The books were still in distributors’ warehouses when Oprah hosted King, but thanks to viewer demand for the book, publisher Broadway Books released it a few weeks early.

You know how to take care of your home life: you have sex every Wednesday night and every Friday morning.
You go to the Hamptons in the summer and church on Sunday. King says the secrecy of it, the taboo nature, was part of the excitement.
It’s about, how do we address homosexuality in the black community?
King goes into great detail about the double life he led for years — sleeping with a guy he met at the gas station on the way home from his girlfriend’s house; picking up guys at churches and adult bookstores — and about the countless betrayals, and the guilt he eventually felt for hurting the women who loved him.
When pushed, King identifies as bisexual, even though he’d rather “just identify as ‘J.
L.'” — which seems contradictory, coming from someone who advocates clarity and honesty about sexual identity.
(He has a girlfriend, he says, who knows that he has sex with men.) “When you tell people you’re bisexual, the only thing they think is, ‘you have sex with men? “Right now in my community, two men having sex means gay,” he says.“I bet you if I hadn’t gotten caught I’d still be married today and living a double life,” he says.
