14 Lyrics From Britney Spears' 'Glory' That Perfectly Describe Her Sexual Empowerment
Glory is finally here. After what seems like an extremely long wait for new music (especially to her biggest fans), Britney Spears released new music on Friday. The album definitely sounds and feels like Spears, but there is one thing that sets it apart from the rest of her musical masterpieces. If you've listened to each track closely, you've probably picked up on the fact that Spears' Glory lyrics are very sexually empowering. A good portion of the album focuses on sex, which just goes to show fans that the 34-year-old is not ashamed to embrace her sexual side.
It really is empowering to hear her opinions on sex — and basically, she likes it and wants more of it. Way too often women are shamed for expressing their sexuality. It's unfortunate that women are sometimes made to think sex is something they should hide and never discuss or voice through their craft. It's clear Spears doesn't believe that and Glory is her way of showing other women that it's totally fine to indulge in sex — and love every minute of it.
To prove just that, here are 14 lyrics from Spears' new album that are extremely sexual in a positive way.
1. "Put your love all over me/Here's my invitation, baby/Come feel my energy"
The fact that she is inviting someone over for sex in "Invitation" is empowering in itself.
2. "I know it might seem crazy/But I'ma put you in this blindfold/I just need you to trust me"
She also sings about taking control in the bedroom in "Invitation," which is refreshing.
3. "I just want you to make me move/Like it ain't a choice for you, like you got a job to do/Just want you to raise my roof/Something sensational (oh yeah)"
In the track "Make Me," Spears is all about being pleasured and wants it to be "sensational (oh yeah)."
4. "And make me oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh/And make me oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh"
Also in the song "Make Me," it sure sounds like Spears is saying she wants someone to make her moan.
5. "Sit you down, hop onto your pot of gold/You make me come alive"
All she wants is to find a "pot of gold" in the track "Private Show"...
6. "But I love how you go down/Head first and slide it out/Again and again"
"Spears isn't about being "Clumsy" in the bedroom and seems totally fine with someone going down on her.
7. "Keep on bumping into you/Bangin' all over this bedroom/Again and again"
Again in "Clumsy," she expresses how if you're going to have sex it's OK to do it all night or day long.
8. "Do you wanna come over? (Just let me know)/Do you wanna come over? (Yeah)"
"Do You Wanna Come Over?" is such a simple question, but it becomes more complex when it involves sex. Though, Spears shows it doesn't need to be complicated and it's fine for a woman to ask someone over when she wants.
9. "Sheets all on the floor just like an ocean/Building up your fortress like a mountain/Neighbors say we're causing a commotion/Like a slumber party"
Even though you're no longer a kid, it is still acceptable to have a "Slumber Party" and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
10. "You say we don't talk anymore but/I'm thinking we talk too much/Whenever we speak we fight so/Come talk to me with your touch"
Talking is great, but as Spears sings in "Love Me Down," body language can be just as satisfying.
11. "My baby gon' love me down/Gon' love me down, gon' love me down, yeah"
In "Love Me Down," it seems like Spears is saying that her lover is going to go down on her. Obviously, when someone loves someone else down it can be interpreted in several ways. Whatever she means here, she is ready to be loved sexually.
12. "Since I tasted you I got a craving/Shaking in the heat of the night/Oh, yeah, baby you got me misbehaving/And I don't even know what is right"
Shaking, cravings, and misbehaving all sounds like negative things, but Spears shows they are definitely positive in "Hard To Forget Ya."
13. "Better open up cause it feels much better/When we open up for each other"
There is more than one way to open up to someone, as "Spears illustrates in "Better."
14. "And don't get me wrong, but I'm tired of waiting/Say you don't wanna cross the line/But I'ma make you change your mind"
"Change Your Mind (No Seas Cortés)" is Spears' way of saying that sometimes a partner doesn't need to be polite when the other person is explicitly giving consent and saying, "I want you." Yes, it's totally fine for a woman to express her sexual wants and needs.
Thank you, Spears, for not only putting out a worthy album, but one that is sexually empowering.
