Venus as a Boy
Johnny Olson, 5'8", 160#, was one of BG Enterprise's prettiest muscle-boy wrestlers. With Davy De Angelo (aka Clayton Titus) as his partner in the ring, he faced no less a challenge than the tag team of Kid Leopard and Kid Vicious. Solo, he fought Jungle Stud and Corby Banning. It is his fight against Banning that's my favorite. Olson had a torso of prepubescent silkiness, yet solid, on strong hairy legs that offset his boyish face and the bounce of his hair. In some of the posed stills, Olson has the offhand grace and stateliness of Botticelli's Venus (but as retouched by Tom of Finland), perfectly at ease while surfing on a half-shell. In Young Musclestuds 5, Banning outweighed and outfought him, but Olson put up a good (though futile) defense. If his godlike physique were not enough, Olson knew how to groan, gag, gurgle, and grunt. He was a model cute jobber, one from whom some of the new mat eaters might learn a thing or two.
