through the hole in record time.
And this is where it gets fun for you: because he really doesn't know exactly what you have planned. He doesn't know what to expect, or just how far you've decided to go. You have successfully captured the mystique and allure of the Glory Hole, and his brain is buzzing at a thousand miles a second.
Some women might think of this move as inherently objectifying. You're right. That's the point. You have entertained your husband's sexual brain as well as his dick. It wasn't about you, personally, it was about you, plural. You both get to indulge a fantasy at the same time. Remember that.
If you want to kick it up a few notches, however . . .
This is your opportunity, too -- you can experiment with your guy's penis in all sorts of silly ways. If you've usually been too into him to really get into his dick, the disembodied-and-could-actually-be-Daniel-Craig-if-the-light-is-low-enough penis of your husband. Just listen to what he says and the sounds he makes. This is your mutual opportunity to experiment. Revel in it.
Besides the Basic Blowjob, which he's fairly familiar with by this point if you've done your wifely duties appropriately, consider a few of these intriguing variations on the Basic Level:
The Knob Job
Focus exclusively on the head and the first three inches (if he has at least three inches -- and I hope he does, for your sake), and leave everything else alone for he first fifteen minutes. Suck hard, suck softly, nibble, but don't go any further down the base until he's begging for it.
The Oily Handy
If you have a cold sore, sinus issues, or any other problems that keep you from being able to deliver a good blow job, a perfectly acceptable substitution is a super-slippery hand job to completion. Use a good thick commercial lube, hand lotion, massage oil, or other slippery stuff. And if you want to get really crazy, consider olive oil or room-temperature butter. But if you want the best all-time long-performing lube combo, according to interviews with hundreds of dedicated masturbators, is Petroleum Jelly (not KY) and a cup of water. That seems to have the best coefficient of friction, but clean-up is hell since it's not water soluable. Still, you should be able to find something slick to slip on his dick.
For Intermediate Level:
Maybe it's time for hubby to meet your toy collection? Use your faves on the head, base and shaft -- but avoid the testicles. The Fellas are a little sensitive.
Some dudes really get off on rubber, and slipping on a pair of gloves (the yellow housework kind or the medical kind) and lubing up your mitts to give your mouth an assist as he's poking through the hole is guaranteed to give him some very unique sensations while he's climbing to paradise. If rubber isn't his thing, consider trying silk or satin gloves, too. Or maybe a scarf.
If you start out with the Basic Blowjob, you might consider wearing silk or satin panties while you blow him . . . and then half way through, slip them off and start using them to stroke his shaft and head. Some dudes can really get off on this, and if their silky enough, that's hard to beat. Which I suppose is the point.
Now, for ADVANCED Home Glory Hole users, consider some potential suggestions from Uncle Ian's Super-Secret Book Of Mind Blowing Fellatio Tips:
FIRE AND ICE
Warm cocoa and ice water. Take a sip of one. Give him thirty seconds. Take a swallow of the other. Give him thirty seconds. Repeat until he promises to have your babies if you finish him off. NOTE: back off a bit if he gets over-stimulated. And don't use water any warmer than you'd probably bathe a baby in -- it doesn't take much heat to make your mouth feel REALLY hot.
Buy a scrap of fake fur, or use a similarly fuzzy or furry object to tickle his johnson until he's moaning. Change up with a slightly different texture for a few minutes, then go back. Remove loose hair from mouth afterwards (hey, I never said there wasn't any risk).
CAST OF THOUSANDS
This is the perfect time to try to fool him into thinking there is someone other than you behind the glory hole. Crank up some music to cover any noise, and after you start him off more-or-less as normal, step away for a moment, then return and attack his schlong with an entirely different style. If you're usually soft and mushy, go hard and fast. If you're usually heavy on the long strokes, flicker the head instead.
OR, you can actually get someone to help out, if you're into that sort of thing or you accidentally wrecked his car. But even if you're alone, you should be able to create the illusion of a couple of girls (?) taking turns by simply putting your hair up and changing your style and grip.
If you really want to freak him out, try wearing a fake mustache and/or beard. Like I said, advanced users.
Where in your marriage would you use this? Not when things are rocky -- if you and the Missus are having problems, then inserting your penis into some unknown variable isn't necessarily the wisest thing, no matter how sweetly she asks.
But if you are just experiencing the desire for novelty, or you want to impress him with a little experimentation but you don't want to break out the ball-gags and paddles just yet, then the Glory Hole Experience is a great way to inject some fun fantasy into your sex life for the price of a piece of cardboard and a little ingenuity.
If you're concerned about what he's thinking while he's thrusting away through the hole, don't be. You are over-thinking it and you probably don't really want to know, anyway. But that's the point: this is an indulgence in sexual fantasy play. It's not a precursor to ten-guy blow bangs in some funky-smelling dive.
Just relax and enjoy the happy prospect of a cock without a man in sight -- and then tell me you haven't dreamed about what you would do if you had that chance.
Give it a shot, try it out, let me know how it worked out for you. Professional interest. Really.
