S.E.X.



Lyrics

...Hot, Sex
Sex, tell me...
...Hot, Sex
Sex, tell me...

Oh my God, you're so hot
Pull my hair, let me get on top
Oh my God, soaking wet
Back and forth 'til we break the bed

When you read my mind, get down and discover me
I'm an open door, let you come inside of me
Wanna put my hands around your neck
Gonna take you to a place that you will not forget

Sex, what you know about sex
Tell me what you know about sex
Sex, what you know about sex

Oh my God, you're so hot
Pull my hair, let me get on top
Oh my God, soaking wet
Back and forth 'til we break the bed

You got a bad attitude
I like to grind it on you
And when I let you put it on me
You better give me what I want baby

Oh my God, let me clean your wound
I can be your nurse
Got the antidote, please show me where it hurts
Can you be my father, tell me what to do
You can punish me and maybe I will punish you

Sex, what you know about sex
Tell me what you know about sex
Sex, what you know about sex

Oh my God, you're so hot
Pull my hair, let me get on top
Oh my God, soaking wet
Back and forth 'til we break the bed

You got a bad attitude
I like to grind it on you
And when I let you put it on me
You better give me what I want baby
Oh my God

A lesson in sexology
Twisted rope, hand cuffs
Blindfold, string of pearls
Necktie, silk scarf
Silver chains, pretty girls
Thigh highs, feather mask
High heels, gold damask
Perfume, switchblade
Absinthe, Novocaine

Chopsticks, underwear
Bar of soap, dental chair
Fishnets, satin sheets
Garter belt, raw meat
Candle light, keyhole
Leather belt, mink stole
Golden shower, latex thong
Licorice whip, strap-it-on

Oh my God, you're so hot
Pull my hair, let me get on top
Oh my God, soaking wet
Back and forth 'til we break the bed

You got a bad attitude
I like to grind it on you
And when I let you put it on me
You better give me what I want baby

Sex

Song

In an interview with the LA Times, Madonna said about this song:
"It's kind of a social commentary about the way everybody hooks up now and the lack of intimacy. When I made my "Sex" book I was being incredibly ironic, but I was also saying, "Look, it's not only a man's place to objectify a woman -- a woman can objectify herself too." In the song "S.E.X.," when I do the sort of rap in the middle and I do the list, I made myself sound like I have a lisp. Go back and listen to it. It's meant to be ironic -- even though there's some very handy items on that list."


Tour

S.E.X. @ Rebel Heart Tour S.E.X. became the obvious choice for an interlude of the Rebel Heart Tour. Right in the middle of the show, combining old and new, Erotica video footage appears on the screen while an edited album version of S.E.X. can be heard. Kicking off with a Justify My Love snippet, Madonna fans re-live the controversial era while on stage four dancer couples (in varying compositions: male-female, male-male, female-female) perform a sensual and arousing choreography on beds, re-enacting some of the lyrics. Towards the end, it all gets out of hand, with partners switching beds and everyone enjoying each other together.
