If you’re wanting to spice things up in the bedroom with a sensual playlist but are unsure of what to put on, new data analysis by pelvic healthcare company Kegel8 reveals the world’s most listened-to tracks during sex.
By analysing different sex-themed playlists on the music streaming service Spotify – using the search terms “Sex”, “Netflix and Chill”, “Date Night”, “Make Love”, “Baby Making” – Kegel8 has uncovered the most popular tracks and artists for getting hot and steamy among world-wide listeners:
“Neighbors Know My Name” by American singer, songwriter and rapper Trey Songz features in the most sex-themed playlists, despite being released a decade ago, closely followed by a second song by the artist “Slow Motion” released in 2015. The Grammy Award-winning “Earned It” by Canadian singer and songwriter The Weeknd comes in fourth, made famous as the lead single from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack – a film known for its erotic scenes.
Kegel8 also identified the most listened-to artists in sex-themed playlists. The Weeknd, Trey Songz, Jeremih, Ed Sheeran and Ginuwine are the top 5 most listened-to artists during sex, with each featuring in over 1000 playlists. When it comes to getting couples in the mood, these artists have it covered:
It also seems there’s a perfect length, tempo, key and era too. Who knew!?
The average song listened to during sex is just under 4 minutes (make of that what you will!), it’s released in the 2010s, is sung in the key “G” and has a moderate tempo of 115 beats per minute.
Stephanie Taylor, Managing Director ofKegel8, commented:
“It’s really interesting to explore the world’s go-to songs for the bedroom.
However, while these songs are perfect for getting couples in the mood, sex can sometimes end up being a less-than-pleasurable experience. If you find yourself at the end of the playlist without that moment of glory you could be suffering from a weak pelvic floor. The pelvic floor muscles hold all your important pelvic organs in place; if these muscles are weak, you’re likely to see your sex life deflate.”
“It doesn’t have to be this way. By taking control of your pelvic health and practising Kegel exercises you can strengthen those all-important muscles and increase blood flow to your intimate parts, making sex more pleasure-filled for both you and your partner”.
