Amber Rose has a new VH1 talk show and she’s been doing a good job of keeping up the level of “controversy,” probably better (in my opinion) than Kocktails with Khloe. She doesn’t shy away from topics and she’s definitely pushing her issues, like de-stigmatizing women’s sexuality with her Slut Walks, etc. As she talks more about how there should be equality between men and women for sexual acceptance, which is awesome. I kinda dig Amber, especially because she’s politicizing herself and not just being a pretty, sexy reality face. In her latest episode, Amber talks about how men view women who have varied sex lives, and how much internalized sexism there is when men get with women who are more experienced sexually. Some quotes:
She’s not going to count: “I’m 32-years-old, I’ve been around the block a few times. I’m not going to sit there and count. Especially all the times I said he could put the head in, then take it out, does that count? Because I used to be so good for that, I was the queen of that.”
Women should be allowed to have side pieces too: “First question: Why are men allowed to have mistresses, and why aren’t women allowed to have … whatever the f–k — there’s not even a word for it! We can’t even have, like — is it, like, ‘side d–k,’ right? I think we coined that.”
How men get praised for having mistresses: “We [women] are smart enough to not let the men find out, I feel like guys get so sloppy. Women have an intuition, if he lies we know. … Sometimes we’re in denial, like, ‘He wouldn’t do that to me,’ but at the same time we like, ‘Bitch, I know he did that.’”

So her number is really…no number. She doesn’t think it matters and doesn’t think it should matter to us, either. And, I agree. And it reminds me of when I watched What’s Your Number with my mom and almost died of shame (also, it was a HORRIBLY sexist movie. But also, mom).
