Hello, and welcome to LifeStyles of Love. This is a series of playlists designed for moments of intimacy with friends and lovers alike, curated by artists we love. If the title didn’t wink at enough, this is a project with LifeStyles: makers of condoms since 1905. Last week Oscar Key Sung shared a low-key, gentle collection of love songs which you can listen to here. This week, Kira Puru is cranking it up a notch.
Hi Kira! Thank you for taking the time so talk about sexuality. Can you talk me through the idea behind this mix. Where do you imagine it being played?
I made a lap dance playlist! Foreplay is an important part of sex for many folks. If you’re single and dating, it’s is a great time for internal conversations about consent and boundaries to happen, or allow the nerves to settle and the body to prep for whatever comes next. If you’re in a long-term relationship then it’s great for experimenting and trying new things. Lap dances can cover a lot of ground here, from the humorous and ice-breaking to the deeply sensual. I imagine this playlist happening somewhere cosy after a nice dinner date, a few wines in.
