Been a while since I last listened to Tove Lo. I remember “Talking Body” which for me is a mid-2010s anthem. “Now if we’re talking body, you got a perfect one, so put it on me,” she sings over a pumping beat. “If you love me right, we fuck for life.”
Couldn’t be any more direct than that. I think it’s beautiful. Sex is beautiful.
I saw the video to “No One Dies From Love” when it first came out. It’s heart-wrenching. If you haven’t seen it yet, here it is:
I’ve added “sex” to things I tweet about including pop culture, infrastructure, journalism, LGBTQ+ rights, and gaming. I think not many people talk openly about sex. Or at least, maybe some people do, but it’s still a hush hush topic for many. (Or maybe I’m missing out on following some profiles). I’m not talking about alters okay, that keeps sex in the background. It’s not that I’m going to start a sex column or anything like it. It’s more like how I want to live more authentically. I’m a sex positive person and it’s something I want to be more open to talking about.
