"I ain't gonna lie, I started to break her off something because the little head was telling me to do it, but the bigger head said, 'Nah, you'd better not.'
"I don't wanna make love like that. I wanna hear noises and see her face. I can't do that on national TV. I could have slipped it in under the covers if I wanted to."
