Mark Beard writes: “I asked Robert Mapplethorpe to take me to the ‘Mine Shaft,’ a famous S&M club. He agreed but told me it was finished and boring. We made Christmas trees together for New York Magazine. He asked to make nude photos of me. I refused. I was afraid my parents would someday see the pictures.”
