“I Don’t Understand This Obsession With Tightness”: South African Web Series Goes There With Black Women And Sex

- By Bossip Staff


A South African based web series is tackling the topic of Black women and sex head on in their candid conversations. Mmabatho Montsho, a South African actress, produced “Women on Sex” to explore the impact of sex in the everyday lives of South African woman, but many of her honest talks impact Black woman across the world. The latest installment of the 10-part series discusses Emancipating the Vagina and Rape Culture. In talks of freeing a woman’s private parts, ladies can be seen discussing common sex myths attached to frequent sexual activity. “I heard that you could tell a girl has too much sex by the amount of cellulite on her thighs. So, I used to workout so hard… so people don’t accuse me of having sex,” said South African actress Masasa Mbangeni.
