Heeb wrote about Deen: “James Deen has starred in more than 2,000 adult films over the last five years. And with impressive awards like male performer of the year at the 2009 AVN Awards (he was the youngest male ever to win that prize) to his (porn) name, it’s safe to say that Deen and his 10-inch penis aren't just dicking around.”
Deen’s girlfriend, Joanna Angel, was herself named to the list in 2005.
“I think it's kind of cute — and it's very evident that Heeb has very good taste in Jewish porn stars,” she said.
Deen joins Adam Busch, Alexander Gould, Gal Gadot, Paulo Costanzo, Rachel Grady, Robert Siegel, Yoav Shamir, Rodney Rothman, and Ry Russo Young in the film and television category of the Heeb 100.
Heeb Magazine began in Brooklyn in 2001. It covers arts, culture and poltics for “young, urban and influential” Jews.
