My first gay crush was actor Kent McCord!
I was 12 years old when I stayed up until 9pm watching "Adam-12" on WNBC in New York.
And that's when I first saw that handsome duo:
Kent McCord as Officer Jim Reed and Martin Milner as Pete Malloy.
I was glued to the screen, and couldn't believe Kent's chiseled perfection and piercing blue eyes!
Martin Milner was good looking too, but I never 'stained the sheets' wet dreaming about him.
It was my mission since then to move to Los Angeles, and in my fantasy, to be 'cuffed' by Officer Reed. He is so handsome and probably isn't even aware of his sex on a stick persona.
I did actually move to LA years later, but I never met Mr. McCord in the 25 years I lived in the Valley. Which is probably a good thing.
He is STILL handsome now as a silver fox.
My fantasies have subsided, but he will always take my breath away. I own 5 seasons of "Adam-12" and will pop in a DVD at least twice a month to relive my first crush.
Wow, a 40 year CRUSH! Who knew?
