Glory hole (also spelled gloryhole and glory-hole) is a hole in a wall, or other partition, often between public lavatory cubicles or porn video arcade booths and lounges, for people to engage in sexual activity or observe the person in the next cubicle while one or both parties masturbate. Glory holes are especially associated with gay male culture, and anal or oral sex, but may also be used by bisexual or heterosexual men, or by men who do not identify as gay, bisexual, or heterosexual. The partition maintains anonymity. Some gay websites offer directories of glory holes. Glory holes are sometimes the topic of erotic literature, and porn films have been devoted to the uses of glory holes.
