“I had never really thought about the size of my cock until I was saddled with the nickname ‘Pony Boy.’”
Born as Andrew “Drew” Okun in Natick, Massachusetts on June 25, 1952, Al Parker was a major star of pre-AIDS gay porn. His definitive “clone” look and act as well as his 9-inch cock,was a highlight of classics including Inches and The Other Side of Aspen.
His first job in California was as a butler at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion. Rip Colt, founder of Colt Studios, discovered Drew and named him “Al Parker”. With Surge Studios, he produced, directed and acted and was integral to that studio’s decision to pioneer condoms in gay porn soon after the onset of AIDS. He died of AIDS on this day (August 17) in 1992. Roger Edmonson’s biography Clone: The Life and Legacy of Al Parker Gay Superstar details his adventures
THE OTHER SIDE OF ASPEN
Director: Colin Myer
Stars: Chad Benson, Casey Donovan, Dick Fisk, Al Parker, Jeff Turk
A popular retro classic, The Other Side of Aspen comes replete with clone-moustached joggers pounding the San Francisco streets in shiny nylon shorts, guys saying “come on buddy, bring it dooooown” to their sex partners and even the occasional moment of camera underwinding. Pubes are bushy, butt cracks are furry and the sex is hippy and equitable. Tops don’t bully their bottoms, bottoms don’t bark orders at their tops, and versatility is the order of the day as a pack of sporty sex pigs fuck and fist each other inside a hokey little Aspen chalet.
