In the UK has been commissioned study for the influence of music on romantic situations. About 40 percent of all respondents said that they music during sex makes the experience even more exciting. As the most appropriate music to listen to during sex is selected the soundtrack music from the movie “Dirty Dancing”. “Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye also is regarded as the song of whose background, probably each one would like to have sex.

Music psychologist Dr. Daniel Müllensiefen from Goldsmiths College, University of London, conducted the investigations. Were interviewed 2,000 persons aged 18 to 91 years, the number of interviewed women and men was approximately equal. The study shows that when it comes to the bedroom, about 40 percent of respondents said that the music they listen to during sex is exciting for them as and the touching by her partner. “The fact that so many respondents perceive music in the bedroom as exciting is not surprising,” says Dr.Müllensiefen.

“From neuroscience research, we know that music stimulates the same pleasure centres in the brain which are activated by stimuli such as food intake, drug use or just sex.” As already mentioned, as the most exciting musical accompaniment during sex is chosen the soundtrack of the ’80-s strip “Dirty Dancing”. Ravel’s “Bolero” surprising received the third place. “Music from Dirty Dancing also is perceived from women and men as romantic.

Such estimates are usually based on shared cultural reference points – such as movies, “explains Dr.Müllensiefen. “People use the music that is targeted to communicate their intentions in certain situations and to take direct influence on mood. The study has also shown that men their music tastes and listening habits vary more in favour of greater sexual success than women – which explains why, “Dirty Dancing” is equally popular between both sexes.

The study also showed 20 of the best songs determined which are suitable to bring listeners in the mood for sex. “We have seen that the songs that are most likely in the mood bring for sex, basically have the same characteristics “, says Dr.Müllensiefen.
