Mini Bio (1)

Standing at 6'4", weighing over 240 pounds and boasting an eleven inch long penis, Ken Ryker is a giant of a man in more ways than one. Born to American parents in Chonju, Korea in 1972, he later moved back with his family to the States in the mid 1980s. At home in Texas he began beefing up his body at school by regularly working-out in the gym and playing in the football and basketball teams. A nasty car crash scuppered a career in the marines so in his early twenties Ryker moved, with his girlfriend, to the San Fernando Valley in California, seeking fame and fortune. Once settled there he acquired an agent to represent him professionally and he soon began stripping in clubs and modelling for porn magazines. His agent eventually persuaded him to make better use of his physical attributes by appearing in adult videos. His first film was 1994's 'New Pledgemaster', in which he played a college jock. Despite claiming to be 'straight', Ryker has become one of the biggest stars of gay porno. In 1995 he won 'Best Newcomer' at the Adult Video News Awards, and his 1996 film 'The Other Side Of Aspen IV' has become one of the most rented gay videos of all time. In recent years Ryker has branched out into bisexual movies too, with great success.

After he confessed to fellow superstar Hal Rockland that he was having "a spiritual awakening" and feeling guilt about his porn past, Rockland walked out on his video, Three Brothers. Although Ryker maintains he didn't know Rockland was undergoing the same re-examination of his life, the video's director, Gino Colbert, claims Ryker told him Hal and Vince Rockland "had found Jesus and wouldn't be returning to the set."
In September 2000 he announced that he would be appearing in director Jim Steel's new all-male porno movie 'Taking Chances', to be released by Men of Odyssey distributors. Unfortunately, the film stalled in pre-production and never got made.

Personal Quotes (2)

I believe in right and wrong. There's nothing wrong with having values and being in this industry. You can still be honest with people, deal fairly with people, be good to people. That doesn't mean I'm a Bible-thumper. It just means I have certain standards that I choose to live by. If you want to call me religious or whatever, that's fine, but I think it's good if people have certain principles that they live by.
Whether I'm playing football or bailing hay I'm always aware of what muscles in my body are being worked; I even enjoy the soreness afterwards. - Torso Magazine
