Can Music Cause Involuntary Sexual Desire?

by Teddy Ray Ruttimann

If you thought Sex On Sunday was what happened after a drunken binge at the local on Saturday night, you might be right. However, it appears that Sex on Sunday is also a band from California with an interesting claim to fame: their music has the ability to make female listeners sexually stimulated.

According to the "Thomas Allen Research Group," Sex on Sunday's song, Room 413, "Nitric Oxide Release Patterns (NORP) that activate libido in humans are identical to the beat patterns and frequencies in Sex On Sunday’s music."

"If you looked at the wave patterns on top of each other, you would be amazed. They are identical. These patterns are very specific and have powerful effects. They affect the body as profoundly as any drug. For Sex On Sunday’s music to include these so precisely is no coincidence. Believe me these patterns literally make those listening to Sex On Sunday’s music want to have sex" said the research group. "Our research found that exposing a female listener to a loop of Sex On Sunday's music produced a sexual stimulation response in virtually all females tested.”

The Thomas Allen Research Group called for the FCC and FDA to ban the music and said it was partially to blame for the recent spate of sex-related events (that never happen any other time) in Cancun and Florida.

Of course, evidence would suggest that the Thomas Allen Research Group does not actually exist and the press release is actually a product of some very witty and smart band members or publicist.

Nevertheless, being a MythBuster wanna-be I decided testing the claim myself was the only sure-fire way to find out if there is any truth behind the report.

After clearing the room and locking myself in I headed to the band's webpage, clicked play and waited. That's all I did too, because my sexual desire increased by a grand total of zero. Too much information? I agree.

Sex On Sunday's lead singer, Scott West.

The attention garnered will undoubtedly prove worthwhile for the band. Who could resist a story with wild spring break antics and banning music.

Thank you Sex on Sunday for a little bit of fun marketing.

[Ed note: Hall & Oates had a similar effect on females which most assumed was because of John's hair. NORP provides a much more realistic answer.]

Dear Teddy

FYI! The research article said to play the NORP pattern section from the exact song in a looped repetitive sequence. The effects of NORP are well documented as are FFR characteristics. The patterns in the study were female NORP, not male. If you aren't female, they would be different than sexually differentiated male NORP's which are much more steep and shorter in duration, and will not work for you. The effects of NORP in a non-looped form still make the songs more appealing and catchy, but this is because they are related to NORP. Try the exact looped section from Pair Of Angels for best results with a sexually active female and you will see NORP at its best. NORP is precise and FFR is what makes all music able to affect our physiology.

Sex On Sunday should be banned!!! Look at their website and its all females as friends. Wonder why? The FCC needs to outlaw all NORP in music.

The "Thomas Allen Research Group" is a fake. Trust me. After extensive research into this issue, I can only conclude one thing. The Thomas Allen Research Group was created by Scott West & Sex on Sunday as a publicity stunt (and not a bad one at that). There is no evidence that the bands music has ever been played on the Playboy or Maxim Sirius channels. Do the research yourself and you will not find any evidence of an actual entity or any other reference of this research group (other than what is related to the band). Every single press release issued has been posted on a free press release listing site. If you type in "Thomas Allen Research Group" the only thing that comes up are articles related to Mr. West. Every press release was written by Scott West or affiliates of Sex on Sunday. And, if "Thomas Allen" was truly trying to get this guy's music banned, why would he link Mr. West's website in the above post as it appears under "Thomas Allen". Nothing about this issue adds up. So I guess this group only cares about Mr. West? No, it's just a made up name by Mr. West to try to get himself publicity. I'm not trying to feed into that either, I just thought someone should clear that up. Go ahead and do your own reserach - you'll come to the same conclusion. If you'd like, check out his myspace page at the link above to hear his music - it's not bad at all, but base your opinion on his music alone and not these ficticious articles. There is just no way any of this information on the net is true. Thanks for your time.

Cheers Jimmy,

As Teddy pointed out in his original article, he believed it was a hoax and a fun form of music marketing. All tongue in cheek. Thus the reason we ran with it.
