Amber Rose loves sex and she wants everyone to know. It’s a bit jarring to hear someone talk so explicitly about their sex life, and I’ll admit that sometimes when I’m scrolling through her Instagram, I’m like, “Daaaaamn, she said it!”
But the only reason it’s jarring is because we talk about sex in a very prudish way, and women in particular are supposed to act like sex is something they might do, for the right person—but they’re not supposed to enjoy anything but missionary with the lights off and their shirt on. And they can’t enjoy it too much.
At the end of July, Amber Rose made a joke on her talk show about Wiz Khalifa coming on her face.
She said, “This weekend I went to Charlotte, North Carolina to see my baby father perform while he's on tour with Snoop. And I'm actually still high. I don't even smoke, but I'm still high. I'm high as shit...Now you know that we have Sebastian together, and I really, really want another baby. So I asked him for his sperm, like I always do every time I'm around him. And, I'm like, you know, he'll probably probably give me some more sperm so we can have another baby. But instead, he just put his babies on my face. Thanks, Wiz.”
Yes, that’s pretty explicit, but the reactions to it were far more insane. It’s such a weird double standard that she is describing a sex act featured frequently in pornography, yet to assume that a woman might enjoy or accept it is out of the question. So, I guess men get off on women not enjoying what they do to them! That seems to be what Amber Rose says in a follow \up, in which she criticizes people for shaming women’s sexuality:
Amber Rose has been a lightning rod for this kind of press, but she’s great at handling it. I doubt she’s going to back off the issue any time soon.
