If you’ve ever danced the night away, then you know how truly liberating, invigorating and therapeutic it can be to just let it loose on the dance floor. Music has a way of touching the soul in an extraordinary and profound way. Whether fueled by a DJ or a live band, dancing is quite similar to sex. By allowing yourself to fully delve into the veritable vibration of what you perceive, you’re able to become fully present to the physical sensations that you might not otherwise be keen to. It puts you completely in the moment and harmonizes your internal and external movements with the cadence of the energy current flowing in and around your entire body.
Music is similar to sexual energy – whether it’s rhythmic, melodic, gentle or robust. Sex can be soft and sweet – a relaxing exchange of soothing affection with tranquil tenderness like peaceful, acoustic ambient chill music. Or sex can be vigorous and dynamic – a spirited romp full of passion and eroticism, like high-energy electronic dance music or a powerful dramatic symphony. Often sex is a combination of movements and transitional interludes – an ebb and flow of infinite variations, like a rambling jam session with numerous instruments and capricious interplay. The energy builds and builds, gaining momentum, and when the song finally reaches its crescendo, it is akin to sexual climax.

Bonnie Raitt once said of Jimi Hendrix’s Purple Haze, “After the first time I heard it, I had to go and change my pants…” Aficionados of music, especially live music, know that soulful musicians can project their sexual energy through their instruments. Hendrix embodied this notion and inspired subsequent generations of musicians. It has been widely suggested and mostly agreed that his guitar was truly an extension of his penis. Bonnie, and millions of others, were hip to this. As with many musicians, Jimi handled his favorite instrument like it was an adored lover, affectionately directing its power and potential, fingering and fondling to evoke a marvelously seductive performance. Jimi’s vibe was carried further through the synching of his band to co-create a harmonious undulation of resonance that can be felt throughout every cell of your being. Most live bands feed off the energy of the crowd, creating a symbiotic accord and intensifying the connection.
The kind of music you enjoy can define much about who you are. You can certainly discover a lot about someone’s personality, interests, philosophies and beliefs by their preferred playlist.
