The message and lyrics of this song remain as relevant today as when the song was originally released in 1991 so I am reposting it. Old School Rocks!

Cut and pasted from Wikipedia:

"Let's Talk About Sex" is a song released by the American hip-hop trio Salt-n-Pepa. It was released as a single from their Blacks' Magic album in 1991, and achieved great success in many countries, including Australia, Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.

The song talks about safe sex, the positive and negative sides of sex and the censorship that sex had around that time in American mainstream media.

The song was later included in the trio's Greatest Hits (2000) album. It samples "I'll Take You There" by the Staple Singers.

An alternate version of the song entitled "Let's Talk About AIDS" was released to radio on a promotional single and included as a b-side on various singles for the song. The lyrics were changed to more directly address the spread of AIDS and HIV.
