The Person Behind the Porn Wikileaks Website
The Person Behind the Porn Wikileaks Website
by Richard Abowitz

...What she didn't expect was Porn Wikileaks, a website that became infamous on Wednesday after Gawker.com ran a story about the renegade website's attempts to expose the identities of thousands of porn performers. (Gawker also implied that Porn Wikileaks has revealed the performers' STD statuses, which, so far, isn't true.) Revealing porn actors' real names is significant because, for every Jenna Jameson and Sasha Grey working today, there are thousands of other people who have worked in porn who are now teachers, lawyers, doctors, housewivespeople with a vested interest in keeping their past concealed by a pseudonym.

"They posted pictures of my dad, my mom, my sister," says Foster. "They put pictures of their residence and their actual addresses and private phone numbers. They posted a photo of my apartment." Despite years in adult entertainment, this exposure of her private life was unprecedented and unanticipated, says Foster. She has been driven nearly "psychotic" by it. "My mom is a school teacher and people have emailed and called the elementary school," she says. "No other website has done anything like that unless they were stalkers, and that is what I think about the people who run that website. I have been living in fear."

This fear has engulfed much of the porn world, as Porn Wikileaks has threatened to destroy one of the central pillars of the adult-film industry: anonymity. But who is the man behind the website? For all the power Porn Wikileaks wields, most porn stars suspect that the man in charge of it is someone they think very little of. His name, they say, is Donald Carlos Seoane, a.k.a. Donny Long, a washed-up former porn actor and director who, according to a separate website dedicated to exposing him, has had multiple run-ins with the law.

Reached by The Daily Beast via email, a person who admits to creating the websitebut who denies that he's Donny Longoffered, in a rant characteristic of all his responses, a quixotic and nonsensical motive for the creation of Porn Wikileaks: "To get the gays out of straight porn and illegal gay pimps that have ruined porn and shut it down making condoms mandatory by the government now. The fag loving has got to stop. California is full of gay Mexicans and now they can even marry which is so wrong." As for the potential safety risk of giving out information like the home addresses of porn stars, the creator of Porn Wikileaks offers: "Do you consider it a safety risk to make other people in the real worlds addresses and information public like Abortion doctors, government workers, or attention whores working at Starbucks with their cleavage hanging out?..."

1. this guy is messing with the wrong people
back in the day, porn producer would steal Ikegami cameras from stringers and newscrews in Los Angeles. The cameras used to cost about $80,0000. And they would just basically drive by someone who was shooting video with one, jump out, mug them and take the camera. Porn is full of people who live outside the law.
