If You Get Around
There are lots of anthems out there for men who like sex and relish their one-night-stands (eg. the entire rap industry), but women sexually adventurous women out there lack a variety of theme songs. Enter Dragonette and her pop piece "I Get Around." It celebrates sex while still addressing the fact that women are often socialized to think they shouldn't want sex outside of a relationship with the lyrics, "I say yes when I oughtta say no..." It is a fun song that still manages to capture some of the complex ambivalence a lot of women feel towards their sex lives... Here it is. If you didn't hear it last summer, you must listen now. I have just rediscovered it and it's made my day!
