If you had to give up either sex or burritos for the rest of your life, which would it be?

ummmm she was dating this guy who owed me money and she wasn't allowed to talk to me but we always wanted to have sex since the day we met. we hadn't spoke for about 4 months and then ended up on set together and there was a lot of sexual frustration and build up anticipation... the guy ended up paying me too so it was a good day.

what are the most inaccurate stereotypes/presumptions about the porn industry?
IAmJamesDeen2723 karma2014-06-26 01:10:50 UTC
i think a lot of people don't understand how truly professional the adult industry is. also how strict our health protocols are
silversdark1756 karma2014-06-26 00:53:36 UTC
Do you and Stoya ever bring people into the bedroom or do you keep your private realtionship just between you two?
IAmJamesDeen2729 karma2014-06-26 01:12:22 UTC
like to do what? we let people in all the time. someone has to check on the cats while we are away insert obvious wink sound and face
laidback_hoser1538 karma2014-06-26 00:51:53 UTC
You're known for whispering stuff to the women you bang on camera, but what is, according to you, the hottest thing a woman has ever whispered to you during sex, either on camera or off?
IAmJamesDeen2071 karma2014-06-26 01:04:04 UTC
i wish i had an answer for that... ummmm it obviously wasn't memorable. i was probably lost in the moment or it was situationally hot. sometimes a lady can just say hi and it is hotter than any dirty talk i ever heard
Asksthewrongquestion2110 karma2014-06-26 01:16:42 UTC
You sure it has nothing to do with lemons?
Edit: I'd like to dedicate this gold to James Deen's love for lemons. Thanks stranger!

Must also be easier to get turned on when your chances of getting laid are 100%.

this is true. i am a total slut and pretty much a sure thing (winky noise)

nope. i just make porno. i actually make movies for me based on what i wanna see. i literally go in with zero regards to who my audience will be.
yes. check fleshbot.com
president_of_derp1038 karma2014-06-26 01:11:44 UTC
That's pretty much how Trey Parker and Matt Stone make South Park. They just do whatever they think is funny, not really thinking about the audience. I'd say it works.
IAmJamesDeen3001 karma2014-06-26 01:27:38 UTC
i always say always create art for yourself and the audience will appreciate good work.. actually i never say that. i just said that now for the first time. why did i say i always say that?

On your website, you have a awesome opportunity to do a scene with you. Not so awesome for those of us that cant apply due to job (aka elementary teacher). Any chance that opportunity could happen without cameras?
IAmJamesDeen2075 karma2014-06-26 02:11:12 UTC
that wouldn't be a scene. that would be us just having sex. never say never :-)

How is the porn industry going to continue to innovate and stay relevant when facing so much free amateur porn, piracy, etc.?
IAmJamesDeen1768 karma2014-06-26 01:17:44 UTC
good question. it is tough. i personally think the adult industry really fucked themselves over in the begging stages of internet porn. they lost the customers trust by doing shady moves like prechecked subscriptions and one click upsells etc etc. i personally try (at http://jamesdeen.com winky sound) to run an ethical business where i try to provide quality content and not screw over the costumer. i also intent to create social networking platforms and a better structure to provide an adult viewing service that incorporates more than just my own product. the goal is to create a porno wonderland where people WANT to participate. not a place where you trick people into handing over 30 dollars and hope they don't notice.
Nomsfud915 karma2014-06-26 00:58:36 UTC
What was Faye Valentine like really? I've been a fan of her films since I was eighteen and just wonder if she's as good as she looks
EDIT: a lot of people are insisting I discovered Faye Reagan before I was eighteen. The first video I saw with her in it was one where she was holding up her license saying she was born in 1988. I was also born in 1988. This would make me eighteen the first time I saw any porn from her
IAmJamesDeen1082 karma2014-06-26 01:35:52 UTC
she was a very sweet girl and i hope she is doing well where ever she is
RedditRalf911 karma2014-06-26 00:36:44 UTC
Is it difficult to perform when you have camera man, director and all the other people involved that arent seen on the films watching you. And has there been any funny incidents that have happened on scene with these people?
IAmJamesDeen1718 karma2014-06-26 00:58:30 UTC
i don't think so, but then again, this is what i do for a living so it would be a bad sign if i said it was. tons of funny things. you can capture all sorts of porno bloopers on the internet using google. god damn i fucking love google

Are you going to ever marry and/or settle down and have kids? If not, why?

i currently don't want kids. i do like the idea of marriage. i am a sucker for romance

What's the weirdest thing a female fan has said/asked you to do?
Being a female fan, I have a few ideas but I'll keep them to myself. curtsies
IAmJamesDeen1830 karma2014-06-26 01:28:46 UTC
nothing really weirds me out. i have done some stuff that people would probably think is weird but to me it was nothing weird at all... is peeing in someone's mouth while they dry hump a giant teddy bear weird? i don't think so but i can see why others would
IAmJamesDeen401 karma2014-06-26 01:08:46 UTC
i don't find many things weird.

How was working with Farrah Abraham like? How did she compare to professional porn stars?
IAmJamesDeen1392 karma2014-06-26 01:01:17 UTC
i think she qualifies as a professional porn star. she got paid to professionally make a porno. doesn't that qualify? i think she did a very good job.

What was your reaction when you won your first Male Performer of the Year award?
If you could do one job for the rest of your life that had nothing to do with porn (acting, directing or producing), what would you choose and why?
IAmJamesDeen873 karma2014-06-26 01:18:34 UTC
i was very happy. it made me start to care about awards
i would probably be a lawyer. or in school trying to figure out what i wanted to be when i grew up. producer sounds fun too

not really. i don't leave my house much so it isn't really a flood of people shouting my name in the streets.

Is someone reading and typing for you?
IAmJamesDeen1020 karma2014-06-26 01:42:52 UTC
no, i just legit am not really into books. sometimes the prom queen will read to me because she loves to read and i like to listen. i am much more of an auditory learner anyway
hodayathink489 karma2014-06-26 01:05:30 UTC
If AB1576 passes, as a director/producer, do you see yourself shooting in California with condoms, or moving your productions out of California?
IAmJamesDeen812 karma2014-06-26 02:08:43 UTC
that is a whole thing... it really is messed up and hypocritical and a whole mess. i am really not educated on the bill enough to make a full statement but i don't see anyone using condoms if they weren't already and i don't see anyone movie if they haven't already. it violates all sorts of other laws and really just makes it so the government can always prosecute someone for something if they want.

Do fans ever aggressively grab at you? If so, how do you deal with situations like that?
IAmJamesDeen1336 karma2014-06-26 02:13:37 UTC
rarely. i usually politely explain why it is not ok to do that kind of thing and try to give them some sexual education about respect for other people's boundaries
iatemysocks382 karma2014-06-26 01:00:51 UTC
Any advice for someone who might want to get into the industry in the production side of things? Do you like... do you need to know a guy, or how does that work?
Also I am a huge fan!! You're basically the only porn I bother watching.
IAmJamesDeen639 karma2014-06-26 01:54:40 UTC
be professional. people won't work with you if you are just trying to get laid.

Hi James, long time fan, first time caller. Wondering about the dialogue for the FANTASTIC lemon stealing whore. Was it scripted? Or improved?
IAmJamesDeen548 karma2014-06-26 02:50:09 UTC
loosely scripted but primarily improvised
actonesceneone359 karma2014-06-26 01:20:09 UTC
Question about Farrah. Did you expect the backlash involved in that shoot? Was she hesitant to do it? Would you do it again?
Thanks man, you do some cool shit!
Edit: Farrah is a teen mom from the show Teen Mom 2.
IAmJamesDeen594 karma2014-06-26 02:19:58 UTC
i kinda did. looking back it was obvious. i kept all the phone calls with vivid and the emails and texts and never signed a NDA so i have no restriction in any way or worry about what is true or anything
she was not hesitant. she and the company had a well negotiated deal before i ever met her.
i don't think i would.

Bosch_Bettina142 karma2014-06-26 00:59:09 UTC
Were you going for cult porn film classic on Seven Deadly Sins? It is very sophisticated for pornography/adult entertainment. Was it your intent to break through and created a new genre in the adult film industry which was more artistic?
IAmJamesDeen184 karma2014-06-26 01:53:31 UTC

How did you get started in the industry?
IAmJamesDeen223 karma2014-06-26 02:00:03 UTC
i have no idea who likes me or why but i ain't gonna be sad about it
i always wanted to be in the adult industry. i sought it out. pretty much just kept asking people until someone knew someone who knew someone who knew someone who put me in a movie
summbitch62 karma2014-06-26 01:04:21 UTC
Didja know I have teen girls try to sneak into my sex toy shop to take pictures next to your replicas and try to post them to Instagram and FB as some nouveau status scavenger hunt?
Do you feel like you personally have influenced sexuality (with the help of tumblr and internet access) even a bit for our future ladies who are now currently girls and young adults? If so, where do you ultimately wish to see sex(uality) acceptance going in the next 3 years?
Also yay to Saturday.
IAmJamesDeen76 karma2014-06-26 02:37:37 UTC
i did not. that is pretty funny
i hope if i have it has been in a positive light
equality and respect would be a nice end goal.

i once had sex with a 54 year old for a milf site. i don't know how old some of these legends who come back are but i also have never really asked. the only reason i remember 54 is because it was on her test and at the time the format made the age the first thing you saw
