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.

- Not all interracial relationships are formed out of diseased mindsets even if they are few and far between. There are Black men who are self-aware involved with white women who are not objectifying Black men who are in relationships.
- Black men, even if they don’t recognize how their preferences were formed, even if they can’t articulate why they prefer white women over Black women, should have at least one place where they aren’t made out to be the Mandingo, ghetto thug, big black cock, hypersexual stud that white society makes them out to be, and that’s ultimately why I created AfroerotiK. It shouldn’t matter if they are attracted to Black women or not, they are still deserving of erotica that doesn’t perpetuate negative stereotypes about them.
- I think if I write erotica that features white women and Black men in healthy relationships, it just might cause Black men to reflect on their sentiments and white women to examine their motives and biases and I can use this as a teachable moment as well.
