Chances are – seeing as it is not 1999 – you probably don’t get much of your porn from message boards. Actually, did people even do that in 1999? I don’t know, I feel like not many, right? I think people were still either going to the store and purchasing their porn in DVD or VHS form, or ordering movies off of pay per view then. Has anyone ever really relied heavily on the message board for getting their porn?
Well, whether or not it has ever been a popular means of accessing porn is really beside the point. It doesn’t matter in the slightest how you get it (well, I guess unless you’re sucking dicks in exchange for free porn … then it probably matters a little), all that really matters is that you are able to get it, fuck tons of it, and that it’s free. Well, that last part is optional. I think it can actually be kind of fulfilling to pay for porn. Then when you cum, you can do it with a clean conscience. It’s a wholesome orgasm. Plus, it never hurts to support the girls who help bring you endless pleasure, right? Right.
Anyway, I could totally see how a forum could be a great place to discover porn. It may not be quite as convenient as just hopping on a free porn tube such as Porn Hub or Red Tube, but there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find shit on a message board that you would maybe never stumble upon browsing the old porn tube. I don’t know about you, but it’s really easy to get locked into a bubble of your usual interests when it comes to porn tubes.
This is even further reinforced by the fact that, oftentimes, if you have an account with one of these sites, they learn how to better recommend content to you based on what you often view or tend to like. Ironically, this can actually lead to a more closed off experience when it comes to what types of porn you are exposed to. On a forum, however, you never know what you’re gonna get. I could totally see it being a great way to discover new films, porn stars, maybe even entire genres that you never otherwise would have known existed.
So, that brings us to a site known as Porn BB. One fraction of an entire BB network of porn forums (Fetish BB, Hentai BB, and Gay BB complete the list), Porn BB is dedicated to straight, more traditional porn. If you want to explore some darker or goofier shit, you’ll probably want to check out Fetish or Hentai BB. Porn BB is more for the average, straight-laced, everyday pornoholic.
A Great Resource for Straight, Average Joe Hardcore Porn
This should be made immediately clear by the banner at the top of the page. Lying on her side on white linens, holding her head up with her hand, is an absolutely stunning naked redhead with perfect tits and electric blue eyes. It will be hard to miss her the moment you navigate your browser to pornbb.org. And it will be even harder to stop looking at her to check out the rest of the mostly text-based site once you’re there.
As far as design is concerned, Porn BB offers a pretty standard message board site design. They’ve opted for a pink and white color combination, which does nothing but makes me think of pussy. I think that’s a solid choice. Form follows function, after all, am I right? Other than that, you have a bunch of forums organized in a classic chart fashion, separated by category. Each one informs you how many topics it contains, how many posts, and the last post to be submitted to that particular forum. All very basic (but necessary) stuff for a message board site, for sure.
A Fucking Massive Forums Site
As far as sections and forums are concerned, at the top of the chart (right below the site’s Announcements and Rules section) – Porn BB wastes not a minute of your time – you’ll find the Adult Movies section. Within this section, you can choose from XXX Movies, XXX Videos (I’m assuming this would be in reference to one-off scenes, as opposed to full-length porno films), XXX Movie Mega Threads (large collections of movies, 5+), XXX High Definition Videos, Celebrity XXX Videos, All Other Amateur Videos, Vintage Videos and Movies, JAV Videos and Movies, Webcam Girls, and Virtual Reality and 3D Porn.
There are five additional sections to peruse as well (this is a fucking huge forums site, so bear with me). Next, you’ll find Models Pictures and Videos (Erotic and Porn Models Videos and Erotic and Porn Models Pictures), Adult Images (Softcore Pictures, Hardcore Pics, Picture Mega threads [again, collections of 5+], Celebrity Pictures, and All Other Amateur Pictures), Other XXX’s (XXX Stories, XXX Games, and XXX Magazines), Porn Discussion (Sex Discussion and Babe & Video Identification), and, finally, Community (Introduce, Off Topic, Forum Comments and Help Desk, Other Downloads, and Trash).
So, as you can see, Porn BB has just about everything that you could ever be looking for in the world of porn. It’s a massive one-stop shop community for all things porn. Except for it’s not a shop at all. That’s one of the best things about this site – everything on here is shared by fellow porn lovers out of the kindness of their hearts. Everything there is to be seen on Porn BB is 100% free.
Some Convenient Features and Design Perks
Another great feature of Porn BB is the preview feature. I fucking love little, subtle things like this that can make a site so much more enjoyable. When you hover your mouse over a post, an image preview of the media therein will pop up above it. I think this is fucking amazing. That is one of the biggest issues I have with forums sites in general – that they seem to always require way too much fucking clicking and back-buttoning just in hopes of what you click into will have been worth your time.
But with this previews feature (which, actually, come to think of it, I don’t I’ve ever seen utilized on a message board site before), there is no more guesswork required. The preview tells all. Don’t like what you see? Fine, don’t click into and keep scrolling on for something better. Awesome.
A Lively Community
Another great element of Porn BB is the fact that the community is very active and engaged. There are far too many forums sites out there that have been rendered digital ghost towns over the years. I can’t tell you how many sites I’ve visited on which the most recent post was from like 2013. This is, thankfully, not the case with Porn BB, though.
On nearly every forum, the most recent post was created within ten minutes of when I visited the site. In fact, the only forum that had an older most recent post was the Help Desk, and even that one was from four days prior. Now that’s the kind of engagement you want from a community-based site such as this one.
The one major downfall to this site – and it’s really more an issue with the forums site model than with Porn BB in particular – is the fact that all of the porn you enjoy from this site will have to first be downloaded. I almost always prefer streaming to downloading my porn if possible. I don’t like to have to wait, and I would rather not have these large file sizes taking up room on my hard drive when I can just as easily stream the scene and never worry about it again. But, hey, to each his own, maybe that doesn’t bother you as much – if so, you have nothing to worry about. In fact, I have talked to people in the past that like to collect their porn anyway. I don’t get it personally, but if that’s you, Porn BB will have an even better chance of becoming your go-to default online porno community.
The other complaint I have with the site is the fact that there doesn’t seem to be any way to message fellow users. I always think this is a major oversight, especially on community-based sites like this one. If you want to increase user interaction and activity, why not just add a simple messaging client to the site? It would take like 10 minutes to code one. So, that kind of sucks … but, then again, I’m not really trying to have one-on-one convos with any of you fucking weirdos anyway.
All in all, as far as forums sites are concerned, Porn BB is pretty great. You’ll find a literal fuck load of porn, plenty of lively discussions to take part in, and a place to share your porn stash with the world. Sucks that you have to download most content and that you can’t message users, but not everyone will be bothered by this. Enjoy, fucktards!
