Give it breath with your mouth; and it will discourse most eloquent music.

There’s nothing specifically erotic about this passage in the play but this sentence, out of context, has several erotic elements. Mouths, breath and music generally call to mind sensual pleasures. Eloquent music strokes the ear like a lover strokes the skin. In the right mouth, breath can be enough to stoke the amorous fires. Mouth, breath, music. Say this line right and it could be a seduction.
