NSFW Lesbosexy Sunday Has 5 Playlists for 5 Ways to Get It On

As someone perpetually preoccupied with finding the exact right song for every moment of my life, I consider background music extremely important for setting erotic moods. However, not all encounters demand the same music; in fact, different circumstances require vastly different playlists. Two a.m. booty calls have very different atmospheres and needs (including muffling activity so your roommates can’t hear) than heart wrenching breakup/make up sex. Romantic candlelight evenings shouldn’t have the same soundtrack as when you’re filthy talking about the new strap on.

In light of these differences, I’ve assembled 5 playlists for your five basic banging needs. Behold.

3. Gee Baby Ain’t I Good To You – Billie Holiday
4. No One Does It Like You – Department of Eagles

6. Who Knows – Marion Black
7. Boom Boom Ba – Metisse
8. Don’t Try To Fool Me – Miss Li
9. Rewind – Paolo Nutini
10. So Sweet – Johnathan Rice

II. Booty Call

1. Molly’s Chambers – Kings Of Leon
2. Crown of Age – The Ettes

  1. Honestly, I don’t think I would listen to any of these playlists for their aforementioned “moods”. They’re just a bit too cheesy. If you want something really dirty and kinky, try fucking to Drowning Pool’s Let the Bodies Hit the Floor, or a selection of Nine Inch Nails.

  2. Pretty sure the girl with the Skeletor tattoo is getting down to the He-Man opening theme. “I HAVE THE POWERRRRR!”

    Anyway – I find that a really good bass line is super sexy & perfect for the “Slow & Sensual” category. Like the cover of Sade’s “Ordinary Love” by The Deftones. So so sexy. OR Subsonica’s “Alibi”( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3ggKihQtt4 ). It’s in Italian; sometimes the words just do not matter.

    There’s also Lovage’s album “Music To Make Love to Your Old Lady To” (feat. Mike Patton, Jennifer Charles, etc.)

    Music during sex can be tricky though. One time this girl knew the some of the songs & lip synched the words every chance she got…so…yeah.

  3. Portishead – the whole Dummy album. File that under Slow and Sensual.

    And probably some Garbage. Hey, “#1 Crush”.

    Dirty/Kinky: “Master and Servant”, “Stripped” and “Strangelove” by Depeche Mode.

    Romantic: “May This Be Love” by Jimi Hendrix, “Thank You” by Led Zeppelin.

  4. For the Romantic Playlist I would also suggest:

    Astor Piazzolla – Milonga del Angel
    Baden Powell – Por Causa de Você
    Chet Baker – These Foolish Things
    Duke Ellington & John Coltrane – In a Sentimental Mood
    John Coltrane – Invitation
    Paolo Fresu, Richard Galliano, Jan Landgren – Que reste-t-il de nos amours

    Chet Baker – The Touch of your lips
    Chet Baker – You’re mine, you
    John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman – My One and Only Love

  5. Songs to have hot hot sex to:

    Chase and Status – Eastern Jam
    Bonobo ft Fink – If You Stayed Over
    The xx – Crystalised
    Jakwob – Starry Eyes (Ellie Goulding)
    We Are Scientists – Nobody Moves, Nobody Gets Hurt

    Songs to have lovely sex to:

    Explosions in the Sky – Magic Hours
    Feist – Honey, Honey
    This Will Destroy You – Quiet
    Radiohead – Nude
    Counting Crows – Colorblind

  6. Sensual
    “Roads” by Portishead
    “Teardrop” by Massive Attack
    “Come on Closer” by Jem
    “Silky” by Honeycut (the sexiest song ever)
    “Worrisome Heart” by Melody Gardot

    Romantic
    “She Don’t Like Roses” by Christine Kane
    “Paradise” – Ana Laan (more playful but still lovely)

  7. Playing super explicit hip-hop during sexytimes can be extra funny. I’d recommend:

    1.) Juvenile, “Back That Azz Up”
    2.) R. Kelly, “Echo”
    3.) Gucci Mane, “Making Love to the Money”
    4.) Pleasure P, “Boyfriend Number 2”
    5.) Big Punisher, “Still Not A Player”

  8. I think the entirety of Garbage’s Version 2.0 is a sexy sex album. These are fab suggestions tho.

    Also I once made a girl the most pathetically romantic mix CD (only topped by the second, even more pathetically romantic mix CD) but I feel like it would’ve been good sexy music. Maybe.

  9. If you want kinky/sexy then give a listen to “she wants revenge”. It makes for a great pandora station. Sensual I’d go with minus the bear along with the song ” everybody here wants you” by Jeff Buckley. Break up make up definitely City and colour.

  10. well the only time ive had sex while listening to music the girl insisted it be Chevelle ( on a IPod with earphones not speakers) and now any time i hear anything by chevelle i get totaly turned on and start giggling so that and “down on me” by 50 and jeremiah are songs that pop up when turned on

  11. When I was in my teens, I used to like to listen to music during sex to distract myself from how much I really, really didn’t want my boyfriend to be touching me, and ever since I’ve found it too distracting to have music on during.

    But before? Excellent mood setter!

    Some songs I like:

    “Hey Pretty” – Poe
    “Shy” – Ani DiFranco
    “Like It” – The Bandits
    “The Card Game” – Battlestar Galactica Season One soundtrack
    “Enjoy” – Bjork
    “I Will Find You” – Clannad
    “The First Taste” – Fiona Apple
    “#1 Crush” – Garbage (it’s been said, but it bears repeating!)
    “The Trick is to Keep Breathing” – Garbage
    “Constant Craving” – kd lang
    “Chocolate” – Kylie Minogue (yeah, I don’t even….)
    “Say It Right” – Nelly Furtado
    “Oh My God” – Pink
    “I Feel You” – Placebo
    “I’ll Be Yours” – Placebo
    “Wild” – Poe
    “Glory Box” – Portishead
    “New Zero” – Rasputina
    “Blood Sugar Sex Magic” – Red Hot Chili Peppers
    “La Tortura” – Shakira
    “Hot One” – Shudder to Think
    “Hymn to Herne” – SJ Tucker
    “We Are Shangri-la” – SJ Tucker
    “Come On” – Tegan & Sara
    “Explode” – Uh Huh Her

    Also, “Slow Angel”, a mashup of Massive Attack’s “Angel” and Kylie Minogue’s “Slow,” is one of the sexiest things I’ve ever heard.

  12. Music choice: very important. It’s too dangerous to just hit random. “I Kissed a Girl” came on once and I couldn’t stop laughing.

    I’d add “Strange & Beautiful” to the list and “In My Veins,” “Open Your Eyes” and “All Those Pretty Lights” by Andrew Belle.

  13. A very girly pop mix that feeds that side of me and partners whose music trends towards very light pop:

  14. the first time i was ever seduced by a girl, it was to james blunt.

    … she put ‘beautiful’ on repeat.

    I KNOW. i remember feeling, even in that moment, kind of embarrassed that that’s what was playing, but she was older and cooler and had these really soft lips so i wasn’t going to say anything.
    i’ve resigned myself to the cheesiest, made-for-tv soundtrack-y first-time experience.

    sigh… she was really pretty, though…

    • Yes, I am not really a music-listener during sex — feels a little awkward/silly to me usually, and I tend to give music my full attention when it’s playing, so, not a great idea — but I think that most of “Skeletal Lamping” is terrifically sexy stuff.

  15. i love that metisse made this list – boom boom ba is ridiculously sexy, and not too weird as to be distracting.

    im going to have to go with anything by bon iver, the xx or freelance whales when you want it slow.

  22. Pan—-totally agree with massive attack. They’re all sorts of trippy sexy. Along those same lines I’d say porcupine tree is fun to do it to as well.

    Innerpartysystem would probably be the best band No ones ever heard of..such an underrated band. Give them a listen. You won’t regret it. They’re that band to listen to during fun kinky, somewhat intoxicated sex.

  23. I’m going to lose my feminist lesbian card to this but whatever

    Kinky
    “Crazy Bitch” – Buckcherry
    “I wanna be your dog” – Joan Jett version

    Seductive
    “Kidda” by Natacha Atlas
    “Desert Rose” by Sting
    “Lady in the Lake” – Elysian Fields

    Breakup and makeup
    “Blue Lights” – Fictional
    “I need a woman” – Stach and Sarah Bettens

    Does anyone know who DJ Sextoy of Paris was? She died about 10 years ago but she had this song called “Ira” (after her then-gf) which was SO fucking hot. I would love love love to find it again.

    More to come…

  24. my slow, dirty, kinky, sensual, fuck playlist…. in no particular order

    Lebanese Blonde-Thievery Corporation
    In The Waiting Line- Zero
    Don’t Panic- Coldplay
    Let Go- Frou Frou
    Mysterons- Portishead
    Glory Box- Portishead
    Strangers- Portishead
    Wandering Star- Portishead
    Sour Times- Portishead
    Numb- Portishead
    Roads- Portishead
    Pedestal- Portishead
    Biscuit- Portishead
    #1 Crush- Garbage
    No Ordinary Love- Sade
    Silence- Delerium Feat. Sarah McLachlan
    Damaged-Plumb

  25. I always go with the more bass-heavy lo-tech stuff, i.e:

    Tea Leaf Dancers (low limit remix), Gumdrop, Roberta Flack- Flying Lotus
    I Need Air- Magnetic Man
    Moth- Burial & Four Tet
    At the End of the Day, Deo- Amon Tobin
    Post Suite- Floating Points Ensemble (not really electronic, actually)

    and of course some Massive Attack, Skream, and Portishead

  26. Fucking killer post.

    throwing in my 2 cents:
    Slow+Sensual: “Idioteque” by Radiohead
    Booty Call: “On a Friday” by Blaqk Audio
    Dirty/Kinky: “Lolita” by Elefant
    Romantic: “Bizzare Love Triangle” by New Order
    Break Up+Make Up: “Make You Smile” by (+44)

  27. I love all of you. I’ve been trying out making a digital radio show called Creative Sexytimes and I’ve been looking for ideas for songs for a while now. This is great.
    It’d be better if the songs were indie and Australian (it’s for a community radio station so we don’t play mainstream/Top 40) but anything goes really :D

    The first time I had sex with a woman it was to a mix of Moloko tracks. She’s pretty into the sex-soundtrack thing, so am I (hurrah creative types) but I forgot there was one Moloko track that I really didn’t like. Good thing it didn’t pop up till the end! (The sex was uber hot and confirmed to me that lesbian sex was the way to go.)

  28. No R. Kelly bump and grind or body is calling? Either work well for booty call and slow and sensual. I would also put Sleater Kinney let’s call it love, works well for all scenarios cause its about female orgasms.
