Music and Sex?


There's something to be said about setting the mood when you're about to get busy with your boyfriend. Some people like candles, others like bubble baths, and a lot of people like setting the scene with music in the background.

I actually prefer no music whatsoever, but if it's quiet enough and has no words, then I'm cool with it. What about you? Do you like music playing while you're getting it on? If so, what kind? Sweet, gentle background melodies? Loud rock n' roll? Erotic, sexual music? Or do you not really care?

Its nice to have some music sometimes, the beat sets the rythym :P but silence and just hearing us is nice enough

Oh my, what's with the spelling? It's so close to the end of work, let's try it again! Haha. Before I lost my virginity I would hear some songs and think "this would be great during sex." But since sex came along...the music has been off, mostly, and I haven't played any of "those" songs yet.

I respond very strongly to sounds, music, and even silence, so for me what I hear can really affect how sex would be for me. I wouldn't care either way.

I don't like music myself, but I need a copy of Krampalicious' CD, lol.

Haha Niko, woody woodpecker huh? ;) Anyway, I don't mind music. But sometimes I do find it a bit tacky, rnb stuff. I prefer easy listening lounge music

i have a precisely calibrated love-makin' mix of slow jamz that includes a healthy dose of keith sweat, old school r kelly, and a substantial amout of eisley brothers. i haven't busted it out in a while. maybe i will the next time the bf comes into town... the weirdest music i ever made love to was the shins. it was bizarre, because they're one of my favorite bands in real life and they're not exactly a "sexy" band.

Inspector Gadget theme Esix? Mind you I did lose my virginity on a Saturday morning with the looney tune theme song on in the background. I don't recommend cartoon music - not sexy.

We don't usually turn music on, but D'Angelo is perfect for such an occasion.

Music is great and it can definitely make sex different from time to time. For instance, Metallica = rough and naughty, 50 cent = gansta fly, Beyonce = sensual...all so different and SOOOOO great!

I usually don't care either way but occasionally I do enjoy some Joe or Ginuwine playing in the background. Or Playa, too.

never had music playing, but would be nice to try it ;) but i guess if i did, it would have to be instrumental, lyrics would be to distracting

I've never actually had music playing during sex, so it doesn't really matter to me.

I dont like music on, it feels to cheesy and scripted.
nikodarling nikodarling 8 years
For the most part it doesn't really matter to me. sometimes I like something slow and romantic, sometimes I want something rockin', but its certainly not a necessity for me. As long as its not something I hate like country or heavy metal I'm good.

I like music sometimes. But if there isn't any I don't mind. As for what type... I prefer romantic standards and some slow stuff. I do not like cheesy love songs or anything distracting. So... like John Legend, Feist, a little Ella and Louis... these are OK by me.
