Black Balled 7.... theory of a gang-bang.



It's just recently been confirmed, so I'm pretty excited about getting to work on Chi Chi LaRue's latest Black Balled movie! I must admit that I did have reservations about being in the movie earlier. I wasn't sure if another gang-bang scenario of a whole bunch of black men on one white guy, did a disservice to men of color. From my perspective, putting black men in that situation only amplified the 'thug' look as sexual predators, essentially making us look like a pack of wolves, ready to devour some white lamb meat. I expressed my concerns with Chi Chi.... and rather then not acknowledging them, she listened to me. She also expressed that the Black Balled movies, showcased a lot of african-american talent, that other studios tended to overlook. It's a familiar argument, that was reflected in mainstream movies and television for decades. Even though the roles of blacks in film weren't more than inner-city gangs, and bit parts in period pieces as slaves.... at least there were roles. So, I had to admit the same in the porn industry.... even though it's not the best scenario, ultimately I have to applaud Chi Chi for constantly casting men of color, and bucking the trend of only sprinkling blacks in her productions, like chocolate chips in dough. I've watched other productions, with the reverse.... All white guys fucking a black guy..... and the connotation isn't the same. So, perhaps I'm reading too much into the color of people's skin. Rather than just seeing a fun little fuck-fest. Plus, as I've become more familiar to the industry of porn.... it is all about fantasy. If we hold porn to the same high standard that we do movies and television, then we should be fighting firstly, to see all porn recognized as such by the entertainment industry at large.... instead of being pushed to the back of the store. All in all, I've decided that doing this movie can be more than what people think it is. If guys want to get off on the black gang-bang, so be it.... I'll just look at it, as a whole bunch of men having fun, punching a prostate.

  1. Hey Man... all I see is hot sexy men of color gettin a piece of ass from a hot caucasion guy. We all know that most men of color are sexually attracted to men of the caucasion race... so... No worries about that on this side of the country... I am in South Carolina... Enuff said huh? :) I am Caucasion, and I am 32 Flavors and then some...I am Better than Baskin Robins.. :)

  2. Race,

    You raise some really good points. Why is it that when we watch movies like the 'blackballed' series, we instantly think of the predatory hypermasculine (stereotyped) black male, yet when we see the 'reverse' - a white group fucking a black dude, we don't perceive them the same way?
    I think that these movies don't make it better, but they are also not making it worse.
    What we need to see, are more of the 'white fucking black' movie, as you describe, along with several of the 'asian fucking black AND white' movies. The sooner that comes out, the better.
    Let's not ignore the ample contributions that latino, and other groups could be making to these 'groups on another person' movies.

    Fact is, groups of anyone fucking one individual is a hot idea, and that's why it's such a common movie idea. It's just a shame we don't see more diversity in them, in my humble opinion.

    Love your work, as always!

  3. I think you can't get around the connotations you raise here, but it's better to acknowledge them than to pretend they aren't there, so kudos.

    That said, you might have said to Chi Chi that you'd like to be more involved in casting. While there is nothing wrong with the Black Balled series, that it's one of the highest profile mainstream porn series that feature black man AND feature them in such a racialized way, it might have helped to push Chi Chi and others to do a better job of casting men of color.

    It does look like its getting better, but that doesn't mean we don't keep pushing, so good for you for raising the issue.

  4. I think I found my thesis statement ;)

  5. jeansandtees68: I am not entirely sure that, as you put it, "most men of color are sexually attracted to men of the caucasion race." Some/many are, but not most. I would say that most who go to mainly white bars and clubs are like that, but there are a large number who go to the circuit of mainly black bars, who have little to no interest in white men.

    I too agree that I would love to see more Asian and Latino men in porn, as well as black men, and see more of a mix when it comes to 'interracial scenes'. Black/Asian is particularly hot to me, for example. BTW I also love how Race's scene in XXX was unexpectedly black on black.

    Even though I enjoyed Blackballed #5 (hell yeah I'd fuck Dean Monroe!) my problem with the idea behind the "Blackballed" films is how it makes the white man the center of the black men's interest/attention. If you have any input with Chi-Chi what I would like to see/would love to have you suggest to him is to have more of an 'orgy' atmosphere, where the guys are screwing around with each other, rather than just standing around while waiting for a shot at the white boys ass.

  6. Well I just hope this video features even more interaction between the black guys. How unrealistic is it to have 8 hot black dudes in a room and they are only interested in the white guy??? It's pretty much a white fantasy but why not just make BlackBalled an orgy fantasy?

  7. Race, you are exactly right about the impact of the "Blackballed" series, even thought the award-winning #6 did have quite a lot of black/black interaction. In fact, much of sexual representation involves "stereotypical" behavior, signifyers of cultural tropes that permit us to engage in activities that are otherwise prohibited or circumscribed. (OK, so I did spend two days in a 23-man orgy in my extreme youth; sometimes dreams come true.) Only the most brilliant artists can use wornout material in ways that give us new insights and new thrills. ChiChi is a pretty good recycler, but has yet to break any barriers and I doubt that BB7 will crack the mold. However, BB7 is a chance to see you in action and I'm glad to have that treat any way I can get it; so much for my principles. Keep us informed about the cast, please. (I noticed that Marcus Ram got to suck off every cast member in #6. Maybe the lady will let you fuck the rest of the cast while they fuck the creampuff. LOL)

  8. Race,

    Chi Chi should put up or shut-up. If she casts you for Black Balled 7, she should cast you in 2 other films (that are not black themed.) With the exception of Eddie Diaz, the reality is, the performers she hires for the Black Balled series are rarely hired again.

    Must be a South Carolina thing. Most of my black friends are attracted to other blacks. I live in Paterson,NJ (outside NYC).

  10. I have learned to be instantly skeptical of any statement which begins with "Most X are X".

    Most people are not like most people.

  11. I have about 6 CLOSE friends that are gay and NONE of them are involved with white guys. I respect others right to chose however for me, I am ONLY attracted to Black and Latino guys with a NATURAL preference for Black guys. The last guy I was seriously into was a beautyful natty dread who is the lead for a top Reggae band in the UK...I LOVE strong, confident BLK men... As regards to the poster above that said that most black guys are attracted to white guy... I dont know where he got that info from as in my circle NONE of my friends are involved in serious IR dating.I have friends and aquaintances of all colors BUT for me IYA its BLK men all the way..
    I must say I liked the BLKballed series as it gave the BLK guys a chance to perform, I really didnt focus on who was doing what to who. as My focus was primarily on my interest the black guys. I will only support movies that have black guys in them. I dont mind a IR video as long as its NOT some fetish shit, I am cool with it. BUT in my personal life I have specific taste.

  12. As a man who has a fetish for getting gangbanged, and have been several times. I have loved this series of film not because the black top on white bottom aspect, but because not many good gangbang films are made. This series in particular the last 3 (Black Balled 8, 7, 6) were very good films. Treasure Island Media does make a number of gangbang films, but most of the guys in the films are skinny, over tattooed, greasy punks… not my thing. What I look for in a gangfuck top is his hunger to fuck a hole that has been just used by others. The most men I have had getting ganged was 12… this was a nice mix of white, latin, and black men. The last man in was the one who wore me out and ended the night for me… (he was 11x6) and fucked like a demon… and yes he was a very hot black man. I have many profiles on the web looking to get ganged, and if I get approached by black men they ask me if I would or have done an all black gangbang. My answer is no I haven’t had an all black gangfuck… but if any group of men (regardless of that color their skin is) wants to fuck me into next week… sign me up. So I find many black men are looking for this scenario too. I met a straight black man a few years ago who organized parties for white women to get gangfucked by black men. He had about 60 black guys on his list to fuck, and over 2 thousand women over 5 or 6 years contacted them to be ganged. So… in my experience… I have found black men with this same fetish, and for what ever reason they enjoy it. They wouldn’t be making this kind of film if people didn’t enjoy watching. I enjoy watching. But I enjoy doing it more…
