Sarah White, the Naked Therapist, has announced the first ever all-virtual music release party via Periscope for her inaugural EP, "Sex Rock,".
Sarah White explains more about her move to music picking up on themes recently published in an article entitled "This Is Why I'm a Naked Rock Star":
I've learned so much about men in five years of Naked Therapy, and this experience has informed my song style and lyrics." With titles like "Boy Love So Good," "Open My Hips," and "It Takes Two (To Be a Girl)," the EP looks to be a celebration of the power and beauty of male desire for female performance.
In an interesting addition to the music release not only is she releasing music as ONA, but she's offering naked photos and videos on her site, OnaGram.com, in tandem with her music. Ms. White explains women get to be sexually aroused by male musicians (Elvis, the Beatles, Timberlake, Bruno Mars, etc.) and sexually empowered by female musicians (Madonna, Rihanna, Beyonce, Lana, etc.). On the other hand, while men can be sexually empowered by male musicians, it is not to the music industry that they turn for sexual arousal, but to the porn industry. This would indicate that for a female performer to be ultimately sexually arousing for a man, she needs to take off her clothes. Due to current music industry and cultural stigmas against female musicians going naked, there is no such sexually arousing relationship for men in music.
Ms. White points out, it's not all about men; it's also about supporting creative freedom for women: "I think it's time we address the prejudice against female artists using their naked sex appeal to its maximum economic and creative effectiveness. Male performers can be supremely sexy to their female audiences by staying clothed, but women have to go farther, and rather than criticize and lament this fact and slut-shame any female performer who decides to go there, I say it's time we celebrate women who choose to artfully arouse men by getting naked."
Sex Rock will be released at 9 pm EST on February 24, 2016 and looks to be a very interesting music event.
