A NakedSword rep termed the project "a shift in focus from consumers to affiliates" so as to reposition the site as a portal geared to customers and webmasters.
"Now that NakedSword has merged with GunzBlazing, along with top studio Raging Stallion, webmasters will finally be able to promote NakedSword on their sites with an arsenal of cutting-edge affiliate tools," the rep said.
GunzBlazing President Brian Randall praised the strength of the NakedSword brand. "I'm excited to add one of the most recognizable consumer brands in the industry to our portfolio," he said.
"NakedSword is an excellent site for our affiliates to promote. They can now market the movies of some of the leading producers in the gay biz using our powerful range of tools and receive top payouts. It's a definite win for everybody involved."
New affiliates who sign up for NakedSword via GunzBlazing have the option of choosing a $40 per-trial join or a 60 percent revenue share.
The GunzBlazing affiliate toolbox includes a variety of banners, self-updating and static trailer players, "thumbnail and tube" galleries, downloadable zip files and more.
As well, NakedSword is offering a "seductively interactive clip player from within GunzBlazing," the rep said. "It serves up free preview clips of new releases in an innovative, iTunes-like interface."
"NakedSword has been the leading consumer gay porn brand for a decade. We've always had tremendous success marketing our site to consumers, so now we’re able to devote ourselves to affiliate marketing," said company CEO Tim Valenti.
"After years of fine-tuning our approach, we now have the tools in place to partner with webmasters in a multitude of different ways."
