The same goes for s*x. While getting laid is always good, there are some choice encounters that qualify as really, really great. In the morning haze, when you’re at your most vulnerable and still easing into the day, nothing beats the feeling of having someone next to you wrap his arms around you and make you feel wanted. Morning s*x is like eating chocolate cake for breakfast — it’s decadent, indulgent and comforting. Plus, who doesn’t want to linger in bed just a little longer? The benefits extend to more than just being uncharacteristically nice to everyone for the rest of the day. Multiple studies have shown that individuals who engage in morning s*x are healthier and happier people. Your post-coital glow that others are noticing isn’t totally bogus. Waking up to an eager partner sure as hell beats waking up to an alarm clock. Here are all the reasons morning sex is the best s*x.
This is a win for you and your girlfriends, who will appreciate the fully detailed recap later. Normally you can’t recollect anything save a few fragments, “I think it was um, good?”; “He was hot, right? You guys saw him?” But now you’ll be able to fill in all the good stuff.
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 s*x 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 s*x 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 s*x.” Wise guy.
6. You can carpool after.
