something i can have sensual never ending sex to.

Hi, this is the first mix-tape I’ve attempted and I thought this would be pretty simple but as I started I got kinda inspired. This mix-tape should hopefully give you a pretty well rounded experience. It starts slow and plain romantic for foreplay with some soul music. The tracks slowly get sexier until ‘Use Me’ starts and she/he knows you’re really down for some business. At that point it kicks into the tantric stuff, building throughout ‘You Look Great When I’m Fucked Up’. Shit gets kinky around the time of ‘Closer’, and finally ‘Sleep’ is there to… well, calm the weirdness of doing it to ‘Closer’. A bit of spooning can take place when ‘Sleep’ is dying down. It’s a long song.

(I usually omit the notes when they are longer than the actual tapes, but this one is adorable. Thanks for making us a mix. -t)
