Queen Sugar Got Us Asking If It's OK for Sisters to Dip from the Same Dating Pool?

Boys don’t get this memo right away and are just happy to ask everyone for their number until they learn to become selective. Some boys grow into men and still don’t learn that lesson and everyone is fair game; mother, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, everyone.

I performed oral sex on him.
He said I demanded it.
I trusted him.
