I don’t know about you but I’ve always thought that the right type of music can create just the right atmosphere to increase your desire to have sex.
Just think for a moment about some the best sexual experiences you’ve ever had? Can you remember if there was music playing at the time?
You say there was.
I thought you might say that. Well, since I was first affected with a low libido and erectile dysfunction I have researched many things that claim to increase your libido.
And music is one of those things.
Now you’ll probably agree with me that music has a unique ability to influence how you feel. It can boost your energy when you want work out.
It can give you comfort after a heartbreaking experience. Some gentle classical music can help you relax when you just want to chill.
And of course, if you listen to the right type of music, it can fire up your sexual desire and put you in the mood for some fun between the sheets (or elsewhere).
Does Music Increase Your Sexual Desire?
Well, you might think that it sounds a bit farfetched but the fact is research shows that music can indeed increase your libido.
Studies done at McGill University in Montreal found that dopamine, the feel-good neurotransmitter, was released in test subjects while listening to music.
Clinical psychologist from Minneapolis and co author of “Become a Better Lover in Thirty Days”, Curtis Levang says that “Music can increase one’s libido.”
And Frank Diaz, PhD who is an assistant professor of music at the University of Oregon, says that music can stimulate the release of serotonin which is a neurotransmitter that helps in regulating your mood.
So it makes sense that music can also have a powerful effect on your sexual drive.
What’s The Best Music to Increase Your Libido?
Well that’s a very good question. But the answer is not so straightforward. Here’s what I mean.
You see, it really is different for everyone because everyone’s taste in music is different.
Just take a look at all the different styles of music played for sex scenes in the movies.
- Indecent Proposal – “No Ordinary Love” by Sade
- Knocked up – “Rock Lobster” by The B52’s
- 10 – “Bolero” by Ravel
- Eyes Wide Shut – “Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing” by Chris Isaak
- Ghost – “Unchained Melody” by The Righteous Brothers
- Fast Times at Ridgemont High – “Moving in Stereo” by The Cars
- Top Gun – “Take My Breath Away” by Berlin
- Say Anything – “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel
- Road House -“These Arms of Mine” by Otis Redding
- True Romance -“Chantilly Lace” by The Big Bopper
- Risky Business – “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins
- Dirty Dancing -“Hungry Eyes” by Eric Carmen
- The Graduate – “The Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel
There’s a lot of different styles on that list don’t you agree?
What Music Gets Your Sexual Desire Turned On?
Well, if you are stressed out and you just can’t seem to relax during sex, then maybe something chilled or relaxing like soft classical music may help you increase your libido.
But if you think that sex should be a wild, exiting and active activity then maybe you need something a little more upbeat.
The best thing you can do is experiment with different music. And don’t forget to talk with your partner about what they like.
Just remember that there are different types of music out there for everyone.
My wife and I like to put on some slow sexy jazz on when we want to get intimate and to help things along we also take an amazing libido boosting herb called Cistanche.
In fact, we take Cistanche every day.
And the combination of slow jazz and Cistanche always results in some very steamy sessions. So why don’t you start experimenting to find the best music that works to boost your libido?
