Unlucky in love? Log off Tinder and start adding music to your iTunes library. A recent study conducted by smart speaker manufacturer Sonos, Apple Music and neuroscientist Daniel Levitin revealed that music can actually improve your sex life. Not only is there a connection between sexual attraction and musical taste, but we have more sex when we’re listening to our favorite tunes.
Sonos surveyed 30,000 listeners and conducted an in-home experiment where 30 households spent one week without music and one week listening to music out loud. They discovered that with music playing, the distance between household members decreased by 12%, they spent 4.5 more hours together and they were 18% more likely to say “I love you” to one another.
Couples experienced more intimacy too, reporting 37% more awake time in bed doing you-know-what (we’re guessing Zayn Malik’s new song was playing in the background). And if you date someone with similar musical tastes, the physical attraction is even higher. Nearly 59% of listeners said they’re more attracted to people who play music they enjoy.
Guys, in case you were wondering, playing Rihanna is a great way to win points this Valentine’s Day. You’re welcome.
