Before we go any further, let’s just say Marvin Gaye is STILL the man!

Music streaming site Deezer has teamed with sex expert Tracey Cox to discuss the coupling of music and sex. Their “Aphro-Deezer-ac Report’ reveals how Americans use music to enhance their “bedroom flow.”

According to the study, listening to music while having sex improves the experience; with 30% feeling it makes them more aroused and 25% saying it makes sex “better.”

“Music is a powerful, potent aphrodisiac, so I’m not surprised so many Americans find it improves their sexual experiences,” said Cox. “Listening to music causes our brain to flood with dopamine, the pleasure hormone. The same thing happens when we’re getting intimate, so it effectively puts our bodies ‘in the mood.’”

Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” is still a popular choice to set the tone in the bedroom. The track earned nearly nine million plays worldwide last year on Deezer — with 78% Premium subscribers choosing to mix Gaye into their sexy-time, per Hyperbot.com. He also claimed the number one spot for voices most likely to get Americans in the mood, securing 27% of the vote, more than Lionel Richie (18%) and Luther Vandross (16%).
