    David Ashfield was one of my very, very favorites. (Although it's interesting to read that he "bottomed" early on, as he'd asserted in interviews, even long after his career had ended, that he never did so, either publicly or privately, because he just didn't like it… But then we've all heard that before).

    Apparently, he's from Tucson and was desperate to get out (personally, I love Tucson, but I guess it's different if you grew up there) and, of course, he's a Libra, as so many good sex actors are.

    The thing Ashfield had going for him, despite his semi-twinky '80s looks (and in addition to his endowment) was a nice, very non-'80s kind of grinning, leering, in-the-moment sexuality on screen which porn stars almost never have (or they exaggerate it foolishly).

    To me, Ashfield and Jon King seemed an ideal porn coupling. (They did a scene together, but I've not caught it).

    And he's still alive!

    I agree with you anon, was an awesome star, I interviewed him ~ 2000 and a real nice guy. Still looking for some of his videos not in print. If anybody has more info, let me know!

    Oh, how did the interview go? What did he say?

    For now, a few interesting things he said:

    Locker Room fever was his 1st film

    Never was paid per film, only $150.00 per day

    Got into the business by going to "Numbers" which moved from it's original location to a swanky spot on Santa Monica Blvd in Weho

    I am posting requests everywhere possible for David Ashfield to make just a brief appearance. It is wonderful that he is still alive and I hope he is happy wherever he is. I am just about his age and have had more than a thousand-I am serious-sexual encounters and I am also alive and healthy.I do not regret all those moments but am thankful that I never contracted Hiv.

    Does David Ashfield have a personal website? I have always been in lust with him LOL

    Ashfield’s cock, for me, is the most beautiful one to ever grace a porn film: a thick, broad-topped shaft crowned with that heart-stoppingly majestic mushroom head. His volcanic orgasms were simply incredible. And what a sweet guy – a natural on screen who just plain loved being rock-hard erect and having lots and lots of sex. He is my all-time favorite; I’d give my eye teeth to give him a blow-job at his present age.

    Wish I knew where he was, now. We briefly dated in the 80s. He was a real sweetheart.

      I don’t know if you’re for real or not. But I wouldn’t be surprised if he was, indeed, a sweetheart… Something about his demeanor or screen — unselfconscious, and totally “into” it without pretense or affectation.

      Funny how few porn stars can pull that off, as it were.

      I am like 99% sure that I knew “David” in 1978 when we were both at The University of Hartford in Hartford,CT. He was really a very friendly guy. I left the UH in 79. I wish I had stayed in contact with him.

    David is my all-time favorite male porn actor. Sexy body, for sure, but cute at the same time. If I saw him in public, would be proud to reach out and shake his hand. I would love to see that grin again! Be well, David, wherever you are. Thanks for making so many people horny….and happy too!!

    One of my all time favorites of him starring in was Spring Break, what a wonderful film! I was surprised to find out he was born in 1960, myself ’62. to many people posting that they seem surprised that he is still alive. Oh well being in that kind of business I quess it does make one stop and wonder, me, I’m still kicking and kicking myself in the ass that ALL of my good tapes that I collected through the years are no longer with me, someone decided they needed them more than me, in other words I WAS RIPPED FOR ALL OF MY GOOD STUFF, THAT SUCKED BIG TIME!!

    I agree David has a magnificent cock that I would suck this second!!!!!!

    The scene in pizza boys where David tops Grant Fagan is the hottest scene ever made!!!!

    I came many a time wishing myself in Grant’s place!!!!!!
