Music and sex are like soulmates. But which music genres are the most sex-obsessed? Now, there’s a study for that.
When it comes to things nobody dislikes, music and sex always make the list. But while things like ‘ice cream’ and ‘music’ can easily coexist, music and sex enjoy a symbiotic relationship. In fact, your very existence is probably pegged to a particular artist.
In fact, many artists’ music revolve entirely around having sex, people who are sexy, or a general ‘sexiness’ that infects every note. And there are a couple of artists that are indispensable in the bedroom for some couples (more on that below).
But what music genres focus on copulation the most? That was the focus of a recent study conducted by Sapio, an interesting new dating app. Basically, Sapio scanned through thousands of song lyrics using Songmeanings.com, and bucketed word matches according to genre.
Here’s what they found.
And what about love?
That’s where things take a dramatic turn. Most of the time, songs are about love, not sex. But when it comes to term usage, the genre frequency completely shifts.
Next question: which artist sings about sex the most?
Sadly, he’s no longer with us.
And before you call out Prince for being obsessed with sex, check this out.
Artists that mention ‘love’ the most in their lyrics.
Sex sells. But love sells better.
Guess our society is more wholesome that we all thought. “When it comes to music, sex sells – but love sells even better,” Sapio relayed. Or at least that’s what the charts seem to indicate. Search the lyrics for this year’s top three songs and you’ll find the word “love” in two of them.
Actually, there’s a lot more research being done right now on this very topic. That includes explorations into what types of tempos, pitches, and styles that people pick most for getting it on. And, you guessed it: companies trying to tap a potentially lucrative market.
More on that soon.
