Does anyone know his real life sexual orientation/identity?

Also, in real life was he a top or a bottom or versatile?

And why did he make so few movies?

Any interviews and video footage of him aside from the pornos?

R5, he was GAY. But came from a uber-religious family who taught him to feel extreme guilt/shame over his orientation. So he married, thinking that would 'cure' him. It didn't.

He killed himself because he couldn't deal w/the shame and guilt.

He had a 'life partner' at the time of his death.

"From Atlanta's Southern Voice newspaper:

Rommel E. Hunt, 31, who has appeared in a number of gay-oriented adult films, died Oct. 23 in Atlanta after a two-year struggle with mental illness, according to his life partner, Jim Brams. The DeKalb County coroner has ruled the death a suicide.

Under the stage name "Steve Fox," Hunt acted in seven adult films and starred in four, Brams said. His credits include "Secret Shore Leave," "Flashpoint," "Compulsion" and "Buttbusters."

Hunt was born July 4, 1965, in Alabaster, Ala., and moved to Atlanta at age 6 with his family. A graduate of Druid Hills High School, he attended Oxford College of Emory University.

A memorial service was held Oct. 26, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported. In addition to Brams, Hunt is survived by his parents, a sister and a brother.

by Anonymousreply 11September 25, 2022 7:50 PM

That clearly didn't help R11.

Here's a quote from an older thread:

"Steve Fox / Rommel Hunt was 'seriously mentally ill' because he a beautiful gay man living in the south, who was pushed by his family (and their religion) to believe that being gay was a mental illness and that getting engaged and then married would turn him straight. As a result he got into seriously hard drugs, which only made things worse."

(33) & (35): We don't know of Mrs. Hunt's complete original family ethnicity. Just because she was born in The Ukraine, does not specifically & automatically mean that she was completely a Ukrainian ethnically speaking. The "Kazimiera Karoliszyn" portion of her full name could be of Ukrainian origin but perhaps of another eastern European background. TBH the 2 names sound and look more Polish than anything else to me. It is a fact that there were many ethnic Germans living in scattered areas of the USSR, and particular so in the agricultural Ukraine area. They were encouraged by the Czarist government back in the 1800's and early 1900's to come to Russia and farm as part of an effort by the Russian government to improve the agricultural methods of the country and to also boost agricultural output. Given that she survived WWII in Germany itself, many details related to that that would be interesting to know, such as when did her family leave the Ukraine for Germany and did they leave willingly or were they forced out a any point in time, are not told in that obit and thus unknown to us here.

On a note related specifically to Steve Fox, I recall seeing an escort ad run by him for a brief period of time in the late 1990's that appeared in the classifieds portion of one of the local Atlanta gay papers.

Given the background info posted by (10) earlier and the photo timeline provided by (75), I've just realized that in 1981-1983 I lived 3 miles from his Druid Hills High School facility and perhaps closer than that to his home.

If I'd crossed paths with Rommel circa 1982 at the N. Decatur Road Kroger near us, he'd had certainly turned my head but I would have left him alone. For me, a 28 year old at the time, a high school kid was jail bait! But goddess, what a cutie! FYI: Looks-wise, boy did he ever take after his beautiful mother! I posted here yesterday but did not include his mother's photo that I dug up once her obit info was posted here.

There used to be a gay porn chat message board that was attached to a big porn outlet store in New Jersey. The store went out of business as people stopped buying videos and watched/downloaded porn on their home computers. The website/discussion board then disappeared from the internet. They had wonderful “ask me anything’” q&a with porn stars from back in the day.

One sad post was a confessional from an older man who started as an escort client but became deeply involved with Rommel aka Steve Hunt. Steve tried to present himself as G4P but was a tormented mentally ill self~hating gay man. This poor obsessed older man (maybe the partner Jim Brams cited in the obituary posted above) really went through hell with him and even got close to his family.

Posters on the message board tried to counsel him to let go and that Rommel/Steve probably was just using him as addicts and hustlers do. But the poor man was still in love with him. These threads on the porn message boards could turn into sad gay mesosphere operas or vicious cat fights. Wish I could remember the name of the site and if it’s archived somewhere online.

If this is same JB who was life partner of Steve Fox then Ms. Hunt must have mellowed or something over the years after her son's death. Accepting enough of her son's life partner to welcome him into family so to speak, teach him math and employment as her driver.

The Atkol Forums were archived on Internet Archive and I found the page on Steve Fox. The man who claims to have been his partner is John Butler, or that is his screen name. Not sure he is Jim Brams or not. John Butler (Posted 6/5/1998 9:30:00 PM) Several of you over the last couple of months have been good enough to share with me some memories of your experiences with Steve Fox. They haven’t always been good ones—Jackson Phillips, for instance, found him very difficult, if not downright unpleasant to work with—but I appreciate hearing about those too. For the two years before his death, I was in a relationship with Rommel Hunt ("Steve Fox")—the first six months an extraordinarily exciting, happy, and gratifying time. That period of happiness came to a crashing end with his mental breakdown, and from that point on I never knew where we stood, although when I would from time to time talk with him, he assured me things were not over between us—right up until two days before he committed suicide. Of course he was disturbed, and I really don’t know what the situation was. Still, it was a very important time for me, and Rommel was (next to the partner with whom I had shared twenty-four wonderful years before I ever met Rommel) the most important man in my life. I am hungry for any stories anyone else might be able to share with me—good OR bad. Perhaps e-mail would be a way to share these stories more completely and frankly. I know John Rutherford (who directed Rommel in, I think, three or four videos) said in a MANSHOTS interview that he was very professional, and good to work with, and VERY businesslike (this last remark was stated in such a way that it wasn’t really complimentary). And Devyn Foster (who was in a three-way scene with him in "Foul Play") in another MANSHOTS interview was not complimentary about Rommel’s behavior during the session, and Devyn also referred to his businesslike way—but clearly in a derogatory sense. I would greatly appreciate anything any of you out there might tell me about your personal experiences with "Steve Fox."

Long informative screed from "John Butler" ohn Butler (Posted 6/6/1998 11:05:00 PM) Dear Guys (AtlantaGuy, tboy, LoveMuscleToo, and any other inerested parties): I’m glad to share certain things about Steve Fox with you, but only up to a point, I fear. After watching the first movie I saw him in (Compulsion), I was blown away with his looks, his body, his demeanor. The next one I saw (Buttbusters) confirmed my first impression—this was the most perfectly beautiful human being I had ever seen, whether in person or in some film medium. In March of 1993 my partner died, after we had been ‘married’ happily for exactly twenty-four years. I was bereft, of course, and felt that my sexual life was over (I was 62 years old), even though Mike had expressed a desire that I find someone else after he died. Exactly two and a half years later, in September of 1995, I answered a solicitation to join a "Steve Fox Fan Club", hoping to perhaps get an autograph, maybe talk to him—who knows? Soon I drove to Atlanta (about two hours away) and met with Steve Fox in a hotel room for the kind of meeting I thought never to have again, with the man I thought the most beautiful in the world! Our first meeting was exciting for me—something of a dream come true—but it was also perfunctory and somewhat disappointing. What amazed me about Steve Fox was how intelligent he was, how sweet he was, and how very much I LIKED him; I wasn’t prepared for that! Within two weeks I met him at his house, he was Rommel Hunt (and was always that to me after that, never "Steve Fox"), and we didn’t have sex, we MADE LOVE, and spent four or five hours doing it. For the next six months, I made love with Rommel at least once a week (and sometimes twice), he stopped (as far as I know) escorting, and we planned a life together (admittedly I was much older—only a few months younger than his dad—but he said that was no problem for him). To interrupt for a moment: After our first meeting, I was in love with Rommel Hunt, and "Steve Fox" didn’t enter the picture again. This thread is in the "Porn Stars" category, and I’m glad to answer questions about "Steve Fox," and some of the impersonal mechanics of his life, his personality, and his death I see no reason to withhold. But I loved Rommel Hunt (as I still love him in memory), and I hope you will understand when I say that my personal relationship with Rommel is just that—personal. I wrote a fairly lengthy book, entitled "Fellations, Penetrations and Impalements," which is a sexual autobiography—begun as a means of trying to sort out the tragedy of my partner’s death, and the apparent collapse of my new-found love with Rommel. I decided, as I wrote, that I needed to go back to the beginning of my sexual life, and by the time I was a week or so into the writing, it had become something of a celebration of gay sex. It turned out to be an exhaustive sexual history, completely frank and detailed, and even upbeat. I don’t know if I’ll find a publisher for it—it is EXTREMELY frank, sexually, and there are few publishers (no mainstream ones) that would consider it. Still, maybe some day—and if it ever does appear, you can read every detail of my experiences with Rommel there, since (needless to say) the names Rommel Hunt and Steve Fox do not appear in the book (but any savvy porn fan with a double-digit-or-better I.Q. can figure out who he is). If any of you guys know any appropriate publishers . . . well, you get the idea!

by Anonymousreply 96September 30, 2022 12:09 PM

More dish from "John Butler"

To answer some specific questions. In spite of what anyone says or has heard, Steve Fox was not straight. From the first time we talked he assured me he was gay, and that the woman he lived with was a friend with whom he shared no sexual experiences or even attraction. It was only after his breakdown I began to hear about his supposed heterosexuality, and learned that the woman he lived with was also his partner! He was most probably bisexual. I know that no pictures of nude women were ever in evidence, and no external stimuli of any kind were ever needed for our enthusiastic, completely two-sided, uninhibited, and exhaustive love-making. In February of 1966 he agreed to marry me, and told me he was my life partner. In March, after several days of frustrating inability to contact him for any reasonable conversation by telephone (we had until that time talked every day for at least a while by phone), he called to tell me that it was all over between us. The bitterness and pain I experienced were set aside a month or so later when I saw him again (the last time I was to see him in person) and learned he had just been released from a mental hospital—diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic. From that point on it was a painful series of admissions and releases from the hospital for him, and for me a confusing and frustrating series of conversations with him where he told me he still wanted us to be partners. Finally, two days before he shot himself, after apparently escaping from the mental hospital,he telephoned me, and we talked about getting together. The day after his suicide, his mother called to tell me about the tragedy, and when the memorial service was to be. He was cremated, and his family does not plan to inter his ashes. The "life-partner" mentioned in several obituaries was not me! Rommel had told me of a former lover, and I ASSUME he had at one time told that person they were partners. I cannot be sure, of course, but I THINK that it had been over for some time, and the man mentioned in the obituaries (whom I do not know) felt he was still his partner. Rommel moved with his family from Alabama to Atlanta when he was six years old, and always lived there after that. How much his family knew about "Steve Fox" is questionable; I know they knew some, because we talked about it. WHAT they thought of it—aside from disapproving of his life style (but not disapproving of his homosexuality or bisexuality)—I do not know, and I have not pressed them to learn. They are fine people, who have suffered an intensely painful loss, and I would do nothing to sharpen their distress. As for what brought about his mental breakdown, I don’t know. Paranoid schizophrenia is one of the most terrible mental diseases known, and it IS a disease. I doubt anyone knows exactly how it is contracted. I feel steroids may have played a part in its manifestation; I don’t know that he took steroids—but his body was incredible (more awe-inspiring in person than one could even suspect from his videos, just as his beauty was even more awesome in person), and he admitted to me that he had been "on drugs," but I never learned the details. Whether his confusion of sexual orientation was contributory to his breakdown, or was instead symptomatic of it, is something else I don’t know. Sadly—so very sadly—this magnificent man is gone, and many questions will never be answered, and we will never see him on film or in magazines again.

Someone called Daniel who knew Rommel Hunt but wasn't an infatuated admirer:

danielpur22 (Posted 7/7/1998 12:56:00 PM) i attended high school with rommel hunt (aka steve fox) in atlanta. he moved to atlanta at a very young age and his family still lives there. later i lived in the same subdivision with him in decatur, ga. i always found him to be a very complex individual living many different lives. it is no wonder that he suffered the fate he did. his parents are very learned, professional people both having earned doctorate degrees. he was very intelligent and always seemed to have his mind on money. he and i never had a sexual relationship as i was only interested in him as a "friend." i had always known about his female roommate. she is a stripper and does many other things to earn money. he had described their relationship as both sexual and non-sexual. he was prone to tell many different versions of the same story. i found her to be very nice and very much in love with him. i believe that he was a bisexual. he talked a great deal about women and always seemed to notice them. he was a male stripper too,having performed for many, many women. he could at times be very nice and also be very rude to people. i dont feel that he was ever very comfortable with himself. he always seemed to want to be able to prove to his parents that he was a "success." many people have told me that he was "kept" by an older man. but i know for a fact that after his death he had a great deal of real estate in HIS name only. in the year 1992 he showed me his investment account statement and his balance at that time was over $500,000 in annuities. that was not bad for a 26 year old who never had a job. he does not come from a wealthy family. they are upper middle class. i have a phd in psychology and i was very surprised to hear of his death. i was also very saddened. his was worst kind of mental illness. it eventually robs its victim of all sanity. i hope that he now has found peace.

John Butler again (he sounds a bit, well odd)

John Butler (Posted 7/23/1998 6:48:00 PM) Itsa: I personally was disappointed in JOHNNY HORMONE. I didn't like much about it, but had looked forward to it for the Steve Fox segment, of course. And even that was disapponting, even though Steve looked--as always--like the most beautiful man alive. BUT, he only bottoms in this scene (and he had finally demonstrated his ability as a top in his last two major films--"All-American" and "Fox's Lair"), and here even his bottoming is pretty tame. He does his usual fine job of taking it up the ass, and his sucking is a little more convincing than it is in a few of his other videos--and he gets a nice load. Still, it's just one short scene, and it's a disappointing finale to his porn career. He made eight videos. 1. Secret Shore Leave (about 1990, I think) 2. Compulsion (Falcon, 1991?) 3. Buttbusters (Falcon, 1991?) 4. Foul Play (Falcon, 1993?) 5. Flashpoint (Falcon, 1993?) 6. All-American (a Matt Sterling video--1994?) 7. Fox's Lair (Studio 2000, 1995) 8. Johnny Hormone (1998--but actually filme in the spring of 1995, oproiginally intended for inclusoion in a Ryan Idol film that became a Ken Ryker film--Matinee Idol) He has the white area left by his bathing suit in his first three films, but that gloriously sexy tan line appears first in Foul Play, and he wore it ever after that. Sorry I don't know exact production dates.

Jim Brams is around 74 today. John Butler would be 91, as he says he was 62 when he met Fox in 1993. He may have been telling each of them that they were his partner.

I don’t get the impression that his family were traditional Southern holy rollers. They were quite educated and cosmopolitan. Someone wrote that they didn’t have a problem with his sexuality, but with his porn, drugs, escorting lifestyle.

That's complete BS R83. There was no "legit media" reporting about the finances of dead gay porn whores in 1997. How would they even know about his estate? Were you imagining some public reading of his will? Laughable.

by Anonymousreply 105September 30, 2022 7:54 PM

Well last wills and testaments are public documents, I'll give poster that. Presuming decedent had one it would be on file somewhere.

Considering "Steve Fox" had a life partner it would have been foolish and quite risky for him not to have some sort of will and or trust set up. As (sadly) far too many gays who died in 1980's, 1990's, before or since without such arrangements decedent's estate will pass to next of kin as outlined by local laws.

To wit parents of "Steve Fox" would have laid claim to any and everything that legally belong to their son, kicking the partner out to the curb unless he could prove clear title.

[quote] I wrote a fairly lengthy book, entitled "Fellations, Penetrations and Impalements," which is a sexual autobiography—begun as a means of trying to sort out the tragedy of my partner’s death, and the apparent collapse of my new-found love with Rommel. I decided, as I wrote, that I needed to go back to the beginning of my sexual life, and by the time I was a week or so into the writing, it had become something of a celebration of gay sex. It turned out to be an exhaustive sexual history, completely frank and detailed, and even upbeat. I don’t know if I’ll find a publisher for it—it is EXTREMELY frank, sexually, and there are few publishers (no mainstream ones) that would consider it. Still, maybe some day—and if it ever does appear, you can read every detail of my experiences

R103 is correct. It's pretty obvious that "John Butler" was a john who thought he was the lover of an escort.

From Atkol: AtlantaGuy (Posted 6/7/1998 10:35:00 PM) John, I am curious about one thing: You go to great lenghts to say that you were in a relationship with "Rommel". Yet you met him as Steve Fox...the porn star... escort.

At what point did you stop paying for Steve/Rommel's "time". I would assume you paid him money the first time. How about after that? At what point were you sure that he was meeting with you without the benefit of money or gifts?

Not to offend... but it sounds like he may have hustled you just a little...

John Butler (Posted 6/7/1998 10:58:00 PM):

Dear AtlantaGuy: Sure I continued to give Rommel money all along after the strictly business first meeting. I was pretty well blinded by love, but I WAS in love, and did for him what I could. There is a lot more to it than that, but that part of it's pretty private. Stuff I found out after the breakdown showed there was a lot more than just a "little" hustle, believe me. Guys thinking with their dicks and guys in love don't always act as they wish later they had! I progressed from one stage to the other seamlessly! All part of the sad tale!

It really is too bad, but has been going on for centuries.... Old queen meets young boy or man and becomes besotted, blindly fooling himself into believing it's love.

Being used is never pretty, but when the person being so either goes along willingly or otherwise won't be told, what can be done?

John Butler must have thought people were a right pack of fools to believe his stories. That hot young Steve Fox was madly in love with some man old enough to be his father was laughable enough. But Mr. Butler's going on about endless hours of steamy jungle sex was just piling on.

Seems someone else besides Steve Fox might have benefitted from a bit of professional help.

Evasive responses are usually a clear indication mendacity. John Butler starts telling stories but then always ends with rest being "private" or some such nonsense. Well it would be since none of it happened outside of his deluded mind.

The Atkol stuff jogged my memory. John Butler was an old guy who posted often for awhile--he explained his screen name at one point. I think he was a servant/John (i.e., passive). He sounded a bit deranged in his attachment to Steve Fox, but Fox might have been good at tugging at the heart strings, esp. with an old needy guy like this.

R116 R117 - I seem to recall that it was mentioned as a sidenote, the main discussion being about Hunt's mental state. I suppose that the fact that he had been able to amass such a quantity of wealth is notable given his mental state.

R105 - It was either Vanity Fair or the New Yorker a number of years ago that had a fairly large article about 'Alan Lambert', that was because of the release of 'Finished' (1997).

So what was the nature of his "mental illness"? Since the denouement was a standoff with armed Atlanta police I'm thinking something pretty serious. Paranoid Schizophrenia usual strikes males in their 20's and results in suicide around 30.

My nephew is paranoid schizophrenic he has the exact same look in his eyes as R75 picture of this poor kid. There is something about the eyes. Sadly there really is no treatment. Psychotropic meds turn him into a zombie. Side effects are awful. So suicide is the more favorable option for many afflicted. Yes it is mostly males in their twenties. My nephew diagnosed at eighteen is 6'4" star basketball player and handsome . It's really hell on his parents, family and loved ones. He just doesn't relate to normal human emotions anymore. Which may be a blessing as the doctors say he really doesn't miss affection or feel lonely as we know it. He is basically in his own world in his head. Ghastly illness.

One big reason LPSG has a huge DNP list is because tiresome and needy queens cannot help posting smack about this or that model or Instahoe.

Paranoid Schizophrenia (outdated term) affects different people in different ways. Some can go days or weeks without an episode, others have things more severe.

For some things start off gradually with more good days than bad, then slowly things escalate so more bad then good.

There were then and today medication that can help along with other treatments.
