Porn star James Deen causes a stir over community college porn lecture in Pasadena

By Ezekiel Hernandez,
The mainstream porn star says he feels persecuted by the reaction to his porn lecture.

This generation's real-life Dirk Diggler, James Deen, caused a rouse at Pasadena City College in Southern California, Wednesday, as the porn star went back to his alma mater to give a lecture on his profession.

Word spread quickly at the medium-sized community college outside of L.A., and caused a convergence of community and media uproar.

According to New York Daily News, Deen was originally scheduled to speak to students in a large auditorium, which would have hosted a large number of students and members of the public. But as word spread of the speaking engagement, members of the administration pulled the plug.

School administrators called the lecture “unauthorized” and a public safety issue.

Ironically, the lecture was put together by the professor of a school-sanctioned course in Humanities, “Navigating Pornography.” The “lecture” was then confined to only the students earning credits for the class.

The Los Angeles Times reports Deen held the lecture in a smaller classroom that was exclusive to the students of the class. Administrators told members of the media that they allowed it because they wanted to respect the professor’s classroom sovereignty.

Deen was taken aback by the reaction to his lecture, saying he felt “persecuted” and “singled out,” according to the Times.

Hugo Schwyzer, the course professor, told the Daily News, “I was proud to offer up James Deen as a role model to the class.”
