Sex

Does sex still sell?

I’m pretty young, but when I think back to the ‘90s, pretty much a huge chunk of my childhood, sex in music and film (but maybe not in literature) was pretty vague, as I’m sure it was for most people growing up before the new millennium. We weren’t hidden like we were living in the ‘50s, but as a child there was still the possibility that you would stay in the dark about what songs “really” meant. Not until you were a teenager did you have that epiphany, during which your ears would finally hear what was “really” being said to you, and only then did it connect to your brain.

But nowadays, everything is explicit. It’s such a risk to ride in a car with your elders listening to the radio because a commercial about condoms comes on and makes things awkward. And if that doesn’t, there’s always that song about making love faces and taking your panties off, breaking ‘ol girl’s back, and forcing things to fit and on and on. The lack of decorum has desensitized us.
