18 Non-Cringey Songs to Add to Your Sex Playlist

When we think about a sexy night in, we probably think of different things.

Some of us will think about massage and rose petals after a candlelit meal for two, followed by hours of sensual lovemaking.

Some of us will think of striped butt plugs, hoods and French maids.

But one of the things we can probably agree on is that there is a song that fits our mood in the bedroom, whether it be a raspy love ballad, throbbing trip hop or an upbeat pop tune about underwater life sung by a Trinidadian crab (what?).
