Conclusion

Pro-social Content

Jackson wants to make the most of every day and cherish simple pleasures on "Enjoy."

Objectionable Content

The balance of the disc emphasizes carnal desires. She lustily praises a partner who gets her "hot," using provocative language to get her point across ("So Excited"). Unspecified "taboo" activities take place on "Get It Out Me" and "With U." The latter could be an illicit affair, since the singer regrets having to leave her sometime-lover's arms and return to real life ("I wish you were the one I could be with forever"). She ponders what her ogling male fans would do with her if they had the chance ("This Body of Mine"), pleasures herself in her man's absence ("Take Care") and wants sexual attention from someone who makes her scream ("Do It 2 Me"). "Love 2 Love" describes a sexual freight train picking up speed, with all of the licking, stroking and kissing that goes along with that ("I wanna taste you, too ... Have your way/Make me your slave/I will behave"). Jackson sounds like a teenager eager to sneak out of the house for a forbidden midnight rendezvous on "Daybreak." Mild profanities pop up occasionally. Liner photos chronicle two decades of immodesty.

Summary Advisory

Janet's erotic fantasies, which might have seemed outrageous 20 years ago, simply echo today's libidinous status quo. That tired formula cheapens the artist and concocts a dangerous "norm" that young fans may feel the need to live up to.
