"It was inspired by a relationship. Like most of my work, it was autobiographical. For the video, it was a feeling that Andy Morahan and I were making really effective pop videos at a time when videos were still shamelessly naive, considering film was an accomplished medium." - George Michael
"The media has divided love and sex incredibly. The emphasis of the AIDS campaign has been on safe sex, but the campaign has missed relationships. It's missed emotion. It's missed monogamy. 'I Want Your Sex' is about attaching lust to love, not just to strangers." - George Michael
''I wasn't expecting the blanket ban. I think it's unfair because it's the first ban of its kind in a long time and I think that if I were not George Michael then I would have no problem being played on those stations. And it's incredibly irritating having a record out for a couple of weeks and knowing that people haven't heard it.'' - George Michael
