Our memory is a little fuzzy, but some might recall comedian Martin Lawrence infamously said “you ain’t gotta be gay to suck a n*gga’s dick” but now, R&B singer Tank is somehow giving weight to that theory. In a recent media appearance, the “Maybe I Deserve” star essentially said that a man getting oral sex from another man doesn’t necessarily make him gay.
Sitting down with Angela Yee for her Lip Service podcast, Tank countered a point made by the show’s co-hosts, Stephanie Santiago, GiGi Maguire, and Lore’l, that a man who lied twice isn’t necessarily a liar. The example Tank used, however, seemingly came out of left field for some.
He brought up the possibility that if a man who performed oral sex once or twice on a man, it doesn’t highlight that being gay is his lifestyle, which was the point he attempted to make. Tank also commented on all the chatter in a video that one Twitter user shared with their timeline.
Hop to the 2:50-minute mark of the video below to see the breakdown.
On Twitter, Tank’s scenario has folks scratching their heads and wondering about Tank’s sexuality and the merits of his question, which of course is his business as he eloquently stated above.
Peep out the reactions from the debate below.

The same dudes pressed over this, calling him gay are the same ones that ask lesbians— Efe 🦋 (@pikachuyo_) October 23, 2019
“How do you know you’re gay if you haven’t tried dick?”
If anything, Tank is more confident that he ISN’T gay compared to all you repressed ass niggas https://t.co/jstLuWCSpM
y'all calling Tank Gay cause he said a man experimenting and still being straight, just like women do all the time, is completely fine is wild lmao. homophobia leaking out heavy.— cynical optimist (@fonzwolf) October 23, 2019
Y’all always tell lesbians they need to “try dick first” to see if they “really” gay so why is it an issue for a straight man to explore his sexuality, which is what Tank was saying in that interview....— khendoll jenner🤸🏾♀️ (@_petrichorrrr) October 22, 2019
