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.

Hotter Than July Detroit Pride & Revised Summer Schedule Update

I just wanted to remind everyone to come out and join me/Michael Galletta, Montez, and some of your favorite BBA models at this upcoming weekend’s Hotter Than July Detroit Pride (July 27-30)!

If you live in the Detroit area or even if you don’t, it’s not too late to book a quick flight or plan a special road trip with friends for this special opportunity to meet and mingle with Rico Pruitt, Blake Bishop, Stylez, and Shazeer up close and in person! One or two additional BBA models might even make a surprise appearance as well.

I know this unusual summer schedule has been extremely frustrating for BBA’s fans, and trust me, I hate it every bit as much as you do. But I need you to bear with me for just a little bit longer. In trying to figure out the best and fastest way to restore some normalcy to the schedule, and after realizing that BBA’s monthly subscribers have still received three new updates in June and four new updates in July, I’ve decided to resume the regular weekly schedule starting NEXT weekend instead of this weekend as originally planned, allowing me to focus my time and energy on this upcoming trip and hopefully some hot filming while we are there as well.

To make up for the inconvenience and (hopefully short-lived) disappointment, I’ve asked CCBill to extend all active/current BBA memberships by two weeks. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at michael@blackboyaddictionz.com if you have any questions or concerns about this.

The good news is that I can FINALLY see the light at the end of the tunnel and should hopefully be able to get back to the regular weekly schedule starting next week. And if all goes well, I should also have some sizzling-hot surprises in store for the rest of BBA’s Summer Season!

In the meantime, please help us spread the word and come out and join us for a weekend full of fun events at Hotter Than July Detroit Pride. Click here for a full schedule of events and stay tuned to our new BBA Twitter for the latest info and updates on specific events and where we will be throughout the weekend.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

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.

Website Update: Scotty – The Next Level

Scotty - The Next Level 1
This weekend we’re returning to BBA’s roots with this lengthy, unscripted “straight boy seduction” similar to those I used to film back in the good ol’ days of the Blue BBA Futon.

It turns out that Shaun ended up getting locked up AGAIN just a few days after filming that hilariously awkward and unforgettably entertaining encounter with his best friend Scotty, and this time it’s looking like he might be away for awhile.

Since I’ve been pretty generous with keeping money on Shaun’s “books” while he’s in jail, and even covered the costs for a new and better attorney, I was able to work out an arrangement with Scotty where he could start to pay off some of Shaun’s debt and dig himself out of his own dire financial situation at the same time by returning for a special training session with me….


As part of the negotiations that took place during this shoot, I promised not to give too much way in the previews or reveal EXACTLY what he ended up doing by the end of this scene. So I won’t spoil any of this scene’s hot surprises other than to say that if you’re able to make it to the end of this scene without busting at least two or three “nutts,” then you’re a far stronger person than I was while editing the footage 😉 !

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.
