How Richard Pryor Gave Pam Grier a Cocaine-Encrusted Vagina

Look, I'm going to put as little distance between that headline and the actual anecdote as possible. In Pam Grier's new memoir Foxy: My Life in Three Acts (which is now a must-buy), she recounts how a conversation with her doctor led to her breakup with Richard Pryor. Stars, they are not just like us:

He said, "Pam, I want to tell you about an epidemic that's prevalent in Beverly Hills right now. It's a buildup of cocaine residue around the cervix and in the vagina. You have it. Are you doing drugs?"

"No," I said, astonished.

"Well, it's really dangerous," he went on. "Is your partner putting cocaine on his penis to sustain his erection?"

"No," I said, "not that I know of. It's not like he has a pile of cocaine next to the bed and he dips his penis in it before we have sex." I had a nauseating flash of one of Richard's famous lines: Even my dick has a cocaine jones.

"Are you sure he isn't doing it in the bathroom before he comes to bed?" the doctor asked.

"That's a possibility," I said. "You know, I am dating Richard Pryor."

"Oh, my God," he said. "We have a serious problem here. If he's not putting it on his skin directly, then it's worse because the coke is in his seminal fluid."

Also recounted in the anecdote, says Jezebel, is that "the doctor then asks her if her mouth went numb while performing oral sex on Pryor, which she says it did, and which he links to the Novocaine-like effects of cocaine."

The writers of Nurse Jackie, Grey's Anatomy, and Private Practice all just bolted upright, screaming, "How have we missed this?"

    Pam is a very fine woman. She knows how to make a Black man dick get hard. I like watching her movies on Netflix, etc.

    Since I am not into "white women" any, nor their men (including sons, husbands, brothers, etc.), I guess I should have said, fine Black woman!

  • […] Okay, if you’re not sitting down and/or you don’t have a nice calming beverage like some chamomile tea, please get a cup now. You most likely know Richard Pryor was one of the biggest coke heads in Hollywood… ever. The guy really liked and used a lot of the drug. Well, he also happened to put some of this coke on his… male member to retain his erection. But that is very bad for the woman he is having sex with. Just ask Pam Grier who used to date Pryor. If you want to read about her visit to her doctor, you may do so here. […]
