Watch: Revisiting Idol Country


Here's a flashback for some of you. 80's gay adult film icon Ryan Idol made a recent appearance with Chi Chi LaRue at West Hollywood's 'Cocktails with the Stars' on Friday where LaRue discussed one specific "don't" of his erstwhile career.

  2. Ryan looks better than ever! Hope and pray Chi Chi can convince him to return to films!

  3. Chichi's lost weight. She looks good. :)

    I loved Ryan Idol back in the day. Strange, though, how my tastes have changed from the shaved, buff pretty boy to the dirty, hung, everyman.

  4. He was GORGEOUS... and he is very very handsome right now... looks very different... I wish there were more scenes from back then...

  5. It's nice to see porn stars having normal post-film lives, even Ron Jeremy. Hard to say if there are still any "stars" in the industry.

  6. Had to google both...

  7. What a shame Ryan didn’t get to speak because what’s her name was shooting off her big mouth.

  8. Can't stand that skinny person who used to be a portly person who is perpetually at every event known to man.

  9. Wow...back in the day Ryan didn't do a THING for me. But now? Hubba hubba!

  10. What a sad combination of revisionist history and commentary on the porn industry today. No, there are no more "stars" since there is no money left in porn. Pirates have definitely taken their toll. I doubt Idol would accept work today since he probably made ten times what a pornster does presently, and that's not adjusted for inflation. And, of course, there's so much more competition today with some real talent behind the camera, someone like Larry probably couldn't get a job in the industry, let alone make a career out of it. (Yes, Milkman, he's lost weight; that's what gastric bypass and a facelift will do for you.)

  11. I'll always have a special spot for Ryan Idol. The first time I saw him was in BlueBoy magazine when I was a teenager in high school. Then I saw him in person at a fundraising event at Tracks in Washington, DC. Someone paid him $$ to smooch me off. I was beet red and ... happy, I guess.

    But what really surprised me the most is a couple of years AFTER the Tracks incident, I was in Los Angeles during WEHO Gay Pride Festival when Ryan and his wife stumbled upon me and my friend -- Ryan held my arm and said, "Are you the fella from DC?"

    He has a good memory and man, I still lust for Ryan Idol!

  12. Gee. I clicked on that to hear Ryan say something, and all I got was that other hideous creature clucking like a possessed gay chicken. Chi Chi definitely has a losing personality.

  13. @JIM
    Chi Chi is always trying to have herself deified because of her constant preaching about safe sex. Notice no one ever mentions that she has a large financial stake in demonizing barebacking? What a hypocrite.

  14. I still remember seeing Ryan Idol at a club in Denver downtown, right next to the upscale strip club... Industry? Anywho, he was in a full Michael Jackson Military like garb and singing his latest single. It was so super exciting to see a real life porn star up close and personal. He didn't show anything, but in the closeted days, it was still pretty cool.

    He looks good now. Chi Chis is T-H-I-N!

  15. like most of the audience (by the sound of the talking in the background), i was trying my best to ignore the rambling, uninteresting story from the babbling mouth on the left and trying to concentrate on the beauty on the right

  16. Didn't Ryan injure his head or something a few years back? I vaguely remember he'd had an accident of some sort and couldn't afford to pay the hospital bill at the time; I actually sent in a few bucks to whomever was organizing the charitable collection--I figured it was the least I could do for all the pleasure he'd given me over the years. :) Glad he looks better and still has that gorgeous smile.

    My opinion of Chi Chi has dropped somewhat since I read "Wonder Bread and Ecstasy," the bio of Joey Stefano (a.k.a. Nick). He was an unspeakably beautiful man who really got used by a lot of people (including, supposedly, LaRue), then tossed aside; drugs did the rest. It's all so sad. (Is beauty really a curse?)

  17. Ryan Idol looks so happy to be there. Not. At the moment when the gaseous porn producer reaches over to hold his hand, he looked like a snake had just slithered out in front of him.

  19. Chi Chi is a revolting mess, which is pretty much how he's made his living. If possible, even more hideous than the Chi Chi drag. His manner, his mind set (the story he tells, etc.), everything about him is like old queens from 50 years ago. I really can't stand the old cow.
