People Are Sharing Songs They Didn’t Realize Were Overtly Sexual Until They Grew Up, And I Confess I Was One Of The Gullible Little Goobers

    I can't believe I was singing these high-key nasty songs at the top of my lungs as a kid.

    Recently in a thread on Ask Reddit, user u/Dry_Lie8495 asked, "What’s a song you didn’t realize was sexual until you were a teen/adult? and people quickly reminded me of all the songs I loved as a kid but didn't realize the lyrics were naughty until I grew up.
