10 Things I Learned About Sex From Trey Songz

10. Unless the neighbors know your name, you are doing it wrong.

Perhaps before moving in, Trey Songz should have knocked on his neighbor’s doors and introduced himself by saying, “Hi, my name is Trey and I’ve been required by law to inform you that my love-making is what some would classify as ‘chandelier-shaking loud.’ Thank you for your time.” Do your own neighbors only know your name because they got your mail for you that time you went to a conference in Tucson? That is a mistake. (‘Neighbors Know My Name’)

9. The way to be a good girlfriend is to go to the strip club with your boyfriend.

If your man is heading to the strip club, the best possible way to ensure he doesn’t cheat on you with a stripper is obviously to come along. Consider it “date night.” The couple that stuffs dollar bills down a lady named Bambi’s thong together, stays together. After Badda-Bings, you and yours can head home and re-enact what you saw up on that pole Wendy Williams told you it would be fun to install in your bedroom. Bliss. (‘Already Taken’)

8. Your body is a problem but it can be solved by the right man.

If you’re like every other woman, you frequently walk around looking hot only to suddenly stop and sigh with frustration, “Golly, my body is such a problem.” Fear no more, ladies. All you need is a man who can solve a problem better than Maria and the entire Extreme Home Makeover crew combined. Consider your torso a complicated math equation. Let’s say: Vagina + Boobs ^2 – Peen / Chest Hair = SeXXXy. Now consider Trey the Albert Einstein of bodies. You’ve basically got it down. (‘Neighbors Know My Name’)

7. If you’re trying to stop cheating on your lover, one last go around is totally okay.

Say you’re a sexy hotel receptionist who sleeps with an R&B sensation who comes through town every few months on tour. You’re at work looking forward to some downlow getdown, when he rolls up with his day-time lover. SAY WHAT? Not one to be burned, you slip him a note with his room key asking for one last tumble. Self-respect be damned! You work in a hotel and he performs with Lil’ Wayne. Get your priorities in order and spread ’em. (‘Last Time’)

6. Don’t have sex with your friends!

An oldie, but a goodie in the relationship advice world. Trey laments his inability to be friends with his ex by singing, “I wish we never did it and I wish we never loved it.” Those seem like two different wishes. Does he wish they did it but hated it? That crosses over into rape-y. Does he wish they’d loved it but never did it? Impossible logic. In this case, syntax is key. In fact, saying “syntax is key” is one way to make sure your friends never want to have sex with you. (‘Can’t Be Friends’)

5. Sometimes, you’ve just gotta drop your panties and hope for the best.

All a fella needs is the right song to make sure a woman wants to release herself from her underwear. The technical term is “a panty droppa,” though it can also be known as a “baby maker” — though that implies responsibility beyond the dropping of the panties that I’m not sure a minute-thirty slow jam can make a woman commit to. I get that it’s a panty droppin’ love song but let’s wrap it up and keep babies out of this. (‘Panty Droppa’)

4. Don’t be a tease if you’re not gonna ride.

If you meet a woman during the day, let’s say you approach her at a clothing store, it is then completely acceptable to drop lines like, “Grip them legs back, call me pliers” and “your body is my home, let me come inside” on the first date. Preferably before you even get inside the hotel, which is where all first dates inevitably end. (‘Wonder Woman’)

3. A good sext (sexy text) is an art form.

No need to be a wordsmith when it comes to sexting. Sometimes a picture and an emoticon speak louder than any misspelled terms for vagina. Simply include an “LOL :)” as the subject of every dirty text message to show you’re playful about your shadow-y nipples. (‘LOL Smileyface’)

2. Drinking alcohol is the linchpin of any good sexual encounter.

None of that “ordering individual drinks” crap. Trey orders by the bottle. None of that “taking sips” shite either. Trey pours the whole thing down your throat at once. Now get up on that table and dance. After all, Trey is your doctor and he is prescribing nothing but cranberry and vodkas for a disease known colloquially as “DTF.” (‘Say Aah’ & ‘Bottom’s Up’)

1. He invented sex. Bow down, mortals.

Not sure what else needs to be said here. The man makes the most definitive claim in the history of sticking it in and moving it around; he invented sex. Trey’s controversial prototype of “lady-on-top-while-Usher-plays” has floated around the world of sex since Biblical times.

Trey Songz is not here to change the world, just to make you change your panties. (‘I Invented Sex’) Thought Catalog Logo Mark
