CLASSIC GROOVES

Bow-chicka-wow-wow. A whole generation was spawned to the smooth sounds of buttery-voiced singers like Marvin Gaye and Al Green — if your mom gets all starry-eyed and starts smirking when she hears the tell-tale chords of “Let’s Get It On,” chances look good that you were conceived to a classic groove.

ROCK

You might think sexy rock music is downright dirty and, in some cases, you’d be right — “I wanna f*ck you like an animal?” It doesn’t get much kinkier than that. But many rock songs are surprisingly sensitive, so you can break up all the a** smacking going on with some soulful staring.

OLD SCHOOL SLOW JAMS

If the early nineties are remembered for grunge music, then the legacy of the late nineties has to be the old school R&B slow jam. These songs put up no pretenses: They were all about the booty call, baby. But, in the infamous words of R. Kelly, I don’t see nothing wrong with a little bump and grind.

COUNTRY

Detractors may claim country can’t be sexy, but — coming from someone raised in a rural southern town — trust me when I say tractors, tight jeans and drawls are aphrodisiacs in their own right. Besides, when you live in the middle of nowhere, what better way to — ahem — pass the time?

“Your Man” by Josh Turner

“Come a Little Closer” by Dierks Bentley
