Weirdly enough, I woke up this morning with Salt-N-Peppa's "Let's Talk About Sex" stuck in my head. While it mostly made me nostalgic for the '90s, with big pants and neon colors, it also reminded me how controversial that song was when it first came out. It was a song that had three women rapping about sex -- how awesome it is and how dangerous it can be. If you click on the link above it shows the video that even has a skeleton with the word AIDS written across it.
Ultimately it's a good reminder that sex is, at its core, about communication. Having honest discussions about sex is a lot less scary than not having them. Many women are afraid to have the conversation about birth control, orgasms, or condoms. By making it more acceptable to talk about it, we're doing everyone a favor. Too bad we're still promoting abstinence-only programming.
