I posted a sexmix last year, in August, but I’m constantly revising my playlists. This is the current sexmix tracklist.
This is not, however, the music I put on for a day of sex – I’d rather have a few albums on shuffle. The current favorites are Me’Shell N’degeOcello’s Bitter, as much Morphine as I have on my hard drive (especially the albums Like Swimming, Yes, and Good), and Chris Isaak’s album Heart Shaped World.
Here’s the sexmix:
- Come – Kinnie Starr
- All Your Way – Morphine
- Sexual Animals – Sarah Fimm
- Right Now & Right Here – Keren Ann
- Sweet The Sting – Tori Amos
- Wrong To Love You – Chris Isaak
- Slow Like Honey – Fiona Apple
- Beautiful – Meshell Ndegeocello
- Volcano – Damien Rice
- You Look Like Rain – Morphine
- Alright – Kinnie Starr
- Grace – Jeff Buckley
- Tear You Apart – She Wants Revenge
- Counting Bodies Like Sheep To The Rhythm Of The War Drums – A Perfect Circle
- Forty Six & 2 – Tool
- Sexyback – JT
- In Tha Mood – Esthero
- Satisfy – Meshell Ndegeocello
- Swing It Low – Morphine
So, lay it on me: what would you add? What’s your favorite music to fuck to? What’s the best seduction music? What tracks just need to be on this list?

p.s. the one that needs to be on your list is: Seven Nation Army, because it sounds like a fucken badass topping song to me.
My sex list is a mix of Massive Attack, Zero 7, Loveage, and a couple tracks off U2's Pop, which in my opinion is thoroughly under-appreciated.
We should probably fuck.
That is all.
Melissa Ferrick's "Drive"
Wow such great songs I could not copy them fast enough..
Here are some of my "I know I'm gettin' a lil somethin' somethin' " songs:
We Rock The Party… Soul Rebels
Corkscrew… Morning 40 Federation
Blue Orchid… White Stripes
I Feel You.. Depeche Mode
How Soon is Now…The Smiths
Big Dumb Sex…Soundgarden
Ring Finger.. NIN.. A MUST FOR ALL SEX MIXES
Heart Shaped Glasses…Marilyn Manson
Beautiful People… Marilyn Manson
Remedy… Black Crows, Really anything by the Crows will do.
Dyer Maker… Led Zep
Misery .. The Cliks
Soul Back Driver… The Cliks
Eyes in the Back of My Head… The Cliks
Hell the entire Cliks CD
I can not believe I forgot:
Blue Monday – New Order
E-Pro – Beck
@ aimee – I guess I'm not the only one who likes to fuck to a good indie rock baseline, eh? no doubt it's a very good measure of compatibility. (^_^)
What about Joan Jett.. Do Ya Wanna Touch Me ? Such a cockteaser song.. I love it..
totally agree with the suggestions of dyer maker, lovage, esthero (particularly "in tha mood," sinclair! good pick!), and absolutely any massive attack. also:
* and you belong – scream club
* come on closer – jem (this song is the hotness – seriously)
* come around – m.i.a (not really about sex, but a hot beat)
* swimming pool – freezepop
* i've been thinking – cat power & handsome boy modeling school (any song that starts off with the lyrics 'be my boy…be my boy…' is a winner in my book)
* i want you – common
* don't look back – telepopmusik
* breathing light – nitin sawhney
* mono – life in mono (old and from the great expectations soundtrack …errr… still good sexin' music)
yay for all the good suggestions! my appropriately named "from makin' out to makin' it" playlist is growing by the second :)
oh! and 'what would happen if we kissed' by meredith brooks
@ Muse and Aimee; threesome?
Honestly, I am less about specific songs…I've just found some groups that work for me. Smashing Pumpkins, the Killers, the Back Row, the Cure, etc.
Mmm. Sex. I need to get me some of that.
@ Essin': mmm, smashing pumpkins. My gf has been known to call this type of music 'straight boy crap' but some of it's good…
i also love depeche mode's 'playing the angel' …
ps: i <3 <3 <3 delilah by the dresden dolls — live they are amazing!
@ muse –
baselines and hooks. Hotdamn. : )
@ Essin’Em –
I just whacked The Cure on about 20 seconds ago and decided they’d make my list for sure, should I ever get around to writing one. Which I probably won’t. Distractions. Anyway, good call.
Oh hell, how did I forget Depeche Mode – I Feel You?
i would have to add:
northern state – iluvitwhenya
outkast – speakerboxx/the love below (the whole double album)
the beatles – tomorrow never knows
kelly clarkson – behind these hazel eyes (really!)
i have fucked to some ridiculous shit though, like "red light special" by TLC, and the spice girls…
Rolling Stones – Almost hear you sigh
Massive Attack – Unfinished sympathy
Massive Attack – Teardrop
ebtg – Only living boy in NY
Prince – Anotherloverholeinyohead
Loneliness – Annie Lennox
And no points for the 'answer's in the title…'
D'Angelo – Feel like makin' love
with a title like "music to fuck to" you need some hot, forgot-where-you-are-and-don't-even-care, can't see straight fucking session music.
so enjoy as follows.
Deftones – Change (in the house of flies)
Massive Attack – Angel
Godsmack – Voodoo
Ginuwine – My Pony
Akon – I wanna Fuck You (instrumental)
Peaches – Fuck the pain away
Goldfrapp – Strict Machine
Massive Attack & Portishead – Teardrop
Timbaland – Bounce
Orbital – Halcyon (Prodigy remix)
DJ Kurvy – Running on Empty
Kanye West – Love Lock Down (LMFAO remix)
Godhead – Penetrate
Now stop kissing, and start sweating
"the artist": Thank you! That is exactly the type of music I was looking for. :)
There’s only one sexy song and beat she will dance to when I’m deep into her…
RIGHT ROUND – flo rida
Has an awesome beat, it’s riding time, pounding time… on my back, she’s COWGIRL bouncing up & down, arms in the air side to side. Mmmm… Luv ya Babe!!!
Follow it up with…
BEAUTIFUL, DIRTY, RICH – Lady GaGa
