Posted by Michael on February 1st, 2022
You’ve seen my own personal picks for the best scenes from the past couple years. And Montez and Shax Carter will soon be revealing their own personal Top 10 lists as well.
But now it’s YOUR TURN to let us know what you think by choosing YOUR favorite models and scenes from 2020/2021! (We decided to combine both years so you could select from a full year’s worth of content).
You’ll be able to see the voting results in live time to compare your own personal favorites with the rest of BBA’s members and fans.
To keep things as fair and accurate as possible, you’re only allowed to vote once, so please take your time and choose your answers carefully. In several of the categories, we’ve allowed up to three selections since there are so many models and scenes to choose from.
Please feel free to explain or defend any of your choices, or even share your own personal “Top Ten” lists as comments on this blog entry or tag us on Twitter @bbaddictionz and @bba_michael. We’d love to hear what you think!
Michael Galletta Counts Down BBA’s Ten Best Scenes of 2020 & 2021
Posted by Michael on February 1st, 2022
We decided to combine years since between both 2020 and 2021, we have about a full year’s worth of content.
It wasn’t easy, but here are the scenes which for reasons explained below are the ones that stood out as my proudest achievements and personal favorites from the past couple years:
(In Ascending Order)
#10. Bandit’s Beach House: Last Call
This one’s a sentimental and symbolic favorite for sure. After the stress and trauma of shutting down production for over a year due to COVID, this was a historic moment of excitement and hope and rebirth.
From the celebratory, collaborative FUN of creating the Intro at the BBA Bar, to the exuberant music, to Shax Carter‘s confident, stylish direction, to pairing two of BBA’s biggest “gay for pay” legends, this was the scene that proudly announced BBA’s triumph over the pandemic.
Of course the thrilling sight of Ross‘s tight asshole gripping and clinging and stretching outward with Bandit‘s every deep stroke, is also one I won’t soon forget!
#9. Surviving The Stallion
I’ll never forget the hilariously shocked look on Montez‘s face when we finished this shoot several hours early. All I could do was shrug and laugh because these newbies delivered more in two hours than most give me in SIX!
Of course Elijah deserves some credit for his impressive debut, bravely taking all 9 1/2 inches of Stallion‘s monster down his throat and deep inside his tight little baseball player butt.
But Stallion was the true star of this show, coming out of his shell to deliver one of the most sensual, dominant, and verbal performances I’ve ever witnessed in all the years I’ve been doing this – and in only his second scene!
#8. The Deep End
Chemistry between models can be a difficult thing to plan or predict, but when it happens, it’s pure porn magic. I usually just turn on my camera, try to shut the fuck up, and let the magic happen….
This was a perfect example of that kind of scene, sizzling passion and steamy fun from beginning to end. I know a shoot’s going well when I’m so entranced by the action that I accidentally “drown” my phone in the pool! 🤦♂️😅
#7. Practice Makes Perfect
Sometimes when a model like Scuba starts getting more experienced at taking dick, it’s easy to forget just how unlikely and exciting it was seeing his sweet young cherry popped and stretched open in those early days.
I have no idea how well this scene will hold up over time. All I know is that the sight of Scuba’s tight, hairy, near-virgin hole being split open and “broken in” by Dominic‘s raw dick would’ve landed a spot on my list for the year even if COVID hadn’t shut things down the very next week.
Of course seeing Dominic bend over & take Scuba’s intimidatingly thick dick in return was just icing on the cake(s)! 😈
#6. Bring Your Brother To Work Day
A pick that will no doubt be as controversial as the scene itself. Technically it’s nothing more than a glorified solo, and solos almost never land on my list.
But it also captures the raw, unscripted, intimate essence of old-school BBA. Even without the taboo twist, Rush proved himself to be one of the most exciting new young faces I’ve filmed in awhile, inspiring countless fan comparisons to the breathtakingly beautiful Kenny.
But the forbidden thrill of watching Ross coach (and later join) his real-life barely-legal baby brother through his first time ever getting naked on camera makes this one of the most unique, hilarious, and perversely ENTERTAINING things I’ve ever filmed!
#5. House of Whores #2
The rare sequel that is actually BETTER than the original! We always love to surprise, and I think it’s fair to say NOBODY saw Saxgotem‘s bottoming debut being in a GANG-BANG with two of the biggest dicks on the BBA roster.
In addition to being our most epic “conquest” of the year, it was also the most fun and creatively challenging project I worked on all year, a true artistic collaboration with some of my favorite people.
Bandit’s Beach House: A Look Back Before Moving Forward
Posted by Michael on September 4th, 2021
Now that our “Bandit’s Beach House” series has come to an end, I wanted to offer a few reflections and responses to some of the feedback we’ve received for this series.
Like I’ve mentioned in some of my previous replies on earlier scenes, we faced an avalanche of abysmal bad luck with our recruiting and plans for this trip.
I’m not exaggerating when I say that we went through AT LEAST a dozen different drafts of our planned models and shoots before ending up with what we actually filmed. If I tried telling you everything that happened, I promise you’d think I was making it up lol.
At a certain point, we just had to laugh and shrug our shoulders and make the best damn lemonade that we could! I say all of this not to offer excuses, but to assure you that we gave it our all and came up with the best possible scenes that we could considering the ridiculously bad luck we encountered.
It also just happened to work out that both of our new guys were cute gay bottom twinks, which I realize is not every viewer’s cup of tea. But these things tend to go in phases, and we’ll be bringing you plenty of new straight, bi-curious, and bisexual models in the weeks and months to come as well. It just didn’t work out for them to be a part of this particular series.
As a viewer and fan, I honestly haven’t liked all of these scenes either. Just ask Shax and Montez, they can confirm that my feedback behind the scenes has probably been more brutal than anything you guys have said in the comments! 😅
Another thing to keep in mind is that Shax Carter directed 5 out of the 7 scenes in this series, and his scenes tend to be more “scripted” and polished than my own. He comes from a professional background of Hollywood and TV commercial productions, and that understandably shapes his own style.
We’re still working together to figure out ways he can bring more of BBA’s spontaneous amateur vibe to his scenes. We’re also still figuring out the right balance between better equipment/production values and remaining true to our amateur roots. There will inevitably be some missteps and growing pains in that process.
(Shax, Montez, Bandit, & I toasting to the end of our first BBA trip after more than a year!)
To those who have been enjoying these recent models and scenes, THANK YOU for your enthusiastic and encouraging comments! We’re proud to have brought you some truly beautiful moments and stroke-worthy new scenes.
To those who have been disappointed after the long wait, thanks for the candid feedback and rest assured that we’re JUST GETTING WARMED UP! We already have a new batch of hot scenes, filmed by me, and more exciting fresh faces COMING SOON – including sexy new straight boys and a surprise special guest! So stay tuned!
Just for fun, here’s how I’d rank the scenes in this series, from my personal favorite to least favorite:
- Last Call
- Royal Treatment
- Contact High
- Challenge Accepted
- Fresh Meet
- Pool Boy

Future of the BBA Blog

Since the newly redesigned website now allows monthly subscribers and those with credits to leave comments, regardless of how they’re accessing the site, we’ve decided to stop announcing the website updates here on the blog. As things have evolved, it’s started to become redundant and unnecessary, and only a small handful of you still leave feedback here anyways.
Please continue to share your questions and feedback in the comments sections under individual scenes on the website, and we will reply and interact with you there just like we’ve always tried to do here.
You can also follow me (Michael) on Twitter here, and the main BBA account here, where we regularly share announcements, funny “Behind the Scenes” clips, teasers for upcoming scenes, clips from BBA scenes past and present, fun viewer polls, etc., as well as interact with our fans on a daily basis.
We won’t be discontinuing this blog or anything drastic like that. We will continue to post important announcements here. We also plan to begin posting more exclusive, original blog content….things like Behind the Scenes stories, profiles and “where are they now” updates for your favorite BBA models, sneak previews of coming attractions, and of course the famous annual “Best of BBA” polls at the end of each year.
If you’re not already signed up to receive email alerts for all of our blog updates, be sure to sign up on the left side of this page so you don’t miss a thing!
Just so you know, we did just post a new Thursday update, so be sure to head on over to the site to check it out and share your feedback there!
Website Update: Bandit’s Beach House – Protégé
Posted by Michael on July 29th, 2021
To celebrate our much-anticipated return after a long and difficult pandemic year, we’re bringing back BBA’s #1 model in his very own series starring more returning fan favorites and even a couple fresh faces.
We recently reunited with some of our favorite guys at a tropical getaway that we nicknamed “Bandit’s Beach House.” Our goal was to celebrate a return to “semi-normal” and enjoy some good, old-fashioned BBA fun.
“He looks just like a MINI-MANNY!” were the first words out of my mouth when our newest model Slim walked through the door after being picked up from the airport.
From their similar facial features to their skinny young bodies, this light-skinned 20-year-old could easily be mistaken for Manny Killa‘s cute baby brother. Which is only fitting, since Manny’s the one who first referred Slim to us.
Things kick off with these two recently reunited friends in the hot tub, reminiscing about the hilarious way they first met, and discussing Slim’s recent decision to join BBA.
They’re later joined in the hot tub by none other than returning fan favorite Stylez, hand-picked by Manny to be his young protégé’s first scene partner.
One look at Slim and Stylez was more than happy to do his BBA buddy this favor by taking the nervous newbie under his wing and welcoming him to the BBA Family like only he can!
Manny eventually leaves the two of them to get better acquainted, confident that Slim will be in capable hands for his official gay porn debut….
