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.

Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere

Mike Midlo, Pancake Breakfast

Danny Seim, Menomena
Teddy Pendergrass, “Turn Off the Lights.” 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.

Amanda Spring, Point Juncture, WA

DJ Spark/Sparker Lewis, Sandpeople

Courtney Sheedy, Team Evil

Betty Wright, “Tonight is the Night.” When I first heard this song, I had to turn the volume down from my parents. But now, honey, this is grown-folk lovin’. It’s just right for me.

Chris Funk, The Decemberists
