The “Jeff Stryker Cock and Balls,” a dildo fashioned from a cast of his penis, is widely sold in sex stores. The dildo was academically analyzed in a paper presented at the 1995 Bowling Green State University Conference in Cultural Studies: Lesbian Pornography and Transformation: Foucault, Bourdieu, and de Certeau Make Sense of the Jeff Stryker Dildo, by Mary T. Conway, then a graduate student at Temple University. The sex toy is notable not only for being popular, but also as Stryker and the manufacturer of the item litigated for the rights to its likeness as part of Stryker's "intellectual property". (The case eventually reached a mutually acceptable resolution - see Legal Battles.) In a 1999 salon.com article written by Jeff Stryker, a New York Journalist and the porn actor's namesake, the dildo is even described as an object of higher culture. It was mentioned in Allan Gurganus' 1997 novel Plays Well with Others, where the novel's narrator cleans up a closet filled with dildos, the premium find being "a Jeff Stryker, a Monster, but somehow Roman in its genial fluted civic beauty."
In 2001, he did a stage show called Hard Time. The play was a comedy set inside a prison and was homosexual in nature. In the finale Stryker danced nude. After the play Styker met with the audience at the door. It appeared in several cities including Los Angeles, California; Chicago, Illinois; and Houston, Texas.
Stryker appeared in "A Sophisticated Evening with Jeff Stryker" in Los Angeles, Summer 2006, and also in Provincetown, Massachusetts, Summer 2007. The show was produced by comedy Writer Bruce Vilanch. In that show, Stryker performed a comic monologue about his life and adventures in adult films, conducted a "porn acting demo" comedy skit with an audience member, and danced in a nude finale where he greeted the audience.
Stryker has also had arguments with Kulak's Woodshed, a folk-music nightclub, that is next door to his office. He claims that the club causes disturbance normally associated with large late-night urban venues: noise, drugs, unruly patrons, vandalism, graffiti, public urination and parking headaches. James Britton, who operates a floor covering Business on the other side of the club, also complains that the club has damaged his Business. In January 2009, the L.A. Weekly reported that Stryker blamed the nightclub for preventing him from completing his autobiography, as the noise and crowds disturbed his concentration. “(My writing has) been put on perpetual hold until I can get myself back together,” he told the newspaper. “I got a $25,000 advance on (the book) but could never complete it.”
But Paul Kulak counter claims (according to the L.A. Weekly) that Stryker has made threats to him and the club's customers: “He constantly reminds me he’s a firearms expert and will hide behind his back door when I dump the trash. Once, he started making mechanical gun clicks. I could see he had a pistol in his hand as he was dry-firing it... I’m willing to risk my life to keep this [club] going.” Stryker responded to Kulak's claim and was quoted as saying, "That guy is so out there!"
