Gay Porn Memories: Kent Larson, Tall Drink O’ Water

By Shawn Baker


Sometimes it’s easy to forget
that not every gay porn star is a gay-for-pay, trick-beating enfant terrible who thinks he’s doing the world a favor by whipping it out and uses up all of his lifetime comebacks by the time he hits thirty.

Some guys project a, well, sweetness, and are remembered fondly for it.

Such is the case with the strapping, corn-fed, tall drink of water named Kent Larson.

Sexy-ass Kent’s porn tenure lasted a comparatively brief two years from around 2003 to 2005, but despite his abbreviated turn, he burned bright. Even outside of gay porn’s diminutive height standard, Kent was a massive 6’2” of looooooong-torsoed brawn who filled every inch of the screen. Neither a fireplug or a lanky beanpole, he had a nicely-proportioned build — broad shoulders, narrow waist, high-sitting ass, and curvaceous legs — that made sure he appealed to every audience with a liking for specific body zones.

Still, above all, it was Kent’s face — rugged but not hard, macho but not aggressively butch, warm without being goofy — that really set him apart. It’s hard to believe that a guy that towering could play passive and malleable so adeptly, but boy did he handle well. Best of all was the doe-eyed sensitivity he could convey with his eyes. How many porn models can leave you with an impression of “Please don’t hurt me. I may be big, but I have feelings too”?

Kent reportedly worked in some fashion for the telecommunications industry before a porn star acquaintance served as his entre into the biz, and given his expertise in mounting big poles — witness his magnificent ass riding Collin O’Neal’s prick in Screw — that’s not hard to picture. It didn’t take long for top line studios like Falcon, Titan, All Worlds, Hot House, and MSR to snatch him up, and he chose his projects well, opting to stick with high-end productions that employed him to excellent effect.

Riders finds him playing a flip-flopping, leather-clad biker pig, while Mount Jack memorably casts him as a park ranger whose co-star has to actually stand on his toes in order to kiss him. He’s a central figure in the gym-set six-wayer from Ghetto, and proving again that he’s great at working well with others, he ably essays an American tourist visiting Mexico who gets worked over in a bar by a group of lusty locals in Gored.

Olé!

Figuring he’d already won the Grabby for Best Newcomer by the time he scored a second win for Best Supporting Actor thanks to his grasp-for-leverage-and-take-it-like-a-man table-turner showstopper in 2005′s Dangerous Liasions, Kent opted to go out on a high note, seeking cooler climes elsewhere.

We can only hope a lucky somebody is benefiting big from that decision.

    Wow…total studmuffin. I looked around to see what became of him; turns out he quit porn after meeting the man of his dreams and deciding to be monogamous, at least according to comments supposedly made by him (how much can you trust stuff on the ‘net anyway?). He said he was going back to school and didn’t regret his porn career but also doesn’t regret leaving as it wasn’t him. He came across as smart and, yes, sensitive, a genuinely nice guy, and I can’t help but wish him well, the sexy bastard.

    Kent, on the chance you read this, congrats on finding your life partner and living life on your own terms. Too many of these stories don’t end well. Nice to know that once in a while they do. Be happy, amigo!!

    I am SO glad this isn’t an obit. He was so hot. And sexy.

    I know there are going to be a lot of skeptics out there that will not believe that this is really Kent Larson, but it is. Yes, it is true I found the love of my life and it has been going strong for 6 years now. I live in Las vegas, and have been since I left porn. I did in fact go back to school. I originally went back to become a Personal Trainer, but decided against it. I ended up getting my BA and am currently working on my Masters. Although life has been great since I have left the life of porn, I must say I miss the rush I got when doing it. I met some AMAZING people, but unfortunately I have lost contact with most of them. I just wanted to say that I truly appreciate all the kind words that you all have written here, and also on other blogs.

    I am so happy to hear that Kent Larson has been moving on since he left the industry. I was going through my collections and saw one my Kent’s movie before and suddenly it brought back a lot of memories as I used to be a big fan! Actually, I am dreaming to find someone like him to be my life partner- a masculine man with sweet and nice personality. After so many years, I am still looking and almost gave up until now to read his above message, not matter it’s true or not. What inspires me is one never gives up until he finds his goal and dream. And, life must move on! Thank you, Kent! JJ

    Kent, I was so happy to learn that you have been continuing your education since leaving the adult entertainment industry and that you have found happiness outside of the business. I had read that you were working as a personal trainer. Is that true? If not, what have you been doing to earn a living since exiting adult films>

    Kent, I am an asian top and I think your scene with Brandon Lee is my ultimate fantasy.
