If the early bird catches the worm, then morning sex is… well, let’s just say it’s breakfast in bed. Beyond gratifying, as well as a way to get energized before your feet hit the floor, glory in the morning can set the mood for a sensational day. A morning caress becomes an innocent kiss, a gentle touch, and softly becomes more intense. Here are 10 reasons to have morning sex.
1. Morning Light
Its early morning; you are warm, cuddly and comfortable. Nighttime spooning leads to a morning caress; lips gently land on your neck, and then a hand slides south… The diffused rising sun sends faded sunbeams into the room, creating an ambience of golden hues. It is the golden hour. Skin, hair, eyes; they all appear seductive in the morning twilight. This is the moment. Capture it. Energize your upcoming day by succumbing to the power of the morning.
2. Releases Oxytocin
Oxytocin is a chemical that makes us feel euphoric. Morning sex releases oxytocin, creating a feel-good sensation that lingers throughout the day. Studies show that this chemical reaction enhances the emotional bond between couples, which is a good reason to have morning sex. The release of oxytocin triggers feelings associated with sex and your partner.
3. Heart Health
According to WebMD, “A good sex life is good for your heart. Besides being a great way to raise your heart rate, sex helps keep your estrogen and testosterone levels in balance.” Studies indicate that men who have sex at least twice a week are 50 percent less likely to die of heart disease than men who rarely have sex.
4. Get Your ZZZ’s
You and your partner are both charismatic and successful. At the end of a long work day, you are tired and wiped out, with no energy for anything else put to plop onto the pillow. Saving sex for the morning hour allows you to relax in the evening; shower, reflect, meditate, sleep. The workday is put aside. Nothing matters but the softness of your bed and the sultry feeling as you slide between the sheets. You have earned the right to a peaceful nights rest. When morning arrives, you are rested with a good night’s sleep. The kids still asleep, you are prepared to give full attention to your mate.
5. Morning Shower
There’s no better reason to slide into a morning shower. Find your favorite sensual body wash (try Gorgio Armani Body Wash). Lather, then lather some more, until you are drenched in suds. Then… well, you’ll know what to do. What a way to wake up. Life doesn’t get better.
6. Power Play
Sometimes work can…suck. Well, you know, some days can be intense. Sex in the morning is empowering. It makes you feel confident and in control. You feel sexy and content. Knowing that you have had an orgasmic morning builds confidence and self-esteem throughout the day. Who needs work-place stress? Not you! You feel too confident to fall into that pitfall.
7. Wicked Workout
A morning round can be a precursor to your workout, or the morning workout. It all depends upon intensity. Soft and slow, or a rugged romp; stretching, bending, reaching, etc. You may not be in the gym, but you can really feel the burn. It all counts for exercise.
8. No Inhibitions
For some reason, we all seem more vulnerable in the morning, when we are caffeine-free, groggy, listless, and half-awake. Morning sex leaves no time for inhibitions. There is no time to be body conscious; somehow a peeling sunburn, frizzy hair, bushy eyebrows, and hairy legs just don’t seem to matter. It’s totally unobstructed, raw and wonderful.
9. Emotional Energy
Going from sleepy to sexy can be emotionally and erotically intense. Besides boosting hormones, morning sex increases blood flow, energizing neurons and other receptors. Simply stated, sex affirms emotional bonds through physical sensations. Regular sex with your partner affirms commitment.
After a good night’s sleep, the house is quiet and the day is new. The person lying beside you is soft, warm and…ready. Opportunity knocks. Answer. Open. Men usually have morning erections. Really, need I say more? Avoid all distractions, clear your mind, embrace your mate and dive into euphoria. Don’t miss the opportunity to share the essence of life; you will remember it all day, through the night, and ready to go again…
As Dr. Seuss once said, “Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.” Now you have good reason to smile throughout your day. Sex in the morning can be exhilarating, healthy and good for your relationship.
