I think that there is nothing to suggest, sex with strangers, simply sex with people you know you are just going to be selfish with and use. hence...

they played this crappy gig in the garage in london, there were about 100 people there, but they were already getting kinda big there, although Matt hadn't the confidence to look up at the crowd, cute now they are the best live band in brittain (according to nme and some select people). I also thought like lauradonaghy this song was about an unsopportive love, but this could well be a girlfriend, town or parents even. Anyway, i'm glad they are HUGE now...
