You probably have been wondering when is the best time to have sex. Is it better done in the morning, afternoon or night? Are there times you want to have it really and you have planned it towards the end of the day; however, you had a really nasty day at work, and you come back so exhausted?
There are nights when after a long day, all you just want is the comfort of your bed and sex probably isn’t a good idea at that time. Well, we always wish the best for you and in answer to the above question, morning time is considered the best time for sex.
Because we are humans, however, there tend to be variations concerning the time for sex between men and women. According to a research carried out, most men have been seen to tend to crave sex between the hours of 6 am and, and it is usually around 7:54AM they achieve their peak horniness while women claim always to want sex around the hours of 11PM and 2AM.
There are so many reasons why you should consider having morning sex and guess what, it also has its health benefits as well. Here are some of the reasons you may need to consider.
1. Morning sex makes you extra productive
In a recent study and survey carried out by Mattress advisor, 1000 adults who were living together with their partners were asked about their attitudes towards having sex in the morning.
Over half of the men (almost about 53% of them) said that having early morning lovemaking with their partners gave them the extra boost they needed for their day. This makes sense because when you are having sex, certain happy hormones are released such as serotonin, and endorphins.
These hormones give you extra happiness as well as a sense of fulfilment. When guys on Reddit were asked, they actually agreed. So many guys were asked why they preferred morning sex and they claimed that it always helped them improve their day.
One even claimed that getting laid in the morning helps him out of bed and makes him feel very productive; ready to take on what the day has to offer him. Isn’t that a great way to start your day?
2. Your body is ready to have it
When you wake up in the morning, your body feels refreshed and revitalised. Your organs feel renewed, and this also includes your sex organ. Asides your organs feeling revived, every morning, there is always an increase in the hormonal levels of the body.
In fact, in the morning estrogen and testosterone are said to be at their peak heights. Generally, everything in your body is controlled by hormones, and this includes your libido and sex drive.
Both estrogen and testosterone are hormones that are responsible for the libido of both women and men respectively. The higher they get, the hornier you become. So in the morning, when these hormones are at their highest, it is best to take advantage of it. Plus the fact that your organs are revitalised and reborn, it is time to make sweet love to your partner, don’t you think?
3. Your male partner will last longer
Remember when we talked about the fact that hormones are kicked up a notch in the morning, well yes this is true, and for this singular fact, the hormone named testosterone which is responsible for the sex drive in a man is at the peak.
Now imagine ladies, in the morning your man is on a high of testosterone naturally. This will help increase his libido, and he would last longer in bed.
This is not just hearsay. Research carried out by a 2007 study shows this fact, and another survey in 2000 shows that the higher the testosterone level in a man, the higher his erectile strength. So what are you ladies waiting for? Get in there in the morning.
4. The cuddle hormone is released
Are wondering which is the cuddle hormone? The cuddle hormone named oxytocin is released. Morning sex has been seen to bring most couples together in the morning as well as increase couple bonding.
While sex occurs, there is a release of the hormone named oxytocin. Oxytocin works as a chemical on the emotional part of the brain, and this part is the part that controls love and bonding.
Having sex with your partner in the morning causes hormones such as oxytocin to be released in high quantities, and this would help you and your partner to bond, and not only that, you will give him or her something to think about all through the day.
5. Sex relieves stress
Do you want an effective way to start your day and also relieve stress? Then have morning sex. It has been seen to help in so many ways. According to a survey and study carried out in 2010, it was discovered that while you are having a pleasurable activity, you are actually reducing your stress levels.
Having great morning sex can kick start your day by reducing the number of stress levels in your body to almost zero such that even after a stressful day, you probably won’t feel so bad like those who didn’t have morning sex.
6. It counts as an early morning workout too
Do you know that when you are having sex, you are burning calories? Sure, the number of calories burned might not be equivalent to the ones you will burn after running on a treadmill for an hour.
However, sex is classified as one hell of a workout too. A research carried out by Harvard medical school shows that in one minute of having sex, you burn out five calories. Now let’s do the math. Say you have sex for one hour, that is equivalent to 60 minutes, and that is about 300 calories burned.
That is equivalent to the number of calories you would burn while taking a fast walk for one hour. So let me ask you, wouldn’t you instead burn calories a fun way while having to bond with your partner?
7. It is actually good for your brain
Yes, you read right. Early morning sex is a brain booster. There are multiple studies which have been carried out to show the authenticity of this information, and they have all come back in the affirmative.
These studies have shown that when you have early morning sex, there is a release of something known as neurotransmitters as well as hormones. Neurotransmitters help boost brain development and also helps in the increase of cognitive brain function and general brain health.
8. Morning sex helps fight off diseases
Funny right? Having sex in the morning helps boost your immune system while keeping you in better shape for the day.
Think of it this way: when you have sex early in the morning, you are actually helping your body upgrade its natural defence system against bacteria, viruses and other harmful infections. This way, you can be assured of good health alongside a tremendous sexual activity.
9. You get to look younger
Morning sex can help boost your general body health and in the process, make you look younger. Experts have shown that sex is the best way to look younger and the reason is not far fetched. While having sex, hormones such as oxytocin, endorphins, and other anti-inflammatory substances are released into your body system.
According to BBC news, it was recorded that having early morning sex three times a week can make you look a lot younger than those who don’t have sex.
The bottom line we want you to understand is that there are so many reasons why we encourage you to have morning sex. Of a truth, the list is endless. You can decide to add this to your morning routine and see how it turns out for you.
