With his ruggedly handsome features and athletic physique, Randy Spears was the antithesis of Ron “The Hedgehog” Jeremy. When he began his adult film career in the late 1980s, straight male porn stars could be average looking to downright ugly, but Randy Spears was one of the few exceptions to that rule.
In these promotional stills from the solo-only jack off video Straight to Bed Randy’s strategically ripped stonewashed jeans are giving us a peak at his peen. See more promo shots of Randy Spears lumber-jacking off after the jump…by
These days Jeff Griggs is a blue-eyed silver fox who can occasionally be found on TV shows like NCIS, Criminal Minds, Shameless or the Amazon original Bosch — a series that also features James Ransone and Nicholas Gonzalez. But in the late ’80s and early ’90s this mainstream TV actor had a youthfully indiscreet career as a gay porn actor under the aliases Tony Erickson and Tony Sinatra.
After tabloids outed his gay porn past, he was allegedly fired from the daytime soap opera Days of Our Lives because a female co-star refused to perform love scenes with a “faggot.” But he continued to find work on such ’90s TV staples as Beverly Hills, 90210, Babylon 5 and Silk Stalkings. I’m especially fond of his memorable turn as a psychotic male stripper in the erotic crime thriller Breaking Point, which co-starred Gary Busey and a pre-Sex And the City Kim Cattrall.
In these stills from Catalina Video’s Head Struck, Griggs plays a homophobic hetero who forgets his sexual orientation because of amnesia. This leads to a whole lot of experimental cock sucking and butt fucking as he tries to figure out if he’s gay or straight. Sure, it could happen…

Friday flashback. Remember when Ryan Idol was still hot? No? Don’t take my word for it. Just check out these glamour shots from one of his earliest videos, the Jerry Douglas skin flick Trade Off — one of your artier porn videos.
He’s currently a hot mess doing a stretch at Valley State Prison for trying to murder his ex-girlfriend with a toilet tank lid, but back in the day he was just plain hot. At the height of his career this one-time Playgirl Man of the Month (February 1989) could allegedly demand $50,000 per movie. He was even hot enough to snag a few legit acting jobs after retiring from porn. (He made his Broadway debut in 2007 under his real name, Marc Anthony Donais, in a revival Terrence McNally’s The Ritz.)
But much like Boogie Nights, Paul Thomas Anderson’s chronicle of the Golden Age of Porn, things took a nasty turn in the third act. There was a drug fueled suicide attempt, a bizarre charity scandal, and the aforementioned domestic violence incident that put him behind bars.by
Leo Ford is best known as the first half of the 1980s gay porn duo Leo & Lance, but his notoriety — thanks largely to his stunning good looks — extended beyond the gay porn scene. There was an alleged Fire Island tryst with fashion mogul Calvin Klein as well as a supposed romantic relationship with cult movie icon Divine. The platinum blond porn stud was also rumored to be the nude cover model on The Smiths’ Hand In Glove. (Almost certainly not true.) Unfortunately, Leo went the way of James Dean. (“Live fast, die young and have a good-looking corpse!”) He died in 1991 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on Sunset Boulevard.by
