It's another day of talking about sex for Real Housewives of Atlanta
star Kandi Burruss. She stopped by former NYC Housewife
Bethenny Frankel's new daytime talk show Bethenny
to talk about her new sex toy line Bedroom Kandi
Before getting down to the dirty details of her line, Kandi talked about being the face of sexual liberation for women in the black community.
"The crazy thing is I didn't try to make it a race issue, but because I'm black I found it along the way," Kandi said. "Because I'm black, obviously, I had a lot of people come up to me and say 'Did you realize you're the face of black women being more liberated and talking about sex?' And I didn't realize that until now."
Kandi claims that although she wasn't necessarily targeting her products to a certain community, it makes sense because to a certain extent, the topic of sex and sex toys is still "hush-hush" and "taboo." She also said it's a touchy subject, especially when dealing with the men.
"Black men a lot of times are not down with that at all because it's this whole thing of 'black men are supposed to be swinging,' which a lot of them are not," Kandi said. "But they feel like 'you don't need that; I'm handling things around here.'"
Kandi said she designed her toy line specifically because women deserve to have their moment just as often as men do. And with her background in the music industry, it made sense to develop a product that had a beat.
