More Women Come Forward With Allegations Against James Deen

December 1st 2015

Since adult actress Stoya accused former boyfriend James Deen of sexual assault a few days ago, more women have come forward with sexual assault allegations against the so-called "feminist porn star" beloved for his boyish looks.

After Stoya came forward, former porn actress Tori Lux and current porn actress Ashley Fires both claimed Deen assaulted them as well. Deen is denying the allegations.

On Saturday, November 28, Stoya tweeted the following about Deen:

On Monday morning, Lux wrote a Daily Beast article claiming Deen assaulted her on set in 2011:

"[A]lmost immediately after I’d finished my scene he began to antagonize me. I hadn’t even had time to dress myself when he said, with a smirk on his face, 'Tori Lux, would you like to sniff my testicles?' 'Nope,' I replied in a neutral tone. 'I’ll repeat myself: Tori Lux, would you like to sniff my testicles?' he asked, more aggressively this time. I replied with a firm 'No,' in order to establish my boundary—which James then disregarded by grabbing me by the throat and shoving me down onto a mattress on the floor."

Lux added that she did not call the authorities because many people, including the police, "tend to believe that sex workers have placed themselves in harm’s way, and therefore can’t be assaulted." Lux argued that this forces sex workers to shrug off their problems and keep working.

"My goal in writing this is not to paint the industry as a whole as oppressive or dangerous, but to shed some light on one fucked up personal experience of mine, in which James Deen ruthlessly attacked and degraded me, leaving me with mental wounds that took years to heal," Lux wrote.


Fires told the Daily Beast in a separate interview that she refuses to work with Deen because he "almost raped [her]" one night at Kink Studios. (In light of the allegations Kink dropped Deen as a performer and producer.)

"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. 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 fuck around I’m in room whatever-it-was. I was like, ‘Fuck you.’ I didn’t even know this guy, he was so out of line and entitled with my body.”

Fires told BuzzFeed News in a separate interview that she didn't know how to go about reporting Deen to Kink Studios at the time.

“Is there a complaint form you fill out?” she said "rhetorically," according to BuzzFeed News. “Is there a human resources department? How do you even go about making a complaint? I don’t know.”

Joanna Angel, an adult actress and former girlfriend of Deen, has also voiced support for Stoya in the wake of her claims. Angel also reportedly warned fellow porn actress Sydney Leathers about him as well.

“[Angel] 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.”

Following all of these claims, women's lifestyle site the Frisky has removed Deen's column from its site, and Deen has also reportedly stepped down from the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC) board of directors.


"APAC recognizes the seriousness of the statements made by performers in the community and that they indicate a major conflict between a board member and other members of the organization,” the organization said in a statement on Monday. "The APAC Board wants to state unequivocally that we stand with performers and other sex workers who are victims of any sort of sexual assault. APAC is committed to being a safe space for performers, and to creating a safer and healthier industry.”

ATTN: has reached out to Deen's production company regarding the multiple allegations and will update this story accordingly. For his part though, Deen has only spoken out against the claims on Twitter:
