Mostly 1s: Pop music
Pop music makes sex fun and exciting since that’s the kind of vibe you seem to share with your partner.
But don’t think of Michael Jackson — instead pick Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, or Destiny’s Child which temper pop music beats to make them conducive to have sex.
Closer home, turn to the slower and more romantic IndiePop beats of the ’90s.
Mostly 2s: Country music
Faith Hill’s Breathe and You’re still the one by Shania Twain are a few romantic songs you can pick to listen to while you’re with your partner.
If you’re into Bollywood music, choose romantic slow-paced numbers by Arijit Singh or Shreya Ghoshal.
Mostly 3s: Instrumental, blues or jazz
If you’re into steamy sex, music may be a hindrance, and you’d like to make all the interesting noises yourself.
In this case, it is the best to stick to soft jazz or blues played at a very low volume or vintage Bollywood instrumental music.
