Anyone who’s spent a weekend spinning Sade with their S.O. knows how music sets the mood. Now there’s Sonos-sponsored science to back it up.
The wireless audio company partnered with Apple to track 31 families in a two-week study. For one week, participants listened to any music they wanted, wherever they wanted. The following week, they went without music entirely. All participants completed a mood survey at the end of the study.
Results showed that couples had 67 percent more sex when music was part of their daily lives. They also reported being happier overall.
Romance wasn’t the only factor in bringing on good feelings — 58 percent of participants reported their food tasted better when they paired music with meals. That might be the best reason ever to skip cooking class and sign up for a session at The Foxgrove.
