It appears there is never a bad time to have s*x, be it in the morning, afternoon or night, and being one of the most pleasurable obligations in marriage, couples have had it at such times some people may consider ‘ungodly because God ordained it that married couples should have it though some religious says couples should abstain from it few days from fasting if they so decide to engage in more spiritual obligations like fasting.’
In as much as s*x has no definite time or venue before it can be enjoyed, findings have shown that men want it regularly in the morning, while women crave for it at night.
The question then is, why is it that men want s*x and are good to go for it first thing in the morning while the women often want to get in the mood late in the evening? In justifying their findings, some scientists attributed men’s early morning desire to two things – hormones and because it could make a day better. The result of the study was published in the Mirror UK.
It is no news that men usually wake in the morning with an erection, feeling amorous, which is occasioned by the testosterone hormone in their body, and since a hard-on is also instrumental to s*x, that pleasurable act may just be lurking in their thoughts.
The study noted that a man’s level of s*x hormones is at the highest when he wakes up while a woman’s is at the lowest. Notably, higher testosterone levels equals higher s*x drive. Even though both men and women have testosterone, it is more present in men, known as the s*x drive or male hormone.
One of the researchers, Ashley Grossman, a professor at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, said even before a man opens his eyes in the morning, his level of testosterone is at its peak – between 25 per cent and 50 per cent – more than at any other time of the day.
He explained that the pituitary gland in a man’s brain – which governs the production of the male s*x hormone – has been switched on in the night and its levels have been rising steadily until dawn.
Hence, a low levels can be linked to a lack of sleep because good sleep boosts the level of the testosterone hormone in a man’s body, which can often cause an erection and a tendency to make the men more aggressive in pursuing s*x.
“Women also make testosterone – the main s*x drive hormone – but produce a fraction of the amount and it rises by only a tiny bit overnight, and it is also kept in balance by oestrogen and progesterone.
“Men need only a normal amount of testosterone to feel like having s*x, and the raised levels in the morning means most men will wake with erections, which informs part of the reasons they want s*x then.
“Studies found that the longer and deeper a man has slept, the higher his testosterone levels and research in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows getting more than five hours’ sleep can raise the hormone levels by an extra 15 per cent,” Grossman said.
