What do I mean by baby-making? I’m not talking about a stork or immaculate conception. I’m talking about songs that make you want to have sex. From a writer's point of view, the right song can get you in the perfect mindset to create a love scene where the sex is steamy and you constantly have to wipe your fogged up computer screen. In real life, the same song could put you in the mood to jump your partner’s bones and “get busy” without the need for foreplay.
Sometimes it’s the words, other times it’s just the melody. You’re really in trouble if it’s a combination of both.
I’ve put together a list of songs I think are sexy, in no particular order. Some of these are self-explanatory from the title alone. I may have to do a Part II to this list because it was supposed to be a list of ten, but I couldn’t stop. I finally had to cut myself off and accept there are a lot of songs that have been made that can get you into trouble.
The kings of baby-making music, Luther Vandross and Teddy Pendergrass belong on this list, but if I listed all of their songs, I wouldn’t have room for anyone else. Play a song by either of these guys and you will get laid. Guaranteed.
Honorable mentions are Sade, Joe, and Carl Thomas. I never heard a song from them I didn’t like.
Warning: These songs serve as an aphrodisiac. Play them at your own risk, and if you don’t plan to expand your family, stock up on birth control because you'll need it. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

- Do Me Baby, Bell Biv DeVoe - “You can do me in the morning, you can do me in the night, you can do me when you wanna do me." The not-so-subtle refrain, “Do me baby," and "Do you mind if I look at you while we make sweet love?" make this a winner.
