Rihanna – “Sex With Me”
“I picked this not because I put this song on to make love – because in general, I don’t put music on – but because it’s what I think about myself, hahaha.”

Gabriel Garzón-Montano – “Pour Maman”
“It’s sweet, subtle, and deep. Sounds like a veil of warm twilight rain. It’s as if the wetness of your tongue could light a flame. The closeness of your mouth becomes a matchbook.”

Lapalux – “U Never Know”
“The reason why this song is my favorite sex jam is because first of all, the lyrics really get to me. I love the mysterious feeling of the song, but what I really love the most is the deep sounds in the hook; sonically it just wakes up all your senses and puts you in a mood that takes your mind to another atmosphere. It makes me feel different; I only listen to it when I’m with one specific person.”

FKA Twigs – “Two Weeks”
“I think this song has all the components to put you in the mood and in the moment. It’s sensual and sexual. Powerful and raw. It envelops you in some kind of ecstasy before you get totally there with a lot of lust involved. Seductive and intense from the melodies and beats to the voice of Twigs.”

Bad Company – “Feel Like Making Love”
“Because nothing says ‘I love you’ more than chili-cheese fries on the back of a Chevy El Camino. That will get the motor going for damn sure. I bet you millions were born thanks to this song.”

Feng Suave – “Sink into the Floor”
“For years in my neighborhood, I lived in a hallway with very thin wood separating each bedroom and each house, so you could hear all the neighbors. I got used to leaving YouTube on shuffle every time I have sex with someone.”

Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin – “Je t’aime…moi non plus”
“Serge’s songs have to be some of the sexiest music ever created; he is on top with Marvin Gaye. Once you hear the first notes of ‘Je t’aime,’ you want to take your clothes off and stop time with your lover…the orgasmic sounds just give you goosebumps.”

Helado Negro – “Myself On 2 U”
“It’s a song I wrote about sharing the same bed with my partner. The in-between moments – more so the moments when the other person has to get up in the middle of the night or steals your covers and steps on you. The song is about this slumber battle, possibly hours after sex. In the song I say, ‘Sometime you come step on me…Then we’ll see who steps on who.'”

Caloncho – “Diario”
“It’s a song inspired by the kind of coitus that’s drenched in thick, perfumed fluids.”

Soda Stereo – “En Remolinos”
“I chose this song because I love it. I love Gustavo Cerati’s voice and the lyrics. Actually, all of Dynamo is a great album to have sex with your partner to. The part that goes, ‘To bloom looking at your eyes’ is beautiful! And it ends with ‘both of us bloom, bloom.'” Gorgeous! A ritual of a song for a ritual of love.”
