Dancing might be one of the most sensuous forms of foreplay. You’re sweating, you’re moving and if you’re lucking, you’re grinding up on someone hot. We all need the right song with the right beat to help us get down, but have you ever stopped and listened to the lyrics of some of your favorite dance floor anthems? The songs aren’t just sexy; they’re straight up skipping all the foreplay and cutting ahead right to the sex. Don’t believe us? Take a listen to our Dirtiest Dance Songs playlist and check out the nastiest lyrics in these crowd-pleasing hits.
We kind of always knew that Nelly‘s “Hot In Herre” and Lil’ Kim‘s “How Many Licks?” were dirty dance floor anthems. After all, Nelly implores everyone to “take off all your clothes,” in the chorus of “Hot In Herre,” and Lil’ Kim goes into graphic detail about her sexual history in “How Many Licks?”
However, some dirty dance songs didn’t seem that dirty upon first listen at all. For some reason, middle schools across America were happy to let twelve year olds bop around to Next‘s ode to hard ons: “Too Close,” and the sexual metaphors in Ciara‘s “Ride” and Ginuwine‘s “Pony” could have been easily lost on most adolescents.
Let’s be real, though: each of the songs on this playlist are dirty, nasty and incredibly fun to dance to.
