SIB will be posting musings, advice, and her thoughts here on a weekly basis. Be warned, this IS a sex column and although there won’t be any steamy visuals (it’s not porn, ya know?) the text WILL be NSFW.
Music can set the tone for almost anything you want it to. I firmly believe that good songs can be lightning rods to transport us into a mood, another time, another place, etc. I have read a few articles and stories that discuss how music can affect our behavior, how music is used in health care through therapy, how music can improve depression, and even how music can increase our intelligence. This got me thinking – shouldn’t it stand to reason then that music can also enhance our sexuality? I am not one to always listen to music while having sex, but it can be very enjoyable.
In addition, the great thing about music is there is such a wide variety out there that it is very easy to find the best music to match your sex style. Whether you are into slow and sensual cerebral lovemaking, fast and hard heart-pumping knocking boots, or even the kinkier side of sexual play, there is music out there that the can set the tone for an amazing night.
Since I am such a music junkie and addicted to my iPod, I thought I would come up with some quick suggestions for you to enhance your extra-curricular experiences. I am leaving off the more obvious sex playlist, but you can find it here on my Grooveshark playlists. Here are some amazing songs that can go on anyone’s sensual playlist and what they may say about you.
