Is True Love Real? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


Hey Conversationers, this conversation is continuing due to last weeks “no show“.

The question still remains, “Is True Love Real?” Are you living it? Do you believe it’s possible? Are you striving to attain it?

Some people do experience clearly magical connections very early on in a relationship that predict long-term commitment and devotion. The intense drive of sexual attraction is part of every new relationship but there are additional feelings when true, long-lasting love is a possibility.

The sense of being alive is felt simultaneously and in every cell in the body. The heart feels as if it is opening, the mind is engaged, the senses are awakened, and a feeling of transcendence often emerges. Many new couples start out believing they are having some of these experiences, only to find out that they somehow didn’t keep happening. Those are understandable disappointments.

But every partnership has a better chance when the people within them feel early on that their connection is real and won’t go away. True love doesn’t give in to the typical challenges that end most relationships. It actually grows stronger when it is threatened.

Join me tonight at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via blog talk radio, for my commentary, “Is True Love a Reality?”

Professor who donates sperm in city bathrooms has sired 22 kids


On a busy night last week at the Target on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, Ari Nagel, 40, emerged from the men’s bathroom looking a little flushed and quite pleased with himself.

It’s better when it’s fresh,” he told them.

“It” is Nagel’s semen, and it’s in demand. The 6-foot-2 CUNY Kingsborough math professor has served as a sperm donor for dozens of locals, siring 22 kids over the past 12 years with 18 women of various backgrounds.

For lesbian couples and single ladies looking to have a baby without the expense of going through a sperm bank (which can run in the thousands of dollars), he’s the No. 1 dad.

This isn’t time-consuming, and I’m doing it anyway,” he says of his hands-on hobby. “It’s very easy for me to do.”

His oldest child, now 12, was conceived with a woman he was in a committed relationship with, but all of his offspring since, he says, have resulted from his donations.

About half the time, he provides his seed the old-fashioned way. Sometimes, a lesbian looking to conceive will have her partner in the bed for moral support while she and Nagel engage in intercourse.

She’s never slept with a guy before, so the partner’s in bed, holding her hand,” Nagel explains. “Sometimes, it could be a little painful, then after a few times, they’re comfortable to do it on their own.”

Other times, he supplies his goods in a cup, which he prefers.

He often uses public bathrooms, like those at Target and at Starbucks shops, to procure his samples and hand them off to ovulating women.

You don’t want to do it in one where people are knocking,” he notes.

He will also offer his services in his home near Downtown Brooklyn, but mama wannabes are often more comfortable meeting in public.

Once a location is chosen, Nagel will go into the bathroom, pleasure himself while watching porn on his iPhone — “You can’t connect to Target Wi-Fi if you’re connecting to a porn site, so I use my cell service,” he says — and ejaculate into an Instead Soft cup, a type of menstrual cup“.

He then delivers the specimen to the woman, who goes into the ladies’ restroom and inserts it into her cervix.

The prolific professor is often successful, which he attributes to a high sperm count: 85 million per milliliter.

It’s off the charts,” he boasts. “The clinic said they’ve never seen anything like it.”
(The Mayo Clinic says normal sperm density ranges from 15 million to greater than 200 million sperm per milliliter.)

Nagel made his first foray into professional baby-making eight years ago with a friend — a single, straight Jewish woman in her late 30s and living on the Upper West Side.

Women who have used Nagel’s services — which he provides for free — say his good looks, personality and high sperm count are a draw.

He’s a lot of fun to be around, he loves people, he’s outgoing, and he’s gorgeous,” says Tiffany Harrison, 41, of New Jersey, who with her wife, Yvonne, has a toddler daughter, Zoe, sired by Nagel.

As for his own motivations, the big daddy insists he just likes spreading his seed.

Officer who shot Philando Castile found not guilty on all counts


Jeronimo Yanez, the Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop last year, was found not guilty of second-degree manslaughter Friday.

He also was acquitted of two counts of intentional discharge of firearm that endangers safety.

Castile’s death garnered widespread attention — and sparked nationwide protests over the use of force by police — after his girlfriend broadcast the shooting’s aftermath on Facebook Live.

Several members of the Castile family screamed profanities and cried after the verdict was announced, despite warnings from the judge that everyone in the courtroom should remain composed.

“Let me go!” yelled Castile’s mother, Valerie.

The families of Castile and Yanez were escorted out of separate courtroom exits. At least 13 officers were present in the small courtroom.

Outside court, Valerie Castile said she was disappointed in the state of Minnesota:

“Because nowhere in the world do you die from being honest and telling the truth “The system continues to fail black people,” she said. “My son loved this city and this city killed my son and the murderer gets away! Are you kidding me right now?”

“We’re not evolving as a civilization, we’re devolving. We’re going back down to 1969. What is it going to take?”

Black lives don’t matter, not here in the united snakes of America.

Officials in St. Anthony, Minn., where Yanez worked as a police officer, said he will not return to the police department from leave after the trial. They said they have decided “the public will be best served if Officer Yanez is no longer a police officer in our city.”

BREAKING: Jury in Bill Cosby Trial Deadlocked


NORRISTOWN, PA – MAY 24: Bill Cosby departs the Montgomery County Courthouse after a preliminary hearing.

The jury in the Bill Cosby sexual assault case sent word to the judge that they are hopelessly deadlocked on day 4 of deliberations, meaning they can not unanimously reach a verdict on three counts. The judge ordered the jury to continue deliberations, saying it is too early to quit.

The panel of five women and seven men are sequestered at a Norristown, Pa. hotel, about 300 miles away from their homes in Allegheny County. The trial was moved from Allegheny County to Norristown because of concerns about pretrial publicity.

NORRISTOWN, PA – JUNE 6: Andrea Constand walks to the courtroom for the trial of actor Bill Cosby on sexual assault charges at the Montgomery County Courthouse on June 6, 2017 in Norristown, Pennsylvania. Constand, a former Temple University employee, alleges that the entertainer drugged and molested her in 2004 at his home in suburban Philadelphia.

The 79-year-old comedian faces 10 years in prison if he is convicted of plying Andrea Constandt with drugs and sexually assaulting her in 2004. The former Temple University women’s basketball coach is among 10 women who accuse the television mogul of rape.

In riveting testimony Constand claimed Cosby gave her three blue pills that made her feel dizzy. She said she passed out and when she awakened her clothes were in disarray.

But Cosby denied giving Constand a date rape drug. He said he only wanted to make her “feel comfortable” so he gave her Benadryl.

“I wanted her to be comfortable and relaxed and be able to go to sleep after our necking session,” Cosby said in an earlier deposition.

Cosby’s defense rested on Monday after calling only one witness to testify on Cosby’s behalf. The defense later claimed they had a witness who was not permitted to testify.

In a sign of confidence, Cosby shouted his Fat Albert phrase “Hey, hey, hey!” when departing the courthouse on Tuesday.

Cosby’s wife Camille Cosby accompanied her husband to court on Monday. She has remained loyal to the Cosby Show star throughout his legal ordeal.

In minor related news, the White House confirmed Cosby will not be stripped of his Presidential Medal of Freedom.
