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!

This list SUCKS! I mean, how is it damn possible to make up a 50 Best Sex Songs list and not include Herb Alpert's "Making Love In The Rain"? And where's Art Of Noise "Moments In Love"? And how do you dare leave out Janet Jackson's "70's Love Groove" and Ready For The World's "Love You Down"? Quite questionable, indeed :/

Take You Down by Chris Brown should have been in top 5 for sure

Seriously? No Barry White in this list? Not one single mention of the love walrus himself?! Give yourselves a slap round the chops!

You can never go wrong with Jeremih. "Birthday Sex" and "All the Time" by Jeremih should've been on here.

TLC's song "This is how it works" should've been on here, it's practically a sex lesson! smh it is such an underrated song

what a load of tripe!!! i cam here looking to make a playlist for some moody sensual music but instead saw peter gabriels sledgehammer and the faint - worked up so sexual which is more like an aerobics on speed tune. thinking about you frank ocean is wet like soggy cardboard and my bloody valentine sounds like when you took the centre out of a record on a turntable and it played all wonky. my missus would say whats this rubbish turn it off its putting me off!! failed dismally.

Terrible list. Have you ever really made love to a woman. The Weeknd's "the Zone" should be here.

Mariah Carey touch my body (Cyril Hahn remix) is by FAR the sexiest song you could play. I dare anyone to listen to that and disagree.

i touch myself s a good song but not one to have sex to, i like lets get it on

I really think that Paradise Circus by Massive Attack should be somewhere in there, since it is by far the sexiest song I've heard. You can tell by the hidden messages in the lyrics as well as the hypnotizing voice but also from the unbearably hot rhythm. (By the way the Zeds Remix adds a little bit spark to the piece that if i might say does the song justice ;P )

Interesting list. Not sure "I Touch Myself" is a song to 'do it to' though. I hear you on Frank Ocean, but Touch Myself just reminds me of silly school dances and immature girls.
