Dear Musical Artists,

It has come to my attention that your running out of topics to sing about and the only thing left is sex. I however do not appreciate hearing songs about how you love S&M, how you want to see his 'Peacock',  notches in bedposts, huge 'egos' and things like that.

Your 'clever' sexual innuendos are awful and you should be ashamed of using the lyrics that you do when you have young children listening to your music on the radio and able to purchase your music.

(Parents, please screen the music that your children download, purchase and listen to on the radio.)

Are you so desperate for a song topic that the only thing you think is original is singing about sex?

Is nothing considered private anymore?

Since when is it 'cool' or acceptable to sing about your sexual exploits? Since when has sex been a social climbing tool.... (OK don't answer that one, cause I know the answer is since the beginning of time.) When did being immoral become an OK thing to do? Are you that desperate for attention that you no longer care about the message that your music sends to the younger generation.

Sex isn't a tool. It isn't something to be taken lightly. It isn't an outlet for expression.

It's something special and private between two people.

Yeah sure, you can claim that you don't want to be a role model for anyone. Yeah sure, you are just trying to be 'real'. Since when does 'real' mean talking about orgasming, using whips and chains, and moaning like a tramp in the background of your songs? You are a public figure. Your songs are pop culture. The lyrics you use in your song are what the younger generations will see as being what is important to this generation.

Isn't it great knowing that they'll see us as all being trampy lacking in taste.

Please, from a future mother. There are other things in life to sing about that doesn't shamelessly promote casual sex and things that should go on behind closed doors.

I sincerely hope you can find things to sing about that will not shame this generation. Things that will promote being proud of who you are. Uplifting lyrics that don't have anything to do with how you look, what you can do inbetween the sheets or tapping that ba-dunk-a-dunk in a dark, filthy club.

Sincerely,
Twenty-something about to give up on the music industry.
