An industry icon who recently added the NightMoves® 2014 Best Male Performer award to his impressive list of honors, James Deen’s widespread popularity goes far beyond his work in movies. From participating in the 2015 AIDSWalkLA, to donating 50% of his website proceeds to benefit breast cancer research and awareness this past October, to acting as Chairperson of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC), which provides representation for performers within the adult film industry, Deen’s outreach is proof of his desire to pay his successes forward.

A limited collector’s edition of the box set will also be offered, featuring high-end packaging and bonus gifts. The move to Girlfriends Films provides James Deen Productions with more visibility on an international level, spanning numerous delivery platforms.
