"I Want Your Sex" is a song by English singer-songwriter George Michael. Released as a single in June 1987, it was the third hit from the soundtrack to Beverly Hills Cop II and the first single from Michael's then-upcoming debut solo album Faith.
The video featured George Michael's girlfriend at the time (make-up artist Kathy Jeung) to emphasize that he was in a monogamous relationship; at one point, he is shown using lipstick to write the words "explore" and "monogamy" on her back. A Spanish model was also used for naked scenes in a way that allowed the audience to assume they were the same woman; these shots are interspersed with intentionally blurred footage of George Michael dancing and singing the song.
The music video for "I Want Your Sex" generated controversy over its sexual themes. In 2002, MTV2's countdown of MTV's Most Controversial Videos Ever to Air on MTV included the video for "I Want Your Sex" at #3. The originally video cut appears on the TwentyFive compilation 2-DVD set.
Although it is one of Michael's biggest hits, the song has been largely ignored by him; he has not performed it since the Faith World Tour and it does not appear on the 2006 retrospective TwentyFive
