ABSTRACT Background: The human limbic system is excited by music. The nervous system sends music signals converted into neural information by inner hair cells to the primary auditory area and limbic system. This activates genes that play a role in social and cognitive function. This study aims to prove the effect of music on physiological sexual behavior. Methods: The study was conducted on adult female Rattus norvegicus rats aged 2-3 months with a body weight of about 200 grams. The rats were exposed to the sound of music which divided into soft (Javanese), medium (Balinese gamelan), and loud (Dangdut tekno) music categories. The duration of exposure for each type of music is two hours in a row for seven days. During music exposure, rats' behavior in cages was recorded using CCTV. The test carried out is a normality test using the T-test (student's t-test). Results: A comparison test between treatment groups showed that all groups did not show differences in general behavior. For sexual behavior, the normality test showed that the Balinese group was the only abnormal group. The Piano group's sexual behavior was statistically the same as the control group. Conclusion: Exposure to Balinese gamelan showed an increase in sexual activity in female rats. Balinese gamelan music shows a relationship between music and limbic system activity, which is indicated by increased activity in the estrous phase. Keywords: emotion, limbic system, music, sexual activity
