People often show this sleeve the wrong way 'round. The main 45cat pic is right, the start of the YouTube video is wrong. Many people jump to the conventional 'text runs horizontal' conclusion.

Just noticed... If you read the credits on the back of the sleeve, it actually says 'Front Cover Painting by Ian Youngs'. That goes to explain why the cover falls well short of Picasso's original work.

Well, clearly someone was aware of the erotic subtext, not only because of the obvious link to the song title, but because if you compare the cover pic with the original painting, the phallus has been de-phallusised on the cover, ie the end of it is no longer rounded; destroying the whole visual idea really. The crop on the cover also eliminates the position of the woman's hands, and that is a further sanitisation. Good idea to use the pic but you have to wonder why they bothered with it, considering all the compromises they decided to include.

I have an advert for this single that ran in a UK trade magazine prior to this single's release. It says the first copies of this single are in "PURPLE PLASTIC". So hopefully that is definitive proof that the first UK copies were indeed purple. Funny how the description of the colour has changed from purple to pink over the years. I don't have a copy of this single myself, so can't say whether Stiff were more right calling it purple than people are nowadays calling it pink!

There is a lot of misunderstanding about this sleeve. I hope I have cleared it up.
(Unfortunately the list stiffone linked-to below is neither definitive or 100% accurate.)

The main pic used here on 45cat shows the back of the sleeve (thumbgrip and sleeve folds give this away). Shouldn't the main pic on 45cat show the front of the sleeve (which would be a totally plain white square)?
