Everyone should have a sex playlist.

It’s called being prepared, people!! I was on Snapchat the other day, and they had an article called something like “Guys Need to Stop Doing THIS During Hookups.” I was like: is it going for second base after five seconds? Is it shoving their tongue down your throat so far you might choke? No. It was having a sex playlist?!

It bugs me that Snapchat has no comment function on things like that, because I would have loved to see what people think about this. Personally, I have two questions. The first is, why does this author think only guys are playing music during sex? In doing research for this post, I found magazine articles in several girly magazines about songs to have sex to. I could be wrong, and I’m sure you guys will tell me, but I don’t think this is really a gender issue. My gut is telling me this author wanted to write an article that would get people talking, regardless of the level of truth.

The second question I have is simply…what the heck is wrong with a sex playlist?? I don’t know why, but when I’m listening to music, I spend a decent amount of time thinking about whether the songs I’m listening to would be good to do the deed to. And in every movie since the beginning of time, when the token couple is about to do it, they put on music. I’ve been interested in writing this post for a long time, but this solidified my ~desire~

So here we all are, reading my sex playlist.

Okay, if I’m being honest, I made this just for you guys. I didn’t just have a sex playlist chillin’ in my phone, waiting for an opportunity to show off it’s awesomeness. I like to be prepared, but I haven’t reached that level yet. But now that it’s made, I truly believe it’s the best one ever made. I mean, I have songs for every occasion. Some of these are super raunchy, like Pony by Ginuwine. Some are sultry, like Burning Desire by Lana Del Rey. A few are sweet and loving, like Adore You by Miley Cyrus, and I even have a few fun and flirty ones like Straight Up and Down by Bruno Mars. You are sure to find something you like on this list! Happy listening 😉

I'm Nicole, and I've always known that I was meant to be a blogger. I have two fails under my belt and am working hard to make the third time a charm with my newest endeavor, Uninspired. I'm a grad student in marriage and family therapy, but I also love creative writing, cooking and baking, reading, and DIY, which all get to shine in this little lifestyle blog of mine.


  1. omg I saw that SAME article on snapchat!! I was surprised…there’s so many stupid things they could’ve mentioned, but everybody loves music! You listed some awesome songs that I’d def have to agree with!

    • Right?! What a weird thing to hate about hooking up! I’m sure there are a lot of people out there who don’t like it, but I wouldn’t have thought it would be enough to write an article about it like it’s something that has to stop immediately. Thanks for your comment, and glad you like some of the songs!

    • Thanks Jordyn! This post was so fun to write, so I’m glad people aren’t too weirded out by it! 🙂

  2. Ooh! That sounds like an amazing playlist. Gonna try them out 😉 Why does this author think only guys are playing music during sex. Hahahha

    • I know, right?? I always feel more comfortable when there’s something going on in the background, and TV can be kind of dangerous because they could say or do something reeeaally un-sexy lol. Music is perfect, especially when you know the playlist was made for exactly this! Thanks for your comment!

  3. Girl I love this list! I might turn it into a Spotify playlist hahaha!

    Definitely repinning.

    • If you take it on for yourself, write a post about how it goes! 🙂 I’d love to read that! Thanks for your comment!

  4. Oh my God I lost it when I read your guesses for what men need to stop doing! Also, after watching Pitch Perfect last night, I kept looking for Titanium on the list! “It really builds…” – Brittany Snow

    • Ooooh that’s a good one! Maybe I’ll update this post in the future if readers come up with more suggestions! Thanks for the comment, Kelly!

  5. While I love the idea of a sex playlist, I’m dismayed that you would have so much Lana Del Rey and NOT ONE Marvin Gaye

    • Haha fair point! I forgot all about him and his reputation for romance. What songs of his would you add?

      • Diana Sherman Reply

        “Lets Get It” On is the best Marvin Gay song. I’ve had several sex tapes over several years. The’re really nice to have. No surprises. Also I made tapes for my moods. When down and out I usually listen to sad songs like many Match Box 20 songs are. I guess to cry. When I need to get moving I listen to my hiphop tape with only really good beats on them.

        • I can’t believe I didn’t put any Marvin Gaye! I’ll definitely have to add this song in at least. And I have playlists on my phone like that, too! It’s always great to have some go-to songs for when you’re feeling certain things 🙂 Thanks for your comment!

  6. Michael Craxi Reply

    Kinda thought you’d create a spotify playlist or something…

    • Good idea! I see you found the person who left their own playlist in the comments, so I hope that helps you out, but I’ll definitely work on that soon

    • Yeah I didn’t know when I made it that people used Spotify so much! A lot of people have been asking so I’ll definitely do that!
