Bow Wow recently stopped by Hollywood Unlocked and opened up about his past relationships and sex life. Before all was said and done, he talked about bedding Erica Mena, Ciara, Kim Kardashian, Karrine Steffans and talked about losing his virginity to model Esther Baxter at 16 years old.
“We was both learning,” he said about sleeping with Ciara.
“Nah, that definitely didn’t happen,” said Bow, when someone suggested that Mena would overpower him sexually.
In regards to Kim: “I never dated outside my race before,” said the former “106 & Park Host.” “This comes with a lot.”
Bow also said that he’s been intimate with just about all of the women he’s been seen with in public. “Any woman you’ve seen me with, except for Angela [Simmons], then yes, [I slept with her].” he claimed.
Of course, the 30-year-old is not the first celebrity to talk about sexual escapades. Just a few years ago, Nick Cannon didn’t have a problem talking about his past sex life while married to Mariah Carey, and he got a lot of attention for it.
During that interview, the TV host and businessman revealed that he and Carey waited until marriage before they were intimate and afterward had sex to the singer’s music. Nick also talked about sleeping with Kim Kardashian, Christina Milian, Selita Ebanks and Nicole Scherzinger in the past as well.
Plus, if you recall, Future caused a stir when he talked about the sex life he and his ex Ciara shared. It was right around the time Ciara’s husband Russell Wilson said God told him to wait until marriage before being intimate with her.
“God didn’t tell me [that],” said Future on HuffPost Live. “God told me something else. We prayed afterwards, though. After we did it, we prayed.”
On top of that, in 2016 on “The Wendy Williams Show,” Game revealed that he had sex with Blac Chyna and Kim Kardashian.
Then in November of this year, Sean Kingston told the world that he and Serena Williams slept together, right after he was asked who was the most famous person he ever had sex with.
But it’s not only male celebrities who share intimate details about their sex life, some of the women do it too.
K. Michelle has talked openly about her dating past and dropped names like Idris Elba, NBA star J.R. Smith, former NFL player Chad Johnson and talked about the size of his anatomy in an interview. Plus, former video vixen Karrine Steffans has practically made a career out of revealing sexual secrets.
There have also been a number of women who’ve met a celebrity and snapped a selfie of herself with that person, just to let everyone know they slept together.
It happened to celebs such as Meek Mill, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Chris Brown and New York Giant Ezekiel Elliott just to name a few.

Sometimes when celebrities reveal a sexual secret they’ve received some backlash.
Like Cannon, who said Carey was extremely upset that he talked about sleeping with other women on the radio.
“She doesn’t care when I talk about our sex life because our sex life is amazing,” he explained. “[But when I] bring up other people’s names, she’s like, ‘Why would you even do that?’ … And I understand why, especially [for] a woman on the level of my wife. So I got in a lot of trouble, and I gotta stop talking about my past.”
Sean Kingston got blasted for sharing too much as well, and a lot of people accused him of lying about being with Serena.
“Sean Kingston is somewhere in this world claiming Serena Williams as a conquest,” someone tweeted. “Satan is working today.”
“Sean Kingston is saying that he had a thing with Serena Williams,” wrote someone else. “If that’s true, Serena, sis, what were you doing?”
This begs the question: What happened to the rule “Don’t Kiss and Tell?”
According to Dr. Tiffanie Henry, a relationship expert who has a private practice in Fayetteville, Ga., the “Don’t Kiss and Tell” rule may not be used as much these days, but it still should apply — especially if you’re in a relationship.
“I think that rule is still alive. I think you have to look at the individual,” she told Atlantic Black Star. “I think real men, real gentlemen don’t kiss and tell or talk about past loves or lovers or relationships and in general, when you’re spending your time talking about past loves and past lovers, it’s quite possible that you don’t have much of a relationship going on right now.”
Dr. Tiffanie also said that sharing intimate details about your sexual past has a lot to do with crafting an image.
“In terms of the psychology behind it, for some folks, it’s a very basic narcissistic need for people to see you as significant, important and relevant enough to have been in a relationship with the said person” explained Dr. Tiffanie, who also runs a site called My Intimate Details. “But the sad part is, you’re talking about them, they’re not talking about you and their past relationships. That means that they’ve moved on and you haven’t. You’re still stuck in the past.”
With celebrities like Bow Wow, however, it may be more difficult for them to keep quiet about their sexual past.
“For celebrities, it is a little bit different,” noted Dr. Tiffanie. “Because they’re asked specific questions, given a specific platform and their lives have become public knowledge. So I may date five, 10 different guys and nobody knows or cares about who they are. For celebrities, they date this person and it’s documented all over social media … So people feel like they have a right to ask specific questions.”
But I think that we as people, as human beings, also have the right to say ‘No comment,'” she added. “‘I don’t have any comment on this person or their life now.’”
In addition, Dr. Tiffanie said a person who shares intimate details with others run the risk of chasing future mates away.
“Who you slept with is not important to me, and for most women it makes you pause in going forward with the relationship, because are you going to talk about this when we’re done? Because if that’s the case, I don’t want to be with you,” she explained.
