Hello. My name is Kelli and I have asked my friend for permission to post my views on this website regarding a very serious subject. I should point out that my views are that of my own and may or may not reflect the owners of this website. That being said, do let me begin my little rant about the Jack Venice rape conviction.
As a female intimately familiar with the concept of RAPE, I stand in protest of the Jack Venice conviction, because what he did wasn’t rape and if you are going to nail someone to the wall, I think you should do it for the right reasons. I have asked the owners of this website to let me post my story because I feel someone from within our industry besides his girlfriend needs to stand up and say what the fuck!
I have looked over a great number of documents regarding the Jack Venice ordeal. I have read stories, interviews and depositions that have been made public by several parties involved in the case.
First let us define what we think rape is. To me, rape is when you force someone to have sex with you. I think any reasonable person would agree with me on that being the defining factor of rape. Wouldn’t you?
But apparently no in the state of WA as that is not the case here at all. He didn’t have sex with her and yet he still sits in jail for rape.
This “victim” was passed out drunk as a sorority party. She was possibly high, we don’t know for sure, so in court they called her condition as being in a “dream like state”. This apparently is acceptable behavior in WA yet being a porn star is evil.
Because of her condition she couldn’t identify what anyone in that room looked like, nor could she say for sure how many people where even in the room. She didn’t even know if she had sex. Later a rape kit would come back negative. How drunk or high do you have to be to not know if you just had sex with somebody. She gave at least two different accounts of what happened that night to authorities, with a slight twist on the story during the trial. So in all there are at least three variations of the story from the victim herself.
Again I use the word victim loosely here. I mean I get that it’s scary to wake up from being passed out cold at a party to find men in your room but how do you go from that to rape?
Well that’s where the story gets rather interesting.
See the girl didn’t know if anyone touched her or not. So then if that is the case how is Jack Venice now convicted of rape?
Easy enough, we have a witness. There was another person in the room that night and this is a friend of Jack’s who himself was in a world of trouble so instead of facing the music on charges they had him for, which we know was at least two counts of Grand Theft that carried the possibility of ten years in prison, he decided to turn on Jack. I mean wouldn’t you?
Well, I wouldn’t but I know many others would. Especially considering the fact that he didn’t really know the guy all that well so why not?
By his own account, the police asked questions, he agreed that was what happened. He told them what they wanted to hear in exchange for a deal. Mind you he’s already been in jail for awhile now and he wanted to get out. He knew telling the cops what they wanted to hear about Jack Venice was his quick pass out of the slammer.
So what does he tell the cops? Well here too we have at least two versions of the story with a lot of confusion sub text. In the end what it turns out he told them was that he and Jack Venice went to a frat party where Jack was going on about what a big time porn star he was and like a dumb fuck pulled out his penis to show some girls. The girls got all grossed out and ran off and the frat boys kicked them out of the party. Egos no longer in check they decided it would be easy to rip off those rich little fuckers who just made them look like fags so they made their way down fraternity row looking for houses to rob. They found one sorority house having a party. Knowing everyone was drunk downstairs they quietly worked their way upstairs to see they could steal. The found a chick passed out on the bed so they decided to have a little fun with her. Jack Venice grabbed her head and put it in his crock, simulating a blow job. Keep in mind this is what the witness was telling the cops, well my summary of his words – not a word for word account mind you Next he said Jack Venice pulled her up again, this time from behind, simulating that he was having doggy style sex with her. They laughed it up and she never woke up. She was clearly “out of it”. He may or may not have groped her breasts or her vagina area. Either way, at this point all parties are still fully clothed. Nobody has had any “sex”. No blow jobs, no putting his cock in her pussy. None of that stuff. But the witness said at this point he was ordered by Jack Venice to hand him a condom so he could have sex with this lifeless body, aka the drunk chick passed out on the bed and it was the sound of the condom wrapper that apparently finally woke her up.
So if Jack Venice didn’t RAPE the girl, why did he get convicted of it? I think the answer to that question is a complex one but I know a large part of it had to do with the fact that he was a porn star. During the trial they paid a lot of attention to the work that he does as if somehow it was relevant to what he was accused of.
So in the end you have to ask yourself, if a man didn’t force a woman to have sex with him, how is he sitting in jail for rape?
And even worse, how are we as an industry not supporting him when it was our industry that they nailed him for.
I’m not saying you have to like the guy or that he’s not a total dumb ass for thinking of the whole robbery thing in the first place but nail a guy for what he did, not for rape. It’s total and complete bullshit.
