LaTour is the debut album by house music songwriter LaTour. Released in 1991, it featured a hit single in the song "People Are Still Having Sex", which features a deadpan monologue about people having sex all over the world and nothing being able to stop it. In the album edit of the song, the lyric was originally written at "This AIDS thing's not working". It was changed to "This safe thing's not working" for airplay. It reached a peak of 35 on the pop charts, while peaking at number 1 on the dance charts and number 15 on the UK charts.
