Music 22/12/2016
What’s the highest month for births in this country? September. You know what that means? It means there’s a whole lot of sex happening nine months prior…

Over Christmas and New Years.

That’s now. Right now. Ayyyye. Mate. Get to it.

But first make sure you’ve got the sexy jams on lock.

In the spirit of Christmas and giving (bahaha, giving, see what we did there), a bunch of music streaming services have revealed the tunes that feature the most often on people's sex playlists, the singers that are all round sexy time winners, and also the voices you should probably avoid.

We just had to share this info with you all, cause you know music lubes us up like nothing else.

It was Billboard who teamed up with streaming service Deezer and sex expert Tracey Cox to explain the science behind why music gets us all in the mood.

“Music is a powerful, potent aphrodisiac,” said Cox. “Listening to music causes our brain to flood with dopamine, the pleasure hormone. The same thing happens when we’re getting intimate, so it effectively puts our bodies ‘in the mood.'”

“Physiologically, people’s bodies love deep bass sounds, which, if loud enough, also produces vibration and make it powerfully arousing,”

The research also found that Saturday night from 8 pm until 10 pm was the most popular time for people to hit the sheets.

Makes sense? Sweet. Music time.
