Sugar Walls

Sugar Walls

"Sugar Walls" is the second single from Sheena Easton's 1984 album "A Private Heaven".

A top ten hit in the United States on both the Pop (#9) and R&B (#3) charts, the song was composed by Prince, utilizing the pseudonym "Alexander Nevermind".

The song title is presumed to refer to the "walls" of the vagina, which was perhaps sufficiently subtle by itself, but the general content was considered suggestive enough to qualify the song for the "Filthy Fifteen". For example:

*"Blood races to your private spots"
*"Temperatures rise inside my sugar walls"
*"Come inside my sugar walls"
*"Come spend the night inside my sugar walls"
*"Heaven on earth inside my sugar walls"
*In addition, Sheena's seductive spoken-word cooing of lines such as "Take advantage, it's alright" and "I can tell you want me, it's impossible to hide/Your body's on fire, admit it/Come inside"

Although Easton's video clip for "Sugar Walls" did not in itself feature any controversial content, some music-video broadcasters refused the video airplay because of the sexual imagery of the song's lyrics. Televangelist Jimmy Swaggart constantly criticized the song on his television program when it was first released.
