James Deen is an extremely successful adult entertainment performer and director. As a kid who craved attention, Deen always tried to shock people. And anyone who knew him then would probably be shocked to know that Deen has fulfilled his long-time ambition of becoming a porn star. The tag "trouble-maker" followed him from elementary school. So what did Deen do? He resolved to put his early desire to be a porn star into high gear at age 18 when he traveled to Hollywood to meet up with a stripper friend in 2004. That meeting put Deen in touch with industry professionals. The rest is history. With his own unique porn persona as an unlikely sex stud, this innocent-looking, scruffy-faced scamp with mischievous tendencies is a highly prolific porn performer, having made more than 4,000 films and directed 31 titles in merely a decade. Ostensibly the attention in porn flicks is usually on the female; however, when James Deen is in the scene, his scene-stealing performance is quite compelling.
Having worked with nearly every available co-star from male to female and with just about all the studios in the business, including Vivid, Acid Rain, and Evil Angel, Deen frequently collaborates on developing new avenues to display his art form. He has cultivated followers across a wide demographic and often seeks out mainstream opportunities to promote his activities. And what's more, Deen's untiring efforts in doing the work he simply loves have been validated by commendations, awards and industry accolades that have earned him multiple consecutive Male Performer of the Year awards.

Born in Los Angeles and raised in Pasadena, California, Deen is the son of professional parents. One of the most important influences in his life is his Jewish heritage. Deen spent his youth in and out of trouble, nothing serious, though. At age 17 he worked for Starbucks for two years and took classes at Pasadena City College. But as soon as he turned 18, he knew he was destined to have sex with girls on camera. Hence, he entered the porn industry in 2009. Even in high school he was a true exhibitionist who enjoyed having sex with girls in front of his friends at various parties all over Los Angeles. In his early years in the porn industry, peers warned him that his skinny body type and boyish looks were not fit for porn, but within a few years he excelled to become the top performer in the industry, the youngest male to ever win Male Performer of the Year awards from both the AVN and XBIZ industry organizations.
Described in published reports as "not just a prop for some lady's vagina; he's got a distinct style that's won him awards." With boyish looks, curly brown hair and really blue eyes, James Deen portrays a nasty boy with tendencies for incessant naughtiness sometimes verging on the rough side in his screen performances. Not your average hunk with junk, this unlikely scene stealer packs a potent punch. The way in which this unassuming, playful, boyish-man wields his powerful rapier as a tool of the trade to lash and bash and bang and wang his way around a scene is quite compelling.
With an honest passion for all kinds of sex both on and off camera which is displayed in the array of movies to his credit (over 4,000), anything from hardcore BDSM, to straight gonzo or feature adult films, Deen is always the most captivating male on screen. Usually paired with female artists, Deen can also be seen in group scenes (threesomes, foursomes, gangbangs, blowbangs, and orgies). If you are a fan of porn, you have likely witnessed his on-screen shenanigans (uh credentials). However, if you have not yet viewed Deen in action, it would be well worth your time to see why he has also won the Cocksman of the Year award.
