So you’re in that kinda mood, eh? Well you’re in luck (but you already knew you were getting lucky) because these are some of the best albums to get down to, if you know what I mean.

Coexist | The xx

If you’re looking to get sensual with a significant other or hook up buddy, Coexist by The xx is a always a great option. The balance between soft, slow beats and fast rhythm and is sure to set the mood.

If it’s something a little more sexy that you’re looking for, you cannot go wrong with alt-J’s This Is All Yours. I mean, Every Other Freckle is the type of song that would get anyone hot ’n heavy. So if this is a casual or first time hook-up, look no further.

The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind The Madness is also a great album for a soundtrack to get your heart pumping. This is classic one on one postgame music, not horribly overwhelming but will definitely keep the party going — the party in your pants, that is. 

Beauty Behind the Madness | The Weeknd

For a hypnotic and fun kind of love, go for Milky Chance’s Sadnecessary. With the different sounds and beats going on, it’s a sure thing to get you doing the horizontal tango.

Finally, if you’re going for a romantic evening, then try Into The Flame by Matt Corby. It’s slow and mostly acoustic so most of your attention can go to that special someone. Plus, Corby’s voice will not only melt your hearts, it will melt your pants right off.

So, now that you have the best of the best for any sexy situation, go out (or in) and enjoy yourselves you crazy kids. Just keep this in mind: there are definitely artists and songs you do NOT want to listen while you’re getting intimate. So if your thoughts went to a band like Vampire Weekend, I don’t care how much you like them — you (and your partner) will never feel that same way again.


“Let me just preface this with rum and coke is delicious, but not if you haven’t eaten dinner. So, I was at a party at UMD and ran into a guy I had been crazy into for a long time. We finally started making out and asked if I wanted to go back to his room. Clearly I said, “YES! Have you seen how pretty you are?!” We get back to his room, and after asking me about 12 times if I wanted to have sex, we started to get down to business. He warned me he wouldn’t be able to cum, but drunk me was convinced I would be the one to solve that issue! So, we had sex and then I said, “Go sit on the futon, I wanna make you cum.” He did and so I started to give him head and that my friends, is when I realized JUST how drunk I was. Just kidding, throwing up all over his NAKED lap and orange futon was when I realized how drunk I was. He cleaned it, and himself up, and when he got back from the bathroom I was crying and ready to bolt the ef outta there cause that was embarrassing. Long story short, he told me I was pretty and continued to hook up with me. Not all heroes wear capes, people.” – Captain Morgan, 19 (Is this not the same UMD guy as this article?)

“I was hooking up with this guy over the summer and I always had to sneak in and out of his house because his parents were not cool with having people over. So, I was over his house and we had just finished having sex and were just laying in bed when his mom came home from work early. Before I could even put a shirt on, she came to his room and knocked on the door and he said, “Just a minute!” and shoved me BEHIND HIS DOOR. He then proceeded to open said door and talk to his mom who apparently needed to borrow a draw-string bag. I could LITERALLY see her through that crack where the door hinges are. I don’t think I have ever not breathed longer in my life. Once his mom went into her room, I got dressed in maybe .7 seconds and sprinted down his stairs, to my car, and told him next time I’m hiding in the closet.” – Freaking Ninja, 19
