Women in modern music, prominently the rap genre, has dramatized sexual experiences with vulgar descriptions and labels associated with the women involved, detrimentally influencing younger audiences and even older listeners to use such shallow and derogatory language in reference to women.

In addition, mainstream media also portrays erotic dancers as “selfless mothers struggling to make money to support her children” (Barton, 2002, p.585), indicating that erotic dancers that have good intentions “actually hate dancing and only does it when driven to circumstances beyond her control” (Barton, 2002, p.585).

Watching sex on screen is fascinating for me on many levels. At the most primal one is me also feeling sexually aroused as I allow myself to get immersed in the scene and identify with the characters doing the deed.

The power relation that gets told in these music videos is important because of its intersectionality and the fact that it can be applied to other media, as well as real life.

An example of the female interruption of desire and the male 's free flow of it (Halberstam, 2013) can be seen in many popular magazines, such as Cosmopolitan and Glamour. Magazines aimed at women focus primarily on discussing gossip, clothing, food and boys/men. Women are given advice on how to achieve the perfect body and how to get the perfect man, while operating within constraints of sexual expression, such as articles on "10 ways to please your man." (Halberstam) Men 's desire, on the other hand, is encouraged from a young age. Men are taught to direct their desire at women and to indulge in it, pornography being a prime example
