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  😉 !

Cast Your Votes For The Best of BBA 2016!

You’ve seen my own personal picks for the best scenes from last year. Now it’s YOUR TURN to let me know what you think by choosing YOUR favorite models and scenes from 2016! 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, I’ve allowed up to three selections since there are so many models and scenes to choose from.

If you feel like explaining or defending any of your choices, or want to share your own personal “Top Ten” lists for the year, please feel free to share as comments on this blog entry. I’d love to hear what you think! If you have any ideas or requests for additional polls, just let me know and I’ll consider adding them.

If you have an active BBA membership and/or BBA credits, please also take a few minutes to “like” your favorite BBA models and scenes if you haven’t already. Especially your older favorites from before the website redesign, since the newer models and scenes tend to get more visibility and attention when it comes to the “likes.”

I hope everyone has fun picking out their favorites and reminiscing with me about the exciting past year!

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.

And The Winner Was…

bba_banditandzadian_blog2
Several of you have been asking me lately who ended up winning the bonus cash prize between Bandit and Zadian for their participation in what turned out to be one of BBA’s most unique, entertaining, and polarizing scenes of the year (“How Gay Will They Go?”). Whether you loved it or loathed it, this “reality porn” return to BBA’s roots certainly inspired a passionate and vocal response!

Based on the votes of BBA’s members for who they thought was the most open-minded, cooperative, and overall deserving of the bonus cash reward, Bandit won the competition in a landslide with 71% of the votes compared to 29% of the votes for Zadian, and Bandit was awarded the bonus cash prize.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to leave a comment and let us know who you thought most deserved the bonus cash prize! It was definitely a fun and entertaining experiment, and one we just might try again in the near future 😉 ….

Michael In The Movies (2016 Version)

bba_banditbendsover_blog2

Thanks for the enthusiastic feedback from so many of you in response to my recent scene with Bandit! I’m thrilled and flattered to hear that so many of you are enjoying this scene.

To those of you complaining about me appearing in a very relatively small handful of BBA’s scenes, I fully understand that these types of scenes will ALWAYS be controversial and unappealing to some. It would be ridiculous for me to expect these types of scenes to turn on every BBA viewer, and I totally get and respect that seeing me in the scenes will inevitably disappoint and even repulse many viewers.

What I find to be hypocritical and annoying, however, is when people take this criticism to the next level by acting like their personal disgust is universally shared, complaining about me sadistically “subjecting” them to these scenes, and basically demanding that I cater to their more conventional tastes with every scene that I post.

Believe it or not, there’s a large and passionate audience for these types of scenes. All you have to do is skim the blog and website comments to see that there are MANY viewers who not only don’t share your aversion and disgust, but actually ENJOY this type of unique and taboo content! Like it or not, literally thousands of people all over the planet have been busting hot “nutts” to me popping Bandit’s cherry within the past 48 hours.

Those of you criticizing my body and looks are COMPLETELY MISSING THE POINT. I’m not suffering from some kind of delusion that makes me think I’m the next Brad Pitt or God’s gift to gay porn, LOL. I don’t take any of these insults personally because I’ve never claimed to be anything other than a pale, average-looking, out-of-shape, balding, corny/nerdy white guy with a relatively small/average dick who happens to have an incurable “black boy addiction” and decided several years ago to share that addiction with my fellow addicts 😉 . 

In other words, you’re not SUPPOSED to find me attractive, and the CONTRAST between my age and looks with those of the models is kind of the whole point, LOL!

bba_banditbendsover_header4

I’ve proposed a theory several times on this blog in the past that those who most viscerally despise my “dirty old man” scenes tend to be “bottoms” or “versatile bottoms” while those who enjoy them the most tend to be “tops” or “versatile tops.” Because at the end of the day, porn is primarily about a process of IDENTIFICATION and living vicariously through the performers on the screen.

So if your main interest as a porn viewer is watching hung, attractive “tops” and picturing yourself in the place of the lucky “bottoms” being fucked by them, then nine times out of ten you’re going to dislike seeing me in the scenes. On the other hand, if you are primarily IDENTIFYING WITH and envying rather than lusting after the “top,” these types of scenes will be much more arousing and appealing for you.

For those open-minded viewers with a sincere interest in better understanding why I film these types of scenes, below is a re-post of my reflections on this topic from a few years ago, attempting to explain the reasoning behind these types of scenes and their place in a long history and popular genre going back decades in both gay and straight porn:

headerTop-FEB16-4A
I just wanted to take a moment and respond to the recent complaints from several of you about my participation in some of the scenes.

BBA has always featured a wide variety of models and themes. In an older blog entry, I compared my diverse collection of movies to an all-you-can-eat buffet.

I realize that this variety can be frustrating for viewers who only enjoy one type of scene or another. Some people love the interracial and “gay for pay” scenes but think the black-only scenes are conventional and boring. Other people enjoy the black-only scenes but think my interracial scenes are unappealing and even offensive.

At the end of the day, everyone has different tastes and I am never going to be able to please every viewer all of the time!

Noah's Ass
Anyone who’s been following my work from the very beginning knows that one of BBA’s basic themes has always been the taboo fantasy of an older white man exploring his “addiction” to younger black males….and more uniquely, his addiction to young black male ass (“white men need ass too!”).

As I clearly advertise in the site’s preview area: “If you’re turned on by the idea of an older white cameraman enjoying the ripe young bodies of his black-boy models, I’m confident you’ll enjoy my movies!”

Wanna Fuck My Black Ass?
Now I can certainly understand and respect that these types of scenes are not going to be everybody’s cup of tea. My interracial scenes always have been and always will be controversial. The recent comments left by some of you on the blog are actually pretty mild and tame compared to some of the hostile things I’ve heard over the years.

When You Masturbate To BBA…

tumblr_ny82o3BIOz1ty5puko1_500

I’ve seen this pop up on Tumblr a few times, and it made me think that it might be fun to pose the same question to BBA’s viewers.

Whether it’s by email, this blog, the BBA Tumblr, or the relatively new “comments” feature on the redesigned website, we receive A LOT of feedback to the models and scenes, and I *LOVE* that! But very few of you ever actually share the EXACT moment that inspired your ultimate release while watching the scenes, which might be helpful and at the very least entertaining to hear 😉 .

So I’m curious:

  1. What is the last BBA scene that you watched while busting a “nutt”?

  2. What was the EXACT moment in that scene that pushed you over the edge?

  3. Why? What about that scene/moment did it for you?

Too Gay or Not Too Gay, That Is The Question…

Cory Seduces Isaiah

The whole “Gay For Pay” concept is a lot like climate change. Denying its existence doesn’t make it any less real 😛 .

Now of course there are about a thousand different shades of gray between 100% Gay and 100% Straight, and I realize that part of the fun for many viewers is trying to figure out where each new model lands on that spectrum, and/or watching with surprise and excitement as each model explores and evolves and in some cases even changes positions on that spectrum over time.

If nothing else, BBA has certainly proven just how complex, contradictory, and dare I say even “corruptible” human sexuality can be.

But I do think an important distinction needs to be made between sexual ACTS vs. sexual ORIENTATION. They are not always necessarily one and the same thing! And it’s sometimes frustrating to hear gay viewers leveling the same accusations against BBA’s “gay for pay” models that they already hear enough from homophobic family and friends if and when their scenes are discovered. Namely, that they are “gay” simply because they’re on a gay website doing gay things.

Sexual orientation should be defined by one’s desires and behavior in everyday life, not sexual acts performed for entertainment purposes in exchange for large sums of money. Under the right circumstances, I could theoretically pop some Viagra, watch gay porn on my phone, and have “straight for pay” sex with a female. But that wouldn’t make me any less gay! In the same way that I know from FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCE that regardless of whether viewers want to believe it or not, some of these guys doing “gay for pay” porn are in fact STRAIGHT in their “real,” everyday lives.

Saint Fucks Apollo

Now this is where the question of authenticity comes into play, and the recent complaints from some viewers about what they perceive as “over-acting” by some of the models. I do realize that I’m partly to blame for muddying these already murky waters by introducing an element of “acting” into the mix over the past couple years.

To better understand the context for this, just browse through this blog’s archives and take a look at some of the feedback to the earliest scenes from models like Stephon and Isaiah. You’ll find countless complaints, some quite hostile and rude, about the guys being too stiff, boring, reluctant, emotionless, corpse-like, etc. Which is why it’s both frustrating and amusing to see some of these very same people now complaining about the same models being *TOO* passionate, energetic, “gay,” etc.

With the notable exceptions of anomalies like Saint and Apollo, straight guys doing “gay for pay” porn are simply NEVER going to perform like your favorite gay “porn stars.” They will always fall somewhere on the spectrum between the extremes of “too boring” vs. “too fake.”

I’ll admit, my own feelings on this subject are somewhat conflicted. In BBA’s early years, I was much more of a “purist” who prided myself on keeping things 100% authentic and unscripted, even if that meant showing the straight guys practically breaking down into tears and/or reaching for the wastebasket to throw up, LOL.

And while authentic “reality porn” is still very much what the BBA brand’s all about, I have definitely responded to pressure from viewers and compromised on this approach somewhat over time. For those of you wanting a little more clarity on my present-day approach, it usually follows this pattern:
