Sex. It’s an interesting topic to talk about with friends. It also comes up a lot in movies and music videos. For a class I had last semester the unit had to do with gender and the media. For a project we had to focus how women were degraded in the media and music. It was a very interesting project. My group has to specifically focus on music videos and lyrics. Why am I talking about this months later you might ask. Well just recently Rihanna came out with a song called “Rude Boy.” In this song it is talking about how she wants to have sex with a guy later that night. She also talks about what she wants to do with him. To me this was a shocker. I thought she was more innocent than that, like she would never talk about sex in her music. It does become sad when a famous singer does eventually exploit sex in their lyrics because children listen to it. Then children will think it’s the norm and they sooner get involve with sex.
