People Who Blast Music Together Have a Better Sex Life

People Who Blast Music Together Have a Better Sex Life:

“If music be the food of love, play on.” - Duke Orsino, Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night

Music is a furious invisible blood, pumping from soul to soul. We devour it in all kinds of delivery, from stereos to shows. There’s a genre, subgenre, sub-subgenre, band, and song for everyone. It’s a universal language that courses through each person, livening up the heart and transforming what can’t be put into words into sounds.

In short, music is rad as hell.

This is not news to you. You already know this because you’re a person and everyone likes music (and the ones who claim they don’t are either liars, contrarians, or demons). But maybe you weren’t wondering what exactly music does to a person, which, as we’ve established, is someone like you.

Sonos, on the other hand, was curious. Their team wanted to know what happened to their electronics once they were sold. Why were customers using their gear? What was the impact on their lives? How had their product changed their existence, hopefully for the better? To find out, the Sonos crew did up a global study of 30,000 participants to come back with some data—and it’s all good news.

Music makes your life wilder, especially when you blast it. Music played out loud, according to American respondents, makes you feel more inspired (by 25%), less irritable (by 24%), more active (by 22%), more enthusiastic (by 19%), more loved (by 16%), and more excited (by 14%).

And it does wonders for your sex life.

But you could’ve guessed that. I mean, how many inspired, non-irritable, active, enthusiastic, loved, and excited people aren’t having sex? The stunner here is how much. Well, it turns out couples who listen to music out loud together have way more sex—double, in fact. Couples blasting tunes get down 3.2 times per week, compared to the average 1.6 times per week of those who don’t. It makes sense, given that couples who blast music also spend 161% more time awake in the bedroom. Plus, for 3 in 10 people, music makes the sex better.

Music lends its hand to organizing the wild skin festival too, long before you start kicking shoes at the wall, hucking bras across the room, and making promises you can’t keep. 78% of the survey’s participants, who play music out loud, say they know what songs puts their partner in the mood (while only 46% of those who don’t listen to music out loud can say the same). Take it another step back. 65% of the participants say someone becomes more attractive if they play music that they love.

And more than a quarter of Americans would rather give up having sex than listening to music. So don’t undersell the majesty of music. Don’t think of it as just a way to pass the time or feel silly for thinking your life has an epic soundtrack, as 90% of the recipients thought music enhanced moments. Music is powerful (and sexy). Just make sure you blast it.

To keep reading up on how music transforms your pad into a retreat from the world, scope Music Makes It Home, which is Sonos’s follow-up to the survey, where they decked out 30 homes with sensors and brought in a fame neuroscientist. I wasn’t kidding. Sonos was really curious about what music does to you.
