I know, I know, I know….. not the best set of pics – which is too bad – leather and Paul Barresi should go together like…. um, leather and Paul Barresi –
“Honestly, BJ! How many of these silly photos of Paul, do you have?”
I’ve gathered what I can of Paul in leather, and well, he rarely goes very deep – cap (Colt’s Gallery 13, below), jacket (posing with Target’s BRAND), a vest ( Lusty) cap/vest (COLT 1976 calendar) – except in Falconhead II (which, well, birdhead may have had something to do with the plot – but don’t ask me what that was – but didn’t do a lot for me erotically), and then a pic I found via HIM International, which they credit as begin from Drummer. THAT’s the ticket – final pic below – chaps, gloves, cap, vest – The search continues for more!

Don’t worry, BJ. I’m obsessed with Paul Baressi also.
In full leather, (that last pic!) SO HOT. Actually all of these are hot, even the ones I’ve already seen.
Terrific post. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of the Baressi! Although recently in a photo-sharing Google Group I belong to there was a somewhat tiresome discussion of the Natl Enquirer article and the whole thing with John Travolta (from long ago). I mean, I guess I just don’t care about who he fucked or didn’t fuck IRL. I just like looking at him!
yes! the last pic I think is the best – I almost edited my original choices to have it first, but the “no good pics in leather” theme wouldn’t work – those top pics from a leather catalogue, or fashion mag – sheesh!
Yeah, some are a little goofy, but that side fur on his belly in the 4th pic? Sluuuurp.
Why do I always want to lick hair? Then once I do it I’m like, “well now there’s hair in my mouth eww.” Then I do it again.
let’s hear it for SIDE FUR!
I wonder if he dressed this way for John Travolta? LOL!
love the photo set with Paul and Tony Romano; hot and sweet with Paul embracing Tony and Tony tasting Paul’s cock. wish they would have shown more since Tony seemed to be the bottom in most of his work
I think a lot of Paul’s “couple” work was “simulated” – no actual penetration, just open mouths and nearby butts
agree but on can only imagine!
Whoa, BJ! Leave it you, to present a post, which I can’t resist commenting on!
This is endlessly fascinating, on so many levels! And not just because, there’s a reference to moi!
I sometimes think I can write a book, on “Mr.” Barresi’s legacy and appeal! I know this won’t be the last time! Every time you present him, the comment section gets crowded instantly. You previously disputed, if whether a porn performer or model; can genuinely be considered a “star”.
I point to him, as an unqualified “YES!” Now, I agree he wasn’t what I would term a “Porn Divo”. But his following and recognition can’t be denied. How many others remain anonymous?
Female impressionist, Charles Pierce; said he got into his show-biz specialty, to become a “star”. Which he then acknowledged was fitting; since literally a “star”, is just a big ball of gas! LOL!
You know my ego, BJ! I love being mentioned or referred to. In this regard, I’m as shameless as, well…Paul Barresi! LOL!
“… leather and Paul Barresi should go together like…um, leather and Paul Barresi-“
I totally agree! But I wonder if you, like me, share a love/hate dynamic with Paul. You present him at both his leather best, and at his leather worst!
Oy, BJ – the first four pictures! As I’ve said before, these are pathetic! Even Paul himself, agrees with me! (Is it really him? Can you verify?) : 0
#4 – I think this picture is downright sadistic! That dog collar that looks like a diamond, choker necklace! I think you just forfeited your chance, for Barresi to ever reply to you again! LOL!
I’m not into S & M, but no one else took better leather pictures, than Jim French – WICKED! I used to own quite a number of his leather calendars. They have a genuine, sinister beauty, grandeur and mysteriousness – awesome!
The two Colt pictures posted here; show Barresi at his decadent best – eerie!
On Atkol Forums, Paul tried to claim that he was the first cover model, for Mandate – posted here from November 1975. Most everyone knows; it was Bill Cable, for the April 1975 issue – beautiful!
I do acknowledge though; that the Target Studio leather photos, were also powerful! Evidently, Lou Thomas aka Jon Target, was actually into S & M.
I have to disagree somewhat, with your assessment of the last photo from HIM International. Yes, I agree in a large way, it’s very flattering. But I still think it’s over-done, or over- the-top.
I think you have to be careful with leather photos. The trick is to be theatrical, but not gaudy or garish – macho drag. Sometimes, leather queens go too far – S & M Vegas style!
Jim French knew the value of restraint – less is more. He seldom packed his images, with too many props or artifice. He didn’t over-stylize.
I think this picture would have been more effective, without the gloves. I would also show, less rope ties, binding the chaps.
Less is more – I wish the publicity “Falconhead II” color photo; of him descending the stairs, was also modified. I really think it could have been more stunning and mysterious!
Get rid of the silly mask/helmet – bird brain! He actually has grandeur here! Just show the leather straps, boots, and cape! I don’t think I’ve ever seen him, in such great, physical shape – those legs, thighs, and hips!
Your posts are like a party! That’s why I never attend, empty handed. I come bearing gifts.
I’ve been waiting to share this color, Colt photo of Paul, sitting on a motorcycle!
It’s a variation of his Mandate cover – fabulous! Less is more – all he’s wearing is a jacket, cap, and maybe, boots! I love the sun-freckles on his back! Jim French knew when to “cool it”, for a hot photo – masterful!
Glad you’re remembering, BJ!
B-A-R-R-E-S-I, two “R’s”, one “S”! Don’t forget also, Johnny-My Pet-Llama!
Thanks for the shout-out, BJ, my sweet!
