The XXX Factor: The Ultimate Sex Playlist

The XXX Factor: The Ultimate Sex Playlist

With the X Factor back on your screen, it’s definitely time to start thinking about your personal Sex Factor playlist and the most sensual songs to get it on to. Everyone knows that the power of music is incredible. Whether it's parents singing lullabies to their children or you are at the gym – you know exactly what playlist to make you run harder, faster and longer. Why not pay more attention to what music you play in the bedroom?

 

You get the feeling music is all part of Mother Nature’s plan, it has even been known to help plants flourish. Scientists played a greenhouse full of plants the music of Bach and Handel, which is regular and rhythmical classical music, and the plants flourished. They then played discordant, disorganized, erratic music and the plants failed to grow. We humans are the same. 

 

Music evokes feelings deep in your soul, it springs from your alarm clocks, your car stereos and ipods, and it can make you happy or even make you cry. According to a paper by Nidhya Logeswaran and Joydeep Bhattacharya from the University of London, music even affects how we see visual images. Quite frankly, music is a little bit magic.

What we do know is that there are two different sides to your brain. The left side controls the rational mind allowing you to think logically, strategically and mathematically. The right side controls your intuitive mind – helping you to create art, music, poetry and spirituality. It makes sense that a good piece of music, picked strategically by our left side of the brain can be a complete game changer when it comes to the right side of our brain really getting in the mood for sex.

 

Music can help you relax if it’s your first time with someone, or help you serenade your partner as part of your romantic night in. If you like sex toys, but not the vibrating sound they make, music is a perfect way to drown this noise out. In fact, drown any noise out and allow both of you to be totally present in the moment together. Maybe you have a song that you always played when you first met your special someone? You know that playing it can bring all the same feelings rushing back with a bang, taking you right back to where it all began.

Now, when it comes to advice as to which pieces of music are best to play – this is obviously incredibly personal and wont be exactly the same for everyone. Perhaps none of the above does it for you, everyone is different. When you do come to create your own playlist, just remember that different songs set different moods – sensual, fast paced, relaxing, and so on. You don’t want the songs to be obviously cheesy or you will spend more time laughing than having actual sex. All you need to do is choose pieces that you both enjoy and find the ones that really relax you.
