I wanted to get laid. I needed personal contact.

by Tim Evanson
Scott OHara was not a model citizen for Sunday School. He was a sex performer (i.e., porn star), poet, writer, and sex activist who died of AIDS. Tim Evanson wrote in his obituary, Although a diminutive man (he was only 53), OHaras 9 erection, boyish body, and huge smile made him popular with fans. After being diagnosed with AIDS, he moved from California to Wisconsin, where he published Steam, which Evanson described as a quarterly, scholarly journal dedicated to discussions about public sex.
The following is taken from remarks made by OHara at a press conference in 1994 commemorating the Stonewall riots, as quoted in Evansons obituary.
When I was 12 and 13 years old I would have joined NAMBLA in a minute, because I knew I was gay and I wanted to go out and get laid, not just read The Gay Mystique all my life; I needed personal contact.
