When it comes to having morning sex, the early bird catches the … I’m not even gonna finish that one. We’ll stick with this: Rise and bang, y’all. There’s much more than double-shot espressos or punishing treadmill poundings waiting on the other end of an early wake-up call. Morning sex has so many perks that you’ll forget it was ever tempting to hit snooze.
For whatever reason, conventional sex culture holds a powerful association between boning and nighttime. For most people, canoodling time traditionally comes at the close of a day, when both parties are wiped out, hair askew, nerves fried. The hours before sleep usually sees us with bodies depleted of the spirit and vigor necessary to make sex anything other than relatively blah. Plus, it’s dark, so what are you even looking at right now? Often, when a workday starts winding itself down, the only thing that sounds particularly enticing is takeout and your couch. Sometimes, you can summon enthusiasm to get yourself and another person off, but liiike … shouldn’t you want it more than that? It doesn’t have to be this way, guys.
Not that I don’t get why we tend to put sexy time at the end of the day in our mental planners. It’s usually before sleep, when couples are spending any awake time in bed together. In the morning, it’s all about soaking up as many moments of sleep as possible, so there isn’t a lot of downtime before you actually have to get up. For pairs who are still dating, that mostly happens at night. But all of that aside, doesn’t it seem more logical that we would enjoy sex more if we did it during a time of day when our bodies were rested and fresh, with all of our nerves ready to do their most pleasurable jobs?
It’s time we shine some complimentary light on this hugely underrated (and underrepresented), glorious breed of getting busy. You can make yourself a morning person, despite natural tendencies telling you not to. You might as well make yourself a morning person who also scores. There is seriously no reason to stay up all night to get lucky.
