sexual assault gay film industry

Rape allegations made on Twitter

Teegan Zayne, a gay adult film performer, has accused fellow performer and Andrew Christian model Topher DiMaggio of raping him in a detailed post on Twitter. The post illuminates an issue in the industry that is not often discussed and generally kept away from the public.

In Zayne’s post, he shares specifics about a scene the two men did for Cockboys. According to Zayne, he was pressured by DiMaggio into having sex the night before the scheduled scene while the two shared the same quarters.

Zayne stated that after the incident he felt “belittled and degraded” and “told how I’m such a girl.”

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

Website portal QueerMeNow.Net (Not Safe for Work) contacted DiMaggio for a response. He said: “He’s crazy and twists stories. He was so happy to film with me even the next day. It’s sad. I’m going to give it any attention.”

As reported by ST8UPGAYP***,  (at the time of this post) “Topher DiMaggio has not responded to a request for comment. CockyBoys tells Str8UpGayP*rn that Tegan Zayne did not tell them about the alleged rape the day after, and his note today is the first time they’ve heard the allegation.”

Tegan Zayne did tweet about the alleged rape two months ago (see below), but clear details of his story weren’t fully explained until today.

The issue of rape in the adult film industry comes at a time when the #metoo campaign has brought to light a number of allegations against mainstream actors. It will be interesting to see what may evolve as a result of DiMaggio’s allegations.
