I'm really shocked by the title, but I'm hoping the song lyrics has nothing to do with sex or whatever, because that would be a huggggge shock... I don't think I could accept it. LOL. But by the looks of it, it's going to be a very interesting piece, and because she said she'd return to the old Ayu style, I don't think we're going to see anything too shocking to the fans... I hope. lmao. I can just imagine it now... War breaking out on AHS... LOL.

Are people really that turned off by Ayu having the word sexy in a song title? -blinks-

She's a grown woman, and most of us are mature adults, for the most part, and it's not like when many of us were kids in elementary school and the words "sex" / "boobs" were bad/funny/offensive...

For some reason I sort of feel that too. Maybe I'm weird. But I like Ayu's sexyness when it is subtle and not overt. Like Sparkle and its PV for me were way too overt for her. Already having sexy in the title makes it seem overt. If someone/something really is sexy, they don't have to actually say it because they are it and that is a big part of what makes something sexy.

But maybe the content of the song will be totally surprising.

I don't think being prudish really has anything to do with it. I'm definitely not. But it comes down to people having this more mature image of Ayu. And contrary to popular opinion here, sex and maturity are two different things.

Well, the thing is, even if she did read a translation, she still wouldn't be able to know how raunchy it is without being a native speaker of the language. Just like if I were to sing something similar in Japanese it would be no big deal to me because I wouldn't know the nuances of the language that only a native speaker would really know, especially when it comes to slang words like coochie.

^Yeah I kind of agree. Ayu's sexyness winns in a diffrent way. A deeper level so to say. Not RIGHT-IN-YA-FACE-a-la-kuu-with-songs-like-lick-me<3. Naaah I like Ayu more in her special Ayu-like way to be sexy.

We had such a nice time. We started dating in t2m PV, took it slow you know, let our love grow. Then it got really serious in 2008. Then after AT2009 we moved in together. It was lovely. Then on AT2010 he asked me to marry him. He was such a sweet. And Ayu gave us our blessings. She was also such a sweet. Now me and Maro are such a sweets together. Aaaw, how time flies.

Hm, for some reason this makes me think of Morning Musume's various uses of sexy in song lyrics (Sexy princess! / Sexy beam!) and titles (SEXY 8 BEAT)... and yet, they're really not all that sexual, haha.

^True. But if Ayu puts "sex" in a song title and then make a PV like Sparkle she's passed MM's level and gone over to the kuu side. j/k

But Morning Musume is nothing like Ayu. Ayu is known for being all... deep or special or whatever. Morning Musume are a bunch of cute girls who sell on sex appeal. I know that sex appeal is part of Ayu's selling power too, but she's not like Morning Musume or Koda Kumi. She doesn't need to be sexed up to sell.

Yeah, they do use the word sexy a lot, but somehow its like they are saying Cute Princess, Cute Beam, Cute 8 Beat. haha. Plus, none of their stuff is ever really meant to be taken seriously in that regard.

Now, which would get a more negative reaction here: Ayu doing a sexy pv and song ala Kuu for Sexy Little Things or turn it into a cute PV and song? I think people might go postal if she does the cute thing, haha. That pic of her with the lollipop makes me wonder if it may actually turn into a cute fest.

Let Ayu be sexy. Damn, I think she is the hottest/sexiest/cutest woman alive. If she wants to have fun with music, let her have fun. It'll turn out fine. Better than fine actually. It's gonna be HOT~

Morning Musume uses the word "sexy" but it's not like they are overly sexy and wear tight body suits (e.g. Sparkle)

I have kind of built up 'respect' for Ayu because of her diva-ish nature and her elegance. I know she's a grown woman and what not, but if she starts talking about sex and that sort of thing, Ayu will definitely lose me as a fan I like those things to be kept private... I don't really like it when singers blurt out crap like "lick me" and other overtly sexual things.

^ for some reason, your message made me laugh. idk why. i guess it was the 'lick me' part. i think it's the respect thing too. ayu is elegant and classy, so a lot of people respect her and can't see her in a sexy way, although, she is sexy in her own right. she just doesn't exude raunchiness. there's a difference between 'sexy' and 'nasty' lol anyway, ayu has never used sexually explicit lyrics and i'm sure she never will.

Nah, you have to actually sit on a bottle to crossover to the Ku side

Anyways, people it's just a song title, and it's an Ayu song title, the song might turn out to be something none of us are expecting A few years ago I might be upset, but the PV caps don't look sexual xD at least not the way it was with Sparkle ^^

It would be cool if they were linked

FFS people...
Ayu puts the word 'sexy' in a song title and everyone freaks out over it. It doesn't look like the song will be about Ayu saying 'hey let's go ******* in an alley'...it looks more like what others have said, like a female empowering song like my names WOMEN and Sparkle. I actually hope for a Sparkle ~episode II~ from Sexy little things. I love Ayu and her being sexy, I'll take it any day over her being extremely, sugary cute. And I miss her awesome/creepy/dark PV's. I'm really anxious for the album announcement~
