Featuring the smutty, the classy and a veritable plethora of nudity...

On the eve of the release of Madonna’s brand-spanking new album ‘Hard Candy’ - featuring a highly sexed up cover of the scantily clad, aging singer posing in an extremely compromising position - we at Gigwise thought that we would search through the bowels of time to bring you the 50 dirtiest and sexiest album covers of all time (okay there are a couple of singles too). Every trick in the book is used here - from blatant nudity to the simple power of suggestion - proving perhaps that sex does indeed sell. Don’t worry, Liars aside, there are no overly gratuitous sex scenes here… you can get your kicks for that elsewhere!
