When we left the '90s and headed into the new millennium, we left behind some of the best songs about making love, knockin' boots, gettin' freaky, and bumpin' and grindin.' Bell Biv Devoe's "Do Me," Usher's "Nice and Slow," TLC's "Red Light Special" and Janet Jackson's "Anytime, Anyplace" are just a few of the R&B slow jam hits that come to mind. It's time to get it on 'til the break-a-dawn in a 90's swing. Let this video playlist be your inspiration.
If this isn't the quintessential 90's lovemaking R&B ballad, we don't know what is.
If you didn't have a crush on one of the brothers from H Town in the 90s you were probably still in diapers. We would have given our phone numbers to any one of these guys. "Knockin' the Boots" helped you and your baby boo start things off on a really good note.
After careful consideration we chose Ginuwine's "So Anxious" over "Pony," which always makes us snicker a little too much to get frisky. In 1999 "So Anxious" had us clocking out early, rushing home to our men to work it out.
In the '90s Adina Howard embraced her freaky side wholeheartedly. "Freak Like Me" was every nasty girl's anthem.
We can't be sure, but we think our multi-culti crush phase began with Color Me Badd. "I Wanna Sex You Up," Is the perfect prelude to "TLC's" "Ain't Too Proud to Beg."
This song basically let's you know how it's going down. "My body" is about to be "all over your body." You feel me?
To this day, this racy video has us clutching our pearls a little bit. When you're up for doing it "Anywhere," this song is probably the way to go. Follow it up with the next joint.
In the 1990's Janet Jackson oozed sex. "Anytime, Anyplace" was just one of many songs made for long, slow, sensual sessions with the sexy Timberland boots-wearing man of your dreams.
Usher was barely legal when he dropped "Nice and Slow." The lyrics showed all the ladies that this brother was ready for the grown and sexy.
When your man offers to "lick you up and down 'til you say stop," you say, "do what you gotta do, my man."
We just need a moment of silence for this song, music video and man. How could you do anything but freak after listening to D'Angelo ask you "How does it feel?" over and over again.
Bell Biv Devoe, we like your stamina. These brothers were down to do it "in the morning ... in the night ... when you wanna do me."
We love the ladies of TLC (R.I.P. Lisa "Lefteye" Lopez) because they always sang about taking charge in the bedroom. Women rule in "Red Light Special." "I'll give you the red light special," but you're not taking jack!
Another lady who knows how to take care of herself. In "It's All About Me," Mya declared to Sisqo that if anyone was getting off, it was going to be her.
Don't you just love it when your guy asks you how you want it and how you like it and then listens and does what you said? Kudos, Dru Hill!
When it's all done, your man has left your apartment and you're thinking about everything that went down, Toni Braxton's "You're Making Me High" helps you re-live every second, with a little help from your right hand, lube and some moonlighting from your vibrator.
Let's just take a moment to remember this lineup. Case, Mary J. Blige and Foxy Brown. Now that that's over -- this tune is for when you want to get closer than close. Touching, teasing, rubbing, caressing -- it's all there.
This song goes out to the lady who comes home tired and just wants her man to tend to her every desire -- from making a candlelit dinner and drawing a warm bubble bath to laying her down and making her toes curl.
And this goes out to the lady who rushes home to put it on her man -- we're talking the works!
This one is for the woman who's fed up with her man and looking to make that switch. When a man is begging just to kiss you from your head to your toes, how can you deny him?
