I’d love to see some radical songs about people sexually enjoying each other, rather than who is the aggressor and who is the giver. That whole dynamic of someone being hunter and someone else being prey is really unhealthy in my view. And what about songs for 3 people having sex? My man and I have a girlfriend and we refer to our sexual encounters with her as “hot Tetris.” There is no top and bottom.

I want more songs about vulnerability, I want them from people, men especially, who you wouldn’t expect it from. And without any of the posturing or platitudes that make it more acceptable to their masculine sensibilities. Yes please to this!
