R7, that's the father, when he was very young.
He had a very boy-next-door quality, though he was very pumped and cut, and changed his appearance a bit depending on whether he had chest hair and how his head and facial hair was cut.
He was absolutely stunning in his time, and I jerked off to him a lot, though, I really prefer men who are not so 'roided up.
me too, I'd love to see the vid, he was priceless. the link given is a shoddy one.
You have to register on the site and after you sign up you can see a free preview of the video.
[RE 15] Was curious to see a current pic. Wow, aging is always a surprise, when you've only seen the younger , beautiful pics. Would never have known it's the same guy.
I'm curious - was he a staunch Christian, when he originally posed naked for all those photos ? Wouldn't that have been unusual, knowing they were going into gay mags ? Or is he 'born again' , and shunned that whole previous life ?
Well, yeah, if he was age 28-30 in those classic pics - that was 25 years ago - so he would be in his 50s now.
He looks (in R15 pic) like a middle aged guy who has originally handsome potential beneath his looks, but spent a *lot* of time in the sun. (turkey neck, etc)
You Fangirl worshippers make me sick! Life's, get em!
R24, what then are *you* doing on Datalounge? Don't you have some wonderful life to run along and obtain?
He's still a nice-looking man, if not QUITE as stunning. Wonder what his body looks like now?
"Whoa! John Pruitt turned me gay."
Yeah. Blame someone else.
He probably is more attractive than R15's photo shows him to be.
He's tall, and the photo makes him look small, so he's probably more imposing in person.
Also, it's likely he stopped the steroids many years ago, so he wouldn't be as pumped, but that's not really attractive to me, anyway.
I'm thinking he's still an appealing man in person, even at his age.
And Jesus, R27, could you be any more of a douche? I'm not the person you quoted, but it looks like a joke to me. Or like he's saying John Pruitt's photos made him realize he was gay or were his first jerk-off pics, etc. Lighten up.
"You Fangirl worshippers make me sick! Life's, get em!"
"Life's"? Here's some advice for you: Spelling Dictionary, get it!"
You think John Pruitt was on steroids? Oh, please...what makes you think that?
He was on steroids and he hustled. A friend of mine has some polaroids he took of him getting fucked at a 'private party'.
Christian and he hustled? was he a "temple prostitute"?
Time is rarely kind to those Colt men from the 70s and early 80s. Recently I saw a photo of Rick Wolfmier, who was a bearded and muscled Adonis in 1981 or 82 or so, and he had become a complete middle-aged nebbish.
Probably became a xian to fight against the gay...Marcus Bachman anyone?
Am I missing where it says he's gone Xtian?
Apparently Jim French is his son's godfather.
R35 Jim Yount made several blogs wherein the bio it says he's a born-again Christian.
Tick Wolfmeier today. Oh dear. (the guy with the red tie)
I think that profile is a prank/fake r37.
R36 do you have any links?
I had to read his bio @ r15's link two times, and I still have no idea what he does for a living.
I have the Jim French book that Bruno Gmuder published last fall. French says that Yount's wife actually brought him to French; she was somehow acquainted with his work. Yount was fresh out of the Navy. Can you imagine him in his dress whites?
French also says Jim had the unique ability to get instantly hard on command during photoshoots.
R38 There are several blogs he's created apparently. None of them are well updated.
R39 that blog reads like it might have been created by an unhinged fan... I don't think someone who's so professionally accomplished in the business world would be so incredibly lacking in writing skills.
Usually born-agains have what they consider a wicked past.
Sometimes models can be so beautiful and perfect that they are boring and lack sex appeal. Not JP in his prime. I remember breaking out in a sweat when I first saw his photos at the local gay bookstore in the 80s. Remember when you had to go to the bookstore to find images like that. Remember when there wasn't an internet!
Eldergay at 47
Rick W. has two children now? I thought the other model (Mike something) was his boyfriend for several years. Did someone or something turn him straight?
R43 Viagra turned him....capable anyway.
I seriously doubt that's Rick Wolf-whatever.

A lot of Pruitt fans would pay to see those.
R43 Mike Betts (real name Bob Brawley) was Rick's boyfriend during the period when they made their Colt films. According to the Jim French book, Rick was a "wife' in the relationship.
Mike has unfortunately passed. I had read that it was suicide on the Yuku Muscle Forums (which, if one needs to find out these sort of things, is the place to go); however, in the French book, he says it was AIDS.
I think John Pruitt posed for more photos than Jeff Stryker. Too bad he didn't do some man on man videos.
That blog says Pruitt's/Yount's favorite book is Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. How could he be a Christian and love Atlas Shrugged?
He definitely is cuter now than the other pic that was posted
Oh wow! Still a stunner. Some people have all the luck. Thanks for the link.
Now if only there was a long-lost Kevin Williams video.
Wasn't Pruitt a top/record setting swimmer in college? Or do I have him confused with someone else?
I remembered it was kind of intriguing that he had gone from (obviously) swimmer's build to such a BIG muscle guy.
He does look good in a couple of those pics at R51. One of those rare guys that is great looking at every stage of their life.
Wow, his wife is sure keeping in shape for her man.
That vid of him showering and jerking was on one of those tube sites for quite a while and then it was gone. Another fitness vid is at the link.
A while back I was reading the Wiki for Jim French and someone had added something like: "When Jim isn't busy with his hobbies, you can find him trolling for some Marine cock down at the docks of San Diego."
Then that was gone too.
This picture is also probably the cause of my love for clipped (not shaved) hair on the torso. I know there are lots of body hair trolls here who despise any trimming, but the body hair at r56 is my personal ideal.
I always thought Pruitt's body was magnificent, but his head was unnaturally small for a body that large.
Hot! John turned me gay
The easy access to the latest updates in gay porn makes me appreciate the 'old' or 'vintage' homoerotic stuff even more since there seems to be not much effort behind gay hardcore images and clips anymore. Yes, at first it can be exiting to see hot young dumb guys taking naked pictures of themselves in front of the bathroom mirror with their latest iPhone, but it just becomes one more fad that desensitizes your appreciation of the general gay public for the naked male form imho. That being said I do like tumblr sites like Dudetube who put an artistic spin on the concept of guys taking mobile phone pictures of themselves nude and erect.
Kyle Jessup was/is way hotter than Pruitt. Jessup is also a dad now lol
Did he ever do anything but nudity? No jack-off or interactive?
He was on a TV exercize/fitness show for awhile.
I think you can find John Pruitt fitness show on YouTube
Weren't all or at least most of the Colt guys straight bodybuilders from the 80's and on till Colt was bought out?
From what I read in the Jim French monograph released last year, it was a mix of gay and straight men.
It always seemed like the ones I thought were the hottest in the late 80's early 90's turned out to be straight. Is there a list of who was gay and straight somewhere? It would be interesting to see what they looked like now.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
