not of the prude generations

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« The provocative title and video of George Michael’s I Want Your Sex was marked with a negative reaction of prudes. Dear kind readers born in the Eighties and beyond: I am of a post-sexual-revolution generation and people my age and younger hardly notice I Want Your Sex as sexually distinguished. Madonna release Like a Virgin three years before, and it seemed not overly sexually provocative. The prude generations of Americans were born in the Thirties and before, and birth years of the Sixties and beyond have no good reason to be sexually prude. Sincerely, Tom Doody. There is a trace of me being defensive as I write this message to younger people. They have reason to know it’s the music of people my age, and I want to distinguish myself from anyone who thought, “oooew George inappropriate” . . . that would have been my parent’s generation. »» about me 302-990-2346 nearlincoln@hotmail.com contact us
