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

Back in 1972 Burt Reynolds met Helen Gurley Brown, the late editor of Cosmopolitan, on the set of a late night talk show. She talked him into posing nude for her magazine, and since the ’70s were a wild and crazy time for Burt, he agreed as sort of a joke. The result was an iconic, trailblazing and oft imitated photo. But there’s one shot from this legendary shoot that you weren’t supposed to see. Take a look after the jump…by

This picture reminds me of the mad crush I used to have on Burt Ward from the Adam West Batman series. I’d watch that show everyday religiously right after school. Those little green briefs from the classic Robin costume started my lifelong fascination with male bulges. And I would’ve given anything to see what he was hiding around back, under that bright yellow cape.
Here’s a lewd pin-up of classic ’80s porn star Kevin Williams to get your motor humming. Vroom vroom! This tasty twink was one vintage piece of ass back in the day. Click to enlarge.

An oldie but a goodie. The jeans make it look dated, but a big ‘n’ thick cock never goes out of style.

It looks like gay porn star Mark Slade is learning to love himself.
Remember that scene from the Catalina classic Idol Thoughts when famously gay-for-pay porn legend Ryan Idol sucked his first cock? The way he worked over Tom Katt’s boner had me convinced it wasn’t Ryan’s first blowjob.by
Forty years ago this month, Sam J. Jones — who you might remember from his nostalgic cameo as Mark Wahlberg‘s childhood idol in the movie Ted — was Playgirl magazine’s Man of the Month. As you can see from this vintage centerfold, even if the Flash Gordon star wasn’t the most gifted actor, he was most definitely gifted. And he’s still quite handsome — even if his hair isn’t parted down the middle.
Sometimes I think the only good cop is a naked stripper cop. This big dicked boy in blue is actually classic gay porn star Bo Summers.

Classic Colt model, Steve Schulte (porn name: Nick Chase), eventually quit modeling and got into politics. A political rival tried to discredit him by exposing his gay porn past to the public. This meant mailing out scandalous photos of Schulte completely nude and fully erect. But this dirty tricks campaign backfired big time, and Schulte went on to become the third mayor of West Hollywood. (see attached image below) Seriously. In what universe could someone think a bunch of WeHo size queens would say no to a big, beautiful cock like the fleshy appendage we see dangling between his legs in this vintage beefcake photo?by
Some revealing footage of the always iconic and usually naked Warhol Superstar Joe Dallesandro from the DVD extras of Flesh — the underground film that turned him into an international sex symbol. This behind the scenes clip shows (not so) Little Joe totally nude and taking directions from a lady photographer who takes the hands-on approach when it comes to dealing with his penis.
