That is, in fact, what Hansen ultimately alleged. Jaxson, Hansen says, "lives off hiring boys who are 18 to 25 years old, often boys with social problems, problems with alcohol and drugs, family problems — he takes them into his home, he makes them part of this 'family,' and he likes to call it a family, and he pays them $600 to $1,000 to shoot artistic porno, and he makes profit margin of, like, several hundred percent, like, making literally millions of dollars."

Jaxson sent the Voice a copy of Hansen's CockyBoys contract, which promises the performer a minimum of $1,200 per scene. As for Hansen's other assertions, Jaxson responds, "Yes, a lot of the boys who work with me — and in adult entertainment in general — come from difficult circumstances, and I would include Jeppe."

He doesn't look at the situation as a means to a profit, Jaxson asserts, but as a way to offer a safer, more supportive alternative. "Maybe this is my purpose."

He says that before taking on any actor, he asks about the would-be CockyBoys performer's career goals and tries to create a plan to use adult film work to transition into a profession that is more sustainable in the long term.

Before the fight, Jaxson had planned to spend the fall shooting a sweet, romantic film. Instead, he found himself obsessing over what he considered a betrayal.

Answered Prayers, which takes its title from an unfinished novel by Truman Capote (the epigraph, a quotation from Saint Teresa, reads: "More tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones"), is intended as catharsis, a chance for his models and partners to create something productive from the summer's drama.

Hansen says he doesn't expect Answered Prayers to be the last film Jaxson makes about him. When he signed with CockyBoys, he gave Jaxson the rights to a documentary about his dismissal from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School.

Reflecting on it now, Hansen says, "I see myself as a part of a very well-thought-out marketing campaign."
