At a time when testing wasn’t a regular part of the industry. Also, I doubt his crossover was the first time he had sex with a man.

I don't know.
John Holmes life kind of went for a shit show before he crossed over. I think he was shunned from straight porn when he crossed over.
Do you remember the Wonderland Killings?

I suspect there was more to taking here own life than the social media stuff. That being said, I can't imagine a porn star being worried about her reputation, so i'm obviously prejudiced.

I think its the bullying mentality of social media. I understand you don't consider a porn stars reputation even a point, but in her world it probably had some meaning.

He called your post Horseshit. What don't you understand?

You're clueless as usual. You're the biggest bully on this forum. It figures you'd take this tack on this news story.

Now now, don't be so sarcastic against Jerry.

When he reads 'Love your neighbour as yourself,' he looks up 'neighbour' in the dictionary, accepts the narrowest interpretation, befriends the neighbour next door, and tells the person two doors down 'you're not my neighbour so F off.'

From what I’ve read about her I doubt it was the bullying itself that did it. She was close either way. This just wound up being the last straw.

She could have just said no and let it be at that. It is her body and she can do whatever she wants to with it, no one is disputing that.

She wrote

Quote:

whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXNews , you’re shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know.

It is discriminatory and if i change it around but keep the theme of what she said, it can be shown she was being discriminatory. If i were to change out the underlined part you would see where i'm coming from.

AUGUST AMES' DEATH: Twitter bullying of porn queen explored

August Ames hanged herself in December.INSTAGRAM
The autopsy found porn star August Ames died of asphyxiation last December about a week before Christmas.
The 23-year-old Canadian sexxx-rated superstar hanged herself in a park in the suburban San Fernando Valley, police said.
But a new podcast, The Last Days of August, is fingering Twitter trolls and a rival porn queen as the bile-spewers who put the Nova Scotia native in the grave.
“I lost the woman I love to a bunch of people’s stupid opinions on social media,” her husband, porn producer Kevin Moore, is quoted in the audio as saying. “So am I just supposed to roll over?”
Tragic August Ames hanged herself in December after being tormented relentlessly on Twitter. An upcoming podcast looks at her life and death. INSTAGRAM
So he turned to British journalist Jon Ronson to find out what really happened.
Ames, whose real name was Mercedes Grabowski, started in California’s X-rated industry when she was 19 and was soon a legitimate porn star, garnering more than 600,000 Twitter followers.
She appeared in nearly 300 scenes including appearances in Bikini Sex Dolls, Cute Little Babysitter 5, and Interracial Surrender 6.
But when she made controversial comments about gay porn actors that triggered social justice Twitter warriors, Ames was attacked relentlessly.
On Dec. 3, 2017 she tweeted: “Whichever (lady) performer is replacing me tomorrow for @EroticaXNews, you’re shooting with a guy who has shot gay porn, just to let cha know. BS is all I can say. Do agents really not care about who they’re representing? #ladirect I do my homework for my body.”

Bisexual Ames declared in the wake of the brouhaha that she loved the gay community, but she still was pummeled on social media as homophobic.
Two days later, she was dead.
In a media release promoting the podcast, Ronson said he soon heard “rumours and secrets hinting at a very different story — something mysterious and unexpected and terrible.”
Among those he interviewed was starlet Jessica Drake, who the dead woman’s husband blamed as behind the mobbing.
Porn rival Jessica Drake was accused of causing the tidal wave of rage against August Ames. INSTAGRAM
In tears, Drake says on the podcast: “Somebody has to help me.”
At the Adult Video News Awards in March, Moore told Rolling Stone that the porno biz holds a tractor-trailer load of dirty secrets.
“The business side doesn’t want to acknowledge it because it’s not sexy. The industry wants to stick its head in the sand and just hope it all goes away,” Moore said.
The Last Days of August will be available on Audible on Jan. 4, 2019.
