Everyone should feel comfortable being open about their bodies, sex, and sensuality. Sex can be a very personal thing, but contrary to what society may tell women, it’s definitely nothing to hide or be ashamed of. Luckily, the sex positive movement is encouraging more healthy and transparent dialogue about sex in its many facets. And music also has a big impact on how we view sexuality. Just take Lil Kim's debut album, Hard Core, which dropped 22 years ago. For a lot of listeners, it was the first time that they heard a woman delivering raunchy, unapologetic songs about sex. And in the years since, there have been plenty of other women in the world of Hip Hop and R&B who have followed Kim’s lead in being straight up about what they want sexually, when they want it, and how they want it done.
Through being being open and honest about sex, the artists on the list below have made music with the goal of having listeners feeling super confident with themselves and their sexual desires. These sex positive songs will hopefully make you want to be more open in your own life, and go after what you want sexually — no matter if society tells you to be ashamed.
