My First Porn Crush: Adam Baran on Ryan Idol

Posted September 14, 2011 11:14 AM by with 4 comments

When former BUTT magazine editor Adam Baran told us he was working on a film about a kid’s attempt to smuggle porno home, we immediately asked him about HIS first gay porn. Turns out Jackpot is more than a little autobiographical, because he wrote back this seconds later about porn star Ryan Idol.

“This advertisement for a phone sex line called 1-800-PHONE-ORGY features what I consider one of the hottest images ever produced,” he wrote. “I remember seeing this advertisement, not in a gay porno magazine, but in a smaller quarter of an ad page in the inside of a Hustler Magazine that I furtively purchased from a bodega in New York City one day when I was working as a volunteer for the 1996 Clinton campaign.”

The shot, his tormented attempts to secure it, and the gay feature film that it inspired after the jump

A phone orgy? Is that like a party line?

Gay porn and I have always had a special, tormented relationship. When I was 12, and desperately struggling with my sexuality, my mom sent me into a convenience store to get her a Pepsi one night, and said I could get a copy of Mad Magazine if I wanted. I went in and went right to the section that had Mad, but saw to my surprise that someone had placed a copy of a magazine called Adam – which was like a guide to adult movies, and also my name. The magazine spoke to me, and I opened it up, terrified, looking at the pictures of hot naked guys having sex with each other. Suddenly, the store owner saw what I was doing and started yelling at me. I bought the Pepsi, while he berated me for being a bad kid, and went home and bottled up my guilt and excitement over what I’d seen.

A few years later, when I finally worked up the nerve to buy porno on my own, I didn’t dare buy actual gay porn, but Hustler because it often featured cocks in the straight sex spreads. But this ad, with the star, perfect – not overly muscled, alluring, oily, with the kind of sarong see through bed sheet type wrap, gripping his hard cock – the kind of hardness that happens when you are at your most excited in the beginning of a sexual encounter, completely thrilled me. I used to jerk off to this picture all the time… [it] still gives me the same thrill as it did when I was a teenager.

Below, Adam talks about his new film “Jackpot.”. Join us and give what you can to get this made. In this economy, and with the collapse of the DVD market, gay-themed films are harder and harder to finance. Like any community, we need to pull together and support each other if we’re going to get our stories told. Plus he’s cute and he’ll probably masturbate you if you ask nice. That should count for something.
