Savages are a British all-female post-punk rock band, formed in 2011. They comprise Jehnny Beth (vocalist), Gemma Thompson (guitarist), Ayse Hassan (bassist), Fay Milton (drummer). This is a track from their debut album, Silence Yourself.
The song was inspired by an incident when porn actress Belladonna burst into tears after wrapping up filming, but not because she needed pitying. "I like the subversiveness, to twist pleasure and desire in certain ways, because I am a woman and when I see that in other women I feel very inspired," Jehn declared to NME. "And I can cry after a show for example, and I can have a moment of breakdown and it's not because I should stop doing it. It's because the emotion is so strong. For me, I see a lot of places trying to say that sex is impure. I think there's nothing impure in sex. And that porn star was trying to express that."
