92% of Hit Songs Are About Sex


This is a quick post about the Top Ten Billboard hit songs in 2009. Researchers examined all of the songs that made the top ten list and discovered that 92% of them contained “reproductive messages.” In fact, they discovered the songs that were on the list longer contained more messages about sexual related things. Check out the research here.

In another study, researchers found that teenagers who listened to songs with degrading sexual messages, were likely to engage in sexual activities before marriage.

Music is a powerful influence, and when it is coupled with sexual messages, it can have heavy influences in their sexual decisions.

  1. I used to listen to a lot more “club/dance” music like David Guetta, ATB. Not exactly Top 40 music, but still internationally known and very sexualized. Suffice it to say jamming along to Rihanna’s “S&M” doesn’t help a man maintain pure thoughts… Some music you just have to turn off.

    1. Thanks for commenting! I agree. We must figure out what we want our life to look like and then do the things that will ensure that happens. I think we all know music is powerful.

      An interesting experiment would be to listen to only 1 type of music (for example, music with only sexual type lyrics) for a week and everyday write down your thoughts. The following week listen to music with the opposing lyrics/values and write down your thoughts. I think by the end it will be clear the effect music has on us.
