from thecollegefix.com – Several branches of the UCLA student government used a portion of their coffers to finance a “Porn Panel” event at UCLA recently, The College Fix has learned.

The March 4 workshop featured popular pornographic performers James Deen and Tasha Reign, with the tagline: “Get an inside look into the adult film industry from the stars themselves.”

In documents obtained recently through a California Public Records Act request, The College Fix determined $2,250 in honorariums were shelled out to two panelists.

Deen, currently one of the most popular pornographic performers in the industry, was paid $1,500 for his appearance. Reign, who launched her career as a UCLA undergrad and in 2014 earned a bachelor’s degree in gender studies, was paid $750 for her time, records show.

The use of student government money means the honorariums were paid for using a combination of student fees and taxpayer dollars.

Video – James Deen’s Hilarious “Pornstar Problems” Goes Viral

from shalomlife.com – James Deen, everyone’s favorite Jewish pornstar, has been keeping busy with his non-porn side projects as of late; after starring in The Canyons alongside Lindsay Lohan, he wrote an article about his experience for The Daily Beast, and recently even filmed a guest spot on Showtime’s forthcoming new show, Happyish.

On the show, Deen plays himself as he teaches the show’s protagonist about how to be happy, through the eyes of a porn star of course.

Deen’s most recent endeavor sees him continuing his porn-to-actor crossover success, with a rather hilarious two-minute short video produced by BuzzFeed called “PornStar Problems.”

Throughout it, Deen goes on various errands (which end with him being sexually harassed) before he finally arrives home to his girlfriend (which ends with him, well, I won’t spoil the ending).

The video is actually pretty spot-on, and accurately – I assume – illustrates what it’s like for famous pornstars trying to live a normal life outside of work hours.

In fours days, it’s already amassed some 671,000 hits, and counting.

from hollywoodreporter.com – Porn stars are popping up all over pay cable these days. Just a week after news broke that HBO’s True Detective would be enlisting some adult-film stars for its upcoming season, one of the most familiar names in the industry has booked a gig on the upcoming Showtime comedy Happyish.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that James Deen is set to play himself in an episode of the new series, where he’ll offer his advice on how to succeed in the adult-film industry and corporate America. (The same rules apparently apply.)

This is not the first mainstream foray for Deen, whose recent adult-film credits include My Sister’s First Anal 2, Eternal Passion 4 and MILFs Seeking Boys 9. He made headlines back in 2013 when he and Lindsay Lohan starred in Paul Schrader and Bret Easton Ellis’ wildly divisive The Canyons.

James Deen On Getting Rimmed: “I Don’t See How It’s Gay

from newnownext.com – We sat down with straight porn star James Deen recently and talked about all kinds of things—including why so many straight guys have a problem with anything sexual involving their butt.

“Rimming is awesome—and I don’t see how it is ‘gay,’” declared the star of Rump Raiders 6. “If the desire is to have a member of the same sex lick your butt then I would say that would be ‘gay.’ However, I lick lady butts and have ladies lick my butt all the time. I don’t see where or how that can be misconstrued as [gay].”

Hey, we’re as mystified as you, James.

He adds, “Am I missing something? Is it because buttholes are gay? Buttholes aren’t gay. Whoever said that needs to go pick up a copy of Everybody Poops.”

Good idea.

James Deen

from shalomlife.com – Our favorite Jewish porn star, James Deen, branched out from adult entertainment a few years ago to co-star alongside Lindsay Lohan in the mainstream film ‘The Canyons’. Deen is expanding his resume once more… adding baseball team owner to his resume.

Deen has acquired a co-ed softball team in the City of Los Angeles Adult Softball Program and renamed them the James Deens.

“I purchased this softball team because I thought it would be fun; not actually playing the game, but the idea of pretending to own a baseball team sounds pretty awesome,” Deen said in a press release.

The James Deens won the league’s Tuesday Division championship last year and look forward to beating out their competition in the upcoming season beginning in April.

Interview – James Deen: Libertarian Porn Star

James Deen

from thedailybeast.com – An HIV scare, Rand Paul talking points, and a (maybe) proposition. A turbulent night in New York City with porn’s boy-next-door.

As he munches on a parmigiano crostini, James Deen offers me an unsolicited answer to a question I never asked: “You’re pretty and nice,” he says, “but I wouldn’t have sex with you.”

Yes, the “nice guy of porn” has completely rebuffed a sexual advance I didn’t make, but it still stings a bit. He then backpedals, qualifying his answer to make it seem less personal. “I feel that would be unprofessional,” he says, which is deeply ironic coming from a man who’s made his living over the past decade shtupping women on camera. He proceeds to tease me, asking if our interview is “secretly a date?” I am both mortified and irritated. It is about an hour into our interview, but it is not the first sign of frat-boy cockiness veiled in jokes. Deen has been lost in his phone all night—and understandably so, since a potential HIV scare is breaking in the adult-film industry—and he has apologized profusely, but after the third, fourth time it just seems perfunctory, if not disingenuous. If this was a date, I’d have made an Irish exit and texted a friend to rendezvous for a stiff drink.

James Deen’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign Nets Over $5,000

November 6th, 2014 Comments off

Follow us on Twitter @PornValleyMedia and @AdultFYI1 Send email to: S5ks@aol.com

breastcancerribbonfrom shalomlife.com – In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October 1 – 31), prolific adult entertainment star James Deen is donating over $5000 of his online proceeds to national breast cancer charities. At the beginning of October, Deen pledged 50 percent of profits from JamesDeen.com and JamesDeenStore.com to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, National Breast Cancer Foundation, and The Rose – all top-tier charities committed to breast cancer prevention, treatment, and research. The money will be split evenly amongst all three organizations.

“I’ve witnessed many of my loved ones – from family to close friends – fight various forms of cancer, so for me, there’s a personal element to this donation,” says Deen. “I know people who have beaten it, and others who haven’t, so if I can make a positive impact on the war against cancer, I’m all for it.”

Deen adds, “I’ve had both a friend and a family member diagnosed with breast cancer, but regardless of the type, I think a fight against one cancer is a fight against all.”

Once mainstream media caught wind of Deen’s enthusiastic efforts to assist breast cancer charities, the campaign picked up even more steam. Features on popular outlets such as The Daily Beast further pushed awareness of Deen’s movement, and invited consumers to purchase more products for the cause.

Interview – James Deen: He’s a Porn Star, Not a Feminist

from betabeat.com – James Deen does not identify as a feminist. He’s said it before, and he said it again when the two of us had lunch recently on the Lower East Side.

We’d been talking about Mr. Deen’s fan base — specifically, his legion of devoted female followers. I’d asked if he took credit for introducing so many women to porn, and for letting them know that it’s okay to enjoy watching people have sex on camera.

“No,” he said instinctively. “I, uh, I mean, I don’t know. I don’t take credit for it. If you gave me credit for it, I would take it, but I don’t, like, I don’t run around and be like, ‘Guess what I did, guys?!’ But, uh, I mean, that would be pretty cool.”

“Would you say you’re a feminist?” I asked point-blank.

“No.”

I was surprised, even though I should have seen it coming. “No?” I asked again.

“Absolutely not.” He was clumsily and messily picking apart his grilled cheese sandwich because he didn’t like it.

“So why don’t you identify with that word?” I asked, eating my salad as calmly as possible, in a way that I hoped concealed my growing fury.

Several Breast Cancer Charities Refuse James Deen’s Donations

October 21st, 2014 Comments off

Always remember, the mainstream loves the porn industry.

James Deen: "I don't like cancer."

James Deen: “I don’t like cancer.”

from designntrend.com – You may know porn star James Deen from his collection of work. You may best know him from appearing alongside former Teen Mom star Farah Abraham in “Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom.” But did you know the guy has a soft spot for charity, just like a lot of us? But unfortunately for Deen, he can’t seem to give his money away.

With “so much cancer in his life,” Deen decided he wanted to use his fame to help raise money for Breast Cancer research. But when he approached several major charity organizations, they told him they didn’t want his money if his name was to be attached to it.

He explained, “All of them pretty much said, off-the-record, ‘Yeah, we’ll take your money, but we can’t say we support this whole porn thing because we’re going to lose our sponsorships from huge corporations that don’t like porn.”

So like any good businessman would, he pivoted. And he found some organizations that he could work with. Deen partnered up with Living Beyond Breast Cancer, National Breast Cancer Foundation and The Rose – all nonprofits that not only agreed to accept his donations, but also “give the majority of their money to research and medicine and health, as opposed to advertising and shady stuff.”

from thedailybeast.com – Despite an industry lockdown over a possible new HIV case, the porn star insists condoms shouldn’t be mandatory on set.

Porn star James Deen is more concerned about whether to order the musetto frito appetizer than the barely hours-old news that there has been a possible case of HIV exposure on an adult film set.

“I don’t really worry. I just think it sucks for that person,” he says as his phone chirps and beeps with alerts. I just happened to be interviewing Deen when the Free Speech Coalition, which represents the adult film industry, announced a moratorium on filming due to possible HIV exposure on a set outside of California.

“When someone tests positive, my concern is not for my safety,” says Deen. “It’s for their emotion(al) state and coming together as an industry to support them and help them get correct medical care.”

from entertainmentwise.com – Whatever reputation porn stars may have and whatever you may think of their profession, they still have relationships (off-camera!) like everyone else. And hey, they certainly know sex better than most!

So why not listen to what they have to say on the topic of relationships? To be honest it’s mostly pretty spot-on – much of the stuff they say can be applied to any romance, not just those where at least one partner has sex with others for a living.

James Deen

from theage.com.au – James Deen once asked his doctor whether sex counted as exercise. The answer was no. At least, not the sort of exercise required to maintain cardiovascular health and fitness. Then the doctor saw one of Deen’s films. The way Deen tells it, “He came back and he was like, ‘Your sex counts as a workout.’ ”

Deen, 28, is one of the world’s leading male porn stars. In a long list of features with titles like Naughty Rich Girls 3, Tits Ahoy 9 and Screamin’ for Semen 2, he is not just athletic but acrobatic. Researching this story, I find myself tilting my head to one side as I squint at images on my computer screen, trying to figure out which way is up. When we meet, he assures me he isn’t just showing off for his audience. “The sex I have on camera and the sex I have off camera are basically the same,” he says.

from shalomlife.com – Prolific adult film star James Deen will donate 50 percent of his web profits throughout October to benefit three top-rated charities assisting in breast cancer prevention, treatment, and research. Coinciding with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October 1 – 31), the effort will benefit Living Beyond Breast Cancer, National Breast Cancer Foundation, and The Rose, all not-for-profits.

“I know far too many people who have been plagued and/or died from cancer. I feel like a campaign against any form of cancer is a fight against all cancer, which is why I’m throwing my support specifically behind Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The research I did shows most people are willing to contribute to breast cancer charities, so hopefully it is how we can have the most impact,” Deen says, adding the funding will come from his popular websites, JamesDeen.com and JamesDeenStore.com.
