It's no secret that sex sells almost anything — but, when celebrities get involved, those sales figures are boosted even more. Music videos are often used to tell a story, short-film style — and when it's a sexy love story, things heat up pretty fast. Add to that a real life romance behind the scenes, and you'll be running for a cold shower in no time.
From Gaga to Beyoncé, here are the seven sexiest music videos featuring couples that actually were together at the time the video came out.
7. Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney
#LadyGaga and Kinney actually met on the set of Gaga's 'You and I' music video. This video has it all: sexy torture, a kiss at a crossroads, and even some mermaid sex going on. Taylor and Gaga went on to sharing a long-term relationship, and even got engaged in 2016 — but, sadly, broke things off later that year.
6. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
Although there are no mermaids in this video, Legend and Teigen do spend quite a lot of time swimming in slow motion. #JohnLegend's ultimate love anthem 'All of Me' gains a whole new meaning when you see Legend's love and devotion to his wife Chrissy in the video. Plus, as a bonus, the couple included some real footage of their wedding at the end.
5. Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
He's been voted the sexiest man alive, and she's an international supermodel, so this video was bound to be sexy before it was even filmed. In 'Animals', Adam stalks his real life wife Behati until he gets what he wants from her. Since Adam's stalker is a butcher in the video, the duo end up getting it on while bathed in oh-so-sexy blood (not judging, promise!).
4. Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova
This high-profile couple started dating back in 2001, and in that same year, Kournikova starred in Enrique's 'Escape' video. If at first it seems like the couple is at odds in the video, they soon resolve their issues by making out on a bathroom sink — in a busy nightclub, no less. If 'Escape''s steaminess is anything to go by, it's no wonder Iglesias and Kournikova are still together to this day.
3. Seal and Heidi Klum
This couple separated in 2012, but for years, they were one of the staple celeb power couples frolicking out there. In 'Secrets', Seal and his then wife Klum reenact what a lazy Sunday morning under the covers was like for them — with lots of sweet touches, loving smooches and plenty of sexy stares.
2. Britney Spears and Jason Trawick
Trawick was Britney's producer and boyfriend when this video was shot, and she wasn't ashamed to show him off. The couple played out a Bonnie and Clyde love story in Britney Spears 'Criminal' — even if their version was a little more X-rated than the original. Spears and Trawick share their love through passionate kisses, teasing touches and long, steamy showers.
1. Beyoncé and Jay Z
They're no doubt who the sexiest A-List couple is these days — especially since Brangelina is over — and in 'Partition', Beyoncé and her hubby teach us what being sexy means. Stripteasing is a big part of that concept, and Beyoncé strips and teases Jay Z in a variety of classy, cabaret style scenarios. Of course, it was all in her head, but 'Partition' is definitely the sexiest video on this list.

With Valentine's Day coming up, it's fair to say romance is clearly not dead, but these sexy couples sure had their fun in these videos. Flowers, candy and cards are all good, but one can't deny the power of a forbidden touch, a whisper in the ear and a good old fashion striptease.
