Porn Star August Ames Dead

BREAKING NEWS

Canadian adult performer and multiple AVN Performer of the Year nominee August Ames has died.  According to the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s office, Ames died December 5 from asphyxia due to hanging.

Ames’ husband, adult director Kevin Moore, today said, “She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me. Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time.”

Some close to Ames said she had been suffering from depression, so speculation is rampant that her death is related to the enormous amount of online bullying the 23-year old had endured in the past days.

The beautiful August Ames

Trolls

The source of the bullying can be found in articles such as this, and this, which accused Ames of homophobia for exercising her right to decide whom she will and not allow to be inside her body.

Apparently this tweet started it all:

August Ames dead

Followed by this:

Ames inadvertently touched off a firestorm online

Actually, Austin, you’re full of shit.

Nothing to apologize for

In a post yesterday, we stood up for August Ames right to say no to sex with anyone, and called out the online PC troll brigade, including “pansexual” jackass Jaxton Wheeler and the irritating, pablum-puking Jessica Drake.

Ames stood by her convictions:

Her final tweet red simply “fuck y’all”

Her final tweet

 

In the aftermath of Ames’ death, there is outrage amongst her porn peers.

Let’s get this straight, SJW’s and members of the gay rights brigade: according to the Centers for Disease Control, UNAIDS, HIV.gov and the San Francisco Dept of Public Health:

  • An estimated 1,122,900 adults and adolescents were living with HIV in the U.S. at the end of 2015.
  • Of those, 162,500 (15% or 1 in 7) had not received a diagnosis, so were unaware of their infection.
  • Gay and bisexual men comprise an estimated 2% of the U.S. population, but account for between 67 and 79% of new HIV diagnoses..
  • In 2016, Gay and bisexual men (and men who have sex with men – MSM) accounted for 67% (26,570) of all diagnoses and 83% of HIV diagnoses among males.

 

In short, MSM are the highest risk group to have sex with. This is statistical fact, not bigotry. Just as mathematics are not misogynistic, science is not homophobic. So excuse the hell out of a female performer if she decides to take less risk in the already risky profession of sex work.

Requiem

Ames worked as a bartender before testing porn’s waters in November 2013. By 2015 she had won the AVN fan award for Cutest Newcomer, was nominated as Best New Starlet by both AVN and XBiz, and took home the XRCO Cream Dream trophy.

In 2017 Ames took home the AVN fan award for Most Spectacular Boobs.

Rest in Peace, August Ames. You were a very sweet young woman and it was a pleasure to have known you.

I never felt more satisfied or optimistic than when I rode the river in my youth.

    Sorry just want to highlight a very important part of your post so it doesn’t get lost and thank you for saying it, even if it’s not politically correct, it’s true —

    I wish we had a “thumbs up” or “like” button here. The comment made by Sam and re-posted in 72 point type by Kelli should be mandatory reading by all people involved in the adult film or even the escorting industry. Political correctness can go get triple penetrated by Coke can dicks, we need to get rid of about 90% of political correctness in this society — it is what killed August Ames. August didn’t really hit my radar as she wasn’t my type (my type is more Aiden Starr, Veruca James or Melissa Moore) but she should have had the right not to fuck men that perform in the gay sector of adult film without the intense reaming she took and evidently was ill-equipped to handle. Hell, for that matter she should have had the right not to fuck 450 pound senior citizens with two inch dicks on camera if that is her preference as well. RIP August Ames. I hope you are in a better place now. Maybe the AVN Awards can be dedicated to her memory.
