Musicians Make the Best Lovers (Here’s Why)

(Note from Vita: Listen to "All the Lovers by Kylie when you read this blog.)

As a classically trained musician, I’ve always been attracted to musicians. 

My lovers have included a violinist, a tympanist (those huge kettle drums), one who played Renaissance wind instruments (recorders and crumhorns), and a session guitarist who literally rocked my world.

Musicians are a whole different animal altogether. They are typically obsessed with making music. 

The expression, “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” was made for musicians. You will never take first place in their world unless you can join them.

Despite the huge difference in the types of music they played, I was able to join in the musical world of every one of these talented musicians.

I accompanied the violinist on piano, ushered at the orchestra concerts where the tympanist performed, and played the alto recorder in costume at the Renaissance Festival. I co-wrote songs, sang harmony and produced concerts with the rock guitarist.

While their musical styles were all over the map, one thing they all had in common was the ability to play me.

At first, it was a flirtatious dance, similar to the dance that most men and women do, except it’s all done with music playing an essential role in our romance.

Tympani players can make your kettle drums vibrate.
Men often turn to music as a way to express their deepest emotions. For some, music may be the only way they can really express themselves. 

Men also turn to music as a way to attract female attention; think of all the teenage boys who learn guitar with the hopes that it’ll help them land a cute girl.

The first and most important step is to acknowledge the man’s musical prowess. You’re genuine when you tell him that you find his music incredibly intoxicating. 

You tell him something unique and special that you noticed about his playing, and you relate your favorite songs. You tell him you want to hear more. And more.

You tell him you could listen to him all night long.

Now it’s his turn, and he wants to know how you know so much about music and whether you also play. The dance continues both verbally as well as in the way you both move and sway in rhythm to the music playing softly in the background.

You find yourself getting drawn in closer so that you’re touching each other occasionally, and every time you touch, you feel this incredibly super-charged, kinetic energy. Your skin tingles with the excitement of what’s to come.

Later, when you’re home and you’re talking and kissing on the couch, there’s no music playing. It would be too much, too distracting. 

Sweet violinists. Is there anything more romantic?
The two of you are literally making music together. You can almost hear it in the background; you both move in perfect rhythm to the music in your heads. There’s no awkwardness as your bodies naturally flow together.

He strums you like a fine instrument, making your body sing a song like no other. 

And every time you make love, it’s to a different song; it may be a soft, gentle ballad, a raunchy rock song, or a slow bluesy number. The song is in your heads and it reflects all the feelings that are going on between the two of you at that particular stage in your relationship.

You never know what the lovemaking will be like, because musicians feel more deeply and more profoundly than most men. They’re hyper sensitive. They’re true artists.

And that’s what makes them the best lovers of them all.
