Anderson Cooper Discusses Mother’s Love of Oral Sex, For Some Reason (Video)

Happy New Year, everybody

There’s really no warning we could put on this that would be adequate, so here we go: Anderson Cooper used a year-end roundtable to disclose that his mother was a fan of cunnilingus at 85.

For a year-in-review segment, Cooper asked sex advice columnist Dan Savage about his favorite scandal in the news this year. Savage went with the Rob Ford saga, quipping, “I love a good cunnilingus joke on the evening news.”

Cooper took advantage of the moment to tell panelists, “My mom once wrote a romance memoir about men she had dated-and I use that term loosely-and she described one guy she was currently dating — my mom was 85 at the time — as the Nijinsky of cunnilingus. And she made me proofread the book.”

Unfortunately, no one cued the James Earl Jones voiceover: “THIS is CNN.”
