No Duh Of The Day: Sex Sells

    Hey, guess what? A lot of popular music is about sex! In a study that could have been conducted by anyone with ears and a radio, a SUNY Albany psychology professor Dawn R. Hobbs discovered that "approximately 92% of the 174 songs that made it into the [Billboard] Top 10 in 2009 contained reproductive messages." Riffing on the phrase "sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll," Hobbs found that there was an average of 10.49 sex related phrases per song. R&B tended to have the most prevalent amount of gratuitous mentions of sexual congress, obviously stemming from their "we don't see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind" mentality. Pop and country music came in a distant second and third, respectively, with country actually focusing more on monogamy. Lame! Coming up later in revelatory music news, Willie Nelson is caught smoking weed and Tommy Lee has sex with a pornstar.
