The Sensual Everafter is the sixth track on Prince’s 24th album The Rainbow Children, his first album after reverting to the name Prince. In late 2001, it was also included as the second track on the She Loves Me 4 Me "Jazz Sampler" promo CD available only in the USA.

Specific recording dates are unknown, but it is likely that basic tracking took place in late 2000 or early 2001 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The track is mostly instrumental, but with spoken narrative to continue the album’s story. "The Wise One" seduces "The Muse" who is sent to be his wife, bringing her into "the sensual everafter". The narrative is continued at the beginning of 1+1+1 Is 3.
