Ali, at the height of pregnancy.

Listen REALLY carefully to the lyrics. What sounds semi-x-rated is pretty much NOT. For example, the "as long as you're on her knees and she's not on her back" bit: husbands tend to be on their knees while practicing Lamaze breathing, and women absolutely can't be on their backs while very pregnant, as their insides tend to get smushed.

There's more, too. Go listen.

Yep, Sunny's right.

I know that most people thought it was referring to oral sex. Tsk! Dirty minds.

Anyway ... from what I gather, it was a POP b-side. Or was written during/around that time.

There is also a book out that has explantions for U2 songs (forget what it is called but "heart" is in the name of the title I think). The book says this at least partially has to do with Bono's mother. I can also see how it is about Ali being pregnant.

Also, as far as I am aware, this song WAS a Pop B-side, or was at least recorded around that time and not released.

I believe the book you're referring to is "Into the Heart." However, dun' quote me on that one, since I'm about to pass out from lack of sleep.
