1. Convenience, convenience, convenience!
You’re both there entangled together in bed already, and chances are that if you’re not already naked, you’re damn close. No need for wining and dining and dancing and drinking and flirting.
2. You’re both well-rested.
Even though most people tend to have sex at night, that’s when you’re most likely to be worn out, half-awake, and agitated from a long and stressful day. But instead you’ve been dreaming all night, which is what makes morning sex so…dreamy.
3. Because he’s ready—already!
Nearly all healthy men wake up with “morning wood,” that involuntary erection that’s as hard as ivory and ready to hit all your sweet spots. And men’s bodies reach peak testosterone around 4-6AM daily, so not only will he be physically ready, he’ll be more than willing.
4. The twilight is so beautiful, it’s like a narcotic.
The “golden hour” comes but once a day—right around sunrise, and right around sunset. You’re right there between the darkness and the light, between dreamland and the harsh realities that await you in the morning. Plus, everyone looks a little better under dim lighting.
5. It’ll make you feel like an animal…in the good way.
The best thing about morning sex is that unlike most other kinds of sex, it doesn’t have to be planned. You can wake up and without saying a word you can just lie back and let nature have its way. Just turn off your higher cognitive functions and follow your primal instincts. You’re only half-awake, so your inhibitions are already lower.
6. It’s a better pick-me-up than coffee.
Coffee gives you caffeine, and all that does is give you a brief rush of energy and then a crash—and possibly even a headache. Sex releases a gorgeous cocktail of chemicals that fight off infection, increases oxygen to your brain, and floods your bloodstream with feel-good happy chemicals such as oxytocin, dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin.
7. It’s the best possible start to your day—and it will show.
That “just been fucked” look will have you smiling and glowing like an angel as you walk into the office and wonder why all the other sourpusses are so crabby.
8. It’s a workout.
No need to hit the gym or the yoga studio, because you’ve already burned a couple hundred calories, released stress, worked your muscles, broken a sweat, and are ready for the shower.
9. It saves shower time.
Instead tapping your toes and waiting for your partner to get done in the bathroom before you can feel the first warm wet blast from that shower nozzle, you both tumble into the shower together, laughing and happy and soaping each other.
10. It’s raw and messy.
Unlike a night on the town that leads to sex, you’re not all showered and primped and made up and completely antiseptic. This also means that your bodies will be absolutely throbbing with sexy pheromones. But if the only thing that’s keeping you away from having morning sex is apprehension about having to pee or—even worse—having morning breath, then pee and brush your teeth before you go to bed. Keep some mints and condoms near your bed.
Now you have no excuse to keep avoiding the ultimate form of “breakfast in bed.” So go ahead and hit that ass instead of hitting that snooze button!
