Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
Recorded for the In Utero album, this was originally titled Moist Vagina And Then She Blew Him Like He's Never Been Blown, Brains Stuck All Over The Wall. It was left off the album for fear that there was already enough controversy over the song "Rape Me."
The song is not about women or sexuality but about drugs, specifically marijuana. Kurt Cobain said that this song explains how marijuana is the only partner he needs to "eat." (thanks, Matt - Millbrae, CA, for above 2)
