Movie of the Week: “The Bigger the Better”

The Bigger the Better

This Matt Sterling classic is arguably the best gay porn flick ever made. More specifically, it’s the second scene, where not-so-apt pupil Rick Donovan overpowers his teacher, Matt Ramsey, with his massive cock, and manages to fuck two insanely voluminous, over-the-shoulder loads from the eager bottom.
It’s a great movie that stands on its own some twenty years after it was released, but especially noteworthy since shortly after it came out, Ramsey reinvented himself as a straight (and quite prolific) porn star, Peter North.

North/Ramsey never denied working with Sterling, but denied ever bottoming on camera. He dubiously claims a body-double was used for all penetration shots. Like Hollywood, the porn world certainly isn’t above using a body double, but luckily Sterling’s camera captures everything.

This is a rare film where not fast-forwarding works to the viewer’s advantage. Putting the “cock” in Hitchcock, Sterling starts building the sexual tension well before the first cock is unleashed.

This title has yet to be released on DVD (an outrage if you ask us!) But because it was released in ’84 and distributed since by several studios (at last count: VCA, Falcon, and Bijou,) you most likely will be able to find an old copy in your local video store. You can also watch it now on

    I rented this movie over 15 years ago, the scene with Rick Donovan and Matt Ramsey is probably the best scene ever. The other scenes are great but that one is memorable. I also the the one where Matt Ramsey and the student, “working out”. The other scene I like is the one where the two guys are out looking for girls and end up in bed together, great scene. Can somebody please tell when this movie is available on DVD. Please!!! Please !!!

    Scenes I liked best were Matt Ramsey’s long cum shots. He can shoot into his face and beyond.
