In no special order, we're going to recap Instinct Magazine's Top 18 stories of 2018.
This subject actually made our Top 18 list of 2018 three times. If it made the list of most clicked stories, we're going to share it. With the Kevin Spacey case coming back into the news, will the allegations against Topher Dimaggio? You can search our database for Topher and see we have mentioned all of these allegations toward him in several posts. Here are just three. What do you think? Moot point? Will this be looked into again? #MeToo skips over LGBT?
The #metoo movement has primarily focused on the women's side of things when it comes to battling sexual harassment and assault in and out of the work place, with the exception of a few instances revolving around gay men in entertainment (Kevin Spacey and Bryan Singer for example.)
This has now trickled its way into the gay porn world, where performer Tegan Zayne has just accused fellow performer Topher DiMaggio of raping him. He spoke about this in a lengthy post on Twitter that highlights an issue in their part of the industry that often goes unnoticed.
Tegan talked about a story that related to a scene they both did for a studio called Cockyboys. According to Tegan, Topher pressured him into having sex the night before the scene while they were sharing the same quarters.
Tegan said that after the incident he felt “belittled and degraded” and “told how I’m such a girl.”
“I’ve seen a lot of stories come out about the metoo thing, but it’s (sic) feels like no one cares about the male victims, or the sex workers. As someone else said “rap doesn’t exist in this line of wrk”, and it couldn’t be more true," Tegan exclaimed.
Topher denies this, as website QueerMeNow (NSFW) reached out to him for comment to which he said "“He’s crazy and twists stories. He was so happy to film with me even the next day. It’s sad. I’m going to give it any attention.”
