FULL SERVICE: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars
Reviewed by Graeme Aitken
Eighty-eight year old Scotty Bowers swings Hollywood’s closet door wide open in his very candid new memoir which details his trysts with various Hollywood film stars. In 1946, young Scotty already had a long history of accepting money for sex when he took a job at a gas station on Hollywood Boulevard. Walter Pidgeon was the first Hollywood actor to spot Scotty and whisk him home for a three-way. Word quickly circulated about Scotty’s charms and availability, and also his hunky Marine buddies that liked hanging out at the gas station. Scotty found himself in high demand and also began setting up his pals on sex dates. For those who wanted a quickie, there was a trailer in a vacant lot out the back and also a motel run by a queen across the street. Although Scotty claims he preferred to have sex with women, he certainly had sex with a lot of men − and a lot of famous men, including Cole Porter, George Cukor, Spencer Tracy, Cary Grant and King Edward VIII. This salacious memoir was published early last year and created quite a sensation. The cheaper paperback format was recently released.
