Dominic Ford Has Released Its First Bareback Scene, Despite Being An Anti-Bareback Studio

Posted December 22, 2016 by with 30 comments

df000In 2016, a condom gay porn studio “going bareback” to desperately try and bring any last shred of attention to their dead brand is one of the saddest things you can see. While it worked for some (Sean Cody), it failed miserably for others (Randy Blue). But either way, the “going bareback” trend for condom studios ended in 2014.

Despite that dead trend, Dominic Ford—a studio that apparently still exists—has released its first bareback scene today. The studio’s owner (i.e., Dominic Ford, the studio’s only employee) was gleefully tweeting about it all day long, labeling it a “new era.”

df00000df00For several years, Dominic Ford has barely been able to update his site once per month (and even then, everything being uploaded was just re-released content from ancient third party studios, which had already been released elsewhere years ago), so the switch to bareback is clearly one last grasp. And, given the rumors that Dominic Ford’s model scene rates are around $300, it probably wasn’t too hard for him to do. Also, while I have no confirmation of this, I’d be willing to bet $300 that Dominic Ford did not pay for these models to be tested.

In addition to Dominic Ford’s bareback “era” being overall pathetic, it’s also deliciously hypocritical, as Dominic Ford himself has expressed his disapproval of bareback porn multiple times in the past, both privately to industry colleagues and, luckily for us, publicly on Twitter for everyone to see:

df1Dominic Ford’s sadness over the spread of HIV and the rise of bareback porn is particularly funny today, not only because he’s now a bareback porn producer, but also because the performer in his first bareback scene, Ace Era, is a model who has strongly and openly wished to partake in HIV conversion during a bareback scene. How nice that he and Dominic Ford were able to find each other!

ace3-1024x533In addition to lamenting the spread of HIV and bareback porn, Dominic Ford has also spoken out against gay porn blogs for criticizing studios that have gone bareback. The blogs, according to Dominic Ford in 2013, should spend their time focusing on condom studios that are suffering, instead of making money off the bareback studios they’re judging:

df2 df3 df4 df5 df6Well, Dominic Ford is right, and therefore I won’t be linking to or promoting his bareback content on this site. (Not that it’s possible to make money from advertising anything related to Dominic Ford, bareback or not.)

In all seriousness, Str8UpGayPorn wishes Dominic Ford the very best in this “new era” of being a bareback gay porn producer with four HIV-positive friends. And who knows? In 2016, a dead studio switching to bareback to try and reach new members is kind of like Donald Trump trying to reach African-American voters: What the hell have you got to lose?

    this is fucked up on so many levels.

    I will give credit to DF that he has been hustling for his website and has tried every gimmick possible to try to make it work.
    The only thing he, sadly, hasn’t tried is producing actual good gay porn.

  • Tellingthetruth

    Dominic Who?

    • Tellingthetruth

      Whoever he is, this horrific scene looks like a wannabe Treasure Island clip.

    Maybe it’s time to stop putting your money in producing porn and make a career elsewhere. There just doesn’t seem to be any room because every niche is filled and corporations own half of it.

    Tis the season to be grateful. We should thankful that our jobs secure us enough to uphold our integrity.

    I wish you the best of luck Dominic Ford, you filthy cum whore.

      Yeah, until one day you go and take a look in the mirror and you don’t even recognize your own face. Your health is fading and you don’t know why… 3. That has took you to your final resting place (Listen to me)

        I wish I didn’t find him so physically attractive (especially with facial hair).

          The ass tattoo is ridiculous. I feel sorry for the kid *so desperate for attention

        • lordgabux

          There are moments in his scenes that he looks a lot like Chris Pratt, so yeah I’m screaming yum yum yum, y’all!

    • moondoggy

      What you said, minus “guilty.” He said something idiotic for attention. I can forgive that.

      Did you remember my Debbie Reynolds gif after all that time or did you happen to come across it?

      • Dale Bergman

        I came across it last night while I was reading older articles. Her death after her daughter’s is so sad. I read that she said that she missed Carrie and wanted to be with her before she died.

    I don’t own a gay porn site. I’ve never done porn (not even filmed any for my own use later…as Sweet Brown once said rather prophetically, “ain’t nobody got time for that”). It escapes me however, as a survivor of the 80’s and the strains of HIV that actually killed you, and usually very quickly– how easy it has become to sell our souls for the sake of money, and do so at the expense of our health and well-being. I came out in the age in which contracting HIV usually resulted in taking your own life rather than live out the horrors ahead of you. I’m from the generation of gay men, lesbians, and others who finally had to organize and become so angry that we were arrested crying, and screaming…drug from pharmaceutical company lobbies, churches, hospitals, funeral homes and any other place that told us, “you’re diseased”, “you’re dirty and deserve this”; or “wait just a while longer until we can convince the government to provide more funding”. And we waited and tried to play by their rules…all the while watching friends, lovers and brothers and sisters we didn’t know very well wither like grapes on the vine, and die. There were no more three powerful letters in the human language than H-I-V. It meant suffering, alienation, shame and death.

    So sitting here and listening to porn actors, studios and others tell us that our health status isn’t important…no one’s business but your own….something to play fast and loose with so that you can do as you please, act irresponsibly and make more money shits on the memory of every single person who went before and lost their battle with this insidious disease. Ace Era is a handsome man. But it turns me inside out to watch him treat his body like a dump. It’s not hot or erotic. It’s sad. It’s like watching a glutton sit at a table and eat himself to death. How many of you would pay to see that?! Is it more intimate to watch someone acting in a way that makes them subject to any number of health issues so that we can have a good wank? What can it be about flirting with disease that makes sex more enjoyable to watch? What does that say about gay men now?

    I understand that we don’t know exactly all the ins and outs of how companies test (or what they actually do as opposed to what they say they do). But I do know that even PrEp isn’t the Magic Bullet/Gift from God everyone touted it to be. And are we 100% sure about dormancy periods and what models did even 10 minutes before a shoot? Willing to bet your health on it? And because of what I witnessed when I first came out in terms of HIV and other opportunistic infections, I DO think about the health and well-being of models when I watch porn. I want them to be safe and be healthy and stick around to keep making good wank material. When I hear of drug abuse, spousal abuse, alcoholism and the proliferation of STIs and HIV, I lose my hard-on. It’s not interesting, hot or anything close. It’s frightening. And I keep asking how much do we continue to hate ourselves by acting in these self-destructive ways? You’d think with the social advancements we’ve fought hard and earned in the last ten years, we’d be leading lives that celebrate our sexuality in ways that nurture and uplift. It’s like we’re a beautiful piece of fruit that is rotting from the inside out.

    I’m really about ready to walk away from porn altogether. I can’t enjoy or get off to product that continuously reminds me that the young, beautiful men engaging in it are basically playing Russian Roulette. So…I point the finger at any companies that intend to make money by doing anything that doesn’t cherish the health and well-being of their talent. I want to hold the talent more responsible, but I can’t gauge how desperate any of these young people are to make a living. I know we joke about their doing other work, but for whatever reason this is what they can do. So, by placing themselves in the hands of porn producers, they should be able to do so knowing everything we understand up to this date is being done to keep them safe. I just don’t think that’s usually the case. So, knowing that, and living my truth. I can’t enjoy this product. I just can’t.

      Empathy? Healthy living? Historical perspective? That’s it, turn in your Gay Card. You can’t be one of us if you’re going to spout such nonsense.

        GAWD. I know right!? Chalk it up to my sinus infection this week. It almost turned into bronchitis and I had a slight fever. Yeah, that’s what it was. For sure.

    • The gay green lartern

      God bless you! I admire you tremendously… family and health is all that matters that is it. Too bad $$$ money is the root of all evils

    I’d be curious to see the likes and retweets on the “The bareback scene everyone is talking about” tweet.

    As Several people have pointed out, wouldn’t making better porn be a way to save your site, crap bateback porn is still crap porn.

  • Scrapple

    Dom, sweetie, your “era” is so old your first scenes were probably called “talkies.” And your new “Era” is going to put you on the map. At the CDC.

    But the real question is, will this be presented in 3D?

    Throwing away the condom won’t magically make something better lol #Pathetic

  • The scene started with condoms so I thought it was all condom and stopped watching. So he made a mistake with that if he is trying to get BB viewers.

  • Maximus

    Writes, “In all seriousness,” but then continues to throw shade—that’s the cunty Zach snark that we’ve come to know and love.
