Inspired by Brian's anecdote about his friend who said The Rite Of Spring describes his sexual activity in detail.

Hah!

I'll play sincerely.

With respect to frequency: Beethoven - The Ruins of Athens

With respect to the best moments: Scriabin - The Poem of Ecstasy

With respect to the worst moments: Schubert - The Unfinished Symphony

Overall assessment: Haydn - Symphony No. 30 in C major, Hob I:30 "Hallelujah"

What is Music? How do you define it? Music is a calm moonlit night, the rustle of leaves in Summer. Music is the far off peal of bells at dusk! Music comes straight from the heart and talks only to the heart: it is Love!  --- Rachmaninoff

Inspired by the Monty Python quote "Sex sex sex, that's all they think about!" (Life of Brian, 1979), my choice is: J.S. Bach, In allen meinen Taten, BWV 97.

Witty thread.

I rather liked the character in the Benny Hill show, many decades ago who said:

'I certainly don't believe in sex before marriage and I'm none too sure about it afterwards'

"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

'The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good' (Stanley Kubrick).

“Do you believe in same sex marriage?”
“Yes indeed. I have been married for 40 years ... and the sex always the same.”

I think Varèse’s Déserts pretty much sums it up. :P

I much prefer slim women to fat women. And I do like women who choose to remove all of their body hair. As a result, I'm confused by Mussorgsky: Night on Bald Mountain.

e: which reminds me, with an unknown you should always wrap it up (serious talk: although not double wrap - because the increased friction can increase chances of the condom breaking) but wrap all the same to avoid an unwanted intimate encounter with Koechlin: Le buisson ardent.

You could try for once Ravel's Concerto for the Left Hand and pretend you were just Haydn's Il distratto;D
