Adult film performer Justin Stone came forward this week with accusations of forced drug use, sexual harassment, and rape against BoyCrush studio owner Bryan Schwandt.
In a tear-filled video posted to his Twitter page, Stone claims he was given drugs and alcohol before being sexually assaulted by Schwandt on the set of a BoyCrush production:
THE TRUTH ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! STOP THE LIES STOP SUPPORTING THAT COMPANY NO ONE SHOULD BE SCARED!!! I will not let this go I will get justice for those do not let another model be affected by him Bryan all I have to ask is why me? pic.twitter.com/H3l5yDQP8V

But it doesn’t stop there.
Stone also says he was made to believe that if he didn’t repeatedly have sex with Schwandt he would not receive payments or be hired for future video shoots. In a series of tweets, he shares his experiences:
Stone is now the third adult film performer to come forward in recent weeks with these sorts of accusations against Schwandt. Last April, performers Kadence Pinder and Ethan Steele both made similar claims against the BoyCrush producer.
Schwandt has not yet responded to Stone’s comments, though in the past he has admitted to sleeping with models who later accused him of rape.
It should not come as a surprise that when you present your body as a commodity to be used and leveraged for personal gain, then those in power will seek to use it as such.
Rather than relying on an amorphous exchange of butt for career advancement, perhaps reduce the bargain to writing to dispel any confusion as to the price to be paid.
I just love the trolls blaming the victim here. How is it voluntary if one is told that one has to put out to get a job or get ahead in a job? Would that be appropriate in your profession? Assuming you have one other than troll? If that happened to your mother, would that be acceptable to you?
Inappropriate in ANY ‘profession’… my legal advice when offered that choice … would be to immediately leave that toxic employment whilst reserving right to commence civil action for wrongful dismissal…
It’s not acceptable at all – but I also wouldn’t agree to go along with it for the same reason
Justin Stone looks like he’s at the most in his early twenties. This guy is very young and naïve. He’s prime target for vultures like Bryan Schwandt. Justin isn’t his first victim. This scumbag Bryan is getting away with rape. I wonder why he hasn’t been arrested yet. As for Justin I can only imagine
how he got sucked into porn at such a young age. Schwandt most likely
manipulated him. For Justin’s sake I hope he gets out of doing porn. It’s only
going to get worse for him.
a brave and courageous boy
@happiness17 it is because the victims are young men and not women. It also doesn’t help they were doing gay porn. They will get justice but it is going to be a long road.
Hi! Friendly Queerty comment moderator here.
I have deleted a couple of comments from this thread that engage in victim-blaming. Please know that these kinds of comments will continue to be removed, as they violate our comment policy.
Good, very unacceptable to blame victims
Let me guess. One of their names starts with a SF. So predictable.
Query comment moderator: what is Queerty’s definition of ‘consent’? That is the unexplored, but CENTRAL and CRITICAL, issue in this story. Surely Queerty has a definition. Because they must get CONSENT to report quotes. Start with that definition. And start a conversation about the concept and practice if consent in other parts of our lives.
And on that note, what part of the comment policy covers victim-blaming? And are we confusing victim-blaming with healthy skepticism? I don’t know what country this website or its participants are from, but I’m from the United States where we have a policy of “innocent until proven guilty.” For those of you who don’t understand what this means: when someone is accused of doing something bad, we assume that they didn’t do that bad thing until the person involved has a chance to speak on their own behalf and until we see proof that the bad thing was done. (Am I making sense?)
While I agree that it’s important for those who have been victimized by sexual abuse to come forward and speak, the mere existence of an accusation doesn’t automatically mean that it’s true. There are multiple sides to a story. Accusations like these ruin careers, shatter families, and lock people away; they shouldn’t be treated lightly, and we shouldn’t be in a rush to take a side because we’re eager to virtue signal to each other. The accused also has rights, and there are always multiple sides to a story.
The fact remains that this man consciously chose to engage in these actions. His comments paint a picture of someone who consented to an activity only to the extent that he would get an end result or be able to complete an objective. At the end of the day, regret is not rape.
And that’s my two cents. 🙂 I guess you can decide that this comment is a violation of your (ambiguous and ever-changing) policies if you must, but since the whole drama around Facebook has happened, I wouldn’t be surprised if you did at this point; the bar for civil dissent has been really low on the internet lately. (It’s actually part of the reason why Trump good elected.)
Victim-blaming falls under both the “umbrella language” and the “mean-spirited” aspects of our comment policy.
If you’d like to engage in “healthy skepticism”, you’re welcome to do that elsewhere. I will continue to delete comments that suggest a victim caused or facilitated their own abuse, full stop.
RIGHT ON!! Thank you!
This “RIGHT ON” is meant for Queerty for taking a stand and removing the victim blamers!
Justin, you have been so brave to share this,nyoung man. I hope you get the non-judgemental emotional support you are needing.
I don’t know what to believe but I will say this. When a bunch of random guys that you slept with later accuse you of rape something’s definitely not right.
Sadly I think these twinks are looked more at as objects and not full human beings.
I feel so bad for the pup. I hope justice is served and the young man finds some peace.
I hope these claims go to trial. People often ask alleged victims “why didn’t you come forward sooner?” Well, there are now three people who have come forward within a short time of these events allegedly happening to each of them.
And as for people who doubt that the justice system can draw a distinction between a gay-porn actor’s job and his personal life, I propose that they brush up on Jeff Stryker’s successful lawsuit to obtain custody of the child he (accidentally?) fathered. If a court could decide that being raised by a gay-porn star — and they did not come much bigger than Stryker (pun intended!) — was in the best interests of a child, it suggests that some courts CAN draw such a distinction.
In his defense, Justin has one of the most perfect twink butts I’ve ever seen. What I would do for a week at a Caribbean resort with that boy.
or withdraw consent or “consent” is under duress or…
Negotiation is not consent nor is being neked in someone else’s bed sober, high, or drunk.
Providing alcohol to some one under age and providing a controlled substance can easily move the needle from harassment to assault. Ask America’s dad about that.
Let’s look at the complete idiocy and viciousness of victim blaming in this situation.
If you own an ice-cream store, and somebody comes in and steals ice cream from you then defends it by saying. “Well they already sell ice-cream so you can’t really STEAL ice-cream from them”.
That is literally the exact same thing as trying to say “Well they are a porn star, they have sex for money, so this wasn’t a rape.”
You may want to ask yourself what is going on in your head if that is the opinion you’re trying to push.
The obvious difference being Justin consented (under the influence albeit) then withdrew consent.
In your scenario, the correct corollary would be that the ice cream store first gave away willingly free ice cream, later regretted it, then called the police on those who took the free ice cream. The people did nothing wrong.
I really tried to see the pain this young man has suffered but I just feel little sympathy for him and other young men who would volunteer to perform in adult films. I would totally be on the side of a young man who is a college student with above average grades and work part time as a waiter to support himself.
@Castle: Should feeling sympathy for someone who-potentially-has-been-raped really depend on that individual’s status in life (college student earning A’s, check) and line of work (part-time waiter, check)? It seems that you’ve set a rather high standard for feeling empathy for others. #Matthew25:34-46
Don’t twist my words Chris. I just express what a lot of other people may have already felt: its easier to sympathize with a decent, hard working young man than someone who… how do I put it? who has less than noble aspirations.
@tnguy The more reasonable corollary would be cutting off someone at an “open bar” and they continue to serve themselves.
@Castle chris’s interpretation is a reasonable one. Doing porn in legal and the models are entitled to all workplace protections. Anyone in the nation, no matter of their status, is entitled to be protected under the law. So it isn’t okay to randomly shoot the local drug dealer, just like it isn’t okay to randomly shoot the valedictorian.
@CastleSF. No one twisted your words dumb###. You just said he doesn’t deserve your sympathy because he works in porn.
If this twitter dialogue proves to be authentic, I am just speechless. How does a young man learn to speak like that? So uncivil and demeaning.
By your logic, any woman who goes to a party and takes a drink has consented to sex?
Is that seriously what you’re trying to say?
I’m just here for the comments…
Me too. (Lol.)
What on earth are you talking about? You’re spewing homophobia on here, and it’s not cool at all. Stop making blanket statements about queer/LGBTQ people and get some help!
Very brave of you, Justin, it’s time for all of you to raise up against this man!!! Take him to court!! I pray he pays for what he’s done!
this problem can happen in any profession, but I think in the case of porn studios comes up because these companies do not have the power to silence the employees as would the most non-porn large companies.
