The Shrine of the Black Madonna has been a staple of African American history and culture in Atlanta ever since its inception in 1975. While it serves the community as the ninth congregation of the Pan African Orthodox Christian Church, the site also hosts lectures and has a book store full of fiction and non-fiction…

Day after day after day, I receive advice emails from women who are in the most ridiculous of situations with men. Often the men are at least 10-25 years their senior, still living from pillar to post, but their sex game is so strong, the women are delusional. The women believe that they can change the…

Pregnant woman

Over the years, this topic has come up over and over in my advice emails. If a woman is pregnant by one man but intimately involved with another, the majority of people think she is a THOT, whore, and way too promiscuous. Now there may be certain instances where that might be the case, such…

Dating can be quite expensive these days. Forty dollars for a movie, including concessions. One hundred dollars or more for dinner, including drinks. Tack on gas, valet or garage parking, and getting prepared with visits to the barber or hair salon, or a new outfit, and one date can add up to a decent utility…

When you realize that the person you are with is interested in someone else, there are truly only a few options. Some people convince themselves that their mate is merely having sex with someone else without having feelings attached. They believe that as long as they have the strings on the person’s heart, that is…

Recently, I received an email from a woman who said that she does not believe in washing her vagina because it is self-cleaning and using soaps can kill off all the good and healthy bacteria. Her theory is that the vagina is self-cleaning and insisted that her doctor told her not to wash it on…

There was a recent debate in one of my social media groups. This is the question that was posed: You’re dating someone, things get serious and the two of you start to talk about moving in together. However, your mate insists on getting a new bed because they refuse to sleep in a bed you had sex…

The Internet has done a lot of positive things for people over the past two-and-a-half decades. One of the biggest things has been expanding a person’s dating pool by at least a thousand times; possibly more. Dating sites geared toward every niche area of dating (race, sexual orientation, age, religion, location, etc.), social networks, and…

There are a lot of people in the world who are currently attached to someone they can’t stand for various reasons. They are no longer in love with the person, or never loved them at all. They are no longer attracted to the person, or they were never attracted to them at all. They can’t stand…

Not a week, or even day, goes by when I don’t receive emails on top of emails from attractive, successful and stable women who can’t seem to get a date to save their lives in their local area. Yet, many of them have men trying to pick them up on the Internet all day, every…

Dear Zane, I watch “a lot” of porn. I watch it on my phone, my tablet and my computer. I watch it on free sites and will sometimes purchase scenes from this bondage site. Some days when I am out of school, I’ll sit and watch it for hours while I constantly masturbate. The thing…

Sometimes I cringe when I see certain memes. Not all because some are mad funny. I am talking about the ones that were obviously created by bitter women and men who have made wrong decisions when it comes to love and decide to degrade or humiliate an entire gender. Like the one that asks for…

This past weekend, I was awakened at 3:30 a.m. by a couple arguing out in the middle of the street. There were a lot of expletives tossed back and forth between the two of them in about three or four rounds over a half-hour period. The gist of it was that she was demanding that…

I am absolutely stunned by the amount of people who find it acceptable to date, marry, impregnate, or simply slap skins with someone related to their exes. Recently, I heard about a man who was married for decades, had children and grandchildren with a woman, and then married her first cousin after their divorce. Yes,…

The other night, I was watching television and there was a segment about people disappearing out of relationships without a word. At first, it made me chuckle but then I realized that I have received a ton of emails from both women and men who had experienced something similar. A typical email might go something…

“Lust is the benefit of self at the expense of others. Love is the benefit of others at the expense of self.” That quote is how my book, Everything Fades Away, begins. The two main characters are both married and love their spouses like their next breaths, but the passion is no longer there. So,…

Let’s face it: a lot of women will live out 2015 and not go on a single date. Shocking statistics, but factual. I ask the question all the time to more than a million people and I am stunned to see that the majority of women have not been on a date in the recent…
