August Alsina Explains Why He Doesn’t Go Down On Women

April 15, 2014  |  

August Alsina is the New Orleans-bred R&B singer responsible for the hit “I Luv This Sh!t” as well as the remix with Trey Songz and Chris Brown, but one thing we found out the youngin’ doesn’t love is going down on women. Sigh. When the 21 year old stopped by the office late last week to talk about his debut studio album, Testimony, we had to ask him about comments he recently made on The Breakfast Club about not pleasing a woman and all we can say is, it must be the age…

One thing’s for sure is August isn’t one to let others influence him, including the industry, which is why that stance likely won’t be changing soon, nor will his thoughts on other artists in the game who he’s already found out aren’t always who they appear to be (ahem Trey Songz). In our interview, August talked about the beef with his fellow R&B crooner as well as what makes him different as an artist and why he’ll always be the same person he is today. Thoughts?

    Cool. If you’re not doing me, don’t expect me to do you!

  • tesh

    at least he is open and honest about it. So many lying dudes around here and they doing the most, idc if a man doesnt eat it, IDK where they mouth been and these guys dont even mention or probably know what a dental dam is. Ladies act like they just too clear, but have unprotected sex with random guys who been with lord knows what. he is talented, nice looking, has style, has a story which will humble him through it all. Unlike everyone following the kardashians and all these other drama filled celebs. Support a YOUNG, BLACK, MALE who is just being himself like he should be.

  • Uhmbaya Laury

    Omg love this interview he be keeping it 100

  • Antoinette Hines

    Too turnoff!

  • Danielle

    That’s what I’m talking about, a leader and not a follower, people mad cause he don’t eat coodie cat? Really? You should stop if your doing it, I mean really, why would he want to slurp another mans juices up from an organ that bleeds from 2-7.days and doesn’t die? In this world lasciviousness rules and the weak are fascinated and influenced by it. I dig this dude mentality.

  • Likewaterforchoc

    Oddly enough, upon first seeing him, I thought his mouth (physically) was the MOST attractive quality about him.

  • Maggie

    This is a young New Orleans guy thing. When I was younger and in the NO…this was something that black guys were very proud to say that they didn’t do. But I think they all secretly did it lol

    He is a serious jerk. I liked his lil song but after witnessing his personality Im not too interested in anything else he puts out. He aint even been around long enough to be acting all batty. #teamtrey

  • Tiff

    I’m really starting not to like this guy…

  • general

    If u got decent cooch ,he’ll go there……..not every women has decent cooch….he got standards and a little prestige now so he’s got the leverage to feel that way…….thats all…..but as soon as he finds his “dime piece” he’ll be all in that stuff.!!!!

  • mmmdot

    And that’s my point. It really doesn’t matter how much money you have or how fine you are. There is no sufficient excuse for being *THAT* selfish and immature in bed. When you are a ‘man’ who says this, it makes you look like you haven’t been through sex ed in middle school. As a grown man, you should know enough to know enough to know that a v@gina is not dirtier then p@nis and so there is nothing debasing about putting your mouth on one if you’re in the middle of having sex. The same goes for a d!ck. The only reason he is claiming this is because of the stigmas around v@gina’s being dirty. It has nothing to do with leverage. If you want oral you should be willing to give it, and I KNOW this guy expects oral from every woman he sleeps with. It should be the same thing the other way around, otherwise don’t ask for something that you are not willing to give.

    • general

      Baby……I understand where ur coming from…ur thinking about it in the moral sence and im thinking about it in the practical sence…..thats all babe…but I c ur point!!!…but at the end of the day ,its the person with the leverage thats gonna dictate the terms of the encounter anyway…..thats all!!!

      • mmmdot

        I guess we just have to agree to disagree. Because I think his kind of immature and selfish attitude results from sexism and people having a lack of comprehensive sex education in America. Everyone needs to know that v@ginas are as clean as other parts of the body, the reason people often don’t is b/c we don’t learn shxt about our bodies and even when we *DO* know better, there is sexism and the media to reinforce the notion that women’s vaginas naturally smell like fish unless they are douching with Summer’s Eve.

        • general

          Baby…….the kid is new in his career and he’s young…!!!!!!……when he starts messing with some decent cooch he’ll feel different. ….trust me!

    Now he’s cussing out hosts on 106 & Park because they ask questions he doesn’t like. Not cute, dude. Get some media training or something or you won’t be around in 2 or 3 years.


    @Eating kitty, he don’t have to do it, it’s his choice but I tell you what when he get that one he really feelin’ he’ll do it lol.


    According to what I saw in this interview he’s alright by me…..He seems like he sticks to his gun, most artist are like this when they first get into the industry, then when sales start to struggle and they buckle under pressure…that’s when the change occurs, things they said they will never do, they start doing. I hope he stands firm!


    I agree with him about individuality….everybody shouldn’t be the next Beyonce, Whitney, or Mariah. I know music execs try to stick to the script, stick to what works BUT that takes the originality and soul out if the artist and music….Point. Blank. Period!

    Wow I guess it takes intellectual minded people to understand that August Alsina CLEARLY said he won’t do that with just anybody…he DIDN’T say he DOESN’T do it.. I would appreciate a man who doesn’t go out doing that to anyone. To say what he probably expects is biased.

  • mmmdot

    Ugh. Seriously? How the fxck do “men” who say shxt like this get anyone to fxck them? Seriously, how selfish can you can get? I know that if a chick said she wasn’t going down on any man, ever, not only would this guy not fxck her, he would probably clown her. Because or@l sex is a basic part of sex and if you’re not giving it then you damn sure don’t deserve it in return. He needs to either shut the fxck up or grow the fxck up. The end.

    • Xzamilio

      Because as much as some of these chicks tell themselves that they want a real man and that they won’t fall for BS, all this brotha has to do is lick his lips and smile and he’ll have 10 of these thirsty groupies Mimi’ing his ding-a-ling like it’s a lollipop laced with molly.

      Hello my “running “friend. ………..its all about leverage…is she a nice looking women,does he have a couple of bucks?????you know!!!……leverage. ..some have it most dont….and when u have it the rules are different. ..thats why some women have men falling all over them fighting to claim a child from them and other women gotta battle to get a guy to just acknowledge a baby….

      • mmmdot

        Yea, and it’s still not a sufficient excuse for being selfish in bed and with or@l sex. Like I said, I’m sure there is no way in hell that he would even mess around with a casual hook up if she wouldn’t give him head. Hell, that’s how a lot of casual hookups start–so there is no excuse. The v@gina is not a dirtier then a p@nis.

    So Trey Songz apparently got him in his feelings. And he doesn’t go down on women (I bet he has no problem with a woman going down on him, though). Such a riveting interview!

  • kiki j

    It’s a whole lot of deadly diseases linked to s e x some which can’t be protected by rubbers I bet that don’t stop from having s e x.

  • kiki j

    They still make men that don’t do that? I don’t think I’ve ever met one lol not even at 21! And I’m sure microphone check is a requirement for him so any woman who sleeps with him is selling herself short. That’s a requirement! Otherwise it’s a DO NOT ENTER ZONE. And if his fear is that she isn’t clean down there than he’s stupid for sticking his D down there. He better grow up. The only woman he’ll get that’s cool with that is a woman that’s cool with cleaning out his bank account.

    • nicki baby


  • heaven41286

    Young mentality because if giving is faux pas then receiving would be too…he’ll fall in love someday and be slurping and munching with hearts in his eyes!

  • guest

    He is young and just talking but eating pussi is submissive, probably does more harm than good because it reduces a man’s stature. There was a time when Black men took it as a insult and it’s probably another ploy by the establishment to cause problems in the Black family.

    • Trish Chasity

      That is total BS! Lots of men have the feeling that not reciprocating to women during oral pleasure is silly and wrong. They have no problem getting it

  • Tonyoardee

    Could you love a man that didn’t want any parts of pleasing you orally?

    • kiki j

      No because we wouldn’t even make it far enough to ever speak of those feelings! And I bet he would say the same lol. People put too many restrictions on s e x. I bet If there were less restrictions less people would cheat.

      • coolyfett

        Good point.

      • guest

        Doubt it. My friend says him and his girl get freakier than most and her sex drive his higher than his, but he still finds time to cheat. He likes the variety. Most people that cheat don’t even talk about sex with their partner to even know what the restrictions are. They just make assumptions and go out and cheat. With so many willing participants, why should they resist the temptation. Like you said, there should be less restriction right?

        • mmmdot

          That is just literally all kinds of fxcked up. And there is a difference between having an agreement with your partner to have an open relationship and going out and cheating behind their backs. One of these things is not like the other.

        • kiki j

          That’s why I said LESS people and not MORE. There are many people (men and especially women) who cheat because their partner doesn’t satisfy them. And most aren’t satisfied because of their partner not getting into what they get into. That doesn’t go for the type of people who cheat just because.

    • I_am_a_Gladiator/Scandalista

      Hell no.

  • Imani

    Not impressed *shrugs*, I like that song, it’s catchy, but other than that…. Just… Not impressed. He doesn’t eat the box, cool, but what does that have to do with your music?

  • Mrs.Mason

    He might be feelin the fellas more than the ladies…maybe that is why he is not going down ….

  • bee

    Kudos to him! I don’t understand how someone would just put her or his mouth on just any ol’ vag or peen; not to say it is disgusting or anything, but dang. He’ll probably grow into it .. lol if not, heeey.

  • I’m Not One To Gossip But….

    I don’t see anything wrong with him not going down on women, I just hope he doesn’t have an issue with a woman not going down on him. Matter of fact, we would be great together, because I can most certainly do without that part of intimacy. (going down on the guy)

    • I_am_a_Gladiator/Scandalista

      I dont have a problem going down on my man because I expect him to go down on me because I enjoy it very much just like I am sure he does. Men kill me with that mess.

They are some freaky deeky people! It’s also easy to find out the gossip at small schools.

      Because he’s trying to make a name for himself right now. He’s basically a nobody in the industry right now (as far as stardom is concerned) and what better way to get some lime light? How about a public beef with a well known star like Trey Songs!!! This isn’t surprising at all. *yawns*

  • Brittany

    I enjoy his music and down to earth spirit. Personally I think he’s incredibly handsome but a few muscles wouldn’t hurt. Lol I also agree the term “Thot” is ridiculous and so annoying because half of you can’t even use an ebonic term correctly.

    Love this guy! I love his style, his sound/music, his individuality, his confidence, shiiiiiiiit just him. Lol plus he’s fine af (imo) and that lil NOLA accent…baybee! I can’t stress how much his confidence keeps me as a fan – I love security in a man. Idk, I know I don’t know him but he comes across so genuine and humble, his music is relatable, I’ve seen him live and he puts on a great show, very engaging with the crowd and soooooo thankful to be in is current position. This interview only strengthened my admiration for him. I want to see him thrive. To go off what he said, and in the words of Oscar Wilde, be yourself, everybody else is already taken. With his views, demeanor, and outlook, he should be able to go far.

  • NVAdamzz

    It sounds like he’s just saying that he’s selective of whose box he eats which is a good thing because oral is very intimate. But what I don’t understand is people who claim they don’t perform oral on “just anybody” but will bust it open/stick their pęnis in “just anybody”. It’s all a part of sęx so if you don’t feel comfortable enough with someone to do it all the way, perhaps you shouldn’t be doing it with that person at all.

    • k

      I was thinking the same thing. I will not even date a guy who doesn’t do that because if we get intimate what else do I have to look for. Maybe it’s his age but I know some 40 year old men who don’t do it and they can’t keep a woman. If they do keep a woman she is older and takes care of him. They just want a man. I’m not that person.

      Well with the industry he is in I’m pretty sure he gets plenty without having to give anything. You can say that’s wrong but no one forces groupies to do what they do. That’s on them. He’s young anyway only 21 it’s not like he is 30. Young guys have to grow a little fall in love …..

      • NVAdamzz

        My comment wasn’t to say that women (groupies) won’t sleep with him without getting any head. It was saying that if you don’t think it’s clean enough to eat off of, why stick your thing in it? That makes no sense to me.
