Anthony Anderson’s Mom Taught Him The Right Way To “Go Downtown” To Help Other Women
As if having the birds and the bees conversation with your parents when you were young (or some much shorter version that consists simply of “Don’t be fast”) wasn’t awkward enough, imagine being an adult and being taught the right and wrong way to perform oral sex by them. Thankfully, Anthony Anderson has a good sense of humor about the whole thing, because he wasn’t afraid to share his story with the world. While vising Conan O’Brien’s talk show, the Black-ish star talked about the time his mother confronted him and his homeboys about doing right by women by knowing the proper way to go downtown. Why? Anderson’s father was terrible at it and she didn’t want her sons to think weak cunnilingus skills were acceptable.
“My mother taught me how to go downtown,” Anderson said as the audience hollered and O’Brien looked quite confused. “Taught me how to knock the man out the boat. My momma taught me how to eat the cookie. Oral sex, Conan. Oral sex.”
According to him, after returning home from college, Anderson’s mom, Doris, approached him and his friends about their sexual activities.
“I was in my early 20s, I had just come home from college,” he said. “We happened to be sitting around in the family room, not only me but my buddies and their girlfriends. She not only taught me and my brothers and my boys, but also the women, how to do what they needed to do.”
Anderson said she did this by showing them adult videos and explaining what should and shouldn’t be done based on what they were seeing. Ms. Doris stayed with her tapes.
“My mother has a very extensive video collection,” Anderson shared. “She would put the videos on and go into graphic detail as to what was happening in the video and what either me and my brothers or the young ladies should be doing.”
He continued, “Her motivation was my father didn’t know how to eat pu–y. So she said, ‘I will be damned if I send my three boys out in the world not knowing how to do that. It’s my duty as a woman to teach you to do this properly because your daddy didn’t know what the hell he was doing.’ That’s the reason behind it.”
For Anderson, he didn’t really see it as odd in the way that others might. In fact, he said it was great knowledge imparted on him, and at one time after the fact, he even filled his mom in on how her teachings were going.
“I would actually call my mother on the phone and say, ‘Momma, they don’t believe you taught me this,’ he said. “And she’d say, ‘Girl, did he do it right? Did he do it right?!'”
Again, I know it might sound disturbing, but watching the short conversation makes it a quite comical story. See for yourself:
