  • Lyrics
  • There's things that you guess
    And things that you know
    There's boys you can trust
    And girls that you don't
    There's little things you hide
    And little things that you show
    Sometimes you think you're gonna get it
    But you don't and that's just the way it goes

    I swear I won't tease you
    Won't tell you no lies
    I don't need no bible
    Just look in my eyes
    I've waited so long baby
    Now that we're friends
    Every man's got his patience
    And here's where mine ends

    I want your sex
    I want your love
    I want your sex
    I want your, sex

    It's playing on my mind
    It's dancing on my soul
    It's taken so much time
    So why don't you just let me go
    I'd really like to try
    Oh I'd really love to know
    When you tell me you're gonna regret it
    Then I tell you that I love you but you still say no!

    I swear I won't tease you
    Won't tell you no lies
    I don't need no bible
    Just look in my eyes
    I've waited so long baby
    Out in the cold
    But I can't take much more girl
    I'm losing control

    I want your sex
    I want your love
    I want your sex
    I want your, sex, sex

    It's natural
    It's chemical (let's do it)
    It's logical
    Habitual (can we do it?)
    It's sensual
    But most of all
    Sex is something that we should do
    Sex is something for me and you

    Sex is natural, sex is good
    Not everybody does it
    But everybody should
    Sex is natural, sex is fun
    Sex is best when it's, one on one
    One on one

    Sex, I'm not your father
    Sex, I'm not your brother
    Sex, Talk to your sister
    Sex, I am a lover
    Sex
    Sex
    Sex
    C-c-c-c-come on

    What's your definition of dirty baby
    What do you consider pornography
    Don't you know I love you till it hurts me baby
    Don't you think it's time you had sex with me

    What's your definition of dirty baby
    What do you call pornography
    Don't you know I love you till it hurts me baby
    Don't you think it's time you had sex with me

    Sex with me
    Sex with me
    Have sex with me

    C-c-c-c-come on

    Oh yeah
    I want you baby

    Oh so much love
    That you've never seen
    Let's make love
    Put your trust in me

    Don't you listen to what they told you
    Because I love you
    Let me hold you
    Oh

    I'm not your brother
    I'm not your father
    Oh will you ever change your mind
    I'm a gentle lover with a heart of gold
    But baby you've been so unkind

    Come on
    I want your sex
    Come on
    I want your sex
    That's right, all night
    Oh I want your sex
    I want your, sex

    Sexy baby's
    Sexy body
    Keeps me guessing
    With a promise
    I know we can come together
    But the question is
    Will we ever ever?

    Sexy baby's
    (Sexy baby's)
    Sexy body
    (Sexy body)
    Keeps me guessing
    (Keeps me guessing)
    With a promise
    I know we can come together
    But the question is
    Will we ever ever?

    Together
    You and me

  • Victoria Semenenko George Michael's Baby from UkraineIn reality "I Want Your Sex" 1987 trilogy was inspired by dating exactly Brooke Shields in 1985.
  • Victoria Semenenko George Michael's Baby from UkraineAn important notice also is that "I want your sex" 1987 official video looks to be really much alike to "9 1/2 weeks" 1986 film story starring Kim Bessinger and Mickey Rourke. And there is so many alikeness that George Michael video can be accused of plagiat
  • Viktoria Semenenko from UkraineAnd I insiste that "I want your sex" trilogy was NEVER about three different persons that actually obvious of rythmes names as stages of male's feelings as thinking about willing sex.
  • Viktoria Semenenko from UkraineSo the officially confirmed fact is there really was a Spanish model invited for naked scenes so video was produced in a way to make public believe like they were the same woman.
    But as me like George's true baby am also Real Life Victory as Nonviolent Victory there were Russisn and Chinese threats if nuclear war also just for a purpose to make appear exactly an Asian person as an official and especially stable George's life partner. A kind of reference for that you'll find in "Pretty woman" (1990) story when Edwards car is actually blocked or burried by exactly Chinese. As well "Pretty woman" story despite representing George's fantasy as mine too about being a father figure for me also remains a lot about that dating with Brooke Shields on Chicago hotel roof in 1985.
    Brooke told wore a blouse George liked a lot and were talking a lot about fashion during that dinner.
    I would like to remain as Real Life Victory am engaged in Saint George's story as that Victory who in original legend brought a Greek hero to a source of water as a source of life.
    Means George to Brooke so Vivian in the film saying "this is a fate".
  • Viktoria Semenenko from UkraineA very important notice in reality "I want your sex" trilogy was inspired by dating with exactly Brooke Shields in 1985. So the fact is George was even offended in Chicago hotel by her guard as mother too who watched too much carefully after her virginity. Despite continued to see her for some more dates in New York but finally split saying he needed to occupy more of his career.
    Brooke being still rather naive 19 years virgin as sheltered girl believed he was a very gentle person who respected her as she wrote in her memoire.
    So the split happened at Gracy Jones party after Boy George was mocking on a couple about the rumor. Means George put Brooke into a limo to say good-bye despite there was a moment she believed like "everything" could ever really happen in the car.
  • Viktoria Semenenko from UkraineAlso got to say that meaning of this song was completely perverted by medias at the time and reactions were truly exagerated just because it was never about occasional sex but about sex in a stable relationship.

    And they say there was a Spanish model invited to this video for naked scenes.
  • Viktoria Semenenko from UkraineHad to notice an important thing that at the time there were two versions of video for this song (as for "One More Try" and "Father Figure" too). And one of the versions I call a provocative one started with walking girl's back. So an Australian journalist was even asking him in 1988 if his own bottom was seen there and George answered that it depends which version you'd watched.
  • Michelle from UsaWhen this song came out I was 16. I remember that they couldn't play it on the radio until after 10 pm. This was the first song that changed my teenage mind that sex wasn't a "dirty" topic.
  • Viktoria Semenenko from UkraineAnd I remember how was telling him may be just need a Bible as you are saint.
  • Ma from FloridaMichael said to Paula Yates he was monogamous at the time, and on the Ross show he was scared of getting STDs. He emphasized monogamy aspect. I don't think it was because he leaned toward men, as he had a gf, it was just an ethical thing. He doesn't always come off as typical gay anyway. Most gays do NOT embrace monogamy and gay lobby actually encourages promiscuity.
  • Xyzzy from Redwood Empire, CaCorrecting myself... VH/1's Pop-Up Video doesn't mention the "explore __" segment, but does say that George Michael wrote the song in response to people telling kids to not have sex because of the threat of AIDS, as he wanted to send the message that promiscuity was the threat, not sex itself.
  • Xyzzy from Redwood Empire, CaThe article has a few inaccuracies that I guess were written by a younger person... AIDS was "beginning" to spread in 1981 (not 1987) and most people knew that it was being transmitted by sex, needle sharing, and blood transfusions in heteros & gays by the mid-80s. George Michael being gay would've had nothing to do with the decision to write "explore monogamy" as nobody could've imagined back then that a gay person could ever be open about their orientation. (Also, I've read that he originally wrote "explore pleasure" but MTV pressured him to change it to "explore monogamy" -- I think that VH1's "Pop-Up Video" mentions it in their version of IWYS.)
  • Mare Soir from Oceanside, CaThere are three parts to this song. I think this song is about three different people and their respective friendship/fling/relationship. It's got to be one of the most sensual songs ever. Wow. George Michael is the sexiest and most intelligent artist out there. He had it going on then and he still does. He personifies love.
  • Manda from Oc, CaIn the LA Times June 14, 2008 photo montage about his notable songs that went along with the article about George's tour 'TwentyFive Live," he remarked on "I Want Your Sex": "I hate that song. I think it sounds like bad Prince. I was so obsessed with Prince at the time, with the sparsity of those records."
  • Joshua from La Crosse, WiDuring the song's U.S. chart run, the producers of Casey Kasem's American Top 40 radio show subtly rearranged the show's usual structure to accommodate radio stations that refused to play the song, while causing minimal disruption to the rest of the show. (Here's a link to the cue sheet for the first AT40 episode where this song appeared, including an attached memo to radio station program directors describing how to skip over the song.)
