Stewie: (singing) I want to have intercourse with you. Uh-oh-yeah. Intercourse with you.

Brian: (singing) Relations.

Stewie: Intercourse with you-oo-oo-whoo! Right?

Brian: Yeah, no, great, that sounds good.

Stewie: All right, groovy, groovy. Now, is there a shorter word for intercourse?

Let's face it, there's only one thing nearly every living person has on his mind, so it honestly shouldn't come as that much of surprise that most songs you're ever going to hear over the course of your entire life are gonna be about or closely related to that one thing. People seem to really like hearing about it, and people seem to equally really like singing about it. All sorts of euphemisms are used: making love, getting lucky, goin' downtown, hitting the jackpot, throwing the hot dog in the hallway, putting the key in the ignition, thrashing the thistle, scuba diving in the oasis, plugging the pudding portal, the ringing of Persian ankle bells, inserting the credit card into the slot machine, slamming the space jam in the dimensional pocket, knockin' boots. No matter what it is or where it's coming from, they're all talking about the same thing and they all get the job done.

In case you prove unable to infer what is being discussed, we are of course talking about sex.

Songs of this type can go several ways:

  1. Be subtle. Bury what you're talking about in Double Entendres and Unusual Euphemisms, with dance being the most common one. Others include; loving, working, eating, or teaching, as well as words associated with them.
  2. Use Lyrical Dissonance. Moral Guardians expect sexy songs to sound a certain way, usually slow and seductive. Have a sprightly, folk, or pop song style tempo instead.
  3. If your lines are short a couple of syllables, just add "Tonight", "Yeah", or "Baby".
  4. Use lots of sung moaning sounds.
  5. If all else fails, then to hell with subtlety and just blatantly talk about sex anyway. You'll be surprised what you can get away with.

In Japan the euphemism "This and That" is popular enough to get its own trope page. For certain cases, see Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory and Innocent Innuendo. And for other cases, see also Fan Service and Playing to The Fetishes. For examples that are sung by groups of friends over a few beers rather than performed by professionals, see Bawdy Song.

Sometimes, Intercourse with You gets kinky. Well, kinkier.

Examples by genre:


Pop Edit

  • "Your Body is a Wonderland" by John Mayer. It's a little disconcerting to hear it on the kind of radio stations that appear to be standard issue for the dentist's office. Once again: cheery music lets you get away with a lot.
    • In this vein, we also have Canadian pop group B4-4's single, "Get Down". It's best to see it in its full glory.
    • There was an interview with John Mayer where he claimed to want to write a song called "Girl, I Wanna Fuck You, Girl", with lyrics like "There will be no remorse, we are gonna have intercourse."
  • "Afternoon Delight" (Performed by The Starland Vocal Band.)
    • "Sky rockets in flight! Afternoon delight!" Harmless elevator music, until you actually listen to the lyics.
    • Word of God stated that it was actually about Washington, D.C. restaurant Clyde's. Now whether one believes that or not...
  • Billy Joel's "Only the Good Die Young" is really about wanting to take a girl's cherry. Particularly with lyrics like: "Come out Virginia, don't let me wait, you Catholic girls start much too late."
  • Cyndi Lauper's "She Bop" is about as thinly veiled as possible, though it refers to a solo rather than a duet. As it were.
  • Ashlee Simpson's "(You Make Me Wanna) La La"; its presence in Elite Beat Agents somehow didn't earn the game a Teen rating. The images made the theme even more obvious.
  • Glamm featuring Pete Burns - "Sex Drive", obviously.
    • Dead Or Alive (the band Pete was the frontman of for many years) used this a lot. As noted above, "You Spin Me Round" is about sex. The songs on their first album were actually much more blatant than their later 80s releases: "What I Want", "You Make Me Wanna", "Far Too Hard" (which includes the lyric "Men should never make it with their own reflection"), and a cover of "That's The Way I Like It". They started getting blatant again in the 90s.
    • There was a more explicit cover of YSMR, with the line "open up your fucking mouth, watch out here I cum".
  • "Love Sex Magic" by Ciara and Justin Timberlake.
  • Michael Jackson's "Rock With You"

  "I wanna rock with you! (All night!)".

  • George Michael's (in)famous first solo hit, "I Want Your Sex".
    • But it, like "Let's Talk About Sex", is also a subversion. George was actually writing an anthem dedicated to monogamy and The Power of Love. From the lyrics: "Sex is something we should do, sex is something for me and you. [...] Sex is best when it's one on one."
    • His song "Faith" (later covered by Limp Bizkit), is about a man who turns down sex because he's "waiting for something more". Another is "Fast Love".
  • Guess what the Spice Girls' "2 Become 1" was really about. There's even a line about using a condom thrown in there for good measure!

  "Wanna make love to ya baby".

    • Amusingly, only the line "Boys and girls go good together" was edited for the teenybopper set, replaced with "Love will bring us back together".
      • The Other Wiki reckons that line was actually changed for being homophobic (although really it's more heteronormative). When the album was recorded, it wasn't known how big a gay following the group would get.
    • Similarly, "Wannabe"'s line "Zig-A-Zig-Ahhh" is actually not a bad piece of onomatopoeia. According to the band, that's an allusion to a cigarette. Something often enjoyed post-coital.
  • Taylor Swift's "Sparks Fly" is quite likely this, what with such lyrics as "You touch me once and it's really something. You find I'm even better than you imagined I would be" and the entirety of the bridge ("I'll run my fingers through your hair and watch the lights go wild. Just keep on keeping your eyes on me, it's just wrong enough to make it feel right and lead me up the staircase. Won't you whisper soft and slow, I'm captivated by you baby like a fireworks show"). This coming from someone who's often bashed for being a Purity Sue...
  • The Divinyls' "I Touch Myself" is, like "She Bop", about a "solo effort". One Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode had Buffy reveal she spent most of one summer in her room listening to it, and then admitting she had no idea what it meant at the time (or at least claims not to have known). Incidentally, the band insists "Touch Myself" is not about masturbation, but touching other parts of yourself in a loving way.
    • Another Divinyls example: "Pleasure and Pain".
  • Madonna, of course, had a lot of these in her early career.
    • About half of the Bedtime Stories album is straight-up porn music. Complete with heavy breathing.
    • "Where Life Begins" is six minutes of sneaky and not-so-sneaky innuendo about cunnilingus.
    • Let's not forget "Justify My Love", which is also Nightmare Fuel, especially the video.
    • And of course the outrageously literal Erotica.
    • "Get Into the Groove" (which 'groove' did you want me to get into?) is thinly disguised using the 'dance' motif:

 I'm tired of dancing here all by myself

Tonight I wanna dance with someone else

  • "Lady Marmalade" is about a Creole prostitute from New Orleans. And the chorus is "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir?" which almost means "Would you like to sleep with me tonight?" (strictly speaking, the French would be "voulez-vous vous coucher...") with the nuance of being in formal language.
  • Britney Spears' "If U Seek Amy." The actual lyrics are a bit nonsensical, but phonetically not terribly subtle (which explains why a lot of radio versions either remove the "ek" from "If You Seek" to dull the sexual meaning, or, in the case of the UK, completely remove the "If You Seek" part and rename the song "Amy"). The song made the news thanks to the PTC catching on. Not only did they spell it out (so to speak) for a surprising number of people who wouldn't have otherwise noticed, it seems all of Britney's not-hidden lyrics about sex are okay. Nice one, PTC.
    • The video starts and ends with a faux newscast that makes it as obvious as possible. That newscaster is actually a poor imitation of Megyn Kelly, Fox News talking head and also one of those who felt compelled to point out the phonetic pun.
    • Besides the point that the majority of her songs on her fourth, fifth and seventh albums were extremely sexual (With titles like Get Naked and Touch Of My Hand featured in there tracklists). It would be better to list the ones which aren't sexual (if any exist at all) then are (a case can be made that Britney's music has gotten better as it's gotten trashier, but your mileage may greatly vary).
  • It's surprising how many people still don't realize "Who Let The Dogs Out" by Baha Men is about sex.
  • Jason Mraz's "Geek in the Pink": I can save you from unoriginal dum-dums/Who wouldn't care if you com...plete them or not. Also, think about "in the pink" for a second.
    • See also "Butterfly": "I went home, and I thought, 'I'm going to see if I can't write a song that a young woman would want to model her shoes to.'"
    • Also by Mraz, "Clockwatching". Hell, I could write out every lyric in the song and none of it would be unnecessary for an example.
  • * NSYNC's "Digital Getdown" wasn't fooling anyone at all about its subject matter. It didn't help that when they performed it live, one of the members would lick the stage.
  • "Let's Make a Night to Remember" by Bryan Adams is rather blunt, even for a song in this category.
    • And he loves pointing out that "Summer of 69" isn't about a year.
      • Although the song's co-writer Jim Vallance said it is, and Adams just improvised the "me and my baby in a 69" line at the end of song. Still, that line's part of the song now, so yeah...
  • "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)" by Samantha Fox.
  • Barry Manilow has quite a few songs that fall under this trope, ranging from the relatively subtle "Let's Take All Night To Say Goodbye" to the blatantly obvious "I Wanna Do It With You".
  • Hilary Duff has a song called "I Wanna Blow You Up." The first chorus starts with "I wanna blow you....up." and the bridge consists of "I wanna blow you, blow you, blow you, blow you....up." Not terribly subtle.
    • That song is actually from the movie War, Inc., where Duff's character was supposed to be a parody of the sexy teenybopper kind of performer.
  • Miranda Cosgrove's Sayonara: Doing a sexy purr for a Title Drop, the implications of the bridge, oh boy. Doubles as What Do You Mean It's for Kids?.
  • Sandra Cretu's In the Heat of the Night. The lyrics imply the narrator's willing and total surrender in losing her innocence from the man's seduction with a strong touch of Deal with the Devil ("You lose your heart and sell your soul, it's much too late to leave the trade"); Or just simply, The Oldest Profession.
    • Not surprising considering about 2/3 of her role on her ex-husband's Enigma project consisted of heavy breathing. Also the lyrics to "Mea Culpa" are pretty blatant, not to mention French.
  • The Backstreet Boys' first album had "If You Want it To Be Good Girl (Get Yourself a Bad Boy)". What, praytell, does "it" mean?
    • They later regretted the song; the label wanted it to be their first American single, but the band rebelled.
    • Their later Black and Blue album had the even less subtle "Shining Star," which went so far as to include lyrics like "Cause you know what to do to turn me on."
  • Jordan Knight's "Give it to You" features a ton of Double Entendre, including "anyone can make you sweat, but I can keep you wet."
  • One-Hit Wonder Boy Band React's "Let's Go All The Way".
  • EYC - This Thing Called Love. Another one-hit wonder boy band.
  • Shakira's "Las de las Intuicion/Pure Intuition":

  Let us be one and let's begin / A mistake that turns into perfection / I want to see you sliding in my underworld (underwear?) / This time I plan to let you win / Be a victim of my own invention / Let us be one and let's begin, once and for all/

 'Cmon Angel, My Heart's on fire

Don't deny, your man's desire

You'd be a fool to stop this time

Spread your wings and let me come inside!

 Want you to make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world

Like I’m the only one that you’ll ever love

Like I’m the only one who knows your heart

Only girl in the world…

Like I’m the only one that’s in command

Cuz I’m the only one who understands how to make you feel like a man

    • Her single "What's My Name" is similarly blatant, but one line in particular stands out...

  Every door you enter I will let you in

    • And even more blatant is the song "S&M", which is about... well... bondage.
  • Avril Lavigne's "Things I'll Never Say" is about marriage... and all its perks. 'If I could say what I want to say, I'd say I want to blow you... away. Be with you every night. Am I squeezing you too tight? If I could say what I want to see, I want to see you go down... on one knee.'
  • "For Your Entertainment" by Adam Lambert. Just... that song.
    • Also "Fever" and "Strut" both by Adam Lambert are good examples. So is "Glamorize".
  • She Wants Revenge loves this. Almost-public masturbation with a popsicle? Blatant and shameless groping of someone else's SO? Getting the crap beaten out of you by Shirley Manson? And that's just two songs...
    • Sister deserves special mention.
  • A-ha's song "I call your name" is about a young couple's simple marriage ceremony, followed by a very passionate honeymoon.

  When she moved her hips and swayed in my direction / I thought we could make it yet and beat the isolation / but in that gentle dark... man, we tore ourselves apart!

 Love me, love me, it's the way you love me

Touch me, touch me, it's the way you touch me

Fuck me, fuck me, it's the way you fuck me

The way you love me baby has got me goin' crazy

    • And don't forget this little gem:

 Yeah, that's me, that's where you wanna be

I got the kind of pussy that'll keep you off the streets

  • Enrique Iglesias' single, aptly titled "Tonight (I'm Fucking You)"
  • The Pointer Sisters' "I'm So Excited" and "Slow Hand".
  • The Shirelles' "Will You Love Me Tomorrow".
    • "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" was written by fifteen-year-old Carole King.
  • In an interesting subversion, Heart's "All I Wanna Do (Is Make Love To You)" is also about a one night stand - this time, for the purposes of conception.
  • Sneaker Pimps. We have: "Roll On", "Sick", "Bloodsport" and "The Fuel", to start with.
  • IAMX has: "The Alternative", "Spit It Out", "My Secret Friend", "Kiss + Swallow", "Sailor", "Mercy", "You Stick It In Me", "Skin Vision", "Missile" and "Heatwave", and that's not even all of them.
  • Stacey Q. - "We Connect"(read: copulate or have intercourse)
  • Tira Black - "Push it In"
  • Maggie Reilly - "Everytime We Touch" (not Cascada's version):

 A shooting star fell down to earth

Lightning cracked the sky

Something weird is happening

Something I can't deny

It's some kind of magic

Running through my brain

Feel I'm in heaven

Or going insane

  • Whigfield - "When I Think Of You"

 I need your body tonight

I need you inside me tonight

When I think of you, I feel like flying

 I go Ooh, Ooh

You go Ah, Ah

La la la la

Ah la la la

I can la la la la la la

I wanna wanna wanna

Get get get what I want, don't stop

Gimme gimme gimme what'cha got got

'Cause I can't wait wait wait

Any more more more more

Don't even talk about the consequence

'Cause right now your the only thing that's making any sense to me

    • And "4ever".

 C'mon baby, we ain't gonna live forever

Lemme show you all the things that we could do

You know you wanna be together,

And I wanna spend the night with you

Yeah yeah, with you-ou, yeah yeah

So come with me tonight,

We can make the night last forever

  • O-Town's "We Fit Together"
  • JC Chasez's "All Day Long I Dream About Sex" (With You!).
    • Most of his album "Schizophrenic" is like this. He's also responsible for the *NSYNC entry above.
  • Anyone ever listen closely to "I Wanna Love You Forever" by Jessica Simpson? The Other Wiki calls it "a darkly bittersweet love ballad", but I have to question that because of lines like:

 Pour yourself all over me

And I'll cherish every drop here on my knees

    • and:

 I'm breathing for the next second

I can feel you...loving me!

  • Exposé's "Point of No Return"(a euphemism for orgasm) and "Come and Go with Me"(you can guess the meaning).
  • Capsule's "I Just Want to XXX You," a rather blunt song about hooking up at a club, complete with Sound Effect Bleep.
  • Veronica Maggio's "Jag Kommer" (transl: I'm Coming). It's pretty much Exactly What It Says on the Tin. Made more obvious in the official video using overflowing champagne and other cues, while at the same time providing a lot of running for the alternate interpretation.

 Jag kommer, jag kommer, jag kommer, jag kommer - Jag är nästan där

(I'm coming, I'm coming, I'm coming, I'm coming - I'm almost there)

    • Also:

 Du och jag nu

Du snälla vänta, vänta, håll ut

(You and me now

You, please wait, wait, hold on)

  • Jackson Browne, although sometimes characterized as being on the lite side, has a few rather suggestive (or blatant, depending on your mindset) songs.
    • "Rosie" has a guy resorting to his hand when the moves he makes on a groupie fail.
    • "Redneck Friend" is his nickname for his penis in one song and he really wants to introduce the girl to his friend, who is an "eleven on a scale of ten".
    • "You Love the Thunder" has some pretty direct references.
    • Then there is "These Times You've Come". Does that one REALLY need an explanation?
    • And on his first album, "Under the Falling Sky" was very thinly veiled.
  • Ian Anderson, leader of Jethro Tull, is quite the dirty old sod. "Kissing Willie", "Velvet Green", "Bungle in the Jungle", portions of "Thick as a Brick" and the list goes on. And, let's not forget "Aqualung", which does not have any direct sex in it, but is the story of a homeless pedophile watching little girls on a playground!
    • The character Aqualung also gets mentioned on the song Cross-Eyed Mary, which is about a child prostitute.
  • Katy Perry's "Peacock". Among other lyrics:

 "Oh my God, no exaggeration

Boy, all this time was worth the waiting

I just shed a tear, I am so unprepared

You've got the finest architexture

End of the rainbow looking treasure

Such a sight to see, and it's all for me"

    • To be honest, the most obvious part of the song would definitely be the chorus:

  "I wanna see your Peacock-cock-cock, your peacock-cock-cock."

    • "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" uses the phrase "had a ménage à trois," or a threesome.
  • Simon Curtis has a song called "Flesh" which is very obviously about kinky sex. In fact a lot of his songs are this.
  • Vanessa Amorosi "A Little Love", "My House", "Touch Me" and "Off On My Kiss".
  • Kylie Minogue: “Getting Closer”, “Too Much Of A Good Thing”, "Let’s Get To It”, “Do You Dare”, “Surrender”, “Dangerous Game”, “Password”, “Physical”, “More More More”, “Give It To Me”, “Come Into My World”, “Boy”, “No Better Love”, “Secret (Take You Home)”, “Sweet Music”, “After Dark”, “Cruise Control”, “Slo Motion”, “Like A Drug”, “Nu-dit-ty”, “All The Lovers”, “Closer”, “Too Much”, “Cupid Boy”
  • Dannii Minogue: “Baby Love”, “True Lovers”, “This Is It”, “Tonight’s Temptation”, “Lucky Tonight”, “Free Your Love”, “All I Wanna Do”, “Take Me Inside”, “Put The Needle On It”, “Creep”, “Hey! (So What)”, “Don’t Wanna Lose This Feeling”, “Come And Get It”, “Sex Dice”, “Trip”, “Touch Me Like That”
  • Argentinian group Soda Stereo had "Juego de Seducción" (where the narrator tells his girlfriend that they should have some kinky roleplay to spice up their sex lives) and "Persiana Americana" (about a peeping tom watching his hot neighbor through the window)
  • Gwen Stefani has "Bubble Pop Electric", a song about lovemaking inside a car.
  • Prince (before he found religion...again) reveled in this trope: It seemed like every one of his albums would contain at least one song full of paper-thin innuendo ("Let's Pretend We're Married", "Little Red Corvette", "Delirious", "Cream") and one song that pretty much stated "This is a song about fucking" ("Head", "Darling Nikki", "Lady Cab Driver", "Do Me", "Baby", "Erotic City"). And occasionally one that would be half-innuendo, half blatant description ("International Lover").
    • "Weird Al" Yankovic's pastiche of Prince's style, "Wanna Be UR Lover", drops whatever subtlety Prince may have had and just runs with it. ("I hope I'm not bein' forward, but do you mind if I chew on your butt?") The song also contains, hands down, THE most raunchy line ever sung by Weird Al. ("I wanna be your Krakatoa, let my lava flow all over you.")
      • And though few notice it, he has another not-quite-as-raunchy line in the song "One More Minute" about masturbation - "I'm stranded all alone in the gas station of love/ And I have to use the self-service pumps."
  • It wasn't until years later, the name of the 1960s group "Lovin' Spoonful" really got away with murder given the times, since it's basically referring to the amount of semen in an ejaculation.
    • Well, people at the time probably thought they were just singing about freebasing heroin.
    • See Also: 10CC. No, really.
  • "Love to Love You Baby" by Donna Summer. That song is sex. Summer literally mimics an orgasm as she sings. And then there's "Hot Stuff".
  • "Half The Way" by Crystal Gayle. You could, if you worked on it for a while, come up with a somewhat innocent interpretation of the song, but with lyrics like "Fill me up to the top/ and don't stop/ till i'm overflowing", it's pretty clear that the singer prefers to be left hot and sloppy, and her guy just isn't quite measuring up.


Metal Edit

 I'm gonna Slide It In, right to the top!

Slide It In, ain't never gonna stop!!

      • Also "Still of the Night".
    • Bullet Boys' "Smooth Up (In Ya)"
    • Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me"
      • Anything by Def Leppard!
      • Taylor Swift did a collaboration concert on CMT's Crossroads, with her singing this song.
    • Warrant's "Cherry Pie"
    • Any given song by Poison, except for their Power Ballads. The most obvious include "Talk Dirty To Me" and "I Hate Every Bone in Your Body But Mine".
    • Motley Crue. Just about everything by them that isn't about drugs.
    • Krokus: (Tonight) Long Stick Goes Boom.
  • While many listeners wonder about Rammstein, as not everyone speaks German, the song "Bück Dich" means "bend over" in German, which pretty much settles what that song is about. The band was once charged with public lewdness over their stage performance of that song.
    • Even better, the same song contains the line "dein Gesicht ist mir egal", which translates roughly to "your face doesn't matter" or "I don't care about your face." Then there's "Zwitter", about a guy who becomes a hermaphrodite by absorbing a woman into him somehow, and remarks often on his love for himself, with a line that translates to "I am not even disheartened then When someone tells me "fuck yourself"". Finally, their newest album includes "Frühling in Paris (Springtime in Paris)", which is about the main character having oral sex with a prostitute.
    • A couple more that immediately come to mind are "Kuss Mich (Fellfrosch)" and "Te Quiero Puta!"... if that makes no sense to you, the former is about oral sex and the latter, well, for a start title translates to "I love you, whore".
    • The song "Rein raus". It translates to "In Out" and, well... yeah.
    • Rammstein has too many sex songs to mention, but the best is "Sehnsucht," being about one of those subtle German emotions English has no word for. "Sehnsucht" translates roughly as "longing" but it's far more complex than that, to the point where C. S. Lewis has written a lot about the spiritual aspects of it. The song, though, describes it in terms of wanderlust and the desire to finger a woman, complete with a lot of really gross euphemisms.
      • Rammstein build their songs out of ambiguity and Double Entendre. "Du Hast", for example, where the eponymous refrain can be both "Du hast" ("You have", from "haben") and "Du hasst" ("You hate", from "hassen").
    • "Spiel mit mir" is a brother/brother incest song.
    • "Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen?" translates to "Do you want to see the bed in flames?" Discuss. "Sex is a battle, love is war".
      • "Das Alte Leid", also off Herzeleid, which contains the lyrics "I know at last... I want to fuck"
      • But "how do we sleep while our beds are burning"? (From a song which isn't this at all.)
    • Their new single is called "Pussy" (it isn't about cats) and the uncensored video really settles the matter. Though for some reason, there are some who claim the song is a criticism of US/German relations... the political kind. The band says it's a parody on the sex tourism trade and if you've ever been overseas and met the kind of people who get into sex tourism, you know just how disturbingly good of a parody it is.
      • From the same album, "Ich tu dir weh" (I Hurt You)" adds a heavy dose of Squick that got the uncensored album banned in its home country. Some of the lyrics, when translated to English, sing as: "Bites, kicks, hard blows/Needles, pliers, dull saw/Make a wish, I won't say no/And I'll insert the rodents into you".
    • The song "Mann Gegen Mann" is quite clearly about gay intercourse.
    • The band name itself, though literally translating to "battering ram", is a slang term for penis, as well as being a reference to an airshow accident at Ramstein airfield, in keeping with Rammstein's fondness for dual meanings.
  • WASP and some of their more memorable songs, most notorious among them "Animal (Fuck Like A Beast)". About as subtle as a nuclear bomb.

  I fuck like a beast!

    • Other titles to look out for include: "Little Death", "Harder Faster", "Sex Drive", "Shoot from the hip" "Kill Fuck Die" and "On your knees".
  • Titles such as "Orgasm," "Standing Sex," and "Sadistic Desire" make it clear that the word "subtlety" is not anywhere in X Japan 's vocabulary.
  • The lyrics for "Mechanix" by Megadeth consist entirely of automobile-related innuendos:

 Whoever thought you'd be better

At turning a screw than me

I do it for my life

Made my driveshaft crank

Made my pistons bulge

Made my ball bearings melt from the heat

  • Mr. Bungle's "Squeeze Me Macaroni" or "The Girls Of Porn" AND MANY MORE!
  • Despite popular belief, "Meaning of Life" by Disturbed is not battle music (or maybe it is).

 I wanna get psycho / run you little bitch

I want your power glowing, juicy flowing, red hot meaning of life

It's not enough to have a little taste / I want the whole damn thing (can you dig it?)

Need to get psycho / Wanna hear you say it

Say you want it / Need it / Don't wanna wait until we finish the show

It's not enough / You hunger for more

You're one twisted little fuck/ Now you wanna get psycho with me".

    • Of note, the band decided to play it during the "Groupies" section of their home-made documentary M.O.L (interestingly named after the song in question).
  • Kid Rock 's "Cowboy" is obviously about pimping and sex, but I had to explain to my wife the meaning of the line "paint his wife white", as in "covering her with sticky white liquid."
  • Tool's "Stinkfist" is about a more hands-on approach to lovemaking.
    • At least, it is on first listen. The act described in the song is actually a metaphor for desensitization.
      • It's not limited to just Tool -- A Perfect Circle 's "Thinking Of You" is about masturbation. Puscifer's "Rev 22:20" combines religious references with a ton of innuendo. Subtlety, thy name is not Maynard James Keenan.
    • And don't even get me started on "Pushit". (Possibly.)
    • "Prison Sex" -- if you count child molestation as sex.
    • "Maynard's Dick" is, unlike most of Tool's other examples, played pretty straight.
  • Faith No More's "Be Aggressive" is pretty blatantly about gay oral sex. It was written as a joke by gay keyboardist Roddy Bottum, thinking that lead singer Mike Patton would be embarrassed to perform it. Ironically, it's the one song they've played live every show. Mike Patton tends to embrace the weird (and is no stranger to sex-themed lyrics).
    • "The Real Thing" includes lyrics like "A split second of divinity / you drink up the sky / all of heaven is in your arms." It's not the subtlest song.
    • This counts right? "Cuckoo For Caca" is about coprophilia, or scat. Look it up if you REALLY want.
  • "Eaten" by Bloodbath would be hard to describe as anything but a version of this for masochists and vorarephilics.
  • Manowar has lots of songs like this (in fact, every song that isn't about the Power of Metal Brothers In Flames Of Steel). The most over the top, to the point of parody, has got to be "Pleasure Slave". The intro is a dazzling melody of... lesbian porn screams and gasps. The lyrics somehow manage to be more explicit.
  • Type O Negative's "Wolf Moon" seems like it'd be about werewolves, until you read the lyrics.

 Woman, may I know you there? ...

Don't spill a drop, dear

Let me kiss the curse away

Yourself in my mouth

Will you leave me with your taste?

    • "Love You to Death", and "Be My Druidess":

  I'll do anything, to make you cum

  • A good number of songs by Nightwish seem to fall under this trope, or at least bear naughty undertones. A couple of obvious examples include "Nymphomaniac Fantasia" and "She Is My Sin."

  "God I muss confess, I do envy the sinners."

    • Don't forget "Wish I had an angel" :

 I wish I had an angel

For my moment of love

I wish I had your angel,

Your virgin Mary undone

I'm in love with my lust

Burning angel wings to dust

I wish I had your angel tonight

    • No love for "Passion and the Opera"?
    • Bare Grace Misery. Apart from the lyrics, it goes instrumental at 1:30 which builds to a crescendo and ends at 2:39 with a sigh from Tarja that brings to mind another sort of crescendo...
    • Feel For You. Very explicit.

 Barely cold in her grave,

Barely warm in my bed

Settling for a draw tonight

Puppet girl, your strings are mine

  • Sentenced's "Drain Me" is about a guy using a girl for oral sex. It's not exactly subtle.
  • Edguy's "Lavatory Love Machine" and "F*** ing with Fire" are two rather humorous examples.
  • Belphegor's music is generally about sex. And satanism. And everything in between (cue "Sexdictator Lucifer").
  • Savatage in some of their earlier works, "The Whip" (The Dungeons Are Calling) and "Skull Session" (Power of the Night).
  • "Turbo Lover" by Judas Priest is just one of the many:

 On and on we're charging to the place so many seek

In perfect synchronicity of which so many speak

We feel so close to heaven in this roaring heavy load

And then in sheer abandonment, we shatter and explode!!!!

    • "Eat Me Alive" is even more blatant. As a representative sample:

 Bound to deliver as

You give and I collect

Squealing impassioned as

The rod of steel injects

  • "Chaste Flesh" by Rage:

 My body's hungry

Sweating in heat

I'm gonna give her

My rod of meat

  • Venom has made plenty of them, each one being as subtle as a trainwreck. Take "Teacher's Pet" for example, which starts with a student getting caught masturbating under his desk at school and then spends the rest of the day screwing his teacher.
  • Deftones's "Passenger" doesn't even try to hide that it's about boinking in the car. (Or possibly just buttsex. Sex, either way.)
  • The Motorhead song "Eat the Rich" is about oral sex.
  • Pain, and how: "End Of The Line", "She Whipped", "Bitch", and more. Peter Tagtgren isn't a fan of subtlety. "Supersonic Bitch" even brings cybersex into the equation.
  • Cradle of Filth has quite some of this sort.
    • "Temptation"
    • "The Byronic Man"
    • "Lord Abortion"
  • Parodied in This Is Spinal Tap multiple times. Most egregiously "Tonight we're gonna rock you tonight".
  • For a band with such a heavy use of obscenities, "Geh zu ihr" by Knorkator is a surprisingly romantic and kind of sweet song, but still quite obviously a sex song.
    • And then there's also Ich will nur ficken, which puts it right in the title with "I just want to fuck".
    • And even more blatant is Ey Du Alte Ficksau. Then there is Lied vom Pferd ("Song of the Horse") which is pretty obviously about beastiality. On the other side of the spectrum, we have the slow Ich bin überhaupt nicht da ("I'm not even there"), which is about a depressed person, having sex with a hallucination (from the perspective of the hallucination).
  • Slayer turned The Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog" (about a guy attempting to get close to the girl he likes) into "I'm Gonna Be Your God" (which is straight up about having sex with said girl).
  • Dark Funeral's "My Latex Queen" is more one of these than about bondage, and is VERY explicit.
  • Daimond Head's "Sucking My Love", of which the title is hardly ambiguous. Notably covered by Metallica on an early demo.
  • Korn's Beat it Upright, which is about S and M. It's so bad that the edited version of the album it's on did not even include the track.
    • No mention of Last Legal Drug (Le Petit Mort)? They even use a French euphemism for orgasm as part of the title!
  • "Fuck" by Bring Me the Horizon. Surprise,surprise.
  • Blackened death metal band Akercocke's songs, when they're not about Satan, are usually about sex.


Rock Edit

  • V.A.S.T.'s "Dirty Hole" includes the gems: "Lately all I want is to be in your hole", and "As I spread thighs, my life flashes before my eyes". "How many men have been in your sacred hole?" morphs with repetetion to "how many men have died in your dirty hole / in this killing hole?"
  • Consider the lyrics of 'Slow Ride' by Sublime: "Walk a mile to see her smile/Walk a mile just to rock for a while/Babe I'm thinking with my ding-a-ling" and "You took my shame, and you took my pride/And now you gonna take me for a slow ride"
    • What about "Caress Me Down"? The lyrics, "And then she pulled out my mushroom tip" doesn't exactly scream subtle.
  • Underneath all the pretty imagery, "After The Last Midtown Show" by The Academy Is... is still about a night singer William Beckett spent with 'the only girl he ever loved.' Although one has to wonder whether it was about a girl at all considering that Midtown WAS Gabe Saporta's band.
    • William Beckett's solo music took it up a notch, with lyrics like "When the curtains closed/we were getting close/and the clothes in the corner laid there all night."
  • Listening to The Killers' song "Mr. Brightside", and then listening to "Thnks Fr Th Mmrs" right after is...interesting. (For those still not clued in, they're both about one-night stands/casual sex).
    • Speaking of The Killers, "Bones." The chorus is...quite explicit.
    • The chorus of "Mr. Brightside" is incredibly explicit. Particularly: "Now they're going to bed, and my stomach is sick, and it's all in my head, but she's touching his... chest." The rest of it is a little more subtle.
      • Likely because that song isn't so much about Sex as it is about someone watching someone they're interested in have sex with someone else and then possibly lie about it.
    • The Killers song "Midnight Show" is a subversion. The lyrics are mostly the words of a guy driving with his girlfriend telling her all of the sexy plans he has for her, but the band has revealed it's the middle song of the "murder trilogy" (coming after "Leave the Bourbon on the Shelf," and before "Jenny Was a Friend of Mine"). He's saying those things to lure his girlfriend to a secluded place to kill her and escape their dysfunctional relationship.
      • "Midnight Show" is fairly obviously about murder, especially once you know that live performances of "Jenny Was a Friend of Mine" make it clear that Jenny was strangled.
  • Subverted in "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails. Although the first line is "You let me violate you" and the song's refrain includes the line "I want to fuck you like an animal" it's generally regarded as not being about sex. Or if it is, it's about sex in the wrongest way.
    • He did cover Adam Ant's "(You're So) Physical" and "Get Down Make Love" by Queen so that should count for something.
    • "The Only Time". I mean, Trent Reznor even used to introduce the song by saying, "This is a song about fucking."
    • Wait. A good portion of Trent's career is built up on songs about sex! "Kinda I Want To" (come on: the title), "Sin" ("I gave you my purity/my purity you stole" sets the mood of the song, as does the music video), "The Only Time" (as mentioned above), as mentioned, "Physical", "Closer", "Reptile" (the whole song is about screwing a prostitute), "Big Man With a Gun" ("I am a big man, yes, I am and I've got a big gun/got me a big ol' dick and I like to have fun" etc.), "Deep" ("all I can do/driving on through/into you"), (by some interpretation, at least one line) "The Perfect Drug" ("you make me hard/when I'm all soft inside"), "With Teeth" (the whole song, basically, although some say that the woman is a drug metaphor), "Sunspots" ("she turns me on/she makes it real/I have to apologize/for the way I feel" & "fuck in the fire", though same as With Teeth)... and much, much more. Altough, Trent is Trent so Your Mileage May Vary
  • Muse's "Easily". While it seems to be their standard epicically romantic fare, lines like "I want to touch you deep inside" and "Easily the best I ever had" seem to imply that he's just singing about a really good one night stand. "Time Is Running Out" ("You will suck the life out of me" with emphasis on "suck") and "Supermassive Black Hole" ("ooh baby don't you know I suffer, but ooh baby can you hear me moan?") are also very good examples, and "Undisclosed Desires" couldn't possibly be interpreted differently.
  • The Beatles "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?". That one line is the lyrics.
    • Some are mistaken for sex, such as "Come Together" (written for Timothy Leary's failed attempt to run for Governor of California) and "Please Please Me" (allegedly about oral sex, but John just liked repeating the word).
    • A lot of the Beatles' early songs, from when they were still considered the "clean" alternative to The Rolling Stones, are like this. Particularly, there's the chirpy "Hold Me Tight" - it sounds like another cute story of teenage love until "Making love to only you..."
    • There's "Lovely Rita", which is so utterly blatant it has sound effects during the instrumental part.
      • Coming to a climax with the spoken words, "I'm leaving".
    • Album one, track one, line one: "She was just 17...if you know what I mean..."
      • The Beatles claimed that even they didn't know what they meant.
      • Yeah, and she wouldn't have been Jail Bait, if that's what you're referring to; the age of consent in Britain is sixteen. Also, the original line that Paul wrote was "She was just seventeen/Never been a beauty queen" but changed as he and John thought it was a Painful Rhyme.
    • "Baby, you can drive my car!"
      • She doesn't have a car, but she has a driver.
    • "Back in The USSR" is pretty dirty too:

 Show me round your snow-peaked mountains way down south

Take me to your daddy's farm

Let me hear those balalaikas ringing out

Come and keep your comrade warm

  • U2 have the occasional song. "Even Better than the Real Thing", for example. Or "Mysterious Ways". "Do You Feel Loved". "Staring at the Sun" doesn't count since it's more of a metaphor for people's apathy and escapism when faced with the problems of the world.
    • "Desire", "If You Wear That Velvet Dress" and possibly "Elevation". Bono's subtle, but not that subtle.
    • And then there's "Big Girls Are Best", the B-side to "Stuck In A Moment" of all things which throws any trace of subtlety out of the window.
    • Just listen to Achtung Baby and you'll soon realise just how many references to oral sex are spread out through the album. It's rather surprising just how often they try to slip it in.
  • 'Dare' by Gorillaz. Supposedly it's about masturbation and with lyrics like "You've got to press it on you/ You just think it/ That's what you do baby./ Hold it down there." and the chorus of "It's coming up, it's coming up, it's coming up..." it's pretty plausible.
  • "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen features a list of Double Entendres a mile long, although considering it features the line "I'm a sex machine ready to reload", it may actually, like most Queen songs, be about nothing.
    • It's also blatantly bisexual, casually switching between singing to a man and a woman in the lyrics.
    • "Tie Your Mother Down" is about a boy getting his parents out of the house so he can have sex with his girlfriend although it may not be a girl at one point...
    • "Fat-Bottomed Girls" is more straightforward -- although as its entry on Lyrical Dissonance shows, it's not a very pretty picture. Admittedly, some guys like that -- evidently Brian May did...
    • Then there's "Body Language" and "Get Down Make Love".
  • It may seem pretty innocent on the surface, but The Who's "Squeezebox" becomes a blatant innuendo under closer observation.

 Cause she's playing all night, and the music's alright. Mama's got a squeezebox, Daddy never sleeps at night.

    • What about this part?

 She goes squeeze me. C'mon and squeeze me. C'mon and tease me like ya do. I'm so in love with you.

    • Not to mention the seemingly never ending chorus of " in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out".
    • "Pictures of Lily", which is about A Date with Rosie Palms.
  • Also, "Mary Anne With The Shaky Hand" sure sounds mild enough, but the lyrics get pretty blatant.

I danced with Linda / I danced with Jean / I danced with Cindy / Then I suddenly see / Mary-Anne with the shaky hands / What they've done to her man Those shaky hands

  • "You Better You Bet" is pretty blatant too-- You welcome me with open arms / and open legs / I know only fools have needs / but this one never begs


  • Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" starts out subtle enough, but by the time Robert Plant gets to proclaiming "I'm gonna give you every inch of my love," the cat's out of the bag. All the moaning and "Oh!"s add to this.
    • What do you mean it doesn't start too bad?

  You need cooling/baby I ain't fooling/I'm gonna send you/back to schooling/way down inside/woman you need it

    • That line proved too explicit for Chinese Olympic officials, and was altered for the closing ceremony of the 2008 Games. Really.
      • Don't forget about "Shake for me girl, I wanna be your backdoor man". Hur hur hur bumsex, or blues-talk for a secret lover: The "back door" he uses is literally the back door of his (usually married) lover's house for his escape.
    • "Custard Pie" starts with "Drop down, baby, let's go to sleep, yeah/Drop down, mama, lay down, just dream of me". Subtlety? We don't need no stinkin' subtlety!
    • "Squeeze my lemon 'til the juice runs down my leg"
    • Let's not forget about "Trampled Underfoot," a song filled with euphemisms.
      • 'Trampled Underfoot' is probable one of the steamiest examples: The entire song is about sex, described in automotive terms

  Greased and slicked down fine, groovy leather trim/I like the way you hold the road, mama, it ain't no sin!

    • "In The Evening" deserves a special mention for Jimmy Page's solo sounding like he's having sex with his guitar. Literally.
  • Radiohead's "Thinking About You" ("Did he just say he was playing with himself?") and The Smiths' "Reel Around The Fountain", among others.
    • Stone Temple Pilots' song "Unglued" doesn't even try to be subtle.
  • Blink182's "Feeling This" is very much this kind of song. "Show me the bedroom floor/Show me the bathroom mirror/We're taking this way too slow/Take me away from here"
  • The Rolling Stones have done a few of these. "Start Me Up" is probably the least subtle. Unless it's "Brown Sugar, which is about sex with a slave in the antebellum south.
    • "Loving Cup":

 Yes, I am nitty gritty and my shirt's all torn

But I would love to spill the beans with you 'til dawn

    • Then there's "Let It Bleed":

 Well we all need someone we can cream on

And if you want to, well you can cream on me

    • And also "Honky Tonk Woman," which probably does not describe an allergy problem:

 She blew my nose and then she blew my mind

I've always heard it as She blew my doors, which was a euphemism for oral sex

    • An early Stones example would be "Let's Spend the Night Together", which may seem pretty mild and innocuous now but positively scandalized a lot of people back in '67.
  • Aerosmith's song "Pink". It's not altogether explicit but still...
      • "Pink like the bing on your cherry." Seriously.
    • "Love In An Elevator" can't be mistaken for anything else, even if you try.
      • That album has more, even opening with "Young Lust".
    • And "Walk This Way", their cover of "Big Ten Inch (Blues Record)"... Aerosmith, Intercoursing With You since 1973.
  • Pop Punk band Frickin' A does this intentionally in "Naked in My Bed." The entire thing is basically a guy who probably doesn't get laid very much fantasizing about a girl at the pool:

 Naked in my bed

one fling no strings

movin' all around the room

chicka chicka boom boom...and then we did it

on the floor

against the door

up on the sink where we did it some more

the sun was hot and we were both burning red

we were naked in my bed

  Oh, babe, I wanna put my log in your fireplace!

  • Red Hot Chili Peppers have plenty of sexual metaphors in their music. "Suck My Kiss".
    • "C'mon Girl" contains some of my favourite innuendos ever. Like "The cave within your mountainside / Is deeper than it will be wide...".
    • "Give It Away" has my favorite: "What I've got you've got to get it put it in you".
      • Even WORSE: "What I've got you've got to give it to your mama(/papa/daughter)"
        • Which suggests it's not, in fact, about sex. At least, not all of it.
      • As we all know from The Simpsons, changing the line "What I got you gotta get and put it in ya" to "What I'd like is I'd like to hug and kiss ya" makes it much better - "Everyone can enjoy that!"
    • "Sir Psycho Sexy". Period. It even has the pornofunkywahwah guitars.
    • Or anything on (as you might expect) the Blood Sugar Sex Magik album. "Sopping wet her pink umbrella/do the dog with Isabella." Et cetera et cetera ad (sometimes literally) nauseum.
    • "I like pleasure spiked with pain..." "Aeroplane" seems to be about getting off to a song sung by the object of the singer's affections.
      • I always felt "Aeroplane" was about heroine addiction, not sex.
    • Let's not forget the good old "Purple Stain" which starts with "To finger paint is not a sin/ I put my middle finger in/ Your monthly blood is what I win/ I'm in your house now let me spin". Subtle.
    • The song "Special Secret Song Inside" was originially called "Party on Your Pussy," but Executive Meddling made them change it. The chorus was just "I wanna party on your pussy baby," so the message still remained.
  • ACDC made a career out of this ("You Shook Me", "Shoot To Thrill", "(She's Got) The Jack", "Big Balls"). Not to mention the charming "Giving The Dog A Bone", which is about oral sex.
    • (She's Got) The Jack is technically about a lady with a venereal disease...
    • Apparently Brian Johnson has a very good reason why he's singing those songs.
    • And probably because Bon Scott was perpetually drunk/horny (how do you think he died?)
    • Whose Line Is It Anyway? parodied this tendency during a Compilation Album game with a song called "I Dropped My Chips In Your Nuts."
    • "Touch Too Much" is another standout example, and "Let Me Put My Love Into You" actually wound up at #6 on the PMRC's "Filthy Fifteen" list of the most objectionable rock songs by content. (Incidentally, "sexual content" was cited as the reason for inclusion of nine of those songs.)
  • The Cure's "The Lovecats." "Let's have each other for dinner / Let's have each other with cream." That it's dirty is unquestionable. The only question is what particular variety of perversion you think of at the line. Foodplay?
    • Making Paul Anka's cover version on his Rock Swings album, even more disturbing.Eating out? There's quite a lot of possibilities, if your mind is significantly dirty.
    • The Cure by this point had a lot of experience writing songs about sex musically as far removed from "sexy" as can possibly be... But, by the same token, most of these songs actually subvert the trope by being either Nightmare Fuel or just horribly depressing. The 1982 album Pornography is made of this, with the glacially-paced dirge "Siamese Twins" taking the cake for being the most sexually explicit and least sexy song on the entire album.
  • Guns N' Roses' "Welcome to The Jungle" is fairly subtle until Axl starts with the moaning. Then it gets more blatant from there

 Feel * my* ...* my* ...* my* serpentine

I, I wanna hear you scream

    • But considering the song is mostly about a savage place, it's not pretty sex he's talking about.
    • "Anything Goes" and "Rocket Queen" don't try to hide its sexual content - the latter even adds an live-at-studio example of The Immodest Orgasm.
  • Tenacious D: "Kielbasa", "Double Team" and the less-than-subtle "Fuck Her Gently" all spring to mind. Of course, they're mostly just lampshading the trope.
  • Gackt's "Vanilla", "Dispar", and (probably) "Papa Lapped a Pap Lop" are all about this trope (both as in "all of them" and "all about"). They give pretty detailed instructions, too - Gackt clearly has a thing for long fingernails and for dominance. Oh, and there's "To Feel the Fire" as well.
    • The album artwork for the Mars album paired the lyrics to "Vanilla" with a picture of a well endowed woman wearing a low cut blouse who had apparently just had a glob of melted vanilla ice cream drop onto her cleavage.
    • Back during Malice Mizer days, Illuminati. Look at the PV, then at the LIVE. Try to tell me it's about a secret covert group THEN.
      • Careful where you step with Illuminati, though. The PV is Fetish Fuel to some, but to others it's highly concentrated Nightmare Fuel. The Live is better for explaining this trope in particular, especially given the Gackt Sandwich.
    • And now of course, there is the newest attempt at out-doing "Vanilla", "Koakuma Heaven", which he sings either from the POV of a hooker, or a gold digger. Then Fandom is still out on that one...
  • It should be obvious what Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself" is about, although he claims it's just about kids in Asian nightclubs dancing alone. Yeah, right.
    • In point of fact, that one's an "Intercourse With Me" song.
    • Billy Idol has plenty of these, of course, but his absolutely most blatant is his newer single, "Scream." Lots of lemon references.
    • Not to mention "Rebel Yell", which was allegedly about giving a really good blow job to a woman.
  • Alice Cooper had a bunch of songs like this; perhaps most blatant was "I'm Your Gun".
    • "Feed My Frankenstein" includes the line "Let me drink the wine from your fur tea cup."
  • While the song is about something completely different, the very first lines of "Makes Me Wonder" by Maroon 5 qualify:

  Wake up with bloodshot eyes/struggle to memorize/the way you felt between my thighs/pleasure that made you cry

    • Most of Maroon 5's songs have at least one line/verse that falls into this trope. Maroon 5 pretty much runs on this trope.
  • Meat Loaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light", a 3 part ballad, where the second part jumps to a baseball announcer talking about a player going from base to base and heading toward home...with a background of a man and woman moaning.
    • "I would do anything for love... But I won't do that!"
      • Not quite as bas as is sounds, the "That" in question being forgetting the girl and moving on. Still: "But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way, tonight."
  • Robby Krieger's lyrics for The Doors included the generically sexy "Love Me Two Times" and "Light My Fire". Jim Morrison's lyrics were a lot more transgressive, with throwaway sexual lines like "love your neighbor til his wife gets in". The album version of "The End" has an Oedipal moment where a character called The Killer tells his father he wants to kill him, and his mother he wants to EEAAAAUUUURRRYG. The one time Jim Morrison's mother came to a Doors concert, Jim replaced the scream with an even less subtle "FUCK YOU".
    • One gets the impression his relationship with his parents was a strained one.
    • "Fuck the mother, kill the father. Fuck the mother, kill the father. Fuck the mother, kill the father."
  • Dommin. "Im coming home with you;-(To fill a hole in you)" And various other lyrics.
  • Heart's Crazy on You. Delicious lines, along with a wild acoustic intro that can only be described as "orgasmic".
  • Julien-K, "Systeme de Sexe." Complete with moaning in the background that makes it sound like the BGM to a porno. The chorus is also horribly catchy.
  • She started in the Country realm, but once she freed herself from that and started her Rock phase, Le Ann Rimes' songs were pretty clearly within this realm if not being outright about it.
    • "Tic Toc" is almost startlingly clearly placed in this category, especially considering her 'wholesome' songs beforehand.
  • Bruce Springsteen has a song called "Red Headed Woman". What's it about? Let the man himself sum it up for you. HINT: it's cunnilingus. Includes some truly beautiful lyrics.
--> Well push come to shove man and, shove comes to push and I was
--> Moses kneeling 'fore the burning bush of a Red Headed Woman
    • "Cross My Heart" seems to have similar subject matter: "I was lying there with something sweet and salty in my mouth"
    • For that matter "Dancing in the Dark" is about becoming a male "escort". "This gun's for hire / even if we're just dancing in the dark"
    • "Pink Cadillac" is another example. Actually, he once refused to let Bette Midler do a cover because he said it "wasn't a girls song"
  • Tori Amos' "Leather" doesn't even pretend to not be explicit:

 Look I'm standing naked before you

don't you want more than my sex

I can scream as loud as your last one

but I can't claim innocence."

    • "Raspberry Swirl" is often interpreted as a sex song, but it is unclear exactly what it means. Some people assume it's about cunnilingus - the word swirl is used as a verb, and the raspberry... Others assume it's about lesbianism, orgasms, or even about having sex with a woman on her period. Guess what the raspberry swirl is in this situation.
    • In usual Tori Amos fashion, "Body and Soul" is about a woman trying to seduce a priest.
  • Someone already mentioned "Reel Around the Fountain" but any good fan of The Smiths can pull out at least a dozen more that fit this trope. Morrissey on his own isn't too shy of it, either. See "It's Not Your Birthday Anymore" for a most recent example.

 All the gifts that they gave can't compare in any way

To the love I am now giving to you

Right here right now on the floor...

  • Almost anything by Liz Phair fits this trope quite nicely, up until her latest album, Somebody's Miracle, which, actually, didn't have a single explicit song on it. Shocker. I'm usually not one for explicit songs, but she can be pretty damn funny; "H.W.C.",(standing for Hot White Cum) is a very upbeat, poppy-sounding song, until you pay attention to the lyrics. But when a girl has a song called "Fuck And Run" on her first album, what do you expect?
    • Sample lyrics from "Flower," which evidently was one of her first demo tracks:

 Every time I see your face

I think of things not pure and chaste

I want to fuck you like a dog

I'll take you home and make you LIKE it

  • Kate Bush has a couple of songs like this, oddly enough. "Feel It" and Moving" remind us that love & lust can go together - and they was released when she was only 19! Another song, "The Sensual World", has these lyrics:

 And at first with the charm around him, mmh, yes,

He loosened it so if it slipped between my breasts

He'd rescue it, mmh, yes,

And his spark took life in my hand...

    • "Symphony In Blue" doesn't even try to be implicit. "The more I think about sex, the better it gets!"
    • "Running up that hill" is about sex, and has a wonderful, understated, feminine climax.
    • "Nocturne" in her "Aerial" album - delicious.
    • "The Red Shoes" is about a folklore tale, which IMO is about sex - a girl may be a nun, a wife, or a whore. Once you put on those red shoes, you can never take them off, but must dance for the rest of your life.
  • Van Halen. "Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love", "Hot For Teacher" and "Dance the Night Away" are only three obvious examples.
    • "Up For Breakfast" and "Unchained" were loaded with double and triple entendres of this variety.
      • "Up For Breakfast" doesn't even bother with entendres for the first verse, it's more or less pretty blatant. "Got the hand...put it where its gonna heal ya / Got the finger...put it right there on the trigger / Well, pump it up, pump it up / Baby make it bigger."
        • "Up for Breakfast" is typical of the Sammy Hagar years; he seemed to love writing innuendo-laced songs about food. "Good Enough" and "Poundcake" also come to mind.
  • The Dead Kennedys song "Too Drunk to Fuck" is a parody of this.
  • "Electric Feel" by MGMT could be viewed as an innocent story of a young boy's first experience of love. However if you actually listen to the lyrics and the heavy bass, you might be reminded of something a little less innocent.

 Saw 'er in the Amazon, with the voltage runnin' through 'er skin

Standin' there with nothin' on, she gonna teach me how to swim

I said "Ooh girl.. shock me like an electric eel"

"Baby girl.. turn me on with your electric feel"

  • Big Joe Turner's original version of "Shake, Rattle and Roll" (the Bill Haley version is somewhat cleaned up):

 I been holdin' it in, way down underneath

You make me roll my eyes, baby, make me grit my teeth

  • We've honestly made it this far with no mention of Methods of Mayhem's Get Naked?? That one's about as subtle as getting hit by a Mack truck.
  • Subverted by Family Force 5's "Love Addict." The title certainly sounds like a euphemism, and the "crunk" aspect of Crunkcore gives the song a vaguely raunchy feel, but if you pay attention to the lyrics, it's fairly obvious that it's either about love as an abstract concept, or the Divine Love of the Christian God.
  • At least two from Bob Seger:
    • Night Moves is obviously just a sex song
    • The Fire Down Below is about hookers (and possibly STDs)
  • Falling in Reverse has "Good Girls, Bad Guys" with lyrics like, "I just wanna kiss your lips, the ones between your hips" and the even more blunt, "Sorry girl if this is quick, so please just take it in the a** and suck my d***."
  • Get Set Go has many, ranging from the euphemism-heavy "Sweet Little Kisses" which has lyrics like "I want to suck out your honey and nibble your jewel, I wanna eat from your flower until I am full, I wanna dive into your swimming pool", to the flat-out not-even-trying-to-be-subtle song "What I Love About You," with such classic lines as "I love your vagina, I love the flavour of your lips" to the incredibly blunt "Fuck You (I Want To)," which contains lines like "You look pretty good, I think I wanna fuck you, I do, I do, I do"
  • Many, many songs by Foreigner. Some are interchangeable about cars and women.
  • Bad Company's "Feel Like Making Love".
  • Nearly every line of Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" and "Steam"; any doubt about the lyrics will be erased by the videos (in the "Steam" video, for instance, a man and a woman shake the trunk of a tree full of babies).
    • "Blood of Eden" is similar, actually containing an entire descriptive verse about an orgasm.
    • "Kiss That Frog". The entire song is an unashamed metaphor for placing lips on, err...something else.
      • In fact, it would probably be easier to list all his songs which don't include at least one innuendo.
  • Modern English's "I Melt With You" is worthy of mention, because Executive Meddling caused the cover of it used for Sky High to use the line "Moving forward using all my breath / Making friends with you was never second best," with the net result that while one instance of sexual activity had been removed from the song, anyone old enough to recall the original had their fond memories sodomized instead.
    • Furthermore, there is a character in Sky High who can turn into water. So...
  • Hotel California by The Eagles contains several lines referencing sex, including one about "mirrors on the ceiling."
    • And don't let me go into "Life In The Fast Lane"...
  • The ZZ Top song "Pearl Necklace" is not about jewelery. "I Got The Six, Gimme Your Nine" is even less subtle.
    • Oh, and the song "Tube Snake Boogie" is about surfing... would they lie?
  • The Eagles of Death Metal are all about this, with songs like "Don't Speak (I Came to Make a BANG!)", "I Want You So Hard (Boy's Bad News)", "I Gotta Feelin (Just Nineteen)", and "I Like to Move in the Night". The list goes on.
    • Two other good examples of Eo DM songs: "Shasta Beast" ("I wanna pick the lock and break your chastity/I've got the combination and the master key/I'm a dancer and romancer not a monster beast/None come before you, none come after me") and "Solo Flights" (which offers an interesting variation of this trope, since it's about intentionally exclusive self-love; "You don't get it/You don't get it/No one gets to love me/You don't get it, no/'Cause I'll get it on"). Also their 2008 album is called "Heart On." Hurr hurr.
  • Extreme's "More Than Words" is a crooning soft-rock ballad about how saying "I love you" doesn't actually mean anything. Although it may seem to be saying that sex is the only way to really show love, in fact it's sung from the perspective of Gary Cherone's girlfriend, who was upset that, although he told her he loved her, he never showed it (according to an episode of VH1's "Bands Reunited").
  • The Black Crowes song "Hard to Handle" is all about the singer bragging to another man's girlfriend/wife about his sexual prowess. Like most southern-rock songs of this sort, he gets away with it by referring to sex as "lovin'", though it's pretty clear that love's the last thing on his mind.
    • Originally written and sung by Otis Redding, so the "southern-rock" designation, maybe not so much, but presumably soul uses the same euphemism.
  • "Make It Wit You" by Queens of the Stone Age is almost the trope title verbatim.
  • Soundgarden later made fun of these 80s bands using ridiculous metaphors by writing a song called "Big Dumb Sex" with the frank chorus "Hey, I know what to do / I'm gonna fuck you".
    • Chris Cornell's post-Soundgarden effort, Euphoria Morning has quite a few of these: "Mission", "Disappearing One", "Pillow Of Your Bones" ("Swallowing the poison of your flower/and hanging on the rising of my low"), and possibly "Moonchild".
  • "Rape Me" by Nirvana sounds pretty blatant but the way they're talking about sex is anything but fun and cheeky.
    • It was conceived as an anti-rape song from a woman's perspective. Cobain also admitted that it probably was also influenced by how he felt about media intrusion on his private life.
    • And while "Rape Me" is told from the victim's POV, "Polly" is from the rapist. "Polly wants a cracker / Think I should get off her first"... but Kurt Cobain was shocked to see it found a Misaimed Fandom with actual rapists.
  • Nickelback's song "Animals" is a song about... well just go find the lyrics.
    • Completely blatant, as the singer flat-out states that they had sex in the back of his truck.
    • On the other hand, "Figured You Out" is a lot less subtle... though it still never uses the word "sex".
    • "You look so much cuter with something in your mouth."
      • Believe it or not, the song is actually about lollipops. Subversion?
    • Nickelback throws anything in the way of subtlety out the window with the song "S.E.X."
  • Hoobastank seems to like these. "To Be With You" and "Inside Of You", especially, are pretty obvious.
  • "Paralyzer" by Finger Eleven includes the lyric "But I am imagining/ A dark-lit place/ Or your place, or my place" Odds that they're singing about photographer's darkrooms? Slim to none.
  • The chorus of Foo Fighters' "All My Life" is about cunnilingus ("Hey, don't let it go to waste, I love it but, I hate that taste, Weight, keeping me down").
  • Just about every song by Hot Action Cop is some form of Intercourse with You song, but the most blatant is unquestionably "Fever for the Flava". The music video had more visual metaphors for sex per second than any other music video ever made, before giving up on any attempt at subtlety and just showing the entire city getting it on. Seriously, it has to be seen to be believed.

 Can I get a little yum yum (kitty kitty)

Just a little sumthin sumthin (itty bitty)

Do you wanna get triple-x groovy?

Gimme gimme some of that kind of movie

And let me spin ya like a record (wicky wicky)

Let me get ya butt nekkid (licky licky)

Here we go, yo here's the scenario

Gonna strip you down like a car in the barrio

  • "Take Off Your Clothes" by Morningwood. The female lead singer is in favor, her boyfriend is against.
  • "The Difference Between Us" by The Dead Weather could definitely be seen this way. Hard to tell with Jack White though.
  • Evanescence's "Secret Door" is probably one of the more subtle songs. Just saying.
  • In "Factory Girl" by The Pretty Reckless the singer wants to have intercourse with you, but possibly only after you pay her.
  • Matchbox Twenty's song "Crutch", which is about a guy who wants a relationship with a girl, but she just wants him for sex, has "I think you've got a piece of my heart on your face/It's a shame to let it waste/How does it taste? How does it taste?"
  • Alien Ant Farm's "Glow" features relatively deep verses about a relationship ending and one getting a new girlfriend, only to be followed by a chorus consisting of innuendos and innuendos only.
  • They Might Be Giants claim that their song "S-E-X-X-Y" is an "ode to getting it on". Of course, being They Might Be Giants, it's very unusual for a song in this category...
  • R.E.M.'s "Star 69" sounds like it might be this trope -- but it's actually about the phone service that gives you the number that just called you. Many people in the US got it; people outside the US and morons did not.
  • Boston's "Let Me Take You Home Tonight".


Hip-hop/R&B Edit

  • I'll Make Love to You by Boyz II Men is direct to the point.
  • "Let's Get It On" and "Sexual Healing", both by Marvin Gaye.
    • Hell, his name is Marvin Gaye (but only because he wisely put an E...).
  • R. Kelly don't see nothin' wrong with a little Bump 'n Grind.
    • Ignition. Not Ignition (Remix), mind you. Just straight up Ignition.
    • Sex Me. Both parts.
  • "Shut Up And Drive" by Rihanna.
  • "Get Low" by Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz.
  • Spoofed by The Lonely Island and Justin Timberlake on Saturday Night Live with the musical skit, "Dick In A Box." A pseudo-contemporary R&B song about exactly what it sounds like.
    • One of the groups they parodied was early 90's R&B group Color Me Badd, who released a song titled "I Wanna Sex You Up".
    • Also, there's their song "Wait (You Guys)," a parody of "The Whisper Song" (by The Ying Yang Twins), about, well, showing women their penises.
      • Also their song "Jizz in My Pants" is about a guy who...you know. The problem is so bad that he jizzes in his pants after eating a grape. Yeah.
    • Being lower than the top rung on the satire scale, DIAB was itself spoofed, in "Box in a Box" (featured on Countdown), which left Mr Timberlake lost for an opinion. With bonus subtext about body modification: How can she put her Box in another Box?
    • Also spoofed in "I Just Had Sex", their lead song off their second album, featuring Akon, which is pretty much open and frank about the fact Andy and Jorma just had sex.
  • "Oops, Oh My" by R&B singer Tweet is the same subject as "I Touch Myself" without half the subtlety.
  • Nelly Furtado's song "Promiscuous" is pretty straightforward. "Maneater", though, she claims to be as much about the demands of modern life as sex. "Say It Right" seems just like a love song, but then comes the last lines: "From my body I could show you a place God knows/You should know the space is holy/Do you really want to go?".
  • Akon's "Right Now (Na na na)". "I WANNA MAKE LOVE RIGHT NOW NOW NOW" Actually, most of his songs qualify.
    • Specially "I Wanna Fuck You" (the airplay version is "I Wanna Love You").
  • Ludacris is the master at this. "Splash Waterfalls" comes to mind, detailing all the methods to have sex, with the first half of the chorus rap describing a sensual love scene with a woman singing "make love to me" and describing a quickie the lyrics "Fuck me" ("Touch me" in the edited version is sung instead).
  • Florida takes songs that weren't originally about sex and heavily samples them in songs that are, such as "Right Round" (sampling Dead or Alive's 1984 hit "You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)") and "Sugar" (sampling Eiffel 65's 1999 hit "Blue (Da Ba Dee)").
    • Oh, wait..."You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)" is about sex. It's just a bit less explicit about it.
  • Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body".
  • Janet Jackson's albums practically live and breathe this trope, although you really have to look no further than her .janet album. jackson/if_20069581.html "If" and jackson/any+ time+ any+ place_20069578.html "Anytime, Anyplace" are the most blatant, though sexual subtlety is not a strength.
    • I'll see those two, and raise you "Would you Mind?" from All for You. The lyrics are filthy enough, and subtle as a flying brick, but it really gets out of hand during the last minute of the song. (She stops singing and just fakes an orgasm.) ...At least, we hope she was faking.
  • Timbaland & Justin Timberlake's "Carry Out" combines this trope with fast-food metaphors:

 Number one, I take two number threes

That's a whole lot of you and a side of me

Now is it full of myself to want you full of me

And if it's room for dessert then I want a piece

  • Ginuwine - Pony. Nuff said.
  • Hey everybody, while we're at it, "Let's Talk About Sex."
    • Which is, surprisingly enough for those who haven't actually listened to the song, actually a subversion. Salt-N-Pepa wrote the song as an invitation to a mature, frank, and open discussion about sexual relationships. There are even a few lines within the song admitting that people will probably see the title and misunderstand what they were trying to get at.
    • They later broke out the anvils when they did a reworked version called "Let's Talk About AIDS".
  • "Tell Me Something Good" by Chaka Khan and Rufus (infamously used in the "Oh Kitty" episode of That 70s Show.
  • Mad Cobra's astoundingly blunt "Flex (Time to Have Sex)"
  • Mtume's "Juicy Fruit" uses pretty much every candy metaphor they can think of. Including the not-at-all metaphor "I'll be your lollipop (You can lick me everywhere!)"
  • Sean Paul's "Get Busy". "Till the early morning, let's get it on..."
  • Lil Wayne - "Lollipop".
  • India.Arie's song "Brown Skin" basically contains a lot of candy related metaphors, such as chocolate or licorice. The most obvious innuendo is "Every time I let you in, abracadabra magic happens as we swim/Higher and higher finally we reach heaven/Come back to earth and then we do it all again".
  • "Livin' La Vida Loca" by Ricky Martin.
  • Pretty much anything by Ready for the World.
  • "Cruisin'" by Smokey Robinson. It starts out rather subtle. However each successive verse becomes less and less so until Smokey finally gives us "I could just stay there inside you and love you, baby". Not inside with you. Inside you. And speaking of "driving"...
  • "Pull Up To The Bumper" by Grace Jones. This is the first half of the chorus: "Pull up to my bumper, baby/In your long, black limousine/Pull up to my bumper, baby/Drive it in between". If driving a limousine in between a bumper is too understated for you, feel free to listen to the rest of the song to see what she's referring to. At home.
  • Usher's "Love in This Club", with plenty of lovely lines such as:

 I can't take it no more

Baby I'm coming for you

    • and:

 I'll be like your medicine

You'll take every dose of me

    • as well as my personal favorite:

 Let's both get undressed right here

Keep it up girl, and I swear

I'mma give it to you non-stop

And I don't care who's watching

    • "Nice and Slow" is pretty blatant.

 I got plans to put my hands

in places I've never seen

Now you know what I mean

  • "Too Close", originally by the group Next but covered by the group Blue. The whole song is about how grinding on this girl is giving him a boner. The chorus is a little more ambiguous about it:

 Baby when were grinding

I get so excited

Ooh how I like

I try but I cant fight it

Oh you're dancing real close

Plus its real real slow

You're making it hard for me

    • But these lines make it obvious:

Step back you're dancing too close (yeah)

I feel a little pull coming through

On you

Now, girl, I know you felt it

  • Chrisette Michele's "If I Have My Way".
  • Beyonce, "1+1," where she outright pleads "Make love to me."
  • Longo and Wainwright's "One Life Stand".
  • Trey Songz is made of this. In fact it's probably easier to list the songs that aren't full of this trope ("Can't Be Friends" is probably the only single). Examples that are blatant even in the title are "Neighbors Know My Name" and "I Invented Sex". Probably the weirdest one is "LOL :)", (that is actually the name of the song and in the chorus), about his girlfriend sexting him.
  • Teddy Pendergrass: "Close the Door". The 1996 version of The Nutty Professor has Sherman listening to this track and cheering Teddy on.
    • From the same film: "Somethin' 4 Da Honeyz" by Montell Jordan.

  So if a girly is lonesome \\

I think that she knows where to go when she wants some \\ Cuz Monty ain't here for nothing but I gotta little
Somethin' 4 da Honeyz

  • Chris Brown has a lot of these, especially on his latest albums. One song, "No Bullshit" is blatantly about this. The first two lines are "3 in the morning/You know I'm horny".
  • Gucci Mane's "Sex in Crazy Places," which also features Nicki Minaj, Trina, and Bobby V, making it the veritable "We Are The World" of songs about having sex on rollercoasters. What Do You Mean It's Not Awesome??
  • Ludacris' "Splash Waterfalls" alternates between sweet lovemaking and dirty sex. And it's pretty evident what "What's Your Fantasy" is about.
    • In case "What's Your Fantasy" isn't explicit enough, there's always the remix where Trina raps, "You can La-la-la-lick me from my ass to my clit..."
  • Too Close by Next. You'd be surprised to know the song was basically detailing a guy getting an erection at a nightclub -- and hoping to God the woman he was dancing with wouldn't know. He was a little too late for that:

 Step back, You're dancing kinda close

I feel a little poke coming through

On you

    • The fun part is that the quoted line isn't censored at all by most radio stations. A little cheery music goes a long way.
  • Parodied with "Ooh, Girl", an "honest R&B song" from Runaway Box.
  • Brian Mc Knight has a song that includes the lyrics "Let me show you how your pussy works/Since you didn't bring it to me first". The rest of the song is so dirty that he was approached to sing it at the porn industry's AVN Awards.
  • Mohombi's "Bumpy Ride": "I wanna boom bang bang with your body-o... Girl let me rock you rock you like a rodeo..."


Rap Edit

  • Kelis-"Milkshake"
  • From "Baby Got Back": something about an anaconda and buns.
    • "A word to the thick soul sistas/I wanna get with ya/I won't cuss or hit ya/But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna /FUCK/ 'Til the Break of Dawn/ Baby got it goin' on/A lotta simps won't like this song..."
    • "I'm long, and I'm strong, and I'm about to get the friction on".
    • Also "Ride", one of his later unsung singles.
  • There was a big fuss made about how Soulja Boy's "Crank That" had been played in public areas (such as at sporting events) as if it were perfectly clean, when it's really extremely lewd...which leads one to question the morality of the Moral Guardians, since while it is indeed an Intercourse with You song, it's so heavily coated with slang that it sounds like a bunch of gibberish to anyone who isn't already in the know as to what it means. In the quest to "save the children" from perversion, Moral Guardians become the biggest perverts of them all.
    • For those who genuinely don't know what it means... "Superman that hoe" refers to ejaculating on a woman's back so that the blanket is stuck in a manner resembling Superman's cape. The dance mimics the woman trying to get it off.
    • Actually, Soulja Boy himself has stated that the whole song was written with no meaning in mind, and he was rather disturbed by listeners interpreting it sexually.
  • "Boom Boom Boom" by the Outhere Brothers. Most obvious in the dirty version:

 Girl your booty is so round/I just wanna lay you down/Let me take you from behind/I won't cum until it's time/But if I cannot sleep with you/Maybe I could have a taste/Put your niney on my tongue/And your booty on my face

Ow, I came to make you shake it/Till you break it/Caress your body/until you're naked/Bend you over/Grab your shoulder/Slip my peter inside your folder/Make you sweat-a/Get you wet-a/Pump it faster to make it better/Dim the the lights then lock the room/Cos now it's time for me to hit that boom

  • 2 Live Crew's "Face Down, Ass Up." The title says it all.
    • Just about all of 2 Live Crew's songs fit into this trope in some way.
  • OutKast's "I'll Call Before I Come" is not about telephones.
  • Killer Mike's song "ADIDAS" with Big Boi and Sleepy Brown is not about a pair of sneakers.

 "I'll call before I come/I won't just won't pop up over, out the blue/No after you."

  • Pretty Ricky: "Grind on Me"

 Step 1, get kissin on me

Step 2, girl you killin me softly

Step 3, Now you see why you chose me

Step 4, and ooo you grindin with me

  • "Shawty's Over 9000" by BB & G-Wize, in addition to referencing the popular internet meme, is an example of this trope. And they got Bryan Drummond to supply his Vegeta voice for the intro an sampling.
  • "Candy Shop" by Fifty Cent ft. Olivia. Yet another song that uses "lollipop" to mean "penis".
  • In what must be the most blatant example ever, the song "Fuck Me On The Dance Floor" by Princess Superstar manages to push this trope so far that one starts wondering if it is using sex as a metaphor for dancing instead of the other way around, as is traditional.


Reggae/Ragga/Dancehall Edit

  • In these music style, this type of lyrics are referred to as "slackness", insinuating that an artist can't write decent lyrics and needs to get attention through controversy.
  • Yellowman, an ugly-as-hell 6'7" albino whose musical career centered around him setting himself up as a sex-god. Just listen to this.
  • Light-weight reggae band Inner Circle released "Sweat (A La La La La Long)", which somehow succeeded in Getting Crap Past the Radar to make its way - unedited - onto chart radio.
  • From the inimitable Shabba Ranks, Mr Loverman
  • Lady Saw began her career in the early 90's doing songs like "Stab Up de Meat". She has since moved on to singing about no less controversial but more socially important things like infidelity, AIDS and infertility.
  • Bob Marley. Stir it up. That is all.
  • Judge Dread [sic!], also known as the "King of Rude", is well known for writing innuendo-laden music. Unlike most of the examples here, it is always Played for Laughs. Just golisten!
  • I think this and this say it all... OK, maybe not. Trojan was the premier reggae label in the world between 1968 and 1975. They've issued 2 x-rated cd compilations.


Other Edit

  • Suck my dick, suck my motherfucking dick....suck my dick....etc.
  • "Give It To Me Baby" by Rick James.
  • ANY song by Swedish techno (camp) artist Gunther. Seriously, just watch.
  • Let Me Hit It by Sporty-O veils its true meaning pretty thinly, with a lot of "dropping".
  • "Toucha-Toucha-Touch Me" from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
    • Well, it is Rocky Horror, what did you expect?
    • I really don't think we need to actually choose a particular song for this effect, remove "Dammit/Janet" and it's pretty much the entire soundtrack.
    • Gives a whole new meaning to "Let's do the Time Warp again!" She bangs so good she bends spacetime.
  • Spoofed by Adam Sandler in "At A Medium Pace". Starts out nice and gentle ("Put your arms around me baby / Can't you see I need you so?") before getting to the point ("Spit on your hand and stroke my cock at a medium pace")...
    • Also "Food Innuendo Guy," a parody of filthy-blues style, composed entirely of...food innuendo.
  • This type of language was frequently used by Cole Porter in the 1920's, especially in songs like "Let's Misbehave".
    • While we're at it, how about "Let's Do It," in which he explains "Birds do it/ Bees do it/ Even educated fleas do it/ Let's do it/ Let's Fall in love."
    • "Too Darn Hot" from Kiss Me, Kate is pretty clear with lines like "According to the Kinsey report/ Every average man you know/ Much prefers to play his favorite sport/ When the temperature is low". Other versions considered more suitable for the public of the 40s and 50s (like the 1953 movie) substitute "the latest report" and "prefers his lovey-dovey to court" in to make it less obvious.
  • In Simon and Garfunkel's "Cecilia", while there isn't any question about what was going on ("Makin' love in the afternoon/With Cecilia up in my bedroom"), surprisingly few people catch on why a guy would wash his face after having sex.
    • The song came out in 1970, before most houses were air-conditioned. And it was the afternoon (hottest part of the day) up in his room (hottest part of the house).
    • According to rumor, "Cecilia" was the name of Paul Simon's dog.
    • "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" had the same rumor: Julio was supposedly a dog.
  • One of the more straight forward interpretations of Depeche Mode's "Behind The Wheel" is the song being about female domination.
    • "Master and Servant," on the other hand, is completely straightforward:

 "It's a lot like life/ This play between the sheets/ With you on top and me underneath/ Forget all about equality/ Let's play/ Master and servant."

    • It would be fair to argue that a good portion of Depeche Mode songs are in some way about sex. Dave Gahan is called Martin Gore's personal voyeur for a reason.
  • And, of course, Monty Python's classic "Sit On My Face". Given how long ago Monty Python started, they really pushed the envelope on what nudity and lewdness they could get away with on TV.
    • The FCC has specifically cited "Sit On My Face" as an example of what it considers to be indecent material.
  • Jonathan Coulton's song "First of May" has an innocent enough title. The chorus starts:

 Cause it's the first of May, first of May,

Outdoor fucking starts today.

So bring your favorite lady

Or at least your favorite lay.

    • Coulton has fun with this particular trope. Here's "Soft Rocked By Me".

 You will be soft rocked by me

Though it may take some time, I know eventually

You will be soft rocked by me

I use the passive voice to show how gentle I'll be

When I soft rock you

You will know it's true

That you've never been soft rocked 'til you've been soft rocked by me

  • "Shave 'Em Dry" by Lucille Bogan. From 1935. No, really (#6 on the list). More innocent time, my ass.
  • Bat Boy: The Musical features an interspecies orgy set to a catchy musical number, "Children, Children."
  • Perhaps the all-out dorkiest example: "Hyperlink" by Eiffel 65, an Intercourse with You song entirely in computer jargon. Seriously, listen for yourself (or read the lyrics).
  • Voltaire has a song about Data which uses every half-assed Techno Babble euphemism in the book... and then some.
    • Ah yes, the Sexy Data Tango. "...and cause a quantum singularity in your transwarp conduit"
  • "Ladies' Choice" from Hairspray. It's just one sex metaphor after another: "Hey little girl with the cash to burn/I'm selling something you won't return/Hey little girl take me off the shelf/Cause it's hard having fun playing with yourself," and then, "Hey little girl looking for a sale/Test drive this American male." IT NEVER ENDS. What makes it even better is hearing Zac Efron singing it in The Movie.
  • Leonard Cohen's (and everybody else's) "Hallelujah", though arguably it's a "no intercourse with you any more" song.:

 There was a time you let me know / What's really going on below / But now you never show it to me, do you?

And remember when I moved in you / The holy dove was moving too /And every breath we drew was Hallelujah...

    • Jeff Buckley's cover (as well as any cover-of-a-cover versions) plays up the metaphor even more, with the melody gradually building in pitch and intensity until it reaches the word "Hallelujah," before the much more subdued chorus.
    • While we're talking about Leonard Cohen, there's "Take This Waltz"

 In the cave at the tip of the lily/In some hallway where love's never been

    • Somewhat surprisingly, given his reputation, he manages to avert this trope more often than invoke it. He really doesn't beat around the bush, and often manages to insert extremely crude imagery into otherwise very pretty and tender ballads of lost love.

  I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel, you were talking so brave and so sweet. Giving me head on an unmade bed, while the limousines wait in the street.

  • "Under The Tree" from the musical Celebration.
  • "Wrapped Up In You" by Garth Brooks. It's right there in the title.
  • Catulli Carmina by Carl Orff, in its introductory chorus, has the boys and girls trade lines about Heavy Petting With You. Translations generally omit a lot of Orff's text to avoid having to translate words like "mentula". The Catullus poems used in that piece are mild both in comparison to this and some of the ones Orff didn't use, particularly Catullus 16 (NSFW in two languages!)
  • Inverted by The Village People, of all bands, with their album Sex over the Phone, which carries an underlying theme of 'safer sex' in light of the AIDS breakout in the gay community in The Eighties. The title track, obviously enough, is chiefly about phone sex, but true to the spirit of the trope, carries some graphic imagery in its lyrics: "I just touch my princess and I go crazy"
  • Lovage's sole album Music To Make Love To Your Old Lady By is entirely a tongue-in-cheek parody of this trope, juxtaposing smooth trip-hop with often, er, significantly less smooth innuendo "Licking your greasy spoon / jukebox playing my tune/ making out in your room / blowing up your balloon/ playing you like a bassoon"). That passage is sung by Mike Patton by the way, who intentionally makes it seem more creepy than sexy.
  • Roy Zimmerman's "Abstain With Me" parodies songs like this (in addition to being a satire on abstinence-only education).
  • French Kiss by Lil' Louis is an undisputed classic of Chicago house. The only vocals in the song are a woman in the throes of passion. The song also cuts out the kick drum and drops to a slow tempo in the middle, only to build and speed up back to full tilt for the climax. The more recent Drum & Bass bootleg remix by Ed Rush & Optical keeps the same structure, but peaks at a very, er, athletic 175 or so beats per minute.
  • The chorus of the Vocaloid song SPICE! leaves little to the imagination.

 Bitter and hot spice

I'll give it only to you now

My taste that leaves you dazed

Feel it with your body!

 Feel it more. You understand my love, don't you?

I'll exhaust you from beginning to end.

So show me your "special place,"

I won't let anyone else touch you there, because you're all mine. Isn't that great?

 Cinderella who lied too much seems to have been eaten by the wolf

What should I do? If I don't do anything, you too might be eaten someday

Before that happens, I will eat you

(Followed by the text "with a sexual meaning

  • Brazil has some genres which are mostly built on this. Most notably, funk carioca (a version of Funk that when is not about crimes, is about sex; "Injeção", sampled by MIA in "Bucky Done Gun",[1] has lyrics on medical injection... which are obviously about anal sex[2]) and axé music ("after nine months you see the result...").
  • Jace Everett's "Bad Things," used as the theme song for True Blood.
  • For speakers of Japanese, there's Himitsu no Karute, a well-done big band-esque jazz number with raunchy lyrics. Better still, it's an opening theme of an Eroge.
  • The Irish folk song Jolly Tinker has a line about the eponymous tinker and the woman of the house falling on a feather bed.
  • Cut Song Come Up And Try My New Parts from Repo! The Genetic Opera, where Amber Sweet tells Graverobber "I'll let you fuck my soul" and "I can take it baby / don't care where you put it / why don't you surprise me."
  • Lay Me Down by Australian folk group The Audreys is about a woman who wants a one night stand.
  • "Pony" by Casey Chambers. Very dirty:

 When I grow up I want a pony

I'm gonna ride him until dawn

I'm gonna brush his mane and feed him sugarcane

And keep him safe from the storm

 Hi my name is Chris fucking Donathon, don't get mad Jefree Star cuz I made you snort a lotta my cum while I fucked you in the ass...

Pulled up at a stoplight, did drugs on the dashboard, look at the mess we've made tonight

Kick off your stilettos (oh yeah)

Kick off your stilettos (oh yeah)

And fuck me in the back seat

F-f-f-fuck me in the back seat

  • Jeffree Star's 'Love Rhymes With Fuck You' is dripping with this. Literally. The opening line is You can fuck me till the sun comes up. And practically the entire last minute of the song is him yelling "Fuck me, fuck me, fuck me, fuck me, fuck me, fuck me!"
    • Don't forget 'Lollipop Luxury'.

 Fuck me, I'm a celebrity

Can't take your hands off me

I know you want to suck me,

What are you waiting for?

  • Everything ever recorded by Blood On the Dance Floor, with the exception of approximately... ooh... five or six songs in their entire discography. Some notable examples:
    • Teacher, teacher, teacher, I've been a dirty whore

 I want your nails on my back like nails on a chalkboard.

Teacher, teacher, teacher, keep me after class

I've been a bad boy, now take a paddle to my ass.

Innocent High

    • I'm gonna jizz all in your face,

 I'm gonna wreck this fucking place,

Pull my hair, smash the chair,

Break the bed and give me head!

Scream For My Ice Cream

    • I'm slamming bitches like Kong's slammin' barrels

 Fuck more wenches like I'm Captain Jack Sparrow

Cock so good I had to put it in a song

It's wrong, wrong, wrong like Gaga's got a ding dong!

It's On Like Donkey Kong

  • Popular English folk rockers Steeleye Span had a lot of fun with the whole thousand-year history of popular songs in English. With the whole history of English song to play with, they proved that a certain obsession with sex and a consequent need to Get Crap Past the Radar has always been a part of popular music. For instance, Drink Down The Moon (c. 1450), when you really listen to the lyrics, is not really about ornithology:

 And he tapped at the bush

And the bird it did fly in

A little above her lily-white knee;

Her sparkling eyes they didturn round

Just as if she had been all in a swoon;

And she cried, "I've a bird; and very pretty bird;

And he's pecking away at his own ground...."

  • Howlin' Wolf: "Crawling King Snake" and "Back Door Man". According to Wikipedia, the latter does not refer to what you think but "a man having an affair with a married woman, presumably while the husband is away at war, using the back door as an entrance & exit symbolically".
    • "Crawling King Snake", however, refers exactly to what you think it does.
    • Well, the men don't know, but the little girls understand.
      • There are more examples than could be listed here. Let's just say 30's blues and jazz lived off this trope.
        • For example, anything by Blind Willie McTell (I'm lovesick baby, you got me graveyard bound/gonna make you moan like a graveyard hound IIRC), Terraplane Blues By Robert Johnson (I'm gonna get deep down in this connection/keep on tangling with your wires), and John Lee Hooker's Boom Boom (entirety of)
      • The last third of Ray Charles' "What'd I Say" is essentially a session of rough sex set to music, and it got broadcast on TV in an era where sitcom couples had separate beds!
      • And then there's Slim Harpo's "I'm a King Bee," not too famous in itself but known through covers by Muddy Waters, the Stones, the Doors, the Grateful Dead, and Pink Floyd. (Yes, that Pink Floyd--it was in the pre-Piper days when they were basically a blues cover band.)
  • "When You Become Naked" by indie furry band Sub-Level 03. Let's just say this: it mentions leather, handcuffs, and hanging from harnesses.
  • "The Bad Touch" by The Bloodhound Gang includes the well-known refrain "You and me baby ain't nothing but mammals / So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel." Many of their other songs use this trope in rather disturbing ways.
    • It's been parodied by Machinima artist Nyhm in his song "Hard Like Heroic," which is made up of euphemisms for sex combined with World of Warcraft references. "Hard like heroic, more than you can handle / So let's do it like a Druid in the general channel."
    • An even more over-the-top example by the same band is "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo". Each line is a different euphemism for sex. At the end, they stop being even vaguely subtle and repeat the line "Put the you-know-what in the you-know-where!" repeatedly, up to the last chorus.
    • "3.14" has a rather clever title. The song also includes the double entendre "You know what I really want in a girl? Me," and is prefaced by a recorded call from the singer to his mother, asking for her help in finding words that rhyme with "vagina".
  • Venezuelan group Los Amigos Invisibles loves doing this, as half of its songs are peppered with thinly (and not-so thinly) veiled and untranslatable innuendo. Memorable ones are "Ponerte en cuatro" (whose chorus makes a reference to the sexual position otherwise known as "doggie style", but the verses try to hide it...not) and "El Disco Anal", who is a long plead of a man to his woman for permit him to "use the backdoor", if you missed the subtlety in the title.
  • "Why Don't We Get Drunk (and Screw)" is a fan favorite at Jimmy Buffett concerts.
    • Buffett himself said he wrote the song after hearing one too many innuendo songs and decided to write one removing all doubt.


Fictional Examples Edit

  • One of the best parodies comes, naturally, from South Park, when Cartman becomes a Christian rock musician. All of his songs are about loving Jesus...that way ("I want to get down on my knees and start pleasing Jesus, I want to feel his salvation all on my face... ").
    • Makes more sense and possibly removes at least some of the Squick factor when you remember that his songwriting technique consists of nothing more than taking love songs and replacing some of the words, such as "baby" with "Jesus".
  • "Sex Hair" from Parks and Recreation.
    • At one point, the heroes of King Dork acquire a Christian stoner band member whose songs are like this, and the Plucky Comic Relief tells the audience at one point, just to make sure they're not confused, "This song is about the face of God."
  • In the classic Mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap, interviewer Marty comes upon Nigel composing a lovely, quiet song, which Nigel says is inspired by Mozart and Bach. When Marty asks its name, Nigel replies "Well, this piece is called "Lick My Love Pump"."
    • Well, Mozart did write "Lick me in the arse"...
    • Is this actually considered fictional anymore? Spinal Tap's released a few albums and had tours since the fake movie.
  • Not to mention that many of the songs by Spinal Tap feature ridiculously extended and very transparent metaphors for sex, making fun of the trope. Such as "Sex Farm".
  • "You make me com... plete."
    • To a lesser extent in the same song:

 The Moon to the tide

I can feel you inside

    • Tara's expression at that line makes it clear that she knows exactly how you're gonna take that.
  • Aldous Huxley, after mysteriously averting this trope in Brave New World (in which little children are taught to engage in sexual play with each other), invoked this in Ape and Essence where the refrain of the latest popular song is, "Give me detumescence."
  • And of course, Family Guy gives us the Trope Namer illustrated at the top of this article.
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has a jazzy number called "A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love":

 Oh, come and stir my cauldron

And if you do it right

I'll boil you up some hot, strong love

To keep you warm tonight

 Doin' it, doin' it. D-d-Doin' it.

Should we break for lunch?

Nope! Let's keep doin' it, doin' it.

Someone's at the door.

I don't care!

We're doin' it, doin' it.

Wanna put on our hikin' boots?

Yeah, we'll wear them while we're doin' it, doin' it.

I like the rhythm, it is my method.

 Hey, Kendra

I been thinkin'

I gotta gotta gotta gotta get with you

I wanna get all up in your business girl

And make you feel real fine

Hey, Kendra

Come closer

I got myself a brand new rockin' horse

Why don't you come on here, mama, and rock it rock it all night long

 Rim licking/ Clit flicking/ You're the stuffing/ I'm the chicken/ Said we're clicking/ You're still licking/ Clock is ticking/ Stick your dick in

In this club they cannot tame us/ On the dancefloor tongue meets anus/ Boy I need you in my South Pole/ Put your star into my black hole

  • Not a full example, but the Dream Sequence music video 'Tongue-Tied' from Red Dwarf at one point has backing singers Lister and Rimmer singing "Reproductive system, baby!" complete with hip-thrusts.
  • All the background music from the 2001 film version of Josie and the Pussycats is like this (and NSFW at that).
  • Spoofed in Dave Barry's novel Big Trouble with the fictional hit "I Want Your Sex Pootie" by the Seminal Fluids. (The not-so-good movie version made this into a real song. His following novel, Tricky Business, gave "Sex Pootie" a Continuity Nod.)
  • The Onion Movie parodied this with the artist Melissa Cherry (a parody of Britney Spears) whose songs all sound extremely suggestive, yet she insists they're entirely innocent.
  • Parodied in the movie Semi-Pro, where the main character sings a song called "Love Me Sexy", asking women if they would like to Love, Lick and/or Suck Will Ferrel sexy.
  • On Bob's Burgers, one-time character Tabitha Johansson sings very unsubtle and creepy songs about her vagina that she insists are actually about whales.


Uncategorized Edit

  • Averted by Peaches in "Fuck the Pain Away", lampshaded in "Back it Up" (You know what I'm talking about, right? Because it can only be one thing, you know.), and played straight in most of her songs. Seriously, sex is pretty much all she sings about.
    • Lampshaded again in "Stick it to the Pimp" (You wanna stick it/I wanna stick it/I bet you thought I was gonna say in..but I'm not." From threesomes to going solo. Her last two albums released were titled "Impeach My Bush" and "I Feel Cream", respectively.
  • A fair chunk of the song catalogue by Mylene Farmer, although special credit goes to "Déshabillez-moi", "Que mon c?ur lâche", "Libertine", "Pas de Doute" and "Pourvu qu?elles soient douces".
  • Some teeny nonsense were on Top of the Pops with a song called "Sex On The Beach", with the chorus start "I want to have sex/on the beach..." and claimed it was just a Californian term for innocent fun. They fooled no-one.
  • Australia, meanwhile, has the Hunters and Collectors' "Throw Your Arms Around Me", containing such lines as "You will make me call your name, and I'll shout it to the blue summer sky", "shed your skin and let's get started", and the always disturbing "I will squeeze the life out of you". So... yeah.
    • "I will kiss you in four places"
  • Live's "The Dolphin's Cry" opens with a stanza referring to sex with imagery: "The way you're bathed in light / Reminds me of that night / God let me down into your rose / Garden of trust"
    • "Deep Enough", "All Over You", "Hero Of Love", "She" and "Like I Do" come to mind here.
  • Roxette's "Sleeping in my Car": "Staying in the back seat of my car, making love."
  • The Serge Gainsbourg/Jane Birkin duet "Je T'Aime... Moi Non Plus". The song featured some very realistic heavy breathing by Ms. Birkin and some even speculated that the two were having sex whilst the song was being recorded. Banned in many countries at first and condemned by the Vatican, you don't need to speak French to understand what it's about.

  Part of the original lyrics: "I go and I come, in between your loins..."

    • Even more blatant is the Pet Shop Boys cover, with the female part sung by Sam Taylor Wood and the male part sung by a computer. And there is no less an amount of sex noises. Pushes it even further into Nightmare Fuel territory, that.
  • Depending on who you ask, "Turning Japanese" by The Vapors is about the funny faces people make while... lonely. Either that or it's a love song and the phrase just popped into the lead singer's head one day. It would be more believable if the song lyrics didn't include talking about how many pictures the singer has of his love and how he "sits there staring and there's nothing else to do"...
    • The band has stated that that isn't what the song is supposed to be about, but they find the idea hilarious.
    • I have read in other places that he was dating a Japanese girl at the time ...
  • Pretty much everything done by Sophie B. Hawkins. With lines like "Oh Lord, my God/When you get hard/How can I stop/How can I not?", she's not anyone's definition of subtle about it, either.
    • Sophie's "Only Love" is tame compared to the stuff off Timbre, like "32 Lines" and "Your Tongue Like the Sun in My Mouth." ("And I rode his joy like a child on a merry-go-round / I was young in his eyes, I was sweet on his thighs / I was profound")
  • Tonio K had a song that was up front. "Sex With You."

 "I think I'm supposed to have sex with you / Pretty sure I'm supposed to have sex with you..."

  • Most of VH-1's "40 Most Awesomely Bad Dirty Songs Ever" contain loads and loads of, uh, Fetish Retardant. The top slot, "Physical" is a big example - you wouldn't associate Olivia "Sandy Olsson" Newton-John with sex, and the video with fat people exercising makes it even harder to discern.
    • They used Olivia Newton-John's "Physical" in some Fitness-themed animatronic Care Bears dolls. How the hell did THAT slip past the Moral Guardians?
  • Koda Kumi. Ima Sugu Hoshii. Full stop.
    • Kuu is well known for this. "JUICY", "Cherry Girl", "Hot Stuff", "Shake It", "NO TRICKS", and "Get It On" and more.
  • Subversion in the Dresden Dolls song "First Orgasm", which one would naturally assume to be about masturbation but is really about the soul crushing emptiness of going through your everyday life knowing you're completely alone.
    • "Coin Operated Boy", on the other hand, is a fantasy of a toy that could simulate not only sex but a whole relationship. So, even more on the loneliness theme, but still fits the page.
  • Joe Jackson's song "Biology", which features the lyrics:

 Your biology lesson starts here

and first of all we should make it clear

That the species known as males have these little white things with little white tails

Which multiply and start to shout,

"It's getting crowded down here! Let us out!"

Once relieved, they start again

It's not a process controlled by the brain...

    • ... ... ... ... ... W-O-W.
  • "Hokey Pokey (The Ice Cream Song)" by Richard Thompson is... not really about ice cream.

 Well, some like it round, and some like it flat

And some like a poke or two

But everybody runs for Hokey Pokey

It's the natural thing to do

    • And "Fully Qualified To Be A Man" is... slightly less subtle.

 Now you're my favorite subject or two

I've been really boning up on you...

    • Subverted by "Read about Love," where the narrator is describing sex in technical terms not out of coyness but because all he knows of sex is what he's gotten from porn and sex-advice books

 When I touch you here it's supposed to feel nice,

That's what it said in reader's advice.

I've never been to heaven,

But at least I've read about love.

  • Just about every song on Beck's Midnight Vultures exemplifies this.
  • Much of The Donnas early work was wonderfully blatant, such as "Leather on Leather", "You Make Me Hot", and a lyric from their cover of "Wig Wam Bam":

 I don't want to be a bother to much

I just wanna be the girl you wanna touch

You make me cream in my jeans...

    • Their very first highest charting single was "Take It Off". This was lampshaded by a DJ in the Vermont area several years ago who played a song by Bush afterward and then made the smartass comment of that being "what you get when you Take It Off".
    • And "40 Boys in 40 Nights" is, well, titled accurately.
  • This. Just this.
    • NSFW, if you hadn't guessed. "Genitalia!"
  • It's hard to mistake the subject of Toni Braxton's "You're Making Me High", which features a variety of sexually explicit lyrics and an orgasm in the bridge.
  • Bill Chase's "Get It On".
  • T. Rex's "Bang a Gong (Get It On)".
    • And "Mambo Sun." And "Jeepster." And "Planet Queen." And "Mystic Lady." And both versions of "Buick Mackane." And "The Slider." And "Twentieth Century Boy." And "Tenament Lady." And "Hot Love." And...well...really, all of them!
  • Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' song "Babe, You Turn Me On." An incredibly touching and beautiful song that just happens to be full of single entendres.
    • Nick Cave's other band, Grinderman, have the "No Pussy Blues". When Nick Cave was asked for the meaning behind it, he replied simply "It's about not getting any pussy."
  • Quite a few songs by the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Most notably "Over and Over".
  • Alecia "Pink" Moore likes to make liberal use of this trope.
    • "Fingers". "When it's late at night and you're fast asleep / I let my fingers do the walking / I press record, I become a fiend / And no-one else is watching"
    • "Oh My God" is as clearly about sex as one can get without outright stating it, as it is breathed more than sung and starts out with the words "Put me on the table / make me say your name". The kicker about it relates to the interludes provided by female rap artist Peaches - In the last 40 seconds of the song, she and Pink suddenly start replying to each other's sex-charged statements, rapidly ejecting the Y-chromosome from the implied activities.
    • "U + Ur Hand"
  • Several Goldfrapp songs, a prime example being "Strict Machine": "I get high off a buzz and a rush when I'm plugged in you..."
    • Don't forget about "Twist", either. "Put your dirty angel face/between my legs and knicker lace." Most of their album Black Cherry is like this.
    • Anyone listened to "Ooh La La" lately? Although, like a heap of their songs, it barely makes sense, but the lead singer said it was about wanting a sex minus a relationship, and the lines "You wanna be so mean/You know I love to watch".
    • "A little death/ Occurred so sweetly/ My mind will leave this world without you..." No prizes for guessing what that one's about.
  • The Dave Matthews Band song "Crash Into Me" features the line "Hike up your skirt a little more and show your world to me." Not subtle.
    • The knowing grin he gives the camera while singing that line in the video is classic.
    • One could argue that the refrain, "When you come crash into me / And I come into you" is substantially less subtle.
    • The original version of this song is even less subtle, with lyrics about mutual masturbation
      • DMB has a lot of pervy songs. There's also "Say Goodbye" (the plot of which is "please please pretty please cheat on your SO with me tonight") and "When the World Ends" (nuclear holocaust schmuclear holocaust, let's get it on!).
      • Don't forget "My angel is a centerfold." Not directly about a sex act, though a few fantasized ones are mentioned. Still, I'm counting it.
  • "Peek-A-Boo" by Siouxsie and the Banshees. Namely the lyrics. "He gets out from the back door, she gets up from all fours." Yes the creeper loves watching doggy sex.
  • The second verse of "Give Me All Your Love" from The World Ends With You begins with the line "Fill me when you come inside". In the context of the game, the song is a generic battle theme, so, yeah.
  • Most people think the Stone Temple Pilots song "Sex Type Thing" is about this, but surprisingly enough, that's not the point. It's about the typical attitude of a rapist.
    • Especially easy to make the mistake when many of their songs are about or can be interpreted as being about sex (though some of them REALLY take some imagination, given how unclear the meaning of their lyrics usually are)
    • As one reviewer pointed out in the case of STT, "it has a lyric so clumsy it comes across as mysogynist."
      • But as stated above, that was their point.
  • The song "I Wanna Do You Slowly" from Keating! The Musical is a reference to an actual Paul Keating quote.
  • Weird Al's "The Alternative Polka" is a polka medley that primarily consists of snippets of songs that, taken out of context, sound dirty. Some of the snippets are even dirty when not taken out of context.
  • Faith Hill. "Love The Way You Love Me". That is all.
  • The Tragically Hip song "Lake Fever" contains the clinically-poetic (and strangely arousing) line "Or we could skip to the coital fury"
    • "You didn't say yes or no neither... your whispered hurry."
  • Neil Finn is the master of this. Specifically: "Fall At Your Feet" (I'm really close tonight/And I feel like I'm moving inside her), "Message To My Girl" (And there's nothing quite as real/As the touch of your sweet hand), Distant Sun (When you come around and spin my top, time and again, and later And I'm lying on the table, washed out in a flood), "Wherever You Are" (Restless and brave when laid upon suburban grass/Your timing is right/Remove the sad, persistent thought/Hold the course), "It's Only Natural" (You read me like a book/That's fallen down between your knees/Please, let me have my way with you), "Four Seasons in One Day" (You can take me where you will/Up the creek and through the mill and Sleeping on an unmade bed/Finding out wherever there is comfort, there is pain), and the entirety of the aptly-titled "When You Come."
  • Avril Lavigne plays with this trope in "Things I'll Never Say" with lyrics like "I wanna blow you ... away" and "I wanna see you go down ... on one knee."
    • As for her song "Hot", (I can hardly breathe/you make me want to scream.., And I will let you do anything/Again and again)
    • And Poe used that first one verbatim in "Angry Johnny" seven years earlier. Come to think of it, that whole song plays with it, since she is pretty definitely not talking about sex.
  • If the title Shut Up and Sleep With Me doesn't clue you in, go douse yourself with gasoline right now.
  • It's business! It's business TY-EYE-EM!!
    • How about "A Kiss is Not a Contract" - "Just because you've been exploring my mouth / Doesn't mean you get to take an expedition further south, no-o"
    • "Me and you / In the nude / If that's what / you're into!"
      • "I'm da King o'da BOOM-BOOM!!!"
  • Pulp's "This Is Hardcore" is six-and-half minutes of single entrendres so blunt that you start wondering if it's all supposed to be a metaphor for something else altogether.
    • The album's cover suggests it's about boredom with bad porn. "Oh, that goes in there, then that goes in there, then that goes in there, then that goes in there, and then it's over."
    • * Pretty much every other Pulp song. "I Spy" and "Babies", whilst not relatively speaking that explicit, are two of the most uncomfortable sex songs ever.
  • The Doors. Oh dear lord the Doors! "Light My Fire" is just one example: "Come on baby, light my fire / Try to set the night on fire." And of course "Alabama Song": "Show me the way to the next whiskey bar. / Oh, don't ask why." and then the line "Show me the way to the next little girl. / Oh, don't ask why."
    • Wasn't "Light My Fire" banned over in the UK for a while because of the innuendo?
    • "Alabama Song" is Older Than They Think: it comes from the Bertolt Brecht/Kurt Weill opera The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny and is sung by a group of prostitutes. The original second verse says "Show me the way to the next pretty boy."
      • Musically, the original "Alabama Song" is much more of an Intercourse with You - because it's sung in a such rocking, non-serious way.
  • The Outhere Brothers have a song that is both titled and contains a refrain that consists entirely of "I Wanna Fuck You In The Ass". Subtle? Not in the slightest.
    • For the record, the song is titled "Fuk U In The Ass", which isn't much different. The lyrics aren't exactly the picture of subtlety either.
    • "Boom Boom Boom!", by the same band, takes the concept of double-entendre and kicks it in the shins. We'd provide a link to the song, but it is ridiculously not safe for work.
      • Oddly, it's still popular at sporting events. Which gets... awkward.
        • They are probably playing the radio friendly clean version.
  • Neutral Milk Hotel has "King of Carrot Flowers Part 1." "This is the room one afternoon, I knew I could love you / And from above you how I sank into your soul / Into that secret place where no one dares to go." Sure, guys. Soul.
    • This one's pretty explicit, actually. "And we would lay and learn what each other's bodies are for."
      • "Oh Comely"... which has a line about his semen entering someone's ovaries.
  • Bang Camaro. "Gates of Love". The only lines are "First he pulls it out / Then he sticks it in / Now he starts you up / He takes you for a ride." Subtlety got bashed with a blunt object somewhere along the way.
    • If their songs in Rock Band show anything, it's that they like this trope a lot.
  • No Doubt. Most of the Rock Steady album was an innuendo of some form, subtle or not: "Start The Fire", "Making Out", "Detective", "Hey Baby" and "Underneath It All".
  • Back in the early 90s, Bell Biv De Voe (some of the remains of Boy Band New Edition after Bobby Brown went solo) put out a song called "Do Me". It was as subtle as a sledgehammer, with male grunting as the beat. The video was to the point as well.
  • And let's not forget Akinyele. A rapper from New York who had songs like "Fuck Me For Free" and "Vagina Diner". But his best known song was a ditty called "Put it in Your Mouth".
  • I have always been amazed at what Little Richard got away with in 1956. "Good golly, Miss Molly, you sure like to... 'ball'"???
    • That "ball" sounds a lot like something else...
    • They wouldn't let him use the original lyrics to some of his songs. For instance...

  Tutti frutti, loose booty / if it don't fit, don't force it / you can grease it, make it easy.

  • Melissa Etheridge, from "Nowhere to Go":

 We can talk until dawn

Or maybe something else

I'll leave the radio on

There's no one to hear

You might as well scream

    • Of course, Melissa being Melissa, there is also plenty of bitterness about lesbians not being accepted in that song.
  • More lesbian fun: k.d. lang, "Sexuality":

 How bad could it be

If you would lose yourself in me

How bad would it be

Sexuality

Release yourself upon me...

    • Then again, that album is entitled All You Can Eat...
  • Dynamite Hack has a song with the title "Marie"... and lyrics that solely consist of "She takes me in, she takes me out" for all of about 2 minutes, 30 seconds. Well done, gentlemen.
  • Mary Prankster's "Tits and Whiskey" and the catchy chorus "F** k me, F** k me, F** k me, F** k me, I am Ernie's Rubber Ducky"
  • "Flip Reverse It" by Blazin' Squad, memorably pointed out in one episode of Never Mind the Buzzcocks when they had a Blazin' Squadder on.
  • Or the "Hokey Pokey", that kid's party song? Unless I spelled it wrong on the search. C'mon, mass innuendo:

 You put your whole self (or whatever body part is the current verse) in

Your whole self out

In, out, in, out

Shake it all about!

    • THAT'S what it's all about?
  • At least in English, Utada Hikaru doesn't do subtle.
    • Just google her Exodus album. Go on, google it.
  • Turbonegro has such classics like "Stroke the Shaft", "I Wanna Come", "Wipe It 'til It Bleeds", "Train of Flesh", and "Good Head."
  • Keith Urban's "You Look Good In My Shirt" is a song of the morning after, if it isn't screamingly obvious, and "Raise the Barn" seems to be a song about partying with the guys...until you hit the bit about Hay Rolling.
  • Colbie Caillat's "Bubbly" is either the most innocent-sounding example ever, or a shining example of perversion potential that doesn't have anything to do with power. "I get the tinglies in a silly place...But we are hiding in a safer place. Under cover staying dry and warm, you give me feelings that I adore."
  • The Velvet Underground's "Here She Comes Now" may be an example; Lou Reed swears it's just about a woman walking into a room, and with all the dirty stuff around it people just assumed otherwise.
  • Sting has a bunch of these. Notable examples include "Brand New Day" (the end of the song is one giant list of sex euphemisms), "Desert Rose" (about a man hallucinating sex on a desert journey), and "You Still Touch Me" (man fantasizes about his ex).
  • Sparks frequently play with this, usually either by intentionally making the narrator seem something of a Casanova Wannabe or just placing it into some unusual context. For example, "Tryouts For The Human Race" is from the point of view of sperm preparing to fertilize an egg, "Who Don't Like Kids" is about a man who has a lot of sex with his partner because he loves being a new father (and is disinterested in the process itself), and "Baby Baby Can I Invade Your Country" is a sex-as-war metaphor that manages to make The Star Spangled Banner sound full of double entendre.
  • Canadian band The Barenaked Ladies were actually banned from some major-scale performance in the early 90s for their name, which is a very minor example of this trope. Of course, they're actually about as inoffensive as it gets, or were at the time anyways. They have been recording a few examples of this trope since then though, with "In the Car" from Stunt being a personal favourite example.
    • Regarding the name, the band has stated that they record at least one song on each album in the nude. Wouldn't have been so bad to hear, except that the TV show interviewing them then provided a picture. EWW!
      • As a note, though, they don't do that anymore. They stopped after (I think) Maroon. This means that they (thankfully) were never naked when recording either their holiday album or their children's album.
  • Cathy Dennis' "Touch Me (All Night Long)"
  • Electric Six likes this trope. Two notable examples are "Danger! High Voltage" and "Gay Bar", although the latter isn't even trying to hide it, and the former isn't trying very hard. The music videos for the songs really must be seen to be believed.
    • Those are just the two most well-known examples. The all time best has to be "Remember when you told me that you wanna ride the rubber rocket/Remember when you told me that you want to/Plug my plug into your socket!"
    • It can get as blatant as "I rode a sex wave and washed up on your shore"
      • Tyler Spencer seems to try and see just how many absurd references to sex he can pack into an album. His side project Evil Cowards has a song called Sex Wars which is literally nothing but sex metaphors done up in war lingo.
    • "My baby don't need no vibrator... no electric entertainer tuna investigator."
  • Semisonic's "Get a Grip": if you aren't getting laid, don't be glum; masturbate.
    • From "Chemistry": "So for awhile we conducted experiments / in an apartment by the river road / And we found out that the two things we put together / had a bad tendency to explode."
  • "Himerus and Eros" by the Spill Canvas is pretty blantant once you listen to it. [1]

 I hope to god I mean a little more than the sounds that escape you're tired four am lips. Oh I wish I meant a little more than a symphony of heavy breathing and the friction of hips.

    • It's not so much, "Let's have sex!" though, it's more like the singer's saying, "Let's have a relationship!" and the girl's saying, "...yeah, no."
    • That's not the only one. "Teleport A & B" ("Hypothetically if you were point A / And theoretically if I was point B / We would be, we would be frantically melting / Into one massive point that would overcome anything") and "Hush, Hush" ("Your heart is charcoal, smoking black / Why don't you just tie the mattress to your back?") come immediately to mind.
  • Edguy's "Lavatory Love Machine" is about screwing a stewardess in the bathroom of a plane while it crashes. Tobias Sammet has a strange sense of humor ...
    • Also, "Rise of the Morning Glory" from the very same album is about the glory of the morning hardon. They also have less subtle songs in the same area, including "Fucking with Fire", "Catch of the Century", "Rocket Ride" and "Sex Fire Religion". And, "Lucifer in Love" might deserve a little mention as well, as it's a midintro containing moanings by the devil (which are rumored to be a slowed down recording of one of the band members actually having sex).
  • Reproduction. That is all.

 Reproduction, reproduction!

Put your pollen tube to work.

Reproduction, reproduction!

Make my stamen go berserk.

Reproduction!

I don't think they even know what a pistil is!

I got your pistil right here...

Where does the pollen go?

  • Roisin Murphy's "Night of the Dancing Flame". Specifically, With my head up held high/wish I could keep walking on by/but I found myself drawn to you/and let you do what you wanna do/you had your wicked way/there on the site of the dancing flame." God knows what that dancing flame is...
    • Also, "Sow Into You", and that is the correct spelling. It combines sex with a farming analogy...
    • And can we forget "Off On It"? Exactly what it sounds like, with the added bonus of being about kinky sex: "You're there, tied to the chair/ You're going nowhere/ Might you be getting off on it?"
  • And then there's the Matt Nathanson song "Come On, Get Higher", which gets a lot of airplay on soft rock and easy contemporary stations. On the face of it, it sounds like a sweet love song, and perhaps it is. But let's just say that, among other things, the way the song uses the word "come" suggests a much less family-friendly spelling.
    • I miss the pull of your heart/I miss the sparks on your tongue/I see angels and devils/And god when you come/...on! Hold on! Hold on! Hold on!
      • Arguably it's in the same category as the aforementioned "Crash Into Me". Unquestionably dirty, but goes unnoticed unless the listener's really paying attention, solely because it is a sweet love song.
  • There's also the radio hit "Sex on Fire" by Kings of Leon which, apart from sounding eerily like a mad scientist secretly cloned Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, is entirely about how great the singer's object of affection is in bed. There's really no attempt to hide it (just look at the title!), so perhaps this is a case of Refuge in Audacity. Great guitar hook, though, not to mention a big sing-along for bar bands.
    • This actually heightens the Bruce Springsteen connection - his similarly named song "I'm on Fire" isn't very subtle about what he's singing about, and yet it pops up as department store muzak all the time. In this case, the slow, melodic music helps conceal the fact that he's really talking about being sexually frustrated.
  • Lily Allen's "Not Fair". The song's about how her boyfriend's a really nice guy, but he just isn't that good in the bedroom. No euphemisms here...
    • It doesn't contain euphemisms so much as is explcitly about that. It contains the lyric "I spent ages giving head!"
  • Almost every song by Mother Love Bone. Most notably "Holy Roller" and "Half-Ass Monkey Boy"
    • Culminating in "Captain Hi-Top":

 I'm the instigator of the "Me" Generation

The official semenator of the female population

  • "Total Control" by the Motels is extremely suggestive. I'm not actually sure that it's about sex, but the whole "I'd sell my soul for total control over you" thing is enough to make me extremely suspicious.
  • Berlin's "Sex (I'm a ...)", whose refrain is a male vocal repeatedly announcing "I'm a man" while the female vocal rattles off a list of sometimes disturbing responses: "I'm a goddess," "I'm a blue movie," "I'm a slut," "I'm your mother," "I'm a boy," etc.
  • "Moths" by Jethro Tull is a particularly beautiful extended metaphor using two moths drawn to a candle flame. On the other end of the tastefulness spectrum is their song "Hunting Girl", an uncomfortably explicit account of an upper-class woman forcing a servant into sex in the woods - using the tack of the horse she had been riding.
    • From the same album as "Hunting Girl" is "Velvet Green," which is about having sex in a field one night, only to leave the girl to walk home cold and alone. And the way the song repeats the opening verse, you can assume the speaker winds up doing it again, potentially to a different girl!
  • Steve Miller - "Really love your peaches / Wanna shake your tree."
  • Barry White's absence from this page can only be chalked up to "Being so obvious, everyone assumes he's there somewhere". His songs that weren't blatant come-ons, gushing about what great sex he and the song's subject have (or are about to have), or about afterglow...contained a spoken word prologue that covered one of the previous subjects.
    • Let's be honest. About a third of you out there (two thirds, if you're African-American) probably owe your conception to either him Marvin Gaye.
  • Shaggy's song, "It Wasn't Me". It was a song that was just about being caught by his girlfriend having sex with someone else. It didn't even bother to use metaphors! Yet it was still played A LOT on the radio!
  • The first lines of "Can't Hold Back" by Kaz James feat. Macy Gray pretty much give it away:

 "You are my sexy beast/My love machine/My man whore"

"I am your Freakazoid/Your bitch/Your trick- what, you want more, what?"

  • Duffy's song "Mercy". It's extremely popular, and the lyrics... ...well.
  • Lords of Acid, the infamously raunchy Belgian techno group, which combines raw, nasty chainsaw techno with equally raw and nasty lyrics. On a few songs (especially "Pussy"), there is some innuendo, but it's pretty much an afterthought. The only song that even comes close to playable on US radio is "Gimme Gimme", a song about a celebrity and a fan who are stalking each other.
  • Abney Park, "Love". Not subtle in the slightest, and clearly about rough sex.
  • Jackalope, "Feel It". Also not very subtle.
  • Incubus' "Stellar". The chorus: "How do you do it?/Make me feel like I do/How do you do it?/It's better than I ever knew". Also the end of the second verse: "It might be the only way/That I can show you how/It feels to be inside of you"
    • Also "Here In My Room". "Pink tractor beam into your incision" and "Love is a verb here in my room" come to mind.
    • "Southern Girl" has the line "We'll try each other on to see if we fit/ And with our roots become a tree/ To shade what we make under it."
  • Lil' Kim breathes this trope, to the point that her music videos are almost soft-core porn. The song "Queen Bitch" includes the line "...Got buffoons eating my pussy while I watch cartoons," and then there's "Custom Made," where a woman's orgasm is looped in the background. But let's not forget "How Many Licks", a duet with Sisqo (of "Thong Song" fame), where the video is a commercial for sex dolls!.
  • Fleetwood Mac, "Big Love". The lyrics are subtle, but the song itself sounds like softcore porn right down to Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks (or what looks like her, in the video) gasping over the instrumental portions. The live version from The Dance is fortunately a lot tamer (though Buckingham gets pretty into the performance).
    • It's actually Lindsay Buckingham and Lindsay Buckingham through a pitch shifter. Oh, and the live version is epic.
      • The self-love aspect you've just given the song has made it even creepier.
  • Darren Hayes, whether as a part of Savage Garden or in his solo work, occasionally plays with this trope. His first solo single was the incredibly unsubtle "Insatiable".
  • Of Montreal's latest album Skeletal Lamping has a lot of extremely bizarre and candidly sexual lyrics, though many of them are not in the least bit subtle. Some choice lines include "Our bodies became one and then we so really turned on / Became a freaky permutation, something like Voltron" ("For Our Elegant Caste") and "Lover face, wanna make you ejaculate till it?s no longer fun" ("Plastis Wafer").
  • "Red Light District" by Porcelain and the Tramps, (which if you couldn't guess) is about prostitutes getting men to "use their services", so to speak, and includes lines such as "9 inch heels come marching in / to please a black tied dirty old man", "She'll give it up / if you wanna pay up", and "I'll make you feel right / so I'll spread my legs and just let go".
    • Basically, anything by Porcelain and the Tramps is either this (e.g. the aforementioned) or is lyrically explicit (Could a song called "Fuck Like a Star" be about anything else?).
  • The IOSYS song "Border of Ecstasy." Complete with moaning in between verses.
  • Note that this is the censored version- the uncensored flash...Well, it includes Yuyuko and Yukari eating a popsicle and having white ice cream on their faces. That's just in the first 20 seconds. It gets even more blatant when the moaning starts. You get to see exactly who is moaning, and why.
  • Every song from Fall Out Boy's album From Under the Cork Tree contains innuendo except for one - because the sex in that one is spelled out in the title ("I Slept With Someone In Fall Out Boy"). The band threw a fit when Kidz Bop tried to put "Dance, Dance" on one of their albums, because apparently they were uncomfortable with kids singing the bridge: "Why don't you show me the little bit of spine / You've been saving for his mattress / I only want sympathy in the form of you / Crawling into bed with me."
    • There's almost one song per album that belongs on this page. Most notably, "Thnks fr th Mmrs" and "Bang the Doldrums" (This is a love song in my own way/Happily ever after below the waist...)
  • Not only does Rob Zombie begin most of his songs with a woman moaning, but the song "Pussy Liquor" raises a few eyebrows.
  • Mindless Self Indulgence's "Get it up". Just take a look at the chorus: "I wanna make some babies / I wanna get it on / I wanna make you horny / But I can't get it up"

  All the songs by MSI, pretty much. "I don't want to be the one who's touchin' me when I whip my meat out, trapped in the room when I start to beat it," (Capitol P), "5... Year... Old... Panty shot, can't complain, I didn't even touch her, so I can't be blamed..." (Panty Shot), etc., etc...

    • "Dig me now, and fuck me later. And sing it to the tune of 'faggot, faggot, faggot'".
  • It's very strange that this list has gone on without the mention of Saving Abel's "Addicted". Listen to the beginning: "I'm so addicted to/all the things you do/when your rolling 'round with me/in between the sheets." If that isn't enough, then there's this: "How can I make it through/all the things you do/when your rollin round with me." Then they just yell out "Im so...Addicted to you..." Wonder why...
    • I have to point out that the above quoted lyrics are the edited version played on top 40 stations. The unedited version is even more blatant in the chorus: "I'm so addicted to/all the things you do/when you're goin' down on me/in between the sheets."
  • Ted Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever": "Well, I make a pussy purr with the stroke of my hand / They know they're gettin' it from me / And they know just where to go when they need their lovin' man / They know I'm doin' it for free"... Nope, nothing sexual there.
    • Even more so, how about "Wango Tango," the song that is openly and unapologetically about cunnilingus.
  • Gym Class Heroes, "Clothes Off!!" (which is particularly blatant about it) and "Cookie Jar". The title of "Cupid's Chokehold" made it sound like one of these, but it's actually a pretty straightforward love song. Huh.
  • Tom Waits, "Ice Cream Man" - "Clickin' by your house about two forty-five/With a sidewalk sundae strawberry surprise/I got a cherry popsicle right on time/A big stick, mamma, that'll blow your mind." The rest of the song is just about as blatant.
    • "Pasties & a G-String (at the Two o'Clock Club)" is basically a narrative about habitually going to strip clubs. Granted, it's more about turn-of-the-century burlesque shows, but the filth is there.
    • "Gotta get behind the mule / In the morning and plow."
  • In the not-even-trying-to-be-subtle category, there's Steve Goodman's "Wonderful World of Sex" ("I'm concave/And you're convex/Welcome to the world of sex"), and "Men Who Love Women Who Love Men" ("There are those that make love to machines/That don't talk back and are easy to clean/And in the bar with a bottle of scotch/There are those that would rather just watch".)
  • Lunachicks' "Buttplug". Yes, "Buttplug".
  • The James Bond theme "Diamonds Are Forever" is filled with innuendo("Diamonds are forever/They are all I need to please me/They can stimulate and tease me"). Shirley Bassey was even asked to sing thinking about male genitals ("Diamonds are forever/Hold one up and then caress it/Touch it, stroke it and undress it").
  • The Inkubus Sukkubus song "Intercourse With The Vampire" must win the award for the sheer number of different uses of this trope within one song. Only a British band could ever achieve that level of innuendo.

 Come and kneel, boy, before me,

kiss my sacred altar.

Come to me like a Ram, to the slaughter.

Feel my poison sting.

Tonight I'll spread my ... wings!

  • "Better Than Me" by Hinder. "Guilt kicks in and I start to see/The edge of the bed/where your nightgown used to be" followed by "If there's one memory I don't want to lose/That time at the mall/You and me in the dressing room" makes it seem like the only memories he wants to remember are of the sex, but he realizes the girl's too good for him. Also: "I really miss your hair in my face/And the way your innocence tastes" probably throws everyone off.
    • Hinder seems to like this trope. "Get Stoned" offers sex, among other things, as a way to help patch up an argument in a troubled relationship ("We could end up making love instead of misery / Cause the sex is so much better when you're mad at me", references to make-up sex), while at the other end of the spectrum is "Room 21", which details the singer getting picked up by an unnamed woman at a bar and his wanting to encounter her again afterward.
  • "Don't think too hard just bust that kick, I wanna take a ride on your disco stick." And Lady Gaga, that's not even the worst of your "Love Game."
    • "I Like It Rough", "Shake Your Kitty", "Fancy Pants", "Kaboom", "Fever"... yeah, this could go on forever.
    • It can be estimated that 90% of Lady Gaga's songs fall under this, especially "LoveGame", Bad Romance, Summerboy, and "Teeth" ("I just want your sex," and "Take a bite of my bad girl meat.")
    • "Pokerface":

 I won't tell you that I love you

Kiss or hug you, because I'm bluffing

With my muffin, I'm not lying

I'm just stunning with my love glue gunning

    • One of Gaga's best examples of this trope comes from the Christmas song she wrote, "Christmas Tree":

 Light me up, put me on top, let's

Fa la la la la, la la la la

The only place you'll want to be

Is underneath my Christmas tree

  • "Sex With You" by King Missile lampshades it, surprisingly-- the singer mentions sex, and then goes on to list all the other things he'd like that day, like a shower, going to see a movie, some food, sleep...
  • Jerry Lee Lewis played tons of those during the 50's. Especially "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On" and "Great Balls of Fire".
  • The Whitest Kids U' Know have a few songs like these, especially in their first two seasons. "We Gon' Make Luv (Until You Wake Up)" is a pseudo-R&B number about date rape, and "Totally Gay for America"...well, take a look at some of the lyrics:

 From the east to the west, from the north to the south

I'd gladly bend down and take Florida in my mouth

  • "I Get Off" by Halestorm doesn't mention sex specifically, but the subject knows she has a peeper ("You don't know that I know/You watch me every night/And I just can't resist the urge/To stand here in the light"), refuses to close the curtains ("And I could close the curtains/but this is too much fun"), and likes the idea a little too much ("I get off on you/getting off on me" and the whole of the 2nd verse).
    • There's also the lyrics "It's a give and take kind of love we make". Though the video kind of has a different meaning from the song (probably for obvious reasons).
  • "Striptease" by Hawksley Workman. Technically about wanting Intercourse with You rather than actually engaging in it, but close enough.
  • Frank Zappa's "Stick It Out," from the notoriously profane Joe's Garage Acts 1, 2, & 3 is an incredibly obvious example of this trope. It starts out with "Fuck me, you ugly son of a bitch" in German, because the titular Joe has been enticed into the Church of Appliantology, led by L. Ron Hoover, the primary tenet of which is that:
    • "A Latent Appliance Fetishist" is a person who refuses to admit to his or herself that sexual gratification can only be achieved through the use of machines... Get the picture? (NOT IN THE SONG: getting the machines, however, requires learning a foreign language, because "the cute ones come from there" and dressing up as a housewife.)
      • It gets more profane, ending with the German equivalent of "Don't get no jizz up on that sofa, sofa," before going through the whole song again in English... And did I mention the song is sung from the perspective of a man who is trying to pick up a household appliance for the purposes of sex? He then breaks it in a golden shower in the following song, "Sy Borg", also an example of this trope, where he has sex with the appliance and the appliance's Gay Bob Doll, and after the breaking of the appliance, he is sent to prison to be "plooked" by his fellow inmates. The album is rightly regarded as a prime example of Zappa's composing talent and songwriting talent, and you all should go buy it.
        • Don't bend over if you are smart!
    • Frank's Sheik Yerbouti (try spelling this title fast...) album also uses this trope heavily. The very first song is titled "I Have Been In You", which is Exactly What It Says on the Tin, and believe it or not it's actually one of the tamer songs on the album.
  • The Cars had "Tonight She Comes," and yes, it does mean that definition of the word.
  • Third Eye Blind has a couple: "1000 Julys" ("Feral days and I'm sex crazed/I put it in with my animal ways") and "An Ode to Maybe" ("If I could bottle my hopes in a store-bought scent/They'd be nutmeg peach and they'd pay the rent/And I'd ride a horse, and I'd teach a course/On how I got to be a star-crossed pimp")
    • Semi-Charmed Life is also pretty explicit, containing lyrics such as "She comes round and she goes down on me" or "how do i get back there to the place where i fell asleep inside you" and "Those little red panties they pass the test /Slides up around the belly /Face down on the mattress." As a result, these lyrics (and the references to snorting crystal meth -- "I hit a bump again and a bump again") are often cut, muted, or backtrack-scrambled for censorship reasons on both radio and music video versions.
  • Loads of eurobeat songs do this. E.G.:

 Touch my soul and touch my body, baby/Honey honey need your sexy toy(need for joy)/I wanna give you kisses, baby/Wanna wanna feel you inside me

    • Mike Skanner - "Atomic Playboy" (one of the most blatant examples:

 Boom boom boom like a hammer on a nail / Then you laugh laugh like an alligator in the sun (Boom)/ Down down down I wanna go so deep inside you / Then you'll fly high high with your finger to the sky... Put put put put your finger in my body / And then lick, lick, everywhere you wanna lick (boom)/Cum, cum, cum, now you're cummin' pretty soon / oh baby feel the heat that I'm spitting over you/

    • Ely Kotero - "Sexy Love Banana":

  Sexy love banana / Move it all up and down and all around / Show me your havana / I want your blackjack inside of me /

    • Cindy's "Push Me Boom Boom", "Jammin' Spanish Men", and "Sex On The Beach" are all about this.
    • Betty Blue - Lollipop Banana. Uses Lyrical Dissonance to good effect:

  "Lollipop, lollipop banana, cum on cum on cum on cum on, push it higher... playing with your rocket, baby light my fire /... keep on keep on keep on keep on, pussy fire... playing with my socket, baby feel desire"

    • "Dum Dum Pistol" is about oral sex.
    • Dave Rodgers - Love In The Elevator
    • Leslie Hammond - Feel My Body and My Soul:

  Feel my body and my soul / Move your body up and down tonight / Push your finger in my hole! / Do you really want to hurt me? / Feel my body and my soul / Move your legs inside my own tonight / Feel the power of my (w)hole! / Do you really want to hurt me now?

    • Donna - Hot Hot

  If you wanna be with me, pleasure's guaranteed / There's no way I'll let you down this time / Got to feel your body heat, making love is sweet / Boy you better fill me up this time

  Made up for love / With your secret down inside / You're my beautiful toy / Such a beautiful girl

    • Marko Polo's "Stop Your Self Control" isn't much better:

  I want / You to be my stripper / And take off all your clothes / In the dark

    • "Take My Hammer" by Jeff Driller. Need I say more?
    • "Street Boy" by Harry Ken is about gay prostitution.
    • Niko - Let's Go Wild
    • "Flash in the Night" by Flashman:

 Face to face with your eyes in mine

They burn my soul inside, and I cannot fight

Every time you cum it's a flash in the night

  • "Peaches & Cream" by 112. Erotic Eating, indeed.
  • "Make It Wit Chu". At least they're not operating under false pretenses.
  • "Playmate of the Year" by Zebrahead celebrates the annual arrival.
  • Massive Attack's "Inertia Creeps", in which the words "she comes" are repeated about 50 times.
    • I digress, it's actually only 16 times. I counted. Probably not the best thing to do while Driving Stick
  • Interpol have a song entitled "Stella Was A Diver and She Was Always Down", in which a fat blue serpent swells. Subtle.
    • How about "No I In Threesome?". "Babe, it's time we give something new a try", much?
    • Also, "Say Hello to the Angels" - "I can't control the part of me that swells up when you move into my airspace" is pretty obvious.
  • Hecate, an industrial/dark electronic artist, released an album called Nymphomatriarch which consisted exclusively samples of herself having sex with Venetian Snares (the artist, not some Italian drums) while they were on tour together. It's one of the best-known works of either artist to date.
  • "Birthday Sex" - doesn't get much more blatant then that.
    • BIRFDEY SAX
  • My Dying Bride does this a decent amount. The song "Your Shameful Heaven" was not just about sex, but fetishy sex. "Your skin may burn, and your wounds bleed / But the only real ache is between your legs"
  • Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story parodies the hell out of this one, particularly "Let's Duet" ("In mah dreams, you're blowin' me... some kisses").
  • The lyrics of many traditional ballads put modern songs to shame. For example, "The Bonny Black Hare" contains such lines as "Well, I laid this girl down with her face to the sky/And I took out my ramrod and my bullets likewise" ""Oh, my powder is wasted and my bullets all gone/My ramrod is limp and I cannot fire on" (Three guesses as to what the titular Bony Black Hare is).
  • Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera has two songs with just lovely sex metaphors ("Music of the Night" and "The Point of No Return"), and one with no metaphors at all ("Down Once More"). "When will the blood begin to race, the sleeping bud burst to bloom"... really. Well, Phantom's opera is called Don Juan Triumphant. Not to forget the "You have come here for one purpose and one alone" bit just before "Music of the Night". Please, has anyone ever heard the words to "The Point of No Return"? It's not even innuendo anymore, it's completely blatant. Also, the title song has its moments, as well.
  • For the love of all that is holy, there is a song actually called "Smell Yo Dick." Because vaginas stink or something and the singer can tell who her man has cheated with by the smell. Only if you aren't cleaning properly!
  • "Satisfaction" by Benny Benassi, a pretty obvious example
    • The censored version of the music video: hot girls with power tools. Uncensored? Intersplices actual pornography between the power-tool girl clips. And this song made DJ Hero. Huh.
  • "Shake It" by Metro Station. Most people think it's about dancing, but then again most people don't pay attention to the lyric. Incidentally, the band is led by Miley Cyrus' brother, Trace. I shit you not.
    • Pretty much Metro Station's entire discography is about sex,not to mention the number that are about underage sex (We're one mistake from being together/Let's not ask why it's not right/You won't be seventeen forever/And we can get away with this tonight)
  • The Venga Boys. Just...the Venga Boys.

 Boom boom boom boom

I want you in my room

We'll spend the night together

From now until forever

  • As featured in Fallout, Roy Brown's "Butcher Pete" (a proto-rock-and-roll song from 1949) disguises its sexual innuendo with a thin veil of serial murder and cannibalism, and is awesome and hilarious as a result.
  • "Blow My Whistle Baby" is about (do I really have to explain it?) oral sex.
  • "Blame It On The Alcohol" is about a drunken one-night-stand Jamie Foxx has with "shorty", in which he all but describes the act in explicit detail. (Way to commit date rape, Jamie Foxx.)
    • I've never seen it as date rape, because I always thought that what he blames the alcohol for is not taking advantage of her, but sleeping with her at all; the lyrics say that he was "unaware how fine she was before [his] buzz set in" -in other words, he only found her attractive once he got drunk. Also, I don't know if it can be considered date rape when both people are drunk, but I can see how it looks that way.
  • The B-52's "Love Shack". Just listen to it and tell me you can't find a few sex metaphors.
    • "Good Stuff" is about as transparent. "So let the people say we're downright nasty/I just say we're down right!" "Strobe Light", on the other hand, comes right out and says it.

 "I wanna kiss your pineapple!!!!"

    • Try also "Lava" and "Deep Sleep" from their earlier releases.
  • "Crazy Bitch" by Buckcherry. Here's an small section of the song.

  "Hey, you're crazy, bitch, but you fuck so good I'm on top of it. When I dream I'm doing you all night, scratches all down my back to keep me right on."

    • In the live version (at least the one I saw) they show Hentai and porn pictures on large screens above the stage.
  • The Scorpions' "Rock You Like A Hurricane". It's right there in the title. And really, how else could you make sense of lines like "Desire's coming/And breaks out loud/Lust is in cages/Till storm breaks loose/Just have to make it/With someone I choose"?
  • Bill Eager's "Kiss Me" is all over this trope.
  • Erasure - "Sometimes", and much more blatantly, "Sexuality". "Strip it--we've got obvious intentions..."
  • Most songs by E-Rotic.
  • Sonique - It Feels So Good, and maybe Sky.
  • Amber - Sexual (Exactly What It Says on the Tin)
  • Shiny Toy Guns - Don't Cry Out: "Ten nine eight and I'm breaking away, I'm all dressed up and ready to play, seven six five four and I'm all over you, counting three two one and I'm having fun".
  • The Real McCoy - "I Wanna Come (read: cum) With You". "It's so strong, I can't resist, I'm on a rocket to the moon and it feels like this..."
    • "One More Time", too.
  • Electric Valentine's "A Night With You". "I don't really like the clothes you wore, but they look better on my bedroom floor, if you know what I mean".
  • Decoded Feedback - Combustion: "Fuck me, push me, let me know how you feel / Grab me, lust for me, let me feel the fire burning my skin"

 Touch me baby, touch me

I will live forever (after death?)

Touch me baby, touch me

We will die together

  • Say Anything does this often enough, an example that sticks out in my head being "Spidersong". "I'm growing legs/ I am the spider/ Crawl inside her."
    • And "Wow, I can get sexual too" did not stick out in your head?

 I called her on the phone and she touched herself.

She touched herself.

She touched herself.

    • Don't forget 'Spores': "You threw me up against the wall/the city shook to meet our mating call..."
  • Minus the Bear have a few of these. "White Mystery" even has a verse about cunnilingus.
  • "Obsessed With You" by The Orion Experience. The singers are pretty blatant with their intentions.
  • Matthew Good. ""Hello Time Bomb."" That is all.
  • And finally, after all this, a complete subversion: The Assuming Song. You dirty bastards.
  • Dylan's song "In The Moonlight" from Modern Family parodies this trope beautifully. He wants to do you, do you.
  • "Love Today" by Mika. Bubbly Bee Gees-style disco vibe, singer whose sexuality has been questioned by fans. The song is more or less about Mika finding various girls to have sex with, one of whom will "make you smile" for a dollar.
  • Improbably named actress Virginia Gay drew attention to the lyrics of a Mondo Rock song called "Come Said the Boy" once on Australian TV show Good News Week. She then performed a version of the song including rather a lot of moaning.
  • Folk artist Johnny Flynn's alum A Larum is particularly known as the sauciest of his work. Such memorable lines as "Slip me some o' that old sardine" and "I'm a plough and you're a furrow, I'm a fox and you're a burrow".
  • Comedy rock group Barnes & Barnes is all about this, whenever they're not being outright explicit about it. Sometimes funny, but they occasionally drift into squick with jokes implying pedophilia and cannibalism.
  • Carnal Carnival by The Doug Anthony All Stars.Part Intercourse with You,part Intercourse With Anyone.
  • "96 Tears", recorded by "? & the Mysterians" in 1966 was originally called 69 Tears. Can you guess why they told the band to change it?
  • "Miracles" by Jefferson Starship. On one hand, it's an intricately harmonized song, almost seven minutes long, and possibly one of the most beautiful things to come out of the many incarnations of that group. On the other hand, the lyrics are explicit enough to make Barry White blush.
  • "Ready Now" by Ruby Tuesday, from DJMAX Portable Black Square:

 So give it up

Let it out tonight

I'm on the floor

Saying more, baby give me more

 Let's make this moment worth the while

Let's kill the night and go down in style

[...]

I can show you pain

And make you say my name \\

  • Has anyone mention Kylie Minogue yet? That lady is one of the most well known queen of this trope...
  • "Cracklin' Rosie" by Neil Diamond is assumed by most people to be one of these songs, but it's actually about a particular type of Canadian liquor.
  • "Love Spy", "Dancing In The Dark", etc. by Mike Mareen.
  • Strokin' by Clarence Carter. The listener won't look at Strokin' the same way again after listening to this.
  • Yelle. Her song "Je Veux Te Voir" contains the lines "je veux te voir/ dans une filme pornographique/ en action avec ta bite/ forme patatoes ou bien frites/ pour tout savoir/ sur ton anatomie/ sur ton cousin Teki/ et vos accessoires fetiches." I'm betting you can already tell how dirty that is, but a rough translation is "I want to see you in a pornographic movie/ in action with your cock/ shaped like a potato or even french fries/ to know everything about your anatomy/ about your cousin Teki/ and your fetish accessories." And the rest of the song is even worse.
  • "Portions for Foxes" by Rilo Kiley throws all sense of subtlety out the window with some of it's lines:

 And the talking leads to touching, and the touching leads to sex...

  • The Decemberists: "Oceanside" and "Isn't It A Lovely Night" are the most obvious examples in their repertoirse. At least, the most obvious consensual examples.
  • Madness did a song called "Pac-a-Mac" - the titular raincoat being an obvious epuhemism for a condom.
    • Their latest album one-upped it with the song "Dust Devil" about a girl who "keeps her gizmo under her pillow" and "come early evening, well, she's banging off the ceiling". If these two lines weren't enough to illustrate the meaning, the live concert of The Liberty of Norton Folgate shown on BBC 4 dispels all notions of innocence, with very risque footage of the gizmos in question... Writhing.
  • The TV show "Not the Nine O'Clock News" ended its final episode with the song "Kinda Lingers". Well, that's what the on-screen caption said, but what they actually sang - many, many times - was "cunnilingus".
  • Detroit Grand Pubahs - Sandwiches

 I know you want to do it

You know I want to do it to

Out here on the dance floor

An we can make sandwiches

You can be the bun

And I can be the burger, girl

I know you want to do it

and we can make sandwiches

So make you thighs like butter

Easy to spread

And we can make sandwiches

Out here on the dance floor

Come on we can do it

Yeah, we can make sandwiches

  • "Fucking On The Dancefloor" by Dirty Sanchez is Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
  • "Spread Your Legs" by Funker Vogt. Also involves rape fantasies.
  • Don't know whose song it is in the first place, but Sammy Davis Jr. sings the unsubtle "What I've Got in Mind". While initilly claiming that "There's some million things / That we could do this evening" he goes on to explaining, innocently enough, "But what I got in mind Is a small cafe, out of the way" only to conclude "Oh, to tell the truth / What I've got in mind is making love to you"
  • Chester Bennington's side project Dead by Sunrise have a song called "In the Darkness". It starts with "I wanna cut through my skin", but just as you roll your eyes and think "Oh, Chester", you hear "And pull you within / My heart burns like the sun / As our flesh becomes one". Then it proceeds to be about sex.
    • White Pegacorn, one of Mike Shinoda's one-off projects, produced a song entitled "Barack Your World", which is pretty similar to the South Park example, only with President Obama instead of Jesus.
  • Kandystand - Love Invasion.
  • "That Summer" by Garth Brooks.

 She had a need to feel the thunder

To chase the lightning from the sky

To watch a storm with all its wonder

Raging in her lover's eyes

She had to ride the heat of passion

Like a comet burning bright

Rushing headlong in the wind

Out where only dreams have been

Burning both ends of the night.



That summer wind was all around me

Nothing between us but the night

When I told her that I'd never

She softly whispered that's alright

And then I watched her hands of leather

Turn to velvet in a touch

There's never been another summer

When I have ever learned so much....

 Every time you walk in in the room

I feel my heart come pounding for you

Is this for real, each time I feel

I'm before your spotlight

Sweat drips ready on cue

I assume my place in your view

Focus is clear, the big scene is here

I'm ready for my close-up with you

  • KMFDM's "Itchy Bitchy"(apparently about a woman with hairy genitals) and "Conillon"("little cunt"), both from their breakout album, What Do You Know Deutschland. Prior to that, Opium had "Pentetration" and "Cuntboy", the latter of which is about pimping or prostitution.
  • The English folk tune "Gently, Johnny". Some verses and versions are not terribly subtle.

 I put my hand all on her thigh,

and she says, "do you want to try?"

I put my hand all on her belly,

and she says, "do you want to fill me?"

  • "Santa Baby" is the Christmas favorite covered by every female singer with a love of the euphemisms. The song is always performed in a bedroom voice and even ends each verse with the word "tonight". Some of the most obvious lines include: "Santa honey, there's one thing I really need, the deed... to a platinum mine," and "Come and trim my Christmas tree." You might take the song as Innocent Innuendo at first except that the last line is a sighed, "Hurry... tonight."
  • Majela Zeze Diamond throws out all pretense of subtlety in pretty much every one of her songs. Sometimes it can even feel like she's trying to set a record for singing "vagina" the most times in a song.
  • "Dangerous (to Touch)" by the short-lived trance group Dyce. "Slide your clothes off..." and the rest is history.
  • Panic! at the Disco's song "Hurricane" has a few euphemisms...then they make the meaning blatantly obvious. "I led the revolution in my bedroom, and I set all the zippers free. We said no more war, no more clothes, give me peace...oh, kiss me!"
  • Long before sexy lyrics, or indeed even words, thousands of animal species were playing this trope with their mating calls. Any biologist familiar with frog, fish, or insect behavior will tell you that animal voices probably evolved in the first place to generate Intercourse with You songs.
  • Ashley Jade - Bring It On Tonight: "I lick my lips as you grab my hips, I want it fast and dirty, boy, tonight / As I dip, I feel I gotta strip, it's getting way too hot in here...
  • Austra's The Future blatantly references oral sex, specifically cunnilingus: "I came so hard in your mouth..." (FYI, Katie Stelmanis is a lesbian)


Musical Theatre Edit

  • Chicago...and all that jazz.
  • And I too have found my Grail! [What's That??] Musical Theater!
  • Young Frankenstein: The Musical gives Elizabeth a ballad in Act Two relating her joy at having at last found "Deep Love." (Accompanied by a whole bunch more adjectives.) This was performed at the Tony Awards.
  • Les Misérables has one of its most upbeat numbers, "Lovely Ladies," be all about the life of a seaside hooker! ("Rich men, poor men, leaders of the land/See 'em with their trousers off they're never quite as grand!")
  • The song "I Cain't Say No" from Oklahoma is about Ado Annie's inability to say "no" to boys and contains the lines: "Supposin' that he says that you're sweeter than cream/ And he's gotta have cream or die?". The show is mostly about love triangles, so it's no surprise that it's full of innuendo.
    • "Then I think of that ol' Golden Rule/An' do fer him what he would do fer me!" (In the 1998 RNT production Ado Annie spreads her legs on this line, leaving no doubts as to what she's talking about.)
  • "Past the Point of No Return" from The Phantom of the Opera has very sexual themes including the lines: "In my mind I've already imagined our bodies entwining" and "When will the blood begin to race/ The sleeping bud burst into bloom"...if you know what I mean.
    • "Music of the Night" isn't much better in that regard. "Touch me, trust me, savor each sensation..."
    • Subverted later, with a verse that implies the Phantom is also impotent. "That fate which condemns me/To wallow in blood/Has also denied me/The joys of the flesh"
  • Pretty much any song from Spring Awakening, most notably with "The Bitch of Living" and "My Junk" being about masturbation and "Touch Me" and "The Word of Your Body" about desiring sexual activity. "The Dark I Know Well" is an example of sex turned into Nightmare Fuel, as it's about sexual abuse.
    • And let's not forget one of the cut songs was aptly named "Great Sex"!
  • I've come to the conclusion that Jekyll and Hyde is all about sex. First there was Dangerous Game which is pretty much musical porn in itself. Then there was Bring on the Men which got removed and replaced with Good and Evil, which isn't much better.
  • The musical Wicked gives us the radar-evading love duet between Elphaba and Fiyero. Lines like "I'll wake up my body / and make up for lost time," and Elphie's seductive "I feel wicked" near the end make their intentions pretty clear.
    • ... But it also makes the line "If it turns out it's over too fast" a bit unintentionally funny.
  • Avenue Q has "Loud as the Hell You Want (When You're Making Love)":

 You're not allowed to be loud

At the library

At the art museum

Or at a play

But when you and your partner

Are doing the nasty

Don't behave like you're

At the ballet!

Cause you can be as loud as

The hell you want

When you're making love!

  • Rent has "Contact," which is just one big orgy under a bed sheet.


Video Games Edit


Web Original Edit


...tonight. Yeah baby. [3]

Notes

  1. Even though it's a sample itself, of "Gonna Fly Now"
  2. It gets worse: it's sung by a woman!
  3. All night long. Feels so good.
