If it’s spring, it’s time for the magazine biz to roll out their “SEX!!!” issues. Let’s start with Vogue‘s Hommes International, whose “Erotic” issue has a sizzling B&W shot of Tony Ward on the cover (click here for our recent story on him) and features an article called “Ex-Porn Stars” by Philippe Azoury (one of our European-minded Constant Readers sent along scans of the article). The subhead reads, “Idolised by sex-hobbyists, despised by Puritans, hardcore has its galaxy of stars whose careers wax and wane. A close-up of some recent standout sex stars.” There are two “recent” gay stars listed: Peter Berlin and Jeff Stryker! I’m not arguing with their legendary status, but would perhaps quibble with the French definition of “recent”… The rest of the list are straight porn icons: Linda Lovelace, Traci Lords, Savannah, Rocco Siffredi, et. al. (plus John Holmes, but his gay porn work is not mentioned). Click here for their summation of Mr. Stryker…

Here is the mag’s quirky description of His Largeness: “Jeff Stryker, the ’80s gay hardcore star, enjoys a privilege shared by no other man: he can go into any sex shop and admire dozens of exact replicas of his erect penis”—yeesh, about 250 male porn actors would dispute that—”…When you think of the incredible success of sex toys, you realise that Jeff Stryker is no longer just the pumped-up honcho of gay stag movies: he unwittingly provides a public service. This of course raises the question as to whether this now-settled paterfamilias is still his own man…”

    I know Stryker is richer than Croesus, but what does he do with himself these days? (I didn’t mean THAT.)

    Stryker is definitely not rich. He lives in Los Angeles, raises his teenage son, and gets by with this-and-that, residuals and the like.

    Wow. An article I read about him, admittedly quite a number of years ago, stressed how rich he had gotten from producing his own porn.

    For a split second I thought the cover was Joey Stefano, but was glad it was Tony Ward.

    Like Will, I too thought Jeff Stryker (Charles Casper Peyton) age 45 was rich. I believed he sued Health Devices Inc., for over a million dollars for a bootleg dildo and also Kulak’s Woodshed Music Club who was next door to his office. If he looks after his son now, who is 18 years old, I thought he had his own company for DVDs,calendars & greeting cards? [I believe he is part Scottish, English & German]!
