1. Because you’ll actually remember it.
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.
S3x 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 s#x 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.
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 n@.ked, it only follows then that we should have s*x.” Wise guy.
6. You can carpool after.
Who needs to drive to work when you’re already riding dirty?
7. It’s more int1mate.
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 s*x so intimate. It’s stripped of everything — clothes, makeup, the weight of a day’s events, toothpaste, priorities — and somehow leaves you feeling fuller.
8. Because shower s*x just doesn’t cut it.
The water in your face, the slippery surfaces (especially where feet are concerned!), the soap in places that can’t support life with soap — shower s*x is like the sh*.tty water park version of inter-course you indulge in when you have nothing better to do over the summer. Morning s*x is the more fun, cooler theme park. Better than Disney.
9. It affirms that you two are still interested in each other sober.
Any sex that is not drunk and sloppy means there’s hope. When the lights are on, it’s even better getting off.
10. Because you love an excuse to gloat at work.
Coworker 1: How was your night?
You: I had amazing morning s*x. Coworker 2: I’m so stressed.
You: Morning sex could fix that. I would know. Coworker 3: Where do you want to go for lunch?
You: Some place where they sell morning s*x all day.
