Five men have accused former Andrew Christian model Topher DiMaggio of rape. Because of these accusations, companies are beginning to cut ties with him. The latest to crumble is the Topher DiMaggio FleshJack relationship. The sex toy retailer has pulled the DiMaggio-branded products. DiMaggio is also no longer a FleshJack Boy.
In a statement to Str8UpGayPorn, FleshJack said (link NSFW):
FleshJack has dissolved its relationship with Topher DiMaggio. He is no longer a FleshJack Boy, and we are no longer selling his products. While our interactions with Topher were always professional, we could not ignore the negative experiences concerning him that others have reported. We strive to promote positive sexual experiences for everyone, particularly in the gay community, and our association with Topher was not conducive with that mission.
FleshJack not only used DiMaggio as a spokesmodel, they also previously sold DiMaggio sex toys. The DiMaggio FleshJack product line included the “FleshJack Sensation: Illicit”, an $80 sex toy shaped like DiMaggio’s anal cavity. FleshJack also sold a $60 DeMaggio dildo, modeled after his actual penis. (A combo pack of both the Illicit and the dildo was also sold for $130.)
Now, however, f you search for his page, it just redirects you to the DiMaggio-less FleshJack Boys page. According to Str8UpGayPorn, it was exactly one year ago yesterday that DiMaggio became a FleshJack Boy.
The second person to accuse DiMaggio of rape spoke exclusively to Hornet about what he says happened. Though the second accuser preferred to stay anonymous, he said that Tegan Zayne’s story rang true for him as well:
The way [Tegan] described that situation felt exactly how it went down that night, and if I could get anything out of this story, I just want to back him up. No, this isn’t random behavior, it didn’t come out of nowhere. I experienced similar behavior and action years ago, and I want to add my voice and see if there are others that say this happened to them or not.
If you or someone you know has been the victim of rape or sexual assault, there are many resources available for help, including RAINN(Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), the National Domestic Violence Hotline for LGBTQ Abuse, Emerge (an organization set up to offer help to LGBTQ batterers) and The Anti-Violence Project for LGBTQ people.
