Wet Dream Cousin is an unreleased instrumental, recorded by Prince, possibly late 1982 at Prince’s Kiowa Trail Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Bobby Z. was supposedly also present for this session, although all drums on the track are from the Linn LM1 drum machine. The track was intended for Vanity 6’s planned second album. When Vanity left the group and decided not to participate in the Purple Rain movie, Prince instead began the group Apollonia 6. The title would likely have changed if vocals were added (the title was given because of the musical similarity to Wet Dream). The song was left unfinished, however, and is not known to have been considered for the Apollonia 6 album.

Prince gave the track to Eric Leeds in July 1989 (along with Evolsidog, You’re All I Want, My Summertime Thang, Pickle, U Should Be Mine, Vibrator, The Max and XYZ) when considering songs for a new Madhouse album (later called 26, which later evolved into Eric Leeds’ solo album Times Squared); it is not believed that Leeds worked on the track, however.
