Falcon Studios, a major player in the adult film industry, has unleashed new effects technology in a controversial effort to better compete with bareback porn studios. Judging from the stills promoting Falcon’s new release California Dreamin’, the tech looks pretty robust. Apparently, a team of artists slave over recently launched Photoshop and After Effects tools to digitally remove any trace of condom on Falcon’s stars. The visually arresting results should allow Falcon (which hasn’t produced bareback films since the 80s) a fighting chance in the competitive industry.
“With this movie I really wanted to capture the essence of that time, when life seemed more carefree and spontaneous,” director Tony Dimarco said in a press release. “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.”

What do you think of Falcon’s decision to digitally remove condoms from its gay porn?

I hate fake photoshoped Falcon crap.
Not sure what to think, I’m all for Choice, and I myself choose bare back porn and I prefer my sex bareback, but if one advocates condom use and then digitally removes condoms from their performers isn’t their point of view made moot. If they are going to hide the condoms to enhance their cash flow, then they should leave the choice of condom use up to the performers.
