California Cock

I once owned this magazine in my college days, having bought it at the used book store where I acquired my early smut collection. I was struck at the time, as I still am, by how it's both artistic and pornographic. Unlike many adults models of the era, these lads really look like they were both spontaneous and having a good time.

I also remember being struck at how this magazine suggested straight-seeming college students were out there somwehre who liked fucking men. With time, I would find some of those students, but I think when I bought this, I was still in the dark. It was one of the first, if not the first, explicitly gay porn magazines in my collection.

The publication also confirmed for me that, in moving to California, I had made the right decision. I applied to college in the Golden State without ever actually having been here. My very first visit was the day I arrived to start my freshman year. The magazine was like a brochure from the Southern California Hedonism Bureau, subliminially saying "look at what you can do out here." There was definitely truth in that advertising.

If you'd like to download a free folder with scans of the entire magazine, be sure to click here.

    I might make that first picture my new screen saver. There's something timeless about it.

    Guys really liked to wear their hair long and free back then--but enough about their pubes.

    Oh bother. Once again, I'm going to have to identify the hotties and the movie this magazine is from, since you never do. It's "Pacific Coast Highway" directed by William Higgins and released in 1981. The curly blond is Scott Anderson. The tall dark brunette with the sun glasses, is Jack Burke (Anderson and Burke were an item). And the short brunette is Jeff Hunter. Until next time, and I know they'll be one. Tsk-tsk!

    I usually don't ID the models because I don't know who they are.
