Is Music More Sexually Arousing Than Touch?
Good Music Is Similar To Food, Drugs And Sex
Sometimes the best foreplay is just pressing play. A new "study" from streaming music provider Spotify found that 40 percent of people say sexy music is more likely to turn them on than physical touch.
Everyone knows the sexual healing powers of Marvin Gaye, or the hip-moving magic generated by Barry White. And when Boyz II Men say they're going to make love to me, I believe it.
Well, according to a study from Spotify, I'm not alone: music can promote a stronger sexual feeling than touch from your partner.
In "Science Behind the Song," the online music provider interviewed 2,000 people between the ages of 18 and 91 to find their thoughts on sex, music and what turns us on. The results show it only takes a little funk to get freaky.
Gaye's "Let's Get It On" placed near the top of the list of songs that rev people's sexual engines, followed by Ravel's epic "Bolero." But the tune voted number one was "Time of My Life," that sweaty Swayze classic from 1987's Dirty Dancing.
"It's no surprise that so many respondents claimed to find music arousing in the bedroom," Mullensiefen said, adding that sexy time music releases chemicals from the brain's pleasure center.
Personally, I'm partial to a little old timey Rock N Roll when things are getting hot and heavy. What are your picks for the sexiest songs of all time?
