Falcon joins with other leading adult companies such as COLT Studio Group and Elite Male that have established similar strategic partnerships with one another and Next Door Entertainment.

Steve Johnson, President of Falcon Entertainment said, “This partnership agreement marks the beginning of a focused strategy to greatly enhance Falcon’s online presence. Our priority is to consistently deliver the Falcon brand experience across every digital channel. Given the current changes and trends in the adult industry, we knew we would need a strategic partner who could assist us with making this vision a reality. Next Door Entertainment and its partnership with Gamma Entertainment, proved to be the best choice for us, given their deep resource pool of talent and expertise.”

“Going forward, as we make the transition to becoming a truly online company, Next Door Entertainment’s experience will be extremely valuable to us. Given Falcon’s long standing position as a leader in the gay adult industry we feel it is essential that we are able to continue to focus on producing the high-quality content our fans have come to expect. This new business partnership will allow us to do that, while at the same time ensuring that the Falcon brand gains the same level of success in the online world as well,” said Johnson.

Stephan Sirard, President of Next Door Entertainment, commented, ““These types of strategic partnerships are the way of the future for the gay adult sector. It is in the better interest of all to work together rather than compete with one another. The cooperation between companies like COLT Studio Group, Elite Male, Next Door Entertainment and Falcon Entertainment enable everyone to grow their online businesses in a more efficient and profitable way.”

Sirard went on to say, “This is a partnership that makes sense for both companies. We chose to partner with Falcon because of their outstanding award winning content, powerful brand name and the commitment they have to growing their online business. It is a brand that has remained at the top for over three decades and is known by gay men around the world. If you combine Falcon’s expertise and leadership in the production of high quality gay content and Next Door’s technology and gay marketing expertise, you have a winning combination for both Falcon fans and affiliates.”

In the coming months, Falcon Bucks affiliates will be migrated to be part of the Next Door Buddy Profits affiliate program. More details for making the transition to Next Door Buddy Profits will be communicated directly to Falcon Bucks affiliates well in advance of the changeover.

Fans and members of falconxxx.com and other membership sites within the Falcon family can expect to see a series of site upgrades to come over the next few months that will deliver an enhanced user experience.

    Sorry Falcon but you just lost a long time customer. You were the first studio whose porn I purchased and I continued to purchase new releases. No longer. I will not purchase anything that supports Cody Cummings, Next Door, or Buddy Profits. They have a history of homophobic statements being posted on Cody Cummings blog and recently Mr. Cummings posted a video where he said gay sex would make a person insane. I know your eye is on the Cybersocket awards because Buddy Profits own them and you guaranteed awards next year but at what price. I always thought Falcon represent a pro-gay ideal even if they used gay for pay performers but to unite with a studio that elevates a homophobe to star status and pushes his site on gay blogs while he publically announces his disgust of gays doesn’t cut it in 2010. You may think that doesn’t effect you but being partners with them will make them money and they will use that money to fund the Next Door sites and especially Cody Cummings who they treat as a crown jewel. It maybe easy to dismiss my comments as those of a lone objection but make no mistake Cody Cummings is rapidly become poison to the gay community and anyone connected with him will also lose money. Ask them how many members they have lost since January specifically because of Cody and ask them how Cody’s Alexa ratings can go from 30,000 in December to an Average of 75,000 in March with consitent 100,000 point drops after update traffic. People aren’t renewing and disgruntled members are warning others to avoid the sites. Even the most loyal members are leaving as a result of their continued support of Cody’s website and this is the ship that you are choosing to place the most respected name in gay porn on during this economic storm? So I and many others will not buy your products as long as you are connected with Next Door or until Next Door releases Cody Cummings. Since that is unlikely to happen I say goodbye.
