I Am Not A Hoe is an easy read and will have you laughing even if the content causes you to blush.
Native New Yorker, Cheryl “Cherry Bomb” Winley was born and raised in one of the most affluent counties in the eastern most part of Long Island. The progeny of scholarly and dignified parents, Cherry’s childhood not only mimicked richness and decadence it encompassed balance and an avid love of the English language. However, being gifted with a passion for English and poetry wasn’t her only reward; Cherry’s parents would reward her every action with monetary treats. By the age of 15, Cherry’s lifestyle would consist of limitless credit cards, fine dining, cars, and shopping and more shopping. The excessive gratification from her parents would in turn increase Cherry’s desires and by the age of 16 she would meet her first real boyfriend, a drug dealer, who would change the suburban girl into a lady and a hustler’s wife.
Fast money, fast living, diamonds, designer brands and fancy cars; Cherry’s years as a young adult would be a ‘glamorous life’. Everyone knew her; she was on the arms of the who’s who, traveled the world, and partied with the best of the best. It was also during these years that Cherry would craft a certain strategy and set of skills to attract a specific type of man that would fulfill her ever-growing insatiable desires. “As my tastes grew, the type of man that dated me had to as well – he had to be one up from the last”, Cherry comments. Yet, no matter how ‘sponsored’ Cherry was, something was missing – she would spend her late twenties in search of that “missing piece”. Cherry would become an entrepreneur several times, even a homeowner; nonetheless, being spoiled would always find its way back to her. As luck would have it, it would be another boyfriend who would change the mindset of this ‘professional girlfriend’ and put her on another journey.
After living in Dubai and seeing true wealth, Cherry decided to return back to the one place that gave her balance and clarity – New York. “One day I woke up and wanted the only thing I’ve never really possessed, my independence”, says Cherry, and that day she figured out how to get it. “Come hell, high water, or high heels” is Cherry’s favorite motto which reflects her innate determination to never be without and has led her to figuring out that the one thing that proves to be most profitable is herself and why not sell it! After being asked a million times, how do you get men to give you money? Cherry decided to pen her strategy, thus, her authorial debut I Am Not a Hoe – a handbook that details Cherry’s best possession; her game, her time, and her attention and as Iceberg Slim would say “the game is to be sold not told”.
Get to know Cherry:
What was the inspiration behind the I Am Not A Hoe handbook?
The thing that inspired me most and attributed to my writing the “I am not a hoe” handbook would definitely be my disgust for the behaviors exhibited by young women today. In my opinion nine out of ten women are hoes and they are in denial about that. They participate in loose behaviors and promiscuous lifestyles, but try to convince themselves as well as others that they are “good girls”.
What’s your opinion of Good girls?
Good girls are the minority, and unfortunately in today’s society not the popular choice.
When writing the hand book was your intention to encourage being a hoe?
In writing my handbook never did I intend to encourage or discourage the behavior, I just shined a light on a taboo subject. My book is a tutorial on different types of hoes. I put in black and white what so many women are determined to deny. I document the thoughts that men have had for years, but only rappers are bold enough to say.
I give points of reference to first establish if the reader is indeed a hoe, and if so, additional questions help identify exactly what type of hoe they are. My book is a blueprint of sorts, realizing that you are a hoe, guidance on getting your act together, getting structured and getting some money. .
With that being said most peoples first question is are you promoting prostitution?
my response… “YES !”. But it’s deeper than that, I endorse a woman entertaining men for money, as that is productive and strategic versus a woman laying with one man after another with no other goal outside of an orgasm or even worse…..love.
What type of feedback are you getting from women?
So far on my journey of enlightening hoes I’ve been met with a surprising amount of women that agree with me, and have in turn accepted and professed, “I am a Hoe”.
What is your definition of the word Hoe?
The word Hoe is funny to me. The urban dictionary defines a hoe as a loose promiscuous woman.
I agree that those characteristics are definitely part of the meaning, but don’t encompass the word in its entirety. I believe that being a hoe is a lifestyle that surpasses sex or sexual acts. It is the way one carries themselves, the company you keep, the places you frequent, your style of dress, even your vernacular.
What can both men and women gain from reading this handbook? What are the take always?
I feel that both men and women can learn from my book. Men will hopefully stop referring to women in such a derogatory manner and take responsibility for their role in womens’ decline in morality. Most women validate themselves through the eyes of their fathers and lovers, so how you see her and treat her is in turn what she will often become.
I strongly feel as if I wrote my handbook from the whispers of men as you walk by. It is cumulative opinions and shared stories from the barbershops. It is a glimpse into the minds of men, their unspoken truths. I allow women to see themselves how most men see us.
I hope that my book will educate women on how they are being viewed. I wrote it to take some of the power out of the word Hoe, and I pray that readers take from it what they need, if nothing more than a laugh.
What impact do you intend to make in literature?
I hope to make an impact on closed minded and judgmental people and provide a voice for women everywhere that are tired of being ashamed of their lifestyles. In my writing I say the things people think, but fear saying and give taboo subjects a platform.
That’s my politically correct answer. My Cherry Bomb truth is: I want to help these Hoes get this money, and the game is to be sold not told. So for a small fee I can help them get like me. Lol nah really the first answer…… I guess.
