Yes, when his TV Guide Tarzan cover came out, I use to jerk off to it all the time.

At the time, I was more taken with the cinema Tarzan, Mike Henry. Now that I'm older, I can appreciate the charms of Ron Ely..sigh..

Yeah, the sexiest man during his time. I remember thinking about his nakedness while jerking off that time.

He was nothing compared to Mike Henry -- just a skinny, chinless zero. But Mike Henry was Michaelangelo's David as a football star turned chiseled muscleman Tarzan.

Wow. Just binged him: Mike Henry IS awesome.

Mike got all the ha-man good looks in the Henry family.
His brother was Buck Henry.

OMG, that's too funny. As funny as Woody Allen having to look at his son Ronan as a cruel joke on him.

Very chewable nipples on Ely, too. Didn't he host a game show once?

I'd bury my face in Mike Henry's crotch and live there for the next ten years.

As Tarzan, Ely had a quiet masculinity to his whole being, his stance, his physical body...he always was looking out for Jai, which made him all the more appealing.%0D %0D Harvey Fierstein said once on a local talk show that he saw an episode of Tarzan as a kid and in it Tarz and Jai slept out together overnight in the jungle and he thought he'd like to be Jai, just hanging out with Tarzan sleeping next to him.%0D %0D He's not alone.%0D %0D

I was in love with Denny Miller and Race Bannon too. Ron Ely was gorgeous but he played Tarzan with a polished vocab and, believe it or not, that turned me off of him.%0D %0D Maybe the no-chest hair thing turned me off as well. Never thought about it before.

And Duke the surfer on "Gilligan's Isle" R21. He also played the military husband to Juliet Prowse on a short lived show she had. They put him in very tight white tee shirts frequently. Thank you to whoever instituted that.
Count me as another who had a permanent boner for Mike Henry as Tarzan. Lot's of daydreams about me as "The Boy" with that dream daddy Tarzan as a kid.

Ron had the nicest tits on TV. Those babies needed some serious sucking!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOT HOT HOT and that loincloth often showed major meat. I used to get so fucking turned on watching that show as a kid. WHY IS THIS SHOW NOT ON DVD????????? Ron was a fantasy dad during my youth as was Harry Reems when I was a bit older.

Mike Henry WAS hot.

Did Ron or Mike ever have Janes to play opposite as Tarzan? Any romantic scenes for those two?%0D %0D Are those guys still with us today? Any recent photos?

No love for Christopher Lambert as Greystoke? I thought he was great & sexy in that role -- wonky eyes notwithstanding.

Nobody saw that movie R28. Saturday afternoons watching Ely's Tarzan was great. He was so beautiful.

Whoops, not only did I not see R22's post, I fucked up the link. Oh well.
Lex Barker was another hot Tarzan, but apparently a creep in real life -- Lana Turner's daughter, Cheryl Crane, claims he molested her as a teenager.

bump for Ron. He was one of the few outlets I had. Besides him, I had to wait for the rare episode of Flipper where the Dad would take his shirt off.

I have to say, looking at the photos of the 1960s and 70s Tarzans like Ron, Mike and Denny, there was an ease to showing off their unwaxed and unshaven bodies in those rather silly little loincloths that we would never see today in these puritanical and homophobic times. %0D %0D It reached a silliness in the 80s with pretty boys Miles O'Keefe and Casper Van Dien when Tarzan looked like he'd just been customized in a West Hollywood spa and I wonder if those images finally put an end to Tarzan as a true mythical hero for teenage boys and a gay fantasy for the rest of us? %0D %0D Wasn't Disney's cartoon the last time he starred in a film or TV show?

Did Johnny Weissmuller shave or wax all of his body hair? %0D %0D He's never discussed here but I think he was pretty hot in those very early Tarzan films.

Weissmuller lived near my parents in his retirement years. He had a very hairy chest when seen at the country club pool.

By the time Mike Henry came around the Tarzan pictures were the second half of drive-in double features.

But Ron Ely was on television--I think Mike Henry was just in the movies. I think Ron Ely was the sexiest Tarzan of any--movies or TV.

The Seahunt remake Ron Ely starred in also showed those awesome tits. Northing beats those Tarzan shows-every week seeing near closeups of Rons huge erect nipples. I can not believe his fucking hot body in that tiny loincloth made it past the blue haired network censors. How any one could look at Ron in Tarzan and not think about sex is beyond me!!!!!!!!!
