My sex play list

I’ve seen a few lists here and there that tell you a few songs to which you should have sex. I’m not sure about you, but 5 songs doesn’t cut it for me. I built a playlist for my Faraway Lover when we were together (partly to drown out the sounds of sex through hotel walls) and I’ve been tweaking it ever since. I thought I would share it with all of you.

Here was my criteria – the song has to be about sex and/or be sexy or sensual, and have a good rhythm. If the song is about sex, but it doesn’t make me want to move my hips a certain way, then forget it. There’s nothing like grinding your hips into your mate to some awesome reggae. I also wanted to collate a list that wasn’t too heavy on any one style (although blues admittedly is featured prominently), in case my lover was picky. It’s also a bit of a test of someone’s musical flexibility – there are some cheesy songs (Sexual Healing and Pour Some Sugar On Me come to mind) and I like to see what someone’s response is to them, since I have a musical sense of humor and I want them to as well.

So here is my list. If you think I’ve missed something critical to good sex, let me know. This is a 5 hour playlist.

Oh, and since I still love love love making mixed “tapes” for people…if you really want a copy just email me and I’ll see what we can sort out.

  1. Re: Red Red Wine. I really prefer the original Neil Diamond. He started out as a songwriter, of course, and he actually wrote that for Ray Charles to sing, which would have been fantastic. Apparently Ray didn’t like it.

  2. Hey there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my
    zynga group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content.
    Please let me know. Thanks

  3. What an interesting list. Much fun in there!! There are a few on this list that would have me laughing if they came on during sex (this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but rather the timing in conjunction with what I was doing when it played) with the potential to disrupt an important moment.

    We are all so unique. I know so many of these tunes by heart (both vocally and on the guitar) and worry that the lyrics and even picturing chording or fingering (no pun) the riffs would pop into my head. No, I go with music that is very much less lyrically familiar or vocally driven. It can be very distracting to be in the middle of having my face between Savannah’s legs and see her rocking out to Joan Jett or Def Leppard. 😉

    • Yes, I do know what you mean. When needing to concentrate on other things I tend to not be able to listen to music like this.

      But sex? I just like it. And I will sometimes just hit the “next” button if it’s the wrong timing. But even then, I’m usually too much into the sex to be too distracted. But that’s just me.

  4. Here’s one in French to add to your list.

    Interpreted by Juliette Gréco : Déshabillez-moi (Undress me…)

    An English version exists, by the same singer. While the voice seems to communicate what it sings, it somehow doesn’t mean to same for me in English as it does in French. It just doesn’t “work” the same way on my mind.

    I was 19 years old when the song first came out. Bought the vinyl. Still have it. Although she is as old as my mother would be, couldn’t help fantasizing about all sorts of things when listening to her singing it. Juliette Greco is 89 y.o. today, and still performs, and still sings it.

What do you think?
