Minchin said in an interview that "the release you are driven towards when you are wanting to fuck someone is fucking. But the song, slightly ironically, drives towards a release of relief, the bliss, the almost-ecstatic orgasmic bliss of having not fucked up."
So, by his own admission above, he was not looking for company but rather for the release of fucking someone. and instead of merely fucking, he raids the mini-bar and passes out.
I mean, sure, kudos for not fucking someone simply because you could. And seeing how these "feelings" were made into a song, i'm guessing that some of the song was simply an attempt to catch the attention of listeners (boost ratings).
btw, who thinks raiding the minibar and passing out is a "good alternative" to infidelity? ... yikes.
(perhaps i'm just jealous that i'm not a rockstar and therefore have not had to cope with these particular dangerous impulses)
A much more relatable situation re: dangerous impulses, for me, would be if AP contacted me and invited me out for a drink to "catch up" during the holidays. Personally, I feel strong enough today to thwart AP's advances, but I get that this thread was opened in an attempt to draw out potential WSs who may be struggling with staying on the straight and narrow.
In keeping with the intent of the thread, good on Minchin for recognizing the problem as a problem before it became an even bigger problem-- may he continue to ride the orgasmic bliss of NOT fucking up (but maybe go for a run next time, buddy, instead of hitting the minibar!).
