Synopsis by Sarah Sloboda
The Justify My Love music video broke new ground in 1990 by being banned from MTV for its overtly sexual visuals, despite Madonna's popularity and fame as a trendsetter. Indeed, the following decade brought forth a sexual progression on television, particularly in music videos, proving Justify My Love simply came ahead of its time. The video takes place in a hotel where Madonna acts out romantic fantasies with all kinds, from lesbians to sado-masochists, and is not recommended for viewing by children.
