Falcon To Digitally Remove Condoms In Effort To Create First “Completely Safe” Bareback Movie

The gay porn industry is in a strange state of flux with regard to the use of condoms in videos. Over the last several years, we’ve seen many of the newer, online studios produce bareback content (e.g. Sean Cody, Next Door Studios, Bel Ami), while the older, more established studios (Hot House, COLT, Titan, Channel 1, and Falcon/Raging Stallion) have remained steadfast in their commitment to make condom-only videos.

With their newest release, “California Dreamin’ 1″, Falcon has found a unique way to address the issue: Director Tony Dimarco and Falcon’s post-production team have digitally removed condoms from the video to create “a completely safe sex movie that mostly appears to be a bareback release.” (Note: All un-watermarked images in this post are screen-grabs from Falcon’s “California Dreamin 1″)

Dimarco described it as “a throwback to the classic, pre-condom Falcon poolside movies from the 70’s and 80’s.”  He  added, “With this movie I really wanted to capture the essence of that time, when life seemed more carefree and spontaneous. In keeping with this concept, I felt that condoms need to be addressed. I wanted to give the impression of a pre-condom movie, but use condoms as we do in every scene we film. I found a way to film the movie safely and effectively, while giving the experience that I had intended and using the hottest modern stars.”

Will this new technique put an end to the stormy condom vs. bareback porn debate that’s been raging for years? Probably not. But it will be interesting to see how fans react and Falcon/Raging Stallion Studios President Chris Ward thinks this move could be a game changer for the industry. Ward declared that this “will go down as a defining moment in the production of safe, top-quality male erotica.” He added: “The innovation and use of technology to make condoms less ‘in your face’ is something that allows us to appeal to all porn fans while protecting our actors’ health.”

“California Dreamin’ 1″ stars exclusives Ryan Rose, Ray Diaz and Donnie Dean, it also features Angel Rock, Lance Luciano, Ray Han, Adam Wirthmore and Liam Magnuson in his final scene before retiring. “California Dreamin’ 1″ will be available for pre-sale on the Falcon Store starting tomorrow.

Interestingly, you can see that condoms were used in the glamor images they’ve released from the film:

    I’d like to see a complete scene before and after the digital “magic.”

    JBK

  2. Jon says:

    I think you’ll still be able to tell the difference…..a limp dick is usually a condom wrapped dick….lol.

  3. Jay says:

    One of the big arguments against bareback porn is that it sends ‘the wrong message’ by glamorizing unsafe sex. So, if viewers are unaware of the digital trick, won’t that message still be sent?. Conversely, if we bareback lovers are aware of the digital removal of the condom, the magic will be gone(at least as far as ‘raw’ appeal; the scene might still be hot). I don’t know exactly which segment of the market they’re trying to please and what they’re trying to accomplish with this silliness: those who love bareback will be automatically turned off by the fact it’s fake; and those naive enough not to notice will probably be hooked on bareback porn which I assume is not Falcon’s intention.

    • Jeremy says:

      With the introduction of PrEP (Pre Exposure Prophylaxis) treatments like TRUVADA! a lot of people will be barebacking in the future. The iPREX study came back with the results that if people take TRUVADA everyday it was 100% affective in preventing HIV transmission. As for other STI’s that’s what antibiotics & antiviral medicines are for. & when they cure HIV (which they will) then controversy around barebacking will cease to exist because there will be no HIV virus to panic over.

  4. Disco says:

    I kind of agree with what Jay says, above. Also, whatever technology they’re using to “erase” the condoms isn’t entirely effective. I can see the condom pretty clearly in several shots in the video trailer. Can’t imagine how many hours this adds to their post-production.

    Thought experiment: What do you suppose would have been the reaction had Falcon released the film WITHOUT saying anything about erasing the condoms?

    Raging Stallion proposed doing exactly this years ago, like 2005. After substantial backlash they never went ahead with it. Now that RS and Falcon are the same company, and ever fewer people have any kind of social conscience, I guess they decided to go ahead with it after all. Frankly I was always surprised Raging Stallion weren’t the first mainstream company to jump on the disease-spreading wagon. They always seemed like they were just chomping at the bit to do so, and I assumed Falcon was holding them back. Sadly I’m not surprised by this move.

  7. tom trumble says:

    Chris Ward tried to do something similar in 2007 with Mirage, but it wasn’t as advanced or involved digitally removing condoms — they were just photoshopping them out of images, I believe:

  8. John says:

    I agree with Disco. I, too, can see the condom in several shots clear as day, and in a couple of others, I can still see it faded about 50%. So first of all, why bother with all of this at all if it’s not going to completely do the trick, and second, I think this is almost like watching animated porn. You’re not watching a close up of a penis and ass, you’re watching some computer generated image. Kind of a turnoff for me. I realize there’s a market for bareback porn and Falcon is fanatical about safer sex, so maybe they think this is how they can cash in while remaining true to their principles, but I don’t think this is going to fly. Falcon is clearly testing the waters. Personally, the presence or absence of condoms doesn’t do a thing for me either way. It’s all about the guys. I think like most men, I’m interested in a scene, and a movie, if it features a particular guy I like. When all is said and done, weather you like bareback or not, THAT, is what the draw is for a consumer. The same applies for straight porn. Straight men may or may not care about condom use to one degree or another, but when all is said and done, it’s the women that will draw them in.

  9. boyzzboy says:

    Man there is too much money in the porn industry if we can pull this off. lol

  10. Clayton King says:

    Thank you, Jay. You’re is the only voice I’ve heard on this that makes any sense at all.

  11. [...] can check it out here. Totally not safe for work. It looks pretty good to [...]

  12. Jorge says:

    More fake images on screen! Why don’t they produce cartoons? That’s the safest thing!

  13. It seems to me that the underlying issue is that younger guys seem to want to bareback – without even a question of HIV status – and men ‘old enough to remember’, don’t (as much). That influences the market for gay porn, and we all know the market dictates….

  14. James says:

    This is how pathetic the whole bareback thing has become. Gay porn should be condom only in my opinion. I hate all this bareback crap. Its disgusting.

  15. David K says:

    I don’t think porn has a plot or a political statement & find it to be hott

  16. I agree with Jay. The big studios have always presented the argument that depicting unprotected sex sends an unhealthy message to their audience. Remember when they were blacklisting bareback performers? Not so much anymore. Heavy moral standards often fail where money is concerned, especially in this day and age. And now that the big studios are losing market share to bareback videos they are compromising their lofty moral positions. Chi Chi La Rue opted to buy and re-release all of the pre-condom Catalina video material to try to capitalize on the bareback market. Michael Lucas has released a bareback video of two lovers having raw sex despite his assurance a few years back that they would never film bareback porn, and now Falcon is trading in its moral stand for a piece of the bareback revenue. So much for the message. The humorous part is that they all still tout this “barebacking is bad” message while trying to figure out how to cash in on bareback action so they can remain competitive. Why don’t they just come out and say it… they want to film bareback scenes but just don’t have the balls to admit it to the very public they have spent so much effort trying to shame into wearing condoms.

    Also humorous is the fact that their real competition comes not from bareback studios per se, but from all of the small independent producers of amateur porn who have hit the scene running, with their easily-affordable digital equipment. There is a glut of that kind of porn out there. So Falcon decides that digitally removing condoms from their actors’ wieners is how they will compete?

    So Falcon/Raging Stallion, where DO you stand now? On your high moral ground, or grubbing for money with the rest of them?

  17. Perhaps the bottom line here is that the big studios are realizing that there’s not a lot of profit in maintaining a high moral standard in porn.

  18. Daniel says:

    Bizarre.

  19. kristopher says:

    this is so awesome i love men that are like this because im the same

  20. Jason says:

    I agree. Taking away the look of the condemn just makes it appear as unsafe sex, bareback, is ok again

  21. BlogZilla says:

    I’m having a hard time understanding why they didn’t do this years ago…Why our community is so dumb and anti-condom, boggles my mind …. You’re just nasty septic sons of bitches.

  22. Martin Navi says:

    Fuck condoms in porn. Who wants to see it? Raging Stallion was only hot when Michael Brandon did a few sort of bareback scenes. He’s stick just the head in raw. I always wanted to see him go all the way. Kudo to Michael Lucas his bareback orgy scene was way hot
