When exploring the idea of preference when it comes to swirling, I’ve had a hunch that physical preference for a particular phenotype is often tied to positive emotions and interactions in childhood. Oh; and I’m sure there’s some research-y stuff to support that too. So I posed the question, and here’s what I got:
There were a few black celebrity women that I found to be attractive when I was a kid. Donna Summer, the lone black girl Solid Gold dancer. There were a few black girls that were in my mom's Girl Scout troop that grew up into attractive women when in High School. But I never acted on my attraction to black women until I joined the Navy. That was 1989 I haven't been with any other woman since.
I was at church and saw this stunning BLACK WOMAN. I had to approach her because she stole my heart. The next few years were a whirlwind of adventure and ectasy. By the time I realized what happened she had already turned me out. I was 19.
I was particularly excited a few years ago when one of my students tried to set me up with his mother...she was from the Congo...

Middle school, when a cute girl was praising my drawing ability and when I met Raven as a kid and I thought she was cute. My dad was playing music for an event she was at.
Assuming Penny from Good Times doesn't count, then it would be the 7th grade. Mrs. Maddox's pre-algebra class. Sitting one seat over and one seat up from me. Drop dead gorgeous. Even as a 12 year old. Gabrielle Union.
Yes…it was THE Gabrielle Union.
