'Show you my love'

It's our modern culture debate for the day (I mean, we're in a caffeine-inspired afternoon slump here at Excite Towers - biscuits won't cut it): can porn be considered as an art-form? No doubt the subject divides most people into two categories: those who are fascinated by porn and use it for pleasure whilst ignoring the darker side of the industry, and those that see it as a comment on human nature in general, which they can give or take. But artists? Maybe they'd rather stick to more elevated forms of culture.

That is until they need to make some money and so create the backing music for porn films to earn a daily crust. If it stops you going hungry, it's legit, right? Well, for one musician, Jezebel reveals, her track entitled 'Show you my love' was used, based on the loosest of 'verbal agreements' and without her permission, to accompany the ''whack whack, slurp, moan moan'' soundtrack of a particular adult skin flick.

Natalie Riccio, the artist in question, tells us about her first reactions to finding out about how her track was being used:

'When I first read the email that said there was a porn movie, I kind of chuckled to myself [...] but when I actually saw the film, I just didn't really find it funny at all. It really did make me feel like the song had been degraded. All of a sudden every lyric in that song just became some sort of pun for a blowjob.'

The music firm in question, Studio Unicorn had licensed the track to Getty Music who then paid for the track to accompany the film in question. Riccio is now concerned about three more tracks she created that have been licensed to Getty Music called 'Slow Ride,' 'Fishbowl,' and 'Ode to Marshall'.

We shudder to think what scenes those tracks will be used for!
