Music may very well be the food of love, but it's also—more deliciously—the food of loving. Because we know our readers have an appetite like no other, as reported in our annual Sex issue, we present to you the connoisseur's playlist. From the hottest turn-ons to the sweetest soundtracks, these are the 50 sexiest songs on the planet, according to us.
RECOMMENDED: Music & nightlife sex issue
To be clear: These aren’t necessarily songs about the act of love (though many of them are pretty detailed); rather, they’re songs to do it to. Hence, W.A.S.P.’s “Animal (Fuck Like a Beast)" does not qualify, but the White Stripes' metaphor-happy “Ball and Biscuit” does. For those sorts of songs, head to our grubby Best oral sex songs list.
A note on our list’s running order: While the top ten songs are, in our opinion, the ten most outrageously sizzing songs ever recorded, the runners-up are ordered—sensitively—for your listening pleasure. We want you to be able to enjoy your Spotify playlist with as few awkward, fumbling moments as possible. Now let us begin!
