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.

Are people really offended by his self absorbed comments? I mean, who hasn’t already been able to see that he's an arrogant kid with an okay amount of talent who's headed down a very shallow, lonely road. Will anyone honestly be shocked to hear of him commiting suicide, or drug addictions, relationship issues & over all depression in the coming years? He can keep his apology because based on his comments alone I can see that there's a good chance he'll end up with all the white pussy he can get and still turn out to be a miserable disconnected mess.

I always thought John was moderately talented, and "lucked" up on a few catchy tunes, but he has always come off as arrogant and self absorbed......his views are like the high school jock who thinks its cool to say off the cuff sh*t. The term Douche bag fits him perfectly.....just tired...and i think black women will give a collective sigh of relief knowing they are safe from his lame a** pink peen!(His stroke is probably as lame, off putting and annoying as he is)

I can't really say that he should be sorry. He is honest about who, what he is which is a sad person that will never find true fulfillment in life. I do sometimes feel some empathy for those like John Mayer because they seem to always are on the endless search for short-term fulfillment when their long-term happiness is unrealistic in expectations.

On the realistic tip about him and black women (and men), honestly most white guys (famous are not) doesn't see much value in connecting with black folks. Although he comes from Canada, where they are suppose to be passe about color, ect., well you've found a Canadian that doesn't.

Potentially controversial indeed. I know that John Mayer is a musician but that's all I know about him. I'm not impressed at all. Something must be up with him.

I couldn't care less about his sexual habits. What he does in his private life is his business.

I think he crossed the line as far as the racial comments are concerned. I don't appreciate his use of derogatory terms. He may have intended no harm, but surely he is aware of the risk of saying the things he said. BTW I can't imagine black women throwing themselves at him.

Giving him the benifit of the doubt, maybe he isn't racist at heart, but I think he has landed himself in hot water. Time will tell.

Wow. At first I thought he was kind of strange but now I won't be able to listen to him any more.

I don't think John's view's are necessarily racist but the way he expressed them is another matter. Personally I don't think anyone should ever be criticized for saying they PREFER to date or be intimately involved with people of their own race. Perhaps that's all John was trying to say in a juvenal unsophisticated kind of way. Who has the right to tell a Black person they should date White people if they aren't into them? Well the reverse is also true. But HOW you say that says a lot about whether you simply have a preference for your own or your actually racist.

I've always thought Mayer a pretty decent musician, especially in these times of such mediocrity. I don't find anything he said offensive...because most of it doesn't even make sense. He sounds like a guy that was trying to come off as ultra cool and edgy, but ended up sounding just stupid and douchey. I don't think he's racist, just a young, entitled, white douchebag.

John remarked in his twitter-pology that he didn't intend to be offensive or arrogant or a shock jock. Well, I think that's exactly what he accomplished. The saddest result of any incident like this (whether it's with a "star" or not) is when your behavior remains the same and no lesson is learned. Does anyone care? Maybe not. But you can only hope.
