A day after his former girlfriend and fellow porn star Stoya accused him of sexually assaulting her, James Deen has come out to deny the claims, calling theme “egregious”, “false” and “defamatory.”

In a pair of Tweets over the weekend, Stoya accused Deen of having sex with her against her will when the two were dating. “I just can’t nod and smile when people bring him up anymore,” she said.

Deen has responded by saying “I respect women and I know and respect limits both professionally and privately.”

Since Stoya’s initial accusation, two further women have come forward to accuse Deen of sexual assault, with porn stars Tori Lux and Ashley Fires both claiming that he attacked them.

Lux published a piece in The Daily Beast recalling an incident on a porn set in 2011, in which she says Deen asked her to “sniff his testicles” and became violent when she refused, pinning her to a mattress and hitting her.

Fires told The Daily Beast on Monday that she refuses to work with Deen following an occasion on which he attempted to force himself on her when she was getting out of the shower on a porn set, pushing her against a sink and pressing his erection into her.

She claims that Deen eventually listened to her pleas of “no”, but also says that a year or so later Deen confronted her about the incident and demanded that she “stop telling people about it.”
