More Music for a Romantic Evening

Published July 2, 2012 by Sandee


After writing my post with a list of unconventional music for a romantic evening, I read a post by purplemary54 at myelectronicjukebox, where she referred to the list as coitus musicalus.  I wish I had come up with this.  Coitus musicalus lends an air of erudition to the title of a list of music used for the purpose of accompanying the act of sex.  The blogging community is an infinite resource for ideas, a place to trade stories, share thoughts and our passion for music.  With my list I highlighted the idea that you could play music that more accurately reflects the complexities of sex and love, as so-called romantic music doesn’t always work during these moments.

Fred from That Fred Guy chimed in on the subject in the comments section of that post.  Fred’s comments make me laugh.  I love his sense of humor.  Okay everyone, just imagine the song that he suggested being played during a romantic ‘interlude’ — the theme from Jaws:

A Sword Chinned B**ch’s Romantic List of Music

Published June 28, 2012 by Sandee

The ideal portrayed in love songs is unattainable and frozen in time, static and packaged. Often these songs barely reflect the complexity of sex and relationships.  So I don’t want to hear this kind of music while I’m having sex.  I don’t need all that smooth-talking and flowery music.  If the sentiment expressed in these songs exists between me and the person I’m having sex with then we don’t need the artificial accompaniment.  I might enjoy listening to “love songs” when I’m not having sex however.  A couple of my favorites that might remotely be classified as ‘love songs’ still can’t even be strongly identified with the music typically considered such — ELP’s Still, I Just Wanna Make Love to You by Etta James,  and Girl Blue by the Main Ingredient.

Overall I find love songs too sugary.  The songs I like are wild, passionate, furious and have sensual and infectious rhythmic patterns and beats – isn’t that what great sex should be?  Check out at least a couple of a Sword Chinned Bitch’s songs to have sex to below:
