SAN FRANCISCO — Falcon/Raging Stallion Studios announced today that it will acquire the assets of Hot House Entertainment, creating what it calls the “world’s largest gay erotic company.” 

Hot House president Steven Scarborough also announced that he will retire from the industry after a 27-year career. Falcon/Raging Stallion president Chris Ward will head the combined operations.

“We are excited to bring Hot House into the AEBN family of companies,” Ward said. “I started my own career at Hot House so it is very significant for me to bring Steven’s company to Falcon/Raging Stallion. We plan to preserve and protect Steven’s outstanding legacy and continue filming in the Hot House tradition and style. Just as I worked hard to protect the Falcon legacy after the Falcon/Raging Stallion merger, I intend to make sure that Hot House fans keep getting exactly what they want.”

Scarborough offered his own thoughts on the future of Hot House as part of the Falcon/Raging Stallion mega-studio, “Because I came from Falcon and because Chris came from Hot House, I feel this deal is a perfect fit. I reached out to Chris because of our long history together. I am absolutely confident that Chris and his team will continue the Hot House tradition, which is something very, very important to me. I look forward to seeing Hot House remain an industry leader for years to come.”

Opportunities to expand the Hot House brand include making the 300-title catalog available on Cable TV through AEBN’s Align Broadcast group, which has become a leading player in the U.S. domestic cable marketplace. 

Hot House, founded in 1993 after Scarborough left Falcon, quickly became one of the industry’s top studios, known for filming high-quality mainstream erotic films and also launching the Club Inferno video line. Ward began his own adult career directing for the Club Inferno line before he went on to found Raging Stallion Studios with JD Slater in 1999. Raging Stallion and Falcon combined forces in 2012, all under the AEBN corporate umbrella.  Adding Hot House into the mix now brings the three studios full circle.

Christian Owen, the current film director at Hot House, will continue with the new venture.  Director of Hot House Operations Rob LeVan will also remain in place as director of operations for the studio group.

In announcing his retirement, Scarborough ends a career that began at Falcon in 1987, where he served for many years as the studio’s head director and Chuck Holmes’ right-hand man.  Scarborough was instrumental in developing niche films at Falcon, which he continued when he started Hot House. Hot House remains the premier "ass-play" studio, with its website ClubInfernoDungeon.com. 

Hot House movies are offered on the studio’s flagship website, HotHouse.com. All Hot House, Falcon, and Raging Stallion membership sites are part of the Buddy Profits affiliate program.  Films from all three studios are available on VOD at AEBN.com.
