The voice of our times

Surti and Tejo clearly illuminate the cries of a generation raised on the grain of MTV and the internet, fattenned on the wealth of their fathers and weaned off the economic prosperity and jobs they were promised. It's a generation which expects to get what it wants and will sulk and cry when this does not happen. They'll whine, they'll moan and they'll sure as hell tell the whole fucking world about it.

It does seem however that the whole world is fucking. When media watchdogs post smut, it won't be long before an ADUN does it. Sure, political points against the establishment need to be scored, but a negative of two folks cuddling is still smut when the insinuation of illicit humping is raised. A negative's a negative, and it doesn't take much to fire up the Photoshop (thank you, Uncle Ho !) to reverse the spin.

Are they the alleged parties ? Who cares, other than their respective spouses. We sure don't. But lots of people will be drawn to this. There's a hint of scandal, you see. And who knows, it may keep the momentum of that grand daddy of sex, scandal, politics and murder going for another week or two. We need something to talk about when we're having teh tarik now, don't we ? After all, we know Malaysians are bad conversationalists anyways.

Take a look at The Star Online's most read stories. A story about sex, rape or nudity is always in the top ten. Every. Single. Day. It's like the flip to the sex stories when no one's looking, or when they need a quick wank. Sure enough, this is followed by a hop over to BangBus, MILF Heaven or even Puppy Love.

People talk about sex, it's like they've all taken Salt 'N Pepa's words to effect.

Let's talk about sex for now
To the people at home or in the crowd
It keeps coming up anyhow
Don't decoy, avoid, or make void the topic
Cuz that ain't gonna stop it
Now we talk about sex on the radio and video shows
Many will know anything goes
Let's tell it how it is, and how it could be
How it was, and of course, how it should be
Those who think it's dirty have a choice
Pick up the needle, press pause, or turn the radio off
Will that stop us, Pep? I doubt it
All right then, come on, Spin

Everyone's talking about sex. Dek Mat talks about sex, and this post is about sex.

We do listen to our grassroots now, you know.

Let's talk about sex, baby
Let's talk about you and me
Let's talk about all the good things
And the bad things that may be
Let's talk about sex
Let's talk about sex
Let's talk about sex
Let's talk about sex
