Porn Company Digitally Removes Condoms From Video

In 2012, voters in Los Angeles County narrowly approved Measure B [PDF], a law that requires porn performers to wear condoms. Some fans of adult film fans complain that the use of condoms is distracting, and a number of studios are either ignoring the law or shooting outside of L.A. County. But one porno producer is going the high-tech route, digitally removing the prophylactic devices from its performers’ phalluses.

BetaBeat reports that gay porn producers Falcon Studios are set to release their first film where the condoms were digitally erased.

Falcon is located in San Francisco, hundreds of miles away from where it would be impacted by Measure B, so why the post-production trickery? The film’s director says it was about evoking the more free-and-easy attitude of the ’70s.

“With this movie I really wanted to capture the essence of that time, when life seemed more carefree and spontaneous,” he explains. “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.”

We’ve not seen the results, so we have no idea if the effect is believable. But if it could be done affordably and well, it might be an option for L.A.-based porn producers who wish to abide by the law while providing viewers what they want to see.

Given that multiple STD and HIV scares have intermittently shut down Southern California porn production in recent years, carnal consumers may need to learn to live with looking at condoms, at least until digital condom deletion becomes the standard.

    This seems like the perfect opportunity for the performers to start using female condoms and invent an anal condom to be worn on the inside.
