or the Stag
Born 1951 in Chicago
Softcore and hardcore actor (from 1974).
Chippendales dancer (1979).
Publisher of the adult magazines Angel, Heat and Hot Slut Orgies(1979).
His first effort as a director, 'The Adventures of Buttman'(1989) is considered by many to be the most seminal work in the genre since 'Deep Throat', and
likely the first true 'gonzo pornography' work.
John Stagliano contracted the HIV virus in 1997 from having unprotected anal sex with a Brazilian transsexual in Rio de Janeiro.
I would like to point out that this was shortly after John's girlfriend Krysti Lynn's demise.
He has so far(2001) managed to keep the virus under control and will probably star in an all-HIV-positive porn movie.
