James Deen Wins Performer Adult Site of the Year at 2017 XBIZ Awards

This marks the 12th XBIZ award for the adult performer

James Deen’s membership site JamesDeen.com won this year’s XBIZ award for Adult Site of the Year — Performer.

“It is an extreme honor to win this award,” he said in a statement. “It means so much to me that the adult industry has been so supportive and such a great family of people. Being told that JamesDeen.com is one of the better websites is a super cool feeling and I plan to make it even cooler in the upcoming years.”

JamesDeen.com is known for its “Do A Scene With James Deen,” where women can apply to act out a scene with the star.

The 2017 Performer Adult Site of the Year win is Deen’s 12th XBIZ award win. He has previously won awards such as Male Performer of the Year and Crossover Star of the Year.

“This award is to recognize JamesDeen.com as a website opposed to me as a performer,” Deen told TheWrap on how this award differentiates from his previous awards. “I have received many awards as a performer, but as a company owner and website creator I am still pretty new in the game.”

Deen was recently accused of neglecting to use condoms on the sets of his adult films. Deen faces stiff fines of up to $77,875 for violating workplace safety regulations, including the failure to use condoms while filming brought on by investigators at Cal/OSHA (California Department of Industrial Relations Division of Occupational Safety and Health). Deen has “vigorously” denied the accusations, claiming that his performers were tested for STDs and have voluntarily chosen not to wear condoms.

In 2015, the adult film star and producer was also accused of assault by nine women. Three of those accusers said the alleged assaults took place on the set of a porn film: Tori Lux, who claimed that Deen attacked her on a shoot in 2011; Amber Rayne, who claimed Deen punched her twice in the face and “brutally” sodomized her during a 2006 shoot; and Kora Peters, who said Deen ignored her refusal to perform anal sex and did so forcibly, after which the crew “all high-fived him.”

Deen has denied all allegations, and Amber Rayne has since passed away.
