What a way to start your day – sex in the morning. Of course, sex right before bed at night is also great but there’s something about waking up with an erection that makes greeting a new day even better.
Sexual activity at the crack of dawn can be a healthy kick start to set the tone for the next 24 hours.
When you rise and shine for the day starting with an orgasm, you’ll leave the house feeling relaxed and ready to get the day going.
Doesn’t matter who initiates the early morning sexual interlude, once the juices are flowing, health benefits will follow. Here’s why making morning sex a regular habit is the best health routine to practice and enjoy:
- Take advantage of your testosterone levels
In early morning, men’s testosterone levels peak so use that to your advantage. While you sleep, the testosterone you’ll use for the day accumulates. That’s why early morning erections are a good and healthy sign of normal and vigorous blood levels of this male hormone. It’s also a barometer of a man’s physiological fitness indicating he has strong blood flow to his penis and a good chance his blood vessels are elastic and obstruction free.
- Activates pleasure centers in the brain
There’s a reason why men love to have sex repeatedly. Sex releases various hormones activating pleasure centers in your brain. One such hormone is prolactin that rises sharply after orgasm. So, instead of concerns or worries flooding your mind, you’ll likely think of all you want to accomplish for the day.
Oxytocin is another hormone secreted by the pituitary gland which stimulates the prostate, causes muscle contractions and sensitizes nerves. It’s also the one that makes you feel those oh-so-good intense orgasms. Nicknamed, the “cuddling hormone,” oxytocin makes you feel a strong connection and bond with your lover.
Then there are endorphins. Endorphins are a group of neurotransmitters formed within the body that bind to opiate receptor sites in your brain to naturally relieve pain. Endorphins do it all and are like the icing on the cake – they lower stress, boost confidence, produce feelings of euphoria and pleasure, and make you feel calm and relaxed, providing an overall sense of well-being. But endorphins are also released by your brain during exhilarating activities such as skydiving or a sporting event that gets your adrenaline pumping at full speed ready for morning sex.
- Boosts your immune system
Sex is like adrenaline boosting your immune system health to new heights. You’ll benefit by being better able to dodge the flu bug or to keep from catching a cold. That’s because morning sex enhances your levels of IgA, an antibody that protects against infection. IgA is present in the body in the secretion of the mucosal surfaces including tears, saliva, colostrum, genital, respiratory and gastrointestinal secretions.
The IgA antibodies in the secretions play a major role in protecting you from infections in these areas.
- You’ll wake up happy
Think about it. If you never or hardly ever have morning sex, what is there to wake up for? By having sex first thing in the morning, you’re already wide awake and energized to tackle the day head on. In addition, you’ll probably be humming a happy tune and feeling the love that always puts us in a better frame of mind.
