What actually caused him to do the spread in Playgirl in 1974? Other macho jocks of his genre would balk at taking off their neckties in such circumstances. I shall always be eternally grateful for the spread. Any stories about him? He would be last last guy I would ever suspect.....
His cock is huge. Such an accomplished man. It was so nice of him to show us his manhood with a semi.
Why question, just admire
It was a time when some hot macho guys were doing just that. It was a time of sexual liberation and some people were really enjoying it.
That's an average cock? GMAFB. You bitches have been so ruined by porn, where 9" is considered average.
If I looked like that I'd pose for playgirl too. Damn.
r3, good response. If that was the Sexual Revolution, we're in the Thermidorian Reaction now.
OK, Hollywood Insiders that post here, tell me. Did Brown go the casting couch route like practically all other Hollywood actors? Is he one of the few in Hollywood that's 100% straight? If you think he's hot, take a look at Jr.!
There was an issue of Playgirl in the 80's or 90's with an unbelievable photo of an ex-Redskin named Jeffrey Lee Stevens in an article about Southern Gentlemen. Anybody got a post?
This guy? (NSFW) Ex pro NFL, Superbowl ring, etc..
That Jim Brown Playgirl spread and the one with Fabian both brought me so much 'pleasure.' I believe Brown's wife left him over this. Plus I think there was an incident where they had a fight and he threw her out of a window. Anyone able to confirm?
R14 I agree about Fabian. That man was smokin'!
Fabian was my first crush, he is a woman beater though
r12 very hot guy. And a good example of an average size dick in comparison to the equally hot Brown's which is indeed big (huge is hard to say when we are speaking of the flaccid). If you can't see that Brown has a big dick than you are being hopeless cock-contrarian, a bitch's kneejerk response to another man's finding anything impressive about another man.
Peter Lupus showed the biggest celebrity cock in PLAYGIRL.
Jim Brown tossed a girlfriend off a balcony in the 1970's, but it was after his PLAYGIRL spread was published.
"It was a time of sexual liberation and some people were really enjoying it."
What's so "liberating" about taking your clothes off for money? If anything, stripping for $$$$ is more common today, in the age of internet porn
R 15.He's still my favorite.. from 1970's.. Hot body.
R16- mine too! He was the first actor to get this little 'gay boy in training' all hot and bothered after I saw him in HIGH TIME and NORTH TO ALASKA. I knew about the wife beating cahrge. Happened mid -70's..
Thanks, r-12-13. Only Cassandra was less of a trendsetter than Jim Brown. That PLAYGIRL spread must have sent shockwaves across the entertainment and sports world. Another classical allusion - Pandora slams her box shut!
R20, you had to be there.
"you had to be there."
I was there.
I love 1970s porn magazines. Check out www.librairiemenageatrois.myshopify.com It's a great site for vintage porn. Lots of mustaches Adidas sneakers and hairy men.
Burt Reynolds became one of the most talked about stars in the world after his Cosmo spread. These guys were trying to revive their careers in the same way Reynolds did.
Bump for Jim Brown's penis and more Playgirl posts!
Jobst, the photographer
Wasn't Brown in Pgirl twice? First time no dick, the second with dick and the answer to my teen boy dreams. I actually shoplifted that issue from a grocery store in NH when I was visiting my grandparents. I put it in a Sunday NYT and paid for the Times and got the mag. I remember sitting in my grandfather's Elektra 225 and making merry with myself while the snow lazily dropped outside. I know...Mary!
How nostalgic! i wonder if the NFL's greatest player knows how much joy he furnished! Intended? I don't think even Marilyn Monroe could hold a candle to him! I paid for it, but I hid it in another magazine, I'm getting old, and I can't remember the other mag, needless to say.
I worked in a movie theater on Hollywood Blvd while I was attending UCLA. Jim B and some guy came in one night. Brown wouldn't speak to anybody - had his minion do all the talking. Stupid. He wanted his effing popcorn just so. There was something menacing about him. He wanted to be BAD.
Best celeb to come in was Ann Southern with son Georgie. She bought a ton of candy then insisted on a diet drink. She and the son had a lovely rapport. She was a hoot.
Thank God he was BAD! That spread shows how bad he was, But the question is, do you think he was aware at the time of the audience for the spread?
I see that the feminists and fraus are trying their best to destroy this thread.

Was this after the PLAYGIRL spread, and if so, how many guys followed him into the men's room?
I had him autograph an autobiography at a book signing, which I gave to my secretary. He was quite pleasant, since he had something to sell. He looked good, and I would have bought more than the book.
R34 After. He was a disappointment because I kept thinking about his cock and he was playing hard to get. Uppity fucker.
He was there but he didn't reciprocate - at all.
Any guesses how much the celebs (Jim Brown, Fabian, George Maharis, Christopher George etc) were paid to pose for Playgirl?
They were paid with my undying admiration and lust.
LOL R39! Mine too.
Neither Mr. Burt Reynolds nor Fred Williamson ever showed peen.
Reynolds did. There have ben posts here on Data Lounge of the show -it-all that appeared in the German magazine Der Stern (not primarily a gay or sexual publication). Obviously I need help, so please post. Both Brown and Reynolds have my undying gratitude.
R13, its was a layer girlfriend that he threw out a window.mI think henthrew his wife through a screen door when they lived in Shaker heights. I read some of the divorce transcript.
bump for more
Richard Pryor's ex-wife also accused Jim Brown of raping her. Might have been in her book.
I remember this pictoral and when I saw I knew it was all over for me. The stuff a gay fantasies a hot, hung black football player. A girl in my dorm had the Playgirl calendar and I would always sneak a peak at Mr. Brown. I was hot for him when I saw 100 Guns with Raquel Welch. I wanted to see him fuck Raquel. I thought Raquel was hot too but I was really tingly for Jim Brown. Swoon! Mary!
How in the hell is his dick average? What the fuck have you guys been getting on???? MY GOD!!!!
I agree R47. His dick is perfect.
Perfect...feeling that slide in your piehole.
Obviously, in the context of this thread, he's just a sex object.
Nevertheless, it is dispiriting to see the lack of reaction to mention of his abusive antics.
I read that during the filming of 100 Rifles Brown had a love scene with Raquel. Apparently he put his tongue in her ear and she went ballistic. A camera man friend on the set said it took forever to get thru that scene. His impression was that Brown was disrespectful with respect to Miss Welch.
Come on now ! Post the full frontal of Burt!!! It's been posted here before!!!
I'm glad Jim Brown is finally getting his due here! How many times have I moaned about the trend he didn't start!
I think he thought only Raquel would buy that Playgirl.
I want him to fuck me and NOT throw me off of a balcony. Happy, R50?
LOL R53. I want him to fuck me too.. I also want Fabian to fuck me and not strike me in the face like his ex-wife. And I want George Maharis to do it to me somewhere other than a gas sation restroom. ;)
I always found it odd that Fred Williamson never married or had kids, and now lives in Palm Springs...
Was he an AIDS infested homo?
FF the stupid bitch at R57.
To answer the OP, the question sounds as if you think he was knowledgeable that the magazine had a large gay audience. The straight men that posed for Playgirl were guys who thought they were God's gift to the female target audience for Playgirl. In the 70s, this would have not been at odds with a pro jock's image as a hetero stud.
You were more likely to see a peen in a blaxploitation film than a mainstream 70s film.
R60 Anyone remember Melvin Van Peebles' dick in "Sweet Sweetback's Badasssss Song?"
No but WEHT to you, Mario?
After seeing Brown, back in the day, that face ( so handsome with no moustache), body, & dick, after having sex, I might have let him throw me off a balcony too.
R62, Mario is one of the most perfect looking men alive. But I prefer Jim Brown's out-and-out butchness.
After nervously purchasing the issue with the Jim Brown naked photos when I was 17, I jerked off to them so many times I lost count.
Keep it coming! I'm still waiting on that frontal of Burt!
Google is your friend.
I hate how the Jim Brown semi erect photo has most of his penis semi-obscured. They seem to have done this a lot with black guys. Why were they so afraid of the black dick erect?
(3rd photo down at link)
R65, Playgirl didn't start showing fully erect dicks until later, this was probably early-mid 70's. Jim was probably almost 40 by then. Still, what a specimen he was.
THAT is some prime dusky beauty.
In the Cosmo shoot, Reynolds did go full frontal but Helen Gurley Brown nixed the shots and and said it was sexier to imagine what was behind the arm. From a marketing standpoint she was right. That centerfold pushed Reynolds into superstardom because it was so mainstream. A full frontal at the time would have been considered "dirty".
Raquel Welch also pissed off Jim Brown because in the love scene she was supposed to be naked behind him and she insisted that a towel be between them so her naked breasts didn't touch his skin. Jim thought it was racist but Raquel, who has never done a full topless scene and had no intention of doing it then, wanted to protect herself and was married at the time and thought it was too intimate.
Melvin tells a funny story on the commentary of "Sweet Sweetback's Badasssss Song" where he had to say the production was a porn shoot to get financing though he had no intention of it. In one scene the backer was there so he had to have real and sex and got Gonorrhea from the actress.
f68, which shot is the semi-erect?
Poor Jim doesn't get around so well these days, especially sad given that he gave up football in his prime. I can only imagine how bad his knees would be if he'd played any longer. Nice man, didn't even try to throw me out a window.
I love the pic of Jim B. looking out the window at R68. Beautiful skin and hair. Nice thick dick. So butch!
r75, that was the centerfold. I only wish Playgirl had shown some butt. He did show quite a bit of derriere in the movies, however, the best shot being"I escaped from Devil's Island,' which also starred another Playgirl centerfold, Christopher George. But you can't have everything.
Forgot all about Chris George. I thought he was so hot - the squinty eyes, hairy chest, deep voice. He must have died very young ....... Cause I'm very old. Did Lynda Day George, Day, whatever the hell her name was , ever remarry ?
According to Wikipedia, Christopher George was Vanna White's uncl. i think i see the resemblance.
