Dick and Friend


Dick Stark (left) and an unknown fellow student from Columbia U. posed here 
in the shower in their jockstraps.  There is a memorable Champion series 
of these two plus several others that I probably ought to post as its own series.

    1. The pictures have made the rounds, and I posted them on my old tumblr. Moving in these circles, it would be hard not to have encountered them at some point, lol.

  2. This is a great series! Can't believe he got those Ivy League boys to pose!

    2. Andrew, Walter Kundzicz played upon very basic male psychology which is that very fit, bright young men - of any sexual orientation - simply love to take their clothes off and strut their stuff. The higher up the social scale, the easier it is because in childhood, they haven't absorbed the traditional prudery of the lower classes. This is but one of several photographs in this shoot. Walter Kundzicz didn't need to encourage them, because it clearly turned into a spontaneous testosteronefest, which I dare say he knew it would.

    3. Also, upper classes get away with a lot more than the lesser classes, at least in respect to our laws. It's all due to their ability to get far better legal counsel and better connections to the legal system i.e., the judge is a college chum. The unequal treatment i.e., you're well off, that cocaine you have means you're a victim of addiction so counseling and rehab with the court's blessings. You're poor, a worthless druggie to be taken off the street and put in prison, no mercy from the court. Drug dealing, when you're rich it's a misunderstanding, when you're of lesser means 10 years in the Federal slammer! Not to mention legal immunity for out of control, killer cops. Many of whom plant evidence on innocent people and destroy their lives. Corrupt judges who in cahoots with local officials at city and county level have been caught stealing land and property from their very owners. So much for so-called justice. - Rj/IE

  3. As the story goes, Walter Kundzicz suggested to Dick Stark that he ought to pose with his teammates and apparently they all jumped at the opportunity. Dick Stark never posed full frontal, but Walter Kundzicz put him in a pair of sheer Nylon briefs - very popular at the time - which left little to the imagination.

  4. I've seen photos from that series and others featuring Dick Stark solo. Mr. Stark is a really good looking guy as his fellow student pictured here. I'm glad that they responded so enthusiastically to Walter Kundzicz's request to be photographed.

    1. Dick Stark did quite a bit of work moving forward, but I don't think the other students did.

  5. Surprised that Columbia University did not know about this series at the time, being that Universities are so caught up in their reputations and public image.
    Their students posing for a gay pornographer (as he would be viewed at the time) and no one saying anything, Kundzicz beat a bullet. - Rj/IE

    1. Two things. They weren't completely naked. And who was going to go to the Dean of Men and say, "Look, I found these students in my beefcake magazine."?
