Love and sex makes the world go ’round -- it’s a fact of life -- and they offer for a lot, if not most, song lyrics.
Where would we be without them?
What about kink and corruption? Now we’re talking…
What is it about the forbidden fruits that make them so much more sweeter to taste?
I think it is human nature to have some deviant desires. Of course I consider myself the unofficial queen of unconventional relationships, at least in my circle of friends.
It’s no secret I’ve tasted the fruit from the deviance tree more than once in my life. It’s not that I am a slut, it is because I have always embraced my wild and rebellious ways. I’m a writer and artist. I hold within me a curiosity, and to steal a line from Iggy Pop, a lust for life. I also have the courage and fortitude to explore uncharted territory without reservation.
Have you tasted the forbidden fruit, or is it still a fantasy world for you? If you haven’t yet, what is stopping you from exploration? Even the tiniest taste can make a huge difference in your world.
Give yourself permission to get adventurous and play.
Just in time for a long Valentine’s Day weekend a mixtape playlist chock full of good ol’ lustful and sexy songs about love, lust, corruption, BDSM and over all naughtiness -- mostly by alternative artists, with a few exceptions. I had to throw in some Madonna, just for good measure. No one took risks and openly brought fantasies out into the open like Madonna did in the 1980’s and 90’s.
You’ll also see a plethora of songs by Depeche Mode on this playlist -- that’s no mistake. I feel that no one out there has embraced the sexiness of BDSM more than Martin L. Gore and his lyrics.
So get inside your mind, pull some of your fantasies out and experiment -- even if you just entertain the thoughts, write, sing, dance or you find the wild spirit inside to share those thoughts with your significant other.
If you’ve waited for permission or a sign to do it -- here it is, with the perfect music to accompany you.
