1. "Sound and Color" by Alabama Shakes
As soon as the first notes of this indie gem hit your ears, you'll feel compelled to take action. They start off slow and deep, penetrating your chest with their resonance. Alabama Shakes is ready to kick off the night with a bang.
2. "Freak" by Doja Cat
You've probably come across this track all over TikTok, and there's a good reason why. It may sound sweet at first, but the lyrics are actually quite spicy. "Freak like me, you want a good girl that does bad things to you, you never been with no one as nasty as me." Playing this early on in the playlist sets the sensual tone while also hinting at the wild and kinky things to come later.
3. "Surprise Yourself" by Jack Garratt
This next slow and seductive track has a similar vibe to "Sound and Color" and boasts a bassline that will fill the entire room with a sultry resonance. Take the lyrics, "Keep exploring, seek and find, you know you might surprise yourself," to heart and explore each other's bodies to your heart's content.
4. "Love on the Brain" by Rihanna
When spending a steamy night with your significant other, selecting a song that combines both sensuality and love is a great option. Rihanna's "Love on the Brain" is the perfect choice for those intimate moments when you're in the mood for "making love" rather than just the frenzied pursuit of physical satisfaction that sometimes accompanies casual encounters.
5. "Pillowtalk" by Zayn
As the tension begins to mount, this will be the last song in the sweet and seductive section of the evening. Let Zayn's voice seduce you both into focusing on each other's pleasure. His lyrics, "I love to hold you close, tonight and always," could be just what you need before, during, and after this unforgettable night of passion.
6. "All the Time" by Jerimih, Lil Wayne, and Natasha Mosley
Things are really heating up now! You may recognize this song from the finale of Magic Mike XXL, where Channing Tatum and Twitch teamed up for an unforgettable performance. If this song is good enough for them, then it's definitely good enough for us!
7. "Dangerous Woman" by Ariana Grande
If you ever find it difficult to channel your inner sexy badass in the bedroom, then "Dangerous Woman" is the song for you. It's the perfect track for those who may sometimes feel "too good" or "too inexperienced" to let loose and get a little naughty. By this point in the playlist, you should be feeling incredibly sexy and empowered.
8. "Gorilla" by Bruno Mars
The notion that Bruno Mars is only for middle-aged moms is completely dispelled with this sultry track. Who would have thought Bruno could get so down and dirty? Let yourself groove to these steamy lyrics: "I bet you never ever felt so good, so good, I got your body trembling like it should, it should, you'll never be the same baby once I'm done with you."
9. "Gimme More" by Britney Spears
Let Britney Spears (#FreeBritney) serenade you and your partner into trying some spicy new sex positions. Her lyrics about crazy positions and getting up against a wall are a fantastic reminder that sticking to just one position is a surefire way to a dull and lackluster sex life. Thank you, Britney!
10. "MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)" by Lil Nas X
It's impossible to exclude "Montero" from your steamy playlist, especially after witnessing Lil Nas X giving Satan a lap dance in the music video. Channel some of his electrifying energy for your very own lap dance.
11. "Sucker for Pain" by Lil Wayne, Imagine Dragons, and more
This track may just be the only redeeming quality of the first Suicide Squad film. Originally created for the soundtrack, it's packed with lyrics that are ideal for couples who enjoy exploring BDSM in the bedroom. Even if you're only interested in a little bit of kink, this song still hits the spot.
12. "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails
Few songs are as explicit as this one. Trent Reznor's "Closer" cuts straight to the point: "I wanna fuck you like an animal. I wanna feel you from the inside." This track sheds all the euphemisms and gets downright raunchy, making it the perfect finale for your intimate night.
