In the book Oprah: A Biography her sister Patricia says: “After becoming sexually promiscuous, Oprah devised another way to make money. She invited me over during the day while my mother was working.

"Her boyfriends were all much older than her, about 19 or in their early 20s. Whenever a guy arrived at our door, Oprah would give Popsicles to me and our younger brother Jeffrey and say, ‘You two go out on the porch and play now.’ Oprah then would go inside with her boyfriend... I didn’t’ find out what Oprah was doing until I was older and she showed me how she did ‘The Horse’-which is what she called the sex act.”
