As alluded to in another thread, my first "Gay crush" was for the very beautiful Ricky Nelson in his late teens. I must have been around 11 - 13 or so and really didn't exactly understand what had taken place. I may not have even experienced my first orgasm at the time. All I know was that I found Ricky Nelson's eyes, face, kissable lips, and his masculine presence most alluring, but I never told anyone about it until today.

So, something about my visual attraction to Ricky, though not fully understood, told me this might not be socially acceptable in the late 1950's-60's. As beautiful as he was then, I never used him in my sexual fantasies, although now I wonder where exactly was my limited sexual thoughts directed, fantasy wise. Such waisted and ill-spent energy of youth!

In the Fall of 1961 I guess, I was too soon overwhelmed by the beautiful presence of a young Richard Chamberlain in his TV series as "Dr. Kildare". He was too much for me to hold silently inside. So like any self-respecting teenager, I had to "pester my mother" until I finally got a white "Dr. Kildare shirt", so that life could resume back to normal again. Even without all the upgrades, my gaydar as a 13 year old was pretty accurate in honing on people with a similar persuasion, although it was just a few years ago that RC finally admitted after decades of speculation that he was Gay, afterall.

As is typical when operating without a license in a highly enriched testosterone universe, my initial crush for Ricky Nelson had to make way for a much more mature man that Richard Chamberlain represented, capable of dealing with the sophistication of a recently turned-13 teenager with my own paper route and loads of cash to shower on my object of affection.

I probably imagined that Rock-n-Roll was only a passing fad, but that Dr. K with all his degrees was here to stay! I guess you could say I was a little superficial back then!LOL


Sincerely crushed and brokenhearted TWICE at a very early age,


Stimpy

Stimpy, I was actually even younger than you when I can remember television celebrities being hot. I was around seven or eight, and I really liked looking at Bob Barker on "Truth or Consequences". (I was mocked the last time I mentioned him here on the forum, but hey I was only seven or eight years old. Give me a break. :thumbup:)

At around the same age, I became a big Superman fan because of George Reeves. I'm not sure who came first, so I will call them co-winners of my first celebrity crush. But how can I leave out Tony Dow, who played Wally Cleaver, Beaver's older brother on Leave It To Beaver?

Da-yem, Mr. Rag, SIR, you are asking me to THINK, (even though it is a 'good' think)....on a FRIDAY NIGHT????? I'm gonna have to get back to you!
 
Bob Barker had more staying power than the rest

Dearest Mikeyank,

The way that I look at it, if no one mocked me for listing Liberace as a 1950's TV role model, then surely no body has any reason for mocking you having a pre-teen crush on Bob Barker. For sure, Bob B. was certainly a good looking, healthy type of man's man with definite sex appeal, not exactly the same can be said for Liberace. My main interest in Liberace as an impressionable 6-year old was his blinding speed of his fingers at the keyboard and, at the time, Liberace was more discrete in the mid-1950's with his grand piano, a tux, a candelabra, and a large diamond ring. None of the other crap he became so addicted to later on in his career ever appealed to me with the outrageous costumes that far exceeded Elton John in their flamboyance.

Anyway, while I would never miss a Superman TV program, I think I secretly had a hint of a crush on Jimmy Olsen, his goofy and naive young assistant. George Reeves did not have the most gifted of wardrobe people back then. His tights were so loose that they were made to be sexually ambilivant, I guess, and looked almost like PJ' bottoms minus the feet sown in. I just remembered when George Reeves died in 1959 due to an undetermined suicide or murder attempt and my mother sat down with me to try and explain what had happened to him. I just couldn't imagine at 11 how anything bad could ever happening to Superman. Another Jimmy I was slightly sweet on back then was Jimmy the adult Mouseketeer Leader on the Micky Mouse Club. He too died in 1964 shortly after leaving MMC.

When it came to "Leave it to Beaver", Beaver's big brother was good looking and just what most boys would want for an older brother that was a "regular kinda guy". Concerning "Tony Dow", I always thought he was a totally cool dude. I loved everyone except the character Eddie Haskell on "Leave it to Beaver".

Wow... Mid 70s for me and I always chuckle that an "older" Boy Scout in my troop has his way with me. I was VERY willing. His name was Roland, blonde hair, blue eyes and will forever be my first crush. The first Star crush was Robert Redford. "The Way We Were" Haven't thought about any of that in a long time. Thank you!
 
Why beat around the bushes...they may be full of posion ivy!

WOW, that Ricky Nelson was totally cute.

Dear Lubetube,

Surely, as you are much younger than me, you had some special someone you had your first gay crush on. As cute as Ricky Nelson was back then, surely you have had the good fortune to have a crush on someone just beyond your grasp: a teacher, a celebrity, or even a UPS delivery man (wearing those sexy shorts, of course).

This thread was meant to be for fun, to all members of all ages. Surely "Gay crushes" are not a thing of the past, are they? I sincerely hope not! In my perspective it is an essential part of growing up, just like getting loaded up with testosterone in your early teens and peeking out before your 20th birthday. I would think it is universal.

While mentioning Lubetube, this doesn't mean that only he should attempt to answer this. And, certainly, Lubetube is not under any obligation whatever to answer my question. I repeat, this appeal is meant in fun and for all forumites whatever age!


Sincerely,


Stimpy

How funny! I just loved all the other backstreet boys.:001_tt2:
 
I believe in these Angels...

I've been giving this a whole lot of thought and I guess I'd have to say that I had a crush on all three of Charlie's Angels. They were all three such uniquely beautiful women, together they made the perfect woman. I watched the show all the time and my girlfriends and I would play Charlie's Angels on the playground in elementary school, darting out from behind trees, our finger guns drawn. I always had to play the Kate Jackson part because she wasn't as pretty as the others and neither Beth or Amy thought she was worthy of emulating. I liked that she was so smart and practical. Qualities I saw in myself then as well as now. I thought Jaclyn Smith was the prettiest Angel, but that Farrah Faucet... even I could appreciate why the boys all loved her so much.

My first gay crush was boring. In high school, I had a dream about a girl in one of my classes and then got the oh-so-confusing crush.

But my most important and emotionally deep gay crush... Zooey Deschanel. Yum.
 
my first crush goes way back to Tommy Rettig on Lassie. I thought of him as the All- American boy. I was shocked when he got married i his teens and in his twenties appeared on tv shows glorifying the wonders of hard drugs - something unheard of on television at the time. Poor Tommy did not have a happy life and died quite young.

Dear Scoop27,

His DOB was Dec, 1941 and he died of natural causes on Feb. 15, 1996. He first appeared on Lassie in 1954, every one fell in love with his beautiful eyes and he maintained that look even though he had obviously grown some by 1958 when a younger replacement filled in for him. He has appeared in several movies prior to being on Lassie.

After appearing on stage with Mary Martin in "Annie Get Your Gun" for 22 months, Tommy was offered more stage roles, including "Peter Pan" and "The Member of the Wedding," the latter play made famous by Brandon de Wilde. His strong-willed mother, however, decided Tommy should go for the movies. Ironically, Tommy won the boy role on "Lassie" after de Wilde turned it down.

Was Marilyn Monroe's youngest date ever when he escorted her to the premiere of "River of No Return" in 1954. He was a central character in this movie. (Movie poster listed below)

TV folklore has it that when the producers had narrowed the casting down to three boy juveniles for the part of Lassie's young master, they allowed Lassie herself to make the final decision. Supposely the dog walked straight over to Tommy and affectionately nuzzled the boy, thus winning him the role.

More than anything else, due to his shortness in height (5' 4"), his adult career never panned out.

Mr. Rettig was the first boy who tagged after Lassie during the famous collie's 20 years on the CBS television network. An already established child star, he was chosen from over 500 other boys to play the 11 year old midwestern farm boy, Jeff Miller, when "Lassie" (1954) premiered on September 12, 1954. He stayed with the series until 1958. He made his stage debut at age 6 in the touring company of "Annie Get Your Gun", with Mary Martin. His screen debut was at age 9 and he made 17 films. His most memorable screen performance was as the boy with the vivid imagination in The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. (1953). Following "Lassie" (1954) came a troubled life filled with failure to land adult roles, arrests and convictions for growing marijuana and importing cocaine, bankruptcy, divorce, and a string of jobs including photographer, tool salesman, computer programmer, and health club manager. Mr. Rettig was also a long time advocate for the legalization of marijuana.

When he first appeared on Lassie in 1954, he won the hearts of fans across the nation and with his dreamy and poetic eyes was greatly missed afterwards when the role was given to a younger replacement without his undeniable charm. The pictures do not adequately capture his "dreamy and poetic eyes" as they appeared in the series. People spoke in hushed tones about his "eyes" years after he left television.

Thanks for your contribution!

Zooey Deschanel

But my most important and emotionally deep gay crush... Zooey Deschanel. Yum.

Dear awill24,

I have dug up this information on Zooey Deschanel.

Zooey Deschanel was born in 1980 into a showbiz family. Her father, Caleb Deschanel is an Academy Award-nominated cinematographer (perhaps most notably for The Passion of the Christ (2004)) and her mother, Mary Jo Deschanel (née Weir) is an actress who starred in "Twin Peaks" (1990). Driven from an early age to become a successful actress, Zooey got her big break aged 17 playing a model in TV sitcom "Veronica's Closet" (1997). She got her first film role the following year in Mumford (1999), which prompted her to quit university to pursue acting full-time. Mostly thanks to a role in Cameron Crowe's popular biopic, Almost Famous (2000), Zooey's rise to fame has been steadily increasing as the 21st century wears on. Her distinctive acting style found her critical acclaim in 2003 when she was voted Best Actress at the Mar Del Plata Film Festival for her role in David Gordon Green's All the Real Girls (2003). She also gained a Best Female Lead nomination (for All the Real Girls (2003)) at the following year's Independent Spirit Awards, but lost out to Charlize Theron.

Zooey is often compared to golden era Hollywood starlets and is also a talented singer. She has said in interviews that she believes her singing ability was pivotal in gaining the role of Jovie in Elf (2003). She also sang (and acted) in the Disney-produced musical, Once Upon a Mattress (2005) (TV).

Thanks for your contribution to this thread.

Sincerely,


Stimpy

This question brings back great memories! Older forumites will remember my story of summer camp, and the shenanigans which occurred, as related in another thread. I would say that my older cousin, who attended camp with me was my first gay crush. It was his steady support and willingness to teach me how to pleasure him (and other boys) that made me worship him. Even though separated by age, he treated me as an equal, probably the first person to do so. Add to that his great looks, and budding teenage body, and I was hooked! Thanks for the memories!
