Porn these days is a diverse environment in which new technologies and reasonable budgets allow pastiches of modern culture such as the recent Fuckemon Go (no, really).  Such is the publicity they wanted for this film that there’s even a ‘safe’ trailer.  See below:

 

I apologise in advance for any childhoods ruined by viewing this.  The full trailer has an extra few explicit moments at the end which you can view here (NSFW).  Is it me of does Ash (aka Johnny rapid) sound like Divine when he declares at the end that he’s “going to be the greatest Pokemon trainer in the whole world”?   Oh deary dear.

Anyway, you could be left longing for the halcyon days of gay porn past by all this.  Well, Seed Money: The Chuck Holmes Story is a documentary coming to a variety of streaming platforms this October and it might just help provide some of that nostalgia.

Holmes was the founder of the legendary porn studio, Falcon (NSFW).   It’s as studio still known for its production values and long history of well known porn performers who have passed through the studio.  Holmes and Falcon were transformative for the industry and the lives of countless gay men.

From reading The Sword story on the documentary (NSFW – some side ads are explicit), it’s been a real community-based projects preserving an important story of porn and culture. The documentary looks absolutely brilliant from this trailer and I’m really looking forward to watching it.  The film also clearly has the potential to make this story more mainstream and reveal how porn money had a significant impact on the wider culture, politics, and ultimately, the law itself.  I’m not sure we can say the same about Fuckemon Go.
