James Deen: The First Straight Male Porn Star?

Categories: Porn

James_Deen_2010.jpg

James Deen is no relation to Paula Deen, though he does do amazing things with cream sauce.

At 26, he's emerged as a top porn star in the hetero adult-film world, which is rare, since the industry usually emphasizes busty women over sizzling men.

And here's what The Gay and Lesbian Review has to say about that:

"There has never been a male porn star in the heterosexual world, for the simple reason that men buy the vast majority of pornography, and straight men tend to notice the women on the screen.

"But that was before James Deen came along.

"Sure, there have been straight actors with exceptional dimensions (John Holmes) or capabilities (Peter North), but Deen is a bonafide heartthrob -- and he's selling DVD's by the truckload.

"This had led some people to conclude that women are at long last consuming more porn, because we all know that straight men don't want to see a dream boy onscreen, just a seviceable guy that they can relate to (not too thin!) getting it on with a beautiful babe."

But while the publication concedes that Deen does have a large female following, they feel that straight men must also be buying his movies in droves.

And they conclude by telling those dudes:

"It's okay to be attracted to another guy, especially one who's this adorable.

"It doesn't mean you're gay. ... Well, maybe a little."

Wrong, Ron Jeremy is the ultimate straight porn star.  If you don't get that, you don't get it.

I´m gay and I always liked to watch straight porn with certain porn actors, not only for their look but for personality or sex style. I always enjoy porn, no matter if straight or gay, where I can believe that actors enjoy it or have sex with style. For me, Rocco Siffredi was great porn star, Nacho Vidal or Mark Davis. I´m surprised article author doesn´t mention them, especially if Rocco was long time most expensive male porn actor. :-)

Well, I've always wondered about that. When straight guys watch hetero porn, aren't they looking at another guy, naked, 50% of the time? If that was a turnoff, they wouldn't watch it, right?

women like james deen because 1.) he bangs like a champ  2.)he is sexy and not all beefcake or bald fat guy looking  3.)he has a funny personality and charm  4.)he almost ALWAYS has sex like he actually is turned on by the girls and kisses, giggles, holds hands, eats out and looks them in the eye. he is a passionate lover, its true. he isn't just like 'yeah im fucking this b**ch' he wants to make sure they're pleasured too. even during his rough stuff, which is sexy as well.

Its tragic he's not queer.  My favorite straight porn star is still the deliciously sleazy John Leslie, but James Deen is a close second....they're both good filth-talkers while fucking.

Actually, I have been getting into straight porn more and more.  There's just a friction and drama there that the mannequinns in gay porn can't work up.

I met Harry Reems once - the package was amazing.

I only watch porn if he's in it, not even gonna lie.  some girl fake moaning while a faceless grunter hammers away in the background doesn't do it for me.

Oh, I think it could be argued that in his day (and it was more than just a couple of years), Harry Reems was pretty definitively a porn star, equal emphasis on both words.

And a hell of a lot sexier than this twig (however, as it were, gifted he may be), if you ask me...

The article seems to forget that Ron Jeremy is a huge straight male porn star. Not a heartthrob, no--but a star, yes.

@exackerlyYeah but in straight porn the guy is never alone on the screen.  Frankly for straight men the woman could be standing next to a gorilla and the gorilla would appear to be invisible if the woman were naked and hot.  Studies have actually been done to show this; not with porn, granted, but they've shown that if your attention is focused on, say, a basketball then you won't notice a gorilla running across the court.  Besides, straight guys don't want to see a girl playing with a dildo: they want to see her getting fucked so the naked guy is  necessary.

Shut up. He's a great guy and his whole appeal was that he's a shlubby guy the audience can relate to. He did a lot to bring porn into the spotlight.

@RrrrThey said it is "rare" for a male star to become famous, not that bit was impossible.  The fact is that most male porn "stars" don't appear on the box cover and may not even have their name on the box cover.  Rocco Siffredi and Lexington Steele are examples of male porn stars who have made a name for themselves.  I've heard of Nacho Vidal but I have to idea what he looks like because he does scenes with hot women and that makes him invisible to straight guys.
