Jon Dough was the stage name of Chester Anuszak (November 12, 1962 – August 27, 2006), an American pornographic actor who worked steadily from 1985 to 2006.

Early life[edit]

Dough grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Dough attended Albright College in Reading, Pennsylvania. At eight years old his mother’s boyfriend began sexually abusing Jon and his younger brother. At 15, Jon was sent to live with his uncle.[1] Dough graduated from Albright College in Reading, Pennsylvania in 1985 with a degree in Biology.[2]


After graduating from college, Dough moved to Los Angeles, where he initially tried breaking into soap operas. However, a photo shoot at Hustler quickly resulted in steady work in the adult industry.[3] His first film was a short loop he made for Lance Kinkaid in 1985.[4]

In 1999, Vivian Valentine received a black eye after being hit by Jon during the filming of Anabolic Video's Rough Sex; however, she has said: "I have no regrets or bad feelings about it".[5]

As Dough or one of his other performing aliases, he was a veteran of nearly 1,100 adult videos and had directed 71 titles, according to the IAFD. One of his most noteworthy achievements was participating in a gangbang with 101 women,[6] becoming[clarification needed] as well the first DVD published by the adult-magazine publisher Hustler.

Reportedly, the character Johnny Doe in the film Boogie Nights was loosely based on Dough.[7]

Personal life and death[edit]

Dough's first marriage was to Deidre Holland, a pornographic actress, whom he later divorced. He remarried pornographic actress Monique DeMoan, with whom he had a daughter.

Dough died on August 27, 2006, in Chatsworth, California, of suicide by hanging. He was 43 years old. DeMoan discovered his body in a closet in their home.[8]

DeMoan subsequently left the industry and is raising their daughter in an undisclosed location.[9]
