I Made The Perfect Gen Z Sex Playlist. You’re Welcome.

There are tons of what I can only assume are carefully crafted sex playlists on Spotify, but none of them were quite what I was looking for. We had the best sex songs of 2021, we had sex songs for the gays, indie sex songs and dirty sex songs and what was totally not a lesbian sex playlist, but where was the playlist curated specifically for Gen Z?

I asked over three dozen of my Gen Z peers what songs they’d want on their ideal sex playlist, and despite having my initial assumptions about what would make for the perfect playlist, I quickly found out that I had a radically misconstrued perception of Gen Z’s music taste. My first attempt was a complete and utter flop (why’d you all have to be so savage?), so for all you Gen Z’ers who are – or will be – active in the bedroom, I hope this time I’ve made you proud.

Here is a two-hour (obviously I crafted this with the intention of you consuming it beyond just one sitting *wink*) compilation of songs to make your “sexy time” even sexier, as told by Gen Z, for Gen Z.
