Transcript of SEX
By Emma Barwick, Jade Brown, Holly Dolan & Finnian Spencer
"derogatory towards women"
"hit of the summer"
(Hilben, C and Dodge, S, 2013)
Original version banned
Song jumped to number one > Publicity works?
Now included within the oxford dictionary...
Definition: "dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance" (Oxford University Press, 2013)
ARE MUSIC VIDEOS USED TO SELL SEX?
"A videotaped performance of a recorded popular song, usually accompanied by dancing and visual images interpreting the lyrics" (Oxford University Press, 2013)
Why does society either accept or slander it?
BUT when is it taken too far?
OK now he was close, tried to domesticate you
But you're an animal, baby, it's in your nature
Just let me liberate you
And that's why I'm gon' take a good girl
I know you want it
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me
You the hottest bitch in this place
I'll give you something big enough to tear your ass in two
He don't smack that ass and pull your hair like that
Not many women can refuse this pimpin'
I'm a nice guy, but don't get it if you get with me
Do it like it hurt, like it hurt
What you don't like work?

Not every song about sex is degrading
Sex has always been around, however advances in technology and the media have meant its more wide spread and easier to find!
IN EXTREME CIRCUMSTANCES
