Cole Taylor was a gay pornographic actor who primarily worked in the 1980s. He made his debut in the Nova Studios production Heroes (1984). He played the role of a college professor who falls asleep in front of his class, only to be gang-raped by his four students. He passes out, then wakens—naked, sore and covered in semen—with the students quietly reading their books.
Despite the acclaim for his performance in the scene, Taylor's career in adult film was a short one. Although he turned in several more notable performances—in Nightcrawler, The Company We Keep, Full Grown, Full Blown, Lifeguard, Perfect 10 and Thinking Big—Taylor retired from adult film in 1990. All told, Cole Taylor made just 21 gay pornographic films.
As of 1997, he was living in California.
