When preparing for a romantic evening in, there is a lot you can do to prepare the atmosphere for a seriously dreamy, fulfilling experience. Light some softly scented candles, turn the lights down low and maybe light some incense.
By the way, if you just want Spotify, Sirius XM and Pandora playlists, then you can skip to them by clicking here.
The ambient lighting and enticing smell in the air is a good beginning, but what will really set the tone for the evening is the music. Plan ahead and make your own mix of the best songs to make love to so you can play them in the background as you romance the pants off of your significant other. What you want is basically a soundtrack of the best love making songs to “enhance the romance”. Speaking of romance, here’s some tips on how to be more romantic with your boo.
The candles and incense will add to the atmosphere, but the right choice of song to have sex to is what will make your evening epic.
You and your partner may have different tastes in music, but have no fear. Pick songs that you know you both like or even make the music mix together as part of the fun. Some of the best songs to make love to have no words at all, but are arrangements of different acoustic sounds, ambient sounds or purely instrumentals.
If you want the evening to be soft and low key, perhaps some harp music will bring out the affectionate side to you both. If you think he might like a more playful and upbeat evening, Latin music is a good, energetic choice. Whichever genre you pick, think about playing it through dinner to start getting both of you in the mood.
There are other reasons to have a soundtrack of the best songs to make love to, especially if either of you is self-conscious about the sounds you make while making love…by the way everyone makes these sounds, it’s nothing to be worried about!
Having the right music in the background can ease your mind and ensure that the both of you stay relaxed and focused on the purpose of the evening, which is to enjoy each other to the fullest in the most romantic setting possible. This is another reason to work together to make a compilation of music for your evening.
The last thing you want is for a song to come on that one or both of you dislike. Remember, the best song to make love to are songs you both can relax and enjoy, not necessarily these suggestions below…although they are pretty darn good, if I do say so myself.
