Having sex before you get out of bed should be an everyday occurrence. Why is that? Because intimate sexy time as a part of your early morning routine can have real health benefits for you and your partner. So set the alarm of your clock before having breakfast to have enough time to make morning sex happen.
In case you are still distrustful about this kind of morning exercise, see what functional medicine experts and licensed sexologists say about the benefits of morning sex:
- You’ll feel more connected to your partner.
The obvious reason you should let physical intimacy happen more often is that it can have a positive impact on your relationship with your partner. Not only morning sex is a great way to prioritize your connection, no matter what else is happening that day but it’s also a perfect way to destress from the busy schedule and the general stress that overcomes other parts of your life. Don’t forget that the way you start your morning can set the vibe of the whole day, so why not fulfilling your bodily needs first thing you open your eyes?
- You’ll start the day with a burst of feel-good hormones.
During sex, oxytocin or “the love hormone” is released by your pituitary gland, increasing your bond with your partner. High levels of oxytocin are also linked to lower depression rates and higher life satisfaction. So why not taking advantage of this chemical benefit of morning sex to reduce stress and tension and reset your entire body after orgasm? Medical experts confirm that endorphins also peak during orgasm, triggering positive feelings and reducing the sensation of pain.
- Morning sex is equivalent to a light workout.
If you tend to skip your morning gym classes, morning sex can help you make up for all those exercise plans you already crushed. Studies suggest that morning sex brings the same benefits as a light workout, boosting your metabolism and alleviating stress.
- Your body is primed for morning sex.
In case you didn’t know, the estrogen and testosterone levels are very high in the morning, increasing the sexual desire and preparing your body for morning sex. So if you’re in the mood and you also have energy to make the early hours prime for sex, why not enjoying a few good sessions? In the end, your morning libido puts you in the perfect zone to make it happen.
- Morning sex often feels better.
Research has shown that in the morning women have stronger orgasms and men can have longer-lasting erections. So if your body is more primed to having great sex in the morning, why not taking advantage of this and feel better the whole day?
- Morning sex gives you a literal glow.
Sex can increase blood circulation while releasing anti-inflammatory molecules like beta-endorphins and oxytocin. These are the keys to achieving a younger look, a glowing skin and a healthy hair. More than this, morning sex can help build muscle mass and improve the bone system. Start your day with an early morning romp and let it make you feel and look good for the rest of the day.
- Morning sex relieves stress levels.
According to some scientific studies, morning sex can reduce the level of stress in the same way comfort foods does. Considering these days everyone needs to reduce stress in their lives, why not improving your mood while bonding with your partner, especially if you can save yourself from getting those extra calories in the process?
How to make morning sex happen.
If you and your partner have different schedules, you can still make time for a daily dose of morning pleasure if you communicate and do an effort together. All you have to do, besides waking up earlier is to:
- Set the intention together.
If you want to enjoy morning sex with your partner you should really tell him about your desire. By simply initiating sex, without setting together the intention for it you might risk getting disappointed in case they’re not reciprocate your desire.
- Don’t wait until you’re in the mood.
Don’t expect to be completely aroused when you wake up and ready to go. If you’re waiting for this to happen there are chances you will not have morning sex. Proactively work to get aroused by taking a few minutes to fantasize or focus on physical arousal sensations to increase your odds of having morning sex.
- Wake up your partner with a sensual massage.
If you’re in the mood but your partner isn’t, gauge her/his interest with a sensual massage that can help him/her relax and enhance the pleasure. There are so many techniques that can calm the mind and arouse the body.
- Don’t hold yourself to goals.
Understand that even if you’d love to have morning sex on a daily basis, there will also be times when your partner won’t be in the mood for this. Don’t force it and don’t feel disappointed if you’ll miss out on the morning sex. Nothing kills the desire for pleasure than thinking at sex as a goal you need to accomplish.
- Make it a quickie.
To make morning sex a sustainable daily routine, you’ll need to understand that not everything can be a marathon. Enjoy a quickie and make sure it will be one to remember. In the end it gives you the possibility to connect with your partner and share a few precious minutes together.
- Do what you need to do if you’re self-conscious.
If you have a bad morning breath and a look that you’re not so much into when you wake up, keep a few mints near the bed, use your sleeping mask as a blindfold or do it under the covers instead of faking sexy confidence.
- Sex is not the only way to get intimate with your partner.
Although morning sex is amazing, you can still enjoy the emotional benefits of bonding with your partner by hugging or cuddling. We understand that there are days when you don’t have enough time for sex so to encourage bonding you can give your significant one a 10-seconds hug. Hugs are known to reduce stress and anxiety and encourage trust in the relationship.
