When do you get a double, but end up well past second base?

The title is a riddle. Good luck with it. If you can't figure it out, check out Episode 580, published today. But first, I want to talk about Episode P156, which was the subject of a blog post earlier this week. It was published on Wednesday, and the reviews are in:

"A masterpiece!" --Bud
"Wonderful!" --m
"Red Diamante has truly outdone himself!" --Red Diamante

So run, don't walk, to the LostBets POV store and buy a copy of Episode P156. You'll be glad you did.

Now, about 580. Avi is back, after making her first appearance just a few weeks ago. There's a story behind why she's back so soon which I'll tell one day, but for now, it had something to do with everybody's favorite cock-with-a-wisecracking-person-attached, Dante. Also appearing is Dante's friend Thomas, making his first appearance on camera and it shows. And also making their first appearances on video, tall and voluptuous Lydia and  petite but also voluptuous Cass.

Ordinarily, I start newbies off with relatively tame forfeits to ease them in, but this was an exception. See, these three girls had agreed to risk something rather extreme, but some were more reluctant about it than others and I wanted to do it before they changed their mind. People who like their forfeits hardcore, especially hardcore involving butts, will appreciate this.

By the way, if you hear a door opening and closing during the forfeit, it's because my friend Edie came by for a visit and I went to let her in. She'd never seen a porn shoot before and was curious to see what it was like. I think she was impressed, although regrettably it didn't help me get laid. Life is full of these little disappointments, but at least I got to whisper, "We have to be very quiet going in, because I have people DPing in there," so I can cross that one of the bucket list.

It was the best of POVs, it was the worst of POVs

Fans of the POVs have been disappointed lately, since there hasn't been a new one in quite awhile. Well, this Wednesday I'm finally publishing new one, and I think you're gonna like it. In my opinion, it's the worst POV I've ever done, yup. But it's also the best. By a lot, I think.

It's the worst in terms of technical quality. A number of the cameras (including the one your opponent was looking directly at) just flat-out didn't work, and the ones that remained weren't our best cameras. But IMO in terms of content, it's the best (or at least one of the best) POVs to date. If you like ENF, you'll love this one. If you like forced masturbation, you'll love this one. If you like JOI, you'll love this one.

Unlike the regular episodes, which are mostly candid and real, the POVs can't be real in the same way. Usually, I have the girls ad-lib their games against their nonexistent opponents. Some of the girls are really good at this, some aren't, but  there are things you just can't get without a real script. I haven't done a fully-scripted production since Episode 017. (That remains one of my best-selling episodes, even though it makes me embarrassed to watch it today,) Well, I wrote a script for this one, and it's pretty good, if I do say so myself.

In the scenario, you're studying for your Anatomy and Physiology final, when Cyndi comes in. She's studying for the same exam and is having trouble with the unit on the male reproductive system, and she's wondering if you'll give her a little show-n-tell to help her understand it better. You agree, as long as she'll do the same so you can get a better understanding of female anatomy, but she reacts with shock and horror. It's different for girls to expose themselves to guys, she protests, and it'd be way too embarrassing for her to let you closely examining her body. One thing leads to another, and you end up playing a game of strip poker, with the naked loser having to exhibit their body to help the winner. At first, just an anatomy lesson is at stake, but after some mutual trash-talk the stakes are raised so the loser also has to demonstrate sexual arousal, and raised again so the loser has to show what their gender's sexual climax looks like. And the game goes on.

Two endings available. Nearly 303 minutes long Published in both regular and 180° panoramic versions. Episode P156, coming on Wednesday, 16 August 2017.

But today, it's Episode 579, with the foursome of Alisha, Helena, Selena, and Starli. This one's for the WAM fans, and also for those who like sprinkles. Enjoy.

On realitt

See Scarlett and Kasady take on each other today in Episode 571. Kevin gets to fuck the loser, lucky guy. If you like to see cute girls getting it where it counts, this one's for you.

I've made a post on this topic before but it was years ago. There are new folks here, and I doubt many of them have read the last 10 years of blog posts. Besides, part of this is relevant to today's update.

I always try to keep the games and forfeits as real as possible. I interfere in both as little as I can. I don't even like to call cut while filming, and I generally don't unless one of the players asks for it. This hardly ever happens and the large majority of our episodes are filmed in a single take.  I give the players very little direction beyond, "Have fun. Be yourself. The fans want to see your real personality, so let it show through the camera. Get into the games and try your best to win. Good luck."

I understand that in conventional porn, sex involves multiple takes from multiple angles, so the cameras can get everything and the director can position the actors just-so and get exactly the shot he wants. I never do this. All of our sex scenes are genuine, without guidance from the crew. (Admittedly, we do sometimes cut if a dude is having trouble performing and needs a little help.)

For many producers, the appearance of reality seems more important than actual reality itself. And if it's done well, I guess, the audience will never know. But I'd know, and fakeness isn't what I want to do. In a couple of my very early shoots featuring Pettles and Elora in one and Tristan and Stephanie in the other, I tried to make up a scenario to explain why the girls were playing stripping games, but I soon abandoned that and went with the truth: they're playing stripping games 'cause they're here at LostBets.com, and that's just what we do here.

Our sex scenes are definitely not as polished as the professional ones, and the participants often have a frustrating tendency to get in the way of the camera and keep us from getting a good shot. But that's the price to be paid for keeping it real. And I pay it happily.

And sometimes, if the fuckers take my advice and really do get into it, cool stuff happens. For example, in today's episode (see? I told you we'd get there) there isn't much of a role in the forfeit for the winner. She's just supposed to sit back and relax as Kevin has his way with the loser. But watching the show got her hot and bothered. She decided that she wanted her tits sucked, so she took them out and stuck them in the loser's mouth while Kevin was taking her from behind. We didn't tell her to do that, and we didn't even suggest it. She wasn't getting paid to do it, but she wanted a mouth on her nipples so she made the loser do it. These are the moments I love: when the players are really in the moment and take things to another level on their own.

Friday, June 9, 2017


So I did another couple of shoots this weekend in an effort to get more POVs. Unfortunately it didn't go very well. In fact, of about 100 shoots I've done over the years, this is the only one I'd classify as "bad". We had a number of no-shows and cancellations, and the first girl to actually turn up was, by a longshot, the worst player I've ever seen. And by "worst player", I don't mean she was bad at the games, I just mean she was a god-awful person. I don't usually like to bad-mouth my players, but in this case, I'll make an exception. Ugh. Screw you, Cocoa. I doubt I'll ever publish the crappy POVs she made for us, but if you're a fan of unintelligent SSBBWs with freakishly painted-on eyebrows, let me know.

It wasn't all a loss, though. Awhile ago, I heard from a local fan, Cal, who asked if he and his lady Marcy could play. I decided to give them a shot, and they showed up with their friend Gemma in tow. If you like real people, really real people, real amateurs who really have never appeared nude on camera for anyone, you'll like this trio.

Episode 570 today, with Tobi and Stefanie. Those of you who like to see a hapless loser's butthole violated should be pleased.

Hey, it's another promo

Again, not much to say here, but here's a promo for today's Episode 568, featuring Gracie and Roxy.


Friday, May 19, 2017

Hey, look, it's a preview!

I've said before that we've fallen way behind due to some issues, and one consequence has been the lack of previews lately. Well, we've got one, and here it is: Episode 567, with the second appearance of Latina Carmen and her best friend Dylan.


The game is Pirate Penguins, but there's a twist. The loser has to run naked around the house three times, in broad daylight, but there's a twist there, too. It's a highly-spirited game between two highly-competitive girls.

Way, way behind on just about everything owing to our recent issues, but seriously, things are looking up. For now, if you want to contact me to ask me or tell me anything, your best bet is to email me at red@lostbets.com. I'm at least a little less behind in answering those.

Get your kicks on 566

Episode 566 publishes today, meaning we're only 100 episodes away from Episode 666. I'll have to do something special for that one. Maybe have the loser sacrificed on an altar to Ba'al or something like that. While we wait for that one, Episode 566 brings back Roxy and Gracie for higher stakes than last time. I cab't help it, I've got a thing for Roxy. There's just something about smart girls I can't resist. (Oh, Isobel, how I pine for you.)

I need to extend apologies to the POV fans. Like I said awhile ago, the supply of available POVs is running very low. I was supposed to have a shoot scheduled so I could make more, but it fell through. I'm working on one now for later in May. Until then, I'm sorry to say that POV updates will be sporadic. Hopefully we can get back to regular updates soon.

Friday, May 5, 2017


Today's update, Episode 565, is a tale of two girls. These two girls, Nettle and Endza, made the mistake of bragging to me about how much they'd dominate at Shockinaw, and how little the electric shocks the game delivers for failure would hurt them. So I decided they should maybe play something a little more challenging. Man, do I love girls who can't refuse a dare.

Still way behind in postproduction so no new previews yet, but again, light is visible at the end of the tunnel.

Party of Five

Here;s something we haven't had in awhile: a double-update weekend. For this one, both episodes feature the same fun-loving group of five, one softcore and one hardcore. The ethnically- and vertically-diverse group of Helena, Desiree, Yesenia, Cierra, and Jay square off. In Episode 563, it's a free-for-all game of Strip Freeze with three naked losers who have to bend over and take barehanded spankings from the winners. And while these five are friends, they're all gleeful at the thought of getting to spank any of the others, and none can be expected to pull their punches.

The next day, the stakes are raised in Episode 564. Jay sits out the game, instead being the game's beneficiary. The two losers of the game of Strip Rock-Paper-Scissors (king of the hill style) become Jay's playthings, with assistance from the winners. He brings his unique and creative style to the forfeit, and while the winners delight in being in charge, nobody has a bad time.

I don't have promos or even title pictures for future episodes because the queue of ready-to-publish episodes has run dry and we're back to finalizing episodes right before publication. But I do have the contents of the next few episodes laid out, so here they are, if you're curious.

Episode 565 stars Endza and Nettle playing a very unusual game of Shockinaw. Let's just say the girls don't hold the handles in their hands. Leilani was there too, but as soon as she heard what would be going on she opted out immediately. Loser finds herself getting pounded by the winner's strap-on,.

Episode 565 brings back Gracie and Roxy for their second outing. Last time, the loser got fully exposed. This time we kick it up a notch as the loser has to spread open and show us how she masturbates. Good times.

The reason(s) why the edited queue has run dry and I've been AWOL again is that Johnny and I have both been faced with extremely important tasks, and work has just had to take a back seat. The good news is that there just might be some light at the end of the tunnel. I figure you guys are mostly here for the pr0n rather than my scintillating prose, anyway.

From me to thee: free 3D POV

So I've disappeared for awhile. Right after promising not to do that anymore, too. But my absence hasn't been entirely unproductive: Hippo and I designed and 3D printed a rig for shooting panoramic 3D video. We've never done anything like this before, and it's still very much experimental, but I'm fairly happy with the results of our first try. I'm giving away the first POV shot with the new equipment for free, and I'd appreciate your feedback. It features new girl Avi as your boss, promising you a promotion if you beat her at a game of Strip High Card. The file is formatted for 180 degrees, side-by-side. I view the clips on an Oculus Rift, but it should work in anything that can display 3D and has a movie player. I'm pretty sure that even a Google Cardboard would work. You can download it from this link (contains nudity, duh). It's also on YouPorn.

Today's Episode 560 features the return of amateurs Cora, AngieJo, and Jennie. The loser gets tied up in some pretty restrictive bondage and vibrated by the winners. Enjoy.

There haven't been many promos lately, and this is still true of next week's episode. Last year in December, I published Episode 545 to celebrate Hanukkah. Well, there are goyish holidays that should be celebrated too, and one of them is coming up next Sunday. Episode 561 will honor Easter, and there is a bunny involved.

Don't forget to tell me what you think of the 3D POV. By the way, our 3D rig also has a place to mount a GoPro, so the videos we shoot with it will have 2D versions as well and not be 3D exclusive. We still are working on finalizing the file naming convention for the 3D POVs. Originally we were going to take the P from POV and add 3D followed by an episode number. Since this first one was free and not really part of the POV stream, we gave it episode number 0, before realizing that P3D0 might not be the best thing to include. Working on it.

Meet new girl Stefanie today in Episode 557. She was referred by to us by her friend Tobi, who takes her on in the first game of turned out to be a five-game shoot. Now, I wasn't planning for Tobi to be in this shoot. I love her, but I also like to shoot a lot of variety, and we've seen an awful lot of her lately. Stefanie's opponent was supposed to be another newbie, but she flaked out on us. I asked Tobi to step in as an emergency replacement, and thank goodness she did, because this shoot turned out fantastically. I can't wait to bring you the rest of it.

Stefanie, by the way, isn't a newbie just to LostBets.com, she's a newbie to being naked on camera for all to see. She was pretty nervous about her first time, too, so there's that. Enjoy!

Wednesday, March 8, 2017


So, this:


You said it, Paul. You said it.

Ten years ago, on March 8, 2007, was my first shoot. I've got stories to tell about that, but first, let me tell you about today's update, Episode,556. Most of the footage from that first shoot was never published, because I was dissatisfied with the quality. As soon as I saw the footage, I immediately went out and bought a set of lights and a tripod. Also, I talked a lot during the games, commenting, and I was kind of embarrassed to hear my own voice. I thought I sounded pretty dorky, which of course I am but that doesn't mean I like hearing it.

But a lot of people over the years have asked to see more of Ashton and Mia, those two very first players. And after looking at (and listening to) the footage again, it's not that bad, even with my dorky commentary. And it seemed very appropriate to finally publish it on its tenth anniversary.

It's still ten years late, though. So by way of apology, and as a thank you to LostBets.com's most loyal fans: if you purchased a clip during 2008, you get a free copy of Episode 556. If you purchased a clip in 2007, you get a free copy of Episode 556 and any other episode of your choice. Just email a copy of your receipt to red@lostbets.com. and, if you're one of the really old-timers from 2007, which bonus clip you'd like. I sure hope you're using a service like Gmail that'll save your email forever.

Okay, now that that's out of the way, let's get all mushy and shit.

Ten years. Ten motherfucking years. I've been doing LostBets.com longer than I've lived at any one address, longer than I've worked for any one employer, longer than I've been with any one girl, longer than I've done pretty much anything other than breathing and metabolizing. I've grown old doing this. (I was in my mid-thirties when I started, so do the math.) I never would have believed it. I still don't believe it. It still feels fantastic, unreal. Dreamlike, even. At this point, I've done over 120 shoots featuring over 300 players, losing their clothes playing over 120 different games. Those shoots have generated about 23TiB of data and resulted in over 560 published episodes with a runtime of over 8 days and 18 hours. And none of those numbers include B-Sides or POVs. Un-fucking-believable.

During the last decade, I've tried many times to express how thankful I am to all of you, but this is a special occasion so I'm going to try it again. To all of you. To everyone who's ever bought a clip or subscribed to the membership site. To everyone who reads this blog and to everyone who posts on it. To the many, many people who've contributed great ideas for games, forfeits, and players. To all of you: you have no idea how deeply grateful I am. How lucky I feel to be able to do what I do, and how much I appreciate you who make it possible. 

It's a rare privilege to be able to make creative content that a lot of people like. It's even rarer to be able to make content that a lot of people are willing to pay for. You find my content worth spending your hard-earned money on, even in the sea of free pornography out there. That's incredibly humbling, and I'm not a humble man by nature. Every clip purchased and every subscription bought is a big compliment, and I've gotten thousands of compliments from all over the world. 

I haven't always been as diligent as I ought to be, especially when it comes to blog comments and emails, especially in the last couple of years. That stops now.  I've also been slacking on publishing POVs. That stops today too with the publication of P147 as Leilani risks her clothes with all her coworkers watching. 

An finally, here's a little bit of history: the ad I placed on Craigslist that attracted Ashton and Mia.

Play strip poker, get paid!

compensation: Negotiable
We are looking for ladies to play strip poker (and other stripping games) in front of the camera. Women only, please, and of course you must be 18+. Absolutely no sex, just nudity.

If interested, please respond with current photographs, and we will send you information on our productions.

Friday, March 3, 2017

Information, please

Today in Episode 555 (which coincidentally happens to be the first three digits of my phone number) we see Ana Molly and April playing to protect their pussies from possible penetration by a prosthetic phallus. (I didn't plan that when I started writing that sentence. It just turned out that way.)

Next week's Episode 556 will be published early, on Wednesday March 8. Some of you may know why. No preview, but it features two players we haven't seen in a very, very long time. Some of you may know who.

Finally, I've gotten a lot of inquiries about the POVs, and why they've disappeared. The reason I stopped publishing them is that the queue was running very low. Unlike the regular episodes, which currently have about 60 episodes just waiting to be edited and published, I was down to the low single digits for the POVs. I could have kept publishing until I ran out and was forced to stop publishing them, then shot a few more and started publishing again, only to run out again and have to stop again... bleah. Instead I decided to put the POVs on hiatus for awhile while I built up the queue some more. I did a poor job (i.e. no job at all) of communicating this, and also I underestimated the popularity of the POVs and so the number of inquiries I would get. And also, I forgot that I'd promiosed people Episode P117, featuring Leilani who has quite a few fans.

Thank you, by the way, to everyone who asked about the missing POVs. I'm glad you like them so much that you miss them when they're not there. Hopefully they've been getting better and will continue to do so.

The queue is back up to 7 POV episodes, which is still a pretty tight but I can work with it. So to make a long story short (much too late), Episode P117 will be published on Wednesday the 8th, along with Episode 556, and that will hopefully restart weekly publication. I'll try to keep up. Usually we plar 5-6 games per shoot and then maybe 1-2 POVs per player, but that just isn't going to do if I'm going to keep publishing POVs as frequentlyas I do regular episodes. I'll have to come up with some other sort of shooting schedule.

And speaking of the POVs getting better, here's something that's well into the future and may not happen at all and I probably shouldn't say anything about, but I'm excited about it so I'm going to tell you anyway. But please keep in mind the aforementioned disclaimer.

You guys remember Lily Cameron? Thin little twig of a girl, lets her body hair grow wild? Has appeared in 35 episodes, starting with April 2008's Episode 029? She's on the other side of the camera now, working for Yanks.com, making content that almost exclusively features girls masturbating.  I plan to split any revenue I get from that affiliate link with Lily, since in my opinion Yanks ludicrously underpaying her for all the work she does for them. Bit again, that's just my opinion. Lily is so waifish and seems so fragile, it's very easy to feel protective of her.

Anyway, they recently started a branch called Yanks VR, whose content is, again, produced by Lily, and for which, again, she is IMO criminally underpaid, but that's not the point. The site features 180- and 360-degree panoramic stereoscopic videos of girls masturbating, and frankly, it looks fucking awesome. It looks like you're there, watching the girl rub one out, watching her cum. The first thing I thought when I saw it was, "this would be incredible for our POVs." So again, may never happen, yadda yadda yadda, but Lost Bets POV might be going VR. We shall see. You may not think you have the VR hardware, but the video plays jus fine on a Google Cardboard. Anyone can make one of those, or buy one cheap. I really hope this works out.

See y'all on Wednesday.

The permanent red diamond

There are four Lost Betsy tattoos that I know of. I have one Johnny has one, Xena has one, and now Tobi has one. The biggest one of them all, actually. She made a high-stakes bet and didn't win. There's probably a lesson in there somewhere. Anyway, you can see the ink getting embedded indelibly in her skin today in Episode 554.

Next week will see Ana Molly and April return for a game of Pirate Penguins. Loser takes the winner's strap-on. No video preview for that one, sadly. Here's the image, at least.

I've been unresponsive to blog comments lately. If you need to reach me, my email address is red@lostbets.com. And I'll be back on top of blog comments starting with Episode 556, which will be a Very Special Episode commemorating a very significant anniversary. Stay tuned.

Friday, February 17, 2017

You're (Earth and) Fired!

Another co-ed game of Earth and Fire in today's Episode 553. Yesenia returns, and Kevin is the lucky dude in the threesome. Thee introduce Audrey, whose first experience at LostBets.com involved being forcibly stripped and having two strangers try to force her to cum. Way to jump in with both feet, am I right?

No video preview for next week, since there's not much point. And the very title itself is a spoiler. This isn't a traditional LostBets.com game, but the result of a wager between me and Tobi. And this is a bet with permanent consequences.

This is why you should never bet on your favorite team, or at least not make a bet with significant stakes. Your fandom can cloud your judgment and make you more confident of a victory than you ought to be. As a result of losing this bet, Tobi will be a walking advertisement for LostBets.com for the rest of her life. She had to get our mascot Lost Betsy tattooed on her body. And not on an obscure hidden part of her body, either, but right on her upper thigh, just a couple of inches left of her pussy. It's a big one, too. She'll never again wear a bikini without having people ask her about the red diamond with the stripping silhouette she's displaying so prominently.

Also, it was her birthday. No fooling. Quite a present, eh? Never mind not betting on your favorite sports teams, women should really learn to stop betting against me. I nearly always win.

Bright and Sunny

I like Episode 552, because I like making girls do stuff in public. Sassy, Dylan, and Tyler play a game, and the loser has to masturbate in a quite public pool. At least, that was the plan. But sometimes things don't always go according to plan. Sometimes they go better. And they did.

Next week, it's a coed game of Earth and Fire in Episode 553.

This is one for the hardcore fans. Lucky Kevin gets to play, and Yesenia too. (Several people have been asking to see more of her, so here you go. Joining them is the beautiful Audrey, who I'm very happy to introduce. The three of them will try to make each other cum, and the loser will be responsible for satisfying the winners. Everybody cums, but two of them do it on their terms while the third is forced to cum involuntarily as she struggles to keep control of herself.

But soft

Five softcore girls return today in Episode 550. Kimber, Jasmine, Jennifer, Paige, and Kimber are back, and one of them is going to be humiliated at the hands of the others.

Speaking of softcore, I did another shoot last Tuesday. It was sort of a comedy of errors, with some girls backing out at the last moment and other girls backing out after the last moment, but as is usually the case with these things, everything worked out fine. New girl Stefanie (not to be confused with Stephanie or Steffanie) was great, especially considering that it was her first time ever getting naked on camera. She was nervous and shy and wouldn't risk overly-sexual forfeits, at least not for now. That's okay, because we had some freakin' great softcore forfeits. Want to see a picture of Stefanie? Here you go:

I mentioned awhile ago that I got a 3D printer, which is awesome. (There have already been 3D printed parts in some of our episodes, like the dreidel from Episode 545.) Well, I got a 3D scanner as well, sort of. It's actually just a Kinect, but it does a damned good job. The loser of this particular game had to let her nude body be scanned in three different poses. (Oh, um... spoiler.) The 3D models will be made available for anyone on the Internet to download for free and enjoy Stefanie's curves.

Speaking of Dreidel, I liked the idea of special holiday episodes so much, I did another one. Since the last one was for a Jewish holiday, I figured I should throw in ones for the gentiles as well, so look for that episode come Easter.

Sharp-eyed viewers will have noticed that I've been gone a lot lately, and also that there have been no POVs for the last few weeks. The reason for the latter is sinple: I ran out. We've published almost all the POVs we've got and I'm slowing the publication schedule until we can shoot more. As for the former, I've been pretty sick lately, which has kept me away. Hopefully I'm on the mend. Also, I've been distracted by girl troubles. If you're not having girl problems, I feel envious, son. I got 99 problems, and bitches are about six of them.

Hail to the Tits

Long-timers will remember Bush's Last Day, when we sent President George W. Bush off with a girl losing her bush. (The loser was a girl who really, really wanted to keep her bush but despite a completely fair game lost it anyway.) It's been eight years and it's time for another Presidential sendoff as Barack Obama leaves office, and a girl will have to let her puppies swing free for an entire month. It's Bare-Rack's Last Day, after all.

I'm not sure what I'll do next time. I was thinking something to do with Rod-ham, but the results of the election surprised us all, or at least many of us. A game with trump cards, maybe?

Next week will see the return of Becky, Kimber, Jasmine, Jennifer, and Paige in Episode 550.

It's a simple game of Strip Rock-Paper-Scissors with another softcore forfeit,  which is all they were willing to risk. The winners gleefully attack the loser's nude body with markers, and turn her into a living work of art.


Finally, I've said before that this blog is no place for politics, but it's an important day and I've got something I want to say. I wish former President Obama well and I hope he uses the considerable influence of an ex-President to accomplish great things. And I wish President Trump luck as he enters his new job and I hope his time in office is marked by peace and prosperity for the United States and for the whole world. And I hope this is something we can all agree on no matter who we voted for. We all want the same thing: a free, prosperous, and harmonious world, no matter how viciously we may disagree on how to achieve it.
