Lyric
Kiss you, suck you, taste you, ride you

Song & Artist
Would You Mind by Janet Jackson

Hypothesis
Simple. People LOVE dirty talk. We could be wrong.

Analysis
This week’s subject is courtesy of a lyricfancy reader. I wasn’t familiar with the song, but as with other Janet Jackson works, she orally articulates her desires.

Kiss you, suck you, taste you, ride you

Tell us how you really feel Miss Jackson (‘cause we’re nasty). With such explicit lyrics we started wondering, how much do people enjoy dirty talk? Let’s find out.

Dirty talk is the practice of using graphic word imagery to heighten sexual pleasure before and during physical sexual activity. It is commonly a part of foreplay, and can include vivid erotic descriptions, sexual humor, sexual commands and rude words. The multi-billion dollar phone sex industry is built on such saucy speech.

(gives a whole new meaning to, “Make’em say uhh!”). An Adam & Eve online survey found that 80% of those polled engaged in naughty conversation. Clearly, millions love it. We’ve proven the hypothesis, we can stop writing now. But finishing early would be no fun.

Adults delight in the sexy utterances, but still feel a little shy when it’s time to start the discussion. What’s with the initiation trepidation? Today’s secret (or safe) word is boundaries.

There are tutorials and how-tos abound. If you are unfamiliar with your partner’s limits, ease into it. You don’t want to go full-on fantasy and your mate just wanted a little seductive nudging. Sex educator Julie Sunday offers the Narrator vs. Director concept. A Narrator is someone who will describe what is happening, giving a play-by-play of the various actions. A Director is someone who prefers to tell their partner what to do.

Conclusion
People indulge in licentious language across this great land. Your wordplay may not be `a la Janet Jackson, but verbalize what you want. Remember, the squeaky wheel gets the [insert your pleasure here].

This video is from a concert. It involves restraints, patent leather and straddling. You’ve been warned.
