Dance movies own us. Right? They’re irresistible. And the best ones have a lot in common. They’re glorified B movies (Breakin‘). They usually feature star-crossed lovers from disparate backgrounds (Save the Last Dance). The soundtracks are incredible (Flashdance). The titles are usually stolen from hip-hop slang that’s at least a year old (You Got Served — which means we’re due for a flick called Yolo! Twerk That Body). Throw all those elements together, and you have a classic guilty pleasure for the ages.
That’s correct, according to Science aka a study done by music streamers Spotify, the Dirty Dancing soundtrack is the most arousing song selection to play during sex. And because this is Science, it is ultimately accurate and someone needs to teach these Spotify users about Sam Cooke or something. More important, men need to stop letting their ladies choose the playlist, because apparently music does not matter as much to men as it does to women in the sack. This, again, is Science:
Dirty Dancing was the top pick for both men and women, although the study’s author, music psychologist Daniel Mullensiefen, also pointed out that men are more willing to adjust their tastes in music in order to ensure “greater success in the bedroom.”
Apparently, Science becomes Science again after you’re finished with carrying watermelons and such, because the number two sex song pick is Marvin Gaye‘s “Sexual Healing”. Ravel’s “Bolero” (which sounds like this) comes afterward.
