Often times, black female bodies are reduced (not as a work of art), but a perverse pleasure to only serve as a purpose of satisfaction and not respected as the direct descendants of the great mother that birthed humanity. In some spaces, the idea of a female receiving satisfaction is robbed from her experiencing it completely by means of clitoridectomy and female genital mutilation. Black females’ bodies (along with voices) have been silenced by Government, organized religon, White Supremacy, White Feminism, Black men and unfortunately, willing black female participants. However, I will not deny nor silence my sexual sensual desires that I feel and experience as a woman. Those who choose not to see the beauty of erotica and the erotic noire are simply denying their intuitions and desires for the sake of others feeling comfortable and in control. Thus, Coffee and Cognac: A Succulent Sip, emerged from the longing of loving our bodies, embracing our desires, acknowledging the connection is deeper than the meeting of His Yin and Her Yoni, and of course, how two elixirs, two libations can alleviate pain, smooth things over, quiet spirits, entice taste buds or engage excitement….the same way the performance of intimacy has always captured and release signs (and sounds) of pleasure.
