This business has closed.
This little bookshop carries all of the rare and nasty stuff that their massive neighbor across the street won't touch. The front half of the store is filled with hard-to-find books and comics, while the back half is pure smut. They carry porn of almost every variety, both vintage and new. The vibe inside is surprisingly cozy and non-threatening. There's even a nice little dog walking around. Counter Media is truly a Portland original.
If you're looking for hard-to-find porn of the DVD variety, check out Southeast Portland's Valentine Video.
