Gorilla

Somehow I still want to talk about sex in this posting. If in the previous post I mainly talked about how it feels when we finally find someone whom we completely and truly and deeply fall in love and makes us realizing the real feeling of being in heaven (or at least the closest to heaven) which we never felt before in our past relationship, then in this post I would like to talk about how it feels to be with someone we’re compatible with, of course, in bed. There are always two sides of making love. First one is the soft and soothing ones, which I have talked in the previous post. Second one is the wild, rough, and pleasurable ones, which I would like to talk now. Both of those sides will take us to paradise, indeed, when both people could enjoy it together; and that’s the essence of making love. It’s beyond just having sex, because it’s more than just two bodies meet together. Amidst the wilderness, it’s two souls that are mating to each other, embracing one another, and finding pleasure together. Just imagine how amazing it would be to find someone who is able to comprehend and counterbalance, more than just complement or fulfill one sided desire. Just so you know, women want to enjoy sex just as much as men.

Look what you’re doing, look what you’ve done. But in this jungle you can’t run, ‘cause what I got for you, I promise it's a killer. You’ll be banging on my chest, bang bang! Gorilla... you and me baby making love like gorillas.” –Bruno Mars, Gorilla

This one hell of a sexy song is still coming from Bruno Mars. It’s titled “Gorilla” and was released on September 10th 2013 as the fourth single taken from the singer’s second studio album, “Unorthodox Jukebox”. The day before the song’s release as a single, he performed it live at the VMAs with a laser show and an extra verse. This track is a midtempo rock and soft rock song with a power pop hook, written by Mars himself along with Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine. An official music video, starring Freida Pinto, was directed by Mars himself along with Cameron Buddy. It was released on October 15th 2013. The official remix (G-Mix) of the song features American singers Pharrell Williams and R. Kelly, and was released in Canada and US on November 12th 2013. Lyrically, though directly talk about sex, it is simply about the intense moment you lose yourself with the right person; it’s about the thrill of the chase and the catch. It contains an obvious metaphor of making love with the right person as making love like gorillas; as human follow the primary animal-like instinct.

The thing about making love is that it is the intense moment we lose ourselves with that person. We’re feeling high, of course, but what really matters is that we can be with somebody who can bring us the feeling of supremacy. What will be really meaningful is that we can be with somebody who can make us feel sexy and wanted and desirable without make us feel insecure about it. “I got a body full of liquor with a cocaine kicker. And I’m feeling like I’m thirty feet tall, so lay it down. You got your legs up in the sky with the devil in your eyes. Let me hear you say you want it all, say it now.” Insecurity is a big issue in sex. There are always fears and concerns regarding to whether we can satisfy our partner, whether our partner is willing to do this or that, whether it is alright to explore this or that. How amazing it would be if we can be with someone who is able to liberate us from all of those worries. Hence we could actually enjoy it. For making love is a form of human’s liberation from all that suppress them. It is supposed to be the moment of freedom.
In terms of sex, some people like it rough. And believe me, at times women do like it rough just as much as men. There are some women who even enjoy it more than men when it is rough and wild. When we like it rough, just imagine how amazing it would be if we can be with someone who is able to encourage us when we go a little rough with them. And how wonderful it would be if we can be with somebody who is as reckless as we are; who doesn’t give a fuck about what’s outside the room. And how satisfying it would be if we can be with someone who shares the same interest as us. “I got a fistful of your hair but you don’t look like you’re scared. You just smile and tell me, ‘Daddy, it’s yours.’ ‘Cause you know how I like it, you’s a dirty little lover. If the neighbors call the cops, call the sheriff, call the SWAT, we don’t stop. We keep rocking while they're knocking on our door. And you’re screaming, ‘Give it to me baby, give it to me motherfucker!’” Just imagine how fantastic it would be if we can be with someone who is a willing participant to indulge our base desires.
When we can finally be with that person who is able to comprehend and counterbalance us, it would change our regular night into one of intense sexual activity. And perhaps, that crazed night would change us into a wild animal, such as gorilla. “Look what you’re doing, look what you’ve done. But in this jungle you can’t run, ‘cause what I got for you, I promise it's a killer. You’ll be banging on my chest, bang bang! Gorilla... you and me baby making love like gorillas.” Having it wild and rough doesn’t make it less intimate than having it soft and in a soothing way. Moreover, when we meet the best partner in a way that we share the same interest and desire, then making love could never be better than that. “I bet you never ever felt so good. I got your body trembling like it should. You’ll never be the same baby once I’m done with you.” And after meeting that kind of person, we would never be the same again, since we would know how it feels to be the closest to heaven; since we would know how amazing it could be with the right person.

“Gorilla” reveals the dirty side of making love while “Locked Out Of Heaven” is mostly talking about the all-beautiful side. However, when it’s dirty then it doesn’t mean that it’s ugly. Even the ugliest thing must have the beautiful side of it. In this context, that will happen only when we meet the right partner. And how do we know when we meet that person? The right person would liberate us. They would make us feel the freedom to love and be loved and express it through every way. The right person would comprehend us. They would wash away our fears and insecurities and turn them into comfort and hope. The right person would counterbalance us. They would be more than just a complement, but a balancer. They would be our source of strength instead of being our cause of unconfident. The right person would be compatible with us in every way. With that person, we would feel the way we never felt before. With that person, we would discover things we never knew before. With that person, we would realize what being in love supposed to be. With that person, we would feel like we’ve been locked out of heaven all this time before, because they take you to the paradise. With that person, we would understand that making love could be so amazing, because we’re so compatible with them, and we’re making love like gorillas.

Ooh I got a body full of liquor with a cocaine kicker
And I’m feeling like I’m thirty feet tall, so lay it down, lay it down
You got your legs up in the sky with the devil in your eyes
Let me hear you say you want it all, say it now, say it now

Look what you’re doing, look what you’ve done
But in this jungle you can’t run, ‘cause what I got for you
I promise it's a killer, you’ll be banging on my chest
Bang bang, gorilla

Ooh, yeah, you and me baby making love like gorillas
Ooh, yeah, you and me baby making love like gorillas

Yeah, I got a fistful of your hair but you don’t look like you’re scared
You just smile and tell me, ‘Daddy, it’s yours.’
‘Cause you know how I like it, you’s a dirty little lover
If the neighbors call the cops, call the sheriff, call the SWAT, we don’t stop
We keep rocking while they're knocking on our door
[Clean version:] And you’re screaming, ‘Give it to me baby, give it like you wanna!’
[Explicit version:] And you’re screaming, ‘Give it to me baby, give it to me motherfucker!’

Oh, look what you’re doing, look what you’ve done
But in this jungle you can’t run, ‘cause what I got for you
I promise it's a killer, you’ll be banging on my chest
Bang bang, gorilla

Ooh, yeah, you and me baby making love like gorillas

Oh, you with me baby making love like gorillas
Ooh, yeah, you and me baby we’ll be fucking like gorillas
Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby, baby, oh yeah, yeah
