Which instrument is considered to be the most sexy? If you think of a candlelit dinner and some smooth jazz playing in the background you immediately think of a breathy, seductive saxophone. And, more often than we’d like to admit, the audience’s hearts (and other intimates) go flying towards the singers and guitarists of a band. But you can also stimulate the imagination of your listeners with the good ol’ piano, in fact, it’s been excelling in this for centuries. The piano is a gateway to emotions and there is something undeniable sexy about it and the person who plays it. Here are five reasons why this is so…
1. Your fingers know exactly which buttons to press
As a pianist you are known for being good with your hands, especially your fingers. You play like a virtuoso over the keyboard and can extract the finest nuances from your instrument. From soft to hard, from deep A to high C, you have 88 expressions of love. It starts with gentle strokes in the treble, and mysterious chords in the middle position continue to heat the mood. Your fingers seem to find the right way by themselves, and every note is like a delicate touch. Finally, your game increases into a pleasurable arpeggio, and you release your listeners with an ecstatic fortissimo that makes the room shake. There’s no question about it: You know how to tickle the ivories of emotion!
2. Your instrument is extremely well built!
Of course, other instruments have beautiful shapes, but nothing fills the imagination as much as the attractive curves of your grand piano’s wing-shaped body. It is slim, yet curvy, strong, yet fragile, reserved, yet self-confident. It has a strong backbone, nerves like steel ropes, and, in contrast to the cello, no stick in the butt. In addition, it is always well dressed and has very well-groomed teeth. The fact that it is not the most sporty instrument is forgiven, because under it’s hard shell hides a sensitive heart with many undiscovered strings. And as a bonus: If the desire overwhelms you, the strong back of your instrument is an ideal place for a hot rendezvous!
3. Knowledge makes you sexy!
While the guitarist was the star at the camp fire, you did not let yourself be dazzled by this type of quick, fleeting glory. As a pianist you started learning from the ground up: musical theory and development of your ear. You were never so promiscuous because you know that real eroticism stems from the mind. You will be rewarded for your patience: If you play modal cadences and altered scales with enthusiasm, you will have your fellow musicians wrapped around your little finger. Secretly, everyone wants to try the twelve positions of the Circle of Fifths with you, frontwards and backwards!
4. You’ve got all the hits!
While the guitarists continue to repeat “Hotel California” and “Stairway to Heaven” covers, you have a much larger repertoire full of timeless classics. You have many tricks up your sleeve and you’re able to put people into a dreamlike state, for example, when you play Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”. As a “Piano Man”/Woman you constantly have the blues, that’s just “The Way it Is”! And when your lover is around you become “The Entertainer” and you play your heart out “For Elise” and then carry her through the “Great Gate of Kiev” 😉
5. You’re always in the mood!
For other instruments it often takes forever to get tuned up and in the mood. However, with the piano, you always find the right note immediately. Well, every few months you have to get your instrument tuned, but then you are good to go for long periods of time. Endurance. While the guitarist is still picking at his strings and twiddling with his knobs in hopes that some tension will arise, you’re ready for a sensual intermezzo! You just have that real vibe – and everyone wants a piece!
