12 Sexiest Songs To Listen To While In Bed With Your Partner

Why have sex in the stone cold silence of your chilly bedroom when you could warm things up with a sensual, sexy playlist? While love songs will help you create emotional intimacy, sexy songs are all about making your sex life scorching hot. The right songs will set not only the mood for the evening but the momentum as well. This sexy songs playlist features songs new and old that are slow and sensual as well as fast and feisty. Play these songs in this order to build up the tension for a night neither of you will forget. While you may not get through all of these songs in one go, you’ll certainly have fun trying.

  1. “Sound and Color” by Alabama Shakes The opening notes of this indie stunner will feel like a call to action. They’re slow and resonant, hitting you right in the chest. Alabama Shakes are about to start the night off strong.
  2. “Freak” by Doja Cat You’ve likely heard this song all over TikTok, and for good reason. While it sounds sweet at first, the lyrics are extra spicy. “Freak like me, you want a good girl that does bad things to you, you never been with no one as nasty as me.” Playing this near the beginning matches the sensual mood but hints at how freaky things will get later.
  3. “Surprise Yourself” by Jack Garratt Another slow and sensual song. Similar to “Sound and Color,” it has a resonance that will fill the whole room with a sexy bass. Take the lyrics, “Keep exploring, seek and find, you know you might surprise yourself” literally. Explore each other’s bodies.
  4. “Love on the Brain” by Rihanna If this sensual evening is spent with your intimate partner, playing a song that does both the sexiness and the love at the same time is a great choice. Rihanna’s “Love on the Brain” is perfect for when you’re down for “making love” and not just the frantic focus on completion that sometimes comes with meaningless sex.
  5. “Pillowtalk” by Zayn Things are about to build, so this is the final song in the sweet and sensual portion of the night. Let Zayn seduce you both into focusing on each other’s pleasure. “I love to hold you close, tonight and always,” might just be what you need before, during, and after this mind-blowing night.
  6. “All the Time” by Jerimih, Lil Wayne, and Natasha Mosley Things are getting spicy. You might remember this song from the finale of Magic Mike XXL when Channing Tatum teams up with Twitch. If it’s good enough for them, then it’s good enough for us!
  7. “Dangerous Woman” by Ariana Grande If you’re ever having trouble feeling like a sexy badass in the bedroom, play “Dangerous Woman.” This is a perfect song for those who sometimes feel like they are “too good” or “too inexperienced” to get a little nasty. At this point in the playlist, you should be feeling extra sexy.
  8. “Gorilla” by Bruno Mars The idea that Bruno Mars is just for middle-aged moms doesn’t quite hold up when you consider this sexy song. Who knew Bruno could get so dirty? Groove along to these lyrics: “I bet you never ever felt so good, so good, I got your body trembling like it should, it should, you’ll never be the same baby once I’m done with you.”
  9. “Gimme More” by Britney Spears Let Britney Spears (#FreeBritney) serenade the two of you into some spicy sex moves. She sings about crazy positions and being up against a wall, which is a great reminder that just one position is a quick way to a boring sex life. Thanks, Britney!
  10. “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)” by Lil Nas X There’s no way you can avoid adding “Montero” to your sexy playlist, especially after seeing Lil Nas X giving Satan a lap dance in the music video. Channel some of what he’s got going for your own lap dance.
  11. “Sucker for Pain” by Lil Wayne, Imagine Dragons, and more This song might be the only good thing that came out of the first Suicide Squad movie. It was specifically for the soundtrack and is filled with lyrics perfect for couples who like a bit of BDSM in the bedroom. Even if you’re down for just a little bit of pain, the song still hits.
  12. “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails You can’t get much more literal than this song. “I wanna fuck you like an animal. I wanna feel you from the inside.” Trent Reznor wasn’t exactly mincing words. “Closer” strips away the euphemisms and gets down and dirty, making it the perfect song for the end of the night.
