For me, the most recognized name in gay porn has always been Falcon Studios, because it's the company I remember the most from my early days of looking at gay hardcore. For one thing, I was totally in love with Ken Ryker, who is 6'4", super-hung and often appeared with his blonde chest hair intact. He won several adult awards back in the '90s, but this company has continued to find fresh talent and make great contemporary movies.
Still, among the 692 DVDs on FalconStudios, you'll find some of Ken's work and that of other classic pornstars, like Joey Stefano and Michael Brandon, as well as new stars like Leo Giamani, Tommy Defendi and Jayden Grey.
Site design is good, but there is one issue with the navigation. You see, browsing through the many pages of movies I was only able to skip ahead a few pages at a time or jump right to the last few. This still left many pages in the middle that took many mouse clicks to get to and through.
There are 2,363 full-length scenes giving you high-def MP4s to stream in an embedded Flash player. There is no download option, though. There are several sizes to stream, with the one marked as "Full HD" obviously looking the best. The older footage is still affected by age and doesn't look quite as good as the newer scenes.
You're going to find some pre-condom classics and one of my favorites shows the legendary Al Parker as a taxi driver who fucks his fare bareback. What makes it interesting is the bottom actually sticks his own dick into his butthole first, so Al is briefly double penetrating the guy. More traditional versions of double-anal penetration show up in more recent releases, although they use condoms. You'll also see fisting, blowjobs and group sex.
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Falcon's most famous movie, "The Other Side of Aspen IV," which is one of the most widely rented gay titles on the market. You can now see it here along with five others in the series. Some of them are old enough that they were shot before condoms were being used, but later ones do use rubbers.
There are also 2,762 photo sets and some of them have high-res images. You can download the pics individually, but there aren't any Zip files. The spreads tend to be small with mostly 10 photos each. They often show you behind-the-scenes shots or glamorous solo posing that was done as promotional material for the DVDs.
Updates are every 2-3 days and you also get access to a few bonus videos from a third-party site. It's a bit disappointing that you can't download any of the videos, but a membership is still more economical than watching these DVDs on a VOD site. Falcon Studios is home to some of the hottest gay and gay-for-pay pornstars.
