The male holds on to the female's nose apparently to maintain control.
This session lasted 45 minutes of non stop activity. I was tired just watching and was relieved when it finally ended.

Yes, the cute and cuddly sea otter image is definitely in contrast to the male's behaviour when mating, Richard. They can be quite brutal, and not only towards their own species.
