This post is also available in: Español

Is there anything more wonderful than how great music makes you feel? Well, right, there’s gay sex. So, then songs about gay sex should truly be a … tumescent experience. Engorge and engage with the following gay sex playlist in honor of Pride.

Listen to our special songs about gay sex playlist:

1. Troye Sivan — “Bloom

If the young Australian truly doesn’t want to be a gay icon, as he’s claimed, then perhaps he shouldn’t extol the pleasures of tendering his rosebud in all manner of gardening metaphors. It’s possible, if you heard this in passing, you might mistake its intent, but the video lays it all out. (Though perhaps we could quibble about the ultra-femme posturing that tells the world that all bottoms are, essentially, women.)

Yet it’s a power move for a power bottom who’s got global conquest in his sights. And now that he’s declared his love of horticulture — to extend Sivan’s own metaphor — well, baby, it’s time to get plowed.

2. Frank Ocean — “Nights

Frank Ocean is such an enigma that he even builds riddles into his hookup songs. For example, we’re sure he’s getting head, nutting and dropping his “bruh” off, but is the “bruh” married? Is there more history here than we’re being shown? Is this a down-low vicious circle or simply a casual fuckbuddy situation? It’s hard to tell, and even Ocean isn’t sure. But that dick! That dick just keeps him coming back for more.

3. Eli Lieb — “Kissing Your Tattoos

We wish this Iowa-born, L.A.-based songwriter had a video for this very oral celebration of body ink and the temporary, though very spicy, pleasures of the one-night stand. Of course, the flip side is being left alone by a fickle lover, as happens on Lieb’s morning-after “Next to You.” Yet for the time at hand, Lieb’s keeping his plaything drenched and pulsing.

4. Scissor Sisters — “Harder You Get

LGBTQ Musicians Scissor Sisters Songs About Gay Sex Playlist

From its ass-tastic Robert Mapplethorpe cover photo to its 12 sinuous modern funk tracks that form an urban carnal odyssey, Scissor Sisters‘ third album Night Work is 45 minutes of nasty bizness (by which we mean gloriousness).

Pretty much any track could make this list — “Skin Tight” or the disco speedball title tune come to mind — but this persistent, unhurried groove is perfect for a sustained, slow fuck. And whatever the boys are up to between the beats, Jake Shears makes the end game clear when he teases his lover, “don’t point that thing at me unless you plan to shoot.” Always the pleasure-giver, his partner can barely walk out the door when it’s all over.

5. Franz Ferdinand — “Michael

Straight people need gay sex, too. (Honestly, they really do.) And though straight boys and girls have declared their bicurious intentions throughout pop history, no one’s ever been as forthcoming or downright sex-crazed as frontman Alex Kapranos here.

Sure, Katy Perry might have kissed a girl, but Kapranos went — or wants to go — much further. The song’s so insistent and claustrophobic about its dance floor roundelay you can practically smell Michael’s “leather hips, sticky hair, sticky lips.” Kapranos certainly can, and he wants more than just a kiss.

6. morgxn — “Love You with the Lights On

This Nashville-born pop artist could be the American Troye Sivan. And though he isn’t specific about what he wants to do on this mid-tempo electro piece, he’s not going to do it in the shadows. A common theme among songs about gay sex.

7. Cazwell feat. Avenue D — “Sex That I Need

If the title is the thesis, the song itself is the supporting evidence: “I been into foreskin since puberty”; “he eats my ass like he eats rice and beans”; “I’m on my knees pulling out the seeds.” The funny rapper and electroclash duo Avenue D spill it, and then lick it up, all in the name of polyamory. And if you’re really into facials, head straight to Cazwell’s “All Over My Face.”

8. The Smiths — “Handsome Devil

How anyone missed the gay content of this legendary Manchester quartet was always a head-scratcher. It should have been clear when Morrissey frankly admitted that “you can pin and mount me like a butterfly” on the very first track of their debut. So, in case you don’t know by now, or don’t remember, here is Exhibit A, and the cum-swapping furtive coupling going on at the heart — or is it loins? — of this slamming punk tune makes it plain. That falsetto yelp near the track’s end is either the fastest orgasm of the young Stephen Patrick’s life or the moment when he finally gets mounted the way he asked for it in 1984.

9. Frankie Goes to Hollywood — “Krisco Kisses

Before all the designer lubes and oils to help navigate easy rear entry, gay men of a certain age kept one of two things near their bed-stands (or in their leather sex satchels): Vaseline or Crisco. Certainly the New Wave provocateurs in Frankie Goes to Hollywood knew all about it; hence why they wanted us all to “Relax.”

10. Christeene — “Aktion Toilet

The terrorist drag performer known as Christeene (Paul Soileau) distills the pleasures of rest-area loving on this industrial strength electroclash number and its definitively NSFW video. The world is her glory hole, as it should be, but it’s merely a quick stop at the drive-through buffet of delights on offer.

And here are a few more to check out:

The Hidden Cameras — “Golden Streams” (golden showers, anyone?)

Cosmo Jarvis — “Gay Pirates” (ships a-whore, um, ahoy)

Tom Robinson — “Black Angel” (Mr. “Glad to Be Gay’s” interracial hookup from 1979)

The Hound — “Can’t Let You Go” (bears in their natural habitat)

John Grant — “Snug Slacks” (time to unwrap that package)

Kevin Abstract — “American Boyfriend” (figuring out your shit; high school football captain optional)
