from www.laist.com – Continuing from yesterday, Nadya “Octomom” Suleman filmed a solo porn video that was released by Wicked Pictures in June and nominated for four AVN Awards, including Best Celebrity Sex Tape.

Meanwhile, Courtney Stodden was offered a starring role in porn on her 18th birthday from Manwin subsidiaries Digital Playground, Babes, Twistys, Brazzers, and Mofos—which she turned down—but she was in turn rejected by Playboy.

But 2012 was the Year of James Deen. While he’d been featured in GOOD Magazine and ABC News for his massive online (and sometimes underaged) female fandom, it was his casting as the male lead opposite Lindsay Lohan in the Kickstarter-backed “The Canyons” that triggered multiple lists, the stalking by paparazzi, and profiles in GQ, Interview, The Hollywood Reporter, and The Aesthete.

To illustrate how his popularity, a Forbes article titled “The Hardest Thing About Being A Male Porn Star” with his photo generated 300,000 views and was one of “The Most Popular Forbes Woman Stories of 2012,” and his Ikea Monkey impression went viral on Tumblr with 53,000+ notes in just two weeks.

There was even speculation about “Which Lucky Reporter Slept with James Deen?” He became a public face for the anti-Measure B effort, hosting a Reddit AMA with off-topic questions like, “Do you consider ‘Lemon Stealing Whores’ to be your greatest artistic achievement?”

Unlike recent mainstream crossover star Sasha Grey, he continues to perform in the world of pornography while branching out with a Doc Johnson sex toy line, a reality show called “Amateur America,” and a newly-launched “James Deen Loves Food” web series featuring restaurant reviews, the world’s most expensive burrito, and ordering everything from the Del Taco and Burger King menus. During next week’s Adult Entertainment Expo, he will be meeting his “Deenagers” at his own booth and answering questions at an hour-long fan seminar.
