Kenrya: Come here. Get off.
Erica: Okay, so y'all welcome to The Turn On. This is quickie number two. Hope y'all are missing us, but hopefully this is something to kind of ease those fears of Erica and Kenrya ain't coming back.
Kenrya: Yeah we definitely be back. We ain't going nowhere.
Erica: Yeah bitch, we coming back. Okay. For this quickie... Last quickie Kenrya and Erica interviewed each other. This time we're going to interview each other but, you are going to hear us answer the question as the other person. So does that make sense? You will hear Erica's voice, but Erica is answering the question as she thinks Kenrya would answer it.
Kenrya: It's going to be interesting.
Erica: And then, we'll allow Kenrya to clear it up. Okay? So, yeah.
Erica: Here it goes. First question Kenrya. Well Erica, this is Erica speaking to Kenrya. Erica, are you a morning or a night person?
Kenrya: Bitch, listen, I can't stay up past like 9:00/9:30. I be in the bed. If I call you after 9:30, you know it's something wrong. And then around 1:30 in the morning I wake up and I check email and I send you random texts and then I'm up at like what, 5:00/4:30 something stupid in the morning and then I do shit. I watch episodes of shows that I got sitting around. I respond to emails. I make lists of things. Sometimes I go work out and then I go to work at butt crack. Yeah. Well is there anything to clear up?
Erica: No, there's clear nothing to clear up. Okay, so this is Kenrya.
Kenrya: Kenrya are you a morning person or a night person?
Erica: I am a night person. I want to, I might wake up early, but I want to lay in bed. I want to just hear the birds chirping. I want to roll over and have sex with my beautiful partner. But the bulk of my work and activity gets done once my little baby goes to bed, once my little goes to bed, then I pile myself on my couch cross-legged and I am just diving in and getting the most of the work done and then in an effort to avoid bothering Erica instead of sending texts, I send her a million emails, because she knows Erica is going to check emails and they're not so intrusive. So I am a night person.
Kenrya: Yes, bitch.
Erica: We definitely won supermarket sweep.
Erica: Yes. Okay. Maybe not supermarket. What is love connection.
Kenrya: Yes. Answering the questions right. No, what's the one? The Dating game.
Erica: Where they hold up the thing. I keep seeing a woman with red hair and a bowl cut. It's probably wrong, but we talking about the same joint. All right. What'd you got for me?
Kenrya: Describe your ideal vacation. Kenrya.
Erica: Hot. Water. Laying around. Maybe learn something about Black people.
Kenrya: Only thing I would add is I need like several books.
Erica: On your phone.
Kenrya: That's it.
Erica: Okay Erica. Your favorite vacation.
Kenrya: Hot sand, water, paperback books because I like to have a real book in my hand. I do not fucking read on my phone and the kids are nowhere around. Lord have mercy.
Erica: Only thing I'd add is weed and liquor, but I mean damn same thing. Okay, Kenrya. Well okay. Erica, what did you want to be when you grow up?
Kenrya: Bitch Erica didn't know. Okay, well so yeah, I don't know. It could be something that allowed me to tell people what to do. I also like Black people stuff, so I would maybe go get a degree in Black people's stuff.
Erica: Which she did.
Kenrya: I think I just wanted it to be able to tell folks what to do to control some shit.
Erica: So when I was really little I wanted... This is Erica speaking as Erica. When I was really little I wanted to be the first Black female president.
Kenrya: Shut up.
Erica: That's only because I thought it was like I could tell niggas what to do. I didn't think about like the fact that you actually had to like be responsible and shit. I it was just like no, I tell you I want to and you do it.
Kenrya: You have to do it because I'm the president.
Erica: So this is young Kenrya speaking. What I wanted to be when I grew up... I want to be a writer because I love books so much. If I could be like my favorite author, Danielle steel or VC Andrews I would, but I want to tell stories and make people feel happy the way that books make me feel. If they could be representative of me as a Black woman and a baby Black Panther, that would be fantastic too.
Kenrya: So I didn't come to that till later.
Erica: Oh shit.
Kenrya: Yes. So when I was really little, I thought I was Whitney Houston.
Erica: So favorite fact about Kenrya. Kenrya was supposed to be auditioning for the gospel choir.
Kenrya: I was in the gospel... Oh that story.
Erica: She was supposed to be auditioning for the gospel choir and she went to her daddy and said... Oh I think you told this.
Kenrya: I wrote it in my book. It's in “How We Fight White Supremacy.”
Erica: She went to her daddy and said, "Daddy, I need you to listen to me sing two songs because I'm about to audition for choir and I need you to tell me, which song I should sing."
Kenrya: Oh my God.
Erica: The first song she sang was, "Do you mind if I stroke you up? I don't mind. Do you mind if I stroke you down, all through the night." So this bitch fucking thought she was going to stand in front of the school and sing Stroke You Up by Changing Faces featuring pedo R. Kelly.
Kenrya: Yeah, we didn't know yet.
Erica: What was the second song?
Kenrya: The second one was “At Your Best You Are Love.”
Erica: Yeah, some Aaliyah shit. Oh, this pedophile had a grip on our junior high years? Kenrya definitely thought she was gone... Every time I hear… What was the song you're hand bell choir sang? No, your choir. What was it?
Kenrya: “Ain't No Stopping Us Now.”
Erica: Every time I hear “At No Stopping Us Now” I think of Kenrya because every time that song come Kenrya would say, "our choir sang ‘Ain’t No Stopping Us Now.’”
Kenrya: I sang in this inspirational choir. It was run by the radio station WZAK. It was our Black station and we sang all over the state, so we used to open circuses. I sang with Total at Geauga Lake one time bitch. We sang with Mase and we sang with Hammer.
Kenrya: Yes. When he was, when he was doing gospel.
Erica: Hammer did gospel? Was this after pumps in a bump?
Kenrya: We opened for him on some stage. I sang all over in random places. We made a Christmas album, all of this. So I really wanted to be a singer when I was a kid, but I never thought I wanted to write and even when I began my career, I began as an editor and then when I decided to work for myself, I realized that most of the work at that point was in writing and that was what forced me really to start to write all the time.
Erica: Okay interesting. I was wrong as fuck. Your shoulder is real glistening.
Kenrya: Yeah. You know I be moisturized.
Kenrya: Ooh, okay. So Kenrya, which is better drunk sex or high sex?
Erica: Well, Erica, since this is Kenrya. I have a prescription card and so I appreciate, I enjoy going to my dispensary and talking to my dispensary-ologist about my particular needs and they may give me a good strain that increases my sensation and heightens my mental awareness.
Kenrya: Is that a thing?
Erica: I don't know, but that's some shit that you'd be saying. You'd be like, girl, I found a strain. It's called Scooby doo, H Y U and they say it. So yes. Kenrya believes that high sex is better than drunk sex.
Kenrya: Yeah, I like high sex and I do have a card because I have anxiety and it helps me tremendously with that and my insomnia and drunk sex, it's cool, but if I drink I get sleepy. So at least with that I can actually be awake, alert and shit.
Erica: All right.
Kenrya: Yeah, I'm an old lady when it comes out.
Erica: Okay Erica. Erica, what's better drunk sex or high sex?
Kenrya: Oh wait, I'm supposed to answer that.
Erica: Erica what's better drunk or high sex.
Kenrya: I like both the drunk and high sex, but I prefer to puff on some flower. Right. I don't know, I refer to smoke before I have sex, which I don't know. All right. Is that accurate?
Erica: You're wrong. So here's the thing, it's a little weird... I enjoy getting my weed from the weed man.
Kenrya: You like flower. Which I have asthma and that be fucking me up.
Erica: I'm not on some fancy this is what it does. I enjoy, "nigga what you got? Give me the bag." So high sex can be good. I really like drunk sex, the only problem is...
Kenrya: Do your head be floating away?
Erica: Here's a problem with drunk sex. Drunk sex, if you already drunk it be fucking with your gag reflex. Remember that story I told you about in New York? I'm about to tell y'all way too much about me. I'm out with a friend. We are just enjoying life. Had a great, great dinner. Went to this Italian restaurant. The food was so fucking good. We had like a bottle, two bottles of red wine. Which is great. We get back to the hotel. We're just into each other. Red wine flowing, pasta in our bellies. We start fucking. I'm hanging off the edge of the bed. I started giving dude head, I start deep throat and he started fucking my face deep throating it and I fucking gag. Literally I vomit red wine and pasta all over the place. It was so disgusting and what made it even funnier was how cool he was through the thing. I'm hanging off the side of the bed and he's fucking my face and I'm giving him deep throat. Then I vomit and I'm trying to sit up. So essentially I'd be vomited in the bed instead of on the floor and he's like, no, no, no, you're okay. Just chill. Just hang out. Just chill, just holding my head up. It was so horrible. Yeah, he was so calm the whole time. Then so I'm vomiting shit. So there's a fucking a pool of red wine and spaghetti on the floor.
Kenrya: That's why I always wear shoes in hotel rooms.
Erica: He gathers it up with sheets or some shit, I don't even fucking know and I go take a shower. I get out of the shower, this nigga laying in bed like so, “Oh yeah, you was on step three of deep throating me. You going to get back to that right." We continue to fuck.
Kenrya: Step three?
Erica: On another random note. He fucked up his knee playing basketball. So we were fucking and the scab tears apart. So he's fucking me. So we wake up in the morning, it's a fucking pile of red wine, vomit, fucking noodles in the corner and there was blood all across the sheet because as he was fucking me his scab opened. It was just disgusting.
Kenrya: I hope y'all left a big tip.
Erica: I was so embarrassed. I ran into the housekeeper on the floor. I left the hugest tip because I would just fucking light a match and burn everything down and she liked cleaned it and was so sweet. Dear lady at the hotel in New York, you are appreciated. You are appreciated. So all of the say I enjoy drunk sex. However, the logistics that come in mind with it makes it a little difficult. So I think I like high sex too. Cause when I'm high, I just get real sensual. I'm like, Oh look at the feel of your...
Kenrya: Yeah. For me, stuff is heightened.
Erica: Senses are heightened.
Kenrya: Versus when I'm drunk I feel like my head is floating away.
Erica: So Erica, what's your stripper name or porn name?
Kenrya: Erica. Kenrya what's your stripper or porn name?
Kenrya: Your stripper name is whatever your name is.
Erica: Yeah, right. It's like that meme. Your stripper name is your first name and your last name. Your hoe name is your first name and your last name because you a hoe.
Kenrya: That's right, nothing wrong with that. What is a song that describes your fucking style, not your love making style, but your fucking style? Kenrya.
Erica: Shake it fast. Shake it fast.
Kenrya: You know what makes this shit even funnier? My song for you was Danger. popping pussy on a handstand.
Erica: It's so problematic and what's fucked up is I'm not particularly athletic, but I will certainly be like, yo, I saw this shit and we're going to try and we're going to do it. Which brings me to my next question. Erica, Have you ever tried something in a porn and it failed epically?
Kenrya: I think I just told a story about deep throating on the side of the bed and vomiting. So yes I have.
Erica: This is Erica, the real Erica. Yes, that is true. As Kenrya, something in a porn that failed epically. No, only because I am Kenrya and I will fucking research and think the fuck out of anything before I try it. So if there something that I want to try, then I'm going to research it and then I'm going to practice and check the angles and the wind resistance and the direction of the moon shifts before I do it because it's going to work very well.
Kenrya: This is fucking accurate.
Kenrya: Good job.
Erica: Well, that wraps up quickie number two.
Kenrya: I hope you had as much fun as we did.
Erica: Erica and Kenrya, two hoes making it clap.
