The Scaffies community and its website offers you more “stuff” and things to do than any other social media site on the Internet does.
You find the largest accumulation of guys into M/M ballbusting, real-time group- and one-on-one chat, messaging, audio- and video calls, detailed member directories by profiles and forum activities, many search options, over 225 groups dedicated to every place on the planet, as well as forums and groups for any kind of activity around ballbusting (and some other, related topics).
As of April 2021, there are over 350,000 topic posts across all those forums, covering pictures, videos, stories, and contact personals — and over 450,000 activites recorded by members. We have been around since late 2013, and – as you can tell – we have been busy! You can earn a multitude of badges, participate in challenges, engage in text-, audio-, or video chats, web camming (if that is your thing), online role play, and of course be creative yourself with new content you provide to the community.
With everything you do in the community, you earn ScaffCoins (our own crypto currency), and can spend those on pieces of the rich art collection by Madeira Desouza (he is the front-runner adapting NFTs and offering his art for ScaffCoins). You can also exchange coins with other members; more options will follow.
There are many options to get in contact with other members, from hitting someone up in chat, sending messages, or making compliments, commenting on posts and replies with several options of voting and thanking each member, participatingi n member- and site polls (you can also create your own!), browse a plethora of member and group galleries, read hooligan advice, consult the Editor’s Journal for detailed teaching lessons on CBT and many other topics, even learn to make “cock-tails” for parties.
There are ballbusting book references, our very own comic series, exclusive other art, such as the famous SparkieShock “Parilla” games (he has his own group on here for that), confess to your ballbusting resolutions, browse the print newspapers, the flashback section, and much, much more. You cannot be bored while active in the Scaffies community!
Below are a lot of tips of what to expect and how to get the most out of your membership.
You are entering a not-for-profit community, ruled by majority votes of all members, and a small group of volunteer administrators, who keep the back-end running.
Here are the two things you MUST do first (we will not let you do anything until these are complete):
- Fill out your Profile
You are automatically redirected to the Edit Profile page, when you sign on for the first time.
Please note there are several ‘required’ fields, it will not let you save the profile if something is missing.
The more you write about yourself, the easier it is to get in contact with other community members – so don’t be shy, in your own interest! You can change / update your profile at any time.
- Set your Profile Picture (avatar)
A face picture is nice, but the community does not require it. Just pick something unique that fits you (NSFW images are allowed throughout the site).
upload the pic of your choice, select the area you want, and click on “Crop image” to set the picture.
We strongly recommend you use a laptop/desktop for these steps – some functions are not supported by ‘smart’ phones.
Later you can read up on why there is no ‘Scaffies App’ in either Google or Apple app stores.
- Optional but recommended: upload a Cover Picture
This step is one you don’t have to do, but it is highly recommended: the more attractive your profile, the more likely it is to gain the interest of others on here. Best have a banner image of 1,300 pixels wide and 225 pixel height for it.
With these steps completed, you are ready to dive into the world of M/M Ballbusting!
In the Scaffies community, we are a friendly bunch, and everyone feels welcome. We have only one rule here: “be nice” (not with ballbusting, but in dealing with the other members).
As the largest M/M ballbusting community, there is SO much content to watch and read, so much to do, so many to interact with, that it may at first feel overwhelming. But you will quickly get the hang of it, and on this page we walk you through it step-by-step, so that you can easily enjoy all the benefits of being here.

The Newspaper: The Scaffington Post
Every time you log in, you get redirected to the newspaper – your “one-stop shop” to everything in the community. The newspaper updates automatically, so you have always the freshest information available. You can always jump directly to it by clicking on “Newspaper” in the menu at the top, or clicking on the shortcut on the Chat Bar at the bottom of your screen.
At the top you find who is currently online, and the latest news about the Scaffies community: “Announcements & Briefings”. There is also all information about the next upcoming monthly SCAFFCON conference.
So you do not miss anything, you find on the left side various options to look at the latest content posted, topic posts by timeline, the latest member polls, links to all member polls and the site polls (made by volunteer admins). On the opposite side you see the Editor Journal with a multitude of references, technical announcements, and an overview of your messages and notifications – including an option to clear them (not all disappear automatically after you checked them out).
Below that you find a preview of the latest 20-or-so new topics on the left side, and the latest replies to them on the right side, along with the latest pictures posted by members in their galleries (there are also video galleries and document folders: members have all the options!).
Then there are the latest meeting opportunities (personals), the latest art works by Madeira Desouza and SparkieShock, the latest Sports Busts, and finally the “adult” section with naked balls. In this mockup it is the blurred version of the current picture, a ballbusting machine in action (GIF).
Finally, there is also a Financials section, with all links to the cryptocurrency and your own wallet, plus a list of the top wallets and where your own stands in the listing. On the right side, you also find the latest activities by members — this listing changes with every time you reload the page.
Sections of this Mock-Up are blurred to make it SFW and protect members’ privacy
In the past, there were also print editions of the newspaper (The Scaffington Post on Sundays in Print, The Express, The News Express – all public), which went through several incarnations over the years, until it became the replacement of the internal “home” page. It is said “nothing is as old as yesterday’s news” … however, in this case, it is always fun to browse through the papers, plus you can learn a lot about the community and its members. You have access to all newspapers in the “Newspapers” menu.
Editor Journal – Newspaper expanded
Reference links took too much space on the newspaper, so this section was separated. Here (public) you find constantly updated static links to topics and learning options, such as (excerpt screenshot):
Questions & Answers
There is an extensive library of Questions and Answers to and from other members – browse through them, or ask your own questions to the community!
You find the section nder the “Newspaper” menu:
There are stand-alone and group forums, dedicated to a wide variety of topics.
In the “Content” menu you can see the overview of all the forums, and under the “All 225 Groups” menu you find all available groups.
Under the “Newspaper” ( = Information) menu you find all recent topic listings — along list sorted by interest blocks. Here is a cut-out snapshot of it:
