Morning Sex Is Totally Underrated & You Should Have More Of It

Most couples fall into the routine of having sex at night, right before they fall asleep. However, morning sex can be just as rewarding as nighttime sex. In fact, it might actually be better to start your day off with intercourse than to end your day with it. You’ll have to decide that for yourself, even though there are a few clearcut reasons why everyone should have more morning sex.

  1. It’ll put you in a good mood. You’ll never wake up on the wrong side of the bed again if you have sex on it. Why is that a plus? Well, if you’re in a good mood when you get to work, you’ll get more done, you’ll treat your coworkers nicely, and you’ll avoid fights. You never know, morning sex could help you get that big promotion.
  2. It’ll help wake you up. Why start your day off with a cup of coffee when you can wake up with sex? That way, you won’t be consuming unhealthy caffeine. Instead, you’ll be engaging in an activity that helps your immune system, reduces stress, and boosts happiness.
  3. It’ll make you feel beautiful. In the morning, your hair will look like a mess and your face will be free of makeup. Once you see how turned on your partner is by you in your natural state, you’ll feel more beautiful than ever. It’ll prove that you don’t need cosmetics and a mirror to look sexy.
  4. It’ll shake up your routine. You don’t want your sex life to become predictable. Once that happens, it’ll feel stale and unsatisfying. That’s why you should occasionally have morning sex if you’re used to doing it at night. It’ll give you the variety you need to keep the passion alive.
  5. It’ll give you exercise. If you have sex as soon as you wake up, you won’t have to worry about hitting the gym later. You already took care of your exercise for the day, so you don’t have anything to worry about.
  6. Your man will already be hard. You’ve heard of “morning wood,” haven’t you? Since your man is bound to wake up already in the mood for sex, you don’t have to waste your time seducing him. He’ll be ready to go as soon as you are.
  7. It’ll let you stay in bed for longer. If you’re dreading the day ahead of you, sex is the perfect excuse to stay in bed for a little longer. If your man is willing to do all of the work, then you don’t even need to move. You can stay in your sleeping position and just enjoy the ride.
  8. Your man will last longer. A man’s testosterone is highest in the morning, which means that sex will last longer than usual. If you hate how quickly your man typically finishes the job at night, then you should try sleeping with him as soon as he wakes up. It can make a world of a difference.
  9. It’ll feel more intimate. When you have sex at night, it’s pitch dark, which means you can’t see anything. However, in the morning, the light shining through your bedroom windows will help you see each other clearly. It’ll make sex feel much more intimate, because you’ll be able to look into each other’s eyes.
  10. It’ll give you something to think about. If you end up in a boring class or meeting later on in the day, at least you’ll have something nice to daydream about when you’re bored. If thinking about what you two did turns you on, then you can do it again when you get home.
