Sometimes I listen bemused to some of my millennial female friends who were 'shocked' to see Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker.
I wanted to tell them, have you browsed through Madonna's 'Sex' book, or the video to 'Justify My Love' or even listened to her album 'Erotica' - everything in that movie, she already showed to the world, 25 years ago.
You might learn a thing or two about spicing up your married sex life!
The woman, as the dominatrix, is a subject Madonna has explored and the tour that went with this album was raunchy as ever - I don't even think they'd allow it here in present-day Manila, because in the first song alone - a topless woman slowly gyrates downward along a very very long long pole - how's that for erotic imagery for you.
However, we sometimes forget that some of her beautiful and fun songs like 'Rain', 'Deeper and Deeper', 'In This Life, and 'Bye Bye Baby' come from this album.
So underneath that imagery of leather whips and gold teeth were some really solid songs that can stand the test of time.
