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.

Morning sex is ok as long as we get to brush our teeth first. I'm not all about morning breath at all. Night sex is more for me.

I'm a newlywed...4 months...and already, sex is dwindling because my energy peaks in the morning, and my husband's energy peaks in the evening. I have a slew of sleep disorders and a stressful job; he can fall asleep (and stay asleep) the moment his head hits the pillow and he works a job where he can leave his minimal stress at work... He's about as responsive as a cadaver in the morning, and I feel like a zombie at night, only getting worse as the evening progresses. I have no idea what to do about it.
Both, but the fiance has issues feeling real pleasure in the morning - like the sensation is dulled. Morning wood does not equal being turned on, or even wanting to contemplate thinking about being turned on to have sex, haha.

while I'll take sex anytime I can get it, I prefer night time sex. I am not a morning person at all. Morning sex can be great but I still prefer nights.

I really like morning since I get all energetic, while I'm sure my boyfriend likes it better at night since it wears him out :-P

My body is still sleepy during morning sex, and I never get to enjoy it as much as I want. : ( What about afternoon sex? As a college student, I still have free afternoons that I like to enjoy with my special someone.

"Some people like morning sex better than evening sex — it's an ongoing debate that I could talk about all day long." Really? That seems extreme :) Anyway, I don't have a preference. We're on very different schedules in the AM so it doesn't happen that often but when it does I enjoy it.

I vote both ^_~ Although in the morning I have to say, I usually brush my teeth first, then hop back into bed.

Morning sex is alright because when my boyfriend wakes me up, I'm half asleep and he does most of the work. It's nice for me. I prefer the afternoon and evening only because in the mornings, I'm too sleepy to really give it my all.

Morning breath is a total turn off to me too. I prefer evening (doesn't have to be late at night), just as a wind down from the day and also after children are in bed less chance of someone knocking on the door in the middle of our time... sometimes a quickie in the afternoon is nice too though lol.

i love morning sex. although evening sex definitely does get you into a cuddly, sleepy mood, which is lovely.

I like it in the afternoon. I can't keep my eyes open in the morning and I like to look at my guy. At night other things always seem to get in the way.

I like it in the afternoon, followed by a nap. =)

I love night time doin's just because I don't have to worry about little girls wandering in!

We are not morning people :( We both wake up with JUST enough time to get ready. I don't like having to depend on it at night though because sometimes you really just are tired! That, or you end up staying up so late.

We always had "morning" Sex at 4 Am like clock work... that was the best... roll over and do it then roll over and go to sleep.... for another few hours!

morning! laying beside him all night definitely amps up the passion when you finally get all over each other.

I'll take sex regardless of time, but I just have to say that morning sex is simply the best way to begin a day.
