Porn’s Disappearing Condom Trick!

by Trenton Straube

Like waving a magic wand, adult film company Falcon Studios has used digital technology to erase condoms from its gay film California Dreamin’. The actors in the new movie wore rubbers, but to viewers at home, the sex appears condomless. “Many love it—they are glad our actors are safe, and they do not have to have condoms in a starring role in their erotica,” Falcon Studios president Chris Ward tells Salon.com. “Others say that this is ‘fake’ barebacking and they do not like it.”

Either way, it’s a gambit in light of a Los Angeles County law that mandates condoms in porn. As promoted by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, this legislation and similar pending bills are intended to protect workers’ health while on the set. Sadly, it will take more than the rule of law or a sleight of hand to make HIV vanish into thin air.
