Gay Porn Studio Digitally “Removes” Condoms In Newest Film

Gay Porn

The adult-movie industry has long grappled with the issue of condoms, especially gay porn companies. Even studios that want to be socially responsible claim their audiences gravitate toward bareback videos. (Michael Lucas, long a critic of bareback videos recently filmed his first condom-free movie.)

Of course there are those studios that remain steadfast in their commitment to condom-only videos. One of them, Falcon Studios, has just come up with an interesting strategy:  They’ve digitally removed the condoms from their newest film, California Dreamin’ 1, giving them the appearance of bareback sex.

In an interview wit GayPornBlog (NSFW), director Tony DiMarco described Dreamin’ as “a throwback to the classic, pre-condom Falcon poolside movies” popular in the 1970s and ’80s. (Falcon has used condoms in all its scenes since the late 80s).

Says DiMarco:

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.

Is this the solution to preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS in the porn business? And what about viewers—will  “Photoshopped” porn encourage actual unsafe sex among consumers?
