Sex Song of November

After all of the backlash that this newsletter, as well as the Sexperts program, has received, it is time we inform Dartmouth about the importance of talking about sex through the straight- forward Sex Song of the Month: Salt-N-Pepa’s “Let’s Talk About Sex.” A controversial hit song released in 1991 off of their Blacks’ Magic album, Salt-N-Pepa spread awareness about the positives and negatives of sex, practicing safe sex, and the censorship of sexuality at a time when AIDS was a huge deal.  “Let’s Talk About Sex” samples the Staple Singers’ “I’ll Take You There,” and its chorus is simple, yet extremely catchy: “Let’s talk about sex, baby/Let’s talk about you and me/ Let’s talk about all the good things/ And the bad things that may be.”  The original music video basically features couples hooking up, Salt rapping over the radio, and the well-known Salt- N-Pepa dance moves and style that defined the early 90s era.  The song was also re-made into “Let’s Talk About AIDS” as a radio promotional single and it focused on AIDS awareness.  Just when you initially thought a song entitled “Let’s Talk About Sex” was a raunchy, sexy, romp anthem, it ends up being a great way to spread the word on topics that seem to be swept under the rug in the media.  Although there has been improvement over the years in addressing sex, there are still people uninformed or uncomfortable with talking about it, and that is where sources like the Humpday Gazette and the Sexperts program come in to help.

 

Sex Song of September

In September 2010 on December 16, 2010 at 5:10 am

Due to the theme of this newsletter, it is no surprise that Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” comes up as the Sex Song of the Week.  “Like A Virgin” is just one of those songs from the mid-eighties that everybody knows and used to joke about when they were younger, and since Madonna IS a worldwide superstar, it would be a shame if we did not mention her claim to fame.  The lyrics allude to a lover who makes every experience feel like the first time, and are pretty self-explanatory: “I was beat incomplete.  I’d been had.  I was sad and blue.  But you made me feel.  Yeah you made me feel shiny and new.  Like a virgin.  Touched for the very first time.”  The video for the song shows Madonna prancing around in a wedding dress, along with her other iconic and cutting-edge fashions, and there even is an appearance by a real live lion(!).  Her 1984 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) performance of the hit is one of the most memorable in MTV’s history, being reenacted years later by herself, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Missy Elliot with the “kiss heard ‘round the world.”  The memory that now comes to my mind with “Like A Virgin” happens to be Keith Beukelaer’s rendition of the song at the Season Two auditions of American Idol, where Simon Cowell called him “the worst singer in the world.”  Well at least Madonna and Beukelaer have the world factor in common, and he tried to look sexy right?  That is really all that matters.
