Wife dating black guy in hotel
I grew up believing a number of stereotypes about non-Black men, especially when it came to sex.
If you asked most of my friends, their packages tended to be small unless they were of Latin or Italian descent, but they made up for it in the oral sex arena.
Janice Rhoshalle Littlejohn, co-author of the soon-to-be released put it best in the chapter called, “Let’s Talk About Sex …
and Stereotypes”: “We think we have evolved into new-millennium modern-day thinkers, but black women all over the country, regardless of education and socioeconomic status, are living with age-old ideas when it comes to our consideration of the ideal sexual partner.
We yearn to embrace our sexual bliss, and yet have allowed what our mothers, grandmothers, aunties, and sister-friends have said about “them” keep us from pursuing something new.
I was looking to get away from the city, so I accepted, of course, booking my own hotel room, and arriving days late on my own schedule.
Prior to that, I had shared my body with White Brasilians and Argentineans. This made me feel like my growth had come full circle, as I struggled growing up in a predominately White Jersey suburb to feel like interracial dating was an option for a young Black woman.
While young Black men certainly enjoyed relationships with young White women in my town, Black girls rarely were seen exploring the same types of relationships. But the opportunities weren’t equal or treated the same.
So when we hung out, all of the sudden our platonic friendship transformed into a prospect, even though it had likely already been a prospect for him months back.
I was sick, blowing my runny nose, and coughing, but he still wrapped his arms around me, made me tea, and made sure I was comfortable in his home.
