I recently took in Good Hair, Chris Rock's new documentary on the good, the bad, and the unbeweaveable of hair in the African American community. On a side note, the movie was great. I'm starting to think Rock has found his genre as that was the best thing I've seen him in since CB-4. But that's not the issue. Of course, B took issue with the section dealing with sex. Pretty much every man in the movie stated that touching a black woman's hair during sex is the equivilant of sticking things in the exit door-unallowed, unless you want it ripped off. I've never had a weave and I also had no idea you couldn't give it a good yank. Ok, well maybe I did as that's the first thing flying, aside from punches, in a chick fight, but I didn't realize how far it went. No hair pulling or touching AT ALL? That's insane and about as silly as betting on a two legged dog in a race.
One of my favorite things a man does is play in my hair. I love it, like a bitch in heat. It feels amazing in the bed or out. Being that it's one of the most sensual feelings, I can only imagine what it's like with railroad tracks all through it. I don't have to think too hard. It's gross.
During a particular barber shop scene, one guy joked about women having to wrap it up or get a scarf before doing the do. Again, huh? Who wants to have sex with a chick in a scarf except maybe another chick in a scarf. I know certain things go unattended to when you're comfortable with your man, and I understand that many women sleep with scarves on their heads, but during sex, that's a no-no. No one's asking you to wear $500 lingerie every time, but damn, can you at least take that scarf off? If you're rocking a weave, it's already hands off, so can he at least look at it? Feel like he's with a beautiful woman and not some dude or Britney Spears?
Black men have gotten so used to the rules of black hair they've simply accepted this crazy behavior. It's time for you guys to stand up too! Let your woman know that you ain't putting anything down until she takes her hair down. If you're doing your job right, she'll comply rather than go without.
Perhaps I'm being harsh and judgmental of the weave-wearing, scarf-donning women of the world.
No, I'm not. It's just ridiculous. Take that scarf off. Get a better sew in. Let your soul glo and all that, because just like good hair, good sex is hard to find.
Pat your weave ladies!
That bitch stole my line,
