The proposed $77,875 penalty comes months after the high-profile adult entertainment star, known as an ambassador for the industry, experienced a stunning downfall amid numerous public accusations of assault. In November, three women who were fellow porn actors – Stoya, Tori Lux and Ashley Fires – said that Deen had sexually assaulted them, prompting Deen to describe the accusations as “false and defamatory”.
A number of industry groups subsequently severed ties with Deen, who is now facing state allegations that he runs an unsafe workplace.
Deen denied the accusations in a statement on Thursday, arguing that no performer was exposed to any disease and that the government should not dictate what people watch in the privacy of their homes.
Well... we really hope that this case will be settled soon, but nevertheless... I'm amazed of how this porn star really thinks about the use of condoms. In a world so full of HIV infections and other STD's, surely he and his collegues should give a good example? OK, maybe it's not 'sexy' to watch a porn star use condoms but then, getting ill from making love is even less sexy. Think about it!
