What can one say about Scotty Bowers? From his early days setting up tricks at a gas station in California to his 88 years of still pimping today. What this book reveals is that Scotty Bowers in my view is a classic sociopath who is bi-sexual. He has managed to cross paths with the Hollywood elite and as a result has many friends.
He has several serious relationships with women and had one daughter who dies from a botched abortion. We learn some of the fetishes of Tyrone Power and Charles Laughton that are nauseatingly described by Scotty.
The book was an easy read and what it reveals is information that we've already known about the gay community and its famous stars, i.e., Rock Hudson, Cary Grant, James Dean and many others. There's nothing new except that Scotty tells his story with a straight face while still turning tricks. The amazing thing about Full Service is that Scotty has managed to stay healthy while others have succumbed to Aids.
