The team at ZipHealth have compiled a study to answer the question that no one has asked, which rock and metal bands appear the most on sex playlists.

ZipHealth compiled the findings by surveying more than 1,000 people about the music they listen to (or don't) during sex. They also examined over 11,000 songs from around 150 playlists to see which songs and artists are most popular amongst sex-related playlists. From the 8 genres listed (pop, hip-hop/rap, R&B/soul, indie rock, alternative, EDM, heavy metal and classic rock) metal ranked as the No. 7 most commonly found genre in sex playlists, and classic rock came in last.

However, metal made its way into the Top 5 list of artists most frequently found in sex playlists. Deftones ranked at No. 3, following hip-hop/rap icons The Weeknd and Kanye West, and the band is the only rock or metal artist in the Top 10, we suspect Jason Hoyte has had a massive part to play in this.

We know the question you all want answered though, where does Heavy metal music rank for the average sex duration in minutes by genre listened to during sex? We’re pleased to let you know, No.4, following hip-hop/rap, classical and alternative. The findings show that people who listen to heavy metal during sex go at it for an average of 30.8 minutes. That's enough to get through all of Slayer's Reign in Blood! How good!

The results get even more specific than the preferred genre and length of time, though. Nine Inch Nails were the No. 1 artist related to the keyword BDSM, and the song "Closer" was the No. 1 song related to the keyword as well, which ultimately surprised no one in the office.
