how to have morning sex

Whether you’re a morning person or a night owl, morning sex has enough benefits to make you never want to hit the snooze button again.

By having regular sex in the morning, you can enhance your relationship and gain numerous mental and physical health benefits.

Quick FAQs

Morning sex is a good thing because it can reduce stress and increase closeness in a relationship

Couples can make morning sex happen by setting an alarm, keeping breath fresheners nearby, and getting creative by trying different positions.

Morning is arguably the best time for sex because libido-boosting hormones are at their highest, helping partners have high sexual function.

This guide will go over all the advantages of morning sex along with some essential tips on how to make it a part of your schedule.

Morning Sex Benefits

The benefits of having frequent morning sex are huge, and they range from having less stress, healthier aging, increased libido, and even lasting longer in bed.

Of course, adding sex to your morning routine is easier said than done. It may take a few weeks to make it a lasting habit. 

This is especially true for partners with different schedules, or for those who prefer staying up later.

This guide features numerous tips on how to make morning sex both feasible and pleasurable regardless of your schedule.

Plus, once you see the benefits of morning sex, you likely won’t mind waking up 15 minutes earlier to make it happen!

1. Makes Men Last Longer

Nearly 40% of men experience some form of premature ejaculation, or PE, during their lifetime. For some, it’s an occasional problem that doesn’t greatly affect their sex life. For others, it can be a chronic problem with side effects including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Dissatisfaction with their sexuality
  • Relationship difficulties

Luckily, morning sex may actually help some men last longer. Hormone levels are at their highest in the morning, which includes the libido-boosting testosterone

Some studies have found that higher testosterone can lead to harder erections and even improved sexual functioning. This may result in men lasting longer in bed.

In cases of chronic PE, men likely need stronger solutions like climax control sprays to treat the issue. Desensitizing sprays can help cure PE by temporarily desensitizing the penis to prevent overstimulation. 

The temporary desensitizing helps men gain greater control over their ejaculation and last much longer than before.

2. Releases Oxytocin

Often referred to as the “cuddle hormone” because of its bonding and nurturing effects, morning sex can be a great way to release oxytocin and get your day started off on the right foot.

With increased levels of oxytocin, partners may feel a stronger sense of togetherness throughout the day.

3. Burns Calories

While sex may not burn as many calories as lifting weights or running, it has actually been shown to burn more than you’d think!

On average, men who engaged in moderate intensity sex lost 101 calories, while women lost 69.1 calories.

Similar to an aerobic activity, sex may also increase your energy levels too.

4. Relieves Stress

Sex has been proven to reduce stress throughout your mind and body. Stress is more than just a negative feeling. 

Studies have shown that long-term stress can lead to numerous health risks from heart attacks to strokes and an overall shortened lifespan.

With morning sex, you can take your mind off everyday worries and feel more relaxed to start your day.

5. Makes You Look Younger

The cumulative effects of having morning sex can help your body to age gracefully.

One of the reasons is due to the powerful hormones and anti-inflammatory molecules released during sex that can be a great boost to your beauty and health.

These hormones, such as oxytocin and beta endorphins, can reduce stress and potentially minimize inflammation as well.

As scientists discover the many harmful effects of inflammation, whether it’s faster aging or even more susceptibility to dangerous diseases, it’s worth the effort to minimize it any way you can.

6. It Boosts the Immune System

Along with releasing vital hormones and anti-inflammatory molecules to help you look your best, morning sex can also help you feel your best by boosting your immune system.

By releasing a multitude of important hormones and molecules, your body will be better equipped to fight:

  • Common colds
  • Influenza
  • Inflammation leading to headaches and pains

Even disregarding the hormones related to sex, morning sex is a physical activity like any other which has its own immune-boosting benefits. Whether going for a walk or engaging in intercourse, physical activity has been proven to help boost immunity and health in a number of ways.

7. It’s the Best Time for the Body

As mentioned earlier, hormones are often the highest in the morning, meaning the libido will likely also be at its highest too. After a good night’s rest, energy levels are high too. These things combined help the body to operate at its best sexually.

Tips For Having More Morning Sex

Sometimes, life gets in the way and morning sex may not be possible. People have to rush out for work or sometimes just aren’t in the mood.

It’s completely normal to not have sex every single morning. However, there are some key tips that can help make morning sex a regular part of the week.

Set an Alarm Clock

Particularly for those who aren’t morning people, waking up early isn’t always easy. To help get into the habit of morning sex, partners should start setting their alarm just 15 minutes earlier than usual. This can help couples ease into things without losing too much sleep.

Freshen Your Breath in Bed

Nothing ruins the mood faster than having to go and brush your teeth. Help keep your breath fresh by leaving a glass of water and some breath mints nearby. Partners can quickly freshen up without having to disrupt the moment.

Don’t Skip Foreplay

Even if time is limited, try to engage in some foreplay to keep things romantic. It’s easy to get into the habit of quick sex in the morning, but bringing eroticism into the fold can keep things interesting and unpredictable.

Whether it’s kissing, caressing, or morning dirty talk, foreplay is one of the keys to making morning sex a long-term habit.

Shower Sex

Morning sex doesn’t have to stay in the bedroom. With shower sex, couples can fully enjoy their morning and save time when getting ready for work!

Standing Sex

Standing positions allow couples to make morning sex even more special. Try different positions in different rooms to keep things fresh and interesting.

Standing doggy style can be great in the kitchen while waiting for coffee. Make use of the cabinets, and get creative with other standing positions to make morning sex more exciting and unique.


The benefits of morning sex are vast. It can help couples increase their closeness and reduce their stress.

It may require some getting used to in the beginning, but you and your partner will likely adapt easily to the new schedule while reaping all of its benefits.

Plus, having sex in the morning doesn’t mean it has to be neglected at night. Couples can always go for another round in the evening as well!

Morning sex is a great way to spice things up, and as the research has shown, it’s well worth trying today.
