The Top 5 Best (Pro-Lady) Songs About Vagina

Posted By on Wed, Aug 1, 2012 at 8:49 AM


Lana Del Rey must've known that covering Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box" would elicit some sort of a response from Courtney Love, but none of us could've predicted that Love would actually be funny when she Tweeted LDR about it. "You do know the song is about my vagina right?" Love queried. "Next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you?" Wonder if LDR will be covering Nirvana's other ode to Courtney's genitals, "Moist Vagina," any time soon? This of course got us thinking about our favorite vagina-centric songs. There's tons of them out there, but the following five are the best of the best, as far as we're concerned, because they're so darn lady-positive.

5. "Work It," Missy Elliott

And here's Missy Elliott proving that you don't have to resort to dressing like a raging whore and singing in cliches (we're looking at you, Rihanna) to talk about your own vagina. In "Work It," Missy is a dominant and demanding sex goddess, unafraid to talk about shaving her "chocha" in time for some good, sofa-based, sweet lovin'. Bow down ("town and eat it like a vulture").

4. "Soft As Snow," My Bloody Valentine

When you're a slightly awkward dude trying to pay homage to female nether regions, you don't wanna be all gung ho about it. You want to be quiet and complimentary and laid back and sexier than you look. Mission accomplished, Kevin Shields. Mission accomplished. It's always the quiet ones...

3. "My Neck, My Back," Khia

Holy raging vagina core, world! Khia was not fucking around when she wrote this. Not only is this all about her "pussy" (and "crack"... which is nice...), it's basically three and a half minutes of Khia demanding cunnilingus and offering absolutely nothing in return whatsoever. Which feels a little bit revolutionary, given that musical history usually implies that men do all the demanding and women do all the providing of sexual favors. Khia's having none of that here. She just wants her lady region serviced immediately and thoroughly. And then you can leave, thanks.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
