Music to make love by?
Had a twitter conversation the other day with a woman asking about acceptable music for Christians to play during sex. Interesting question. I would exclude anything with profanity, lyrics about fornication, adultery, or rape, or anything with background sound that is supposed to be people having sex. Beyond that, I would think it’s a matter of personal preference. Personally, I’d shy away from anything with lyrics, for the distraction factor. That may not be an issue for some. For some, music they really like might be a distraction. Music that is associated with a particular person, event, or time in the past could be good or bad, depending on the association.
What about using Christian music for lovemaking? I don’t see that as sacrilegious (actually I see it as the opposite), but distraction and association are factors here too. If you or your bride fight any “sex is bad” thinking, music that makes you think of God or church might not be helpful during sex.
By the way, the discussion on this was because of a tweet I passed on that said music was a good way help a woman get in the mood. While this is not true for all women, it is for many. A problem for many women is distracting thoughts, and music can help with that. Music also adds cover sound, which will help women who are concerned about being heard.
