ESSENCE Poll: Are Today's Music Videos Too Sexy?

Comments
Rihanna Pour It Up

Stripper poles, twerking, gyrating, money flying around, dry humping—there isn't much left to the imagination in Rihanna's new video for the song "Pour It Up." Our favorite "bad gal" pays homage to strip club culture in the saucy new vid featuring professional skippers twerking on water (who knew you could?!). The video was quickly set to private 10 minutes after it debuted on VEVO.

Riri's isn't the first video to raise our brows and temperatures. If you're in your late 20's and 30's you know we've been here before. Remember D'Angelo's "Untitled (How Does It Feel?), Erykah Badu's "Window Seat," Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back?" And the most racy of all: Nelly's "Tip Drill" (oh my!)

Do you think today's videos are any more racier? Share your thoughts and comments with us below.
