SEXUAL DESIRE: The right time for sex

As my friend's T-shirt says, 'Night time is the right time' but is it for everybody? Why is it that some of us like the morning, some the afternoons and some are strict on sex at night? An educated guess... would say that our hormones play a role (testosterone peaks in the AM for a man), what our stress levels are like (i.e. LOW during the Sunday afternoon delight) and how we feel about sex, light and ambiance (a la lights off at night).

Personally, I think it is great to know what you like and don't like but it is good to push the boundaries a little to make sure you aren't stuck in a stale mate of prescription sex. There is always a reason (read: excuse) NOT to have sex at each particular time of day but try to look at the benefits of each time...

-In the morning, our bodies are soft, relaxed and rested. Well most parts of our bodies are soft. Sex is a top way to start the day with a spring in your step and people will look at you like you know something they don't...

-In the afternoon, the light is warm, a lot of boxes have been ticked and usually there isn't heaps to do. You can take your time, you aren't too tired and it staves off having a drinky poo to relax

-In the night time, you might be wanting to get down to what matters after being a superhero all day. Mood lighting, a quiet house and a lack of stress hormones make this a hot time.

So mix it up. Meet each other in the middle and be on the lookout for your mind reverting to reasons not to have sex rather than reasons to have sex. You might just be giving yourself permission to have a little fun...
