Oprah Credits ‘Queen Sugar’ with Inspiring Her Sex Life

Oprah Winfrey is out there reminding folks that the over 50 crowd is still getting it in.

The mastermind behind the OWN network and producer of Ava DuVernay’s “Queen Sugar” said that the way the sex scenes were shot for the show definitely inspired her in real life.

“Her sex scenes look damn sexy,” Winfrey recently told Entertainment Weekly about the first time she and longtime friend Gayle King watched the episodes of the show that debuted in the fall.

“You want to be that person,” she said. “It hits a sensual nerve. He is unhooking her bra, and you’re like, woah! I’m like, ‘I’m going to get Stedman [Graham] to unhook my bra and see what happens. Put your hand in my panty hose and let’s see what happens.’”

Winfrey said there was one scene in the first season of “Queen Sugar”–with Timon Kyle Durrett, who picks up Dawn-Lyen Gardner to have sex by their poolthat really had her and King feeling a way.

“God, I wish somebody would pick me up like that,” King said. To which Winfrey replied laughing, ‘[Stedman’d] probably hurt his back and fall into the pool. And that would ruin the scene.”

Hilarious and cute, especially given that Winfrey and Graham really are the epitome of black love, having been together for three decades. It’s encouraging to see that their fire is still burning high after all those years.
