J.L. King, New York Times best selling author of “On the Down Low: A Journey into the Lives of ‘Straight’ Black Men Who Sleep with Men” is the guest this episode of The GeoGee Experience. Yes, this is the same J. L. King who whipped up a hornet’s nest of publicity with his book "On the Down Low: A Journey into the Lives of ‘Straight’ Black Men Who Sleep with Men". THE DOWNLOW BROTHER>>>>>>> Many openly display wedding rings, and some of their backseats sport baby seats and other heterosexual indicators that they have women and children in their lives. They come from walks of life far removed from the seedy character they play. To name a few, they're from financial, academic, religious, service, and medical industries. They're someone's next door neighbor, possible doctor, or confidant. One thing that is always for sure, hidden in the wings of obscurity is a wife or a girlfriend. R&B star R. Kelly penned the 1995 hit “Down Low (Nobody Has to Know). The lyrics went on to spawn the catch phrase that has come to reference what starts as heterosexual black men who have sex with men but still identify as straight instead of gay or bisexual. Downlow Brothers The major fallout from these men's escapades is they do not expose their secret to their wives or girlfriends, magnifying the opportunity for transmittal of STD's through their secrecy. It's cheating on a whole different, dangerous, and destructive level. It's all on this episode.
