Erotic Motivations

Get hot and bothered — to write!

It’s coming up on a month since I started this wild journey with Medium- and MonalisaSmiled challenged me (along with several others) to put together a playlist of songs that inspire.

HOW, exactly, she knew I used music for that purpose is beyond me. Guess I’m not that original, it seems. ;)

Fitting, though, since today I’m just not “feeling it.” In my experience, that’s the best time to revisit (and perhaps reaffirm or reevaluate) what inspires me to begin with.

Unlike MonaLisaSmiled, I write more broad spectrum erotica. For now. It’s all over the place, really. I enjoy doing fantasy erotica, with a supernatural edge, but so far what people like most is my normal sexy stuff. It’s pretty vanilla, yet has a sort of excited, lighthearted passion to it.

That kind of mood is what I try to evoke with music.

So far, the most effective playlist (as I have several) is filled with purely Daft Punk:

  1. One More Time
  2. Around the World (I often repeat this one)
  3. I Feel It Coming (feat. Daft Punk)
  4. Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (because of course)
  5. Voyager
  6. Technologic
  7. Aerodynamic (Daft Punk Remix)
  8. Make Love
  9. Doin’ It Right (feat. Panda Bear)
  10. Verdis Quo
  11. Give Life Back to Music
  12. TRON Legacy (End Titles)
  13. Musique
  14. The Game of Love
  15. Too Long
  16. Phoenix
  17. Beyond

Daft Punk has that lighthearted, energetic, excited passion that my erotica depends on. It’s got depth if the listener is paying attention, but works just as well in the background as superficial party noise, too.

However, lately I’ve created another playlist of instrumentals. It’s still new, so verdict is out on how effective it will be (and what tone it might bring to the writing). That being said, here’s the list:

  1. CupcakKe — CPR
  2. Daft Punk — Get Lucky ft
