One of the most common myths in the Black community (yes, the whole entire Black community) is that Black women arenâ€™t brain surgeons. And I donâ€™t mean the types with M.D. after their names either, though Iâ€™m sure for the women with M.D. after their name the double entendre has to be hilarious. Iâ€™ve heard for years that oral sex was a white woman sport, even being immortalized by poet laureate Plies in his now famous song, â€œBeckyâ€.
By the way, please donâ€™t ever listen to Plies. Listen to me now; believe me later on.
Well, the myth, along with the devil, is a lie. On â€œBraxton Family Valuesâ€, WEtvâ€™s show about the lives of Toni Braxton and her sisters, Trina admitted that she gave some dome to a band mate of hers causing Tamar, the loud-mouthed, often wrong, and absolutely most extra woman on the planet, to claim that Black women didnâ€™t do that.
Say what? Oh no she didnâ€™t. I can personally say that Iâ€™ve only known two Black women ever who â€œclaimedâ€ to have never â€œdone that.â€ And honestly, I donâ€™t believe them. At all. Both of them protest that the act itself is too nasty to do with anybody outside of their husbands, of which neither has one. Coincidentally, neither is engaged or married OR opposed to any man giving her special kisses where the â€œsun donâ€™t shineâ€. And to complete the murder, theyâ€™re not smart enough, fine enough, or funny enough to NOT do it. And yes, I wrote that out loud.
I can honestly say that aside from those two women, every other woman I know not only engages in the act, they actually enjoy it. Hell, some women are to the point where they enjoy it so much that they offer tips to their wayward friends who either donâ€™t know, donâ€™t show, or just donâ€™t care to learn whatâ€™s going on in Mr. Rogerâ€™s neighborhood. At this point in our collective sexual histories, very little is taboo or even off limits. Sex is everywhere you want to be. Itâ€™s like Visa. Not to say that anybody should be acting reckless with their sexual exploits and yes, you should use protection and preventative measures if youâ€™re going to casually engage in any type of sex.
But real talk, a Black woman â€“ or any woman for that matter â€“ giving a man head is so not a big deal. Trina was right to say that. Itâ€™s a part of the sexual experience that most men and women share with one another. And very few men are really going to look at a woman with disgust after sheâ€™s dropped down and got her seagull on. If sheâ€™s any good at it, he just might propose. Take note.
Now of course, as a man you canâ€™t go expecting every woman to top you off just because. And maybe thatâ€™s where it all gets lost in translation because a lot of men view it as an entitlement as opposed to a privilege, like we do with sex. And yes, that is a problem. So maybe Black women just like to teach their men a lesson about entitlements and I suppose thatâ€™s fair.
But that has NOTHING to do with the fact that women actually enjoy the act of giving some of that good ole kneepad love.
So Tamar is again, as with so many other things in life, wrong. Plus sheâ€™s married. You canâ€™t convince me that sheâ€™s not topping off Vince. Sheâ€™s WAY too annoying to stay married to if you arenâ€™t being satisfied in the bedroom.
Anyway, the larger point is, where the hell did this myth even come from? And why does it persist? Does it even persist? Are there any women out there who really believe this to be true?
Inquiring minds would like to know.
Civil rights, y’all. Civil rights.
