Strictly speaking, to make love just two things are necessary: another person and you. However, anything that gently accompanies you on your way to the climax will make the job more pleasant. And here pleasure is what counts. In addition, sex is a task of the five senses, and hearing is no less important than the others. Whispering dirty things into your partner’s ear is very exciting, but we’ll talk about that another day. Today we are dealing with stimulating your ears to the sound of music. They say that music soothes the savage beast, but we want just the opposite. If you want to try, with the following songs or with your own, make a playlist. Then press the play button and let us know how it goes.


“Je t’aime moi non plus” by Serge Gainsbourg

Ensure the lighting is suitable, prepare a light dinner with cheese and wine and let France into your bedroom. Oh là là! Cest formidable! My God! What a difference from other nights. Of course, it is not the same thing to get home from work, drop your briefcase in a corner and look at your partner with bleary eyes, than to suddenly come home with your new lewd spirit of delicate French seduction. You should refine yourself a little; there’s no harm in a little courtesy. The Arc de Triomphe is not in Paris by chance. Play this song and you’ll see what a difference it makes to your love-making. Words by Serge Gainsbourg. Moans by Brigitte Bardot.

“Can’t get enough of your love, babe” by Barry White

“There’s many times that we’ve loved, We’ve shared love and made love, it doesn’t seem to me like it’s enough, there’s just not enough of it, there’s just not enough.” All right, Barry. You are one of us. A guy for whom loving is the most important thing. And that, as you slide your intense and penetrating voice over the notes, will be perfect for our plan tonight. Barry, being with you (listening to you, we mean) makes you want to tear your clothes off, bite, lick, take things to the highest point our bodies and minds are capable of. The only thing is, we recommend you play the song, never the video. Seeing Barry, especially dressed in that way, could bring down even Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot’s libido. And we don’t want that now, do we?

“When a Man Loves a Woman” by Percy Sledge

Want to raise the temperature without raising the heating bill? When a man loves a woman (and vice versa) everything is possible. Ideally, the two of them should love each other, and the more they love each other, the more heat they give off. Choose the right time for this timeless hit to resonate around the walls and the ceiling, and certainly don’t expect to find all your clothes in the same place later: you’ll have to look for them all over the house. That’s the thing about love; when it’s intense it gets untidy. And that also makes you untidy because it plays havoc with your emotions. That’s why you like it so much. That’s why we all like it so much.

“Lets get it on” by Marvin Gaye

Be careful about listening to Marvin Gaye during office hours. And don’t do it just anywhere, it could be counterproductive. You heartrate will increase, closely followed by your libido, and all that may lead you to do something you will later regret. What a verse: “I’ve been really tryin’, baby, tryin’ to hold back this feeling for so long, and if you feel like I feel, baby, then, c’mon, oh, c’mon.” Come on, Marvin, come on! You deserve a chance. Although it seems that there are already many people who have given it you, because, in fact, your song is the favourite for love-making among users in many of the lists that appear on the Internet. Well, don’t worry, we’re also going to get it on.

“Wicked game” de Chris Isaak

Close your eyes, if your lover has not already closed them gently with their fingers. Sex with love (yes, it does actually exist, it’s not just a myth) can transport us through emotions to unexpected places. Just the same as music does. That’s why it works. That’s why this song is indispensable if you want an elevated sexual experience. That’s why you’ll play it tonight, like it just happened to be the next song waiting to be played, after dinner, when everything is quiet in the house. That’s why you will thank us. Well, not us, Mr. Chris Isaak. Enjoy it with health.

“Kiss” de Prince 

And if what you want is more oomph… “I want to be your fantasy, maybe you could be mine, you just leave it all up to me, we could have a good time, don’t have to be rich to be my girl, don’t have to be cool to rule my world”. Let’s give the keys to the castle of pleasure to Prince. Because, thanks to the star from Minneapolis, the sexual tension in couples around the world can explode in the less than four minutes that this song lasts. Just the title, “Kiss”, already tells us everything, gives us a good idea for breaking the ice and getting hot right from the start. And the end… you’ll tell us how it ends, but it looks like a happy ending, right?

“Ballads”, disco de John Coltrane Quartet

Finally, a recommendation that is not a song, but an entire disc. A little more than half an hour of jazz, a music created by improvisation. Like many of us, because we, like jazz, were also created by improvisation. It’s strange to imagine it, but you and I are here now because, one day, our respective parents got carried away. The rest is history. Our history. The history of our life, the life we create day by day. The more pleasurable it is, the easier it is for us to get carried away and enjoy ourselves. Just like when we listen to jazz. So, get out of the routine and improvise a bit, which doesn’t cost anything. From now on you can say that you are a music lover, quite literally.

Anyway. These are just a few ideas that can take you to heaven. As we said, with sex, as with music, everyone has their own taste and also their own rhythm. All options are equally good. Maybe what turns you on is techno-rumba, or whatever it’s called. Well go for it, everyone is free to get excited in the way they want. In fact, we now pass the buck to you: What song do you think is missing from the list? What is your favourite one for sex? With what song do you lose your head and let your body take control? Let’s see if, between us, we can produce the ultimate playlist for love-making. That way, the next time someone tells you they want to have sex with you, you will tell them that their proposal is indeed music for your ears, and if they want something from you, they should turn up the volume.
