Spotify Reveals the 25 Best Songs for Sex

The coolest thing about Spotify is how they analyze all the data they acquire from everyone who uses their service. One of the company’s latest revelations is a list of songs that are the best soundtracks for boinking.

Spotify looked at 2.5 million playlists tagged with “sex” and aggregated the most often-selected songs on “music to have sex to” lists. Note two things:  (1) All the songs are really quite current (i.e. less than two years old) and; (2)The xx song is just 127 seconds long. Keep this list handy because you never know, right?
