Music can be a great addition to sex as long as you pick something that you both like. It is great to put you in the mood, but also drown out the noise of things going on around you.
When I’m looking for the right kind of music for sex, there are a few things I keep in mind. For one, I don’t choose music videos that are really racy. I usually look for the lyric video. Also, I tend to go for the clean version of a song or the ones with the radio edits.
The other things I usually consider when picking out a sex song playlist is tempo. You may want slower music at some points and faster at others. Just remember, that you will tend to move with the tempo of the music so don’t make it too fast or slow for what you’re doing.
Another thing I consider is whether or not a playlist has a ton of ads in the middle of it. That can be really distracting depending on what part of the love making you are in.
Below are some YouTube songs and playlist you might consider.
MUSIC FOR FOREPLAY
Anything I can dance to is fair game if we’re using music for foreplay. Have fun with the time you spend together in foreplay. It’s ok to be silly, flirty, or even sexy. You might even consider something you can dance to together.
Here are a few songs to consider:
Come and Get it – Selena Gomez
As Long As You Love Me – Justin Bieber
What Makes You Beautiful – One Direction
Fantasy – Mariah Carey
Earned It – The Weekend
Die a Happy Man – Thomas Rhett
My Person – Spencer Crandall
INSTRUMENTAL SONGS FOR SEX
If there is music playing that I know the words to, it can be hard for me to focus on what I’m doing. For that reason, the music I go with can’t have lyrics that are going to distract me. For that matter, I try to stay away from lyrics that aren’t focused on love. Breakup songs or other depressing subject matter isn’t your best option.
Instrumental jazz is my personal preference for romantic music. Of course, I still have to find the right rhythm, because some jazz is fairly upbeat. I always go for soft and slow beats that feature a saxophone.
There are plenty of other types of instrumental music you can go with if jazz isn’t your thing. I usually put on a youtube playlist.
Here’s a few playlists to check out:
You can find romantic song playlists from every genre and decade. Try and look for something that you both will enjoy.

STICK WITH SONGS THAT BRING YOU GOOD MEMORIES
Music can cause you to bounce into another time before you know it. Only play songs that remind you of good times in your marriage and life. It can be a real mood killer to play something that reminds you of a high school breakup or another tragedy.
Pretty much everyone moves to the beat of the music. Choose something that will go at the pace you want to move during your times of intimacy. You’ll want to stay away from things that are really fast, because it’ll be hard to move at the right speed.
When you choose music for sexy times, just try something and see what you think. Like anything in sex, give it a go and see how you respond to it. You might find you really love listening to music during intimate times.
