Porn star Tegan Zayne accuses co-star Topher DiMaggio of rape

On Sunday, porn star Tegan Zayne penned a long Twitter post that accused fellow adult performer Topher DiMaggio of rape.

He says he did it to address a serious issue in the gay adult industry that is often ignored.

In the post, Zayne tells a story revolving around a scene both actors filmed for Cocky Boys two years ago. He claims DiMaggio strongly pressured him into having sex the night before they filmed the scene. Zayne says he felt “belittled and degraded” by the experience and was “told how I’m such a girl.”

“I’ve seen a lot of stories come out about the metoo thing,” he writes, “but it’s (sic) feels like no one cares about the male victims, or the sex workers. As someone else said, ‘rape doesn’t exist in this line of wrk’, and it couldn’t be more true.”

DiMaggio denies this ever happened.

“He’s crazy and twists stories,” he reportedly told QueerMeNow. “He was so happy to film with me even the next day. It’s sad. I’m not going to give it any attention.”

Here’s Zayne’s lengthy twitter note:

    While I’m really sorry you felt belittled and degraded…cos being strongly pressured could be seen as rape….. the part about them telling you never to deep throat again is prolly all on you….

    Another strong point on consent. Even though they were scheduled to have sex the next day ,it doesn’t make it right he literally forced himself on him .

    Rape is a bit too strong a word for what happened here. Coercion isn’t rape if you’re not under duress. And from the sound of this tale, there was no duress. Tegan is branding Topher as a rapist simply because he was too much of a puss to say NO and actually mean it.

      Mandy, he said No! That should have been enough for him to be left alone. Sometimes people say no and the sex still happens because it’s someone who’s in a position of higher authority but still without the consent of the individual. It’s still rape. He said no, I don’t want to.

    MANDY’s denial of Tegan’s claims is PRECISELY the problem here. It’s almost like we’ve hired Mandy to be the living example of how men, gay men, and sex workers are slighted, ignored, and shut out when rape is made public.

    And “no” means “no” — Coercion IS rape and rape IS coercion. That’s how it is judged in legal terms. To dither over the volume, timing or impact of “no” is Old Testament law, and essentially green-lighting abuse.

    These are old arguments. I hope a second look will bring the reader into a modern world where all people are created equal, and should never have their equality destroyed by sexual or other means.
