* IntercourseWithYou: Not common in her songs, but "Brown Skin" basically contains a lot of candy related metaphors, such as chocolate or licorice. The most obvious innuendo is "Every time I let you in, abracadabra magic happens as we swim/Higher and higher finally we reach heaven/Come back to earth and then we do it all again".
