Great moments in gay porn #4: 'The Punishment of Gary Wilde'


Gary Wilde was one of the more popular porn stars in the mid-to-late 70s. He made very few movies, but he posed for many nude photo sets that appeared in most of the gay porn magazines of the time. In the years since his heyday, he’s become quite a huge cult figure among porn aficionados. To some, he’s just considered the cutest thing ever. To others, he’s seen as a symbol of queer rebellion, a kind of Che Guevara or one person Baader Meinhof of gay porn. Why? I’m not really sure. (As a side note, I actually knew Gary a little. My first boyfriend Julian was a rich kid who thought being a street prostitute was an interesting thing to do.

Hello Mr. Cooper,
New reader here.
Could you tell me names of some of those 'Indy" publishers that would welcome unsolicited manuscripts? Mine is a racial horror novel set in SF. I so liked the one book of yours I read (Frisk) and was surprised to stumble upon your blog.
