Famous male sex symbol of Andy Warhol's underground films of the late 60s to early 70s. He later moved to acting in mainstream Hollywood movies. An artist model for Andy Warhol, he later became a top international fashion model. Early in his modeling career, he posed for Bob Mizer of the Athletic Model Guild.
This album has grown beyond my wildest expectations. I’m spending what free time I have looking for new vintage (that’s an oxymoron) pictures. I’ve learned so much about some of these men. Some loved posing, some hated posing, some embraced their bare past while some regretted it. Some of these men are still alive, most have passed. I’ve reached out to Brian Idol. He has declined my request to talk. I respect that. Maybe he’ll change his mind one day. Some of these men were career criminals, some were addicts, alcoholics, hustlers (common theme), some were strait laced, some were straight. Some died young, some in WWII, some in Korea, some in Vietnam. I intentionally did not post any pictures of known killers (the 2 brothers who murdered a fading actor in the late 1960’s come to mind).
The candid pictures from WWII (even WWI) and Korea and Vietnam did not put any money in the pockets of the “models”. Those were pictures that the soldiers snapped to pass the time and lighten the day. They snapped the pictures of their naked fellow servicemen as a joke, in most cases. Never knowing the pictures would see the light of day 80 years later.
As for the models, I’m sure the money was the motive. The studios or independent photographers had no shortage of young men who would pose in a strap or (illegally) completely naked for their cameras. That’s where your addicts and alcoholics and hustlers came in to the picture. Now, I must say, not all of the models fall in to those 3 categories. Though I’m assuming most would hustle if the price was right. Not all were addicts or alcoholics. Some simply needed the money. They could pose a couple hours, make a few dollars ($5-$10), and no one back home would be the wiser. After all, these young models were in Los Angeles or New York or Northern California. Their families were in Texas or Montana or North Carolina or West Virginia or…you get the point. The models assumed their scandalous pictures would be shared to the homosexual underground. Their families would never see them. Besides, the pictures wouldn’t be around 100 years from then. I mean, who in the 21st century would ever see the pictures, right? The WWII soldiers and sailors couldn’t imagine us seeing their 1940’s nudies in 2023, right? The 1950’s and 1960’s models couldn’t foresee the technological advances that would keep their pictures alive forever. Those young men thought their pictures would fade into obscurity.
Skimpy little pieces of material with seems at the pressure point of ripping separate us from the gold. Mostly print pages scanned from old magazines, including Playboy, TV Guide, People, Men's Health, and others to bring back fond childhood memories.
Some celebrity bulges and others are mixed in for fun!

Hunky blond actor in the golden age of porn. His porn career spanned 9 years from 1982 to 1991. While mostly doing straight porn, he did a couple of movies for gay porn studios. He retired to become a professional body builder.
Please excuse the bad quality of some images. It was NOT the fault of the scanner.
This was a dumpster-fire of a magazine, never sure of it's purpose. Short-lived during the mid-1970s, it tried to be competition for Playgirl. The photography was often from far away, dark and in shadows, hiding the models. The pictorials were sparse and by the end, no longer featured nude men. I guess America didn't need another Cosmo mag.
