Jermaine Stewart had several minor hits, and one major one that defined him. This hit was an ode to abstinence in the 80's. Sadly, he is no longer with us - he died in 1997 of AIDS-related liver cancer, a death some could find ironic given the theme of his biggest hit (I don't find it ironic - just sad). His music still is, though - this song, in its sexual resistance, is fun and happy and full of energy.
Plus, I think it probably did wonders for the sales of cherry wine.
