I wrote them all. In society there’s this confusion between love and sex. People think they want love and that they’ll get it through sex. Mike is very clear on the difference between love and sex because he has sex for a living. That’s why his line was so important. ‘I love you, and you don’t have to pay me’ - I’m so glad I wrote that line.
