There’s nothing worse than being in the moment with your sexual partner(s), and then a song comes on that totally kills the vibe. Perhaps it’s as simple as a man crooning, “B*tch, eat my d*ck for breakfast,” that just doesn’t do it for you — no offense to Lil Wayne. Still, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some raunchy lyrics from the female gaze.
Female singers have been singing about good sex since the dawn of time. Or, at the very least, since icons like MC Lyte made it clear they were done with the double standard that men could talk about their sexuality, but women couldn’t. From early 2000s classics from Britney Spears to modern-day bangers by the ever-so-talented Janelle Monáe, there are plenty of sexually explicit songs to fill a sex playlist dedicated to horniness.
We’ve gathered the hottest, dirtiest, downright depraved songs that may or may not be censored on the radio, such as throwbacks like Toni Braxton’s “You’re Making Me High” and fresh tracks that just hit Spotify like “Needs” by Tinashe. Whether you use this list as a sex playlist for some solo or partnered fun or use it to get ready for a girls’ night out with friends, that’s up to you. In the meantime, enjoy the porny puns and not-so-subtle innuendos from the queens that gave us hip-hop, pop, R&B, and more.
