There are some small moments in life that are really great.
Turning on the television at the exact moment Robin Williams is giving his moving “Dead Poet’s Society” speech. Unexpectedly learning that your entire purchase has been discounted 30% at checkout. Glancing down at your phone to see a surprising text from a potential mate. All these instances can make you feel like the universe is on your side. The same can go for sex — especially morning sex. TBH, there are many reasons why morning sex is the best, according to both science and experts.
In the morning haze, when you’re at your most vulnerable and still easing into the day, waking up next to your partner may give you all the warm fuzzies. Morning sex can be like eating chocolate cake for breakfast: decadent, indulgent and comforting. Plus, who doesn’t want to linger in bed just a little longer?
The benefits of morning sex extend past being in a great mood for the rest of the day. According to Dr. Debby Herbenick, an American research scientist and author of Because It Feels Good, individuals who partake in morning sex can be healthier and happier people. Your post-coital glow that others are noticing may not be totally bogus. And waking up next to your partner sure as heck beats waking up to an alarm clock.
Here are all the reasons why morning sex can be the best.
Of course, all sex — at morning, noon, or night — requires active consent and discussion of boundaries and intentions before getting it on. Whether you wake up and do the dirty between the sheets, or clean up with a steamy shower, morning sex can start the day off on the right side of the bed. As long as all parties are on the same page, there’s nothing wrong with beginning the morning with a bang.
