Love & Sex

For most, the onset of puberty is coupled with an obsession with sex. From that point on, it’s all about the V-Card. How are you gonna lose it? Who will be your lucky swiper? When and where will it happen? My personal experience involved my high school boyfriend’s bed, some candles, and Dave Matthews playing in the background. For others, it’s a tree in the woods, a pool table at a frat party, the bathroom of a pizza parlor. Clearly, the cherry-popping event inspires. In that spirit, we’ve got 10 songs about losing it.
