Former Washington, D.C. Mayor and Councilman Marion Barry is known for his crack smoking ways. Less known, however, is how cocaine made him feel the first time he tried it.

On Tuesday, the world as we know it will change as the 336-paged “Mayor For Life: The Incredible Story of Maron Barry, Jr.” hits bookshelves. Think of it as an educational tool, probably best kept out of the classroom.

In it, according to a story published today by The Washington Post’s Mike DeBonis, Barry describes it as a sort of sexual burst. He wrote that trying cocaine made him as though he’d climaxed. “It felt like I had ejaculated,” he explained. “The cocaine was a powerful stimulant that went straight to my penis.”

He’d met a woman who was on the drug and had the hots for him. He said they later had sex.

Barry described his first cocaine experience as unforgettable: “From that point on, you chase that same high and sex that you felt the first time.”
