Listening to Music Increases Your Chances of Having Sex
Cueing up some “mood music” before putting the moves on your partner is kind of the standard go-to when it comes to the art of seduction. There are real reasons for this. It turns out, people who listen to music out loud (versus through headphones) have a much higher chance of sealing the deal. The data speaks for itself.
According to a 30,000-person survey conducted by neuroscientist Daniel J. Leviti (in partnership with, of course, a sound-system company), if you have music on in your home, your chances of getting laid dramatically increase.
Sixty-seven of those surveyed reported that they have more sex when music is on regularly at their houses. The study also found that those who listen to music at home spend an average of 3 hours and 13 minutes more time together than those who don’t. That is some much-needed intimacy.
Music Can Influence Who You Choose to Have Sex With
Have you ever been out with your wife or girlfriend and your favorite sexy song comes on, and out of nowhere, you’re ready to get down? Of course you have. It’s science.
According to a study published in the Journal of Media Psychology, certain pop music can actually influence your interest in a potential sexual partner. The study found that participants who listened to sexually suggestive music before judging possible partners were much more inclined to want to have sex.
Now, pop music might not be your first choice, but those lyrics are pretty damn suggestive. When the words pumping through the speakers are all about sex, you’ll probably wind up with sex on the brain.
Music Makes You Feel Good as Hell
According to a study published in Nature Neuroscience, music has the same pleasure-inducing effect on the brain as other feel-good experiences such as having orgasms and doing drugs.
Researchers studied images of the brain while subjects listened to music. They discovered that the same areas of the brain light up when listening to our favorite music as when we’re experiencing sexual pleasure. The study showed that, when we jam out, our brains are flooded with dopamine, the pleasure chemical — the same chemical instigated by more scandalous vices.
Music Makes It Easier to Approach the Person You're Into
When you have the right music, you’re capable of anything. Including, apparently, getting a date. According to a According to a French study, listening to positive music might make it easier to approach a potential mate. Researchers broke subjects into two groups. One listened to romantic music, and the other, neutral sounds.
Results found that female subjects who listened to romantic songs were more receptive to male interest than those who did not. So if you’re interested in picking someone up, cross your fingers there’s R&B on the stereo and not, say, the sounds of the forest.
The Songs that Work for Americans
While subjective to individual taste, certain musical artists have been shown to have a more positive effect on setting the mood for sex. So, before you mix your next playlist, consider some of these findings.
According to the study’s findings, Marvin Gaye was the artist most likely to get people in the mood, as 27 percent of participants said Gaye would be their top choice. Lionel Richie secured 18 percent of the vote, with Luther Vandross at a close 16 percent. The study also found that 30 percent of Americans enjoy music during sex, and 25 percent believe music actually makes sex better. So, the next time you’re looking to seal the deal, be sure you’ve got a choice playlist ready to go. It might make all the difference.
