Exclusive: Gay Porn Legend Jeff Stryker Making First Public Appearance In Over 10 Years, “Time To Entertain My People!”

BoardwalkPoster_JeffStryker

After a 10-year hiatus from the adult industry (not counting the time when Playgirl told him he was too fat), gay porn star Jeff Stryker is set to embark on a nationwide tour–a tour that he hopes will reignite his legendary career.

Stryker defined an era and an industry as one of the first (if not the first) major gay porn stars. His enormous catalog of work throughout the 1980′s and 1990′s includes classics like Powertool, The Look, Just You And Me, On The Rocks, and more. In an exclusive interview with The Sword, Stryker reveals where his first appearance will be next month, as well as his thoughts on the state of the gay porn industry: “Is anyone still making movies?”

The Sword: Thanks for taking a few minutes to chat, Jeff. So, why come back to the public now after all these years?
I am coming back to theatrical performances simply to entertain. I spent my life entertaining, and as long as it gives people great pleasure, I enjoy doing it.

Have you been keeping up with the porn industry? What do you think has changed the most?
They don’t build porn stars anymore. Everyone with a camera can be in porn, and most of them are. There are no $100,000+ features made, and they don’t build up porn stars. The day of free porn is here, all over the internet. A production company can’t invest into a star or a feature movie anymore.

Why not?
Because no one will buy it.

Do you keep in touch with any of the people you worked with in the past?
Is anyone still around making movies?

Probably not from your era.
Producers John Travis and cameramen Ross Canyon I still communicate with, but actors…no. [We shot] for what was a moment…. and we filmed it.

After all these years, do you feel pressure to live up to the “legend” title? What does it mean for you?
Being alive helps. I dedicated my life to being Jeff Stryker, an adult male entertainer. People made me what I am by showing their appreciation for my work, whether it be in movies, in appearances, theatrical shows, photographs or art. I have taken a few years for a long deserved break, but now it’s time to take the image and go out to entertain my people more! We will all enjoy it, I assure you. Entertainment is still my life.

Also, I have a few thousand of the limited edition Jeff Stryker action figures left, so grab these collectors items while they last. They are anatomically correct.

What can fans expect to see from you in the coming months?
I have been working on a biography and theatrical shows, and now it’s time to take “A Sophisticated Evening with Jeff Stryker” (my theatrical show, originally written by Bruce Vilanch) on the road. Look for me in magazines and in theaters across America and beyond. In November, look to meet me at Boardwalk in Florida, where I will be meeting and greeting my dear friends.

As my English friends say, Cheers!

    Who’s into that granny porn?

  2. TWEWY says:

    Will.
    Not.
    Say.
    Anything.
    Mean.

    I will ask was he gay?
    I could look it up, but I would prefer a direct answer (almost said straight).

    • EdWoody says:

      I assume not. The total trade thing (do we use that phrase anymore?) and my recollection that he was at least one wife and child point towards straight. But at least he knows where his money is coming from well enough not to state it outright and rub our noses in it, which others have done recently.

      • Gavin says:

        There’s no shame in being “trade” or “gay-for-pay.”

        I am grateful and lucky that a guy as hot, nasty and passionate as Jeff Stryker lent himself to gay sex and gay audiences. I don’t feel entitled to his sexuality or anyone else’s.

        The dude is PACKING and at least he always looks and sounds like he greatly enjoys what he does.

  3. half porco says:

    These 1000s of action figures are gonna be hard to sell!! Good luck with that

  4. Arny says:

    Clearly Fabscout will book anyone.

  5. Robert says:

    I have always had a crush on Jeff Stryker. He looks great!
    Thanks for the interview, I’m glad he’s healthy and coming back. I’ll try to go to florida to finally meet him in person.

  6. Marty says:

    “Theatrical shows”?

    OH DEAR! :(

  7. rocky says:

    Can’t believe you didn’t ask about going back to escorting. Again Zach, just because you’re a blogger doesn’t mean you can’t do smart things.

    • TWEWY says:

      Best fucking comment so far on this post.

      If he asked the interview would have been over as soon as he asked it I’m sure.

      • rocky says:

        that’s why you wait until the end. jeff was probably shocked he wasn’t asked about it. unless zach agreed not to ask which is fucking worse than forgetting. it ends up becoming nothing more than a fucking ad for his “theatre”

  8. jimmy says:

    A list of the sad but funny drivel from above:

    “Enormous Catalog”?? Really, how many “movies” 10,12?
    A porn ‘movie” in the 80′s cost 100K ???
    I’ve taken a few years for a long deserved break………. 20+ is a few?
    Limited edition = a few thousand left – so grab these “collector’s items” while they last. They’ve lasted 20 years or so – expect they’ll be around in 2079. Still in a basement.
    Only 25 VIP tickets available nightly. Good luck with that.
    And my favorite:
    A ‘SOPHISTICATED’ evening with Jeff Stryker – LOL
    Whoever did the photoshop/plastic surgery work obviously only had the doll with which to work. Both faces look like they were pulled before the plastic cooled.
    Note to Jeff: the internet has porn sites that feature old guys – and yes they will pay you.

  9. GayAtheistLH says:

    I always thought he was good looking but far too plastic with regard to his face, body & performance style. He was always overrated to me. The same was true for other 80′s porn stars like Rex Chandler.

    I’m assuming he’s coming back for the money and what he assumes will be some regained fame. Or Some Rogaine fame.

    I agree that something has happened either with his real face or what they’ve done to the photos of his face. But if that’s what his ding dong looks like now them I’m all over that.

  10. DPS says:

    I always hated his dirty talk, and felt it ruined most scenes. By far one of the prettiest cocks ever, in the porn industry.

  11. Denis says:

    He can’t be gay with that hair… 50 can be hot. He just needs to lose (what’s left of) 1987′s haircut. Shave it, grow a beard, and grow up.

  12. Nick says:

    I thought for a moment this was Lyle Wagner from The Carol Burnett Show…same hair from the 80′s but lighter..LOL…This is so tragic!

  13. judgenjury says:

    Glad to see he’s well and Good Luck with the tour. Why shouldn’t he make a go of it everyone and their mother is in a porn flick today and escorting too, hah Oh and guys you’ll get old too one day soon yep that’s a fact if you live long enough, so be a little kinder. Nasty is sooo boring.

  14. Bastardus says:

    Am I the only one thinking “Sunset Boulevard”?

  15. MIke says:

    I wonder how “Tom Steele” is these days.
    http://www.alsgaypornstars.com/tsteele.html
    I remember reading agent Peter Scott’s story that Tom was offered up as the answer to Stryker by competing studios and he was similar in height and look, and in reality was 100% gay.

  16. bam87 says:

    This is fascinating! Of course, someone is going to do an agreed action for a specific amount of capital (the claim that this is an actual motivation or reason for an agent’s action is ridiculous; this is a capitalist economy, labour is not exchanged for nothing). That being stated, I wonder what effect his re-emergence will have on the industry, especially if he reappears in some scenes. Will he spark some sales by actually being able to get people to buy a “movie” as he said? Since porn stars as such don’t exist anymore, and don’t seem likely to be “built” now, maybe the only solution is for past porn stars to come back? I mean his body’s on point, his dick is still a marvel, I’m sure he can still perform, and he’s probably in his late 40′s/early 50′s.

    • Dutch Courage says:

      The effect of his re-emergence will be nill, even if a studio (Next Door Studios?) hires him. Stryker is a thing of the past and the majority of gay porn consumers don’t want to see performers from the past. Maybe some nostalgia queens but thats it. The internet with its weekly deluge of gay porn scenes considerably shortens the shelf life of a gay porn model. Fresh meat is in demand, not old flesh.

  17. Bull says:

    Yes he is a porn “icon”, unlike another unnamed performer regularly given that title. Yes he is straight. Yes he has/had many fans. I don’t remember a negative thing said about his fans or the gay community from him(at least reported anyway). Or his “str8ness” shoved in our faces. And major porn studios did spend a lot of money producing their films and the stars were paid very good salaries. I don’t know the figures, but I know it makes what they earn now a mere pittance.

    No, I didn’t like his performances, but MANY others loved them. He had a huge legion of fans. I had a dear friend who was a rabid fan. He wrote and received correspondence from him or his representatives regularly. Sadly he is no longer with us, but he would be first in line to buy a ticket. I don’t know anything about his work outside of porn. I do remember he did a cameo appearance on a short lived gay soap.

    I would go see him if I had the opportunity.

    • Tom says:

      Thank you Bull – I couldn’t agree more. Not sure where the rabid rush to diminish Jeff Stryker’s importance is coming from (usual bitter cunts I suppose) but he was beautiful with a spectacular body and dick of death and -by porn standards- a good actor. He most certainly is and always will be a porn icon. This is not opinion, it is a fact based on his huge impact and massive popularity in his day. Respect, bitches.

  18. StarScream says:

    ?!?! THAT IS JEFF STRYKER !??!

    Holy jumped-up baldheaded jesus palomino (in grand Gary Busey style)

    DAMN .. (shaking head)

    just .. damn …

  19. davidsask says:

    I have no disrespect of him being an idol and all but damn if you are going to come back; that HIDEOUS hair has to be trimmed to damn near shaved look to make him look better!

  20. Lucky Luke says:

    One way to pay the rent.

  21. half porco says:

    To be honest , he would look like a gnome without his hair . That’s the only thing that can remind you who he is , so I understand why he sticks with it .

  22. Fred says:

    Jeff is famous for other reasons than his hair! Why to focus on it???? JS may come to visit me anytime, I will show him that I am a fan by not talking about his hair, but other assets he has.
    Welcome back Jeff! And this time BE REALLY GAY!

  23. JackNasty says:

    Speaking as one of “his people”, do the “youngsters” really not know who Jeff Stryker is? Really?

    And I agree with Fred, drop the pretense and gay it up now! What the hell do you have to lose?

  24. danico05 says:

    What I always liked about Jeff Stryker was the way he moaned while having sex with a guy… and that sexy voic of his…OH YEAH, SUCK MY BIG JUICY COCK BABY, yeah. I wished he’d come back making movies again, but like the other guys said… he should loosin up his hairdo, and try to be more natural. I’m sure he’d give a great performance with guys like…Marc Dylan, John Magnum, Samuel Colt, young Brent Everett, Jake Genesis, and many others.

  25. trixie says:

    He looks decent for his age. However, he really needs to get a haircut. A closely shaved head, would take about 10 years off.

  26. David Estrada says:

    HOLA, DESDE MEXICO.

    JEFF STRYKER es mi ídolo. Lo amo!!!
    Fue una lástima que se retirara toda una´década. Que bueno que regresa. Espero que esté tan bien como en la foto.
    Ojalá regresara a los videos. Se le extrana…

  27. From Wikipedia:

    “Jeff Stryker (born Charles Casper Peyton[1] on August 21, 1962, in Carmi, Illinois, U.S.) is an American porn star who has starred in bisexual, gay, and straight adult films. He lives in California.”

    Stryker turned 50 this past summer.

  28. Gaybilly #1 says:

    I greatly enjoyed his dirty talking, sexual abilities and his obvious physical assets…until I realized how short he was compared to my 6’1″ frame – and how the filmakers would creatively make him appear taller.
    There’s no reason for him not to make as much money in whatever manner he pleases.
    But I agree with those who would like to see a new hairdoo.

  29. Angelo Ortiz says:

    He is straight and going through a mid life crisis. Lost all his money over bad investments and his whole family left him. messaged his son facebook.com/josephapeyton. Unfortunately, he isn’t gay or following his father’s footsteps. When I asked if I could contact Jeff his son said he has had no contact with him since he was 15 and left home on his own. Probably a lot going on behind the scenes for this reemergence, 20 years why come back? Than to escort after making 100k, ha.

  30. Gregory Pecker says:

    Is there anything Bruce Villanch will NOT do to get his name in a publication or in a video.
