Well, the #1 search result is not safe for work, that’s for sure.
So the question is: why are people so fascinated by interracial sex?
Let me tell you a quick story.
I was at a conference a couple of years ago and during one of the breaks, a man came up to me and started chatting.
“What are you speaking about today?” he asked, since my nametag identified me as one of the featured speakers at the conference.
“Interracial relationships,” I replied.
As soon as the words came out of my mouth, his whole manner changed. Instead of being polite and respectful, he started leering and smirking.
“Is this based on personal experience?” he asked in a low, suggestive tone.
Actually my workshop was all about debunking myths and ripping apart stereotypes. But the minute he heard me say the word “interracial,” all he could think about was sex.
Why are people so fascinated by interracial sex?
I answer this question and many others in my audio seminar, “Not Just Fetishists and Race Traitors: Challenging the Ways We View Interracial Relationships.“

If you decide the seminar didn’t provide you with the insight you were looking for, you can contact me within 56 days and I’d be happy to refund you 100% of the cost.
PS: Don’t worry, the audio seminar costs less than your weekly Starbucks habit.
PPS: If you prefer text to audio, you can order the e-book instead. It’s a PDF file that you can either read on the screen or print out and take with you.
