John Travolta’s former gay lover is opening up for the first time about their passionate six-year-relationship — spilling all the secrets to the new issue of the National Enquirer.

Former pilot Doug Gotterba, 62, claims that the 58-year-old big screen heartthrob’s sexual appetite was insatiable, that he wanted to make a sex tape, and that he enjoyed cavorting with multiple male partners at a time.

Gotterba tells the Enquirer that he met Travolta in February 1981 when the actor interviewed him for a pilot job and they soon became lovers.

“We flew into Monterey, Calif., and went up to the Highlands resort in Carmel,” Gotterba says. “We had a wonderful dinner with a fantastic bottle of merlot, and I got the sense I was being courted.

“As we walked from the restaurant back to the room, John suddenly said, ‘Hey, would you like a massage?’

“I’d already prepared myself for something like that, so I said, ‘Sure, why not? I went back to his room, showered and came out wearing only a towel. John said, ‘Okay, like down here on the bed.’ He gave me a massage – and it turned into something else!

“John was gentle, but very passionate. The next day, he told me with a big smile on his face, ‘I really enjoyed last night.’ And I told him, ‘So did I!”

From that moment, Gotterba says they became a couple and Travolta whisked him away to wherever he wanted. The last time Gotterba saw Travolta was in 1992. By that time the Hollywood hotshot had married Kelly Preston.

“They’d just gotten back from the Church of Scientology’s Celebrity Center in Hollywood when I arrived and John asked me to go with him for a walk on the beach,” Gotterba says.

“We were making small talk when suddenly, I blurted out, ‘So, John, tell me. Now that you’re married, do you still prefer men – or women?’ He looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘Well, Doug, I still prefer men!’ I said, ‘okay.’ And that’s the last time we saw each other.”

How ‘Zoolander’ Influenced Comedy With Its ‘Man-Child-Turned-Man’ Blueprint

The recent rumors around a possible sequel to Ben Stiller’s 2001 male model comedy, “Zoolander,” provide an apt opportunity to reflect on just how much the film helped to shape the direction Hollywood comedies would come to take. Despite the ostensibly silly exterior, “Zoolander” provided an excellent blueprint for the “man-child coming-of-age” stories that have […]

I was a strict vegetarian for a little over a decade, and I have only recently started eating meat again. However, I am eating meat in […]

Men: When Did You Decide You Don’t Need To Use Condoms Anymore?

Condoms, condoms everywhere, but not a rubber to be found. The word we used to cringe at in health class is now a word on the brink of extinction. The small piece of latex in the candy-colored wrapper we once associated with maturity and sexual awakening has skipped our adolescence, passed over our 20s and […]
