Awww yeah. It's time to get it on. And make sure you read the title correctly. These are songs to make love to, not to drunkenly try and get it in with. Keep these in a Spotify playlist called 'Slow Stuff' and break it out when you've got candles and rose petals all around for your significant other.
Thinkin Bout You - Frank Ocean
channel ORANGE in general has tons of songs to freak to, but this is the real standout. Frank's voice will do all the heavy lifting, all you have to focus on is not fucking it up. This is the perfect song to start the lovemaking session; calm but also sexy.
Strawberry Swing - Coldplay
Coldplay might be something of a punch line, but they know how to make really pretty songs that make me weepy and kinda horny. Strawberry Swing is light and fun, and your partner is sure to appreciate Chris Martin's whimsical voice while you smush your genitals against theirs.
Sunday Candy - Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment
There may be no hotter name in music than Chance the Rapper. This song off of Surf is the perfect amount of TPM (thrusts per minute).
The Hills - The Weeknd
When I'm fucked up/That's the real me. Clearly, The Weeknd gets us. His stupid name aside, this song is guaranteed to drop panties and pop boners.
Let's Get It On - Marvin Gaye
No making love playlist would be complete without an oldie, and Mr. Gaye is the gold standard for a reason. Having this song come on will make your partner relax and laugh and have fun.
Heartbeat - Childish Gambino
So Childish Gambino isn't as cool as I thought he was my freshman year, but I still defend this choice. Heartbeat has an awesome bass beat and that's really all that matters when you're going to poundtown.
Your Song - Ellie Goulding
This is the first of three covers that I recommend you freak to. It's almost like having sex with someone after years of fucking other people. There's something familiar but also new and exciting. Plus Prince William and Kate had this as their wedding song. Time to fuck like royalty.
D.A.N.C.E. - Justice
A good sex playlist keeps changing the mood, allowing you to break out all the moves you have in your Swiss Army knife of lovemaking. This poppy number will be the perfect transition from deep-eye gazing to something a little more fun.
Skinny Love - Birdy
I'm all for Bon Iver, but I think hearing him croon about his lost love would make me lose my boner. Birdy is able to keep the same emotion but she isn't quite as sad and tragic and boner-killing.
Home - Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes
Warning: Fucking to this song might actually make you fall in love. With that said, proceed with caution. The whistling introduction and the impromptu conversation between two lovers halfway through this song make it a must for any lovemaking session.
Heroes - David Bowie
Fucking R.I.P., David Bowie. This one's for you.
Whatever You Like - Anya Marina
This is by the far the hottest song on the playlist. Anya literally oozes sexiness as she takes T.I.'s weirdly patriarchal song to another level. It's equal parts hot and sweet and that's the perfect recipe for getting it on.
