Doc here, a man who some say once bounced on a pogo stick for 14 hours straight before being spooked by a large bug.
At last month's Beach Blanket Bango Party at 15th Ave. in Chicago, I met for the first time regular contributor Joe the Cabdriver. Joe had the look of a starving man at a buffet, with so much going on around him, he had his choice of dishes to savor.
Joe also could not have been any nicer a guy. We had a great conversation about the Michigan adult theater scene before I had to prepare to MC the sexy outfit contest at the event.
With that being said, let's welcome back to The Journal Joe the Cabdriver!
It's Joe The Cabdriver with a long over due update from Grand Rapids, Michigan and West Michigan scene in general.
Goddamn! I've been on a porn theater tear as of a late, having extra money and extra time to take up one of my favorite hobbies once again. I've definately been making up for lost time.
Nothing new to report from Grand Rapids itself. The Cini-Mini on Plainfield and Adult XXX Superstore on Division are still devoid of couples, still pathetic, at least if you're looking for This Thing Of Ours. The Cini-Mini is actually a nice place, remodeled, and doesn't smell like pee anymore. Most shenanigans happen in the bathroom, which has porn playing in the stalls. The Division XXX has a small store, no booths, a lounge, and a back area for shenanigans. I did happen to see a really old man bring a really methed-out woman in there. Other than that, no action. Sad sad sad.
I have been making ventures to the Odyssey in Muskegon. Attached to a small all nude strip club with very friendly dancers, the theater is a clean, nice facility; with a straight and gay theater, booths with gloryholes, a lounge with many couches, and two TV's playing straight porn above a stage (I'm assuming the room is used as a secondary strip club of sorts). It also features a small private room for couples; with TV, couch, and glass window with curtain. I did not see any couple's action in the theater the few times I visited, though it does cater to and attract them. Hopefully my luck will change this weekend.
Club Tabu is another great spot where unfortunately I have seen little action. This place is a darkly lit, sizeable, fully furnished and fully equipped sex club attached to Pleasures Unlimited Bookstore in Lansing. It caters mainly to gays, but does attract couples and single women. The facility features a front lounge showing straight porn and featuring an S&M rack, a sex swing, a fuck table, gay porn everywhere, many gloryholes and secret places and crevices tucked away. There are also two private rooms, equipped with sex swing, table and S&M gear. One of the rooms has a peep window with a curtain, where I caught some brief action.
A plump young lady with nice big tits and her skinny boyfriend played on the table, as he worked her over with a vibrator. We were gathered around the window, quietly and respectfully enjoying the show, when suddenly she closed the curtain, just as things were getting good. Damn. That's the only couple's action I've witnessed there. So far, so good.
Battle Creek, MI
I've had much better luck at Romantix in Battle Creek, a hotbed of couples action. I've seen action both times I've gone. First time was in the middle of week, and the place was dead. Two dudes were jacking off in the straight theater. A couple then comes in.
The lady was fucking gorgeous. Late 20's, long brown hair, long legs, nice tits, nice ass, very pretty. They start to fool around in the chairs, which were somewhat awkward for the lady. One of the guys got nervous and ran out. The other dude stared at the screen and ignored the couple, to my utter amazement. Soon the couple went to the couch where the vacant dude was jacking off. They fucked and sucked each other right next to him, in various positions, while he pretends they are not even there, except for when she rested her head on his arm, which seemed to annoy him a bit.
I was taking in this wonderful show, which I was unfortunately not invited to participate in. When it was over, we talked. They were from South Bend, and said they liked the Romantics there better, which makes me want to take a field trip there in the near future.
The next visit featured a crowded theater, a friendly couple in their late forties (the lady having a delectable ass), and lots of blowjobs. Fun times.
I plan on hitting as many other places as I possibly can in the near future. My visit to 15th Ave for Beach Blanket Bango was fantastic, and easily the most sex I've ever seen under one roof. Looking forward to more of that. I'm going to try and hit up the Westwood in Toledo before summer is over.
Well, that's it for the Michigan scene, your humble reporter signing out. Remember to always tip your cab or Uber driver, cash, credit or blowjobs accepted.

Doc here again...Many thanks to Joe the Cabdriver for his up to date Michigan report. The Good Doctor also has
monkey business in Michigan, and I will take Joe's recommendations on places to hit while there.
Keep up the great work, sir!
