17 Songs for Sensual Lovemaking

Not all songs are conducive to romance. Here are a few to get you started if you are putting together a CD for a romantic evening or afternoon.

Music can enhance various aspects of our lives. The right music can create a sense of timelessness that will induce an epiphany, or peak experience This can be very useful for romantic situations. What is the right music? Some might argue that it is whatever music you like. Not so. I like The Ramones, Sex Pistols, and Joy Division, however, the music these groups created isn’t going to fit the criteria in this case. I also like the music of Johnny Cash, but, Mr. Cash’s music doesn’t fit the criteria either. Some pieces of Classical, or World Music, do fit the criteria, however, other pieces do not. Lyrics that speak only about sex may be appealing to one person, but are not conducive to most people, especially from an intimate romance point of view.

So, what is the musical criteria for inducing epiphanies, and peak experiences, during lovemaking? The music should be seem flowing like waves crashing against a shore or like the rising and falling of breath. The rhythms should be a mixture of staccato, flowing, and chaotic. If the pieces have lyrics they should be about timeless love, or the words should be obscured by the music, cryptic, or in a language the participants do not understand. Likewise the lyrics should not be so captivating, as with story telling songs, that they are distracting. There are a few rock, new wave, and world beat songs that have the strange illusion of being slower than the actual tempo of the song. Songs with this illusion are preferred as they serve two purposes. The purpose of giving a sense of timelessness and the purpose of slowing down climax and prolonging the experience.

When a couple are first together every sexual experience may seem significant, however over time that can wane, these songs are set to enhance your relationship and bring back that early romance. Although some songs that are special to a couple may also help, songs heard daily on the radio while at work, or in the car, won’t do the trick anymore because of association with work, and so on.

Some people have created music to enhance lovemaking, however, I find many of these efforts lacking in soul or heart. They sound too commercial. For my own experiences I prefer to use music that was created because it needed to be created by a artist or composer rather than as a commercial product.

    ya, its always better to have a CD on, rather than TV or radio, both of which can be distracting, and thats never good.

    Got to go with Mazzy Star – though I like mine with the lights ON and the music OFF generally!

    Um- these songs suck for lovemaking. FYI. There is ALOT more sensual and flowing music available out there- maybe like TWO of these songs are good. The rest would just be annoying.

    Thanks for the music tips! I wish you had posted more, you know, for those long sessions ;)
    I also had to remove some of these from my collection because they were too slow.
