We Asked Seven Black Millennials Awkward Questions About Sex and Dating, Here's What Happened

We gathered a group of young black people to answer the pressing questions about sex, love and dating.

When it comes to talking about sex and relationships, it's best to just keep it real. Sometimes it feels like candid and open dialogue about such topics is lacking, especially as they relate to young black people.


We're at a time in our lives when relationships and dating can be especially complicated, but—for the lucky among us—they can be really great too. Either way, it never hurts to have an honest conversation.

We gathered a group of black millennials to do just that. We asked them to share their thoughts on dating outside their race, sex on the first date, relationship deal breakers and more.

Watch the video below to get candid answers to burning questions about love, sex and relationships. At the very least, get a good laugh.

Zambia has relentlessly developed a vibrant music scene in recent times, instigating new genres like Zambian Rock (Zamrock), Trapundula (a music genre following the driving element of Kalindula) and putting their own spin on afrobeats.
