The Boy Who Would Not Die: An Interview With Doug Probst — And Shawn Mayotte Comments (0)

Doug Probst is someone you might recognize under his professional name — Shawn Mayotte.

As a well-endowed, blond top twink, Mayotte appeared in the 1983 gay-porn classic Hot, High & Horny, whose title adhered to the precept of truth in advertising. He also posed many times for photographer Kurt Deitrick, the man who took over for the legendary shooter Bruce “Bruce of L.A.” Bellas when Bellas died in 1974.

Mayotte never became a true porn star, though he knew many and has lovingly eulogized them online from time to time, because he was making much better money as an A-list escort, a position he achieved not long after being abandoned to the streets by his parents while still a teenager.

The result is a pair of confessionals. First up, available now, is Mayotte: The Musings of a Narcissist, a searing memoir that documents the abuse that challenged him in his early years, and is filled with fascinating remembrances of his clients, albeit some whose names have been changed. Following this no-holds barred autobiography, which is a classic survivor's tale, Probst will publish Shawn Mayotte After Hours: Naked & Unashamed, a coffee-table book filled with his sexiest poses from over the years.

Doug, now a musician, opened up so much in Mayotte, which I've read and recommend, yet generously did so again for Boy Culture's questions. He really is an open book. Two, in fact ...
