Sex As a Weapon
Pat Benatar Lyrics


You really do know how to strut that stuff (strut that stuff)
You really do know how to act tough (act tough)
Your body's just like a centerfold
A fantasy, (a fantasy), anyone would want to hold

Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex as a weapon
You know you're already my obsession
Stop, (stop), using sex as a weapon
Love is more than a one way reflection
Stop, (stop), using sex as a weapon

With looks that kill and a mind that's twisted (twisted)
I don't know why I can't resist it (resist it)
I tell myself look the other way (other way)
When you want me to (when you want me to)
I, I always stay

Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex as a weapon
You know you're already my obsession
Stop, (stop), using sex as a weapon
Love is more than a one way reflection
Stop, (stop), using sex as a weapon

You play with desire like it was a toy (toy)
How much affection can you destroy?
You wrap my heart around your little finger
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex as a weapon

Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex

Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex as a weapon
You know you're already my obsession
Stop, (stop), using sex as a weapon
Love is more than a one way reflection
Stop, (stop), using sex as a weapon

Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex
Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex
(Stop using sex)
(Stop using sex)
Sex as a weapon, as a weapon

I love how towards the end of the video, Pat puts a picture of herself up from the early days when she was marketed as a sex symbol. She looks at it and shakes her head.

As the song suggests pat benatar is a musician and is very serious about the music she writes and records and does not like to be stared down as a sex object

I've seen a couple of people's posts that they think there's a story behind the song... there very much is... back in the 80s the record labels kept wanting her to dress up like a sexy little kitten Vixen and she was uncomfortable with it... towards the end of the song where they show her album cover when she's bending backwards and she's wearing the skin tight outfit and she's sings the line "sex as a weapon" she looks up at the picture that was kind of a "screw you" to the record labels.. because of her confidence and success in the end she got her way.. directly after that panel in the video you see the giant Bank of Television screens.. in the bottom right-hand corner you see Pat and she has kind of a self-satisfied smirk on her face cuz she got her point across

I can't believe Like A Virgin went to number 1 and this song only went to 28. People are crazy
