The Best 20 Songs for Making Out, Having Sex, Whatever's on the Menu

I’m sure we can all agree that sexy time is the best time. Whether you’re into kinky, wild sex involving items you probably can’t find at your local grocery store or you’re satisfied with chill, post-work, stress-relieving sex, intimacy with your significant other is one of God’s greatest gifts to (wo)man.

Yet despite some of your best efforts, it’s not always easy to get in the mood, especially if you find yourself following the same routine every time you hit the sheets. Sometimes what you need — aside from scented candles and sexy lingerie (sorry, mom and dad) — is a soundtrack to your sex. Yes, that’s exactly what I said.

At times it can be difficult to focus on the task at hand when all you can think about is the awkward silence before doing the dirty deed, whether or not your roommate can hear you, or if you remembered to turn off the oven. So with a little bit of music you’ll be able to take your mind off everything but the person you're with and get a little crazy. After all, what’s better than experimenting a little during sex?

Here is a playlist that will definitely help you get laid tonight.

"Drops of Jupiter" – Train

As my boyfriend once said, “I kissed someone during this song.” And we all know that a fun make out session is a good way to get things started.

"Let’s Get It On" – Marvin Gaye

This Marvin Gaye classic is definitely the best song to put you in the mood. The smooth tune also makes for a great way to prank your sibling by playing it really loudly when (s)he is about to get it on with his or her SO. Not that I would know from experience. #smh

"Harder to Breathe" – Maroon 5

Once upon a time there was Adam Levine and the members of Maroon 5 before the bleached hair and the overplayed radio hits. And they were sexy. Sexy enough to romp to.

"Danger! High Voltage" – Electric Six

This group didn’t hide anything in the hilariously, and at times naughty, music video to this song, but there’s nothing wrong with that. Embrace the fact that you’re getting laid tonight while you listen to this quirky song.

"I’m A Slave 4 U" – Britney Spears

If your man isn’t into this, then you can tell him to leave. Really, what’s not to like about this sexy Britney song?

"Je T’aime… Moi Non Plus" – Serge Gainsbourg

Originally written for his former love, Bridgitte Bardot, Gainsbourg created a hit with this, which he eventually recorded with a later girlfriend, Jane Birkin. Initially, the French song faced some backlash because of how erotic it was. So naturally you will want to make love to this.

"Bad Things" – Jace Everett

Sexual tension is inevitable when watching True Blood, and just hearing its theme song will probably lead to some smushing. You can thank me later.

"Crazy Bitch" – BuckCherry

Back scratching might not be for everyone, but you just might try it after listening to this. You won’t be sorry.

"(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life" – Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes

Although I wouldn’t typically recommend attempting to do the Dirty Dancing lift associated with this song, Ryan Gosling’s go-to move in Crazy, Stupid, Love drove women crazy. And I’m not just talking about Emma Stone.

"Rock Your Body" – Justin Timberlake

Speaking of hot men, Timberlake pretty much says it all in this song with, “Better have you naked by the end of this song.” Plus, who doesn’t like a good song by the former *NSYNC singer?

"I’ll Make Love To You" – Boyz II Men

Though Stacie’s performance of this song didn’t win the riff-off in Pitch Perfect, it wins the “this-will-get-me-laid” contest for sure. Anna Kendrick would be proud of you.

"Tainted Love" – Marilyn Manson

Aside from formerly dating the beautiful Evan Rachel Woods, Manson has a way with making people feel freaky through this song. Just don’t watch the music video while you’re at it.

"The Bad Touch" – Bloodhound Gang

There’s nothing wrong with getting a little rowdy during sex, and this song will likely bring out the animal in both you and your SO. Go crazy!

"Pour Some Sugar on Me" – Def Leppard

Nothing like a good rock song to prepare you for exciting sexual endeavors. Amiright?

"Partition" – Beyonce

Not only is this video hot (after all, it is Queen Bey), but the lyrics are also on point. Beyonce knows how to reach out to her listeners. Oui, j’aime le sexe.

"Cherry Pie" – Warrant

I’m not going to say that all sex songs are classy, because this one definitely isn’t, but it’ll make you feel crazy and carefree. Most sex isn’t all 50 Shades of Grey (thankfully), but not all of it is completely innocent either. Let your freak flag fly.

"Birthday Sex" – Jeremih

Birthday sex, everyday sex… who’s really keeping track? Getting laid should be a celebration in and of itself. Listen to this song and have birthday sex year-round!

"Thinking About You" – Frank Ocean

Fast-pace, aggressive songs should definitely not be skipped during playtime with your SO, but sometimes it’s nice to take it down a notch with a slow song like this one. Remember: passionate sex is good sex.

"Lollipop" – Framing Hanley

Everyone knows Lil Wayne’s original take on this song, but Framing Hanley makes it that much sexier. Put out the nice sheets tonight.

"Sensual" – TVA

Just like it sounds, this song is truly sensual and guarantees a good time. Slow but sexy, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t listen to this.
