Are you a fan of morning sex? Want to kick start your day feeling healthy and positive? Perhaps you feel it’s when you’re the most energetic or you just like having sex at that time of the day. You are in for some good news and scientific backing.


Just look no further than the bedroom. A recent survey revealed that the best time to enjoy intimacy is early morning or at 7.30am, to be precise. So, shuffle around your workout or running schedule, and start your day with some intimate time with your partner. Apparently, adults who make love first thing in the morning apparently not only feel more upbeat for the rest if the day, but also benefit from a stringer immune system. The study suggests that adults who begin their day this way are healthier and happier than those who simply opt for a cup of tea and some toast before heading out of the door. Not only does it make them less likely to catch a cold or flu, it can also improve the quality of their hair, skin and nails.


‘’having sex in the morning releases the feel-good chemical oxytocin, which makes couples feel loving and bonded all day long. It makes you stronger and more beautiful too: morning sex can strengthen your immune system for the day by enhancing your levels of IgA, an antibody that protects against infection’’ an American research scientist and sex advice columnist said


Morning sex also releases chemicals that boost levels of oestrogen, which improves the tone and texture of your skin and hair. Other studies suggest that the benefits of morning sex do not end there. A study at Queens University found that having sex three times a week could halve the risk of heart attack or stroke. Research also revealed that men who kept up a regular sex life in their 50s were also at lower risk of developing prostate cancer.


Researchers worked out the optimum time to do popular activities, and suggested that sex is best done first thing in the morning because energy levels are highest, and the hormones that make us feel good throughout the day are surging. This has been hailed as perquisite for making love. The study asserted that sex is best around 45 minutes after you wake up. It showed that both genders are at peak stamina levels after a good night’s rest.


Male testosterone levels peak in the morning, meaning they last longer in bed. Additionally, the rush of endorphins sparked by sex lowers your blood pressure and stress levels and makes you feel upbeat for the rest of the day. So find some time for a quick shower, though, before you set a more romantic mood. Researchers said this time is also perfect as couples are most likely to reach orgasm.


A recent study published in the British Medical Journal found that sunlight boosts testosterone by stimulating the hypothalamus- part of the brain responsible for hormones. ‘’our body clock dictates our circadian rhythms which govern our mood and energy levels’’ the researchers added. Even before a man has opened his eyes in the morning, his level of testosterone is at its peak- between 25 per cent to 50 per cent more than at any other time of the day.


‘’the raised levels in the morning mean most men will wake up two to three times a week with erections. As the day goes on, men will keep steadily making testosterone as the hormone is also needed to trigger muscle growth and sperm production’’ researchers said.
However, men and women want sex at completely different times of the day. According to a new survey, women like to get intimate with their partners at 11.21 pm, right before going to sleep, whereas men usually like to get frisky in the morning, at 730 am,, to be exact. The survey conducted by a sex toy brand Lovehoney examined 2.3 thousand people and observed that 78 per cent of men and 69 per cent of women desire sex at different times of the day.


The research found that 28 per cent of men want to go between the sheets in the morning between 6 am and 9 am, making 7.30 am as the most popular time, but only 11 per cent of women want to have sex in the morning as ideally women’s desire levels rise through the day and reach their peak between 11 pm and 2 am; interestingly though, evenings are appropriate for only 16 per cent of men.


Co-owner of Lovehoney said that different sex drives have been observed between men and women, but most people tend to find sexual happiness in the end with a partner with similar needs. Ok in other news, we keep hearing marriage jokes at family gatherings parties, on Whatsapp, basically everywhere. But for a moment let’s talk about one of the things where marriage trumps the rest- married sex!


Married sex means that you get the sex without going through the painful process of overpriced drinks, cheesy pick-up lines and high heels. In other words, all those on dating or hook-up apps should be jealous of married couples and their sex lives! First of all, expert knowledge on each other’s bodies. You know where your hands should go and where they shouldn’t. Your better half knows what you prefer in bed, and what you’d rather avoid.


Also, scheduled sex. Expert knowledge about each other also means that you can schedule when you want to have sex even at the last minute and actually do it. A quickie when you feel like it lets you get intimate and at the same time not waste a full 45 minutes for the act, especially when you need to get up early for office the next morning! Sex right after the matinee show on Sunday? Done! Don’t be late!


There is no need to be afraid again while having sex! Trying and miserably failing at a new sex position or farting by mistake during all that twisting and turning can be a secret joke between the both of you for the next few weeks. One of the best things about married sex? You would not be thinking does he or she really like me? Will they call back? Should I leave in the morning? And oh, married sex is actually the time you get to say goodbye o herpes, crabs and other deadly and familiar venereal diseases.


One other thing great about married sex is arriving on time. We are not saying this will happen every time, but at least the more you sleep with your partner, you get better at recognizing each other’s timing and pace and hence you orgasm together more often. Also, you keep getting better. Don’t they say practice makes perfect? Well, then you can certainly get better since you are having sex with the same person.
