Morning sex is the BEST sex. I dare you to disagree. I mean, who doesn’t like waking up to a beautiful man and getting a little frisky before you have to ‘adult’ all day?
Our V loves it, obviously, but come to find out there are so many reasons why morning sex is even more beneficial than we could have ever imagined. Seriously, it’s like all your vitamins, your gym routine, and all the happy-boosters put together into one single activity!
That’s why NYgal is here to tell you why morning sex should be part of your daily routine.
1. A Rush of Oxytocin
Oxytocin is often referred to as the “love drug”, and for damn good reason. This neurotransmitter, in our brain, makes us feel happy! This hormone lives in the same category as serotonin and dopamine and is released from the brain’s pituitary gland, located at the base of the brain, during climax and also through simple activities such as touching and cuddling.
This, “love drug” intensifies orgasms (amen!) and also plays a major role in relationship bonding, so adding it to your daily routine will get you and your bae closer in more ways than one.
2. Swallow for No More Morning Sickness
Not everyone likes to swallow and that’s totally fine, but if you’re pregnant you may want to start!
Gordon Gallup, a SUNY-Albany psychologist, tells us “the best way to cure morning sickness when you’re pregnant is by ingesting what made you sick in the first place: semen.”
Although doctors are not prescribing this as a cure to morning sickness, some do admit it is worth a try. A little blow job for your man that solves your pregnancy woes, making your day overall better and less stressful could be just the solution you’ve been searching for.
3. Put Down the Coffee
Did you know men can actually transfer energy to their female partners through the testosterone in their semen? Seriously! Men are so sneaky.
This means, if you’re super addicted to coffee and need a little detox from it, unprotected sex with your man could be the answer! It is a literal burst of energy and better than any bougie espresso shot!
DHEA or get ready for this…dehydroepiandrosterone, is a hormone produced by your body’s adrenal glands, which are right above your kidneys. DHEA is a precursor substance that is turned into either estrogen or testosterone in the body.
Studies have shown that this miracle precursor, DHEA, improves symptoms of depression, obesity, lupus, and adrenal insufficiency. If you’re over the age of 50, DHEA also aids in improving skin, treating osteoporosis, vaginal atrophy, erectile dysfunction, and various psychological conditions.
DHEA can be found in supplement form from your local pharmacy, so it’s easy to add to your morning vitamin routine. However, getting a little action before work is a lot more fun than swallowing another horse pill.
5. Better Than Vitamin C
You overwork yourself, you drink too much, you don’t get enough sleep, and you end up getting sick. Aren’t you tired of it?
Adding morning sex to your daily routine might be the easy-peasy solution you’ve been looking for. Studies show people who have sex regularly actually have better immune systems, therefore better protecting their bodies against germs, viruses, and other intruders.
“Sexually active people take fewer sick days,” tells Yvonne K. Fulbright, Ph.D. a sexual health expert.
Sex increases IgA, or immunoglobulin A, an antibody which serves as the first level of germ defense in your body. So, instead of your morning juice from Juice Press, Joe and the Juice, or Juice Generation (take your pick) try morning sex for an immune boost.
6. Cancel That Gym Membership
This one is pretty obvious, but if you and your loved one are into to a little wild morning sex instead of the slow cuddly kind, you could potentially skip your morning gym routine.
Sex can burn major calories and depending on how long you go (or how long he can last), you could count it as your cardio for the day. Hell, if you plan it right with your partner, you could even do intervals, switching up the pace at which you perform and in turn making your heart beat faster and then slower, burning more calories.
7. Buh-Bye Anxiety
Orgasms feel amazing, obviously, but did you know that they also have ten times the anxiety-reducing effect as drugs specifically prescribed to assist with anxiety?
As women, we are planners, so if you have a big presentation at work that you’re super anxious about set your alarm, wake your partner up early and cure that anxiety with morning sex! You’ll walk into the office with a cool calm head.
Not only, do orgasms do the job of anxiety drugs, but they are also ten times more effective than Valium for pain.
So, if you are feeling sore or have a migraine, instead of putting foreign chemicals into your body, try morning sex to make your day a little less miserable. If you have chronic pain, this could be the solution you’ve been searching for! Who knew you would find it in the bedroom instead of at the pharmacy?
9. Healthy Hair and Skin
Being a physical activity, sex helps improve blood circulation, which increases the flow of oxygen to the skin.
“This boost in circulation is what brightens the complexion and gives your skin that glow,” says Dr. Joel Schlessinger, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist.
So cut out the biotin in your vitamin ritual and put away the full-coverage foundatin, because daily morning sex will make your hair, skin, and nails shiny, happy, and healthy. You’ll be glowing from the inside out!
10. Improves Fertility
It’s proven that men have higher testosterone levels in the morning. So, if you are hoping to get pregnant, it’s not a bad idea to “try” in the morning! Studies have shown that women who wish to conceive have better chances to get pregnant if they have morning sex on a consistent basis. So wake up a few minutes earlier and put your partner to work before he actually leaves for work.
11. Cramp Cure
Women often masturbate during their periods in order to relieve cramps. However, if you and your partner are comfortable with having sex during menstruation, why not have them help out a little? I mean, you do A LOT for him.
Judith Golden, a sex therapist, told Best Health magazine, “The strength and intensity of an orgasm can relieve cramps.”
Not only will morning sex help relieve cramps (which are sometimes the absolute worse in the morning), but it can also relieve other PMS symptoms such as irritability and crankiness because of the oxytocin that is released during love-making.
12. Heightens Your Senses
Sex makes us sensitive in many ways and our senses are no exception. Studies have shown that sex boosts the senses taste and smell. Playing in the sheets in the morning will make your post-booty coffee taste and smell a million times better!
13. Lowers Blood Pressure
The release of oxytocin is proven to lower blood pressure, just like any cardio activity. So, if high blood pressure is a problem for you, and perhaps your reason for exercising, consider replacing the elliptical with a good morning love-sesh!
