Well, if you are looking for another reason to have more s*x, today is your lucky day. Other than the obvious pleasure one derives from making love, the act is also said to be beneficial to one’s health if you practice the morning sex routine.
According to research, adults who make love first thing in the morning not only feel more upbeat for the rest of the day, but also benefit from stronger immune system.
Research says adults who begin their day this way are healthier and happier than those who simply opt for a cup of tea and some toast before heading out of the door. Dr Debby Herbenick, an American research scientist and sex advice columnist, said: “Having sex in the morning releases the feel-good chemical oxytocin, which makes couples feel loving and bonded all day long.”
In his book “Because It Feels Good” he stated that sex, “makes you stronger and more beautiful”. Morning sex can strengthen your immune system for the day by enhancing your levels of an
antibody which protects against infection. It also releases chemicals that boost levels of oestrogen, which improves the tone and texture of the skin and hair.
A study at Queen’s University in Belfast, also found out that having sex three times a week could reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke, so, despite the demands of work and other activities, adults should try and find time for lovemaking whenever, they feel like.
Jane Greer, an American marital therapist, said: “Mornings are the perfect time to indulge because you’ll probably be in a rush, and the heart-pounding adrenaline of spontaneous sex will intensify the entire experience and women worried who are worried that their partner will not be willing to participate in an early morning session, may find it surprisingly easy to coax their men into a bout of passion.”
Research from Nottingham University also found that men who kept up a regular sex life in their 50s were also at lower risk of developing prostate cancer. While a 2009 study found that having sex every day improves sperm quality and could boost the chances of getting pregnant.
Well, now you know. Be sure to snag a quick one this morning before heading out. It might make you feel better!
