The role of the castrato singer in eliciting and arousing British anxieties about male gender, masculinity, and sexuality has recently been well examined. Overlooked has been how discourse about the sexuality of female opera singers also exposed long-standing male anxieties about female sexuality, and the role of women in patriarchy. This paper examines a group of misogynistic verse epistles written to or about opera singers Mrs. Robinson, Faustina, Cuzzoni, Mrs. Barbier, Farinelli.

For today’s female singers, sex appeal is a must
Thankfully, trailblazers like Janet Jackson and Madonna and newcomers like CupcakKe and Halsey have all done their part in destigmatizing the female desire for sex. Madonna's been pushing the envelope since she burst onto the scene, a trailblazer for women expressing their sexuality through music.
