As we all know, COLT Studios found some of the most beautiful men in the 1970s and 1980s to grace its magazines and porn videos. Some were muscular, some were bodybuilders. But all were well-endowed, and all were handsome.
However, it’s hard to argue that any were as handsome as John Pruitt. He was perfect from head to toe, and some could argue that he WAS the face of COLT Studios – not only during the time he was active, but for decades after that as well.
In fact, pictures of John Pruitt were some of the first gay porn pictures I ever saw when I was a wee lad.
And I would be surprised if I was alone. But those first images I saw of a naked man stayed with me longer than I thought.
For one, John had a GORGEOUS face. The blue-green eyes, the chiseled features that sit perfectly between masculine and feminine, those cheekbones, and that hair.
Not to mention, John’s impressive muscular figure was amazing, for starters. He was big, but not overly huge and imposing in the way that some bodybuilders of the time could be. His physique was approachable, and seemed like it was for form AND function.
And whether smooth or covered in a light dusting of hair – his look seemed to change ever so slightly periodically – his body was the standard for gay men during the time.
The beautifulness of his cock goes without saying!
And his nipples just seemed to set everything off.
John Pruitt was known for his musculature, but he was an absolute pro at showing off his butt, too.
The front of his body surely was impressive. But the back of his body – his back, and his ass – were equally great. And he was just as much of a pro at showing those off as he was his front.
Pruitt was also like a greek statue, and could hold poses that gave so much movement to each frame.
Interestingly enough, as revered as Pruitt was, he never starred in any hardcore scenes, or did any hardcore work. Most of the work for COLT consisted of him posing and modeling his body – he wasn’t even erect most of the time.
If you can hold the attention of gay men and not even be erect, it says something about your person.
The best thing about John Pruitt? He was successful in and out of gay porn.
Before he starred in porn, he was a champion swimmer for Drury University.
He was also a fitness model and starred in a few fitness tapes.
And though it’s been DECADES since he was COLT’s go-to model, he’s aged gracefully, and is now a high-powered exec at an investment firm, reports QueerClick.
He’s married (to a woman) and was always straight. They have at least one son, who is also an athlete. Maybe he’ll turn porn star like his dad? Let’s all hope.
