Julius Erving blames braces for conception of daughter

Julius Erving

Julius Erving has a new autobiography on the shelves and it is chalked full of revealing tidbits and nuggets like the one Richard Johnson of the New York Post noted.

In the autobiography entitled "Dr. J," the Philadelphia 76ers legend attributes the conception of daughter and tennis player Alexandra Stephenson to some hazardous dental wear.

“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.”

The female that Erving refers to in this excerpt is none other than former Sport Magazine writer Samantha Stephenson. She covered the 76ers at the time.
