My First Porn Crush: Daniel Nardicio on Brian Buzzini

Posted July 29, 2011 7:55 AM by with 10 comments

Your first porn star is like your first kiss. It’s hot enough that you never forget it, and innocent enough that it doesn’t come with an STD. I remember stealing a look at a shirtless Geraldo Rivera (I know, I know) in Playgirl, and rubbing one out to the International Male catalog in my grandparent’s upstairs bathroom. I guess it’s not surprising then, that when I asked nightlife impresario and go-go charmer Daniel Nardicio to tell us his first porn crush, he’d picked a guy who did both: Brian Buzzini.

More Buzzini after the jump …

“I had always been fascinated by [Buzzini],” Nardicio told us. “I saw pictures of him in legit modeling catalogs in my teens and was just obsessed by how insanely attractive, athletic, and elegantly sexy he was. Imagine my surprise when i came across his [Man of the Year] Playgirl spread in 1986. I was just floored that there was my sex idol, but now he was buck naked and what I had been envisioning for years was even better in real life!”

Later, Nardicio met Buzzini in real life when he became VP of the magazine in 2009. “One day Brian popped into my head and so, since I had a reason to, I reached out to him to pose again. The editors seemed underwhelmed by this idea, but I managed to forge a sweet gushing acquaintanceship with my idol, and much to my pleasure he had aged so well that it gave me hope that one could indeed become better with age.” Based on the pick below, we couldn’t agree more.

While Nardicio — “the Willy Wonka of Gay New York,” according to the Village Voice — became a household name while at Playgirl (he was the one that convinced Levi Johnston to bare his hockey stick), but says his choice of Buzzini had nothing do with his one-time role at the magazine. In fact, Nardicio’s now handling even bigger stars — this week, he appeared on Logo’s A-List and on August 27, he’s throwing an amazing party on Fire Island with Sandra Bernhard and Peaches. Granted, I’d probably ditch all of it for a night with Papa Buzzini. Ideally with Nardicio in tow …

    I loved him too…we must be the same age…I stole this from Waldenbooks in the mall and jacked off for hours just thinking if I got to SEE him in person let alone what we could do together…

    Never expected to read an article that included references to Geraldo Rivera, Willy Wonka, and something called Peaches. What happened to Ethel Merman and Speaker Bohner?

    Never heard of him but fuck he is gorgeous… then and now!! Can I suggest starting a weekly friday (or any other day) whatever happened to edition ?? So many of our faves have either retired or just slipped through the cracks and it would be cool to see where they have went off to.

    Brian had my attention for a while back in the late 90’s amidst my discovery of the Bel Ami models. He’s aged very gracefully and looks damn handsome with the gray mixed into his facial hair.
