Most Portland musicians don't want to talk about doing it. Or so it seemed when we asked dozens of Portland musicians about their favorite sex songs. Like with so many other topics, it's all in how you ask the question. So here are some of Portland's finest on their favorite sweaty, nasty hump-jams and/or the songs they find to be steamy. Happy Valentine's Day, and good luck with your holiday sexing.
Katy Davidson, Key Losers
Tony Ozier, Doo Doo Funk All-Stars

Jen Bernard, The Stolen Sweets
Tope, TxE/Living Proof
Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere

Teddy Pendergrass, âTurn Off the Lights.â The lyrics might inspire some giggles, but that never hurt. Teddy reminds the listener what it means to be a considerate and hygienic lover. Plus, you gotta love that lush, tight Philly production.

Courtney Sheedy, Team Evil
Betty Wright, âTonight is the Night.â When I first heard this song, I had to turn the volume down from my parents. But now, honey, this is grown-folk lovinâ. Itâs just right for me.
