    Hey all,

    Joey Stefano could be called the "original power bottom"; at the height of his porn star career he really went against the grain by being a loud-and-proud bottom rather than a straight-acting musclehead. An indie-film is currently in production about his life, and I'm curious if anyone happened to know Joey while he was alive? (He died of a drug overdose in 1994.) I'm in the process of writing a feature about his story, stemming from the movie and recent porn star deaths, and I'm interested in hearing the perspective of folks who had interactions with him.

    Or, even if you didn't have any interactions with him, what's your general take?

    He wasn't a coy bottom waiting for someone to ask him to dance - I was more that kind of top.

    He asked me at The Sound Factory. I didn't know who he was at the time but he was cute so I said yes. Paul Lekakis wasn't shy about asking me either.

    There's a book about him called Wonder Bread and Ecstasy. That might be what the movie is based on.

    That book does exist, but the movie was independently researched by a guy named Chad Darnell. You can look up the film, if you want -- it was recently re-titled "X-Rated," and will star Willam Belli, Ryan O'Connor and Missi Pyle, among others. (The role of Joey has yet to be cast, from what I understand.)

    I read that book. It was so sad! It makes you wonder if there are many more porn stars who had similar experiences.
