Love in an Elevator -- Writer's Poke #160

For Writers:

There's nothing subtle about Aerosmith's "Love in an Elevator." The entire song is about the act of getting intimate in the most public of places -- be it a mail room or an elevator.

And according to the wikipedia entry for the song, the lyrics are at least partially based on singer Steven Tyler's own personal experiences. Imagine that.

Is this song really about love? Now that's another issue completely. Certainly the idea of "making love" is a euphemism that we all understand, but in the more literal sense of the word, where is the love?

Why not call the song by it's true name: "Lust in an Elevator"?

Where is the most public or inappropriate place that you've ever "made love"? Were you ever caught?


How do you control lust? Does it need controlling?

"I've looked on many women with lust. I've committed adultery in my heart many times. God knows I will do this and forgives me." -- Jimmy Carter
