Scotty Bowers, a dashing young ex-Marine exuding sex appeal, arrived in Hollywood in 1946 and quickly caught the attention of many of the town's stars. Working out of a gas station on Hollywood Boulevard, Bowers soon became the go-to guy for anyone looking for a bespoke sexual partner; no matter how outlandish the tastes, Scotty could find someone for everyone...

In his thirty years 'tricking' and arranging tricks for LA's rich and famous, Bowers went to bed with thousands of people and engineered sexual liaisons of all flavours for countless more.

Full Service is the ultimate guilty pleasure, revealing for the first time the shadow lives of the people who created popular culture, told by the man who was so central to fulfilling their desires.

Review:

"Bowers became the Mr. Fixit for screen icons who sought out the more lurid trappings of Tinseltown during its glory days. Wild affairs, gay romps and rampant prostitution were the order of the day and Bowers was the man they turned to for their salacious entertainment." --Daily Mirror

"Full Service opens the doors of the closeted, X-rated underworld of old Hollywood through three decades." --Daily Mail

"Controversial . . . vivid . . . As well as a titillating catalogue of sexual intrigue, the book is designed to expose of the hypocrisy and fear that swirled beneath the industry's on-screen glamour and crafted wholesomeness." --Guardian

"This handsome ex-Marine and his friendly gas station have long been alluded to in Hollywood memoirs. And now, at last, they go public." --The New York Times

"Scotty Bowers made his reputation by sleeping with everyone in Hollywood who wasn't actually Lassie, and now he tells all." --The New Yorker

From the Author:

Scotty Bowers moved to LA after WWII and spent years as a bartender, confidante and gigolo to a host of Hollywood icons. Now eighty-eight years old, Bowers still works as a bartender at private functions in Hollywood. Lionel Friedberg is an Emmy Award-winning producer, director and writer.
