One of porn's biggest, ephemeral mysteries is what the hell happens to pornstars after they retire. Even in the heavily monitored world of Google and Social Media, they just...disappear! Now, I want to know, desperately, whatever happened to the great Steve Hammond, porn deity of the '80s and early '90s? As the first pornstar who made my jaw drop and my dick rise as a wee college kid renting Falcon films on VHS, and has since made me ravenously obsessed with flaxen blonds and golden pubes, and has continuously fulfilled my fantasies better than any pornstar within the last 15 years, I need to know: What became of him?
Steve Hammond remains the most enigmatic of the great gay megastars. We know Jack Wrangler went on to marry songstress Margaret Whiting, and has passed on to film porn for the angels. We know Rex Chandler started doing some live theatre and got married to a woman. Jeff Stryker is always popping up in recent news, and gay porn bloggers still follow Ryan Idol like a hawk.
But what of Steve Hammond?
Steve Hammond: The Body
He's the classic hunk of Western Society: 6-feet tall, hunky, Nordic, blond, naturally muscular and undeniably masculine. A classically chiseled face with a strong jaw and plump, succulent lips. Don't forget those sparkling blue eyes. Nearly hairless, he's only got wisps of the lightest blond in the most erotic of places: his pubes, in the middle of his chest, in his pits. He's does the paradoxical of exuding angelic prettiness with devilishly raw masculinity. He's as magnificent as the sun. As sandy as the beach. As eye-catching as gold. Oh my god...he's even got us waxing cheesy poetics!
Steve Hammond: The Career
Much has been written about Steve's career, which means little has, because he only did a small handful of films, especially when compared to the dozens and dozens of scenes required from today's stars. His most well known films are Falcon's "," "," "," and his famous stunt bottoming scene with Jeff Stryker in "." If you're a porn newbie, or just never got around to watching these films, stop reading immediately, grab your bottle of Wet, and start downloading!
He even appeared in Playgirl in 1988 under the name Darren Culmar. Our main photo above is from that glorious spread, which you can see in full .
Steve Hammond: The Performer
The He-man was a strict top, except for "Styker Force," where someone else stunt bottomed for him. He relentlessly claimed he was straight, which never occurred to us back then, but makes total sense in a world with Cody Cummings. (In the second photo above, there's clearly nudie gals in the magazine on the sofa.) Steve would kiss guys, but rarely sucked dick, never rimmed, and always was being serviced. The hell he'd get away with being so sexually aloof today. But back then, and in our memories, he was the consummate angel top. Unlike Miss Cummings, however, Steve didn't just lay back for service. He made passionate love to his scene partners as if nothing in the world existed except them, their bodies, and their rock hard cocks.
Steve Hammond: My Fantasy
Falcon's was my introduction to Steve Hammond. This romantic tale of broken hearts and mended souls starts out with Steve taking a shower so beautifully that it was directed by God Almighty Himself. My young body tingled at the fleeting glimpses of this Adonis' impossible physique through the steamed up shower door. I nearly melted as his meaty, smooth ass pressed up against the glass. As he steps out, the first glimpse is a doting close-up of his 9-inch semi-hard cock bouncing below a pillow of the most dazzlingly blond pubic hair mine eyes had ever seen.
As he dries up, the camera makes love to his body...and I was, have been, still am hopelessly, helplessly, heart-stoppingly hooked.
Steve Hammond: What Happened?
Then after a fleeting cameo as a fleeing personal trainer in the 1988 film "Miracle Mile" (opposite Anthony Edwards), Steve vanished into the secretive Never Never Land of retired pornstars, never to be heard from again. Did he get married and have kids? Did he eventually come out and settle down with some lucky man? Is he on Facebook? Did he die?
Although we're deadly curious, would this be a case of the Monkey's Paw? We have such vivid memories of Steve as he was back then, do we really want to see him now, over 20 years since these photos, surely well into his 50s?
Hell yes. Yes, we do.
So, does anyone out there know, whatever happened to Steve Hammond?
