OK I am travelling as most of you know but I have been watching this closely. The short version is that Stoya went on the record that James Deen raped her. In her own words:
“James Deen held me down and fucked me while I said no, stop, used my safeword. I just can’t nod and smile when people bring him up anymore.”
Deen’s other girlfriend Joanna Angel, went on the record as supporting Stoya 100%
Other female performers have noted that this is not the first time this has happened with Deen. Indeed I have had more than a few girls contact me off the record that only wanted to vent, they didn’t want to come out and say anything because they felt Deen was powerful enough to cost them work.
Lets look at some of his other stunts…He seems to have a fascination with Nazi’s, yes I know he is jewish.
He likes to play nazi
He recently went on and on about supposed racism in porn in a mainstream article apparently the fact checkers didn’t bother to see if Deen hires black people for his videos…hint, he doesn’t…
All of that aside, rape is a serious allegation, for the purpose of this piece I have chosen NOT to speak to him, Stoya or anyone else and simply post my thoughts.
I have read a lot about it, and some things jump out at me ..first being consent to sex doesn’t mean that you can do anything you please even though she is saying “Stop”, it appears that James doesn’t understand this, as this is the most common allegation. It also is understandable why none of the girls have come forward, even Stoya…Deen is porns it boy and I emphasize boy because he continually displays childish behavior. He is a very poor choice to be a spokesperson for the industry and particularly for any association of performers, a post that if APAC is serious they will relieve him of until this gets settled.
The really sad part is that this is indicative of what porn has become, and this is what AVN considers to be a “positive image”
Did ya notice how quick AVN was to say “Hey asshole No Means No” when it came to War Machine, but when it came to James Deen…crickets….typical of the quality of AVN these days and Xbiz isnt far behoind…truth is they are one and the same…does anyone else notice that they share an editorial staff….Tod Hunter, Dan Miller?
More as this develops, I would love to hear what you think.
