Sad news…the adult arcade on NW 23rd St. has been shut down

I’m not sure how we missed this one. The guy pictured above is JD Sackett. He was busted last week for running an illegal adult motion picture arcade. From KFOR:

Oklahoma City man is behind bars after running an illegal adult arcade. Neighbors say men would come and go from the home at 4011 NW 23rd Street, some staying all day…

OKC Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow says, “When our undercover officer went in there, they were actually able to purchase, for $10, an unlimited amount of time watching pornographic movies.”

Officers arrested the owner, 75-year-old JD Sackett.

Sgt. Wardlow says, “The actual charge in this case, which is running an illegal adult motion picture arcade, is not something that we typically see a lot of reports of. It’s something that’s fairly unusual.”…

The lack of signs made the neighbors suspicious.

(Tana) LeMisio says, “My husband asked him what kind of business it was and he told him it was an exercise business.”

But when her husband asked if he could work out there, he was told it was members only…

In case you’ve ever wondered what an illegal adult motion picture arcade looks like, here’s a photo of the business from Google Street:

Uhm, why exactly are they calling this place an arcade? It looks like it was built next to a power plant and industrial zone in Sim City. The arcades I went to as a kid had flashing lights, loud sounds and were inside a mall. I don’t recall ever seeing boarded up windows at Aladdin’s Castle. I also never cashed in a bunch of ski ball tickets for a Hustler video. The arcade is where kids went to play Galaga, Dragon’s Lair and NBA Jam, although porn kiosks would have been cool.

Also, if somebody wanted to come over to my house and watch porn all day, I’d charge them way more than $10 for an all day pass! Actually, that leads to an interesting question. How much would you charge someone if they wanted to watch porn in your house? I’m thinking at least $2,000…for a dude. I’d let girls do it for free. Because I’m kind and sensitive and caring.

  1. I heard about this so called “Arcade” a while back and went there to play me some Ms. PacMan. I immediately left when I saw what I was told to use for a “joystick.” Why does our state suck so bad……

  2. I bet a person could get some furniture (sofas, chairs, etc.) real cheap when they auction off the contents of the arcade.

  3. (Tana) LeMisio says, “My husband asked him what kind of business it was and he told him it was an exercise business.”

    I guess it is in some sense of the word

    • It’s also been referred to as a “tension relief center” dating back to the Seventies. Apparently it’s well-known in the gay community as a place for dudes to hook up.

      • This is correct. Also from what I heard the “arcades” are just a few TV’s that play hardcore gay porn.

  4. Just my luck. I have a whole mason jar full of “brown chicken brown cow” tokens on top of my dresser.

  5. Exercise business. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I love that. “We are just a bunch of sweaty dudes, working out, and watching buns of steel.”
