Sex is something most people think of as a nocturnal activity, but what about morning sex? Sure, you can have sex at any point of the day, but if you think about it, most of the boning in human history was done in the darkness of night.
While the privacy and silence provided by the cover of darkness are good for your canoodling, you might have missed the fact that getting it on exclusively at night could eventually make sex boring. In that case, could a spot of wake-up sex be on the agenda, or morning sex if that sounds better to you?
For a start, aren’t you the most tired during the evening hours? That doesn’t make for explosive or exciting sexcapades! Mixing up the time of day you have sex, as well as where, could be all it takes to spice up your love life.
If you’ve never tried a spot of wake-up sex, you might find that it gives you the very best start to your day, whether you have a packed schedule or nothing to do at all. It’ll put a smile on your face if nothing else!
It will delight you to know that morning sex is not only good sex in itself, but could also help you physically and emotionally. Here are some of the reasons why you should have morning sex more often.
1. MORNING SEX IS CONVENIENT
Most of us prefer to sleep comfortably, with as little clothing as possible. Many even sleep in the nude. Morning sex is already looking great: you don’t have to take off your clothes—which is something you need to do when you have sex at another time of the day.
Waking up next to a warm, naked body does wonders to your below-the-waist appetite. A little poke with the rod while spooning is sure to get things going *with little effort* because, you know, both of you are already lying down.
Both of you are going to get in the shower, anyway, so why not get a little dirtier before freshening yourselves up?
2. WAKE-UP SEX FEELS WAY BETTER
Morning sex is better than regular sex for several reasons. First, being well-rested and mentally recharged, you will possess the stamina of a demi-god to outperform your usual night-boning self into a blissful orgasm.
Couples who do it during the night are usually tired from all the activities of the day, making their fun parts less receptive to copulation.
Second, a few minutes after waking up, your mind is still not fully conscious and aware, making you less inhibited. As a result, your morning boning session may make you more “creative” and adventurous in bed.
3. YOU’LL BOTH APPEAR FLATTERING IN THE EARLY MORNING LIGHT
Do you know that pale, hazy light that comes with the dawn—that soft light with a faint tinge of yellow? Photographers call this time of the morning the “golden hour” when the sun begins to peek over the horizon.
The golden hour light filtering in your window, and passing over half-naked bodies with pillow-tousled hair, will give you and your partner an extra boost of attraction. All the better to whet that growing sexual appetite.
4. MORNING WOOD IS NATURE’S APHRODISIAC
As you may have noticed, guys are predisposed to pitch tents in the morning. Your man always wakes up to a “cock-a-doodle-doo” because of his natural testosterone cycle. The male brain replenishes the body’s supply of testosterone every morning, making his member active during this time of the day.
This means that his sexual prowess is also in full nitro and he will, to quote Daft Punk, be “harder, better, faster, stronger” for you—in case waking up next to a guy with a raging boner is not a reason enough for some good morning sex.
5. IT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD FOR THE WHOLE DAY
The act of sex makes the human brain release serotonin and dopamine, two neurotransmitters responsible for feelings of calm and relaxation.
In addition, an orgasm produces a brain chemical called oxytocin, which is responsible for making you feel connected to your partner. This is the perfect wake-up call, especially if you’re not a morning person, as morning sex will definitely brighten up your day.
6. IT WILL MAKE YOU LOOK GOOD TOO!
Aside from the drug-like high produced by orgasms, there are also physical side effects that most people identify as “post-coital glow.”
The sex chemicals mentioned above make your hair shine, make your skin glow, and make your face and eyes relax. You can now say that morning sex is a better beauty treatment than an expensive trip to the spa.
7. WAKE-UP SEX ENHANCES BRAIN FUNCTION
Morning sex may ensure a productive day at work, as sexual activity in the morning fully wakes the brain by promoting your body’s circulation.
Increased circulation results in your brain receiving the optimal amount of oxygen and nutrients required for it to function properly. As a result, you are more alert, energetic, and creative.
