Gay Nude Flashback: Leo and Lance

Posted May 6, 2009 6:47 PM by with 16 comments


Gay porn’s own Leo Ford and Lance were pool boys and proto-twink celebrities — they partied with Halston and Andy Warhol in the early gay 80s — and still represent the an easy going antidote to the rest of gay civilization. Frankly, I’d let Carrie Prejean keep her damned opposite marriage as long as I could have a shot with these two in their prime.

    yeah they were something, but can’t we let them rest in peace ? one was still alive in Hilo running a travel agency, but one did pass.

    Well, the thng about any kind of celebrity is that the imagery lives on, even after you pass, and these two are legendary in the gay porn world. They just seemed to love what they were doing, and seemed to go in to it with such fervor that it is unimaginable to me they will ever be forgotten. Their sexual exploits o film will simply be enjoyable forever, no matter how dated the films seem, these two simply shine.

    There are few men in gay porn today who have the kind of visible enjoyment that Leo Ford seemed to have from the sex he was having. Maybe the modern porn world could learn a thing or two from his example.

    Ford had a luscious ass and could take anything a top had to give! Loved him.

    Yo cool…last thing I knew they both had passed, one from aids, the other one from a motorcycle accident a few weeks after the other one died; both in the early 90’s…just saying what I’ve read.

    Leo Ford actually came up to me at a bus stop (with a guy waiting for the response) acting like he was dumb (couldn’t talk that is), that he needed food. I pointed out the local soup kitchen and he wrote down it was closed. I almost drew him a map to where an apple tree was behind a barbed wire fence as response. Then, after acting like he was dumb, he went back and started talking to this guy sitting in the shelter at the bus stop. And he started the whole highly disturbing pretentious act by beckoning shhhhhhhh with his lips. And THAT is supposed to be a legend!?

    According to, they both died in 1991, Leo from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident, Lance from AIDS. I personally am happy for them to be frozen in 1983 celluloid. Their scene upstairs in the A-frame cabin in Leo and Lance is one of the sexiest ever in gay porn. Just two young, carefree guys enjoying each other’s naturally beautiful bodies (no overpumped muscles for these two) while taking shelter from the woods. There’s a secret, innocent feeling about the sex that AIDS took away from this world. Maybe they were a bit “blond”, but I just love that scene.

    I do remember Leo in a scene with two guys, who both got in his asshole (with their dicks at the same time). One was black… which is a rarity. When it was all over, Leo jumped into a pool like a frog except that he flapped his feet like he was wearing flippers. There’s quite a few scenes I remember. Call me on it.

    I saw Leo once at the Follies at the Unicorn Theatre in NYC, about 1983. This was in a long-ago era when the performers would walk through the audience, who would freely suck and fondle the stars. While so many performers seemed bored and grudging, Leo was into it. He went down on one guy in the audience and sucked the guy with enthusiasm until they both came. Leo pulled the customer’s dick out of his mouth so the guy would cum all over Leo’s face and mouth, and then gave the guy a big grin. Damn, he was just so incredibly sexual; always seemed like he could never get enough.

    A big grin because he got to escape in another session of thrill seeking covert fanaticism he was paid to do, and so of course it was all exactly as it always goes. And now it’s too late to change. And there are still many people who are given NO CHANCE beyond such pre-fabricated, pay to order behavior which is supposed to be different from those who follow the rules of another institution all this thrill seeking is supposed to contradict or amend. One can SEE easily how well it has all NOT worked!

    If I would describe Leo Ford in one word it would be “Abrasive.” Further more, I feel violated I ever was interested in his work.

    In 1985 I believe it was I contacted David Reis (Lance) through an escort ad in one of the big gay magazines. The guy at the agency told me I should not take Lance because he had a drug problem but I should hire him instead. He describe himself down to the large vein on his cock and then he was pretty put out when I said I wanted Lance anyway. Bottom line is I flew David to my city where for the first two days all he did was slept. Day three he was so appreciative he came to life and for a week it was like having this beautiful man for a real lover. He was gentle, considerate, intense and pounding rough when I was ready. When he left for California we parted as friends with much mutual respect. The funny thing. I had never been on good terms with either of the local gay bar owners. Somehow word got out that Lance was at my home and all of a sudden the owners both ‘just happened’ to call me and invite me to the clubs. I asked Lance and he preferred to just stay quietly visiting me. I took him for a two day camping trip at Elk Island Park where he enjoyed seeing the natural beauty of my part of Canada. I can say for sure this guy was better than in any porn video. What a treasure he was. Oh yes and finally I’ll say yes it was always bareback and thank God I remained healthy.
