Songfacts®:

  • Pink wrote this song about a woman whose man is not pleasing her, so at night while he sleeps, she masturbates. Self-pleasure is a big part of Pink's I'm Not Dead album: her hit "U And Ur Hand" also covers the topic. >>

  • When asked if the tune was about videotaping herself doing the solo deed, Pink told The Independent: "Absolutely! Hah hah!" She added: "Everything to me is a visual. My favorite songwriters are those who can paint a picture with their words. Maybe I don't do it as dramatically or deeply or as poignantly. But I like to paint a picture."
  • This was included as a bonus track on the UK version of Pink's fourth studio album, I'm Not Dead. The album fared better on the UK charts, peaking at #3 versus #6 in the US.
