SEATTLE — Seattle publication The Stranger has released a detailed article accusing Seattle-based freelance tech journalist, Matt Hickey, of having posed as a female porn recruiter online in order to convince multiple women into having sex with him. They reportedly thought these encounters were ‘auditions.’”

Hickey pretended to be an an indie-porn recruiter named Deja Stwalley online, and would approach the women who wanted to break into the porn industry, according to The Stranger.

Stwalley would joke that she loved cocks and money, explaining that was why she got into the porn business, but her webcam always seemed to be broken, and she could never speak on the phone. Typing, however, was not a problem. She’d tell women they could make $450 an hour on a six to eight-hour shoot, or claim they could make between $2,000 and $3,000 on a scene.

If anyone expressed skepticism of her legitimacy, Stwalley would claim she got into the business to protect women from being duped into unsavory situations. So far, of the six women who have come forward claiming they were duped by Hickey, three said they had sex with him.

Allysia Bishop, 19, claimed that when she met with Hickey, he was introduced as Stwalley’s photographer partner, and hadhe had a checklist of things he asked if Bishop would be willing to do, including bondage. Meanwhile, he continually plied her with alcohol as he went on to take her photographs. Eventually, Hickey convinced her to have sex with him, saying that would ensure that she was comfortable with what it took to enter the porn industry.

Bishop later went home feeling as if she had been violated. This drove her to slit her wrists in an attempted suicide, but she managed to survive. She told The Stranger that she was then determined to expose Hickey for what he had done.

Her story and similar ones made the rounds online, eventually ending up in an online feminist group. One of the woman, who opted to remain anonymous in the article, launched an investigation, where an IP address eventually led to Matt Hickey.

Two of the women who fell victim to Hickey’s lies maintain that he had raped them, as their consent to having sex with him was made under false pretenses. However, as The Stranger states in the article, the charge of rape in the first degree requires “forcible compulsion” in Washington State. This means that the rapist must have used or threatened the use of a deadly weapon, had kidnapped his victim, broken in, or inflicted serious physical injury. But none of these things happened.

The Stranger also tracked down the women whose photo Hickey was using to carry out these actions, and found that she had actually attended middle school with him and knew nothing about the profile he had created under her image.

She said to the publication that Hickey had a ‘weirdo crush’ on her.

Meanwhile, Hickey hasn’t commented much on the matter to The Stranger, but his website is suddenly devoid of content except for the words, “Don't believe everything you read, please. I'll have more to say soon when I'm able to.”
