Slash has credited his wife with dreaming up the idea for his raunchy new music video with Fergie.
The controversial promo for their collaborative single Beautiful Dangerous sees the Black Eyed Peas singer playing a stalker who lures the rocker to her apartment, where she ties him to a bed and licks him - before stabbing him.
And Slash, who recently admitted the video would require re-editing to remove several saucy scenes, has confessed the idea for the intimate antics came from his wife Perla.
He tells NME.com, "My wife had told her (Fergie), 'You should tie him up and do all this stuff'. So she took my wife's word, and the next thing you know I'm tied to the bed.
"It was an interesting time, but it was a lot of fun. She's really great to hang out with... I could think of worse things I could be doing than being tied down and straddled by Fergie."
