I have always been interested in porn stars. I enjoy the fact that they are uninhibited enough to allow their beautiful bodies to be filmed for our fantasies. They become minor celebrities in the gay community, often appearing at fund raisers and parades.

 

I always wondered, what happens after their careers, which are usually short, end? They don't earn enough to retire for the rest of their lives. We've all seen the postings and websites about dead porn stars, porn stars who run afoul of the law, etc.

 

Does a career in porn come back and haunt gay models? Do they become ashamed of their history? Or does a career in porn launch them into other career avenues?

 

I often wondered what happend to some of my favorite porn stars: Kevin Williams, Hal Rockland, Colby Taylor, etc. The 90s sure was a time of beautiful men in gay erotic film!

After fucking with men every which way -- including one scene in which he took a corn cob up his ass -- Jack Wrangler, a porn star from the -70s, married Margaret Whiting, a pop singer from the '40s and '50s. The story of that marriage remains to be told. There have been rumors that Whiting was a lesbian, or a bisexual. Perhaps Wrangler was, too.

 

Casey Donovan, aka Calvin Culver, one of the first porn stars, became an escort, then died of AIDS. He was romantically linked with movie star Tom Tryon, who may also have died of AIDS.

 

After appearing in softcore porn, Sylvester Stallone, went on to a film career. What was he in, again?

 

Many soap stars did porn scenes and were able to keep their work out of sight to get cast in network soaps.

 

 

A friend once observed Culver and Wrangler meet at a gym. "What do legends say when the meet?" one of them asked.

Fascinating. When I saw the name Margaret Whiting, I thought, she’s got to be dead by now. But, apparently not, according to Wrangler’s Wikipedia page. Here’s the reference to their marriage:

 

"In 1976, Wrangler met celebrated pop singer and film actress Margaret Whiting (whose songs include the 1966 single The Wheel of Hurt) when she attended one of his one-man erotic shows in New York. As he later recalled, "I was with my manager when I looked over at Margaret, who was surrounded by five guys at a booth. 'There she was with the hair, the furs and the big gestures. I thought, 'Boy, now that's New York! That's glamour!' I had to meet her." A relationship developed. He was 33; she was 55. When Wrangler confided to Whiting that he was gay, her response was "only around the edges, dear."[2] Wrangler and Whiting have been married since 1994."

 

Another article, apparently an interview for People magazine in 1987: http://www.gaylib.com/text/rept5.htm

I'm not really sure if I would consider Wrangler and Culver legends, but it's my guess that when "legends" run into each other they might simply say, "hi." The two of them asking each other what do legends say to each other seems a bit tongue and cheek.

 

I think the smart porn actors who have a sense of business probably find jobs behind the scenes (eg Michael Lucas) or move on to a more mainstream type of existence (as Wrangler did.) Unfortunately, my hunch is that way too many of them slip through the cracks (no pun intended.) Often they are lead into the porn life because they have the goods physically, but perhaps may not be capable of working in more traditional fields, for any number of reason.

 

There's a documentary DVD on Wrangler that's OK. It's called "Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon." He talks about his marriage and his wife is also featured. In the movie he clearly identifies himself as gay and not bisexual.

 

There's also a DVD about Peter Berlin who was a local fixture in San Francisco in the 70's who made porn. It's fairly interesting. Berlin comes off as quite bitter and sad. The DVD is called, "That Man, Peter Berlin." They're both available through NetFlix.

Casey Donovan/Calvin Culver's classic "Boys in the Sand" was probably the first gay porn film that people actually took seriously as a work of art, and went to see openly with friends; even avant garde straight people of both sexes went to see it. He expected to have a career as a serious actor as a result of it, but unfortunately it turned out to be the high point of his career.

 

Have I ever mentioned that I had sex with Casey/Cal one night on the boardwalk on Fire Island? I have? More than once? Oh, well.

I'd rather hear about all of your life's experiences than a single reality show review, but that's just me. Was the sex with Casey hot? He seemed to be a real cum pig.

RE: Jack Wrangler

 

Ya... Gay Porn Pays Males more ten str8t porn. That's why there are so many str8t guys doing "Gay for Pay". I was in several movies where I played with str8t guys. One called "Behind The Sercret Door" was Great fun! THere was this guy dressed in a police officer suit. He comes in to make a house arrest and I toss his hungry hot ass around the kitchen, fuck him up against the stove and then on the floor of that kitchen... then make him lick my ass until I cum all over him. Great fun! Sane Rollins is also Str8t. I had hot sex with him on the set for Hot House's movie Justice. Great cock slurper and it was exciting knowing that his fiance was on the set. They got married about two weeks after we filmed. Something dirty about that I like~

Porn has all kinds of guys in it now. Not the same venue it used to be. Brad Benton: Attourney for example... Some of the other guys that have gone on to do great things have become real estate guys, accountants, Doctors.

>with Casey hot? He seemed to be a real cum pig.

 

I've heard from guys who had sex with him that his performance was programmed -- consitent and nevery varying. A guy was describing an encounter with somoene he'd picked up. The friend had experienced virtually the same routine. The friend identified the pick-up as Culver.

 

Still, programmed sex with a hottie like Culver may best spontaneous sex with a troll.

 

Another friend, a talent agent, kept trying to book Culver for commercials. But Culver was always off somewhere with a Daddy.

Many porn stars have died young from aids, suicide, accident and a few murder. On the other hand many have given up porn and go on to live what appear to be normal lives. Some have married women and had children. There are many I would like to know about, but of course, they are entitled to their privacy, and would not like to receive more attention because of their youthful activities.

I wouldn't call it programmed, unless the program was pretty short. He picked me up as we were passing one another on an empty stretch of boardwalk at night, and we explored one another partly standing up on the boardwalk and partly lying on it (not comfortable at all), for at most fifteen minutes. He kissed nicely and sucked cock well, as one might expect. Then he smiled and said good-night, and headed toward the Meat Rack. If I remember correctly, it was in 1977.

Considering the promiscuity of Cal/Casey, you're lucky to be still around. I wonder if Boys in the Sand is available on DVD? It is a true classic.

Wasn't there a book about Casey Donovan's life? (I seem to remember giving it away at a "white elephant" xmas exchange and seeing men about 20 years my senior wrangle over who would get it.) I believe it is there that I saw that part of his postporn-um was spent in Key West under the daddy-ship of author/actor Tom Tryon.

 

Kevin Kramer went on to a very different work life, according to a documentary called SEX/LIFE IN L.A. 2 - CYCLES OF PORN (correct me if I got the name wrong). I won't reveal it since it's a bit of s surprise. At least one other in the documentary appears to have gone on to a life of opulence and spending money on home remodeling with a very rich man.

 

I knew personally (but very irregularly) one minor porn star who, when I last met him, went on to make money occasionally doing scenes for an online website, a very short stint in the military, and escort work through an escort bar. He lived half in his van and half in the spare bedrooms of acquaintances, by choice, he said.

 

(At least that's what he told me. He said he would sometimes lie to people about his work situation so they would not get worried about him, so who knows if he was telling me all of the truth.)
