It was either Friedrich Nietzsche or the Backstreet Boys that once said: 'Life without music is meaningless,' and FHM would have to agree. Especially if said music comes alongside an extremely sexy music video.
Check out our top 15 sexiest music videos ever:
N.E.R.D confess from the outset that they are ‘dirty dogs’ and we can believe it as we're treated to steamy scenes of strippers teaming up on the band. Even the government ‘are talking like strippers’. These guys clearly have lap dancers on the brain, and on other body parts too.
A lesson in seduction that we will probably never imitate. Usher lets his girl take charge whilst wearing some mighty oversized shades and jamming on a transparent piano. Smooooooth.
The archetypal raunchy vid, Christina gets down and dirty (and rather sweaty) in the boxing ring. Piercing eyes and shocking blonde dreadlocks are combined with an ability to kick ass, which she does, to some unfortunate masked beauty.
Madge looking particularly inviting in a silk slip with the sultriness turned up to eleven in this black and white epic. Throw in a body-morphing specialist with exceptionally long nails and a great deal of naughty whispering and you've got an extremely sexy shoot.
We couldn’t have compiled this list without a certain Columbian with very honest hips. Shakira (the bendiest woman in pop) inhabits a sparkly red love cave and wears a saucy dress that tricks you into thinking she’s actually starkers. Barcelona’s Gerard Pique is a very lucky man.
Rihanna emerges from the water like an Amazonian queen before transforming herself into a very sexy desert princess. We're then transported back to the 80s as she dons a wild hair-do and the room is filled with smoke for no apparent reason other than it being a bit sexy... Something for everyone.
What’s not to like about two faux Russian lesbians messing about in the pouring rain? A little creepy, what with the ‘parents’ peering through the fence at the two girls. but there’s definitely something beautiful about the inevitable kiss and the girls strolling off hand in hand at the end. Who says romance is dead, ey?
When it comes to gaudy colour, Minaj really is unparalleled. Amongst shocking pinks, yellows and baby blues, she seduces various well-built ‘American guys’ in her inimitable style. She is curvy and in-your-face, impossible to ignore.
Here is what happens when you take a pint-sized Australian with a famous derriere and wrap her in a bed sheet. Contrasted by bright red lipstick, Minogue is devastatingly attractive, teasing the camera with every shake of her cape.
A nine-and-a-half minute epic set in a women’s prison, this is Gaga at her bizarre best. Accompanied by tattoo-laden inmates, she finds herself at various points clad only in ‘Crime Scene’ tape. Luckily, Beyonce is on hand to bail her out in the Pussy Wagon from Kill Bill, where the sexy pair proceed to poison unsuspecting diners. Majorly hot femme fatale points.
The action here switches between intimate bedroom scenes and Robyn clothed in a tubed outfit meant (we think) to replicate veins in the body. Weird outfits aside though, we’re treated to a few extremely dirty moments that should be just about enough to distract your attention.
Who knew that hot women conducting DIY could be so darn sexy? This vid has the feel of a supercharged B&Q advert with a great deal of sweating, lip-licking and general waggling. You’re even provided with some handy power tool buying advice, a thoughtful touch.
Admittedly Manson’s face is consistently quite scary throughout, but he sure knows how to throw a party, one that is ‘not another high school party’. He certainly gets in on the action: boycotting the DJ and then entering the hot tub with his pick of the ladies. We also learn that he is partial to a cuddly toy, a cuddly toy wearing suspenders.
We feel your pain, Jack White. After three tantalising minutes of watching Kate Moss frolic and pole dance in her smalls, we weren’t quite sure what to do with ourselves either.
