Waiting to Exhale taught me so much

One of the most influential movies to ever teach me about sex debuted twenty years ago, today – the beastly Waiting to Exhale. That movie taught me so much about sex and sexuality from the African American woman’s perspective. From Angela Basset setting an entire BMW on fire because her husband left her for a white woman he was having sex with, and who doubled as his secretary. To Whitney’s high-class ass having sex with a man who makes the most guttural sounds when he orgasms during sex. And Lela Rochon’s abortion… And lest we never forget that Queen Sister Loretta Divine kisses Gregory Hines. There was just so much… And that soundtrack a piece of art! There should be an entire 3-hour class session dedicated to analyzing this movie.
