The Badpuppy gay pornography website is based in Cocoa, Florida and was founded on May 17, 1995. Badpuppy was the first gay adult membership site and continues to be ranked as a leading gay mega site. The Badpuppy website features exclusively produced movies and image galleries of amateur men as well as professional gay porn stars. Models for the site are filmed by producers from around the globe, which creates a variety of styles, model types and locations. The Badpuppy brand also hosts thirty additional websites owned and managed by producers and webmasters. These independent websites operate as a part of the "Badpuppy Network".
BadPuppy started as a simple bulletin board system. At the time, BadPuppy founders Bill Pinyon and Max Zechinato were working at NASA as network specialists, but dreamed of setting up their own company. By 1996, the company had 23 employees and 30 individual contributors.
The mission of Badpuppy is to "Create a user-friendly, one ticket pass to the world of gay adult entertainment while consistently providing the highest quality product at the most economically affordable price."
On February 7, 2011, Badpuppy received the CyberSocket Web Awards “Surfers Choice” for the Best Gay Megasite. That year's other nominations included Channel 1 Releasing, Colt Studio Group, Hot House Entertainment, Naked Sword, Raging Stallion Studios and others. Badpuppy has received the Surfers Choice award 6 of the last 7 years.
Since Badpuppy’s inception, adult industry print and online publications such as AVN (magazine), XBIZ and Adult Web Life have covered Badpuppy from their early days with "hundreds" of feature articles and press releases about the company.
The website has increased its consumer base through online campaigns as well as Gay adult print publications over the years such as: Allboy Magazine, Freshmen, Men, Unzipped, JustUsBoys, Playgirl Magazine, Mandate, Dude Magazine and others.
