After his ex-girlfriends and porn co-stars Stoya and Joanna Angel publicly accused the well-known and previously well-regarded James Deen of sexual assault and rape this weekend, prompting others to come forward with chillingly similar corroborating accounts of the year-old porn star, San Francisco's Mission District-based BDSM porn studio Kink. Often described as a "boy next door" type in the mainstream media, for whom he had enough crossover appeal to star in novelist and screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis' universally panned film The Canyons alongside Lindsay Lohan, Deen was even heralded by some as a feminist following a reverential profile in GQ. Now that neatly tied reputation is coming undone as victim after victim confronts Deen, such as one anonymous accuser in a harrowing account to LAist and another, Tori Lux, in an essay on the Daily Beast. Specific to Kink, performer Ashley Fires accuses Deen of assaulting her in the Armory building while shooting for Kink. To the Weekly , Kink issued this statement, which echoes the above. Our performers deserve not only safe sets, but the ability to work without fear of assault. Rape or sexual assault, with or without a safe-word, off-set or on, should never be accepted as a hazard of adult production. While many of the allegations against Deen are new, the pattern is alarming. Over the coming weeks and months, we will review our Model Bill of Rights to strengthen rights of performers off-set, and work with the larger industry to help performers to have been assaulted to more easily come forward. Also following the accusations, Deen has been suspended from his role as columnist at Lifestyle website The Frisky and resigned from The Adult Performer Advocacy Committe.
One of the women, Ashley Fires, is a performer who said that she was accosted by Deen in a communal bathroom at the Kink. Stabile said that he is unaware that anybody affiliated with the company knew of these allegations before this morning. As reported by SF Weekl y, another performer came forward Sunday night, alleging that she was assaulted by Deen in Tori Lux, who has also worked for Kink. Deen also took to Twitter to refute the allegations against him. Buzzfeed reports that Deen acted as chairperson on the board of directors of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, but resigned from that position this morning. Katja — the scenes filmed by Kink.
