Iyanla Vanzant

The following paragraph came from a book called "Best Black Women's Erotica." It is a part of the introduction in the book, which was written Iyanla Vanzant. She's an amazing woman and I hope you find her words as inspirational as I do.

In fact,to women of my mother's generation , expressions of sexuality and the notion of a woman's sexual identity were dirty. What Momma did do was warn me. She warned me never to display Molly publicly. She warned me about all the trouble Molly could get me into if I allowed people to touch her or talk to her. She went so far as to warn me about sitting on men's laps, telling me I could catch something---like pregnancy. "That's silly," I thought. Still I made it a point to never sit on men. Instead I lay down with them.-----Iyanla Vanzant
