Lovecat thank you for that link. I haven't seen that and am LOLing, actually am grin

Yeah, it's almost as if the idea of having your body ripped apart isn't a turn on. For some of us.

To be fair, if a man told me he had something that would "rip my ass in two", whilst I would think he was referring to the impressive size of his penis rather than making any sort of threat, I would also think:

"You're alright there matey. I gave birth to a 9lb 1 baby with forceps and an emergency episiotomy. That "ripped my ass in two" and it's not something I fancy repeating really. I had to sit on frozen sanitary pads for a month. It wasn't very sexy."

Thinking about it objectively, the lyric about tearing a woman's arse in two might not mean it in a negative way. If only we didn't have the song writer's claim that it was.

Love the spoof! I often wonder if I'm the only boring old fart in the world that thinks this type of music is utter shite - so glad to know I'm not!

Love the Mod video. Much better. Less rapey.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 25-Aug-13 23:44:29

It's not anal rape though is it? It's a bloke saying he's got a massive cock.

MagratOfStolat Sun 25-Aug-13 23:44:01

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I.AM.DYING

Lovecat - that is the best video ever...

Slippydippysoap Sun 25-Aug-13 23:39:54

It's fucking horrid. The video made me feel a bit ill.

And the lyrics are fine except for the anal rape bit. hmm

Backtobedlam Sun 25-Aug-13 23:28:26

Like the tune, not seen the video. I thought the lyrics were trying to cash in on the success of the Fifty Shades series tbh...but as I seem to be the only one that thinks that, it may be an off the wall interpretation!

I love it!

KittyVonCatsworth Sun 25-Aug-13 22:38:14

Love it too! Don't really see the reference to rape throughout despite googling the lyrics.....I certainly see the reference to anal sex, but anal sex does not equal rapist IMO.

ThedementedPenguin Sun 25-Aug-13 22:36:11

I really like the song.

Video is a bit stupid but I don't really tend to watch them too often plus it's not like he's the first one to 'degrade' women during a music video. Unfortunately he won't be the last.

I find it amazing women are wringing their hands about this song rather than the bigger issues at play. Lets live and let love eh?

RobynThicke Sun 25-Aug-13 22:34:19

I'm quite partial to it too grin

Nancy66 Sun 25-Aug-13 22:32:56

Blimey, Robin sure lives up to his name.

everlong Sun 25-Aug-13 22:28:30

It's utter bilge.

Cheese on cheese.

Robin, telling us who he is...

“We tried to do everything that was taboo. Bestiality, drug injections, and everything that is completely derogatory towards women. Because all three of us are happily married with children, we were like, “We’re the perfect guys to make fun of this.”
People say, “Hey, do you think this is degrading to women?” I’m like, “ Of course it is. What a pleasure it is to degrade a woman. I’ve never gotten to do that before. I’ve always respected women.” So we just wanted to turn it over on its head and make people go, “Women and their bodies are beautiful. Men are always gonna want to follow them around.”“

utreas Sun 25-Aug-13 22:25:39

YADNBU I think its a great song.

ipredicttrouble Sun 25-Aug-13 22:21:11

Horrendous, lyrics & video are completely wrong on so many levels. Can't find anything good to say about this and yes am aghast that some women find this kind of thing acceptable. Awful. End of.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 25-Aug-13 21:39:21

I like the song. It's a great tune and I like dancing to it in a club and on my own at home with my friends.

I don't like the video much but it's no different to so many out there I don't see why this one has caused so much outrage in particular.

Look up Push me until I get my satisfaction or put your hands up for Detroit.

notnagging Sun 25-Aug-13 21:09:21

The tune is fantastic because he copied it from Marvin Gaye & is now suing his family incase they sue him!

Neitheronethingortheother Sun 25-Aug-13 21:06:23

Just played it there in case I was familiar with it and realised it was the song I was dancing around to earlier today. Doesn't seem too bad to me.
