Heaux Tales: Listen To The Latest Episode Of xoNecole's Happy Hour Podcast

Let's get into a thorough deep-dive into everything "hoe", shall we?

Love & Relationships

What is it about an independent, sexually aware woman sends men running for the hills? It is often the question reserved for the fourth or fifth glass of wine, surrounded by your best gal pals; everyone left still wondering but feeling more connected in the end. Is it the success? The self-actualization? The imperishable confidence? According to Sheriden Chanel and Amer Woods, it's probably a combination of all three and they hold nothing back in the latest episode of xoNecole's Happy Hour Podcast.

In this week's episode of Happy Hour, co-hosts Sheriden and Amer break down their feelings on extravagant gifts for Valentine's Day, the double standard facing successful women, and a thorough deep-dive into everything 'hoe'.

"Regarding Heaux Tales and Hoe Phases", an episode that pays homage to the newest studio album released from songstress Jazmine Sullivan, the duo explores the juiciest topics surrounding what it means to be a hoe, with intellect and humor. The conversation leads to questions like, "Is there is an element of tricking in traditional marriage?" or "Are there different ways to have a hoe phase?"

The ladies touch on the topic of double standards within society and media that tell women they shouldn't be sexually aware, with the most recent example being the controversy surrounding Lori Harvey's dating life. But even though those double standards exist, both in society and in a relationship, it should not be a driving force in your love life. The importance of doing you, regardless of what anyone is doing, is constantly stressed by Sheriden and Amer.

"Personally, I want to be a woman. I want to stand on my own platform, as a woman. I don't necessarily want to compare myself to the man and what he's doing." - Sheriden

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
