Why Everyone Should Get It On in the Morning

After talking to my friend about his latest foray into the dating world – and his love for early morning sex – I started thinking.

Not that it takes much to get me thinking about sex. Since I am not having any. And everywhere I look it seems that people are having it. All. The. Time.

I remember the first time I ever had an early morning romp. I climbed into bed with my then boyfriend, set the alarm for class the following morning, and fell asleep. I was awoken the following morning not by my alarm clock, but by a very delicious nibbling on my ear. Followed by an even more delicious round of sex that may have acted as the alarm clock for the rest of my (8) roommates.

Then I ate 2 bowls of cereal, a few waffles and grabbed a bag of pretzels on my way to class. And it all tasted so good. In fact, everything was so much better that morning: the birds were singing, the sun was shining, and I was in a great mood. Even with 3 straight hours of lecture and a night of paper writing at the library ahead of me.

Other people noticed the difference, too:

“How many cups of coffee have you had this morning?â€?
“Why are you so chipper today?â€?
“Are you high? How did you just put away that entire bag of pretzels in 10 minutes!?â€?

And then I realized just how amazing early morning sex really was (minus the insane increase of caloric intake due to the early morning boost to my metabolism).

Unlike late night sex – which is not only expected but rather ordinary – getting it on in the morning is exciting and exhilarating. Besides feeling (SO) good, sex releases oodles of endorphins that make feel great from the inside out, naturally. And releasing those bad boys in the morning makes for one full day of greatness.

Morning sex also gives you something to day dream about in class, something to boost your sex-tabulism for much more/better sex later in the day, a reason to wake up in the morning, and a much better alarm clock than those annoying radio talk show hosts.

And even though I may have complained about all the time being in a relationship takes up, early morning sex is definitely a valid reason to miss that coveted early morning trip to the gym. If you do it right, it actually makes that trip unnecessary.
