True to form for the gay porn world, somebody at Corbin Fisher decided to write a completely shady, bitchy email to their entire customer base not-so-subtly calling out the fact that Sean Cody has been swallowed up by the Mindgeek empire.
Mindgeek insists that the Sean Cody product will not suffer as a result of the acquisition and that the staff isn’t leaving, but you have believe somebody on staff is likely cashing out soon.
And so Corbin Fisher is capitalizing on these doubts, and as Str8UpGayPorn pointed out, the email even goes so far as to suggest that Corbin Fisher is “the sole remaining independent, gay-owned, and gay-operated site focused on American college men.” While that is maybe, sort of, kind of true if you include the “focused on American college men” part, other companies like Randy Blue and CockyBoys are all of the other things (independent, gay-owned), and sometimes feature models who are in, or recently out of (or recently dropped out of) college. And of course NakedSword and Raging Stallion/Falcon/Hot House are independently operated despite ownership of the AEBN empire, and the brands retain gay ownership/operation.
Anyway, below is some of the email, which all leads up to a special “come back for the low low price…” offer.
Dear CF Fan and Friend,
It’s quite amazing just how many big changes have happened not only at CF, but in our industry as a whole since we first launched Corbin Fisher.
One thing we certainly could not have imagined, when we started Corbin Fisher 11 years ago, is that we’d find ourselves being the sole remaining independent, gay-owned, and gay-operated site focused on American college men.
Nonetheless, as friends in the industry have come and gone; as competitors and colleagues have been bought-out and consolidated with one another, or incorporated their brands and businesses in to the portfolio of properties owned by many of the largest [primarily straight] companies in the industry, that is precisely where we find ourselves.
We’re happy for our friends who’ve moved on to different pursuits, and wish them all the best. Being completely honest with all of you, we’ve also had opportunities – presented in quite tempting fashion to follow the same route.
As odd as it might seem, though, the prospect of financial rewards did not bring about the creation of Corbin Fisher, nor has it been our driving force in all these years since. At CF, we really do have a passion for bringing you stunningly hot guys, in high-quality videos and photos, and as part of an enjoyable user experience. After all, with all the ups and downs over these many years, an honest and true desire to be doing what we’re doing and sharing all of it with you, as well as our getting very real pleasure out of this, is essential to making it all worthwhile.
We’d like to extend to you the opportunity to come back to CF at a special price of $20.15 (or upgrade to a full CF subscription, if you’re already an ACM or ACS member) per month*, check us out, and see all that’s new at CF today. We’re quite convinced you’ll want to stick around, just as we have for over 11 years! In fact, we promise to do all we can to make you want to!
The Corbin Fisher Team
