He needs love, affection, nurturing and enjoys being pampered - all of which is fine, as long as Josh Homme is willing to give as well as receive the attention and "babying". Josh has a rather childish dependency on loved ones, which can make him cling to them, or be very uncomfortable with any conflict that could conceivably lead to separation. Creating a loving family is certainly a challenge for Josh - one that can be enormously satisfying if he can achieve it, and a source of great sadness if he cannot.
