For many gay men of a certain age, Al Parker will always be the hottest porn star who ever lived.

He started out working for Hugh Hefner as a butler at the Playboy mansion and was soon discovered by the founder of Colt Studios, quickly becoming one of the most celebrated pornographers of his time.

Parker’s flexible and slender body was ideal for experimenting with sexual positions. He was also always eager to try never-before-seen-on-film sex acts, like pouring beer down a lover’s cock before swallowing it. With and enormous package of his own and facial hair that has been revived as the homo pornstache look du jour, Parker continues to be one of the most recognized performers in the industry.

The man went on to start his own porn production studio which pioneered the art of themed narrative feature films (as supposed to sex videos on loop). His studio was also one of the few which mandated performers to use condoms after the AIDS pandemic broke. Ironically tragic considering Parker’s eventual death of AIDS-related complications in San Francisco at the age of forty.

    I remember Drew very well…such a sweet guy….when he worked as an assistant to photographer, Michael Childers. At the time I had no idea about his porn career….and perhaps it was before his porn career.

  3. I don’t believe anyone today can ever really know what gay life was like in the 70s and 80s unless you lived it, as I did. I used to see Al Parker now and again at the Mother Lode on Santa Monica Boulevard. He was the most sensual man I have ever seen. The night when he came up to me and asked me to go home with him, I thought I had died and gone to heaven, in fact I did go to heaven, and Al Parker took me there. Back then, at that time, it was so much easier to be gay as we were making tremendous strides in liberation. Most people, at least in LA, didn’t care if you were gay or not. Then AIDS reared its ugly head and everything was wiped away, literally overnight. Things are getting better now, but the losses gays incurred created a huge vacuum that can never be reclaimed. I’m still in love with Al Parker even though I was with him only for one night. Love can happen and go away so quickly. Thanks for writing about Al. It’s important to me.
