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?).
However, not every playlist is a suitable score for sexytimes. So to help you put together your perfect playlist for playtime, we've picked our top 18 sex songs - and there's no Barry White in sight.
‘A real pirate isn’t afraid to sail the red seas’, my boyfriend told me with a reassuring ‘YAARH’, throwing a towel on the bed underneath us.
I’d been nervous about explaining to him that Aunt Flo’s inconvenient arrival might prematurely end our hookup, but his nonchalance soothed my worries, and we proceeded to have amazing romantic sex.
It’s not unusual to feel a bit squeamish about period sex. A combination of cramps, hormonal acne and bloating never makes me feel particularly sexy around that time of the month, anyway. I’d always imagined period sex as vaguely resembling that scene from The Shining or the time I accidentally shook the ketchup bottle with the lid off.

Because of a fundamental lack of understanding of gender structure and identity, we're sometimes mystified by the matters of attraction - especially when it's in regard to TNBGF* individuals.
Part of the problem is that we tend to look at gender as if it were like a single pair of shoes, in which you have only left or right, and nothing in between.
