Ron Jeremy To Be Excluded From All Future Exxxotica Events
The porn fan event Exxxotica has announced via their Twitter feed that AVN Hall of Famer Ron Jeremy will not be welcome at any of their future events, saying, "As of right now and moving forward, Ron Jeremy will no longer be appearing at any of our events....He will not be at our events or host hotels in any capacity. Period.”
Cam model Ginger Banks speaks above in this YouTube video shown above about the allegations of other adult performers about being raped, groped, sexually assaulted and/or otherwise touched without their consent by Jeremy on porn sets, at nightclubs and at industry events like Exxxotica. Porn star Ginger Lynn claims to have been raped by Jeremy in a 2004 interview. Porn journalist Lynsey G. mentions being groped non-consensually by Jeremy in her book and separately, actress Carrie Keagan also mentions being groped non-consensually by Jeremy in her book. Banks also provides links to other YouTube videos where you can see Jeremy grope porn stars Tanya Tate, Allie Haze, Raven Bay and other women and the consent in the situations shown appears somewhat murky at best.
Jeremy gave the following statements to AVN about this all: "If I’ve offended anybody I feel bad....I’m not in great shape. I’m old and I’m chunky but there’s still women who drive great distances to see me at these events and a lot of them or their boyfriends request a booby signing. If I ever made a mistake and misread or misjudged what I was doing, then I apologize.”
He went on to say: "In all fairness anybody whose ever been in the booth with me knows that I get grabbed more than the girls do, but I’m a guy and I happen to like it...I’ll stand by my record in general alongside anybody else’s. I’ve never went to jail, never beat anybody, never had any [district attorney] take any case against me. The living proof is my face. It’s never been punched and there’s mostly boyfriends in line with their girlfriends and wives. If I was being too forward or too stupid I would have more black eyes than a panda bear. But that never happens. I’ve never been punched out by a boyfriend ever in my 30-some odd years and I’ve signed thousands of boobies."
