When it comes to a sex playlist we all have our own VERY strong opinions –unwavering beliefs for what is ideal for intimate encounters. I’ve heard playlists that are downright silly, shamelessly vulgar, 100% EDM, and a folk-polka hybrid that for a brief moment led me to believe I was banging a carnie.
There are so many angles to take and genres to explore. Trial and error is, unfortunately, our most common method of creating the perfect playlist, and often results in panicked reaches for our phones. Oh God, SKIP!
You probably already have a few go-to jams in mind, but starting a Pandora station based on a sweet banger means committing to a few rogue losers, not to mention the ads.
WE CAN’T AFFORD THAT. Obviously, I am in no position to tell you what music is sexy or what songs will satisfy your needs. What I have provided is simply a set of tips to help guide your creative process.
Tip #1: Take Notes
At the grocery store, in a restaurant, at the gym… you might hear something particularly arousing on the go. If so, write down the song title and artist in the notes section of your phone. DON’T BE A HERO; you will not remember the name or sound of a song later on when you’re compiling a playlist on your laptop.
This is important stuff and deserves proper documentation. You will thank yourself later.
Tip #2: Copy, Copy, Copy
Go ahead and rip off your friends’ playlists, past hookups, movie scenes, whatever you think is good. Don’t worry about being a copycat – this is just a smart move.
Pro-tip: If you pay for a Spotify subscription, you can search through your friends’ (and exes’) sex playlists for songs you know you like. 🙌🙌🙌
Tip #3: Identify Your Preferences
Mid blowjob might not be the time to drop the bass. OR MAYBE IT IS!
If you and your partner like to climax to the sound of your first Deadmou5 concert, that’s super chill. If acoustic Incubus covers make you feel some type of way, cheers to that.
You’re the DJ, which means you don’t have to play songs you don’t like. Woah. Power.
Tip #4: It’s Your Thang
Regardless of what you intend to communicate, you are revealing a little bit about yourself to your sexual partner(s). They might recognize a song you play and get stoked about it! It could also be an opportunity for connective pillow talk. If someone doesn’t like a song, that’s cool too. Just make a joke as you or they get your naked bootie out of bed to change it.
Pro-tip: Buy a Google Home or Amazon Echo and tell her “next song” – no need to break a good cuddle sesh.
Bottom line here is to surround your sex with the songs you truly love, not with hits you think other people will think are cool.
Tip #5: Make Multiple!
Why limit yourself? Go ahead, make a sex playlist for any and all occasions, partners, and situations.
Solo masturbation sesh? HELL YEAH. Make-out dry hump marathon? Duh. Love making for intertwined souls? Afternoon delight? Snow day sweetness? Abso-freakin-lutely.
Make ’em all. Make a library if needed. You might end up with one sex playlist that is your go-to, but why not give yourself some options?
