This Week In Sex Music
In the last segment of TWISM, we mentioned a few tracks that may (or may not, let me know!) have set the mood for an evening of glorious love making. This week we’re raising the bar a little bit. Oh hell, I’ll just be blunt and get to the point; this week we’re gonna talk about music to fuck to. Now we all know that music is one of the more subjective mediums of our culture, so I’d imagine people will completely disagree with what I’m about to list. All I can say to justify my list is the following; this music amps me up for a night of bondage, ball gags, and blindfolds. And as always, since this segment is all about sharing, please leave your suggestions!
