I am on a hunt to find gender anomalies in society, and one of the assignments is to find a song within the last decade (preferably an American hit!) that portays a man as the sex object. The artist can be either group or solo, male or female. The raunchier and more blatant the lyrics are, the better. I'm not looking for subtlty (but that can work too [Wink] ). Thank you guys so much for your continued help!

The Donnas are an all girl rock band who has a lot of sexual songs that would fit your criteria. "Take It Off" was a hit that got radio play in the US about four years ago, but almost all of their songs would work.
Some other good ones are: "40 Boys in 40 Nights", "Too Bad About Your Girl," and "Take Me to the Back Seat"

Edit: Soundly spanked by Lizbeth. That'll teach me to type faster.

The Donnas are a great band for that - they take AC/DC-style '70s hard rock and turn the macho attitude on its head. "Take It Off" is probably the best example.

Sample lyrics:
quote:
'Cause I get what I want and I like what I see
Take it off
(echo) Take it off!
Take it off baby, for me

and...
quote:
Forget the application...
You're the right guy for the task
Let me take you on vacation
Just do it, you don't have to ask!

These may be older than a decade, but there's "I'm too Sexy" by Right Said Fred, "Push It" by Salt n Pepa, and "Pony" by Ginuwine. "Pony" has a great chorus:
If you're horny, let's do it
Ride it, my pony
My saddle's waitin'
Come and jump on it

"Michael" by Franz Ferdinand has a man as a sex object. It's on their first album but I don't know if it was a hit.

If I were you I'd check out Li'l Kim, Missy Elliott, and Madonna.

More than a decade ago, but Salt 'N Pepa's "Shoop"

quote:
Ummm, you're packed and you're stacked 'specially in the back
Brother, wanna thank your mother for a butt like that (thanks, Mom)
Can I get some fries with that shake-shake boobie?
If looks could kill you would be an uzi
You're a shotgun - bang! What's up with that thang?
I wanna know how does it hang?
Straight up, wait up, hold up, Mr. Lover
Like Prince said you're a sexy mutha-

Also not from the last decade, but the Kinks' "Lola" has Lola as the object of desire-- a gender-ambiguous-probably-man.

For a more derisive take, try some of Liz Phair's songs (especially from Exile in Guyville).

A sample (from "Soap Star Joe"):

quote:
Check out the thinning hair
Check out the aftershave
Check out America
You're looking at it babe

I'd also cite "Flower", but it's probably better if you discover those lyrics on your own... [Wink]

I was going to mention "Flower," but was beaten to it. Bad song to find yourself singing under your breath at work.

He's not just singing about his prowess, though. He's objectifying himself. It's not like Prince's "Lemme show u baby I'm a talented boy," or Nate Dogg's "You can come on over, and I'll break you off."

"#1 Crush" by Garbage, maybe?

Possibly "Six Underground" by the Sneaker Pimps (that would probably fall into the "subtle" category, I think).

They might fall just outside the decade requirement, though.

I'm still not seeing it. The rest of the lyrics are about checking out a hottie in a club, the chorus is simply what he wants her to do.

Sitting here flossing
Peeping your steelo
Just once if I have the chance
The things I will do to you
You and your body
Every single portion
Send chills up and down you spine
Juices flowing down your thigh

I know somebody said Joan Jett, so here it is.

Joan Jett & The Blackhearts - I Love Rock 'n' Roll

I saw him dancing there by the record machine
I knew he must have been about seventeen
The beat was going strong
Playing my favorite song
An' I could tell it wouldn't be long
Till he was with me...

How about nearly anything done by Salt n' Pepa?

Here's the video for Whatta Man

My man gives real loving that's why I call him Killer
He's not a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am, he's a thriller
He takes his time and does everything right
Knocks me out with one shot for the rest of the night
He's a real smooth brother, never in a rush
And he gives me goose pimples with every single touch
Spends quality time with his kids when he can
Secure in his manhood cuz he's a real man
A lover and a fighter and he'll knock a knucker out
Don't take him for a sucker cuz that's not what he's about
Every time I need him, he always got my back
Never disrespectful cuz his mama taught him that

I once did a seminar presentation on Tricky´s Suffocated Love as an illustration for the Family Decline theory. Not a single word about love. Lovely. It´s not exactly a radio hit, but it fits the theory really well.

Edit: d`oh. Just re-read your post. It´s great for Family Decline, probably not so great for what you´re doing. But my best wishes, anyway.

Khia had a rap song whose chorus was:

"Lick my neck, lick my back, lick my pussy and my crack."

Also, Peaches and Princess Superstar.

Pretty much anything by Lords of Acid, Jack Off Jill, The Genitorturers (the lead singer is a female bodybuilder / dominatrix), some songs by Ruby, and some of Liz Phair's (she sang a song to a guy telling him she wanted to be his "blowjob queen") earlier songs.
