I was raped by ‘porn king’ Ron Jeremy in front of mates in a packed nightclub – he’s still tormenting me 20 years on 0 224

HE was once the toast of Hollywood, adored by a legion of fans and raking in £7.5million as the King of Porn.

But behind Ron Jeremy’s onscreen antics lurked a “monster” – who is now in jail awaiting trial on 34 counts of rape and serious sexual assault.

Ahead of a new Channel 4 documentary, which airs tonight, Brit Lianne Young – who has testified against the 69-year-old star – reveals she was raped by Jeremy in a crowded nightclub as she partied with friends in 2000.

Despite the attack being witnessed by friends, she was persuaded not to report Jeremy, told “that’s just what Ron does”.

“Ron was very protected by the industry and I was told the police were in his pockets, so there was no point in reporting it,” she tells The Sun.

“Back then people worshipped Ron, men treated him like a God. He was considered to be untouchable. But he was a monster.”

The 47-year-old from Bristol is one of several victims who tell their horrific stories in Porn King: The Rise and Fall of Ron Jeremy.

Another is a former porn star raped on her 21st birthday, and a devout Christian attacked in a bathroom after 26 years of friendship.

Single mum Lianne – who believes there are “thousands” more yet to come forward – was 23 and working in the adult industry when she went on a girl’s night out to the House of Blues club in LA.

She recalls: “I was drinking a bottle of beer, watching a band, the girls were talking amongst themselves and I remember being pushed over the table, dropping my drink and suddenly I was being raped.

“I managed to get my arm around me and smack him in the face and then I screamed, ‘What the f*** are you doing?’

“His face was completely expressionless. He just zipped up his trousers and melted into the crowd.

“I was in such a state, crying and crying. I felt completely traumatised.”

Lianne has waited over two decades to see justice done and says it was a “joyful moment” when Jeremy was finally arrested in June 2020

But the sicko is still putting her through a “living hell” after demanding different juries for each of the 21 victims and having the trial postponed amid claims he is too ill to attend.

“Ron has carried on abusing us for the last two years by delay after delay,” she says. “I’ve been a prisoner of his actions for 20 years and he is still controlling us. It’s been horrendous.”

‘He was grotesque’

Jeremy – real name Ron Hyatt – launched his adult career in 1979 and was famed for his overlong manhood and being constantly “up for anything.”

He holds the record for the most appearances in adult movies with over 2,000 starring roles, and in 2007 was paid a reported £150,000 to take part in a world record ‘gang bang’ with another 550 men and one woman.

He had a reputation for poor personal hygiene, with co-stars complaining he smelt and insisting he showered before scenes.

Lianne says: “There was a joke in porn, there are three things you shouldn’t do – animals, underage, and Ron Jeremy.

“There was no way I’d ever do a scene with Ron Jeremy. He was grotesque.”

Former porn actress Ginger Lynn, who believes she is the first person to be raped by Jeremy, tells the documentary he attacked her in a Hawaiian hotel in 1983 while they were filming a movie.

Lynn was engaged to another male co-star and had been celebrating her 21st birthday with her fiance on the beach but was attacked in the bathroom when she returned to change.

“He came up from behind, held my hands down on the side of the sink, pulled down my bathing suit, and began f*****g me,” she says. “The more I said no, the harder he effs me and the more he’s into it.

“He covered my mouth. In the end you resign yourself to the fact you’re being raped. I wish I’d screamed and bit and punched harder but I was scared and I didn’t know any better.”

The day after the attack, to add to her horror, Ginger had to film sex scenes with Jeremy.

She kept the attack to herself, believing as a sex worker, she wouldn’t be believed. When she did accuse him in 2004, he replied: “I thought you wanted it.”

Backlash

The allegations caused a massive backlash from fans who accused the actress of lying. There was even an online poll asking whether fans believed Ginger or Jeremy.

After her own assault, in 2000, Lianne quit the adult movie industry.

“I was British and I was in America so I was scared and I was told not to go to the police so there was nothing I could do,” she says.

“Nobody was helping me. I was committed to two other contracts which I really struggled to finish and then I had to go to Vegas and sign my autograph.

“That last day, surrounded by fans thinking they could touch you because you’re a famous sex symbol, made me feel sick so I came home. It destroyed me.”

Red carpet assault

As Jeremy’s fame grew he cultivated a comic, goofy persona and was swamped by fans wherever he went, with women asking him to sign their bare boobs and men asking him to grope their girlfriends.

His notoriety opened the door to the mainstream, seeing him appear on his own reality show and even launch a range of merchandise, including rum, T-shirts and a sex toy.

His status meant the growing number of accusations of assault against him were swept under the carpet.

“He was an icon to millions,” says Lianne. “Every man in the world who ever watched porn admired Ron Jeremy.

“Everyone knew what he was up to and that was ignored. It seems to be that in the sex industry, you’re allowed to be raped. And it’s not right.”

Alana Evans, now president of the Performer Union, says she has a dossier of testimonies against Jeremy and was also assaulted by him at a red carpet, when he penetrated her with his fingers.

“We were conditioned to think this was normal. When he assaulted me I didn’t even see it as a crime,” she says.

“He was comfortable with his behaviour because no one stopped him. With Ron it was going to get worse because he felt entitled.”

Bathroom terror of close pal

As time went on, the alleged attacks moved from opportunistic to increasingly violent, with women being attacked in car parks or while inebriated.

One woman claims she was given a drink that made her violently sick and unable to stand before being assaulted as she vomited.

Charity Carson, a Christian who had a platonic relationship with the porn star for 26 years, claims he locked her in his hotel bathroom before attacking her.

“I fought him and he’s trying to unravel my clothes, put my hand on his penis and he’s trying with all his might to rape me,” she says.

“I was screaming and his mind was to rape me.”

She escaped but says she was left shocked and her “world fell apart”. She adds: “It was betrayal because I was such good friends with him for so many years.”

Arrest for 34 attacks

Jeremy’s world finally came crashing down in 2017, when YouTuber Ginger Banks posted a 10 minute clip detailing the many accusations of rape and sexual assault against him.

The LA Times investigated the allegations and US prosecutors followed suit.

Jeremy was arrested and in August 2021, charged with a total of 34 counts of rape and sexual assault against 21 women.

He denies all charges and in March, the trial was postponed pending a mental health examination, as Jeremy was apparently incoherent and unable to recognise his lawyer.

As well as 20 years of trauma caused by the attack, Lianne has battled near-fatal sepsis four years ago which left her temporarily paralysed. She now has a neurological condition which can be triggered by stress.

Reliving the attack has made the last two years of her life a “living hell”.

She says: “It’s been such a traumatic experience. I want to move on and live my life, but I’ve been unable to have any life for two years.

“My [28-year-old] son has been the most phenomenal support and an absolute rock. I couldn’t have got through it without him.”

Lianne, a trained counsellor, is now using her platform to call for education for young girls who want to go into the sex industry. She also works with police to help sex workers who become victims of abuse.

“You’ve now got 15-year-old girls aspiring to a career on OnlyFans,” she says.

“To me, OnlyFans is an online pimp, taking a percentage of takings from exploited girls.

“There are still serious problems in the sex industry. There’s still a casting couch, rapes, stalking and girls on sites like OnlyFans are also putting themselves up for abuse online, which can be so damaging to your mental health.

Managing Relationships While Working in the Adult Industry 0 130

Navigating romantic relationships can be complex, and this complexity often intensifies when one or both partners are involved in the adult industry. In this guide, we’ll explore practical strategies for maintaining healthy relationships, fostering open communication, and addressing challenges that may arise when one’s profession involves adult entertainment.

1. Open Communication:

Communication is the foundation of any healthy relationship, especially when working in the adult industry. Establishing open and honest communication channels helps build trust and understanding between partners.

Example: Provide communication tips, such as setting aside dedicated time for discussions, creating a judgment-free zone, and actively listening to each other’s concerns.

2. Establishing Boundaries:

Clearly defining and respecting boundaries is crucial for both partners. Discussing comfort levels, expectations, and limits ensures that both individuals feel secure in the relationship.

Example: Offer guidance on how to have constructive conversations about boundaries, emphasizing the importance of mutual consent and compromise.

3. Building a Support System:

Developing a robust support system is essential. This includes friends, family, or colleagues who understand and respect the nature of the profession and can offer support during challenging times.

Example: Share stories of couples who have successfully built strong support systems and provide tips on how to nurture these networks.

4. Trust and Transparency:

Trust is a cornerstone of any relationship but becomes even more critical when working in the adult industry. Being transparent about one’s work and addressing concerns promptly helps foster trust between partners.

Example: Illustrate the positive outcomes of trust-building actions, such as being open about work schedules, discussing potential challenges, and offering reassurance.

5. Educating Partners:

Sometimes, misunderstandings arise due to lack of knowledge. Educating partners about the adult industry, its dynamics, and dispelling common myths can promote a better understanding of the profession.

Example: Create a guide for individuals to share with their partners, explaining the realities of the adult industry, emphasizing the consensual nature of the work, and addressing misconceptions.

6. Coping with External Judgments:

Working in the adult industry often comes with societal stigma. Discuss strategies for coping with external judgments and maintaining a strong sense of self-worth within the relationship.

Example: Share empowering stories of individuals who have successfully navigated societal stigma, emphasizing self-love and resilience.

7. Seeking Professional Guidance:

Relationships can benefit from professional guidance. Encouraging couples to seek counseling or therapy when faced with challenges can provide a neutral space for communication and support.

Example: Highlight success stories of couples who have sought therapy to strengthen their relationship and provide resources for finding qualified professionals.

8. Planning for the Future:

Discussing future plans is vital for any couple. Addressing long-term goals, such as career transitions or family planning, helps both partners feel secure and invested in the relationship.

Example: Offer advice on creating a shared vision for the future, navigating career changes, and making joint decisions that align with both partners’ aspirations.

Conclusion:

Successfully managing relationships while working in the adult industry requires a combination of open communication, trust-building, and a proactive approach to addressing challenges. By fostering understanding, establishing clear boundaries, and seeking support when needed, couples can build strong, resilient relationships that thrive despite the unique demands of the profession. Remember, every relationship is unique, and adapting these strategies to suit individual needs is key to a fulfilling and supportive partnership.

Understanding and Navigating the World of Online Adult Content 0 139

The internet has transformed the way we access and consume information, including adult content. Navigating this vast and often complex digital landscape requires understanding, responsibility, and respect. In this guide, we’ll explore key aspects of online adult content, helping you make informed choices while ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience.

1. Diverse Platforms and Formats:

Online adult content is not confined to a single platform or format. From websites and streaming services to interactive content, understanding the variety available is essential.

Example: Differentiate between mainstream adult websites, premium subscription services, and emerging interactive platforms, providing a glimpse into the diverse options.

2. Privacy and Security:

Respecting privacy is crucial when engaging with adult content online. This includes understanding the importance of secure connections, anonymous browsing, and being mindful of personal data.

Example: Provide tips on using virtual private networks (VPNs), secure payment methods, and the importance of reading privacy policies on adult websites.

3. Responsible Consumption:

Consuming adult content responsibly involves being aware of ethical considerations. This includes consent, avoiding illegal content, and understanding the potential impact on relationships.

Example: Share stories or case studies illustrating the importance of responsible consumption and the potential consequences of engaging with non-consensual or illegal content.

4. Age Verification and Restrictions:

Most countries have regulations regarding the access to adult content, often requiring age verification. Understanding and complying with these regulations is vital for legal and ethical reasons.

Example: Provide a step-by-step guide on age verification processes on different platforms and emphasize the importance of adherence to legal requirements.

5. Impact on Mental Health:

Consuming adult content can have varying effects on mental health. It’s crucial to be aware of the potential impact and seek support if needed.

Example: Discuss the potential consequences of excessive consumption, addiction, or unrealistic expectations, and provide resources for mental health support.

6. Consent and Ethical Production:

Understanding the concept of consent extends to the production of adult content. Ethical consumption involves supporting platforms and creators that prioritize the well-being and consent of performers.

Example: Showcase initiatives or platforms that prioritize ethical production, emphasize performer rights, and provide fair compensation.

7. Balancing Fantasies with Reality:

Distinguishing between fantasy and reality is important when consuming adult content. Developing a healthy perspective on sexuality involves recognizing the difference between scripted entertainment and real-life relationships.

Example: Share anecdotes or expert opinions on how to maintain a balanced view of sexuality and relationships while consuming adult content.

8. Community and Education:

Online communities and educational resources play a role in promoting healthy discussions about adult content. Engaging with like-minded individuals and staying informed contributes to a positive online experience.

Example: Highlight reputable online forums or educational platforms where individuals can learn more about various aspects of adult content, share experiences, and ask questions.

Conclusion:

Navigating the world of online adult content requires a balanced approach, combining awareness, responsibility, and respect. By understanding the diverse landscape, prioritizing privacy and security, and promoting ethical consumption, individuals can ensure a positive and consensual online experience. Remember, responsible engagement contributes to a healthier digital environment for both consumers and content creators alike.
