Time Out says

Maybe you know Circus of Books from its lauded Netflix documentary of the same name. Or maybe you know it as your former go-to spot for gay porn and sex toys. Regardless, this WeHo bookstore was simply an erotica institution and a well-known cruising spot until its closure in 2019 (it was able to weather the Reagan years, but not the proliferation of free internet porn). Since then, it’s been reborn and given a fresh coat of paint by drag-diva Chi Chi Larue. It’s a comparatively higher-end space now that boasts art books and a gallery, but don’t worry, there are still plenty of poppers and naughty bits to be found here.
