Rock and Sex

Facts reveal that rock music stimulates casual dissoluteness. In "US News and World Report" of March 19, 1990, it is reported that currently there are: 13 rock groups named after male sexual organs, 6 named after female sexual organs, 4 named by variations of the word "sperm," 8 named with words linked with abortion, 1 named after a disease of the womb. There are additionally 10 groups named in honor of various sexual acts while the names of 8 groups include swear words against mothers.

Contemporary rock music is saturated with elements of cohabitation outside of marriage, infidelity, sadism and masochism, homosexuality, rape and necrophilia. Often rock music encourages sex with anyone you like. From the late Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" to Queen's "Body Language" to George Michael's "I Want Your Sex" to Madonna's "Chemical Reaction" to White Snake's "Still of the Night" and to the lyrics of Prince and endless others the theme is the same: promotion of sexual licentiousness.

Evidently, the elements of profligacy contained in the majority of rock compositions are disguised so that they can be offered as something attractive. Simultaneously with and parallel to this, there is a total degradation of the understanding of woman, mother, virgin, bride. They all become objects of unbridled, animalistic sexual lust. For example: "Eat Me Alive," "Dungeon of Pleasure," "The bitch is bound and helpless, she is screaming for more. That sweet and innocent girl is really hard core" and similar titles extol sexual ecstasy, where a deviate appears with a gun and forces others to perform what he desires. So as not to embarrass the reader, we will buy-pass various other passages documenting this facet of rock music. (John Ankerberg and John Weldon, The Facts on Rock Music, Harvest House Publishing House, Oregon 1992, pp. 13-14).

Allan Bloom is quite correct when he asserts that "rock music has one appeal only, a barbaric appeal, to sexual desire - not love ... but sexual desire undeveloped and untutored ... rock gives children, on a silver plate, with all the public authority of the entertainment industry, everything their parents always used to tell them they had to wait for until they grew up ... Young people know that rock has the beat of sexual intercourse ... Never was there such an art form directed so exclusively to children... The words implicitly and explicitly describe bodily acts that satisfy sexual desire and treat them as its only natural and routine culmination for children who do not yet have the slightest imagination of love, marriage or family. This has a much more powerful effect that does pornography on youngsters., who have no need to watch others do grossly what they can so easily do themselves. Voyeurism is for the old perverts; active sexual relations are for the young. All they need is encouragement" (Bloom, Closing of the American Mind, pp. 73-74).
