Sex blog: Get jiggy with it

I’m going to cut to the chase real quick here: playing music while you’re getting it on is a must, simple as that. But from some resent empirical research conducted by yours truly, I found that the idea of playing music while you’re having a little bedroom fun isn’t common practice—*insert eye roll here.*

Before I recommend some great tunes to add to your NEW bedroom playlist, let me help you set the scene. Right now you must be thinking, “This sounds like a great idea, but how do I do this without awkwardly stopping all the action to press the play button?”

First things first, have your music-playing machine of choice out and at the ready. Having it within reach lets you press play and get the music going before you tumble into bed—no awkward stopping required.

Second, have a playlist queud up. Trust me, you will thank me for this one. There would be nothing worse than having Nickelback’s Photograph blasting in the background while you’re trying to get it on (don’t think I don’t know you have this in your iTunes library). A real quote from a friend, just to drive my point home: “If someone tried to bang me to Nickelback, I would probably punch them in the dick.”

Now onto the goods. Not every song is going to work in bed, as we’ve just established. So if you’re feeling a little lost about what kind of songs you might like to hear while getting down and dirty, here are a few of my favourites:

  1. Sex on Fire—Kings of Leon

Whether you like rock or not, this song had better be on your sexy-time playlist. Pair Caleb Followill’s raspy voice with some raw instrumental and you have a bangin’ song – literally. Your sex will be on fire . . . in the most positive way possible.

  1. Partition—Beyoncé

You can’t have a bedroom playlist without my girl Beyoncé. You simply can’t, it’s unheard of. If the song’s beats aren’t enough to get you going, just pay attention to the lyrics. Because you “ain’t never seen a booty like this” before, right?

  1. No Diggity—cover by Chet Faker, or the original by Blackstreet

Originally I was just going to recommend Chet Faker’s cover of No Diggity but after listening to the original by Blackstreet, I HAD to include it. Both songs are great—for the bed, that is.

  1. Poetic Justice—Kendrick Lamar Ft. Drake

What’s better than a song by Kendrick? A song by Kendrick featuring Drake.Not only does it do justice on the ears, but in the bedroom too. And take Kendrick’s advice on this one, you can get it! #motivationmonday

  1. Wonderwall—cover by Ryan Adams

This is the only song on the list that isn’t about sex or how hot your bod is, but it had to be added. Ryan Adams has the voice of an angel—AN ANGEL, PEOPLE. So what better way to end off your bedroom playlist than to be serenaded by the golden pipes of Ryan Adams himself?
