Dec 22nd, 2011 // 5 Comments

Robin Thicke knows how to make us swoon — not only is he one of the year’s sharpest dressers, his silky falsetto on new album Love After War could melt butter. And after reading his latest interview with Essence — in which he waxes poetic on his 18 year relationship with Mission:Impossible actress Paula Patton and divulges into the jaw-dropping amount of orgasms he loves to give his lady —well, we’re left speechless. Jump below to find out just a smidge too much about Robin’s bedroom behavior with his missus, as well as his thoughts on loving black women and respecting black men, in our 7 Classy Quotes round-up below.


**On his music being the soundtrack to couples’ weddings and lovemaking sessions: “To be a part of your biggest days — you know your child being conceived or born, or you walking down the aisle — there’s really nothing sweeter. That’s the truth.”

**”What I realize about the difference between me and my peers — you know, Chris Brown and Drizzy Drake and all my musical peers — is that they haven’t been with the same woman for 18 years and I’ve been with a Black woman for 18 years. I’ve never dated a White woman. Don’t want to. I’ve never been on a date with a White woman.”


**On his strong relationship with Paula: “I didn’t have a great relationship with my mom and she didn’t have a great relationship with her dad and we became that for each other. She’s my mama and I’m her daddy. I even call her mama and she calls me daddy. We are that to each other.”

**”I just didn’t understand the Black experience in America and how different it is — and most White people can’t. You can’t understand it until you are with somebody every day and you have a child that you know is Black, you then understand that, wow, what a different experience Black people and in particular Black women have to go through.”

**On being misunderstood: “A lot of mainstream magazines, like SPIN and Rolling Stone, they still don’t get me. They can’t figure out how a funny guy with a dad on a sitcom can have a 90 percent Black female audience. It’s never happened before. I didn’t plan it that way. I just love the music and I love my wife and she is a strong Black woman, so if my wife doesn’t like it, how can the other Black women like it? If my wife approves of the song, I’m doing it.”

**On the social implication that black women should date white men: “There are so many good Black men out there that are hardworking, decent, and handsome, you know?…There are great Black men out there. There are only a few good White men — trust me. (Laughs) Good luck finding a good White man who understands your journey. I only have three White friends. I’ve got 20 Black male friends, who are all good men who take good care of their wives, and good care of their children.”

**And last but certainly not least, on pleasuring his wife: “I like to try to get her into double-digit orgasms as much as possible. It doesn’t happen all the time, but when I’ve got my mojo and my swag, it happens.”

Fan yourself off and read the full interview at Essence.

    Whoop-di-doo. A lot of white people have black friends. Only Robin Thicke would make a big deal about it.

    Why do people seem to find it necessary to denigrate one group of people in order to empower another? “Good luck finding a good white man?”

    I get that this guy has to pander to his audience, but come on. Can’t you say that black men are good men without saying white men are bad men?

    IMHO you’re lucky to find a good person of any race, I don’t discriminate, I think you all suck. :)

    Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to understand a lot about this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. I believe that you can do with a few p.c. to power the message house a bit, but instead of that, that is excellent blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.
