Justin Bieber is top of the flops with his music named the biggest turn-off -- in the bedroom.

Songs by the Canadian star are least likely to help set an intimate mood, followed by Kanye West and Eminem, according to a survey of 2,000 people.

Jay Z, Iggy Azalea and One Direction are also among the songs not to listen to during sex.

But Rihanna’s ‘Skin’ was named the song most likely to get you in the mood, followed by Marvin Gaye’s ‘Let’s Get It On’ and Lil Wayne’s ‘Lollipop’.

Statistics show that streams of the classic ‘Let’s Get It On’ increase by a whopping 96 per on Saturdays compared to earlier in the week.

The study, commissioned by global music streaming service Deezer, also found 55 per cent believe listening to music during sex ‘improves the experience’, while a fifth say it leaves them feeling more aroused.

Eighteen per cent of blokes even believe the right music makes sex last longer, although just nine per of women agree.

Tracey Cox, international sex, body language and relationships expert, said: “Neuroscientists have found that most people respond more to a beat when it’s played by lower-pitched instruments.

“Physiologically, people’s bodies love deep bass sounds, which, if loud enough, also produces vibration, making it powerfully arousing.

“Music is a powerful, potent aphrodisiac, so I’m not surprised so many Brits find it improves their sexual experiences.”

Listening to music causes our brain to flood with dopamine, the pleasure hormone.

The same thing happens when we’re getting intimate, so it effectively puts our bodies “in the mood”.

Tracey Cox added: “There’s scientific proof that music is a mood enhancer in the bedroom - but the wrong song can have the opposite effect.”

Deezer Flow ensures there are no nasty surprises, so you can both relax and be in the moment, rather than worrying about what track is coming on next.”

The research, which also looked at Deezer’s own analytics, found that Saturday night from 10pm-midnight is the most popular time for people to jump between the bedsheets.

Rihanna’s ‘Skin’ also sees an increase of 23 per on Saturday nights compared to Mondays and Tuesdays.

In fact, streaming of all Marvin Gaye songs increase by a third on average on Saturday nights, with him being named the sexiest voice to listen to while in the bedroom.

Michael Buble, Lionel Richie, Luther Vandross and Frank Sinatra also completed the top five.

When it comes to the most popular genres to get jiggy to, pop came out on top, followed by R&B and rock, while heavy metal and rap were the biggest turn-offs.

Deezer’s Head of Editorial & Content, Roman Tagoe, said: “With over half of people claiming that music has a direct impact on sexual performance, there is clearly a natural synergy between music and sex - as both allow people to lose their inhibitions and discover feelings.

“Created by people who love music, Deezer Flow identifies and recommends music to suit your personal tastes, meaning when you’re looking to get “in the mood”, you can rely on us to get things right.”
