There always comes a moment when you urgently need to find intimate music for a romantic retreat with your couple. In a hurry, you start scouring the internet and usually find something too poppy that doesn’t fit the intimate moment. Here I have selected for you a playlist of the Top 10 Sensual Music for Romantic Sex – Playlist (the link to the Youtube playlist is attached)
Bringing the emotional to the electronic, SG Lewis sets the scene with a gentle patter of rain pierced by a soulful voice pitched seductively low. “Yours” is the physical embodiment of a dark, smoke-filled room barely lit around the edges with jagged red stabs of neon. The warm and woody piano frames the hollow percussive snap of the mallet snare like lightning striking a feather pillow. When the wobbling alligator synth explodes out of the song’s murky depths, you might find it feels good to be trapped in its jaws.
All about possession, both the ownership kind and the demonic kind, “I Put a Spell on You” offers unrequited lovers an alternative way to hang on to their other halves. With voodoo overtones and carefree scat breaks, this bluesy piano ballad soaks us in witchcraft and wishes. Under three minutes in length, however, we’d put a spell on this song to make it last longer.
his song gets brownie points in all the most sensual categories, from The Weeknd’s vocals, sparkling and gushing with sensuality, to the stop-and-go orchestral beat that makes us feel like the richest man in the world who’s missing only you. The sensual lighting and mood of the video earns it extra credit, featuring an undulating backdrop of bodies and bondage as the jaded rock star uses a scantily clad woman as a microphone.
Chet Faker mixes Chet Baker’s dreary 50s jazz with Blackstreet’s leather-coated 90s R&B to create a seductive masterpiece. Layered over ambient street noise, Faker’s cracked vocals and gritty, decapitated instrumentation always lands milliseconds behind the kick to let us know that there’s neither diggity nor hurry. His organ notes ripple in time with the penetrating clicks of his wood scraper, and the lead vocal is so tangled in its beard of whispery reverb you could lose yourself in it.
Perfect for two people in a dark room relying only on their sense of touch, Two Feet strips down the music at the beginning of the track. The whispery, nearly solo vocals are punctuated with a lone guitar slap that ripples with longing. When the song finally explodes into clinging lead guitar and rumbling bass, it will make you want to rumble as well.
Who said the 90s weren’t sexy? Chris Isaak’s unholy hit leaks with lust from the opening guitar riff. It bends its forlorn notes first hauntingly down then suggestively back up and down again, like the rollercoaster romance of the titular co-dependent relationship. This song is equal parts raunchy and romantic, getting us dreaming of those significant souls that make you feel you must either stay far away or never ever leave.
It might seem odd for one of our all-time sexy songs to open with a plea from the guest singer to not get him dirty, but the vocal fry and sultry, half-spoken verses suggest the lyrics might have facetious intentions. The crackling snare will make you want to pound to its rhythm, and the overtly sensual backup chorus may just convince you that actions speak louder than words.
There’s just something we love about the contrast between a lead vocal with the pitch tuned a bit down and backup harmonies that gasp suggestively. The warm, gooey liquid music rides Zhu’s trademark muffled beat like a halfpipe, enveloping your ears and sinking into your skin. If you’re a fan of a good sunrise session, what they call in Spanish “un mañanero,” you won’t be able to resist bouncing along to the unstoppable energy in the kick.
If you like it slow, the soft-spoken voice and mellow bongo-based beat that open this song will drag your eardrums through molasses. The chorus blossoms into twinkling piano notes over a metallic melody of feathery hi hats. It’s a perfect frame to a romantic evening that starts with roses and slow dancing and ends in even slower dancing. When the sax finally kicks in furiously at the end, its stumbling, growling paroxysms swell to a screeching sensual climax that would make Kenny G blush.
Selena Gomez ventures into R&B territory with a tune that starts off restrained and chaste before bursting into our ear canals like a marshmallow explosion with a voluptuous vibe. For a song about dressing up to look good for your partner, we’re not sure whether any of those carefully selected clothes will remain in place by the time it ends.
Thank you for watching and I hope that this playlist will bring you joy.
