Morning sex can mean a great day ahead for you
MORNING sex is the new coffee! According to research, getting busy between the sheets in the morning can be an excellent start to your day.
Studies show that sex gets the feel-good hormones pumping and puts a smile on your face, making it much easier to put up with whatever hassles your day brings.
Glen Rowan, a sexologist, says normally sex is associated with dark environments because it is considered a "scandalous" activity.
"Why do you think we drink after the sun sets? And why is happy hour always so great? It's because it's against the norm. So really we can conclude that the morning is in fact the hottest time of the day to have sex," he says.
Rowan says this probably has a lot to do with what is referred to as nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT), which causes a man without erectile dysfunction to have three to five erections as he sleeps.
"NPT is more commonly referred to as 'morning wood' or 'morning glory'. Whatever you call it, waking up with an erection is as good a reason as any to initiate a little early action."
Unfortunately, most women do not share the same enthusiasm for morning glory as they feel bedroom activity is best reserved for night time, Rowan says.
"One of the many differences between the sexuality of men and women is that men tend to enjoy morning sex.
"Who can blame women; the bad breath, the horrible body odour and general morning drowsiness are some of the morning sex turn-offs.
But here is something to cheer up the women: morning sex could mean the difference between a good day and a great day.
Studies have proven that morning sex boosts health, your looks and the relationship.
"Scientists have proven that people who start their day by having sex are all-round healthier and happier than those who don't.
"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," says Rowan.
He says morning sex can also strengthen your immune system for the day by enhancing your levels of IgA, an antibody that fights infection. And having an orgasm releases chemicals that boost levels of oestrogen, which improves the tone and texture of your skin and hair.
Tips from askmen.com on how to make her a morning-sex person:
Gently wake her
Your woman most likely does not want to be greeted immediately by your erect penis waving in her face, so take it easy. Touch her softly and slowly.
Give her little kisses all over her face and body and let your fingers play with her hair.
This sensual approach will ensure that she wakes up in a positive, loving mood and makes it much more likely that she'll take pleasure in morning sex.
Make her feel sexy
Your girl might not feel very sexy when she first wakes up, so to get her in the mood, be sure to tell her how beautiful she is, even if she's a bit of a mess. Ignore the disheveled hair, the pillow creases on her face and her less-than-pleasant morning breath, and tell her how badly you want her.
If you find it difficult to keep a straight face while telling her how hot she is first thing in the morning, try using a position that doesn't put you face to face.
Spooning her from behind is romantic and sensual, while it also conveniently allows you to avoid the misery of morning breath.
Prepare the night before
In order to avoid having to get out of bed in the morning before initiating your early loving, you should do some preparation the night before.
Keep some breath mints near the bed so you can quickly take care of your dragon breath before things start to get sexy.
Also, be sure to go to the bathroom before you go to sleep to prevent having to get up to take a leak as soon as you wake up. Don't forget to have a condom ready to go within arm's reach too.
Set your internal alarm
It's important to wake up early enough to get a little action in before either of you are due at work.
So, set your internal alarm clock to wake you up with enough time to enjoy a little morning make-out time to start your day.
It's best if you can wake up before her so you can rouse her into consciousness with your smooth moves.
Remember, you might be ready to go, but it could take a while for her to get warmed up, so factor this in when you're figuring out how much time you will need for your morning sex.
Like anything, having morning sex every single day will get old after a while, especially for your girlfriend, who typically does not peak sexually in the morning hours like you do, so be sure to mix it up and get busy at other times of the day too.
