"Sexuality" is the second track on Prince's 1981 album, "Controversy". The song was also released as a single in Germany, Japan and Australia.

"Sexuality" is a fast-paced New Wave track, built around a synth bass line and drum machines. Much like "Controversy", a funky rhythm guitar is used throughout the song with brief stabs of rock thrown in. Similar to the song "Uptown", Prince describes a society free from prejudice as a "New Breed". The political number also takes jabs at tourists and the sensationalism of television.

The B-side of the single was "Controversy" in Germany and Japan, while Australia paired it with "I Wanna Be Your Lover", from 1979's "Prince".


* Prince reused the "Sexuality" line "reproduction of a new breed/Stand up, organize" on the title track for his 2001 album, "The Rainbow Children".
