THE BOYS IN BLUE
Phil Andros aka Sam Steward
Perineum Press, 1984. Samuel Steward, also known as Phil Andros, Phil Sparrow, and many other pseudonyms, was a poet, novelist, and university professor who left the world of academia to became a tattoo artist and pornographer. Throughout his life he kept extensive secret diaries, journals and statistics of his sex life. He lived most of his adult life in Chicago, where he tattooed sailor-trainees from the US Navy’s Great Lakes Naval Training Station (as well as gang members and street people) out of a tattoo parlor on South State Street. He later moved to the San Francisco Bay area, where he spent the late 1960s as the official tattoo artist of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang. Samuel Steward penned a series of gay pulp novels under the name Phil Andros. The novels didn’t get a proper release until the second edition, under the Perineum Press imprint. Any Phil Andros fan knows that this particular hustler has a thing for cops, especially if they’re young, broad-shouldered, handsome, bossy, and over six-feet tall. But who would have thought that Phil would become a cop? His adventures, once he dons the uniform, include some S/M moonlighting, a cop-napping and finally, a flight out of town.
