What Is the Best Time of Day for Sex?
The answer is to this question is obvious- anytime, although the biological differences between men and women might suggest otherwise.
Testosterone levels are a contributing factor when it comes to arousal. Unfortunately, men and women get testosterone spikes at different times of the day. It’s the difference between night and day. Men get a surge of testosterone between the hours of 6 am and 9 am in the morning, hence the raging morning erection and an appetite for sex. Women, on the other hand, have low testosterone levels in the morning which makes them less inclined to have a sneaky one before work. This perhaps makes women more inclined to have sex at the end of the day.
This seems like a cruel twist of fate or maybe mother nature is playing tricks on us, but luckily there is hope for both sexes and in this post, we give you some tips to keep the magic alive with a healthy sex life in the morning, evening and sometimes in between.
Morning Sensual Sex
Keep it Clean
Cleanliness is very important to a lot ofpeople and kissing someone with smelly breath is the last thing you really want to do early in the morning, let alone fornicate. Needless to say, cleanliness is important for morning sex to work. Try gentle touching to initiate some form of arousal and then both of you head for the shower to get clean so you can get dirty. The act of washing each other can be very arousing and this will potentially lead to morning sex.
Also, you could wake up earlier than your partner and jump in the shower, brush your teeth then jump back into bed before they wake up. This will eliminate any hygienic reason not to partake in the act.
Take Your Time
Taking your time when having sex is applicable at any time of the day. Unless of course, you are rushing home at lunch for a quickie. It’s important to start slow with some light touching and kissing which eventually builds to foreplay and sex. Complement each other on appearances and how nice it feels to be touching them. This will eliminate any body image issues and make your partner feel less inhibited in the bedroom. The less inhibited your partner feels, the more they will feel comfortable and the more unbridled fun you will both have.
Rest is Best
Getting adequate sleep is very important to maintain a healthy sex life. Your libido is one of the first things to go if you are suffering from sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation lowers your testosterone levels and leaves your hormones out of whack, resulting in a lack of sexual desire from both genders. So get rested up so you can do some serious morning exercise in the bedroom.
Sex is healthy at any time of the day- morning or evening.
Sundown Evening Sex
Anticipation is the Key
Building anticipation throughout the day is the precursor to having amazing sex in the evening. This can be done in many ways such as via text messages throughout the day or start as soon as you wake with some playful banter and touching. The anticipation of sex can give your testosterone levels a boost and by the time the evening rolls around you will be hot to trot.
Fit and Healthy for a Healthy Sex Life
Staying fit and healthy is imperative if you want to maintain a healthy sex life. Getting regular exercise balances your hormones and increases your libido. A diet consisting of healthy whole foods and cutting out processed sugary food will help you keep up the energy so you have some in reserve after work to partake in bedroom play. Exercise increases your stamina and will increase the length of sexual encounters and in turn be more pleasurable. This will positively reinforce the act and you will be more inclined to have sex more regularly.
Have Fun Together
If you’re in a long-term partnership, it’s important to keep the relationship fun. This may involve doing things on a whim, spur of the moment style. Keep your relationship spicy with random fun such as dinner dates and holidays away. This will ease the stress of day to day life. A stress-free and happy person will produce less cortisol- a chemical that unbalances your hormones and can get in the way of a healthy sex life.
There is a wealth of information and studies that confirm that sex is healthy. It’s annoying that men and women can be more inclined to be sexually aroused at different times of the day. Luckily, there are some tricks and tips to use so we can all enjoy a happy and healthy sex life with our partners. If you feel your libido is suffering or you may have an erectile dysfunction, it’s best to see your doctor immediately to get your sex life back on track.
