Doing both at the same time is pretty good too.

Interesting article is interesting.

"Researchers even say they can predict whether we will buy a song based on the reaction of our brain."

Buy. That's just precious.

As a musician, I find music to be a very different pleasure zone than sex. I like both, but they don't mix too well for me. Unless we're talking about a heavy metal chick who likes to have sex to Slayer or something, that can be hawt. But as mush as I adore Gustav Mahler, there's no erections happening during Symphony No. 2 (despite the lyrical command to 'rise again').

I used to have a punk rawk grrrlfriend who's favorite song to have sex to was Black Flag's "Slip It In".

Worked for me.

So punk rock is like being thrown to the floor and violated anally?

No, that would be Roseanne singing the National Anthem.

Punk rock sex is extremely horny young people who have no idea what they're doing jumping and writhing all over each other.

Metal sex is people who have learned some skills, but still like it hardcore.

And just for fun: Prog-Rock sex is sex that lasts for hours and hours, uses every technique and position you can think of, but when you're done you're not sure what the point was.

I love prog-rock, doesn't mean I can't poke fun at its occasional absurdity.

I'm just happy prog and sex got mentioned in the same universe.

Never mind licking the alphabet. Lick along with the time signature changes in "Firth of Fifth". Chicks dig the 13/16 in particular.

Before I clicked on that second link, I told myself I'd post Yakkity Sax, if yours wasn't. You're good.

The way my sex life is going, looks like it's time to put together a nice stereo system for the house.

Massive Attack's Mezzanine album is good for those heavy petting sessions that turn into farking. You pretty much have no choice, the music forces you to go forward. It's just a matter of time before the gals over at  Jezebel try to have it banned.

Bolero? Sounds like a good time if you're into afternoon sex with a middle age neighbor in the sunroom. (Not that there's anything wrong with that)

I don't know about the rest of you, but the sex I have been having is WAY better than any music I have ever heard, produced, composed, or was exposed to.

And if a song ever makes me orgasm, I'll be surprised.
 
2013-04-14 05:11:57 PM  
I'd have gone with Elgar's Concerto in E Minor, but Ravel is a good call. Interesting article too.
 
2013-04-14 07:06:12 PM  
someone needs to have better sex...
 
2013-04-14 10:44:52 PM  
I can tell you that listening to my upstairs neighbor practicing his drumming at 11 o'farking clock at night is not better than sex. His drumset is literally directly above my bed.

JPINFV: Timeline of percussionist's thoughts while performing Ravel's Bolero....

"make it stop!"



Eh, it's just because they're not losing brain function.   If their brains were withering away, like Ravel's was, then they'd love it!

If you've never sexed to Yes's "Starship Trooper," you don't know what you're missing.
