Who knew how many songs about masturbation were really emanating from our radios and listening devices? From Prince to Pink and even the Who, so many of the musicians we know and love are getting down to songs about getting off – but you’d never know it unless you’re REALLY listening. ;-) Check out five of our favorite songs about masturbation – and the sex toy that makes their perfect masturbatory match – below!
Nicki Minaj, "Feeling Myself" – Rabbit Vibrator
“Never left but I'm back at it, and I'm feelin' myself, jack rabbit
Feelin' myself, back off, cause I'm feelin' myself, jack off
He be thinking about me when he whacks off, wax on? Wax off”
This one, maybe you knew – after all, it’s right there in the title: Nicki’s feelin’ herself! This sexy track, which also features Beyoncé, is a masterstroke in reclaiming masturbation as an expressive act of female sexuality, not just something for the fellas. As for the perfect toy to pair with one of the most well-known songs about masturbation? It has to be the Classic Rabbit Vibrator from the Rabbit Company, of course!
Buzzcocks, “Orgasm Addict” – Bullet Vibrator
“Well you tried it just for once found it all right for kicks,
But now you found out that it's a habit that sticks,
And you're an orgasm addict, you're an orgasm addict”
With plenty more than just pop songs about masturbation, the Buzzcocks’ classic punk rock ode to the orgasm is one of our personal favorites. Uncomplicated and extremely catchy, the song careens along a road of playful sexual obsession, running to its end in a rush of glee and longing – a little bit like an orgasm itself. Bnaughty Deluxe Bullet is our pick; bullets may be petite, but they pack quite a punch, just right for any orgasm addict to keep coming back to again and again!
Janet Jackson, “If” – Multi-Sleeve Vibrator
“How many nights I’ve laid in bed excited over you
I’ve closed my eyes and thought of us
A hundred different ways
I’ve gotten there so many times”
This seductive song is all about submission to one’s sexual fantasies when getting it on solo-style. We love Janet Jackson’s “If” because it emphasizes the erotic power of the imagination; after all, she even sings that she’s gotten there a hundred different ways. That’s why we had to pair this dance-pop track with the Multi-Sleeve Vibrator Kit, which ensures at least four or five different ways all in one toy!
Prince, “Darling Nikki” – Little Book of Sex Secrets
“I knew a girl named Nikki
I guess you could say she was a sex fiend
I met her in a hotel lobby
Masturbating with a magazine
She said ‘How’d you like to waste some time?’
And I could not resist when I saw little Nikki grind”
It might just be impossible to write a list of songs about masturbation without including Prince, the master of erotic funk and R&B-tinged rock pop; here we’ve chosen a song that appears smack dab in the middle of arguably his most famous work, Purple Rain. Primal and energetic, the song was never even released as a single, but those sexy lyrics sure earned it some attention! And since our darling protagonist seems to enjoy that magazine so much, we think the Little Book of Sex Secrets is just the right pairing for Nikki.
Tori Amos, “Icicle” – Glass Dong
“And when my hand touches myself
I can finally rest my head
And when they take from his body
I think I’ll take from mine instead
Getting off, getting off while they’re all downstairs”
When it comes to songs about masturbation that you never would have known without paying attention to the words, the baroque pop rock of Tori Amos’ “Icicle” might just be the queen. This edgy song can be interpreted a few ways, but there’s no denying that the protagonist is getting off. With the title, we couldn’t help but choose an item from the Icicles line of glass toys to pair the track with; the Icicles #60 Glass Dong is as lovely to gaze upon as it is exciting to use!
Masturbation is not just for the lonely and the single; everyone masturbates! As our tiny sampling of songs about masturbation shows, many of us are listening to songs about orgasms without even realizing it, too. Next time you’re feeling frisky, perhaps put one of these tracks on and get yourself off – or put on a sexy show for your partner!
