The Schmooze

Behind the Scenes With James Deen

“Doc Johnson” doesn’t sound Jewish. But the nation’s biggest manufacturer of sex toys is owned and run by the father-and-son team of Ron and Chad Braverman, and July’s Los Angeles magazine delivers a behind-the-scenes look at their “empire of rubber” — and the Jewish porn star they’ve enlisted to make it even bigger.

Fly-on-the-wall style, the story records the action as adult-film actor James Deen — who famously told Haaretz last year that he “still has money invested from his bar-mitzvah” — inks a deal with the Bravermans to replicate a certain part of his anatomy for an estimated $20,000 fee. Deen is the closest thing to a male superstar in adult films; in a Nightline segment last October, the 26-year-old actor, who is said to have appeared in some 4,000 X-rated films, was described as enjoying a “disturbing” popularity among teenage girls,” Los Angeles reports.
