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.

Whoisakin Channels His Love For Anime In the New Video For ‘Magic’

The single, featuring Olayinka Ehi, comes off his latest EP Full Moon Weekends.

Nigerian singer-songwriter Whoisakin is sharing a new music video to accompany his hit summer release, "Magic".

His roots certainly show true as his Lagos inspired trap soul/R&B sounds fill us up with feelings of summer and a love made from dreams.

High off of a recent feature in Rolling Stone, Whoisakin's latest music video comes off of his debut EP Full Moon Weekends, his first release as a part of Mr Eazi's #emPawa30 project.

With all of the successes and accomplishments that have come along with it, the original story behind the song isn't as sweet, "Magic was actually inspired by a summer 2019 fling I had with some girl", the 22-year-old singer says, "Even though I thought the relationship had potential at the early stages, she never felt the same way and it was just 'vibes' for her. I mean the moments were beautiful but they never lasted. I made the record a few weeks after we were over. She got upset at me and that was it."

He went on to speak about his first release into the music industry as, "a full story about me and my relationships in 2019, basically. I was doing an internship with some construction company at the time so I had a whole lot of time to live life (especially the nightlife), experience new things. So, I felt like an animated series for the whole tape would be the best way to share the story better. Plus, I'm a big anime fan."
