if he didn't have a pot to piss in, i would understand a career change,
he should just accept he's infamous instead of trying to go legit famous
Expect he'll be on that stupid ITV jungle programme next, if he isn't already, along with all the other has beens desperate for TV exposure and "celeb" status.

To be honest I do not think he is all that famouse.

By that even on the show many people had no idea who he is.

Althou to be honest he has changed.

He seems to have lost that 80's look he seemed to have had for years.

And he looked old.

I am not sure how old he is but I bet he looks older than he is.

In fact he did not look well.

His problem is that he has not done mainstream. Ie ron jerramy is well known as he is on tv all the time. plus ron geramy is larger than life.

I watched it. I like the guy, he seems like an all around nice guy.

He was wanting a role in a soap opera or something similar, no soap opera is going to take an ex porn star on. I could see him working in comedy shows or as a stand up.

i know he's had plenty of aggy along the way mate,
he got done at Heathrow once if i recall
shooting in the multi storey carpark

agreed it took some nuts to shoot anything more than
Razzle shit in those days.. attitudes to porn have changed
dramatically since, particularly since the advent of the web

so yes, the old boys acted as pioneering xxx minesweepers
for the rest of us.. but nevertheless they still laughed all the
way to the bank for a decade pre-web, when physical product
& distribution was King.. seriously doubt many of them would
be driving Ferrari's if they started out in the current climate..

bottom line.. Ben Dover ain't the sharpist knife in the box imo
but nevertheless he still had business acumen and took risks
which defined him as a true old skool porn entrepreneur


i also empathised with a lot of what he said.. particularly when he mentioned
that in private a LOT of people knew him, but would never admit to it in public..
( same reason no fucker i know wants to add me on fucking Facebook LOL )

but whenever he encountered anything remotely intellectual
he dismissed it immediately as "a load of bollocks"
he may be cock-sure, but he sure ain't brain-sure..

guy is packed full of insecurities.. he said it himself
that without his big dick he would probably be struggling..
regards his aspirations for mainstream stardom.. i think he's
just afflicted with a severe case of vanity.. he obviously loves
the limelight..

personally i think he SHOULD typecast himself in mainstream
as the stereotypical cockney gangster / pimp / porno guy
watching him play posh roles was proper cringeworthy..

I know Simon / Lindsay / Steve / Ben on a personal level, and I have a lot of respect for what He's done...

However (AND I COULD WELL BE WRONG) I think that you may be confusing him with Vinny Curran?

He shot a sex in public places vid In the late 90's with Georgette O'Neil, next to the miniature Concorde model they have on the main roundabout outside Heathrow...

But, like I say, I could well be wrong myself

Wasn't that Vince ??????? from Northampton?

Known Lindsay a long time and he wanted out of porn a long time. As Steve Perryman he shot and directed some of the best porn ever. IMO

Actually... I think your right. Vince was the talent... But Im sure Vinny was the one shooting it

I think I know who you mean by Vince, but Im not 100% sure if Im thinking of the right guy... I met a few times in Dudley, Birmingham where he was the talent for a lot of club17 stuff that a guy use to shoot there.

Cant remember his name either, but he was a huge mountain of a man, but very gently spoken...

The mind plays tricks these days LOL

Not dead yet. Came very close to it and it's not over yet. I had cancer in the base of my tongue and the specialists opinion in February was my chances were slim. Today they think I will recover due to my never give in character. I find out if the cancer is gone for sure Wednesday week when I get a CT scan.

The main problems now are linked to not eating since August and very very weak. Have good days and do a little posting on them. Even corrected some pictures last week. Hopefully will be right again by March/April then I will take a holiday and after get back to work.

Wasn't his name Vinny Price, might be wrong on that. He came from Northampton and found some of the rudest girls ever.

Really I cant honestly remember mate. It was the late 90's... I didnt really 'Know' the guy we are talking about... Just met him on multiple occasions.

This is the incident I am thinking of though...

Quote:
Georgette was arrested with Vinnie Curran in Heathrow Airport while making a video in the main car park. The two of them attracted a large audience from a building site on the net car park who cheered. The noise of which attracted the police to investigate resulting in the arrest of herself, Vinnie Curran and Vinnie Curran's father who was acting as the cameraman. She went to court and was ordered to pay a fine and do community service.

Vinnie Curran was the guy. He did the scene for his series of "Sex in Public Places."
