Music can inspire many things. It can lift your spirits. It can soothe your soul. It can also serve as the soundtrack to a fantastic sex life if you take the time to set your mood and create your own sexy playlist.
Studies have shown that listening to music releases dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s center of pleasure. Increased levels of dopamine also lead to increased levels of stamina. Listening to sensual rhythms during sex can improve your movement and put you in harmony together.
Music can also cover up some of the less sensual sounds that sex generates like that squeaking bed for instance. It can also make those silent moments less awkward. It may be easier for a shy partner to let loose and be less self-conscious about making noise if there is other sound to absorb it. Just be careful not to make it so loud that you can’t hear your partner (unless you are drowning out your passions so the kids don’t hear you). Music is great for that too!
I recommend creating a sexy playlist so you set the mood ahead of time. It saves you from whatever mood killing commercials and songs the radio might deliver. You can even create a few sexy playlists depending on what kind of sex you want to have in that moment, soft and soulful or quick, down and dirty.
To get you started, I’ve compiled my best provocative picks. Check them out on iTunes. Take what you like and leave the rest but I’m confident in the list because I’ve been naked with each of these songs at least twice. Enjoy!
