NBA legend Julius Erving writes in a new autobiography, Dr. J, that his daughter, women’s tennis player Alexandra Stevenson, may not have been born if braces had not prevented her mother from giving him oral sex.
According to Page Six’s Richard Johnson, who obtained a copy of the book, an excerpt reads:
“She becomes someone who helps me unwind if I’m feeling high-strung or stressed. I can drive over and spend a relaxing evening that might even include oral sex,” Erving writes. “I can only remember one time that we actually had intercourse, and that was because she had just gotten this new orthodontia to straighten her teeth. With wire and gleaming metal bristling in her mouth, oral sex was not an option.”
Stevenson is the daughter of Erving and former Philadelphia sportswriter Samantha Stevenson. Much was made about Stevenson’s father when she made it to the Wimbledon semifinals in 1999. Erving and Stevenson have started to reconcile. Before that process started, Erving had reportedly only met her once though he had supported her financially.
