Storyline

While cleaning the apartment, Florida finds a notebook titled "Sexual Behavior in the Ghetto" and thinks that its a sex manual. She then accuses JJ of bringing it in the apartment and yells at him for doing so. JJ denies it and when she shows it to James he has a totally different reaction and laughs it off thinking that it is JJ's way of learning about the birds and the bees. However, when James finds out that the book belongs to Thelma, he blows a gasket. Complicating things even more is the fact that she is dating a 21 year old college student. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Philip Michael Thomas ten years before Miami VICE
16 December 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Sex and the Evans Family" opens with JJ boasting about his dating prowess, out with a different girl every night. Florida is shocked to find an essay titled 'Sexual Behavior in the Ghetto,' and wants JJ to explain it to her: "I don't know, they can't explain it in here I sure can't!" JJ suggests that it could be Michael's since he does most of the reading in the family (Michael: "is it something on black unity?" Willona: "in a way!"). James gets home from work and isn't the least bit upset about JJ's interest in the opposite sex, as 'boys will be boys.' It's quite a different story when Thelma admits that the essay belongs to her 21 year old boyfriend Eddie Conroy, played by Philip Michael Thomas ten years before Miami VICE. A controversial episode that earned accolades for the show's early days.
