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

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
