When you have three girls on their hands and knees in front of you, naked, ready to take it. You can pick any girl you choose at any time, and can smack all their asses, sort of like playing a very sexual drumset.
Bob: Hey, you see those three girls over there?

Tom: Yeah, they're hot!

Bob: Yeah, when i take them home later, i'm gonna be Playing the Drums!
