Sure, first thing in the morning when you’re groggy and your breath smells like day old garbage may not seem like the ideal time to get down and dirty with your partner, but you’re seriously missing out. Morning sex could be just what you need to perk up your day — and your relationship as a whole.

  1. It wakes you up and gets your brain going. It’s much more enjoyable than a cup of coffee — plus, it increases the oxygen and improves blood flow throughout your body, which is just what you need before embarking on a busy day.
  2. It relieves stress. Who cares about spreadsheets or sales figures when you’re in the midst of a mind-blowing orgasm? The effect of morning sex on stress can actually last a number of days, so what are you waiting for?
  3. It boosts your immune system. Morning sex can increase levels of IgA, an antibody which can help fight against infection. Not only is morning sex fun, it’s also good for you!
  4. It burns calories. An hour of sex can burn around 200 calories, which is almost as much as a 30-minute jog or swim. So why not skip that gym session, and stay in bed instead?
  5. It’s more intimate. The lights are on, you’re not wearing makeup, and somehow it feels more special.
  6. You’re already naked. So you don’t have to waste time getting undressed. It’s a win-win situation.
  7. It’ll seriously boost your mood. A day that begins with sex is automatically going to be better than one that follows your usual routine. You’ll have a smile on your face for the rest of the day, guaranteed.
  8. It’s good to be spontaneous. Spontaneity is fun, hot, and adds a bit of romance back into your relationship, especially if you’ve been stuck in a rut of having the same types of sex over and over again.
  9. You won’t feel self-conscious. Because you’re too sleepy to care whether your stomach looks flat or your thighs are jiggling. You can just relax and succumb to the pleasure.
  10. He’ll be thinking about you all day. Whether it’s your husband of 20 years or a guy you met in the club the night before, it’s a huge confidence boost to know that a guy can’t get you off his mind.
  11. You’ll actually remember it. There are lots of dos and donts when it comes to drunk sex, but let’s face it — it happens quite often. It’s good to have sex you’ll actually remember once in a while.
  12. It’s empowering. Guys love it when a woman takes the initiative, and it can feel empowering to call the shots. Climb on top of him before his eyes are open and it just might be the exact wake-up call he’d always hoped for.
  13. You can brag about it to your friends. And watch their jealous reaction.
  14. He’ll last longer. A male’s testosterone levels are at their highest in the morning. Plus, after a good night’s sleep, your guy will be well-rested and ready for anything. This means he’ll last longer during sex, which can only be a good thing, right?
  15. You can be lazy. Why not let him do all the work? Forget about acrobatic positions — morning sex is all about keeping it casual.
  16. Because he’s already hard. It would be a shame to let a good erection go to waste.
  17. Who doesn’t want to start their day with an orgasm? Enough said.
