Believe me – when I first saw these pictures of Rock Pamplin they very nearly sent me over the edge!
I was a young man then – in my teens – who’d long known that he’s gay. It sure wasn’t looking at these images that made me so (as some crazy opponents of porn would have it), however, seeing these images made me realise what kind of man I wanted. I guess, I’d long known that as well, subconsciously anyway, but having had nowhere to go with my sexuality, I had no way of finding out, of trying out.
It was also only much later that I found out that Rock Pamplin went on to collaborate with Rip COLT, though as fas as I know, it was only for pictures rather than movies.
This is one of my (admittedly numerous) favourite pictorials of all time, and believe it or not – it still has the same effect on me that it did when I was … young …
