1987: George Michael Wants Your Sex

Newly solo and apparently eager to go in an edgier new direction, the former star of Wham! released a single with a very frank title: "I Want Your Sex." Several radio stations banned it, and even MTV was skittish, airing the video (featuring a woman in a teddy and garters) in the wee hours. Today, of course, pop music is much more graphic sexually -- the week this gallery was published, for example, Rihanna's "S and M" and Jeremih's "Down On Me" were top hits.
