Steven Lee, Devin Franco, Tristan Hunter, And More Star In Falcon’s The Pledge

Posted March 1, 2019 by with 52 comments

5822_the_pledge_masters_front_400x625Falcon’s “Pledge Master” franchise launched with The Pledge Masters (as seen above) all the way back in 1989. Then, there was New Pledgemaster in 1994 and Pledgemaster—The Hazing in 2008, as seen below.

pledgesIt’s been 11 years since the last movie, and a lot has changed in the gay porn industry, but Falcon has found an all new cast for yet another entry in the franchise, and this one is simply called The Pledge. Fun fact: All of the stars of The Pledge were not even born when the first movie in this franchise was released in 1989. Jesus Christ, I’m old.

Here’s the new cast, which includes Brandon Wilde—who’s actually been performing in gay porn for 10 years now—newcomer Colton Reece, Devin Franco, newcomer Steven Lee, newcomer Tristan Hunter, newcomer Nic Sahara, Trevor Miller, newcomer Tyson Rush, and Zak Bishop:

[Falcon: The Pledge]

    The original models were so much hotter without the horrible tattoos that are all over today’s guys. When you watched them in action, you saw all the muscles, hair and sweat working in sync and in all their glory, without any distraction or interference by ink. Tattoos have ruined more bodies than sugary drinks.

    • Todd

      Agreed.

      • hotsweetspot

        Hear. Hear. Agree wholeheartedly!!! (with lots of exclamation marks)

    • Kanaka

      Welcome to today gramps.

      • pje821

        Thanks. And when you grow up and move out of your parents’ basement you’ll realize people with opinions vote with their wallet — and companies appreciate the feedback and make changes.

    • Mike Cooper

      Agreed. Ironically Matthew rush started in falcon and had the most amazing muscle body, and still did, but got himself covered in ink and that ruined how beautiful his muscled body was for me.

      • John

        The meth was also a factor with Matt Rush.

    • stimmerpdx

      I see this comment so many times here. Get over it! In a quick google search 40% of people in in the more youthful age range have tattoos. It’s a personal choice that they want to put it on their body. It’s common today and not going away by your whiny comments.

      • pje821

        People can put whatever they want on their bodies; I don’t have to like it or pay to see it. You don’t seem to understand the difference.

      I’m laughing at “basic” having taken on a new meaning now. I can just see a new “Basic Plumbing” involving a bunch of average looking models with tool belts trying to make home repairs sound sexy and failing. Actually all those vids have me thinking of reimagined entries. “Through the Wood” makes me think of a Wesley Woods compilation where he has gay, straight and trans encounters. “Big Bang” would have some science vs. religion angle tied into gay conversion therapy. As for “High Tide” that’s too easy: A beach theme staring Michael Del Ray and lots of “party favors”

    • Baradude

      Big bang looks super hot

    • Kanaka

      Interestingly Pierre Fitch of Into the Woods and Matthew Anders of High Tide are still working.

  • Scrapple

    Why do I feel like the hazing at this frat involves having a brown paper back held up to your face? Not much has changed since ’89…

    I want nothing but the best things for Nic. And nothing but the best brows for Zak.

    Tyson managed to escape BSB for Falcon. Falcon in no way is what it was or should be, but that’s still quite the leap. Why Trevor keeps getting studio work I do not know. His performances are emotionless. But hey, if Falcon decides to do a parody of The Masked Singer at least they have someone who can play the lion.

    • Tempest

      Also I can’t help it but I feel lowkey bothered by the fact it’s a bareback movie when the last one featured Erik Rhodes. Yes, PrEP and all that but it sill does annoy the fuck outta me.

      That, and Trevor Miller/Chi Chi.

      • C A

        But, you have no issues with any other bareback studio, including GISP?

        • Tempest

          I have no issues with the likes of GISP and Chaosmen. Of course, there are other issues like the quality of the newbies over on CM and the incosistentcy of GISP, but nothing that’s linked to bb sex because I trust them to ensure that their guys are always working on a safe environment, unlike Falcon, especially after some of the tweets from other people. But this is on another level

          • C A

            Falcon was a condom only studio until now, why do you think they are going to half ass it?

          • Tempest

            I think they’ve been half assing things for a while, condoms or not. This is just another evidence. Poor choices of a cast and the fact it’s a bb sequel to the film that feautred Erik Rhodes. I think it’s a little bit disrespectful and I also think some brands should be left untouched.

          • C A

            Did Erik Rhodes get HIV or his Drug addiction on a Falcon set? The series existed long before Erik came to work for Falcon. Also, these companies are always going to get repetitive especially after being around over 20 years.

          • Tempest

            I remember that he went to RB and they required testing back then, that’s where they found he was HIV+. I don’t know if he abused drugs or got the virus on their sets, the point I’m trying to make is that in my opinion “major” porn studios going bare is a very cheap excuse in order to get some coins, which is even worse when there have been tweets about how Falcon handles their testings, and honestly I don’t want another Erik situation.

          • C A

            People have been talking about the hypocrisy for years and not much has changed. Recently, performers like Colby Jansen, Clark Parker and Pierce Paris have brought this up and kicked up a discussion that went nowhere. I think they should have more stringent rules, it pointing the finger at Falcon seems baseless.

            Erik Rhodes was doing Meth, Taking Steroids and Escorting. However, he got HIV he was engaging in a lot of high risk behavior. Erik was broken before he got into porn, it was sad someone so young passed, but blaming a condom only studio isn’t going to help anyone or anything. These performers on Prep seem to believe it’s an answer for everything and it isn’t.

          • Tempest

            I think one of the jobs of a porn studio is to help their performers feel as safe and welcoming as possible. It’s why I think a psychological support is needed, these bitches be doing all sorts of crazy stuff and nobody is gonna slap them to show the light.

          • C A

            True. Although, it’s up to a certain point. Personal accountability also plays a big factor. These studios can’t control what these models do md cannot hand hold adults, no one should look to porn as an answer for anything.

      • Scrapple

        See, now you’re making me think about testing practices again and that whole mess with Erik, Falcon and Randy Blue. And look where we are now.

        • Tempest
          • Scrapple

            By strangers. Not the “family” they’ve worked with for several years…

          • Tempest

            You’d think that the whole industry could learn the lesson, but here we are, business doing business, again.

          • Scrapple

            In porn and in life, people have to make educated decisions about their sexual health. And that includes tested sex with condoms, untested sex with condoms, tested bareback sex and untested bareback sex. Nothing is foolproof and nothing is without risks. So long as people weigh their choices, make their choices of their own volition without feeling pressure to do something they don’t want to do and have the correct info available, I’m fine with it. In porn that’s not always the case and that’s when things get dicey. Especially when some studios go the “Straight Outta High School” route with models who may not know better or may not have enough confidence to say no.

          • Tempest

            That’s why I feel uncomfortable with all these 18 years old flooding this industry like crazy, even more so in this day and age with the likes of OF basically making porn available for everyone. I believe a psychological support is needed for these dudes if they don’t want to turn into corpses. I don’t think they are really aware of the risks due to the fact that there is very little info about the general sex education, most of the time they’ll learn on their own and make false assumptions, I think there should be a system that guides these boys and shows them everything they need to know, it’s up to each one of them to make their best decision possible and be educated about them, maybe then we won’t hear another Erik or even Kyle Dean story on the web.

          • Scrapple

            There is a system that guides them. It’s called the casting couch.

          • Tempest

            Now you reminded me about those GayCastings videos.

          • Tempest

            Aaannd… now that NDS has bought even Falcon I think I’m gonna try not to cut someone.

          • Zachary Sire

            NDS did not buy Falcon lol. NDS/Gamma have managed the Falcon (and hot house/raging) website for years, they handle content uploads and billing, and tech issues. Falcon is still owned by AEBN.

          • Tempest

            Are you sure? Is that why you deleted the post? Someone told me they changed ownership, guess it’s a lie.

          • Scrapple

            They did? I missed that memo.

  • hotsweetspot

    I thought Brandon Wilde had become irrelevant and had retired. Is he trying to make a comeback?

    • FrenchBug

      Are you kidding? He had a period where he slowed things down but he has been VERY active on B-tier sites in the past couple of years.

  • PaulieP

    Ken Ryker and the original guy were box cover gold when those were released. This new crop doesn’t nato have the same appeal. Sorry. Nothing I want to see there. There was something about the original two.

  • Mike

    So no real use of the crop or paddle. Yawn! BTW, stop with all of the whining about tattoos.

    • pje821

      This is an opinion forum. I hate all those effin tattoos and will never stop “whining” about them. They’ve ruined porn for me. I’ve been around long enough to remember when models weren’t covered in ink, and IMO were far hotter. If you like them, great; you’ve got countless scenes to watch. I’ve dropped/cancelled subscriptions because of them, and my choices today are few, even though there’s a lot more porn around. Again, my opinion.

  • Tempest

    Trevor Miller?

    Bare?

    Chi Chi?

    Not interested.

  • CamCam

    Looking at this preview just reminds me of how Falcon today is a shell of its old self. The films were so much hotter in the last with everyone doing more than they do today. It’s really sad.

  • Baradude
  • NastyPig

    Gay porn can’t sink any lower. Trash fucks trash.

  • Daniel Hayes

    I’m sorry, but that looks boring… And Chi Chi needs to retire, it’s 2019, for god’s sake…

  • Joleil Ashwind

    Yeah I’m laughing like Jafar, that is all.

  • Eric from Sweden

    I miss Eric Rhodes.

  • One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: that word is love.

  • Dave Netherton

    When you put this movie side by side in context with the other releases in series you can definitely see the reduction in quality of the performers. I definitely miss real porn from the 80’s & 90’s.

  • Jonny Marzetti

    Ahhh, Steve Hammond (top pic). Alas, he didn’t *really* fuck anyone in the Pledge Masters. That was from the era of frequent stunt-dicking, back when studios like Falcon and Matt Sterling’s Huge hadn’t yet fully transitioned to condoms. In fact, Hammond’s fucking was all stunt-dicked in all his videos, except in “Mission Accomplished” where he used a condom.
