Think morning sex is doable only on a vacation? Well, here are 10 great reasons why morning sex is one of the best ways to start your day, every day!
Sex is something most people think of as a nocturnal activity. 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 is good for your canoodling, you might have missed the fact that getting it on exclusively at night could eventually make sex boring.
The benefits of morning sex
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 It 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 a shower, anyway, so why not get a little more dirty before freshening yourselves up? [Read: 14 sexy health benefits of sleeping naked you probably had no idea about]
#2 Morning 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 Both of you will look flattering in the early morning light.
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. [Read: Lights on or off – What’s better for sex?]
#4 Morning wood: 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 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.
Aside from the drug-like high produced by orgasms, there are also physical side effects which 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. [Read: 10 really great reasons why you should have sex as often as you can]
#7 It 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.
#8 It is good 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 lost if you jog for 30 minutes. And, as we’ve emphasized five 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.

#9 It works up an appetite.
As your mom always said, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Morning sex is an exercise and appetizer rolled into one kinky burrito, allowing 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.
#10 It spices up your relationship and 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 *not to mention sober* 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?
