James Deen Denies Rape Allegations as More Victims Come Forward

James Deen has issued a response to Stoya’s rape allegations. Deen tweeted that the “allegations are both false and defamatory” and that “I respect women and I know and respect limits both professionally and privately.”

Of course, now that he’s been Bill Cosby’d, there’s no closing the floodgates. Yesterday, Joanna Angel wrote, “He’s dead on the inside and dead to me. He’s literally the worst person I’ve ever met. That’s all I’ll say for now.”

Tori Lux also published her account of an encounter she had with Deen where he allegedly hit her and forced her to smell his balls. At a shoot after finishing a scene, Lux was dressing when Deen, who was on set, came up to her and asked if she’d like to sniff his testicles. A “nope” escalated things. Deen asked once more, this time more aggressively. Another “no” led Deen to grab Lux by the throat and shove her down onto a mattress on the floor. Things didn’t quite end there.

He proceeded to straddle 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. I was completely stunned, having no idea how to react. I felt pressured to maintain a professional demeanor as this was a major porn set, with other people present and failing to intervene.

Another porn star, Sydney Leathers, says she was warned about Deen when she first started out in porn. During EXXOTICA Expo, she met Joanna Angel who warned her about Deen who liked to break women. “She said he’ll push you to your limits intentionally and break certain boundaries intentionally. Basically, I came away from the conversation thinking that James Deen was someone that I shouldn’t be around.”

Then there’s Ashley Fires who said Deen almost raped her. “The only time I’d ever seen this guy, he walked into the green room at Kink [studios], picks up another performer like a caveman, grabs her by the hair, and takes her off somewhere… and I can only imagine,” Fires told The Daily Beast. She then describes what a douche Deen was, “Later on that night, I was getting out of the shower of the communal bathroom at Kink, I reach for my towel to dry off, and he comes up from behind me and pushes himself and his erection into my butt,” she continued. “He pushes me against the sink and starts grabbing on me and I was like, ‘No, no, no James, no,’ and he released me from his grasp, and says, ‘You know, later if you want to f**k around I’m in room whatever-it-was. I was like, ‘F**k you.’ I didn’t even know this guy, he was so out of line and entitled with my body.”
