James Deen Accused Of Rape And Assault By Multiple Porn Performers

Various women in the porn industry are coming forward with serious accusations.

Some serious claims are being made by porn performer and accomplished writer Stoya about her ex-boyfriend James Deen, who is also a porn performer. After seeing numerous outlets hailing him as a feminst, Stoya has come forward with accusations that Deen had raped her during their relationship:

The next day, Deen responded, flat-out denying the allegations:

In between the accusation and the response, Deen's weekly sex advice column on The Frisky was officially cancelled. Editor-in-Chief of the gossip website, Amelia McDonnell-Parry, made the announcement over Twitter:

She later explained her comments more thoroughly in a statement on her website. “From a professional standpoint, as the editor of a woman’s blog which has published the accused’s words, acting swiftly and decisively is the least that I can do," wrote McDonnell-Parry. "The court of public opinion is not a court of law, and I don’t need Stoya or any woman to ‘prove’ that she has been raped for me to believe her. Women who come out as rape victims are far, far, far too often not believed. This is especially true of women who work in the sex industry, with people actually wondering aloud if porn stars can be raped.”

As details on the situation emerge, at least two more women have come forward with more accusations against Deen. Porn performer Tori Lux wrote the following in a graphic essay published on The Daily Beast that detailed her assualt: "He ... straddle[d] my chest, pinning down my arms with his knees. Then, he raised his hand high above his head, swinging it down and hitting me in the face and head with an open palm. He did this five or six times—hard—before finally getting off of me.

Disoriented and nursing a sore jaw, I stood up—but before I could collect myself, he grabbed me by my hair and shoved me to my knees, forcing my face into his crotch several times before shoving me to the floor."

Porn performer Ashley Fires reported a similar incident in a different post on The Daily Beast. "The reason I put him on my ‘no list’ was because he almost raped me,” she states.

Stoya's business partner, Kayden Kross, has expressed her support for Stoya and has suggested that many more women have also suffered at the hands of Deen. Here are her tweets on the subject:

Joanna Angel, another porn performer and Deen ex, has also reached out to Stoya:

Angel declined to comment any further. According to The Daily Beast, however, Angel has been warning others about Deen for a while: "Years ago she allegedly warned adult actress Sydney Leathers to steer clear of Deen. 'She told me when I first got into the business that I should avoid him—that he has boundary issues, basically that he tries to break women,' Leathers told The Daily Beast. 'I took it to mean that he is dangerous.'"

Deen's pornography career has been oriented around rougher sex and rape-fantasy porn. “I don’t know how to say it without being a hideous prick, but I’m pretty good at having rough sex,” he once told The Observer. “It got to the point where a lot of girls who aren’t into that type of sex were afraid to work with me because they thought I was going to slap them in the face or something. But I only do that if the girl is into it. There’s no reason to choke somebody if they don’t like getting choked. Then you’re basically being an asshole.”

Deen is also no stranger to making light of rape on his Twitter account:

With the new knowledge of Deen's sordid history, some sites are going as far as calling him the Bill Cosby of the porn industry.
