'Sexual Healing'
The song's inspiration came when writer David Ritz interviewed Gaye for a biography and pointed out Gaye's pornographic comic book, telling him he "needed sexual healing." Gaye asked Ritz to write a poem about it, which later became the rough lyrics to this song.

Lustful Lyric: 'The love you give me will free me / If you don't know the thing you're dealing / Oh I can tell you, darling, that it's sexual healing'
Marvin Gaye Sexual Healing
