I felt this deserved its own post. Did some more digging and found this MySpace post, which appears to confirm that the accusations were in fact true:
Friday, January 11, 2008Needless to say, I'm really quite bothered now. Everything people have said here and on the duplicate post I made to my LJ has suggested that this kind of thing is completely out of the ordinary for Kink.com. That's how they've always seemed to me as well, so this still seems quite surprising to me.
kayden420 leaves the adult industry
Current mood: sore
hey there, so after 2 shoots gone bad (a company that is using my work that didnt pay me and a company that under paid me and beat me) i have decided to no longer work in the adult industry. it isnt what it used to be to me, seems like as time goes on i see the truth in the industry and i dont like it. don't get me wrong the people in the industry are great and most of them are my friends.
yesterday was my last scene, after coming home my body was so weak i couldnt do anything but lay in bed. i couldnt sleep do to the tourment i took earlier in the day i even had bad dreams no joke. not to mention rope burn, caning marks, my breast were beat so bad that i have lumps in both of them and i have a bruise that runs horizontal across my ENTIRE lower back .i was pounded to the point where it feels like i was punched in the uterus (ladies you know that pain im talking about).
im still going to run my work and produce content for it, but no more films.
im going back to working the 9 to 5 baby!
so after 2 doctors appointments and opinions.. i have deep tissue bruising all over my body, and as for my breast both docs have said they feel many contunsions in them and both felt something that they were both concerned that they found a mass in my left breast and i had to get a ultrasound of both breasts :( as for my bad dreams that have been haunting me i have been given ambien to help me sleep. when i had gotten home this afternoon and had taken a zanny bar and for the first time in 2 days i felt great none stop laughing kinda like the way it is when you smoke for your first time and then i passed the fuck out and just recently woke up and needless to say i started writing this about 20 minutes ago... :)
Unless what happened is that she consented to it all and didn't like it later -- but even there, the kind of thing she's describing really doesn't seem to me like the sort of thing a person signs up for and then backs out of. Heavy SM is usually something people know they're getting into when they sign up for.
I had deep bruising from a scene once, because I was new and neither I nor my tops knew what I could actually handle. It was miserable for me... but the thing was, I didn't walk away feeling that no one cared. They cared very much, and watched my healing like a hawk, offered me the use of a hot tub as I healed, etc. Ms. Faye doesn't say here exactly how they reacted or responded, so maybe she's just feeling spooked, but even that raises at least a small red flag to me. If you're someone's top and you go too far and they're not OK, it's your *responsibility* to do as much to set things right as possible.
