A Few Minutes With Dr. Emilio - NCAA Bracket Buster Edition

When we last left The Good Doctor, he was donning his scuba gear for the last time...

Hello ladies and gentlemen, and all the ships at sea...The Good Doctor is here again with this week's "A Few Minutes With Dr. Emilio".  You know the drill: A lead story, a few adult theater related nuggets from across the USA, an opinion or two, and a photo of Dr. Emilio in a public place.

Let's get started, shall we?

The Lead Story
Renovations at The Paris Theater in Portland to the front section of the auditorium were made public yesterday via Brent at Brent's Theater Tails. A front bedroom-like area will be dubbed "The Arena", which will allow for viewing and gen pop participating (if invited) away from the existing "Couples Oasis".  This is a good thing, since during weekends primarily, the singles guys in the audience can surround the couples area and make some of the attending couples uncomfortable.  I have seen this first hand, and totally agree that it is an issue at The Paris. 

Three things will help this situation (in my opinion):
  1. "The Arena" will help siphon away some of the guys from "The Oasis", thus creating a less intimidating presence by the single guys towards couples just getting warmed up to the environment.
  2. The Paris has a published set of rules for behavior inside the theater.  No standing on the stairs and no cell phones are the two big ones.  The issue is enforcement by the staff @ The Paris.  If the rules are enforced, everyone wins.  Offenders can be escorted out of the theater.  The Paris does a very good job in most areas, but rule enforcement needs to be stepped up.
  3. A dedicated "Couples Only" entrance to the theater which is enforced.
Renovations at The Paris should be completed in the next month, and The Journal will keep an eye on developments in Portland.

The Nuggets
  • Laney from Texas had a very good long weekend at CTs in Gary IN this past week.  She was kind enough to provide The Good Doctor with photos from Friday, Saturday, and Monday's gang bang. Check out the photos HERE and HERE. Hopefully when she makes her next adult theater trip, she will provide your handsome editor with more pics from that event.  The response was great!
  • Las Vegas continues to have the most disappointing adult theater scene despite some of the best adult theater facilities in the country.  A report I received directly this past week showed no straight action whatsoever at Babes, Fantasyworld, or anyplace else for that matter in Vegas. If you have a report to the contrary, please contact me directly (link on the upper right hand side of The Journal).
  • A strong daytime and weeknight streak of couples attending 15th Avenue Adult Books and Theater in Melrose Park continued this week.  Strong specials help drive traffic there during these times.  The "Couples and Single Ladies Free" Wednesdays have been a hit at this terrific facility in the burbs of Chicago. Highly recommended.
  • Remember to follow me on Twitter... You will get real time adult theater updates from 15th Avenue in Melrose Park, CTs in Gary, and any of the three theaters in the St. Louis area (via my good friend and colleague Major Voyeur).  On Saturday and Sunday mornings, you will get a "Morning QB" Tweet about the previous night's scene. Follow me at Twitter HERE, or at @LizardoJournal on Twitter.  Thanks.
  • The Good Doctor heard from several of the excellent field reporters we have here at the Journal this past week.  We can look forward to reports from OldBeatNik, JaxBchBum, Dr. Luv, and Donny Digital coming down the pike.
  • Coming soon to The Journal of Adult Theaters: A Fantasyland Flash Report by WM, a new Blast From the Past, and lastly a "House Call by Dr. Emilio". It's been awhile since I have filed one, but that comes to an end early this coming week.  Plus many reports as they hit the in box here in The Valley near the small women's liberal arts college.
Reports Needed!
The Good Doctor needs your reports from your local adult theaters or ABSs.  They can be a recent visit, a report from the past, or a scouting report on an adult theater you have visited.  Just e-mail me at

Lastly, I was looking at my NCAA men's basketball bracket and thinking that it takes a supreme effort and many hour's of study to be in the 18th percentile.  That's me... Dr. Roundball.

Have a great week everyone.
