You’ve probably either done it yourself, of know someone who has – made a playlist of songs that are perfect to play while having sex. From foreplay, to the deed itself, to the delightful afterglow, music during lovemaking can add a level of excitement as well as relaxation to the environment.
The best part – you may start to associate certain songs with sex, and you could get turned on just by listening to them! We gathered a few experts to get their top six songs for getting your groove on, and asked them to give us a list (aside from obvious classics like Marvin Gaye and Barry White) of what they have on their sexual playlists.
Kings of Leon – Sex Is On Fire: This one is quite obvious. Not only does do the lyrics relate directly to hot and steamy sex, the fast pace and great beat will help you keep the right rhythm for super passionate sessions.
Aaliyah – One In A Million: Great groove and swing to this song. It’s not overpowering with its base – it’s great for longer sex session where you’re focusing on duration and pleasure rather than a quick and dirty screw.
Garbage – #1 Crush: This alternative rock hit was featured on the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack, and is all about that uber-obsessive love that some of us go through with a new crush. It’s also got a beat that will get the hips going in a great rhythm in the sack.
Body Is a Wonderland – John Mayer: Romance, love, and holding a woman in the highest regard. John Mayer’s personal life may detract slightly from the lyrics to this song, but that doesn’t dampen the effect. This song is all about being thankful for the other body in your bed, and letting your lover know that you find them attractive.
Whole Lotta Love – Led Zeppelin: “I’m gonna give you every inch of my love….way down inside…..whole lotta love…. “ Robert Plant didn’t leave much to the imagination with this classic rock song!
Nine Inch Nails – Closer: This industrial rock classic is both a song and music video that rarely makes it past the sensors unedited, and for good reason! This song is about obsessive sex and the overwhelming desire to reach orgasm. Add the thudding beat, and you’ve got a song that makes almost every ‘booty playlist’ there is!
