In his 2012 memoir, Scotty Bowers doesn’t appear to hold back on the lengthy list of notable clients he and his workers serviced over the years. The Hollywood Reporter tells of how Bowers claims that he had sexual encounters or made arrangements for hookups with many actors, actresses, directors, and other recognizable names from Hollywood’s Golden Era. “Full Service” says that among his client list were actors Cary Grant, Charles Laughton, Spencer Tracy, and Randolph Scott. If one-on-one encounters weren’t their thing, Bowers could arrange for an event more conducive to an entire group, such as the orgy he says he put together for Cole Porter.
Bowers claims to have had Katharine Hepburn as a client as well. Over the years, Bowers said he made an estimated 100 hookups between the multiple Oscar winner and various women on his payroll. Other Hollywood starlets said to have used Bowers and company were “Bride of Frankenstein” star Elsa Lanchester and actress Bette Davis. Bowers also purported to have had a sexual relationship with former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. According to the sex worker, this act was performed when the head of the G-men was dressed in drag.
Famed sex researcher Alfred Kinsey got to know Bowers, but on a more professional level. Bowers was approached by Kinsey and participated in several of his research studies. According to The Guardian, Bowers shocked Kinsey by “checking off every sex act on his list.”
