John Mayer: Your Body is a Wonderland
Ok, so we debated over this for a while because we know John Mayer is kind of a love rat. But we figured if Katy Perry can forgive him then we can, right? And don’t we all need some positive, smoochy lovey-dovey lyrics to get down to now and again? With John crooning he’ll “never let your head hit the bed, without my hand behind it” this is one seriously uplifting feel-good sex song. Swoon!
There’s no denying Queen Ri is the champ of sexy chart-toppers and this is her hottest tune to date. With lyrics like “I may be bad, but I’m perfectly good at it...sex in the air, I don’t care I love the smell of it...sticks and stones may break my bones but chains and whips excite me” when this song comes on in the bedroom? Well let’s just say ‘vanilla sex’ is probably out of the question...
Another Level: Freak Me
“Let me lick you up & down, til you say stop. Let me play with your body baby, make you real hot”. Erm, ok then.
Britney Spears: I’m a Slave 4 U
An oldie but a goodie. How could Britney in her prime (remember those abs? That tan? The slithery snake draped dangerously round her shoulders?) panting suggestively through quite possibly the sexiest track of 2001 not be a turn-on?
Kings of Leon: Your Sex Is On Fire
Depending on the scenario, popping this onto your iPod dock mid-sesh could probably go one of two ways. Either he laughs at the reference and the pair of you get it on or it’s one massive cringe-fest based on the explicit expectation that the two of you are hoping to have some seriously hot sex. Awkward.
Nelly: Hot In Here
Ok, so it’s not exactly poetic genius, but we defy anybody to not feel the teeniest bit sexy listening to Nelly exclaim “It's getting hot in here, so hot, so take off all your clothes”. A true party classic that could easily transfer to a bedroom burner too. Just don’t try and do the rap during sex, ok?
Colour Me Bad: I Wanna Sex You Up
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Tried it yet?
R Kelly: Bump ‘N’ Grind
When R Kelly first sung, “My mind is telling me no but my body my body's telling me yes....I don't see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind” we found ourselves nodding in agreement too. Well, unless it’s with your BFF’s boyfriend or something, OBVS. If you’re in the mood for a cheesy soundtrack to a love-in, this is your track.
LL Cool J: Doin’ It
With lyrics like “I wanna knock your block off, get my rocks off,” it’s pretty darn obvious what LL has in mind. Which is exactly why we love this song. The only bit we don’t love? Singing it over and over again on the bus the next day, forgetting quite how explicit the lyrics really are. Cringe.
Daft Punk: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
Let’s get one thing straight: this is no lazy Sunday afternoon sex-track. Instead, Daft Punk’s instructional song is the aerobics work-out of sex songs. Perfect if you’re dating an athlete, non?
