    Award-winning adult film actor and director John Leslie Nuzzo, who appeared in more than 300 movies during porn's so-called Golden Age in the 1970s and 80s, has died, his friends said Thursday. He was 65.

    John Leslie was the first porn actor I ever saw in a movie. Always loved his movies. He was so hot. Loved watching him fuck. It's sad he's gone.

    I thought he was good-looking and wished his cock was just a little bigger.

    It might not have been the biggest cock, but it was perfect...

    He was one of the pioneers of porn, and to a certain extent wrote the rules regarding male performers. He did everything from 8mm "smokers" to top-shelf high-end mainstream porn, back when it was still shown in theaters. I always thought that his work in Talk Dirty To Me showed genuine talents as an actor. It's also very rare that a male performer in a straight film is considered the star, which again speaks to his charisma, unlike John Holmes whose only claim to fame was his enormous peen.

    He was always much more than his dick, which, as discussed above, was modest, especially by today's standards. Instead, his appeal was based on charisma and his talent as an actor. I've always been a big fan of vintage, Golden Age porn, at least in part because it reminds me to my youth. Many years ago I rented one of his films shot in the mid-70s (I cannot recall the title) in which, while billed as straight (ie: no bi), he demands and receives a blowjob from a male servant (chauffeur or butler: it's hazy). Despite his having been completely over-shot, seeing that made me throw a rod nearly to the TV; it took me totally off-guard.

    I'd love to see him getting blown by a guy! I hope you can remember what movie that was.

    I also agree with you that he was a decent actor. I wonder if he ever tried to make it in regular films. While he wouldn't have been a leading man, he probably would have been a decent character actor.

    He was one of the first porn actors I saw in that era when hardcore was just beginning to be the standard. I thought he had a great bod and cock, but what I remember most was that crazy look in his eyes and his dirty talk...I think that playful, non-romantic sex should be like that! There haven't been many in gay porn like him, except maybe Jeff Stryker.
