Is There Too Much Sex In Music Videos?
Sex sells and ever since Elvis swiveled his hips, it has been a bedfellow of pop music.
With the coming of MTV in 1981, we didn't have to use our imaginations any more. It's
all there for us. Artists have pushed the boundaries on suggestive sexual content
and several videos have been banned, edited, or forced to broadcast late at night.
Banning a music video can't do an artist or band any harm. It's all great publicity
for record sales. These days, banned clips are often leaked Internet sites like YouTube,
so we get to see them anyway.
Some psychologists warn of the effects of sexual content in videos on the young. Girls
sometimes want to copy the dress (or lack of!) and behavior of the gyrating stars
when they don't have the emotional maturity to cope. Both girls and boys think that
they must achieve physical perfection and an obsession with body
image can lead to unnecessary dieting.
Personally, I think subtlety
is sexier. The film directors of the 1940s and 1950s had to be subtle to get around
the censors. They played with symbolism and coded dialogue and this is often more
sensual than graphic scenes. The sexiest video I have ever seen is the one for Chris
Issak's Wicked Game. Chris and model Helena Christensen are on a beach with a lapping
ocean. The guitar is mournful. It's not what happens that is thrilling; it's what
nearly happens. They tease each other by almost kissing. You think she's going to
take her bikini off but she doesn't. Contrast this with Duran Duran's Girls On Film
video. I watched this and wondered what the fuss was all about, then realized I'd
seen the cut version. The BBC banned it in the UK and MTV broadcast an edited version
during daytime. At nighttime, full frontal nudity, phallic symbols and mud wrestling
were on show.
In the original Black Or White video before it was edited, Michael Jackson grabs his
crotch and zips his pants up. We are all familiar with Michael's fondness for grabbing
his crotch. It ceased to be sexy, if it ever was, and it just became a trademark like
his moondance or his glove. In the censored version, the hand is traveling there but
MTV banned the Body Language video featuring Queen in 1982, the first such ban by
the station. The version I've seen isn't at all tacky. I think it's pretty erotic
in a black and white, arty sort of way. Isn't it strange how filming something in
black and white gives it some sort of instant credibility?
The one people still talk about is the cheesy Call On Me video for the 1980s hit record
by Eric Prydz. It's another one that was cut for daytime broadcast. Tapping into that
decade's obsession with aerobics classes and legwarmers (why did we find legwarmers
so sexy?), the participants are perfect specimens who practise their pelvic thrusts,
writhing and pouting, along with embarrassing usage of towels. The nighttime version
retains breasts and buttocks. It isn't like any aerobics class I ever went to!
Madonna's videos have been banned due to sexual and religious content including the
MTV ban on Justify My Love, which suggests scenes of sadomasochism, cross dressing,
and voyeurism. It's another black and white video, quite artfully shot and I can't
see anything ugly or objectionable about it. There goes that 'it's in black and white
so it must be art' again. I fall for it every time.
Since the 1990s, the boundaries have been continuously pushed and previous videos
that ran into trouble with the censors look tame in comparison. Music videos reflect
the society that surrounds us. Elvis and his pelvis doesn't look so shocking now!
Studies show that suggestive content is present in the majority of MTV videos, particularly
in the hip-hop and R&B genres. If you want an example of something that some people
would describe as porn, look no further than the infamous Tip Drill by Nelly. There
is a lot of, shall we say. simulation. Rock too has its moments as in the video for
Pussy with German industrial metal band, Rammstein. This video is supposed to show
the sex act for real. The videos I found on You Tube claim to be uncensored but they
blur out the interesting bits!

I am far from prudish and anything genuinely erotic is fine by me. Of course, one
person's tasteful erotica is another person's porn and vice versa. I do think there
is a lack of imagination in a lot of pop, hip-hop and R&B music videos. Perhaps
it's appropriate to broadcast some videos after a certain time in the evening. The
trouble with having so much suggestive material is that we become desensitized to
it and it loses its value. I do worry about it being in the background all the time
in children's bedrooms, I hate to see women portrayed as victims, and I object to
Britney Spears prancing around in a school uniform for Baby, One More Time. With that
said, did I enjoy doing the research for this article? Of course I did!
