James Deen — arguably the world’s most famous male porn star who was on the brink of crossing over to the mainstream — may be considered the ‘Ryan Gosling of porn,’ but several women have come forward stating otherwise, claiming that 29-year-old Deen (real name Bryan Sevilla) had raped and assaulted them.
These are their stories.
It was James Deen’s ex-girlfriend Stoya who got the ball rolling, coming forward on Twitter to accuse “porn’s boy next door” of his actions. “James Deen held me down and f***ed me while I said no, stop, used my safeword. I just can’t nod and smile when people bring him up anymore,” she wrote.

Stoya said she and James Deen — who dated in 2013 — were not working together when the famous porn star allegedly raped her, adding that she felt ‘numb’ after the experience. “Then I felt like I’d been violated by someone I trusted,” she said.
2. Joanna Angel
Another victim of Deen’s, Joanna Angel voiced her support for Stoya on Twitter as well. She and James Deen dated for six years until 2010, however Angel recently revealed how abusive the six-year relationship truly was.
“There were times that I did fear for my safety, but I felt trapped,” she said in an interview with SiriusXM. “I didn’t know what to do. I felt very worn down and beaten down.”
Angel went on to describe Deen’s behavior while they were dating as extremely controlling and emotionally manipulative. According to Angel, James Deen dragged her by the hair and held her head submerged in a sink filled with water as she struggled for air.
She said, “At some point he dunked my head underneath and it started to feel like forever. I started to think, ‘I’m gonna die here.’”
Additionally, Angel claimed she would wake up on numerous occasions to find Deen on top of her, saying, “More than once I woke up to him choking me in his sleep… He really is a scary person.”
3. Farrah Abraham
MTV’s 16 And Pregnant and Teen Mom reality star Farrah Abraham has alleged that she was raped, drugged, and abused by James Deen, leaving her so traumatized that she has undergone intensive therapy.
“James Deen raped me for his benefit of fame,” she said to Daily Mail Online. “He conspired against me with others that I thought were my friends at the time and that was very hurtful. I let it all go and I wanted to move on; due to the public and others in the media believing an abusive womanizer, sex addict, disgusting, unprofessional, adult entertainer’s lies.”
Abraham first met Deen in Los Angeles around three years ago. While she did not disclose when exactly the alleged assault took place, she did share Deen’s pushy nature — with one instance stating Deen began to undress her when she asked for the opposite — was evident in the relationship.

“He tried to have sex with me on every occasion that we hung out,” shared Abraham. “He was being so pushy and that didn’t come across too well.”
Abraham, in an earlier interview, initially shared she was a rape victim. “I was drugged and raped more than once. I was allowed the [wrong] type of people into my life,” she stated, later on revealing that her alleged attacker was actually James Deen himself.
4. Nicki Blue
Porn actress Nicki Blue revealed to Daily Mail Online that Deen sexually assaulted her by urinating in her mouth and raping her with a beer bottle at a party. Blue was 21 years old when the alleged assault took place, saying she was a virgin when she first met Deen in 2011.
She added that the incident happened after a day of working together on a pornographic film. “It got more extreme and there was music playing so it was hard to hear. I started giving him [oral sex],” she recalled. “It was nice at first, then it got really rough. I kept trying to pull my head up to say something, it was too rough. But he would just push my head back in so I was choking and I couldn’t say anything.”
Blue added, “As he was doing it — and this is the embarrassing part and why I didn’t say anything — he said, ‘Oh my God, I have to go to the bathroom,’ and he p***** in my mouth. That was it, I spit it up, I was upset. Then after that, he had the idea of putting the beer bottle up my a**. So that was done.”
Now 27 years old, Blue said she felt unable to say anything that night, adding that no one else spoke up ‘because he was the star.’ She claimed James Deen did not seem to care about what he had done and had never issued an apology.
5. Kora Peters
“James kept trying to get inside my a** but I kept pushing him away, so he choked me, then he slammed my face down into the couch and forced himself in my a** anyway,” recalls Kora Peters on Deen’s aggression during the filming of a sex scene that took place early on in her career.
“The crew all high-fived him and told him what a great job he did getting an anal scene for the price of a boy/girl scene.” Peters, violated and in need of support, called her agent, only for her to be told that she “should feel honored that James wanted me so badly because he was one of the best male performers.”
“It’s crazy how I was the one under attack and James got accolades for raping me on set,” she said. Since then, Peters has avoided James Deen and hasn’t worked with him following the incident.
6. Amber Rayne
As one of the few who managed to develop a friendship with James Deen in spite of their history, Amber Rayne, speaking to The Daily Beast, claims she was initially reluctant to share her story, if only because she didn’t want to bring James Deen any more grief.
“I’ve gotten to know him on so many different levels,” she said. “There’s a friendship that’s developed. I don’t want to betray or lose that, but at the same time this did happen, and it happened to other people that I know and love.”
Rayne initially chalked up Deen’s youth at the time for his rough actions, sharing that James Deen was still starting out in the industry when they first worked together and he turned aggressive without her consent.
“We were in a piledriver, he was f***ing me in the a** and I said something like, “Yeah f*** me like that you son of a b****.’ His face twisted and he came down on my face two times — close-fisted,” she stated.
“I was punched in the face while he was still in my a** and then he starts going crazy on my butt — extreme, brutally f***ing it,” Rayne added. “He just starts shoving things in to the point where he ripped it and I bled everywhere. There was so much blood I couldn’t finish the scene.”
7. Tori Lux
Writing for The Daily Beast, adult actress Tori Lux shared James Deen assaulted her whilst filming at a major porn studio in 2011. She stated James Deen had provoked her almost immediately after she finished filming her scene.
She wrote, “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?’” Lux had neutrally declined, only for James Deen to repeat the question once more, this time aggressively the second time around.
“I replied with a firm ‘No,’ in order to establish my boundary — which James Deen then disregarded by grabbing me by the throat and shoving me down onto a mattress on the floor,” she shared of the assault. According to Lux, James Deen then proceeded to slamming his hand onto her face and head as he pinned her down.
“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,” she continued. “I was completely stunned, having no idea to react.”
Lux shared she felt “pressured to maintain a professional demeanor” as she was at a major porn set, claiming she kept quiet about the issue as many people tend to believe that assault towards sex workers is unlikely as porn occurs in a controlled environment.
8. Ashley Fires
Adult actress Ashley Fires revealed to The Daily Beast that James Deen is the only performer she absolutely refuses to work with, citing one particular incident as the reason behind her incessant refusal.
“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,” she recalled of her first — and only — time working with James Deen.
“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 went on.
“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*** around I’m in room whatever-it-was.’ I was like, ‘F*** you.’ I didn’t even know this guy, he was so out of line and entitled with my body.”
