SO SAMUEL COLT’S MOM BUYS A GAY PORN MAGAZINE …
Samuel Colt‘s mom went out on a Saturday night to buy a dildo and came home with a copy of Unzipped. After the jump, the incredibly sweet story of how one mom reacted to seeing her big boy even bigger.
She called me and she was like, “Are you on the cover of a magazine?” I had been voted Man of the Year in Unzipped Magazine that month, so I said, “Yeah … how do you know that?” And so she told me this story: It was a Saturday night, and she had had a date with a guy and he had stood her up. She wanted to entertain herself so she went to the adult bookstore to buy a dildo, and she decided to browse the gay magazines because she said that’s where the hottest guys always were. And there I was on the cover of the magazine.
Samuel’s mom sounds radical, in all honesty. (The story is part of a series of interviews in Salon with porn stars and sex workers about how they come out to their family about their porn lives.) He describes her as a sex-positive hippie who cried while reading his interview. But the interview was in UNZIPPED. WHICH MEANS SHE SAW HIM WITH A BONER. My twelve-year old self is freaking the fuck out. But not so bad I didn’t go looking for the photos:
It’s reasonable to think that this was on the shelves at the time as well, where I think he looks even hotter. No word on her review.
