"Sexuality" is the third studio album by French artist Sébastien Tellier, released on February 25, 2008. The album was produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, who is best known as one of the members of Daft Punk.

Conception

"Sexuality" is the first studio album by Tellier produced by someone other than himself. [http://www.timeout.com/london/music/features/4269/Sebastian_Tellier-interview.html Sébastian Tellier: interview] "". Retrieved on February 20 2008.] When de Homem-Christo was asked to produce the album, he was flattered and immediately agreed to do it. He expressed that Tellier "is maybe the best singer and composer in France today" and felt that the album was one of the few collaborative efforts in which he could contribute significantly and uniquely. "If you feel it and if you feel something creatively interesting then it’s possible." [http://www.popjustice.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1909 Daft Punk Interview] Popjustice. Retrieved on February 20 2008.] Their previous professional meeting was during the production period of the film "Daft Punk's Electroma", in which Daft Punk requested the use of Tellier's song "Universe".

The first "taster" from the album was "Sexual Sportswear", which was revealed on Tellier's MySpace page. He described the instrumental track as "a direct combination of what I was doing before and what Guy-Man can do." When questioned on the two seemingly strangely juxtaposed words in the title, Tellier replied: "In my own sexual fantasies I always think about women in sportswear. I like women in sports pants and prefer peeling them off women to lifting up their skirts."

Regarding the style of the album, Tellier stated, "It is not at all like what I have released before and nothing like what Guy-Man did with Daft Punk." He also elaborated that, "It's very electronic and like intellectual R&B, although not in the same way that Beyoncé or Justin Timberlake are R&B... I tried to keep vulgarity away from sex and my music."
