A fairly predictable No 1

Struggling to get going?

The good people over at Deezer have teamed up with international sex, body language and relationships expert Tracey Cox in an aptly titled “Aphro-Deezer-ac Report.”

In the report into the sex lives of Americans, they examine the coupling of music and sex and the key role that music plays in people’s sex lives.

According to the study, listening to music during a bout of spirited rumpy-pumpy will make the experience all the more enjoyable with 30% of people feeling more aroused and 25% saying it makes the sex better.

15% of poor souls felt that it made their exploits less awkward.

“Music is a powerful, potent aphrodisiac, so I’m not surprised so many Americans find it improves their sexual experiences,” said Cox.

“Listening to music causes our brain to flood with dopamine, the pleasure hormone. The same thing happens when we’re getting intimate, so it effectively puts our bodies ‘in the mood.’”

Basically, music makes you frisky.


So which songs are most likely to get you in the mood for an afternoon of making bacon?

The study says that the old reliable, ‘Let’s Get It On’ by Marvin Gaye, is still the one to beat with 27% of respondents saying he had the sexiest voice to listen to during sex. See the top ten in full below.
