Gary Lee, king of Paso Robles’ porn world

Gary Lee

By DANIEL BLACKBURN

PART ONE: Naughty girls next door

Gary Lee knows there are a lot of wild women in north San Luis Obispo County, and he’s got the pictures to prove it. Thousands of photographs. High-definition video. Many of the women are nude. And most are doing a lot more than just posing.

Lee is the proprietor of 33 websites, most of them pornographic, and one — slobabes.com — features the girls next door. Literally.

It’s one of Lee’s favorite sites, he said, because he uses “all local girls.” For the Reagan-era Paso Robles High School graduate, it’s like giving a little back to your old home town.

His slobabes.com site “has had girls from pretty much every bar and restaurant around, and cashiers, gas station attendants, girls who do labor-type jobs to local real estate agents, nurses from Twin Cities Hospital, tellers at local banks, the daughter of one of our police chiefs, regular wives, girlfriends… you name it,” said Lee.

Lee is his screen name, and it’s the handle by which he is known to those in the porn industry, where his has been a very familiar, ah, face for the past 20 years. Born and raised in Paso Robles, his real last name is recognizable locally, and he prefers, he said, to try to keep separate his online businesses and his local life.

Always a thrill-seeker, Lee was a Navy Seal after high school, returning to the North County to teach skydiving and scuba diving. But after a while, it all became just a job.

“Twenty years ago I just did this stuff (porn) in Los Angeles, and nobody around here knew I did, including family and friends. I’d go down there, make some money, and come back. Now, after bringing slobabes here, everybody kinda knows, especially since we specialize in using local girls.”

Here’s an excerpt from slobabes’ site: “Hot local women getting naked from right here in the San Luis Obispo County area doing porn for all of us to enjoy. These are real girls that you might know from high school. We have Bearcats, Greyhounds, Pirates, Tigers, and Eagles. They might be the girl next door to you, in towns like Paso Robles, San Simeon, Atascadero, Arroyo Grande, Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay, Los Osos, San Miguel, or Cayucos. They might even be from little hick towns like Shandon or Creston.”

Fast approaching fifty, Lee’s longish grey hair is thinning and his body, as he admits, is that of “an ordinary middle-aged Joe.” But what isn’t ordinary is his line of work: “There’s a pretty good chance that I’ll get laid at the office tomorrow.”

He admits there are “lots of guys younger, better-looking, more desirable than me.” But that little reality doesn’t stop this guy. He’s not just a porn producer; he still takes his turn in the trenches.

“I’ve put in my time. I done my share. I’ve done hundreds and hundreds of movies. I’ve been with actresses that if I told you, you probably wouldn’t believe me. I’ve slept with dozens of Playmate models, well-known actresses, rock-n-roll people, who tend to gravitate toward porn people.”

So what is the motivation for women taking off their clothes in front of a camera, and doing the things most people reserve for the privacy of their bedrooms?

“Some girls do it for the money,” Lee said. He pays $50 an hour for models who don’t want to disrobe; $200 an hour for nude shots; and $500 an hour for a sex video. “And some do it for the thrill. There are lots of reasons, really.”

Not everybody on on his websites performs in sex videos, Lee said. “Some have never once even taken their clothes off. I’ve never seen them topless. They pose for car shows, photo shoots and other events. And I treat them all like princesses, because they pay my bills.”

Lee got started in the porn business quite by accident.

“About twenty years ago I was dating a woman in the Los Angeles area who did porn, and one day they let me on the set (which is unheard of today) and I was sitting around reading a magazine and waiting for her to get done.” Here, Lee paused and observes, “I have no jealousy issues whatsoever.” It turned out that the male actor that day “couldn’t perform, so my girlfriend suggested the producers use me, that I wouldn’t have a problem. I didn’t.”

Lee said the producers were impressed: “Wow, they told me, you didn’t get nervous at all. Why be nervous when I was just doing what I was going to be doing that night for free! And that’s kind of how things started. It was just an accident.”

That would never happen today, Lee pointed out, because health rules and laws require that porn industry actors and actresses be checked for sexually transmitted diseases before performing.

“But I started getting call-backs, and then after a while you get to know the people in the other studios.”

Men are both prized and scorned as porn participants, said Lee.

“Men really are just props. Women are the stars, and it’s easy for a woman to be a porn star. If you go to my sites, you don’t go there to see me. You go to see the hot girls. I try to get the girls to bring in their boyfriends, husbands, whomever… someone they are comfortable enough with to do a movie, particularly on their first one.”

And of course, it is the male actor that is the unknown quantity.

“With a man, if he’s nervous and not into it, then things don’t work. It is said that 95 percent of men out there can’t do porn. I hear it all the time: ‘Hey, I’m a good-looking guy, look like a model’… but when the camera rolls…. That’s why in so many of the old (porn) movies there are relatively few male stars, but lots of well-known female actresses.”

One of those male stars is Lee himself. Google his name with “XXX” and more than 600,000 sites featuring him will pop up.

But Lee doesn’t consider himself a star, just a businessman whose work is sex.

“These are real girls that you might know from high school. We have Bearcats, Greyhounds, Pirates, Tigers, and Eagles. They might be the girl next door to you…”


The wording on his website makes it sound like he uses underage females. He lists high school mascots and uses the word “girls” often. He’s appealing to a certain customer who prefers ’em young. Yuck. I assume his employees–the ones he treats as “princesses”–are all over 18, right?


Truly a new low for CCN. I won’t be surprised if TQ returns from her self-imposed exile at the Fibune and comes here to rip up Mr. Blackburn’s sleazy advertisement–er, I mean article.

CAL COAST NEWS, STOP THE PRESSES IMMEDIATELY!!!


“abigchocoholic” is upset with this story, therefore, your First Amendment Rights should to be taken away from you as a news source so that you can placate to this person post haste!


“abigchocoholic’s” morals and ethics have just been so upset that they can’t bear it anymore! Even though it is their choice to come to CCN and read this story, and to reprimand you as they have done, you should respect their wishes at the expense of all of us and your journalism modus operandi! NOT!!!


“abigchocoholic” reminds me of all the hypocritical Christians that post on this forum. Where this faction accepts biblical sexual narratives within the bible that are outright disgusting, and in turn, make this story look like a boy scout picnic, but cry fowl when news sources post the same content. Yes, we know, they’re hypocrites of the first order!


BeenThereDoneThat

I have found over the years if I don’t agree with something on t.v. or the radio, I change the channel. If I see something I don’t agree with in the paper, I turn the page, On the computer click next. A person can tell what the story is going to be about by the headline. So don’t read it.

Gary Lee is Gary Spencer and his companies PlayTime, and California Coin have been around for a very long time. Gary is also responsible for bringing RonJeremy (the sad, washed-up ex-porn star) to the Fair and parading him around the Heritage Foundation room in front of children no less. This man is nothing and always has been. I know his sister very well and she will have nothing to do with him. What a scumbag. Beware everyone, especially our young innocent girls that might fall victim to his photographs or solicitations. I already know of one girl from Templeton a few years back, maybe you know her by her “stage” name…Billie Bales?


Paso_Guy

is this another “write-in” candidate?


Citizen

Yes, he’s running against Picanco for Mayor. He’s the good looking member of the Lee family with sisters Ug Lee and Home Lee.


Ted Slanders

Citizen,


Who is your writer?


PRCCM

I know of a Rodeo Clown in need of a good writer!

Yo Ted. First, take your pill. No, not that one the one that calms you. Then, get both hands on the keyboard because I don’t trust you and I’m getting a bad visual. I’m as interested in hearing about Gary’s biological expectations as I am in hearing about your planned bowel movements for today–which is to say, please keep your biological achievements to yourself.


Now, if Gary crosses some line and they have him on trial or similar, I get it. Potentially losing one’s freedom to be locked up in a cage, like what’s about to happen to that fireman is of public interest. Until then though, keep this non-intellectual garbage on the XXX websites where it belongs.


Ok, now you can resume whatever it was that you were doing–just keep it to yourself, k?


Ted Slanders

SLOBIRD,


Lighten up for Christ’s sake! If you have a problem with sex and the activities that go with it, then keep it to yourself!


You’re okay with the seedy and disgusting activities in this SLO County, but, when it comes to sexual story, you’re not? Go see a Sexual Therapist if you have to and loosen up!


Jealous?


slomike

Kind of reminds one of Murdoch’s sleazy London papers and the short skirts on the Fox news babes. Not to mention Chief Solomon’s sexcapades, ad nauseam. I wonder who funded our little “libertarian” website to begin with.


danika

PP5, it is my belief that I must weigh the aggregate value of CCN, not just an isolated story. For the most part, I have found them to be a worthy resource for important information. Where I do not always agree with their stories, and I find this particular story distasteful, I will continue to support them until I feel they have “jumped the shark” so to speak.


Please remember you would not have the true “Chittygate” info, Kelly Gearhart, Wallace Group, and other valuable information had CCN not existed.


centralcoastcoyote

And how far have those stories gone… Nowhere


pasoparent5

Nowhere, coyote?! Um…last time I checked, Lisa Chitty’s been busy volunteering at her kids’ school and enjoying her new boat. That’s because she’s unemployed–no longer Paso’s Top Cop *HOORAY*


Also Kelly Gearhart was indicted by the Feds…he’s going SOMEWHERE, alright. Probably to prison!


Ted Slanders

“One of those male stars is Lee himself. Google his name with “XXX” and more than 600,000 sites featuring him will pop up.” I am sure there was no pun intended, right?


abigchocoholic

wow, seedy to say the least.


Desperate people. The woman who’s lazy and stupid and sees a way to make money for doing nothing. Ya, we already know there’s lots of those around. Have been throughout time. And the guy who can’t get it for free. Tons of those around too. Forever.


What’s next the article about the successful drug dealer? Maybe then an article about how cool it is to be in a gang?


Ted Slanders

abigchocoholic,


What’s next? How about a story line on Lisa’s sexual antics? Or how about Mason’s brutal and bloody fighting stories? Wait, those have already been done, along with some other sleezy stories!You were all over those threads by reading them, but when it comes to, God forbid, a sexual story, you cry fowl and are not comfortable with it? Poor baby. :(


Your posting says a lot about a problem that you may have. How sad.


If you’re embarrasssed with a story like this, then stick to a Christian News source site that will not allow you see such material! Therefore, you won’t become a hypocrite!


BeenThereDoneThat

Interesting bit here. Most people want to think that some sleeze type or others are watching. They have done studies and say a lot of average people watch. Even more to that point Google the value of the porn industry per year. It runs 10-12 Billion. Hmm someone must be watching.


Even read an article a few years back that Wall St. has taken notice and would like to get in on some of the money but is afraid of the stigma.


danika

I presume you did read the New Times article, front page story telling in lengthy detail how to make meth, including what ingredients are needed, where to buy them locally, and their appx. pricing.


Compared to that NT story, this story is lacking journalistic desparation.
