Coming Soon: SaxGotEm Joins BBA! (Video Teaser)

Bandit’s Beach House: A Look Back Before Moving Forward

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:

  1. Last Call
  2. Protégé
  3. Royal Treatment
  4. Contact High
  5. Challenge Accepted
  6. Fresh Meet
  7. Pool Boy

Website Update: Bandit’s Beach House – Protégé

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….

Website Update: Breakin’ In A Young Thug (DIGITALLY REMASTERED)

Unfortunately, the Q&A with Bandit had to be indefinitely postponed due to circumstances beyond our control.

As a last-minute substitute, we’re bringing you another re-edited, DIGITALLY REMASTERED re-release of a BBA classic, thanks to the talents of Shax Carter.

Newer members can enjoy this classic “dirty old cameraman” scene (one of our earliest attempts at this theme) for the very first time, while older members can rediscover a long-lost fan favorite, newly restored with sharp new picture quality and bright, vivid colors.

Shyne is a 20-year-old Blatino thug who needed to make some quick cash and was willing to do whatever it took to earn it. ”Shit, I’ll do anything if you PAYIN’ me, dawg!” he explained after his GIRLFRIEND dropped him off at my apartment (he told her he was helping a guy move furniture).

This is Shyne’s first time in front of my camera, and although he is confident, even a little cocky, he’s also visibly nervous and easily embarrassed throughout much of the video in a way that I found very arousing.

Enjoy an intimate, front-row seat as I test Shyne’s boundaries and ”break him in” as a brand-new porn star. You’ll be amazed at what this cute young thug agreed to do with a horny older white man in his first-ever porn shoot!

I filmed this video about 20 minutes after meeting Shyne for the first time, so we start with a short interview to get better acquainted.

Shyne describes himself as a ”cool-type homeboy” who likes to ”chill with the dudes and kick it with the females.” Shyne is masculine and mature, yet there’s also this boyish, eager-to-please, vulnerable side to him as well.

I ask him if he’s nervous about doing his first gay porn scene.

”I ain’t worried,” he shrugs, with a cockiness that isn’t entirely convincing.

I instruct Shyne to strip off one piece of clothing at a time and then turn around slowly. As he undresses to reveal a smooth, toned body, he seems a little embarrassed at first, especially when his dick springs to life just from showing off for the camera!

”I’m turnin’ ME on, goddammit!” he exclaims with surprise.

Eager to get my hands on this hot young thug, I sit Shyne down on the futon and begin groping his naked brown body. I rub his lips between my fingers, play with his nipples, caress his chest, and stroke his dick. He even lets me kiss on his neck, cheeks, and lips while I fondle his dick and balls.

Then I flip him around to get my first handful of his tight little muscle-butt….

Hungry for a taste of some young black dick, I dive between Shyne’s legs and start giving him head. He’s a little tense at first, but he eventually relaxes and even starts pumping his dick deeper into my mouth. Watch carefully and you’ll catch him making some sexy, hilarious faces at the camera, something I didn’t notice until I sat down to edit the video!

”Can I have a taste of that ass?” I ask eagerly, anxious to get my tongue inside some fresh thug booty.

I bury my face between Shyne’s small muscled buttocks and feast on one of the sweetest assholes I’ve tasted in a long time.

Website Update: His First Straight Boy – Bonus Footage & Director’s Commentary

Like many of you across the country (and world!), we’re under a strict “stay at home” order due to the spread of COVID-19, and it may be several weeks (at the earliest) before we’re able to resume production of new content.

For more information on our upcoming schedule and a special discount for our monthly subscribers, please click here for our latest announcement.

This weekend we’re taking you behind the scenes of one of our most popular scenes of all time with this collection of NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN bloopers, outtakes, and action-packed bonus footage from porn star Knockout‘s now infamous encounter with BBA fan favorite Isaiah.

I hope you’ll be as shocked and thrilled as I was to discover so much extra hardcore action footage from this hot scene. In fact, this previously unreleased collection clocks in at just OVER AN HOUR, even longer than the original scene!

I also decided to try something different this time by recording a few of my own recollections, observations, and reflections on this unforgettable shoot that ended up making porn history and over time has become a much beloved BBA classic.

Michael Galletta Counts Down BBA’s Ten Best Scenes of 2019

2019 was a big year for me, both personally and professionally. I finally left Saint Louis and moved to New York City, starting a somewhat scary but exciting new chapter of life.

Going through such a major life transition meant less time devoted to filming than usual, but thankfully Montez and Shax Carter kept everything running smoothly while much of my time and energy was consumed by the move. I’m proud to say that 2019 still turned out to be an amazing and unforgettable year overall, leaving us with plenty of new BBA classics we’ll no doubt be abusing our dicks to for years to cum 😈.

This brings me to my list of BBA’s Ten Best Scenes of 2019, 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. Kingston: The Next Level

In a year that focused heavily on our gay and bisexual models, this was a good, old-fashioned return to BBA’s “gay for pay” roots. The sight of a straight boy as stubborn as Kingston dropping to his knees and then slobbering and choking on dick for the very first time, will fuel my jack-off sessions for years to cum.

In a twisted way, his homophobic rant that went viral only made this particular “conquest” all the more satisfying. After all, what better way to wash out a cocky straight boy’s dirty mouth than with two of the biggest dicks we could find 😈?

 

#9. Game Break

I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for any scene in which Isaiah GETS FUCKED.

There’s just something about watching the sexy straight athlete moan and groan while his phat ass gets pounded that makes me lose it every damn time.

Shax Carter’s skillful direction and distinctive cinematic style transformed a simple concept into a sensual visual feast for all of my fellow dark-chocolate addicts out there.

The chemistry between these two may not have been the greatest, but the action itself – from Shameeks devouring Isaiah’s ass like a hungry lion devouring its prey, to burying his thick nine-inch dick deep inside that breathtaking bubble-butt, has earned countless repeat viewings since its debut.

#8. Atlantic City Adventures: Episode Two

Every so often a shoot comes along where I just KNOW I’m witnessing porn history in the making. This was definitely one of those scenes!

And not just because it featured social media celebrity “Jah” in his official gay porn debut, or because it proved Scuba to be a young star in the making, but because it was quite honestly one of the most intensely and authentically erotic encounters I’ve ever had the privilege of filming.

It was clear from the start that these two needed no direction from me, so I just shut up and did my best to keep up with the action, which only got nastier and WETTER by the second. That poor hotel couch was DRENCHED by the time we were through 😉 !

 

#7. Atlantic City Adventures: Episode Four

Technically my first time back behind the camera after moving to New York City, this was the scene that reassured me I hadn’t lost my porn mojo. Of course it’s hard to go wrong with instant chemistry and performers as hot and sexy as this!

Not sure what they put in that New Jersey water lol, but Jah proved himself to be a bona fide “porn star” right out of the gate, and Dominic delivered what is arguably his most passionate and verbal topping performance thus far. I have never seen his dick get – and STAY – as hard as it was during this shoot!

Like so many other BBA straight stars before him (Isaiah, Bandit, Saint, etc.), it has been a true pleasure watching him come out of his shell and evolve as a “gay for pay” performer this year.

 

#6. Revenge Is Sweet

What would a BBA Top 10 list be without at least one “revenge” scene making the cut lol?

At least that’s what I THOUGHT this scene was supposed to be. But as the scene title pretty much gives away,  this turned out to be a victimless vengeance 😉 .

Arguably BBA’s breakout “bromance” of the year, the chemistry between Ross and Trapp was both believable and intense, needing very little coaching or direction from me. And the fact we got to film part of their encounter OUTSIDE was another fun and exciting BBA “first”!

 

#5. Personal Trainer

Not since I “took down” Isaiah have I been this proud and excited about getting a reluctant straight boy to BEND OVER and take a dick up his ass! (The dramatic trailer should have been your first clue lol).

And even though we’ve seen Dominic get more practice in subsequent scenes, nothing will ever compare to that first thrill of seeing his beautiful butt finally split open and plundered by a raw dick.

From the flirtatious weight-lifting session that kicks off the scene, to the much-anticipated consummation of their explosive chemistry from the BBA Christmas Party, Apollo and Dominic showed us why their popularity is well-earned with this epic “take-down” for the gay porn history books.

Start Spreadin’ The News….

It’s hard to believe that 2019 is already a third of the way over! Where has the time gone?!?

It’s certainly been an eventful and exciting year around here so far. From Kingston going viral and then taking things to the next level, to Dominic and Justice shocking everyone by surrendering their tight, virgin asses; Apollo and Bandit’s epic showdown, to Ross’s unexpected return; it’s been a year jam-packed with steamy showdowns and epic surprises.

And we’re just getting started 😉 ! Like I mentioned in the latest scene summary, we’re stepping up our search for fresh faces and hope to add a variety of hot new guys to the BBA roster in the weeks and months to come.

I also wanted to let everyone know about a stressful but exciting change coming up in my personal life. Within the next couple months, I will be leaving my life in Saint Louis and relocating to New York City. I’m eager and hopeful to discover what this next chapter will bring, but of course it would also be nice if I could just snap my fingers and already be settled into my new life in the Big Apple. Tons still to do before that can happen.

This partly explains why we’ve been featuring so many scenes directed by Shax Carter lately, and will continue doing so throughout the next couple months until I’m able to resume my normal production schedule. Montez and Shax have both been incredibly supportive and helpful in picking up the slack and keeping everything running smoothly while I deal with these unavoidable challenges and distractions in my personal life.

Fans of Shax’s beautiful cinematography and more polished, professional style will be in for a real treat this Spring. But those who miss my own scenes need not worry, I plan to get back behind (and maybe even in front of) the camera again just as soon as I can 😉 !

With this in mind, below is our TENTATIVE May 2019 schedule:

Update #1: May 16th or 17th
Update #2: May 23rd or 24th
Update #3: May 30th or 31st

We’ve got some hot things in the works for our viewers. For the latest previews, updates, announcements, etc., please follow us on Twitter @bbaddictionz and @bba_michael. ​Thanks! (more…)

Michael Galletta Counts Down BBA’s Ten Best Scenes of 2018

Despite getting off to an admittedly rocky start during its first couple months, 2018 still turned out to be an incredible year here at BBA. And based on my excruciating struggle just to narrow down this list to ten scenes, I think it could very well be our BEST year so far!

Even as we tried to mix things up and experiment with new creative directions (more content from director Shax Carter, more focus on “special guests” than usual, etc.), we still tried to deliver the kind of good, old-fashioned, unscripted amateur scenes that are such a familiar and beloved part of the BBA brand – including some truly unforgettable BBA classics that we’ll all be watching and talking about for years to come.

This brings me to my list of BBA’s Ten Best Scenes of 2018, 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. Meeting Mikey

Some of you will no doubt be surprised to see a SOLO scene make my list of favorite scenes for the very first time since I started posting these lists.

But thanks to Shax Carter’s skilled direction and beautiful cinematography elevating Mikey Piper‘s natural charisma and striking good looks, this solo packed in more breathless eroticism and nutt-draining visual stimulation than most action scenes!

From the steamy shower strip-tease to the most epic cum-shot in BBA history, this scene was a master class in solo gay erotica at its spellbinding best.

#9. Taming Trapp

I’m almost embarrassed to think of just how many “nutts” I’ve already bust to this scene, and it deserves a spot on this list for that reason alone.

Oddly enough, one of the moments I find myself watching over and over again is Trapp sticking his reluctant face in both of his co-stars’ butts and eating male ass for the very first time.

But there’s also something about seeing the cocky straight thug down on his knees, slobbering on TWO dicks at the same time, or grunting as his infamous “phat ass” gets stuffed with raw dick at both ends, that pushes me over the edge EVERY single time!

#8. Bandit’s Revenge #2

This was a breakout year for BBA’s #1 star, and watching Bandit slowly but surely come out of his shell and evolve into a more uninhibited and energetic performer has been one of the most exciting things I’ve witnessed all year.

There’s no better example of this than his “bromance” with Manny Killa, who had a breakout year of his own and repeatedly inspired career-best performances from his many co-stars, including Bandit’s surprisingly sensual performance in this scene.

What started out as an aggressive “revenge” scene took some unexpected twists and turns to become one of our most tender and passionate pairings of the year.

#7. A King Conquered

Didn’t think anything (or anyone) could challenge Bandit’s “bromance” with Manny until this scene with King Ant came along! Nothing I’d witnessed in their off-camera interactions could have prepared me for the shockingly explosive chemistry on display in this scene.

These two fucked like they’ve been lovers for YEARS, and the world of black gay porn is all the better for it. King Ant surrendered to that monster dick like a pro, allowing Bandit to deliver what was arguably his BEST and most passionate performance of the year!

#6. Detroit After Dark: Manny In The Middle

Probably the most fun I had behind the camera all year, and quite possibly the hottest threesome I’ve ever filmed.

For someone claiming to prefer the “top” role, Manny Killa sure set the bar high with a jaw-dropping performance that would put most power bottoms to shame. And once again he brought out a side of Bandit rarely seen with his other co-stars.

Of course the instant attraction between Manny Killa and Stylez also contributed to this scene’s palpable energy and sizzling-hot sex.

You’ll never look at a game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” quite the same way again 😉 !

#5. Dominic: The Next Level

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 scene had me harder than I think I’ve ever been during a shoot! And let’s just say editing without “interruptions” proved to be quite a challenge 😉 .

Much like Saint‘s training session with Apollo several years earlier, this turned out to be one of the steamiest sessions between “straight” guys that I filmed all year.

Saint once again shined in the role of “gay for pay” mentor, unleashing a freaky side of Dominic we’d only seen glimpses of in his earlier scenes, and proving once again that you don’t always need hardcore action for a scene to earn multiple “nutts”!

Website Update: Detroit After Dark – Manny In The Middle

BBA recently returned for its second annual appearance at Hotter Than July Detroit Pride.

Montez and I were joined by Manny Killa, Stylez, Jay C, Blake Bishop, and Detroit native Bandit for another unforgettable weekend full of laughter, fun, and adventure with an exciting new combination of guys.

By day, the guys were able to meet and mingle with their amazing fans, take pics with them, sign BBA t-shirts and posters, etc.

But Detroit after dark is when things REALLY started to get interesting 😉 . And of course we had the camera with us so you wouldn’t miss out on a thing!
