He wasn''t really that good looking. I''m looking back, and I''m shocked at the amount of guys gays fussed over decades ago, and they really weren''t hot to begin with. I think people took what they could find. Now, gay porn has come up with crop after crop of Abercrombie and Fitch models. The oldsters can''t compete.
Time for a little nighty night, OP.
I think he was very good-looking, but looks are subjective.\
What he had was enormous presence and screen power in a way 99% of gay porn stars did not have. He was a giant of 1980''s gay porn.\
His performances in "Bigger Than Life" were stunning and are incapable of being replicated by most of the nameless porn twinks of today.
I was 12 when i saw my first Stryker film. Stryker Force. He was the most perfect specimen I ever saw.
Isn''t 12 a little young to be watching gay porn?
By the very nature of the industry the oldsters are not suposed to compete. They had their time. Now new kids have their turn. This is true not only in porn but in every aspect of life. \
Please look up vintage porn from say 1912 and see if you think Stryker is hotter than those people.
The answer would be yes, R5
Two reasons: he had a very big dick and a deep, masculine voice. Most porn stars nowadays have such effeminate voices.
True, he had a great voice.\
And yes, his cock was enormous.\
Incidentally, I think it''s his birthday this month.
R4, Yes it is. I found it in my older brother''s bedroom one day when I was home alone. I put it on and after that, I was hooked. %0D\
Also, before anybody says something disgusting. No, I never had any sort of inappropriate conduct with my brother. He died of AIDS when I was 19.
R2 is Jeff Stryker\
[quote]His performances in "Bigger Than Life" were stunning and are incapable of being replicated by most of the nameless porn twinks of today\
A piece of meat that''s paid to cum.
I''m sorry to hear that, R9. : (\
As for Stryker, he turns 49 on August 21:
Her voice was always a little too staged and contrived for my tastes.
Jeff had such narrow hips and such a nice, small ass.
Bobby has all of Jeff''s old films.
Does anybody remember a few years back the drama with his son? It was on the news here locally in LA. His son was beatup and in the hospital. They said it was racially motivated, but I always thought it might have something more to do with his dad being the biggest most famous gay porn star ever. %0D\
I haven''t seen any pics of his son lately. He must be in his 20s by now. I''m surprised Chuck hasn''t put him in some films by now. He seems like the type that would.
he is masculine and had a nice tight muscular body, especially for that era. that will get you attention.
I guess it depends on where you "W"...what part of "Jeff in action with Derek Cameron" .....oh, never mind.
Yes R19 because a thread about Jeff Stryker is bound to be safe for the office. \
Fuck off and get back to work, frau!
He was gorgeous in Powertool. He really had something then. But then he became dull with drugs and full of himself.
There''s no way R2 is Stryker, R10. He could never spell such words. He was signing pictures at a bar in the 90s and you could see him struggling to spell as he signed each picture.
He was the gay fantasy man come to life. Straight acting, nasty talking, hot body, and totally aloof.
I''m a retard.
LOL @ R17. There''s nothing like slowly scrolling down and having a penis creep up your screen.
Actually I''m such a fucking retard that I didn''t realize I was R19 and not R18. I also eat shit.
While we''re on the subject...DAMN, Derek Cameron is one beautiful, attentive bottom! I''d kill to have him as my man.
Well then OP all those oldsters will kill themselves now that you''ve declared what shall now and forever be the law regarding gay porn. \
God you''re a tool.
1. I love Derek Cameron as well. %0D\
2. I never really found Jeff super attractive. Not sure if it was the smoker''s voice or that he seemed so straight and uncomfortable doing those vids sometimes. When I watched the lionked vid, I was shocked to see vids of Jeff kissing a guy. I don''t think I had ever seen him do that. All the vids I had seen of him was all about him being serviced.
Stryker was in LA''s pride parade a few years back and he looked like ass.
Stryker was very much sex-on-legs. I didn''t see his original movies--just the ones on the internet now. But he had a sexy face, great body, bubble butt, big cock, and he talked nasty. What''s not to like??
[quote]And yes, his cock was enormous.\
But obviously not enormous enough. The dildo company that produced his replica added inches to it and he was really pissed. Most guys would have welcomed even more, he almost sued. \
[quote]He was signing pictures at a bar in the 90s and you could see him struggling to spell as he signed each picture\
Did it occur to you he might be severely Dyslexic?
He has not aged well. Looks very rough around the edges and gives off a kind of crazy, red-neck vibe. That said, when I saw him onstage in one of his lurid melodramas that gave him the chance to strip and be admired, he was very nice when I met him afterwards. And that cock was just hanging there, huge. I almost shook it instead of his hand.
Back in the 80s he had an "appearance" at the Campus Theatre in San Francisco. My man & I went to see him, the place was packed. He came out and started... talking! At one point he said "I don''t strip or nothin'', but maybe I''ll dance around." I thought all those pissed off queens were gonna charge the stage! \
But then they had a stripper who performed on the rings, like in the Olympics. He was awesome!
Old Gay Dude
Eh, Jeff Stryker was OK. Nice cock and all, but too shaved and plucked otherwise.%0D\
Now Ryan Idol, there''s one I never got.
I like him. Haven''t a clue why. I think the first porn you ever see really sticks with you.
Tom Chase is my favorite top. Or was. Before he became a bear.
He was very hot in a normal, believable guy sort of way. Today''s porn stars look manufactured, like blow up dolls.
Someone posted here last summer that they''d just seen him in Provincetown and he looked like hell.
He was beautiful according tot he standards of the beauty of the early 1980s. Men with very beautiful angelic faces were idolized then, like Christopher Atkins, and that was the kid of facial beauty Jeff Stryker had. He also seemed very muscular compared to the other twinkish men who did gay porn at the time (though the Colt guys were much more muscular than he, they occupied a very special niche then). And of course, porn in the early 80s, and no one had a more impressive cock then than he did.
Good looking and sexy are not synonymous.%0D\
A lot of us are looking for sexy when it comes to watching sex.%0D\
A lot of A&F models are not sexy although they are almost always very good looking.%0D\
A lot of good looking people are not sexy at all.%0D\
Then there are those who are both.%0D\
Stryker was certainly not bad looking and while I don''t think he''s the hottest man who ever lived, he certainly had a devilish smile, an appealing body and was aggressively playful without taking his swagger very seriously.%0D\
This worked then and I would venture to say it would work now.%0D\
He was a BRILLIANT actor! Why, with just one glance with his eyes, you knew exactly what he was thinking!
Here he is in "Bigger Than Life"\
He was gorgeous!
OP, are you blind? The dude was hot back then. I would assume that he was the first "gay 4 pay" porn actor in videos. But, as of lately, he does label himself as "bisexual".
[quote]I was 12 when i saw my first Stryker film. Stryker Force. He was the most perfect specimen I ever saw%0D\
You were way too young to be watching that stuff.
In the clip from R43''s link Jeff is wearing a condom. I thought he only fucked bareback? Shit.
Bareback porn fan
You sound almost disappointed, r50.
How can you enjoy BB porn. I know it''s fantasy for the viewer, but just the idea of watching possible transmission of HIV during a love scene freaks me out.
At least gay porn models in the 80''s didn''t have hideous tattoos all over their bodies. My personal favorite is Al Parker. He is ageless.
Most of Stryker''s work was performed before the HIV crisis really hit. So you can enjoy his films without any quilt. His later work occurred when they thought nonnoxyol 9 lube killed HIV.
He was very young when he started out and the Elvis-y look combined with the muscles and the huge dick made for his big impact.\
Fat disgusting "massage therapist" in St. Louis still crows about sucking Stryker off back when he was nearly chicken. Stryker was on the bar circuit and needed some muscle work.
[quote]"So you can enjoy his films without any quilt."%0D\
WHO wants to use Nana''s quilt as a cumrag?%0D\
I''m still laughing that R19 - the clueless snipe - couldn''t read the post, look at the link''s description, and realize that in some cases "NSFW" is not merely redundant, it''s an insult to intelligence. Of course that requires a person having....
I always felt weird watching porn in the 1980s. The Costello Presley music, the contrived plots, the forced intercutting was almost clinical.\
I enjoy the more natural haphazard porn of today. I sometime download, er "purchase" (yeah, right) vintage porn and treat it like an appetizer. I can'' get off on it, except for a few faves like Johnny Davenport.\
Met Stryker once; he''s short!
Falcon or bust.
I love people think 12 is too young to be watching porn. How naive.\
I was into internet porn starting at around age 12, it is around the time most boys start masturbating and it is perfectly natural.\
Hang out with some actual middle-schoolers, you would probably be surprised.
The first time I saw gay porn I was disgusted. It was shocking to see guys shoving double-sided dildos up their assholes. The first gay porno I ever saw was Code of Conduct which, looking back, was a bit hardcore for my first exposure.
Does Jeff still take bookings?
Stryker is the greatest Gay porn star of them all. Deal with it.
R63, Are you insane? Stryker is over 30 years old (the natural cutoff for remaining a human being in the gay subculture), maybe even 50 by now. He probably smells like an old man and has bad breath and mumbles a lot about the high cost of dildo''s nowadays. Aging porn stars are not to be seen or heard because it just might wake up a few young gays to the horror that they too shall age. So old gay men must be kept under wraps at all costs. Make them wear shrouds like Lepers in the ancient Middle East and have them shout "unclean" as they approach so all the fabulous 20 decade boys can scream and run.
He had a definite personality. Hard to think of any other gay porn star--including lots of men who were much hotter physically--who had that.
My first porn was Al Parker in some yarn where he is picked up by police for trying to piss on the side of the road. They take him to jail, and strip off his clothes. The police stay in the uniforms and the sex begins. Very hot. Those early orgasms to Al Parker were earth shaking. I was around 14.
"He was the gay fantasy man come to life. Straight acting.."%0D
Okay, straight ANYTHING isn't MY fantasy. However, the point is moot because Stryker seemed quite gay to me. He has some very femme moves in a lot of his movies. So what he didn't want to suck dick on camera or get fucked. You really think that's straight acting? That's just a whore giving you a tease so you'll shell out more bucks. Not only that, it's a tired porn trope and it was tired back then. New meat acts like trade. Sooner or later, trade becomes the queen. Before Styrker had his porn producer daddies "grooming him for stardom," he flat out admitted he was gay. Than he said something about being pansexual, (he started fucking Calphalon or something?) and then it was whatever he thought would get him the most interest.%0D
I HATE--HATE the fact that people imitated his "retard getting DA suck job" voice in real life. That's the problem with porn--people see it and copy it and don't seem to understand there's a difference between porn and real life.%0D
OTOH-- mute the volume and he was hot to me: a pocket gay with an ass of death and a nice meaty dick to hold on to. And he had more issues with his hair than Star Jones had with all her weaves. It was endearingly neurotic.
In one video, his haicut got a special credit.

You''re a pedo, aren''t you?\
I always thought it was bizarre that of all the guys he fucked, the one guy he actually sucked on camera was the least attractive.
F&F the Anita Bryant wannabe at r69. We have enough of the Religious Reich pouring out their pedo accusations without some DL hate-monger doing the same. F&F for R69 and its Fundie frau mentality!!!!!!!
"I HATE--HATE the fact that people imitated his "retard getting DA suck job" voice in real life. "\
what kind of people did you hang around that imitated a gay porn star?
[quote]DA suck job%0D\
Explain this phrase, please.
District Attorney Jack McCoy
i guess, if JS did a flip-flop with Ryan Idol would have been the best selling gay porn ever.
Where do you basement dwellers get the idea that Ryan Idol was some uber-masculine porn heartthrob? For real? The bronzer, the shaved pubes, the thong tan line, could he be any more femme?
R73, that''s a reference to an incident recounted here years ago in which the poster picked up a guy who seemed hot and normal at first. Once he got home it became clear that the guy was mentally challenged. "Dat''s da suck job!" he exclaimed, looking up from giving a blowjob.
Thanks, r76. How did I miss that story the first time ''round?
