Almost ten years into this crazy adventure called BBA, I think it’s safe to say that keeping to a consistent update schedule isn’t exactly one of my strengths, LOL. And quite honestly, unless BBA sells out and turns into some corporate mega porn site one of these days, I think this will probably always be the case.
That’s not to say I won’t continue striving to grow and improve in this area. I know it’s a source of great frustration for many of you. But I think it’s also worth pointing out the “Catch 22” at play here: the very same “inconsistency” many of you complain about also tends to go hand in hand with the kind of unique, lengthy content you clearly crave and are impatient to see.
It’s clear from some of the recent complaints that many of you still seem to have a VERY naive and unrealistic misconception that BBA’s scenes are somehow cheap, fast, and easy to make, and/or that I’m just sadistically sitting on a pile of completed scenes for the hell of it, when nothing could be further from the truth!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: BBA’s scenes aren’t the kind of product that can be churned out by some factory assembly line week after week. At least not the kind of content I’m interested in making!
If you want forgettable 15-minute scenes featuring the same over-exposed “porn stars” over and over, then there are plenty of other sites that can offer you that like clockwork at the same exact time every week. And usually charge you MORE for it in the process. I could EASILY update BBA at the same exact time week after week if I was settling for that same sloppy standard.
I understand that BBA’s monthly subscribers are paying their hard-earned money with an expectation of new scenes in return. And as a long-time porn consumer myself, I know it’s never fun to have to wait for new updates.
But at the end of the day, I am ALWAYS going to prioritize creating the hottest possible content over sticking to some arbitrary and creatively restrictive schedule. What happened last weekend is a perfect example of this.
Whenever I’ve been unable to fulfill my end of the bargain, which has admittedly been more often than I’d like, I’ve always offered complimentary extensions or made it up to our loyal monthly subscribers with extra content the following month. For example, I’m currently working hard behind the scenes to post FOUR updates this month as promised to make up for the lack of a third update last month. (Still not sure exactly when the next one will be ready, but likely around the middle of next week, possibly with another to follow shortly after that).
I guess the point I’m trying to make is that “consistency” can mean many different things. So sure, our update schedule will probably never be “consistent” in the conventional sense of updating on the same exact days and at the same exact times every month.
But for almost ten years now, BBA has established a proud and proven track record of delivering CONSISTENTLY unique and original content starring some of the hottest guys you’ll ever see in gay porn. We CONSISTENTLY communicate with our fans about production delays and make it up to our monthly subscribers when things don’t go according to plan (seriously, what other black gay website does this?). And last but not least, we have CONSISTENTLY (and proudly) kept our monthly subscription rate at the same low price we started with when we first launched the site.
Ultimately it’s up to you the consumer to decide which type of consistency you value the most, and whether or not the above-average scene lengths and overall QUALITY of our models and content delivered throughout the year are worth the relatively minor inconvenience of occasionally having to wait.
If you truly value the kind of surprising, stroke-worthy action and exciting new faces that BBA consistently offers….as even our most vocal and vicious critics seem to do…. then please show some respect and appreciation for the time, expense, hard work, and yes, occasional brief breaks in the update schedule that make this type of content possible.
