February Funk

I know things have been pretty quiet around here lately, and I apologize for not communicating with everyone sooner.

My grandmother died during surgery last week and I just got back in town after being with family for most of the past week. I lost my grandfather and uncle last year, but this one has been even tougher for me to grieve and process because unlike my other grandparents when they died, or even my uncle who had suffered from Parkinson’s, my grandma was still mentally alert and physically active and so full of life. I had just been talking with her on the phone about the TV show “This Is Us” less than 24 hours before she died. And even though we knew the surgery involved some risk, none of us expected such a tragic outcome.

On the bright side, she was almost 88 years old and had lived a very full and happy life, so there’s at least some comfort in knowing that she died peacefully and without any of the suffering that would have come with a massive stroke or heart attack, etc. Of course the loss felt is no less intense.

Needless to say, this has disrupted and delayed my usual work and production schedule, but hopefully not too terribly much. I’m finally back in town and working hard to catch up and hopefully have our next new scene ready by some time later next week.

Thanks for your patience and understanding during this difficult time, and rest assured there are some big and exciting developments taking place behind the scenes as we do our best to bring you an epic Winter/Spring Season you will never forget!

Important Announcement: Montez Joins BBA As Full-Time Manager & Marketing Director

As the new year gets underway, I just wanted to take a moment to share some exciting news and major changes taking place behind the scenes.

By now, most of you have at least heard of Montez, and even “met” him through his entertaining cameos in the Detroit After Dark series and Halloween Party. A long-time BBA fan going all the way back to the early Blue Futon days of Jay and Cortez, Montez first began corresponding with me by email back in the summer of 2014 about a shared social media crush. This led to more serious conversations about BBA’s lack of social media (other than this blog), and Montez generously volunteering to help us change that.

Taking on the role of BBA’s Marketing Director, Montez launched the BBA Tumblr and built it from scratch into a popular and entertaining resource for BBA-related news, previews, gifs, contests, and feedback for a large and ever-growing number of followers.

More recently, he started BBA’s Instagram and Twitter accounts, and organized our first public appearance at Detroit’s Hotter Than July Pride last summer. He has also played a pivotal role in bringing fan favorites like Blake Bishop, Shazeer, Rico Pruitt, and Manny Killa to the site.

With his skills and years of experience in both marketing and business management, Montez has not only proven himself to be an invaluable asset to the BBA team, but he has also become a close and trusted personal friend.

In an industry with a reputation for shady dealings and shameless back-stabbing, the kind of mutual loyalty, professionalism, and TRUST I’ve found with Montez is a truly rare and treasured thing. And when Montez recently came to a crossroads in his own career, it presented the perfect opportunity for me to finally offer him a position as BBA’s very first full-time salaried staff. (more…)

Michael Galletta Counts Down BBA’s Ten Best Scenes of 2017

There’s no denying that 2017 was one wild roller-coaster ride of a year, both personally and professionally. But even with its many ups and downs, and an update schedule that was admittedly all over the map at times as a result, I’m relieved and proud to be able to say that 2017 still turned out to be a pretty damn AMAZING year overall, leaving us with some truly unforgettable BBA classics that we’ll be watching and talking about for years to come.

Which brings me to my list of BBA’s Ten Best Scenes of 2017, the scenes which for a variety of reasons explained below are the ones that stood out from a VERY crowded pack as my proudest achievements and personal favorites from the past year:

(In Ascending Order)

#10. New York Nights: Monster Smash

It may surprise some of you to see our Halloween Party show up on this list. But I honestly had no choice BUT to include this scene when I realized just how many times I’ve “enjoyed” it in my free time 😉 .

There’s just something about seeing sexy straight basketball player Isaiah turned into the scene’s “bitch” as he’s aggressively TAG-TEAMED and stuffed with raw dick at both ends, that gets me EVERY single time. BBA “comfort food” at its best, this scene has quickly turned into the kind of trusted treat that I know I can always turn to for an instant and satisfying release at the end of a long day.

#9. Manny’s Money Moves

In a year overshadowed by outstanding performances from veteran models, this sweet and sensual encounter between two of our newest models came out of nowhere to become a year-end smash hit. And it’s crazy to think how close it came to never happening at all!

Proving once again that sometimes unplanned scenes are the best, what came depressingly close to being a total disaster turned out to be one of our most surprisingly passionate scenes of the year. The intense attraction and undeniable chemistry between Manny Killa and Luh Redd will no doubt be envied and enjoyed by all the BBA romantics out there for many years to come.

#8. Training Trapp

Destined to become a BBA classic, this was quite possibly the most steamy action between “straight” guys that I’ve EVER filmed! Saint once again shined in the role of “gay for pay” mentor, unleashing a repressed freaky side of Trapp we’d only seen glimpses of in his first scene.

Their dark, tangled bodies glistening with baby oil and sweat as they roll around naked on the floor for our private entertainment, putting on a show so intensely homoerotic it could have made the Ancient Greeks blush, proved once again that you don’t always need hardcore action for a scene to earn multiple “nutts”!

#7. Detroit After Dark: Episode One

The Detroit trilogy was definitely the highlight of BBA’s summer, and one of my proudest achievements all year. But if I had to choose just one of the three scenes that best captured the humor, spontaneity, and sexual energy that defined the weekend of our very first public appearance at Hotter Than July Detroit Pride, this scene would be it.

From the new “reality TV” style editing that shared an intimate and entertaining peek at some of the personalities, laughter, and fun taking place behind the scenes, to the thrilling sight of popular actor turned “porn star” Rico Pruitt submitting to a merciless pounding from Bandit‘s raw dick, this scene had everything you could ever want from a summer porn blockbuster 😉 .

#6. Scotty: The Next Level

This just might go down as one of the most shocking and satisfying “conquests” in BBA history – and that’s including scenes where the straight guy has actually “gone all the way”! What Scotty ends up doing by the end of this shoot was almost UNTHINKABLE when he showed up for his first shoot, and even heading into THIS shoot, I had no idea it would happen.

A return to BBA’s roots with the kind of spontaneous, sparely edited scene I used to film back in the good ol’ days of the BBA Futon, this unforgettable “gay for pay” classic takes viewers behind the scenes to experience every suspenseful and SHOCKING second of an epic “straight boy seduction” right along with me, in close to real time as everything unfolded that night.

#5. Show and Tell

I don’t think I’ve ever been more wrong about a scene than I was about this one right after we filmed it. The shoot itself was extremely long, stressful, and pushed my patience to its near breaking point. I even had serious doubts about whether BBA’s viewers would like Trapp. Boy, was I wrong!

Not only did Trapp turn out to be the breakout “gay for pay” star of last year, but over time I’ve gradually grown to appreciate this scene for what it truly is: one of the most hilarious, unpredictable, and thoroughly ENTERTAINING scenes of the year!

From the comical bickering and flirtatious banter between these two real-life straight friends from the ‘hood, to the shocking ways they expand and test the limits of that friendship before the night’s over, this was one of those special scenes that had us stroking our dicks and laughing out loud at the same time!

Important Announcement Re: Revised Update Schedule

I know a lot of you seem to think I’m some kind of sadist sitting on a beach somewhere, sipping margaritas and counting stacks of money and laughing at BBA’s members while making them anxiously wait for the next website update, LOL. But nothing could be further from the truth!

The reality is that BBA consumes the vast majority of my life and my time (at a MINIMUM, 70 hours a week), and I work my ass off each and every week to plan, film, edit, process, publish, and promote the new scenes that go up on the site. Most weeks I’m trying to edit a lengthy action scene out of literally HOURS of raw footage, a process that can be extremely slow and time-consuming. I do this because I’m truly passionate about what I do and want only the best for BBA’s loyal viewers and fans.

Creating the kind of unique and exciting content that you’ve come to crave and expect is ALWAYS going to be my #1 priority and goal. Sometimes this means taking an extra few hours to create a “previously on” intro montage to enhance a scene with added context and suspense. Or devoting an extra hour or two to making subtitles for parts of quiet or mumbled dialogue that I know will make the scene ten times hotter.

Sometimes these types of creative choices result in scenes going up on the site several hours or even a day or two later than planned. Sometimes it means taking entire weekends off to focus on special trips and production plans. As a long-time porn consumer myself, I’m sympathetic to the frustration and impatience that comes with having to wait for new content. But at the end of the day, I am ALWAYS going to prioritize creating the hottest possible content over meeting an arbitrary and creatively restrictive deadline.

With this in mind, I’ve come to the humbling realization over the past several months that I simply can’t keep up with the expensive and exhausting pace of production demanded by a weekly schedule, at least not if I want to continue producing the kinds of unique, lengthy, and often costly scenes that I’m proud to share with BBA’s members.

Too often, this has led to situations where I feel pressured into posting inferior and disappointing content just to keep up with an unrealistic schedule. And more often than not, viewers end up feeling just as frustrated and disappointed by the weak update as they would have been if I’d posted nothing at all!

After consulting with Montez and other peers in the industry, I’ve made the difficult decision to scale BBA’s update schedule back to THREE updates a month instead of four, with the updates still being posted on Fridays. The “off” weekends will vary depending on my travel and production schedule, and on these weekends I think I’m going to try something new by highlighting classic scenes from the archives that BBA’s viewers might have forgotten about or simply never discovered – at discounted rates for a limited time.

As always, my goal will continue to be delivering unique and unforgettable scenes on enough of a regular basis that a monthly subscription will still be worthwhile. If for whatever reason, you don’t feel like this is the case, or your personal porn tastes tend to be pretty narrow, then I’d encourage you to check out our credits alternative that allows you to enjoy BBA’s content on a scene by scene basis. Your credits will never expire, and you can spend them only on the models and scenes that really interest you.

If you want sloppy and forgettable 20-minute scenes featuring the same over-exposed “porn stars” over and over, then there are certainly other sites that will offer that like clockwork at the same exact time every week – and in most cases, charge you MORE in the process. I could easily update the site every week if I was settling for that same shitty standard.

If, on the other hand, you value the types of lengthy, unique scenes that BBA offers, then I hope you’ll be able to respect and appreciate the time, expense, and hard work that goes into making them possible and understand this much-needed change in the update schedule.

My hope is that this adjusted schedule will provide a bit more breathing room for the creative process and allow me to focus more on quality over quantity, ultimately resulting in a better and more consistently satisfying experience for EVERYONE going forward.

Summer Schedule Update

Sorry for being such a stranger here on the blog lately! Hope everyone had a safe and fun holiday weekend.

It’s been a pretty crazy summer around here so far…..I’ve been robbed at gunpoint by a former model (thankfully nobody was hurt), our first attempt at a public appearance was a total disaster (more on that later), I found myself less than 15 feet away from a grizzly bear in the Canadian Rockies (again, thankfully nobody got hurt), had to cut ties with a sleazy and dishonest business associate after catching him in an elaborate betrayal and scam, and on top of everything else been battling a miserable cold for over a week.

Not exactly your ordinary, average summer so far, LOL! But then again, anyone who’s been following this blog for any length of time already knows this has been anything but an ordinary life ever since I started BBA nearly ten years ago.

I’m happy to hear that the vast majority of you have been enjoying the fresh faces and exciting new scenes we’ve been bringing you lately. I know the recent update schedule has been far from ideal, but at the same time I personally think this year overall has featured some of our best and hottest scenes ever and I’m extremely proud of the content we’ve been bringing our loyal members so far. And the year’s still only halfway over!

Since my personal and production schedules are still far from back to normal, I’ve decided to continue with the unconventional, two updates every other week schedule for at least one more month. I honestly don’t like this any more than most of you seem to, and I have no intentions of making this a permanent change, but for now it’s the best and easiest way for me to continue bringing you the same amount of new content on a still somewhat regular basis.

And just to clarify, BBA’s monthly subscribers are still receiving the same number of updates, just spaced out a bit differently than usual. I hope to resume the regular weekly schedule some time in August.

Thanks for your continued patience with this temporary summer schedule. Hope everyone enjoys the TWO hot and lengthy new scenes just posted this past weekend, and while you’re anxiously waiting for next weekend to arrive, please enjoy the MANY hot and action-packed scenes from the past couple months, and/or any of the other 300-plus scenes currently available to BBA’s monthly subscribers.

I’m also going to try to take some time to catch up on responding to your questions and feedback, so be sure to be on the lookout for that as well.

Spring Season 2017 Kick-Off (Coming Soon!)

I just wanted to let everyone know that we’ll be resuming the regular weekly schedule and officially kicking off BBA’s Spring Season starting next week (March 9th/10th).

I’m relieved and happy to be able to report that production of new content is finally back in full swing, and recent video-shoots have been VERY productive and successful so far. I can’t even begin to express how excited I am to start sharing with you some of the hot surprises in store for our upcoming Spring season. I’ll try to post some preview pics and teasers in the near future.

While frustrating and regrettable to be sure, this recent break from the weekly schedule has reminded me of a couple very important but easily forgotten things:

First, just how much I LOVE my dream job of making hot porn! Not that I ever STOPPED loving it, but sometimes it’s easy to get bogged down in the pressures and stress of keeping up with the weekly schedule, and lose sight of why I started doing this in the first place.

Nobody takes it harder than I do when setbacks and disruptions keep me from delivering the kind of high-quality content that I strive to bring BBA’s viewers year round. But these recent shoots have been an enormous and encouraging relief, and reminded me just how much fun this job can be when I have a little creative room to breathe and things actually go according to plan!

The second thing I’ve been reminded of these past couple weeks is that BBA really does have the BEST FANS in the business! And I’m not talking about the thieves and cheapskates and freeloaders who call themselves “fans” but only watch what they’re able to find on illegal piracy sites. No, I’m talking about the TRUE, passionate, loyal, dedicated fans who consistently show their love and support by subscribing and/or buying credits on a regular basis, many of you since the early X-Tube and good ol’ Blue Futon days!

I was fully prepared for all kinds of anger and negativity to be hurled in my direction when I posted that blog announcement a few weeks ago, but instead I have received nothing but an outpouring of encouragement and support from the vast majority of you over these past couple weeks.

It’s always nice being reminded that my hard work is enjoyed and appreciated by so many passionate and loyal viewers all over the world, especially during difficult down-times like this. The words of support and encouragement expressed by so many of you over these past couple weeks have been more inspiring and rejuvenating than you’ll ever know!

By the way, if you have an active BBA membership and haven’t yet contacted me about the free month or complimentary credits, please email me at michael@blackboyaddictionz.com and I’ll be happy to take care of that for you right away.

Thanks for your patience while we continue working hard behind the scenes to bring you fresh faces and exciting surprises for what I hope will be an unforgettable Spring Season and rest of 2017. STAY TUNED  😉 !

Michael Galletta Counts Down BBA’s Ten Best Scenes of 2016

Despite being a downright AWFUL year when it came to things like the presidential election, celebrity deaths, and just about everything else, I can thankfully say that when it came to BBA, 2016 was actually a very good year!

It introduced some of the hottest new models I’ve filmed in years and left us with some truly unforgettable BBA classics that we’ll be watching and talking about for years to come.

If there was any one overarching theme for the year, I’d say it was probably a return to BBA’s roots. Of course this sometimes confused and even pissed off newer viewers expecting more conventional gay action scenes, while reminding and reassuring long-time viewers that we haven’t forgotten what makes BBA irreplaceable and unique.

Instead of featuring special guests and high-profile “take-downs” like we have in years past, we kept things simple and returned our focus to one of BBA’s original and most popular themes: seducing straight black boys and finding out just “how gay they will go” for the right price!

Which brings me to my list of BBA’s Ten Best Scenes of 2016, the scenes which for a variety of reasons explained below are the ones that kept me “cumming” back for repeat viewings again and again, and stood out from a crowded pack as my proudest achievements and personal favorites:

(In Ascending Order)

#10. But That’s My Homeboy!

Technically not much more than a two-for-the-price-of-one solo “audition,” some might be surprised to see this scene show up on my list. But “solo” or not, there’s no denying that this was also one of the most hilarious, unpredictable, and thoroughly ENTERTAINING video-shoots I filmed all year!

From the comedic interview that perfectly conveyed the cute and endearing closeness of these two real-life straight best friends from the ‘hood better than any professional porn script ever could, to the hilariously awkward shower encounter that found them standing side by side NAKED for the VERY FIRST TIME, this was one of those rare scenes that had us stroking our dicks and laughing out loud at the same time!

#9. His New Stepbrother

This fun little departure from our usual “reality porn” format to experiment with a more scripted role-playing fantasy ended up creating some of the most vividly erotic images from any scene we produced all year. Whether it was cute “baby brother” Kody‘s tempting bubble-butt popping up and out of his sagging jeans while sprawled out on the couch watching TV, or the playful roughhousing that leads to Kody sharing a bubble bath with his “big brother” Shazeer in soaking wet clothes and eventually leaning in for their taboo first kiss, this was a “forbidden fantasy” brought unforgettably to life through these and other striking images seared into our erotic imaginations.

#8. How Gay Will They Go?

A sentimental throwback to such BBA classics as The Competition and How Gay Will He Go?, this was one of several hot scenes from the year that proved you don’t always need hardcore fucking for a scene to earn multiple “nutts”!

From the taboo thrill of seeing Bandit put another man’s dick in his mouth for the VERY FIRST TIME, to watching he and Zadian awkwardly tongue-kiss and fake-fuck each other as they competed to “out-gay” each other for a bonus cash prize, this spontaneous “gay for pay” competition explored and celebrated all the various subtle and surprising ways that cocky straight boys will compromise their “straightness” for cash!

#7. No Holes Barred

Sure, the wrestling was a little corny and fake, but who the hell cares if it means two muscular straight black men as smoking hot as Apollo and Stephon rolling around naked on the floor for your private entertainment, their tangled, sweaty bodies grasping and groping in a determined effort to take the other guy down (in more ways than one)!

Fan favorite Stephon‘s long-awaited return after more than TWO YEARS turned out to be well worth the wait, and included him meeting up with one of BBA’s biggest “gay for pay” stars, finally taking another black guy’s dick RAW  for the VERY FIRST TIME, and even SWALLOWING CUM by the end of the scene!

#6. Bandit Bends Over

If you’d told me earlier this year that one of my favorite scenes from 2016 would include my raw white dick plunging in and out of Bandit‘s cute muscle-butt, or him sucking my dick right out of his own freshly-fucked ass, I would have said you were crazy and laughed you right off of the blog! But REAL LIFE has a funny way of working things out in even hotter ways than scripted porn ever could, as we learned firsthand when this sexy, horse-hung straight boy from the ‘hood finally bent over to pay back his bail with the only payment method he could afford! “Not a charity,” INDEED 😉 !

This was BBA stripped down to its raw, taboo core, and a sizzling summer treat for anyone who’d been wanting to see Big Dick Bandit finally “taken down” and tamed into submission!

#5. Spring Break Showdown

When I finally brought together BBA’s two most popular straight models of all time for one of the most requested scene pairings in BBA history, the results were no less explosive than one would expect.

The chemistry between Apollo and Isaiah – both athletic straight guys with girlfriends and young sons waiting for them at home – was off the charts, and the sound of Apollo moaning, “Yeah, baby, you fucking the shit out of me!” in his sexy Southern accent while Isaiah’s huge, RAW dick plunders his flawless bubble-butt is enough to make you bust every time. Of course seeing Apollo return the favor by plunging his own eager dick in and out of Isaiah’s amazing ass makes this an instant “flip-flop” classic that you truly have to see to believe!

BBA’s Winter Blues

In case you missed my announcement on the blog and website last week, I’ve been dealing with some difficult and time-consuming challenges in my personal life recently that have unfortunately disrupted BBA’s usual production schedule. And while I’d hoped it wouldn’t have to come to this, I’ve finally decided to take a brief break from the weekly schedule and hopefully return with something new and exciting the week before Christmas.

This was a difficult decision to make, but ultimately I’d rather devote my limited time and energy to closing out an otherwise exciting and memorable year with the hottest possible scenes than continue posting solo scenes or bonus footage that will probably only frustrate and disappoint most of you anyways.

Contrary to what some of you seem to think, the LAST thing I ever want to do is leave BBA’s viewers feeling disappointed or ripped off. And with that in mind, I’ve asked CCBill to credit all current/active BBA members with a *FREE MONTH* to make up for this unfortunate delay between updates as well as the admittedly lackluster couple weeks before that. The regular weekly schedule will hopefully resume later this month.

Rest assured there are some exciting developments taking place behind the scenes, and hopefully at least a couple hot surprises to close out the year and welcome in the new year to come!

Thanks to each and every one of you for your encouragement and support for however long you’ve included BBA as part of your life! I know that I can sometimes get impatient and defensive with a small handful of the more repetitively negative and vocal critics here on the blog, but I do try to remind myself and the models every single day that none of this would be possible without BBA’s loyal members and fans! Including those of you who’ve been threatening to leave and never come back for many years now 😛 .

Based on my conversations with other producers as well as what I’ve witnessed on other blogs and site forums, I really do believe that BBA has the BEST and MOST PASSIONATE fans in the business! And I’m extremely humbled and proud of that fact. Fingers crossed that I’ll be able to show my gratitude with a special Christmas gift before the year’s end!

If you have any questions about this brief hiatus and/or membership extension, please feel free to contact me directly at michael@blackboyaddictionz.com.

BBA’s Fall Break (American Apocalypse Edition)

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will not be updating the website this week.

Like many of you this past week, I have been reeling with shock, anger, disgust, and despair in response to one of the most historic and truly terrifying political events of my lifetime. With the help of family and friends, and even a few long-time BBA fans, I have been struggling to comprehend what the FUCK  just happened, and what exactly it means for my friends, my family, my models, my future, BBA’s future, and most importantly, this country’s future.

Needless to say, the shocking events of this past week have been consuming all of the time, attention, and energy that would normally be devoted to bringing you a hot and lengthy new scene like I usually do every Thursday.

I’m truly sorry that I’m unable to provide the kind of comfort and escape that so many of us are desperately needing right now.

The regular schedule will be resuming next week. In the meantime, please enjoy the many hot and action-packed scenes from the past couple months, and/or any of the other *over 300* unique and lengthy scenes currently available to BBA’s monthly subscribers. Thanks for understanding!

The Hole Less Traveled

Ross Asshole Gif

I think it’s probably fair to say that BBA is quite possibly the ONLY black and interracial gay porn site that tends to focus more on ASS than on dick.

It’s funny, because I never set out with the conscious intention of making BBA such a uniquely ass-centric site, but it’s definitely turned out that way – much to the confusion and consternation of many unsuspecting “bottoms” who sign up expecting and hoping for the stereotypical norm. (Not that we don’t appreciate “big black dicks” around here, LOL….but they’re certainly not revered and fetishized like they are on most “ethnic” themed sites!).

I didn’t think it was even possible, but lately I swear I’ve been growing even more obsessed with the mysterious beauty of the young male ASSHOLE.

When I really step back to think about it, I know it’s a strange and unlikely part of the human body to inspire such intense lust and desire, but against all rational explanation, that tiny puckered prize still holds so much aesthetic beauty and erotic potential for me.

Just the other night, I found myself jacking off and busting an explosive “nutt” to nothing more than a close-up of one of the model’s tight, winking assholes!

Stephon Asshole Gif
Unlike a lot of black gay sites that frequently feature models with almost repulsively battered, gaping, swollen, disfigured, BUSTED OPEN assholes that look like they’ve been routinely gang-banged by an entire NFL locker-room at least twice a week for months if not years, LOL….Here at BBA, we’ve been pretty lucky because with only the rarest of exceptions, our models usually have some of the freshest, tightest, and prettiest young assholes you’ll ever see in gay porn!

From Shaun to Shazeer, Apollo to Armando, Blake Bishop to Bandit, we’ve discovered some true beauties just in this past year alone! And I know it might sound silly and cliche, but assholes really are just like snowflakes, no two ever seem to look exactly alike 😉 !

It would be almost impossible for me to pick my favorite, but if YOU had to choose, who would you say has the nicest asshole on BBA?
