2. You’re guaranteed to wake up on the right side of the bed.
Sex in the morning gets you — and the day — off right. Researchers from the University of Cincinnati found that morning sex is a natural stress-reliever and these effects can last for at least seven days, meaning your early Monday romp could ease those Sunday Blues. Morning sex also increases levels of IgA, an antibody that helps to fight against infection, according to Dr. Debby Herbenick, an American research scientist and author of “Because It Feels Good.” It’s like taking your daily vitamins… only way more pleasurable.
3. You can skip the gym.
It’s a way better alternative to a morning workout before hopping into the shower. Scientists confirm that an hour of sex burns almost as many calories as a 30-minute jog. After an hour, men and women burn an average of 240 calories and 180 calories, respectively. While that length of straight thrusting might be wishful thinking (unless you’re of the jack-hammer variety), like any good exercise routine, at least you’ll have something to work up to.
4. Who doesn’t want to begin the day with an orgasm?
It’s like Christmas morning — there’s a package waiting for you to enjoy. And everyone scores.
5. Because your clothes are already off.
This does make for a speedier process, which is key for weekday mornings. Heed the advice of great philosopher and first man to state the obvious, Aristotle, ”If everyone is naked, it only follows then that we should have sex.” Wise guy.
6. You can carpool after.
Who needs to drive to work when you’re already riding dirty?
7. It’s more intimate.
The few minutes we have to ourselves after first opening our eyes are special. Most people who you’re in regular contact with have no idea what you look, sound, smell and feel like first thing in the morning. It’s a rare moment to others that’s all to yourself. Fill that moment in with another person and it becomes a shared secret privy to only you two. That’s what makes morning sex so intimate. It’s stripped of everything — clothes, makeup, the weight of a day’s events, toothpaste, priorities — and somehow leaves you feeling fuller.
