So, I'm back, and I've got a ton of new footage. I'll be posting promos of the new players shortly. There are some real gems in the mix, playing a whole slew of new games and risking new forfeits.
I'm not just "back" in the physical sense of being back in town. I'm also (I hope!) back to being engaged with this blog and this site. I'm going to have to (yet again) declare Comment Bankruptcy and not respond to older comments, but so help me God I'm going to respond to each and every comment and email going forward. But I've said such things before and not followed through. Actions will speak louder than words. The POV store, which has been on hiatus the last couple of weeks, will resume publication on Wednesday. And I've got some pretty awesome new POVs, too.
This week's Episode 478 features some hardcore action as Kimmy, Lilly, Mina, and Savannah compete in Strip Shockinaw, with Bob and Flynt eagerly waiting in the wings to have their way with the losers. Next week, we'll see Episode 479, promoed last week in a badly fucked-up blog post. No new promos this week but there will be more next week.
Finally, I'd like to ask about something, and would appreciate answers in the comments. I usually frown on anonymous comments (grepping this blog for "sign your posts" comes up with 212 matches) but this time, I won't mind. If you prefer to answer this question without leaving your name, please do.
One of the new players I mentioned above is Jay, whom you'll meet for the first time in Episode 481. He's a pretty awesome dude, quick-witted and full of pop culture references, sort of like a male Candle. He fit right in to the spirit of LostBets.com, bantering with the best of them. He's also black, and I was taken by surprise when someone pointed out that interracial porn is a niche market, and many people won't be interested in the episodes with Jay for that reason.
I ought to make it very clear that I don't think any less of anyone who has this preference, or consider them racists or anything stupid like that. It's a matter of what you like, and there's no accounting for taste. People reject clips all the time for having female players who are too tall, or too short, or too fat, or too skinny, or with a nose of a certain shape, or with boobs that are too small, or too big. There's all sorts of preferences, and nobody should be judged for them. But I am curious to know how prevalent this particular preference is. So I'd like to ask: would you consider buying a clip with a black man, or do you stick to other ethnicities only?
