Crossover Porn Star James Deen Tells How Getting Drunk With His Landlord Led to the Best Rental Ever

New, 33 comments

James Deen (NSFW) is a nice Jewish boy from Pasadena and also one of the most famous adult film actors going these days. In addition to having sex on camera for money, he also acts on camera for money--he recently shot the Bret Easton Ellis film The Canyons with Lindsay Lohan. For Renters Week, he kindly shared a rental tale with us:

"I haven't actually rented very many homes. three is the exact number. only one of them was a good experience. I was searching for a new place to live because the place i was renting had a cracked foundation and was literally sinking into the ground. i utilized the website westside rentals and found a really cool looking house. here is the problem, it was being rented out by the owner not a company. my previous cracked foundation sinking house experience was also from an owner. needless to say i was very nervous.

"i show up to look at the house and it was immaculate. built with love, well maintained, clean, unique, fairly priced. everything a young jewish boy could look for in a rental property. the owner was there. we spoke at length and at some point we started drinking. i can't remember exactly why. i think i commented on the built in wine rack and that inspired him to start pouring various types of booze into me. we became friendly and built a relationship this night. it made both of us much more comfortable engaging into this rental agreement with one another.

"looking back on it, i think the owner was a genius. because of this experience i always had extra respect for the home. i was not shy to call him when there were issues. i WANTED to pay my rent on time. we never had a dispute about anything. due to this original meeting i felt as if i was renting from a friend, and the longer i lived there the greater the friendship grew and eventually it felt like i was renting from family."
