James Deen (b. 1986) is an American adult film actor and director. Known for his “boy-next-door” looks, he has become a top star. His many films include The Art of Romance, Married with Boyfriends, New Sensations, The Innocence of Youth, Boss Lady and Polyamory. His honors include several Adult Video Network awards, including Male Performer of the Year, Most Outrageous Sex Scene and Best Group Sex Scene. He has also appeared in some mainstream films, such as The Canyons. At the invitation of educators, he has spoken about sexuality, legislation, contraception and other topics to college students. In 2015 several women made allegations of sexual abuse, including rape, against Deen. The allegations do not seem to have been resolved, though he was dropped by several companies for whom he was endorsing products as well as the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, a trade organization.
I had been unfamiliar with James Deen. I did watch a few videos of his for research. They were full of rough sex. I found them troubling as I did the allegations against him.
