Former Washington D.C. mayor Marion Barry will release a memoir called "Mayor for Life: The Incredible Story of Marion Barry Jr." on Tuesday.
Barry, who is currently serving on the D.C. Council, wrote the book with Omar Tyree. The Washington Post shared some excerpts. This one caught our attention. It is the story of the first time Barry used cocaine. He was with a woman who was apparently coming onto him:
"I was curious. If cocaine made this woman feel this hot, I wondered how it would make me feel...[It] felt like I had ejaculated. The cocaine was a powerful stimulant that went straight to my penis. I could see what this young woman was talking about. What happened next? I had sex with her.”
