Chris Ward Responds to Controversy Surrounding Minimizing Appearance of Condoms
Falcon Studios announces the availability of the first scene from California Dreamin’ 1. The scene, featuring Exclusive Ryan Rose and Ray Han, is available on Falcon’s streaming membership site, FalconStudios.com. In the scene and throughout the two part movie, production and post-production techniques have been used to deliver fans a completely safe sex movie that reduces the appearance of condoms. California Dreamin’ 2 arrives in stores and online next Monday, February 10, and additional scenes from part 1 will appear on FalconStudios.com in the coming weeks.
In the poolside scene, Exclusive Ryan Rose is soaking in the sun working on his tan while handsome Ray Han decides to take a skinny dip. The sight of Ray’s buns disappearing into the water stirs Ryan’s groin to attention. Ryan joins him in the pool, and they hook up in and out of the water. The scene is filled with throwback references to Falcon poolside, pre-condom releases with expertly filmed oral, rimming and hardcore sex sequences that culminate in two amazing money shots.

In response to the debate and controversy surrounding the release of California Dreamin’ 1, Chris Ward, Falcon & Raging Stallion Studios President has released an official statement, “We vigorously support condom use in our films and scenes because we feel strongly that the safety of our actors is our responsibility. Our company is behind condom use in gay erotica 100%, and we’re exploring how to make condom scenes that use production and post-production techniques to mitigate the visual of condoms which many, many customers find distracting. We decided to try to see if this was possible, and the result is California Dreamin’ 1 & 2. Anyone familiar with Photoshop and video editing programs will know how to do this, and it’s also partly done on the set with lighting. A viewer of this movie will not mistake it for a bareback movie. The condoms are slightly visible–more in some scenes than in others because of lighting. The goal here was to simply take the condom issue out of the viewer’s experience as much as possible while keeping our models safe. It’s there, but it’s not giant and distracting.”
