The Complete Guide To Every Sex Reference In Rihanna’s Songs

Rihanna has built her brand from being a goddamn freak…in the best way. Instagram sure as hell can’t tame her and neither can her own shirts. But bad gal RiRi wasn’t always bad. We were first introduced to the Barbados-born singer when she was a 17-year-old with wide eyes and long, bouncy hair, dancing to innocent songs like “If It’s Lovin’ That You Want.” Since, she’s chopped the locks and has become much more fond of sexual innuendos and black leather, releasing albums like Unapologetic and Rated R. Take a look at the evolution of sex references in Rihanna’s songs, and you’ll see that slowly but surely, she was bound to release NSFW tracks and unleash the inner S&M Queen that she is.
