“Closer” by Nine Inch Nails
“Closer” is more than a vintage relic from a parallel steampunk universe; it’s an industrial sex machine that can retract its claws. The song features X-rated lyrics and a fluttering heartbeat-like sound that invites listeners to let their lizard brains go. This song, despite the fact that Nine Inch Nails was founded on an inferno of social protest, makes us more than eager to obey.
“Redbone” by Childish Gambino
Donald Glover’s alter ego, Gambino, lays on the falsetto in this groovy R&B groove, which has lyrics about peanut butter and bass that sounds like toast. Glover does a lot with just a wah pedal and a few simple instruments. In “Redbone,” you’ll hear the aching lyrics that will make you want to eat the meat.
“Thinkin Bout You” by Frank Ocean
This song is an emotional act of a greater force, a whirlwind that will sweep you up and send you soaring, much like the tornado it starts with. In the absence of explicit sexual content, the song reads like a journal entry that no one else should have seen. We can’t help but fall in love with Frank’s falsetto in this song about love and the creating of it.
“Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye
Even though Marvin Gaye has many great songs, “Sexual Healing” is one of the most seductive. If you’ve ever felt like you were being swaddled in a mesmerizing rhythm that wouldn’t let you go until you were entirely healed, this is the album for you. Although Gaye’s voice is a little softer and more compassionate than normal, the raw, sweaty eroticism of his voice remains undiminished. Don’t forget the erotic Hippocratic Oath if you want to restore closeness.
“Untitled (How Does It Feel)” by D’Angelo
D’Angelo’s unnamed homage to sexuality is a staple on lists of the most sensual songs. We’re transported to a sun-dappled afternoon of debauchery as the voices teeter just a fraction of a second behind the percussion. While he’s singing, D’Angelo can be seen grinning at the microphone as he delivers some of the most sensual lyrics ever written. Check out the music video if you haven’t already. There is no need to be concerned.
“Love To Love You Baby” by Donna Summer
Donna Summer was perhaps more astonished than anybody when she became a sex icon of the 1970s. She was once a devoutly Christian church singer. Summer’s delicate lead vocals complement the song’s breezy pace, but it was her backing vocals that made history. The Queen of Love originally resisted Giorgio Moroder’s request to record an uncomfortably sultry backing vocal track, but the sultry wall of sound she produced put this song firmly in the top tier of all-time sex songs.
“Lollipop” by Lil Wayne
With the appropriate amount of grime, this mashup of rap, rock, and gaming music will have you begging for more. While the lyrics are unabashedly blunt, Wayne’s voice has just a hint of Autotune to make it seem like a chocolate bar in the gutter. Sweeter than the namesake lollipop, the rhythm oozes with honey and warmth, smoother than the candy.
‘I Just Wanna Make Love to You’ by Etta James
At Last!, Etta James’s first album, was released in 1961, and this sultry, swinging, seductive, and sassy blues track reveals a lot about her personality. Furthermore, it demonstrated that she was a lady who had her priorities straight. It’s safe to assume that the soul diva got precisely what she wanted in the bedroom when she released the song, since it promptly went to the top of the charts.
‘Sex with Me’ by Rihanna
With songs like “S&M” and “What’s My Name,” Ri-career Ri’s is chock-full of sexually explicit material. “Sex with me, so great” is a promise that nearly begs you to place this music at the top of your playlist.
‘Friendly Skies’ by Missy Elliott featuring Ginuwine
Ginuwine was the R&B king of freaking out in the ’90s, and this duet with hip-queen hop’s of sauce, Missy Elliott, is his biggest moment. Ginuwine and Missy are seated next to one other on an aircraft, with Missy as the stewardess. “Please abstain / Stay in your seat / Until we reach the summit,” coos Missy, “Until we feel the turbulence and maintain.” Swooning R&B is achieved through the song’s many textures and tempo changes.
