Unrequited lust

I know, you find it hard to believe I'd even post something about lust. "What? Jess having lustful thoughts? Impossible. He's as pure as the driven snow!" :)

Okay, so what causes me to share this particular object of my lust? Well, I just got a combo VCR/DVD burner. So I was burning an old porn tape to DVD (I mean, I would have been, if I ever owned porn, which I don't--nope, never even saw any). ;) It's a noble cause, because I'm preserving the image of one of the most beautiful men ever to walk to earth (before my videotape is completely shot). Smitten? Me? Yeah, maybe a bit.

He went by "Lance." His real name was David Alan Reis. Whatever his name, he wasn't in a huge number of porn films, but he was quite notable. Aside from meeting certain key porn requirements (size, build, etc.), he was quite simply gorgeous.

I couldn't find a shot of him online that really did him justice. Actually, there are very few photos of him around, since he only made a handful of films and that was a couple of decades ago. So here's a shot, for those of you who don't know who he is...

Sadly, he's no longer among the living. Yes, you know why. The same horrible fate that befell many gay men in the 80s and 90s (and still does, though, thankfully, the odds are better now). But his memory lives on--and he keeps giving some of us pleasure, if only in fantasies.

I always wondered what happened to him.

oh yeah, I had quite a few vids of him at one time. I think I donated them to Salvation Army along with the other duffle bags of porn, when I decided VCR's were archaic.

When I came out of the closet in 1981, I met him in Los Angeles. I was 18 at the time and will never forget him. He was truly handsome. I have been trying to find information about him and there is hardly anything. To bad I didn't trying harder to get to know him. I am haunted. Darin
