Sex: Morning vs. Evening

Some people like morning sex better than evening sex — it's an ongoing debate that I could talk about all day long. It all boils down to personal preference so I thought it'd be fun to list the pros and cons of each! Now these are just my opinions, so tell me what you think in the comments below. Are you more of a morning person or do you enjoy sex at night more?

Pros Cons
Morning Sex
  • It's a relaxing and fun way to wake up (so much better than an alarm clock).
  • Since your mind and body are still sleepy and dreamy, all your physical sensations will feel more intense.
  • Since it's a workout, all those released endorphins are way better than a cup of coffee!
  • Since there's not much time for foreplay, morning sex usually just ends up being a quickie, which can leave you sexually frustrated and late for work.
  • Since many women feel self-conscious about what they look like, the morning light might be a deterrent.
  • Morning breath is not the biggest turn on, at least in my book!
  • If you're not a morning person, you may be too tired and cranky to want to have sex.

OK, so what about evening sex? To see the list


Pros Cons
Evening Sex
  • It's a great way to end your day with a smile.
  • Since you don't have to get to work until the morning, you won't feel rushed.
  • Nighttime is the perfect time to light some candles and create a sexy mood.
  • All that hard work will tire you out so you can fall asleep more easily.
  • You may be too tired or stressed out from working all day to really get in the mood.
  • Sometimes getting your heart pumping can make it hard to fall asleep.
  • If your sexcapade lasts late into the night, you're sure to be exhausted the next day.
