Circular brass-colored metal token from the peep shows "Peepworld" and "XXtasy Video Center."
Gift of Girth Factor
These tokens, from erotic arcades in midtown Manhattan, represent a dying form of entertainment in the Times Square area. Efforts during the 1980s and 1990s to redevelop the area forced the closure or move of erotic businesses to other areas of the city.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
