Kevin, I'm not offended by talk of sex. It's the way it's said. As with any way to communicate, how you say something matters as much as what you say. These songs are not offensive because they are about sex, they are offensive because of the way they talk about sex and the way they talk about women's bodies
. I am made to feel like a piece of meat when I hear fat bottomed girls or baby got back. Who wants to hear a song about how some one wants to use their body for sex like they aren't even there
? They may as well use a fleshlight for all that. I touch myself isn't a song about exploiting someone's body. It's a song about how a woman can masturbate without shame while she's thinking about her lover, AND The lyrics aren't vulgar. Are you getting it yet?
