Music is an awesome part of life. It adds a new dimension to commutes, boring work days, chores, and everything else. But one of the places music can add the most is in the bedroom.
If you want to take your game to the next level, having the perfect playlist on in the background is a great way to do it. Below we’ve compiled a list of some of the best sex songs.
“Closer” by Nine Inch Nails
“Closer” by Nine Inch Nails may be a nostalgic classic, but it gets right down to the point. It includes the lyrics “I want to feel you from the inside” and “I want to fuck you like an animal.” And underneath the erotic lyrics, there’s a throbbing beat that’s perfect to get down to.
“Hot in Here” by Nelly
You can’t have a sex playlist without some of the classics, and “Hot in Here” definitely makes that list. I think we’ve all heard the steamy lyrics, “It’s getting hot in here, so take off all your clothes.” And what could be better to set the mood than that?
“Like a Virgin” by Madonna
Whether or not this is your (or your partner’s) first time, “Like a Virgin” is a great one to have on any sex playlist. It’s got a fun beat that can keep things light while you’re getting hot and heavy, and the lyrics are frank and captivating. (As a note, if you’re in the Shrek generation, it may be best to stay away from this one; it’ll give you instant mental pictures of ogres.)
“My Humps” by Black Eyed Peas
“My Humps” is another one of those that we all grew up hearing without really knowing what it meant. But it really is a pretty sexy song when it comes down to it. This lady has a serious appreciation for her body, and you’d better be able to appreciate it too when it’s time to get down!
“I’m on Fire” by Bruce Springsteen
Bruce Springsteen is one of the all-time greats, and “I’m on Fire” has earned a spot among all sexy songs. The song conjures up images of a sweaty, muscle-bound mechanic looking at a sexy lady in her fine car. It’s everything gritty and tactile about sex, and it’s perfect for a playlist like this.
“Side to Side” by Ariana Grande
Everyone knows one of the markers of really great sex is not being able to walk straight the next day. Ariana Grande’s “Side to Side” deals with exactly that, saying “You got me walking side to side.” Call it inspiration or a prediction of how you’ll be feeling tomorrow, it’s a great sex song.
“Climax” by Usher
Okay, now how can you leave a song entitled “Climax” off a list of best sex songs? It’s true, Usher is (supposedly) talking about something else in this song. But we all know what the song’s really about, and it makes for great background music in the bedroom.
“Satisfaction” by the Rolling Stones
“Satisfaction” has all the hot and heavy energy of the Rolling Stones and classic rock. The style of the song seems to drop you into a sweaty, hazy miasma with the right amounts of grind and teeth-clenching drive. And, like Usher’s number, it does point to a definite end goal – as Mick Jagger phrases it, satisfaction.
“Anaconda” by Nicki Minaj
Even without the music video, Anaconda is a pretty primal song to have going when you’re getting down. But the music video drives this song to all new heights of erotic thrill. No matter what your orientation is, there’s something thirst-inducing about watching Nicki twerk with her girls.
“Your Body is a Wonderland” by John Mayer
On the softer side of things, John Mayer brings “Your Body is a Wonderland” to the sex song list. Sometimes, you and your partner want to take things slow and appreciate each other’s bodies. This song gives you time and space to do that, and it feels good to be with a partner who feels that way about your body.
“Criminal” by Fiona Apple
“Criminal” starts off with a sultry bass line that sets the tone for the whole rest of the song (and your night). Then Fiona starts in with the lyrics “I’ve been a bad, bad girl” and the song is off. Her voice is low enough to be sensual, and the song has a gyrating vibe that’s perfect for getting down.
“Kiss It Better” by Rhianna
Of course, no list of sex songs is complete without some Rhianna, and “Kiss It Better” is the perfect addition. Rhianna asks the question “What are you willing to do” and says “take it back all night.” The song has a funky electronic slide that weaves through the background and makes everything a little more erotic.
“Body Party” by Ciara
“Body Party” is perfect for when you want to slow things down, with a jazzy sort of beat to it. Listening to it feels like slow, dirty sex, and lyrics like “can’t keep my hands off you” and “your body’s my party” only add to the mood. If you like, you can add some phalogenic traction, but we think this song will get you there all on its own.
“Toxic” by Brittany Spears
We all remember the famous opening to Brittany’s “Toxic” and that alone would qualify it to be on this list. But Brittany’s lyrics “I can’t wait, I need a hit” and a driving musical score make it perfect for when you want to mix things up in bed.
