James Deen aka Jimmy Deen was born on February 07, 1986 in Pasadena, CA. He got his nickname at the age of 12 due to the way he smoked. In high school he listened to an interview with Porn Star Jenna Jameson. When a guy asked Jenna on the show how he could become a performer, she said that he needed to be able to masturbate in a room full of 20 of his friends. Taking Jennas advice to heart, James began having sex at parties and in clubs. While James attended community college, he decided to enter the adult film industry.
