Step inside, walk this way
You and me babe, hey! Hey!

Love is like a bomb baby c'mon get it on
Livin' like a lover with a radar phone
Lookin' like a tramp like a video vamp
Demolition woman can I be your man
Razzle 'n' dazzle 'n' flash a...

    The song is about sex but the backdrop appears to be about those video booths where the girl worked live behind a mirror and privately entertained guys that put money into the slots - these were fairly common in porn shops during the early 1980's. I know this all too well - used to "perform" at one when I was in college - we were sometimes referred to as "mirror mannequins" by the patrons. Why's that? You entered a private booth, the screen started off as a "mirror" until you put in your money. Some of the screens used a stoplight sequence when getting ready to start: "Red light, yellow light, green-a-light go! Crazy little woman in a one man show. Mirror queen, mannequin, rhythm of love..." The guys would masturbate while we stripped, teased, touched ourselves & danced. If you failed to keep putting in money - the arcade operator would knock on your door to leave the booth: "You gotta squeeze a little, squeeze a little, tease a little more. Easy operator come a knockin' on my door".

    I'm sure they used a bunch of filler lyrics to make it flow and rhyme - but this song has way too many metaphors to these old 1-on-1 peep shows to not be based upon it!

    OK.
    The lyric is a over though.
    But I assumed with what the writers have said is finding that vocabulary meets feel style of Bowie, was tidbits of tributes to bubble gum music.
    How odd we hear what we do in a lyric.

    Take the bottle
    Shake it up

    That sounds alot like masturbation or a handjob

    Joplin, MO : What was the true meaning behind "Pour Some Sugar on Me"?

    Joe Elliott: There wasn't any meaning. That was the wonderful thing about the '80s. We were trying to write a song that was phonetically friendly. We grew up listening to David Bowie and Marc Bolan, who wrote great songs that didn't make sense. "Sugar" was just a great title. It's just an analogy for give it to me, baby. "I Want To Hold Your Hand"? Please.

    Pour Some Sugar On Me is strictly about sex. "Love is like a bomb, babe, c'mon get it on" is a dead give away. "take the bottle, shake it up, break the bubble, break it up", from what I understand is about the Climax.
