Gabrielle Union’s attempt to express the importance of equality in the bedroom amongst partners might have gone over people’s heads.
The L.A.’s Finest actress recently celebrated being married to her husband and former NBA champion Dwyane Wade for 7 years. Supporters of the couple were invited to join in the well-wishes when Gabrielle Union posted a loving tribute to Wade.
“Ain’t No Stoppin Us Now. 7 years and a lifetime to go,” she captioned her post on Instagram. “My best friend, the coolest homie, mentor and inspiration, my love, my husband. I 🖤 you [Dwyane Wade] Happy Anniversary baby. #WeAllWeGot.” Wade would then share his wife’s post on his Instagram Stories describing their length of marriage as “LIGHT.”
As they celebrate their anniversary, a past interview that features Gabrielle Union speaking on bedroom matters has resurfaced. During the promotional run for her book, We’re Going to Need More Wine, the actress appeared on Sway In The Morning to discuss subjects in the book. One of those includes reciprocity in the bedroom.
While speaking to Sway, she mentioned that women should have no problems in receiving the same pleasure they give to their men. But, as Jhene Aiko famously stated on the Omarion hit S’posed to Be, “he got to eat the [backside] like groceries.”
“While a lot of women do enjoy providing fellatio, for sure there needs to be some cunnilingus,” said Gabrielle Union. “And then ask him to eat your [backside].. If you’re going to be just offering [BJs] willy nilly there should be some pleasure you experience in return. It’s only fair.”
When asked about the idea that most men like their backsides munched, Gabrielle Union responded: “That’s what they’re saying, but that’s not what’s happening.”
Gabrielle Union’s apparent love for “grocery” eating set Twitter ablaze shortly after. Although Union never mentioned whether she utilizes that practice with Wade, many on social media spun her words and immediately insinuated that it “goes down.”
Joining the conversation was rapper Trick Daddy who excitedly said: “Praise God!” when he was alerted. Others on Twitter chimed in saying, “Well thanks to Twitter today I found out Gabrielle Union eats Dwyane Wade’s [groceries]. What would I do without this app?”
Gabrielle Union would soon find herself taking to Twitter to clarify her words. In a lengthy tweet, Union noted that she was speaking on the advice she gave in her book about bedroom expectations and judgment.
