Knocking up the teenage daughter of America’s favorite former 1/2 term governor and revered historian will get you on the cover of America’s favorite magazine with pictures of penises, Playgirl, and you don’t even have to show your penis. But, apparently, being a gay porn legend with a penis that you’re actually willing to show will not.
That’s if you believe the story in a letter that Jeff Stryker wrote to Playgirl’s Daniel Nardicio (sent by Jeff Stryker to somehow obtained by Michael Musto), which chronicles the sad, fat, anti-gay porn rejection that Stryker says he experienced after he tried to land a spread in the magazine. If you think it’s crazy that someone would go to this much trouble to be in a print publication (which hasn’t actually been sent to the printer since last November) in 2011, you don’t know the crazy that is Jeff Stryker, who last made news when he complained about a noisy nightclub that allegedly prevented him from finishing his memoir.
Here’s Jeff Stryker complaining about Playgirl:
After a couple of months, Larry got me the message thru Rick that ‘you thought I was fat from seeing recent pictures’. What recent pictures, I asked Rick?, I haven’t allowed myself to be photographed for years. So I ran upstairs, put the camera timer on and posed with my dog. Just to establish, sure I wasn’t tan, I hadn’t been working out, but I sure as hell wasn’t fat ;-)
The word then from Larry was ‘they want you to come and do a test shoot’. I thought that strange because I can have that arranged and done here, and I told them I could do that. I have shot 34 movie titles that I own, produced, directed and distributed worldwide, shot hundreds of layouts in years past, etc. So, after a few months of delay and hearing nothing from Larry (or Rick regarding Larry), I thought I’d go ahead and set up a shoot…
Then Larry said Playgirl isn’t interested because Jeff has been in gay porn and that wasnt the image Playgirl wanted. Without even seeing the pictures or hearing the angle of the story! Hhhmmmm, I thought, Hustler was also very homophobic but I not only had been in their magazine layouts 3 times…but I had also sold them 2 layouts of myself and Jamie Summers and one of myself and Flame (porn girl) after they had told me they don’t buy layouts.
Yeah, well, Playgirl has featured countless gay porn stars in both their print and online editions, including Trevor Knight, Derrek Diamond, Shane Frost, Jeremy Bilding, Cory Koons, Jayden Grey, Blu Kennedy, Reese Rideout, and about 1000 others, so either Jeff Stryker is lying or “Larry” is lying. Or, both of them are lying and Playgirl just got some free, advance press on their upcoming Jeff Stryker issue.
