Unlike most of the material on Let's Get It On , which focused more on romance music including a brief social plea "Keep Gettin' It On" , this song focused entirely on the sexual portion of its subject. The song starts off with a rhythm section including guitars, a bass and drums and a saxophone solo. In the middle of the solo, induced moans can be heard from a couple before Gaye finally begins singing the lyrics. The term "ball" was slang for having sex.
