News flash: Falcon Studios digitally removes condoms in upcoming gay porn release

Here’s the top news release of the week:

Studio Uses Advanced Tech To Appear Bareback

Could debate about condoms in porn be over?

Legendary gay film producer Falcon Studios has decided to use some decidedly new tech to compete with bareback studios. For it's latest release, California Dreamin', the San Francisco-based studio used advanced Photoshop techniques to remove condoms from the final film. While the film itself was shot using condoms, the final result appears as condomless. The move comes in response to two trends in the industry — increasing financial pressures from consumers who want to see films without condoms, and state regulatory agencies that have fined adult film producers for going without.

In an interview with the consumer-facing blog, GPB, director Tony Dimarco described it as “a throwback to the classic, pre-condom Falcon poolside movies from the 70′s and 80’s.”  Falcon itself has used condoms in all its features since the late 80s.

“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.”
