Feel like makin' love: the top 6 sex songs

I present my Top 6 songs to swing on the trapeze to. Songs that are in the background when your lover pulls your hair and reminds you that love is indeed a battlefield.

(1)Now no one would ever accuse ole Rabid Nick of not being a romantically charged lover. I like to start nice and easy with something like "Run" by Stephen Fretwell. Never heard of it? Well you should. This little soft and sultry tune is light but engaging, just what you're trying to be while you run your lips across your lover's neck. Things are definitely getting started but we're not gunning the engines quite yet. Remember, you're not just trying to get laid, you want this to be etched in the mind of your lover's sexual biography. (Alternative songs include anything by Jason Mraz, the Once Soundtrack, or Al Green)

(2)You feel like turning this shit up right? Well pay attention.  "Baby It's You" by Smith, on the Death Proof Soundtrack is a sure fire panty-dropper. It's actually scientifically proven to get you laid. There's no way to avoid swinging your hips to the beat of this joint. You've got 3 minutes of sexually charged drum beats, which is all you'll both be able to handle before the main event. (Alternative songs include "A Night with the Jersey Devil" by Bruce Springsteen and "Cold Hard Bitch" by Jet)


(3)Ok, so go ahead and call me biased, but if the Rabid One is going to be partaking in his favorite activity he might as well have his favorite punk bank banging along with him. For the feature presentation, I blast "Jesus of Suburbia" by Green Day. This epic runs a little longer than 9 minutes, which is plenty of time to get your love on. This song is a fucking masterpiece with 5 unique sections and a ton a rhythm changes, including a beat that can go from hard and pounding to just enough to "keep the car running." If you can put on some love making as epic as this song this girl/boy will never leave. By the time the "Dearly Beloved portion" of the song concludes he/she might be tapping for submission. (The alternative is "Scenes" by Billy Joel or "Fool in the Rain" by Led Zeppelin. Same theory, different styles.)


I'm sure you noticed I said a top 6 Greatest Songs to Rock the Kasbah to. I did, because

I want YOU to tell me what your top 3 choices would be.

I just realized that last week when I wrote about Katy Perry curing Tampa of the Swine Flu, I failed to properly introduce myself. I'm your party host, "Rabid" Nick Refer (the more you read, the more you'll understand the reason for the name). I'm one of the new Sex & Love Contributors and I look forward to sharing a laugh and maybe more with you. If you like my stuff, remember TnT because that's when you'll find my new posts, every Tuesday and Thursdays.  So mark your calendar, get it tattooed on your girl's ass, or write a song about it and put it on repeat: TnT.

Since you're reading this post, I know you like sex. And assuming you're human, you like music. But do you like music with your sex? Those might be my two favorite subjects so the idea of merging them in an amalgam of hot, rockin' sexiness is right up my alley.
