Your choice of music (or even the choice to add any kind of music at all) can make or break a sexual encounter.
If I ever find myself in my room with a stranger, tangled up in the sheets with the lights off, odds are, there will be some type of Spotify playlist blasting in the background.
Personally, I think almost any track, whether something slow and sensual or with heavy beats and overtly sexual lyrics, can really rev you up before all of your clothes come off.
Plus, music drowns out the noises. And even though some people get off on the sounds of their own sex sounds, unless your walls are soundproof, it's best to add a buffer if things happen to get hot and heavy really fast. (And your roommates will probably thank you, too.)
But, of course, that's not to say every song in the history of the music industry is appropriate for every sexual experience.
If passionate love-making is on your agenda, maybe you should nix that throwback DMX song.
On the other hand, if you end up at someone's apartment and they've whipped out handcuffs, I'd say anything related to Ginuwine's "Pony" (or really anything from the "Fifty Shades of Grey" soundtrack) is a surefire win.
But if pairing up songs with sexual partners just isn't your forte, don't sweat it — that's why I'm here.
So now's your opportunity to up the ante if you aren't an avid music listener. Have an open mind and consider putting together some of your favorite jams — or even creating a playlist just for sex — with a variety of beats perfect for banging.
Now, think about how you spend your typical weekend, and answer the questions below to find out which ballad will work best when you're balls deep.
