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.

Morning sex

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.

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.

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.

Wake-up sex is great exercise

Morning sex is a far better alternative than hitting the gym or the streets for a jog. Sex burns the same amount of calories if you jog for 30 minutes.

And, as we’ve emphasized many times now, you get to enjoy time with your special someone. Basically, you get some good loving, and you lose calories without having to get up and spend time outside.

It works up an appetite for breakfast

As your mom always said, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. Morning sex isn’t only fantastic, but allow you to work up an appetite for a hefty breakfast. In addition, the endorphins released by your boning session ensure that you will perceive the food as better tasting—even if you’re munching on bran cereal floating in cold milk.

It spices up your relationship and your sex life

Morning sex adds more spice to your relationship in many ways. First, knowing that you could have sex spontaneously at the start of the day suggests that there is youthful passion still burning between you. Second, starting the day with something intimate ensures that you will be on each other’s minds for the rest of the day. Third, it will serve as a welcome change of pace from your usual morning rituals of checking the mail, watching the news, and cleaning the dirty dishes from the night before. Sex … or dishes. Is there even a question?

It reduces stress

When you wake up, most people are thinking about their to-do lists already. It’s stressful to think about what lies ahead of you during the day, so a lot of people just want to hide under the covers or roll over and go back to sleep. But when you have wake-up sex, oxytocin, the bonding chemical, is released in your brain. And other than bonding, do you know what it is also good for? Reducing stress. So, before you can even start worrying about your rough day at work, you can let your orgasm and oxytocin chill you out before you start your day.

It is more intimate

Because it’s usually light outside, you have the opportunity to look at your partner’s body in more detail. Not only that, it’s a chance for you both to be more vulnerable than you would be when you have sex at night … in the dark.
