I have no doubt that you're going to be hearing a lot about this interview in the weeks to come.
Musician John Mayer has never been one to hold back on the private thoughts most people keep to themselves, but in a recent interview with Playboy Magazine the rocker may have surpassed the explicit details given in prior interviews regarding his sex life and past relationships.
An unashamed consumer of pornography and a vocal advocate of masturbation, Mayer steps into dangerous territory with a response when asked about whether or not he'd be open to dating black women in this interview.
MSNBC & FUSE contributor Toure' is already calling on Mayer to apologize via Twitter.
One twitter follower called the interview "a mortifying guide for things no one should ever say".
Here are a few excerpts below via Playboy Magazine:
MAYER: Someone asked me the other day, “What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?” And by the way, it’s sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a nigger pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, “I can’t really have a hood pass. I’ve never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, ‘We’re full.’"
PLAYBOY: It is true; a lot of rappers love you. You recorded with Common and Kanye West, played live with Jay-Z.
MAYER: What is being black? It’s making the most of your life, not taking a single moment for granted. Taking something that’s seen as a struggle and making it work for you, or you’ll die inside. Not to say that my struggle is like the collective struggle of black America. But maybe my struggle is similar to one black dude’s.
PLAYBOY: Do black women throw themselves at you?
MAYER: I don’t think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.
Mayer on pornography:
Internet pornography has absolutely changed my generation’s expectations. How could you be constantly synthesizing an orgasm based on dozens of shots? You’re looking for the one photo out of 100 you swear is going to be the one you finish to, and you still don’t finish. Twenty seconds ago you thought that photo was the hottest thing you ever saw, but you throw it back and continue your shot hunt and continue to make yourself late for work. How does that not affect the psychology of having a relationship with somebody? It’s got to.
PLAYBOY: You seem very fond of pornography.
MAYER: When I watch porn, if it’s not hot enough, I’ll make up backstories in my mind. My biggest dream is to write pornography.
Mayer on masturbation:
PLAYBOY: Masturbation for you is as good as sex?
MAYER: Absolutely, because during sex, I’m just going to run a filmstrip. I’m still masturbating. That’s what you do when you’re 30, 31, 32. This is my problem now: Rather than meet somebody new, I would rather go home and replay the amazing experiences I’ve already had.
PLAYBOY: You’d rather jerk off to an ex-girlfriend than meet someone new?
MAYER: Yeah. What that explains is that I’m more comfortable in my imagination than I am in actual human discovery. The best days of my life are when I’ve dreamed about a sexual encounter with someone I’ve already been with. When that happens, I cannot lay off myself.
And if you didn't think that was too much information about Mayer's private "activities" he also mentions he'd rather rim Harvey Levin of TMZ than kiss him. And all along I thought the Trey Songz interview with Honey Magazine was a bit much. Now I'm just waiting for Mayer to finally admit he's bisexual.
