Ready? Let’s get to it.
Describe yourself in three sentences or less.
I believe in God and his son Jesus! I have an unwavering belief in my own ability to shape my reality. I am the most interesting man in the world.
1. Is there something about your life or lifestyle that makes your perspective on dating/relationships unique?
Due to an interesting set of life circumstances, I ended up being raised by a team of really great black women. My grandmother, her daughter, and my grandmothers two sisters (My Great Aunts) probably had the biggest influence on the person I grew into. Much of what I know and understand about women comes from the fact that I’ve been managing relationships with women for my entire life. I learned early what it means to live with a woman, what a woman expects from a man she loves, the subtle differences in how sexes communicate, and just how deep a woman’s love can go. My best friends are almost all women, and I’ve ‘known’ many women in my time.
Also, I’m going into my 5th year of marriage, nothing teaches more about what it takes to create a successful relationship than having a successful relationship. The first 5 years of marriage are like the first 5 years a bluechip NBA player spends with the team that drafted him. After that first 5 years is up, you renegotiate your contract and re-up for another 5 or … you take your talents to South Beach. We’re in the process of renegotiating our contract with one another and I’m 100% certain we’ll re-sign with each other. She’s not demanding a trade, nor am I.
2. To what extent are you willing to adapt this lifestyle to that of your partner?
When it comes to interpersonal relationships, I think I’m a bit too controlling to adapt to someones lifestyle. I’m not controlling in a deliberate, mean, heavy handed sort of way. I think I just have a subtly dominant sort of personality. In most of my relationships, eventually, the person I’m with just begins to see things my way on most issues.
3. Thong or boyshorts?
I don’t have a preference.
4. Could you be in a relationship that is not monogamous? Why or why not?
Not a committed relationship – no. I think the point to committing to each other is to say that, I’m with you and no one else, and you’re with me and no one else. Now, I have been in relationships that didn’t have those sorts of boundaries. But, I don’t consider those to be real relationships. We were just enjoying each other’s company for an undefined period of time.
5. True or false: it is rude for a man not to call the woman the day after he slams for the first time.
6. If you were alone in your boy/girlfriend’s house, would you snoop?
I’m too confindent in my own ability to control the person I’m with to ever consider snooping. Snooping, for me, would mean admitting that I’d lost the measure of control necessary to compel the person I was with to #1: Be incapable of infidelity and #2: Be compelled to tell me if they were even considering keeping something from me.
7. What is your favorite sexual position?
Missionary, with her ankles at my ears and my hands gripping her shoulders rendering her completely incapable of sliding all over the bed or from using her legs as leverage in preventing me from inserting every glorious inch of myself into her.
8. Name the most interesting place you have had sex.
In a car while parked on a pier at dusk.
11. What is something you have always wanted to try, but haven’t yet?
Sex with someone who intimidates me.
12. Best piece of relationship advice you’ve ever been given?
“Now that you’re married, don’t be in a rush to have kids.” All of my married friends with kids told me this. It’s not that they hate their kids, but, that it’s that having kids changes everything. It’s a much bigger jump to go from being a married couple with no kids, to being a married couple with kids, than it is a to go from being two people in a serious, long term relationship to being a married couple. That’s an awkward sentence, I hope you all get what I’m saying though.
14. What is the most sensitive spot on your body?
I am easily tickled… pretty much all over.
16. What is your most embarrassing sexual experience?
First time I experienced love with no protection I lasted, maybe two or 3 strokes.
17. What’s your fatal flaw in relationships?
I don’t know that I have one. My wife is pretty happy I must say. If anything, I guess it’s that I’m almost completely detached from my emotions. I don’t really feel things the way most people do. It’s a gift and a curse. I love my wife, but, I choose to love her. I don’t really feel those warm, fuzzy feelings people normally associate with love.
18. If you had a super power what would it be? Why?
I saw a preview for a new movie where a dude takes a pill that gives him the ability to use 100% of his brain’s power, instead the 20% we’re able to use normally. If I had any super power, I think I’d want to be able to use all of my brain. That would be dope because, the power is already there, it’s just untapped. Instead of finding a ring and the ring giving you power, or, having power because you came from another planet, or not really having power, but having a lot of money to buy cool gadgets to accentuate your advanced martial arts skills, being able to access 100% of your brain’s ability just means you get to be able to be the absolute best version of yourself you could possibly be.
19. What turns you on?
Women who are really comfortable in their own skin. I like a woman who’s sure of herself with her clothes on, and with her clothes off. I’m very comfortable with myself and I think sex is best when both people are totally comfortable with themselves. It allows you to be free of inhibition and to let go, and just do what comes natural. Seeing a woman be completely comfortable in her own skin makes me think she’s probably great in bed… and that’s turns me on.
21. What would the title of your autobiography be?
On the Shoulders of Giants
22. What’s the first thing you notice in a woman?
Face. I am, above all else, a sucker for a pretty face. Throw in a nice smile and a great set of pearly whites, and I’m good.
24. If your friend was cheating, would you tell their partner?
I respect the G-Code.
25. Name three famous women you’d put a hurting on if you had the chance.
Keri Hilson, Phylicia Rashad as Aunt Polly, Jill Scott
27. Do you know what a dirty sanchez is?
Yes, but only from googling it after reading this question on the first Any 10 Tuesday.
28. Have you ever been caught masturbating?
You guys know what to do right? Weigh in, discuss, heckle in the comments.
