Passionista Principle: “I thought I would be Sheena, Queen of the Jungle as a little girl.” ~Pam Grier
Amongst the shocking revelations in the book? Richard Pryor‘s cocaine use while they were dating was noted by her gynecologist. Apparently if a man is a cocaine addict the drug is ejaculated within his sperm and can hurt a woman’s vagina. Ouch. Pam Grier asked Richard Pryor to wear a condom. When Pryor refused their relationship was over. Wow.
