Most people have a soundtrack for when they get down to business. Whether it be the background noise on the TV, straight up silence or a carefully crafted Spotify playlist, everyone likes creating a certain type of atmosphere for sexy time. For those that are fans of climaxing with musical accompaniment, I’ve put together a list of my recommended sex jams. PS – these are songs I would actually want to hear during a moment of seduction, so no “I’ll Make Love to You,” “I Wanna Sex You Up,” or “Bump N’ Grind.” Those would just cause raucous laughter.
1. “Rocket” – Beyoncé
Because who isn’t instantly ready to rumble when they hear the first line of this song? “Let me sit this aaaaaaass on you.” Yes to sitting. Yes to ass. Yes to everything.
2. “Pony” – Ginuwine
The ultimate boner jam that you’ve (literally) been riding to since high school.
3. “Doin’ It” – LL Cool J ft. Leshaun
The perfect blend of sexy and raunchy, forever giving you the power to call a guy “daddy” in a totally non-creepy way.
4. “Often” – The Weeknd
Let’s just put it this way… I can’t listen to The Weeknd at work anymore.
5. “Thinkin’ Bout You” – Frank Ocean
Smooth as butter. Or lube. Whatever, it’s a good freaking song to boom boom to.
6. “My All” – Mariah Carey
The first song I ever heard that had me questioning the tingling sensation in my lady parts.
7. “Adore You” – Miley Cyrus
Say what you want about ‘ol girl, but this song will arouse you in 2.5 seconds. Best played when sexing someone you really care about. If only for all the L bombs that she drops throughout.
8. “The Worst” – Jhené Aiko
Because hate sex needs a soundtrack too.
9. “Bad” – Wale ft. Rihanna
The bad bitch anthem that doubles as an amazing sex tune. There’s even a creaking bed in the background. If that’s not a direct instruction to take someone to bed, I don’t know what is.
10. “Body Party” – Ciara
Complete with a “My Boo” sample, this song just drips raw sexuality.
11. “Red Light Special” – TLC
No one makes #sexual music for women quite like the gals of TLC.
12. “Nice & Slow” – Usher
Tell me you don’t ~feel something~ when Usher starts spelling his name mid-song.
13. “Un-thinkable (I’m Ready)” – Alicia Keys
If you’re finally ready to take your courtship to the next level, this is the perfect song to ease into that transition.
14. “Crave You (Adventure Club Remix)” – Flight Facilities
For when you finally get that unrequited crush between yo sheets. Although that whole “dripping in gold” part could certainly be misinterpreted.
15. “Toma” – Pitbull ft. Lil’ Jon
When you just want to get down and dirty with the quickness.
16. “Anywhere” – 112 ft. Lil’ Zane
This song is pretty much a sex tutorial that everyone over the age of 17 needs to listen to immediately.
17. “My Neck, My Back” – Khia
If you’re in a particularly filthy mood, Khia’s aggressive vocals will let your partner know how you’d like for them to throw down.
18. “Give It To You” – Jordan Knight
Your sexual awakening happened to a song by an ex-member of New Kids on the Block. #dealwithit
19. “Gorilla” – Bruno Mars
Let Bruno Mars’ angelic voice be your guide as you bang, bang all you damn well please.
20. “Studio” – Schoolboy Q
No metaphors, just straight to the point grinding.
21. “Hands Down” – Dashboard Confessional
For the throwback emo kid in you.
22. “SexyBack” – Justin Timberlake ft. Timbaland
I mean, does this one even NEED an explanation?
