Adult film star Nikki Benz has filed a sexual assault lawsuit over a pornographic scene she performed in.

She's seeking unspecified damages from the company that produced the video, Brazzers, along with its director Tony T and her co-star Ramon Nomar.

In legal documents cited by US media, Benz says she had her head stamped on and thrown against a wall during the scene.

She also allegedly had water poured down her throat while gagged - a description that sounds eerily similar to the notorious torture technique known as waterboarding.

Benz says she was not warned about the contents of the scene before she agreed to do it, and also never consented to be touched by Tony T during filming - but claims he continued to do so even after she asked him to stop.

Once the alleged abuse was over, she says Tony T forced her to say on-camera that she would work with him again, threatening to withhold her payment if she refused.

Benz first made allegations of assault against Tony T via Twitter in 2016, triggering Brazzers to sever ties with him.

The lawsuit, which claims the scene caused Benz "pain, suffering, emotional distress, as well as past and future medical expenses and lost wages", has been filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
