Falcon Studios Uses New Tech To Digitally Remove Condoms

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?

Comments

I think creating more videos of no condemn will just promote people to stop using them 

I don't use them but I'm in a committed relationship of 12 years.

and yes I know fact that he is is faithful. 

How do u know anal isn't natural... Were u there when we were created. No.. Just bc society has taught u that it's gross. Doesn't mean it isn't natural. 

If it wasn't meant to happen, then why is there a make g spot that will make I cum when it's hit just like a female g spot 

Proven fact the harder u fight against something like anal or being gay 

just means ur fighting against what ur true self is or wants 

This is VERY old news going back to 2007.  Let's face it, porn is stupid and people who engage in anal are dirty.

there is a sexual organ in every mans anus called the prostate, quit projecting onto other s what u really want but r 2 chicken shit to do

Is that why every man is a bottom?  Gotcha!
 

not every man is a bttm, but thats y it feels so great for them

Use an enema, you douchebag. Anal sex is normal, natural and feels fucking fantastic. Its okay If you don't like sex but its not okay to criticize those of us that do and call us dirty.

Anal is not even sex.  It was never normal or natural and never will be.  You are another porn junkie.  Don't forget to get your HIV test.    People into shit sex are dirty, plain and simple. 

Haha wow someone had a brown experience the first and only time they tried anal at high school!

Never tried it as a minor or as an adult. It's a sick lifestyle.  Not everyone's into poop sex.  Like those of us who are intelligent.   

You should calm down... And likely get fucked.

Well-out !!!

u mean the transmission of HIV, u cant catch AIDS u can catch HIV thou

Some wat u say is true, but the way uou are saying it sound highly unintelligent. 1st you do not spread AIDS or Infect ppl with AIDS gay or not. You are infected with or can spread HIV. 2nd it's not the 80's or early 90's anymore so gettng infected is nota death sentence if you take care of yourself you can live a full life and with he new things being discovered scientist r not that far from a cure or a vaccine. 3rd mostly all Str8 porn is done bareback does that mean that only Gay ppl are subjected to the scrutiny lik Str8 porn stars are somehow immune to HIV or any other Sexually transmitted Infections "NO". so before going off on a rant that would have a point, try saying things in a more educated and unoffending way

I hope your comments were meant as satire. The spelling and grammar make your rant nearly unreadable. I could almost see the crayon marks on the screen as I tried to read your comments about sounding unintelligent.

what r u the grammar police, quit being closeminded

That's so "oldskool".

Bareback sex is so overrated in the gay community everywhere. I actually find a man who wears condoms is very sexy. It shows that he cares a lot not only for him but the most importantly MY safety. A husband material I call it.

Anal sex is not about sensation. As a bottom gay man, I certainly can't tell difference. I had tried a few times in my teen seriously, there is nothing to brag about. It is more about ego than anything else. It is all about the chemistry. Now, I'm very careful. I have turned down so many men who refused to use protection. They are not worth it no matter how good looking and buffy they are.

Porn industry is full of sad stories. I know because I live in Berlin and many porn actors are playing Russian Roulette. As an ordinary gay man who has 9-5 job, a lover and family, I don't support this "bareback' propaganda. Don't worry you won't find me clicking under "Breeding", "Creampie" or "Raw" section anytime soon simply because I feel disgusted by it. We should treat people in the porn in industry (especially those who are making bareback videos) the same way we treat criminals like child rapists and  thefts. They are menace to the society. Period.

I have met many people who use condoms and they live well, healthy and diseases free but I have met so many people who are not bothered at all and they got HIV and have series of back to back STD infections. 

"Carefree" and "spontaneous"....yeah right, in your own delusional and STD ass !!!

Why some are people here so resistant to using condoms and protecting porn studios? Maybe the people who shout "personal responsibility" belong to the group of diseases. Hard to tell....

 

Tony C. Your comments are so ridiculous!  If you believe that women don't finger their husband's holes and that their husbands aren't stick their dicks in their wives asses you are so naive!  Why don't you try doing some Kinsey research before you comment..

do you believe everything Kinsey said?  My partner and I have friends who have wives and g/f's.  When all us guys get together sometimes the talk turns to sex. They all assumed that we had butt sex because we're gay.  They were wrong.  And they couldn't figure out who was the catcher who was the pitcher because we're both muscular and masculine.  We assumed they had anal with their g/f's and wives because we saw it in porn.  Only one of our buds did it and once was enough.  He said it was ridiculous.  Not even any lubrication in there like pussy.  And they don't let their ladies finger their holes.  Your name speaks volumes and porn is your god. 

^^^^

Woman who loves rimming her husband..... lol

You can't use Photoshop in the real world. Thank God we have options. It's called PREP people. Look it up. Learn about it. Grow up. Science marches on while your head is up your ass.

The message that is sent here is that condoms are a "turn-off."   This is NOT a good message to be sending to a young Gay Community that doesn't remember the "plague" days of the AIDS epidemic. I am very disappointed in the irresponsible stand that Falcon and other porn houses have taken on this issue.

GLBT communities/human right groups in USA are too busy promoting gay rights and same sex marriages .... until they forget HIV and AIDS cases are increasing. 

Condoms are cool. Give me the piece of mind.

This is so bizarre.  There are gay men out there who actually want to see a penis in an anus?  Not sure how that could be a turn on.  We live in a really sick world.  And someone actually thinks of a way to erase the condom from the scene.   People have far too much time on their hands.  We need to erase AIDS. 

Latex ain't sex. Visible or not. Fake. 

Really ladies, stop babbling. Personal choices: we make them every day and we learn to live with the necessary consequences. So, it's no one’s job to shame others for their choices. Deal with it. You don't like porn, don't watch it. You don't like anal, don't get fucked (but please take the stick out of your ass). You don't like the idea of having an STD, then don't bareback. It's one's choice!

You choose to have a team of artist slave over Photoshop to make you look like something you’re not, the consequence: YOU'RE A PHONY!

Be who you are and take pride in that whatever choices you make, that they are your own. And no one else's

Maybe you are right but over the past decade or so, mainstream same-sex porn has gone from adhering to a strict condom code to marketing bareback sex for profit. 

"They absolutely have a moral obligation to promote safe sex" but too many people have died because of AIDS. And too many people have STDs. Young people tend to learn about sex from porn. “If you don’t like watching bareback porn, simple, don’t watch it” sure but his is where I think there absolutely needs to be a national law requiring all porn to use condoms and other safe sex methods. 

It’s THEIR responsibility NOT to encourage their employees to contract fatal diseases so they can make a profit. It’s OUR responsibility not to abdicate our responsibility to promote the health and safety of all gay men; that means it’s our responsibility NOT to pay for products that promote the transmission of AIDS. It’s OUR responsibility to question why we are sexually aroused by watching other men infect each other with AIDS and to question why we find it acceptable for death-wish porn producers to profit from the deaths of gay men. It’s OUR responsibility to stop the hypocrisy of supporting AIDS charities and demanding help from the government to fight AIDS while encouraging practices that spread AIDS. It’s OUR responsibility to stop hiding behind the fictional excuse of “free choice” to duck the obligation to be responsible citizens and protectors of the lives of all gay men, including porn stars. 

Enough is enough....

 

I'm not sure "kids" watch most of what comes from Falcon Studios. For most of us, it's as we age we like the guys Falcon uses. Yeah I know some younger guys like older guys:more than a few of us wouldn't mind trading places with Dustin Lance Black and spend time with Tom Daley, but I'm not certain Falcon would be the studio of choice for younger and more impressionable viewers.

The bigger question is why do people, gay and straight, continue to support porn? Yes we've all indulged, but do we really believe most performers are making big bucks? Don't more than a few look like addicts? How many make it after their porn experiences, and before Sean Paul Lockhart a.k.a Brent Corrigan non-porn films have been terrible.Studios and distributors, many of which were affiliated with organized crime prior to the internet, laugh all the bank, but for many involved in this indrustry, it's hardly a joke. For viewers, porn can be anything from a  guilty pleasure to an addiction, but as far as this industry is concerned, I have to agree with many feminists who point out the realities of this industry: it is exploitive, violent, and is not worthy of support.

NEVER call anyone infected anytime, an 'idiot'.  Your lack of compassion is a bad indicator of the future.

why should we feel sorry for those people who imitate porn, choose to have unprotected sex and want to be infected?

Craiglist..... much?

What do you call a gay guy who got infected in the '80s?

An idiot

What do you call a gay guy who gets infected in 2014?

An idiot.

What do you call a gay guy who wants to live in a carefree and fantasy world?

An idiot

If you don't want AIDS scares, AIDS tests, and possibly getting HIV/AIDS, don't have anal.  Believe me, it won't make you any more or any less gay.  What it will do is make you a lot freer and a hell of a lot healthier.  There are far too many men in our tiny community who are HIV+ and too many who passed on.    

It is possible to get it from oral, too. The virus is inside semen, and has been found in precum, so if the guy is leaking into your mouth, you could get HIV. The solution is not to give up oral or anal sex: the solution is to play it safe. Use condoms, learn the other guy's HIV status, and so on.

It is extremely rare to get HIV from oral.  This has been proven in studies over the past thirty years. I don't do anal, period.  Not sure what you don't understand.  If oral sex spread HIV just about every gay men on the planet would have it.     

ARE U SUGGESTING WE BITCHES SHOULD BE FINGERFUCKED INSTEAD?

NO WAY. I LOVE DICKS INSIDE MY SHITHOLE...WITH PROTECTIONS OF COURSE.

I think many of you are experiencing gender confusion.    You were born a man, my dear.  Women get fingered and f**ked.  Your shithole is to shit.  duh!  You probably don't even realize that when a guy's in your shithole, as you call it, he can remove the condom and you wouldn't even know the difference.  My dear, you are an accident about to happen. 

How old are you? Maybe you should Google---------> "ANEMA".

Anal sex is very enjoyable if you do it right but will take some preprep before engaging in it.

1. Pre-stretching the sphincter muscle by insertion of a medium sized well-lubricated dildo. Do this for at least a week or more prior to anal sex;

2. Self-administering an enema consisting of plain warm water [without any laxative] via a hot water bottle to wash out all fecal matter from within the rectum; stop administering when the expelled water appears clear. Do this about 2-3 hours prior to the act;

3. Asking your bf to shave along the shaft of his organ in order to remove any hair. No hair allows smoother entry of the organ.

4. Using a lot of lubricant [K-Y] on the male organ;

5. Engaging in the doggie position, where you are on your hands and knees and he enter from atop;

6. Using a condom is optional since you are basically very clean inside your rectum and should you engage in oral sex immediately after he climaxes in your anal passageway; use an antiseptic/alcohol wipe on his organ before continuing oral sex.

Try it...your partner will love you more...

Anema?  You are one anal dummy.  You're not supposed to stretch your sphincter.  Those are the guys who wind up with adult diapers.  The advantage of no anal is we don't have to do any of that ridiculous stuff you just mentioned 2-3 hours before the act.  LOL!  We make love spontaneously.  In fact, it's time to go make love right now.  No enemas, no dildos, no condoms, no shaft shaving, no antiseptic wipes.  You live in bizzarro world.  Another victim of too much porn.   

I assume you are a virgin?

I've had sex with women, so no I'm not a virgin.  Is there some kind of gay virginity rule that says unless you've been topped or bottomed you're a virgin??  You guys are ridiculous.  Be a man!

You should try anal ball....to release your stress. You should very angry. What's up?

What do you call a gay guy who got infected in the '80s?

A victim.

What do you call a gay guy who gets infected in 2014?

An idiot.

What do you call a gay guy who wants to live in a carefree and fantasy world?

Bullshit.

Lack of education is part of it. It is about educating people BEFORE infection. I REFUSED to use condoms with my ex boyfriend in our relationship, because we were in a committed, monogamous relationship. And, because I wanted everything to be 100% natural, and not to have a condom taking away from the authentic practice of sex, in a committed relationship. Well, so I thought, until I found out about my ex boyfriend's unfaithfulness, and promiscuous sexual history!

So...to ALWAYS protect yourself in every situation, even when you are in an exclusively committed relationship with one person and one person only; wear condoms. Don't put yourself through what I did, with the constant worry of maybe having HIV, or some other related sexually transmitted infection/disease. You don't deserve even the worry of it, and I wouldn't want the same for you, as what happened to me!  I should have used much more sense, but the important and positive thing is; I have learnt to NEVER EVER imitate porn actions and repeat that mistake again.

The argument people make about it being "more authentic", "spontaneous" and "100% natural" are, as I'm sure you know by now, total bullshit.

Grow up, porn industry !

I know many gay men in their 50s who loved fisting when they were in their 30s-40s now have to wear diapers thanks to gay porn videos. I don't know a single person with HIV who's ever said "Oh, well, it's not a big deal, and if I had it to do over again, I'd still have unsafe sex." I do know an awful lot of people who have said "I really wish I'd listened when people told me to play safe. This sucks, but I don't have any choice now."

People who haven't seen the devastation, or haven't actually had to navigate getting and paying for HIV treatment have this nonchalant attitude about it. People who are HIV+ see it differently. Unfortunately, as this thread is showing, it's virtually impossible to get people who are hell-bent on barebacking to figure out that they're being dumbasses until it's too late.

Wrap it before you record it. Period.

Any men who glorifying unprotected sex should be shot to death. Don't let the bitch in the porn industry with a 3rd World Country mentality deceive you. Those nasty and dumb idiots at Falcon i'm sure they don't mind getting Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea & Herpes because they make millions a year. :(

Maybe they could photoshop vaginas on a few of the models

Or, you know, they could just be *actually* having bareback sex and this is all a ploy....

 It allows the fantasy while keeping the performers safe. Porn is not an instructional format. It's escapism. If the notion of condoms halts the fantasy and brings back the viewer to reality, then this offers a wider opportunity for the studio to market to a broader audience. 

The bottom line is the safety of the actors is what's important. While we all are responsible for our own behaviors and choices we make, the studios are LEGALLY bound to protect their talent... and with this technology it allows them to offer a product that does that while delivers the fantasy the consumer wants.
