18 Sex Positive Pop Stars That Should Be On Everyone’s Playlist
Remember when “Like a Virgin” came out? THE SCANDAL! A young woman, singing openly about sex and being sexual and getting hers. Madonna burst onto the scene as a sex positive pop star, and she didn’t stop with singing about that very first time. She also arguably paved the way for the next crop of artists to tackle sex positivity. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with sex, liking sex, loving sex, and being unafraid to talk about it. And these 18 sex positive pop stars are making a name for themselves (and some really good music!) by putting it all out there.
Times have definitely changed, and lots of sex positive pop stars have burst through the door left open by Madonna and those who came before her (pun not intended but it stays). These artists showed us that you CAN be sexual and you CAN be open about it, and that there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! When we make sex and sexuality into something that should be hidden, we create a culture of shame around it, and that’s not helpful to anyone. So embrace your sexuality and make sure these sex positive pop stars are on regular rotation in your play lists. We’re not responsible for the good stuff that comes after (again, the pun stays).
Sex positive pop stars aren’t afraid to talk about sex. And that’s a good thing. Madonna rode the wave after “Like a Virgin” like a second orgasm, and we love her for it.
“Erotica”, “S.E.X.”, “Justify My Love” – Madonna may have started off as a virgin, but her catalog of sex songs is impressive. She even wrote a book about sex! She’s obviously considered the Queen of Pop, but we think she also deserves the crown as Queen of Sex. As Madonna has gotten older, she’s matured as an artist, but her songs are still full of sex positive messages and anthems. We love that she hasn’t changed, even though it’s been nearly forty years since she came onto the pop star scene. If nothing else, Madonna is also good for some pearl-clutching and eyebrow-raising, right?
