    Adult Video News today reports the death of Pennsylvania-born porn star and producer Jon Dough (real name: Chet Anuszek) on 27 August 2006 as a result of self-inflicted injuries. He was 41.

    Entering porn in 1984 as "Johnny Dough", he appeared in over 1000 movies (under a variety of pseudonyms including Chet Sanders and Rock Taylor) over the course of a 22-year association with the industry. His output included the cult x-rated film Latex (1994/95) [http://imdb.com/title/tt0113619/] and the legendary The World's Luckiest Man (1997) [http://imdb.com/title/tt0161103/], in which he had sex with 101 different women. He remained a prolific performer up to his death, and leaves behind a wife (porn star Monique DeMoan) and a four-year-old daughter.

    Jon Dough Passes Away
    By: Dan Miller, AVM
    Posted: 3:00 pm PDT 8-28-2006

    CHATSWORTH, Calif. - AVN Hall of Fame performer Jon Dough passed away on Sunday, Monique Demoan, his wife of 12 years told AVN.com. Dough, whose real name was Chet Anuszek, was 43.

    "I've been with Chet for 12 years. We have a four-year-old daughter," Demoan said. "We lived together. I found Chet yesterday. ... He did take his own life."

    Demoan, who met Dough when she worked with him in Ed Powers' Dr. Butts 3, continued, "Chet was a very warm, loving person.

    "We fell deeply in love. He treated me very well. He put me on a pedestal and gave me everything we need. I loved him being a big man, and being held in his arms. He made me feel very comfortable, very loved… He was everything to me. And I bear his only daughter.”

    Adult performer Brian Surewood knew Dough for over a decade, even before Surewood began performing.
    “He’s always gave me phenomenal advice," Surewood said. "I worked next to him in scenes hundreds of times. We were good friends. I knew he was going through some problems. I tried to help him out before with his problems."

    Dough, who grew up Pennsylvania, is also survived by his father and three sisters.

    Producer/director Mike John said Monday he knew Dough for about 10 years.
    “He was just a really, really solid guy with a big heart," John said. "We had a lot of common interests outside of the business. We used to go up to Mammoth snowboarding quite a bit, just regular stuff that people do."
    John continued, "He had a lot of problems... He bounced around a lot with deals. He was a strong-willed guy. It’s very surprising to me that he would go out like this. We all tried. He had a lot of people around him but I think he just isolated himself lately. I hadn't talked to him in two months."

    John, one of the top gonzo shooters in adult, called Dough "a real innovator."
    "A lot of the things he did went on to get copied wildly. We were just all sitting around talking, [Erik Everhard] and a bunch of us and we were saying he was one of the only guys to span the generations. There's Tommy Byron, Marc Wallice, Ron Jeremy and Jon was one of those second generation guys. And to the last day, he was the only one who would get in the trenches with the new upstarts and show them what was up.

    "As a shooter, he was always full of good ideas. How many teen lines are there now? He was the first guy that said, 'let’s put their id’s up, and block their names and addresses.' He was the real deal. He lived it. In the end though, I think it just wore him down. I've talked him back a million times."

    John said that Dough had aspirations of mainstream acting before he got into porn.
    "He was doing some soap operas and he got an offer to do a Hustler layout. He could do it, it worked, and he got more and more calls. Before you knew it, he was in this," John recalled. "Chet was kind of a wild guy. He was the first contract guy ever [for Vivid]. That was something that had never been donie before. Girls liked him and he was into having a good time."

    Dough, who began performing in 1985 and has appeared in several classic adult films, has well over 1,000 titles to his credit as an actor. He has directed over 70 titles, most recently for Hustler, NJ Films and Anabolic.
    Vince Vouyer, co-owner of Vouyer Media and a 15-year adult industry veteran, knew Dough for the last 14.
    “Me and Chet weren’t hanging out having coffee, drinking beer together-type-of friends, but we had a lot of respect for each other throughout the years," Vouyer told AVN.com Tuesday. "We've always been good to each other. I've worked on a lot of projects with him over the years, some with Vivid, and he was one of the good guys in the business who I actually liked.

    "Unfortunately, the past few years have been rough, and he’s had some dependency problems. I don’t know what led up to this. I haven’t been in touch. I tried to put him in some scenes in the past four months. He had been available and then he wasn't available. He’s been calling me and I've been trying to get him in some scenes, but I hadn't been able to reach him.”
    Vouyer added, "He was definitely a good woodsman. I’ve never seen him have bad days. “

    Errmm, that's sad news there, alex, but also a typographical error on their part;
    If JD was born in 1962, then chronologically his age should either be 43 or 44.

    Nope, I wrote that first post all by myself, unaided by the typos of others.
    I am the one who can't do math. :cool:
    As noted in post #3, he was in fact 43.

    I'm very sad to read of his death, he was a very accomplished performer.

    Thanks for the info. I wasn't a fan of his at all, but I appreciate being kept abreast of the ever-changing world of porn.

    OMG Alex! The only video I saw of him is one where he was a stud in his twenties, was physically fit and had hair. That Wikipedia photo is shocking: how porn can age a man 30 years in 15.

    Obviously another porn casualty to add to an ever growing list.

    Sadly, porn stars tend to be self-destructive ,regardless of gender.
    Witness Leo Ford, Joey Steffano, John Holmes, Linda Lovelace et al.
    They all died "young".

    Since Chet Anuszek (Jon Dough) never reached the level of porn stardom of a John C. Holmes, little mainstream media news and no eulogies have come forth with exception of one on MySpace.com. Several porn stars and Howard Stern posted their condolences on MySpace since his August 27th passing. How interesting the dictotomy with the treatment of female porn stars who have committed suicide.

    As a teenager I vividly recall a television special titled, Death of a Porn Star with melodramatic footage including a black and white telescopic shot of the sleaze and urban crowding along Van Nuys Blvd. dissolving into a full color shot of a glorious blue sky and blowing wheat fields in the heartland of the Midwest. A sad baritone voice-over intoned, "before she was a porn star, before the drugs, alcohol and fast living took their toll, before she was Shauna Grant she was Colleen... Colleen Applegate from Farmington, Minnesota." A cute elementary school photo of Colleen with her family at a state fair filled the television screen. Now you could have the deductive powers of Arthur Conan Doyles' Watson and see the overriding message of this documentary: innocent woman as victim.

    Cut to 1994 and a Los Angeles Times Calendar Magazine article. This time the spotlight was on another beautiful female porn star, Savannah (a.k.a. Shannon Wilsey) who had just taken her life after dinging her sports car- and her nose- in a minor traffic accident.

    "The sleek white Corvette with the svelte blond behind the wheel sped through the hot August night. At the base of the hill it swerved on to the narrow winding road and climbed high, high into the Hollywood Hills leaving the lights of the city far below. "

    Glamour, sex, the fast life, bad man...woman as victim. Never mind that the actress was behind her rent on a dive of a 1,400 sq. ft. post WW-II ranch home on Multiview Dr. a hundred feet above a billboard on Cahuenga Blvd. or that she was an emotionally unstable junkie that was being passed around from rock star to rock star. It wasn't her fault that she ended up in the porno world. She was a victim.

    So if 'ol Jon Dough rates a story this weekend in some feature section of a newspaper, don't be at all surprised if he comes off as an out-of-shape, middle-aged porn star past his prime who couldn't get any more work and blew his head off in a fit of depression. Being male with a penis just isn't sexy to the media.

    Porn is inextricably linked to organized crime. I wonder how many of those "jumping from balconies" were murders... drug overdoses are also an easy way to cleanly kill someone.

    It's ridiculous how many male porn stars were killed by complications from diseases that were brought on by steroids and or cutting agent abuses.

    That one chick that was murdered in the middle of a bondage scene sticks in my mind though... BDSM is for people who have some SERIOUS issues.

    The porn and sex industry is absolutely NASTY as hell. I have cut my porn viewing down to about 75% of it's former glory. I basically only enjoy amateur porn now... the pro stuff is ridiculous. I'd rather watch some unknown woman clapping her booty on youtube, at least it's real.

    Don't blame porn for his death though. People from all walks of life commit suicide. Anyway he was a good performer and I am sure his fans will miss him.
