In a recent interview with radio host Howard Stern, Nick Cannon confessed to pleasuring himself to wife Mariah Carey’s songs.

Cannon has not made it a secret about listening to Carey’s music while the two get it on. “You’ve admitted to me that you make love to Mariah’s music and that you masturbate to her music,” the surprised US radio host said to Cannon.

He replied “Absolutely,” mentioning her 1993 hit single “Hero” as his song of choice “when she’s not there.” The actor turned television personality went onto to disclose precisely how he sets the mood.

“I don’t light candles, but sometimes you have to be reminded of what’s at home,” he clarified. “You’re married. You know how that goes. Sometimes there’s special nights when you turn the music on.”
