92% of Top Ten Billboard Songs Are About Sex

Via Scoop.itinterlinc
Get your heads out of the gutters, America’s musicians. We always knew that with all your nipple-showing and lesbian-kissing and crotch-grabbing that you’re obsessed with sex, and today we have the science to back it up …

Show original


Finally some science to back up what we already knew: mainstream music is rife with sexual content. The original study is very academic (yawn), but the results are something everyone in student ministry needs to read.

Here are some of our other recent posts about the content of mainstream music and what you can do about it.

The bleepin’ VMAs

    It is amazing that they use the term “reproductive” when that has nothing to do with what those songs are about.
