So my latest book – Hot Rods – a parody of a vintage gay p*rn magazine shot by @Timtareco and @dpfbrooklyn – is finally released! And what better time to bring back these types of magazines than during a global pandemic?!? At least that’s what my marketing team told me jk I don’t have a marketing team. Featuring feathered hair, mustaches, speedos, un-manscaped torsos, striped athletic socks – and of course – terribly written erotic stories. You can buy it directly on my website, as no other major retailer would carry this filth. Link in bio. Also available at FIG in Cherry Grove or The General Store in FIP.
Writer/model/funny man Greg Scarnici’s latest book Hot Rods offers audiences a titillating parody of those dime store gay porn magazines from yesteryear.
Set on Fire Island, the book features feathered hair, bushy mustaches, tight-fitting speedos, un-manscaped torsos, striped athletic socks and, of course, terribly written erotic stories.
In a statement to Queerty, Scarnici says:
I wanted to make a parody of a vintage gay porn magazine from the ’70s ever since I inherited a collection of used porn on Fire Island about ten years ago. I just found them so over-stylized. It was as if they put more effort into the design of the book than the actual photography. The photos all seemed so casual–as if they just found two vagrants on the beach and were like, “Hey, you wanna make $50?” I also loved the truly terrible stories and felt the whole genre would be fun to satire. Then, the whole project came together magically last summer. Ah, Summer 2019, when it was still safe to have fake sex with a bunch of your performer friends all over Fire Island before this nightmare of a year changed all that.
