Kinky Black History Month

Black Erotic Writings and Film

Inspired by the recent Kinky Black History Month “Erotique Noire and more” entry, this post celebrates a wider variety of artistic eroticism. This sampling comes with an understanding that there exists a plethora of black erotica both known and unknown, private and published, famous and secretly-held.

If we’re lucky, we can find bits and pieces of kink sprinkled into black erotica. The Velvet Rope by Brenda L. Thomas promises to provide it’s readers a touch of kink.

“An instant attraction, a lingering look, the electric touch of skin on skin, moments of passion that are unforgettable…” from Brown Sugar 3: When Opposites Attract (Brown Sugar):

There is an entire collection of black erotic writings over at GoodReads on their Popular African American Erotica Books page.

Finding/recalling black erotic films isn’t easy. More times than not, a general search will result in tons and tons of black porn. The focus of this post isn’t about the overt display of coitus, but rather the intimacy we share as POC between man & man, man & woman, woman & woman and all our loving genders within. It could also be considered remiss of duty for me to lose the solidly “black” focus by including films, porn and mainstream alike, that primarily highlight the black male/white female pairing. Certainly there must be films that fit under the umbrella of “black” and “erotic” without being outright porn or fetishization of the black male, right?

trois-trilogyIn hopes of showcasing a promising contender, I present the Trois Trilogy.

Trois is a 2000 thriller directed by Rob Hardy. The film was one of the highest grossing African-American films of 2000. As a result it spawned two sequels, Trois 2: Pandora’s Box and Trois 3: The Escort.

Kinky Black History Month is a collection of things kinky, erotic & touching.

It is the celebration of POC (people of color) with a focus on those who identify as Black or African-American.

For 28 days, know that we exist, some of us are kinky and all of us are worthy.

For the remaining 337 days, know that we exist, some of us are kinky and all of us are worthy.
