Getting in the Mood to Hit a Home Run

A large part of setting the mood is choosing the right song… This also happens to be one of the most challenging parts. When choosing an appropriate song to get down and dirty to you must first have an understanding of your partner and their personality. Choosing a song that is too cheesy for a partner that isn’t overly lovey dovey can be an automatic mood killer, and even a turn off, where as choosing a song that is too fast paced will cause a race to the finish line leaving both parties unsatisfied. In order to ensure that your experience is memorable and special you must think about your partner’s interests because after all it takes two to tango.
