Erotic provocateur, racially-influenced humanist, relentless champion for the oppressed, and facilitator for social change, Scottie Lowe is the brain child, creative genius and the blood, sweat, and tears behind AfroerotiK. Intended to be part academic, part educational, and part sensual, she, yes SHE gave birth to the website to provide people of African descent a place to escape the narrow-mined, stereotypical, limiting and oft-times degrading beliefs that abound about our sexuality. No, not all Black men are driven by lust by white flesh or to create babies and walk away. No, not all Black women are promiscuous welfare queens. And as hard as it may be to believe, no, not all gay Black men are feminine, down low, or HIV positive. Scottie is putting everything on the table to discuss, debate, and dismantle stereotypes in a healthy exchange of ideas. She hopes to provide a more holistic, informed, and enlightened discussion of Black sexuality and dreams of helping couples be more open, honest, and adventurous in their relationships.

Redefining Black Manhood with Arielle Loren 08/16 by AfroerotiK | Blog Talk Radio

Nigga, thug, balla, stud, Mandingo, player, dog, provider, masculine, drug dealer, head of household, hard, athlete, criminal, threat to society . . . all of these words have been used to describe the Black man.  Join with me tonight as we start painting a new picture of what it means to be a Black man. 

Loving, nurturing, supportive, available, mature, sensitive, equal, partner, committed, sensual, compassionate, regal, proud, strong, resilient . . . all  of these words are words that will define the NEW Black man, one who is working on being a better man and healing his emotional issues.  Join me tonight in the conversation that will frame the concept of evolved Black manhood.
