NYU sophomore Diana Colton not her real name has an extra line to add on her resume: The year-old filmed two scenes with porn superstar James Deen. Colton said she applied to film an amateur scene with him through his website on a lark; to her surprise, Deen offered to film with her. But Colton is nothing like the Duke porn star who made waves last year when she was outed.

This past Saturday, a friend read me this tweet while getting ready for a party. When they were together, the couple was often referred to as the power couple of porn. This news stopped me in my tracks. These were some of the people I would continually refer to in my insistence that porn was not a bad and harmful thing, and that there were smart people who partook in scenes that could look degrading but were crafted with a foundation of communication and consent. Could my progressive hopes be quashed by a brutal behind-the-scenes truth? Rather than worry about if porn is overall a beneficial or corrupt entity, it is important to examine incidents like this to take note of the complexities and stigmas present, and push for more transparency and communication regarding consent and sexual behavior both inside and outside the porn industry. Notably, it has also caused several other female porn performers the count is currently at five to come forward publicly that Deen had also assaulted them, both on and off porn sets. Deen is arguably one of the biggest male porn performers today, garnering significant media attention and a large, notably female fanbase. I personally had been a fan of his work, joining the masses who saw something refreshing in his relatable quality that made him seem more like a person, rather than just abs and a thrusting penis.
New York University sophomore Diana Colton her stage name isn't the only woman who's fantasized about having sex with her favorite porn star, James Deen. If the porn industry were a high school, Deen would be the prom king, valedictorian, and shy, sensitive guy you'd bring home to mom and dad, all rolled into one. He's a three-time AVN Awards Performer of the Year think of the Oscars for the adult entertainment industry , and known for being flirty and sweet. The women he performs with actually seem like they're enjoying themselves. But last year, Colton decided she was going to make her fantasy a reality. She entered a casting call on Deen's website , never really expecting to hear anything back.
By Sadaaf Mamoon. Think you had a nice V-day? Think again. Because unlike yours, her valentine was L. It begs mentioning here that James Deen is an adult film star with a large penis who makes a great deal of money putting said penis inside people. Would hold her hand in public and call her the next day.
