What We Not Gone Do!

Thank you for another wonderful week tuning into The Book of Huey Podcast!

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday as we are now counting down to our Black Ass Christmas! Last week we discussed, 1v4 What We Not Gone Do!

Huey is so sick and tired of everyone thinking he’s hoeing in these streets when simply, he’s just dating around and trying to figure out who’s really there for him. However, when it comes to relationships and breaking up, Huey feels it’s important to tell that person the truth about what went wrong in the relationship. Hopefully, this honesty will help others to see where things went wrong and how to do things better in any future relationships.

Trixie, on the other hand, is really tired of people trying to take advantage of her kindness. She’s working on telling people the truth about what she’s feeling, despite how harsh it may seem at times. It’s just where she is right now until she can find a better balance of not being too abrasive with what she says. Both Huey and Trixie feel that setting expectations, speaking honestly, being assertive, and telling others “what we not finna do” will help set the bar for what they are looking for in how they want their relationships to work.

My Black Ass Thanksgiving

If you didn’t get a chance to hear it Episode 1v2 INYFB, definitely check it out! It’s sure to titillate your mind on what it means to be fetishized amongst several other interesting hot topics.

In Episode 1v3 Black Ass Thanksgiving, Huey and Trixie each had their separate shenanigans. Trixie went through the process of adopting a rescue shelter dog she affectionately named Cash Money. Adopting a new dog was a longer process than anticipated but well worth it considering the gift of potentially being a new puppy mommy! Huey enjoyed a good Friendsgiving celebration with his friends and went to an adult slumber party where he kicked-it, enjoyed hookah, and drank through the night.

I’m Not Your Fetish Bitch!

Last week, in Episode 1v1 The Road to Pre-Bae, we discussed what it means to feel as though you have been objectified and fetishized in the eyes of another person. Also, we addressed how one’s sense of self-esteem has a personal effect on his or her overall dating life.  

Check out this question one listener had for our Trix with the Fix segment:

“I’m an Afro-Latina woman with a very curvaceous Latina look. Because of my look, a lot of men tend to right away fetishize me and put me into that sex kitten hot Latina role. They right away want me to always be sexy, speak Spanish to them especially in the bedroom, and play that hot Latina role they’ve always dreamed of. I don’t want to be anyone’s fetish… I don’t even speak Spanish. How do I let these guys know that I actually am more than what they’ve fetishized me to be?

Sincerely,

I’m not your fetish… Bitch”

The Book of Huey Podcast

The Book of Huey Podcast has the pleasure of introducing you to our hosts, Huey Booker and Trixie Summerborn. Though both from Cleveland, Ohio, they didn’t meet and become friends until they connected in the Washington, D.C. area in 2015 when Huey “swan-dived face-first” in Trixie’s DMs. They are now the best of friends, talk all the time, and want to share their conversations with the world.

They have a dedicated aim and focus. “Huey and I have like the best conversations always talking about love, life, sex, relationships,” Trixie said. “I think I have a unique perspective. I’m really excited to meet more people during this process… hear different people’s opinions.”


Huey echoed Trixie’s thoughts in that he’s most excited about the types of conversations that [they’re] going to have and made it very clear that he’s no relationship guru. He likes to talk to people, debate, and probe, particularly about the show’s 5 topics – love, sex, dating, relationships, and all the fuckery in-between. It’s most important to him that The Book of Huey is a “safe ass space where people don’t feel judgement, they don’t feel condemned, and we can just talk about the different lifestyles that are available, the different opportunities that people have.”


They don’t pretend to be relationship gurus. Huey and Trixie are dedicated to speaking from the heart as they live and share from their own personal experiences. For example, Trixie recently decided to take a break from dating because she “really wasn’t meeting the type of men that [she] should be developing life long friendships or even romantic relationships with.” After getting tired of experiencing the same struggles, she decided to take a step back and “change up her circle a little bit” for different results.


Huey actually “recently started dating again” as [he] had a short-lived relationship earlier this year” that didn’t really work out. In his words, there’s no villain to that story, but Trixie adamantly disagrees.


They are passionate about open, transparent communication. We’re all very different people in our likes, preferences, and proclivities, so it stands to reason that our experiences, perspectives, decision making styles, and worldviews would also all be different.


In Huey’s opinion, people “shouldn’t wait until they’re in the midst of a passionate disagreement before they have serious conversations about compromise and their non-negotiables. At this point, it’s too late, especially if emotions are high and everyone involved is on the defensive.


It’s his hope that someone will be listening and hear something on the show that challenges them on a deeper level to find opportunities to engage in these types of dialogues, but in a safe way before there’s a problem in their relationship.

Eros

August 31, 2016

Love Isn’t Enough

As I mentioned before, the ancient Greeks were very sophisticated in their understanding of the many different expressions of love.  The first type that we’re going to talk about is eros.  Eros was the Greek god of fertility and, in terms of love, constitutes a passionate, intense, and erotic or lustful desire for someone.  In addition to its strong sexual and emotional components, eros is also marked by compassion, kindness, and consideration, as well as the desire to be emotionally and physically close to your romantic partner.  It is this powerful sexual magnetism that draws two people together in the beginning stages of a new relationship sometimes described as the honeymoon phase.
