Lets Talk About Sex



The song talks about safe sex, the positive and negative sides of sex and the censorship that sex had around that time in American mainstream media. The song was later included in the trio's Greatest Hits (2000) album. It samples "I'll Take You There" by the Staple Singers. An alternate version of the song entitled "Let's Talk About AIDS" was released to radio on a promotional single and included as a B-side on various singles for the song. The lyrics were changed to more directly address the spread of AIDS and HIV.




Lets Talk About Sex



The song received favorable reviews from many music critics. Steve Huey from AllMusic called it a "playful safe-sex anthem".[1] Larry Flick from Billboard stated that the hot rap divas "show no sign of cooling off with this spicy hip-hopper that pokes fun at people with inhibitions about sex." He remarked that "cheeky rhymes and charming demeanors make this yet another multiformat winner."[2] DeVaney and Clark from Cashbox commented, "Although they have changed their style from their original hip-hop image to commercial/R&B/Rap, the sound of this single is quite catchy and will probably take R&B by storm." They also concluded, "This single, by far, is one of the most commercial rap cuts of the year."[3]


David Thigpen from Entertainment Weekly described it as "an articulate, funny, and danceable primer on sex and the single flygirl that hit male-dominated hip-hop where it hurt."[4] A reviewer from Melody Maker wrote, "It's one of the most uncompromising safe sex raps ever written. The song also recoginises the biological differences between males and females, and the serious messages are balanced by a cheeky, never ribald, sense of humour. Their concern is genuine. It is, as they say, largely about understanding."[5] Kim France from Spin felt that "Let's Talk About Sex" "packs a wallop with the kind of sassy, seducto-humor the two previous Salt-N-Pepa records were chock full of."[6]


To analyse how the media reports on sexual behaviour in animals other than humans, we surveyed1 48 newspaper, magazine and Internet articles written about 11 papers (see 'Science and sensationalism' for examples). We excluded blogs that presented the opinion of the blog author, and any article published on sites with obvious pro- or anti-gay, lesbian or transgender agendas. We found consistent patterns in how sexual-behaviour research is misrepresented and propose suggestions for how it might be avoided.


Concerns about responsible media coverage have been raised with respect to studies in humans of race and IQ. In research into sexual behaviour in animals other than humans, consistently polarized reporting is the norm.


Ultimately, any one study can tell us about the sexual behaviour of only the species under investigation. It might also provide an avenue for exploration in humans, and for phylogenetic analyses of the evolution of sexual behaviour. But simplistic extrapolation, by scientists or by the media, to 'explanations for' human heterosexual, gay, lesbian or transgender behaviour can only stand in the way of these worthy and exciting goals.


Addison was on one, and she had every right to be. It made sense that she was so adamant about getting this sex-ed video out and educating kids, and the attitude that everyone had in relation to it irked her.


But they ended up with two of those high school students with issues that needed to be addressed, and it was a lesson on the importance of women's health and how little society knows about it at the same time.


Of course, in an hour, that hit home how we fail women with limited education on their own bodies and health while attacking them at every turn would also do its diligence in teaching teens and the adults like Owen about female pleasure.


Mika and Jules were the dynamic duo of educating the kids on sex, from teaching them about the clitoris and how to properly stimulate it to teaching the guys that real, enjoyable sex for partners is NOT like freaking porn.


When he made that quip about not being accustomed to putting a condom on something as SMALL as a banana, it was apparent that those two would be hitting up an on-call room to work out some sexual frustration.


Putting the warring married couple in front of a roomful of teenagers to talk about sex, erogenous zones, and consent felt absurd. Owen's gruff, aggressive-sounding bit about consent was funny, though.


And Teddy publically dragging her husband in front of some kids and the world once the video went viral, talking about how he doesn't do foreplay and erogenous zones and just goes right for, as Monica Gellar would say, SEVEN, made me laugh out loud.


The video is definitely going to go viral with all of the overt sex talk and dancing. I'm delighted that it only took three episodes to see Harry Shum Jr dancing and shirtless. The way we keep winning this season, you guys! Bless.


Mer seemed protective and on edge about the others inadvertently testing her daughter, but it was something she couldn't stay mad about, and it was better to know so they could get ahead of things and help Zola.


And Meredith knows exactly what Simone is facing. She was the perfect person to talk to Simone and give her advice on handling the situation, including not telling her grandmother that Denise was dead.


My heart aches for her, but she handles things so well. The Mer and Simone scenes were easily the best of the hour. It was like Mer was talking to her younger self, a bit of full-circle action happening, especially since Simone was our introductory character to the inters, like Mer.


The sales assistant holds the Lily Allen collab up: a sleek red and silver clitoral vibrator. He asks us to put our finger gently over the toy, air vibrations and suction at different levels of intensity pull us in. As we slowly move our fingers on and off we are told that working in this place is about sexual and mental health, about increasing sex positivity, and about making people feel safe and empowered. We are told that learning how to approach people is key, about how being sensitive to discomfort, shyness, and anxiety about new sexual practices is all part of their everyday role. This sales assistant has many identities: educator, pleasure advocate, sensitive/sensitivity guide, and activist for health and well-being through sexual practice.


We finish by speaking about the importance of collaborations such as the Lily Allen one for breaking taboos and stigmas with her #IMASTURBATE campaign, for creating awareness about the orgasm and masturbation gap, for allowing people to rethink what sexual self-determination should look and feel like. We leave the store and a few blocks later; we see a poster on the window of another sex shop advertising for a sex educator to join their team. These are spaces brimming over with anticipation, joy, and pleasure but also education, affirmation, advocacy, and activism. We need more of such spaces in a world of cascading retractions. Spaces that allow that which is private and that which is public to work in concert.


One in six respondents (17%) reported speaking with their health care provider about their sexual health in the past two years. Of those who had talked with their health care provider, three in five (60%) initiated the conversation themselves, and 40% reported that their health care provider brought up the topic. The majority of those who had spoken with their health care provider (88%) reported that they felt comfortable discussing their sexual health, regardless of who initiated the conversation.


While it is clear that sex is important for many older adults, it is not often discussed. The majority of adults age 65 to 80 indicated that sex is an important part of a romantic relationship at any age and important to their quality of life, though only about half of those in a relationship reported being sexually active.


It is notable that nearly one in five men in this age group reported taking medications or supplements to improve sexual function in the past two years. Some of these older adults may be taking prescription medications, but others may be taking supplements which are not required to be reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration. Given potential side effects and drug interactions, providers should ask patients about supplement use.
