Songs That’ll Set the Mood During Sex

You don’t have to stick to listening to Barry White when you enter the bedroom. You can create a mixed tape (or a Spotify playlist) of other songs that are sure to set the mood. Of course, there are different types of tunes that fit different types of occasions. Here are some of the best songs that’ll set the mood during sex, depending on what type of relationship you’re in:

For Monogamous Couples

When you’ve been together for a while, it’s easy to let the television work as background noise instead of searching for a CD to fit the mood. However, hearing Donald Trump’s voice on the news isn’t anywhere near as romantic as some love songs are. Whether you’ve been with your partner for decades or only a few months, these tunes will make any sex session sweeter:

  • Your Call by Secondhand Serenade
  • Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers
  • So Contagious by Acceptance
  • All My Heart by Sleeping With Sirens
  • I Do by Colbie Calliat
  • I Hope This Gets to You by The Daylights

For One Night Stands

You don’t want to put on anything too romantic when you have a one-night stand. If you do, then your date could get the wrong idea and assume that you want something serious. However, you don’t want to listen to anything too raunchy, either, because it could make you feel like you’re selling your body. That’s why you should stick to these songs that fall somewhere in the middle:

  • Whatever You Like by Anya Marina
  • With Me by Sum 41
  • Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leppard
  • If I Never See Your Face Again by Maroon 5 and Rihanna
  • Lollipop by Lil’ Wayne
  • Dance For You by Beyonce

For Friends With Benefits

Sometimes, you need lighthearted music to listen to with your FWB in order to keep things casual. However, there are some messy FWB relationships where one person wants the arrangement to turn serious. Whatever the case may be, here’s a song that should fit your situation:

  • One Week of Danger by The Virgins
  • Situations by Escape the Fate
  • I Wanna by The All American Rejects
  • Wicked Game by Chris Isaak
  • Situations by Escape the Fate
  • With or Without You by U2

For LGBTQAA Couples

Members of the LGBTQAA community aren’t any different than straight men and women are. That’s why lesbians, pansexuals, and any other sexuality should feel free to listen to the rest of the songs on the list. However, there are a few songs with lyrics that are meant specifically for them, and here they are:

  • When I Get Up by Tegan and Sara
  • She Keeps Me Warm by Mary Lambert
  • Same Love by Macklemore
  • Origin of Love by John Cameron Mitchell
  • Gay Bar by Electric Six
  • Follow Your Arrow by Kacey Musgraves

For Ruining The Mood

Dates don’t always go well. If you’re not having a good time and just wish your date would go home, you can turn on some silly songs in order to drive them away. Even if you’re in a serious relationship and live with your partner, you can make it clear that you’re not in the mood for sex by turning up these tunes that would be impossible to have sex to:

  • Shut Up and Sleep With Me by Win With Sebastian
  • I’m Too Sexy by Right Said Fred
  • I Just Had Sex by The Lonely Island
  • I Don’t Love You by My Chemical Romance
  • It’s Not Me, It’s You by Skillet
  • Leave (Get Out) by Jojo
