The frequency of sex will be different for each partner. Most couples also choose to have sex at night when all activities have been completed.
But apparently, a study conducted by a company engaged in the health and welfare sector, Forza Supplements, found that the best time to have sex was in the morning or better known as morning sex, precisely at 07.30.
Citing the Insider page on Thursday (6/10/2022), researchers monitored a thousand people and reported their findings stating that the best time to have sex is 7:30 a.m., which is usually about 45 minutes after you wake up.
This is because at 07.30, a person has the highest stamina and the flow of endorphins obtained from having sex in the morning can make a better mood to go through the day.
The researchers co-founded that one of the best things couples can do to spice up their sex lives is to have sex with the lights on.
A congruent opinion was found in researchers from the University Hospital Zurich. They agree that 7:30 am is the best time to have sex. Especially if you and your partner are planning a pregnancy.
"Scientists claim that sperm have their own internal clock, and it is strongest in the morning. Sperm also have the healthiest size to fertilize an egg during March, April and May," the researchers quoted Dailymail.co.uk as saying.
The best quality of sperm is in the morning
Experts from the University Hospital Zurich analyzed sperm samples from 7,068 men, aged between 25 and 40 years. Their samples were examined in terms of sperm concentration, total sperm count, progressive motility, and morphology.
The study's lead author, Dr Brigitte Leeners, found that the quality of men's sperm varied with circadian rhythms. But the best quality of sperm is in the morning.
"Sperm collection in the morning, where sperm quality is highest and can be used to increase fertility naturally," said Brigitte.
Responding to this, the medical director of the Cube IVF fertility clinic in Prague, Dr. Hana Visnova revealed that the collection of quality sperm is indeed an important aspect, especially for any IVF procedure.
"So if we can maximize the potential of the sample, that should be encouraged. However, the evidence relating to the best time of day, or year, for this to occur is still contradictory and controversial," said Hana.
Other Benefits of Sex in the Morning
Another opinion was conveyed by the advocate and educator of disability and sexuality, Robin Wilson-Beattie. According to him, around 8 am is the time when testosterone levels are at their peak.
"For testosterone-producing men, the morning is when testosterone levels are highest, because it's made during sleep. So for some men, this means they have a better sexual response in the morning," Robin quoted Huffpost as saying.
Sex in the morning is also recommended for those of you who fall into the category of morning person. This is because energetic and enthusiastic feelings can appear and can have an impact on sex.
What's more, feel-good neurotransmitters like endorphins and dopamine are released during sex. So that this method is considered good for the mood in going through the day.
"Sex in the morning is a great way to be in a good mood and start your day off right," says sex therapist Nazanin Moali.
Weakness of Sex in the Morning
Although it is considered to have higher benefits, it cannot be denied that having sex in the morning has various disadvantages. One of them is in the morning, many people tend to be busy getting ready for activities.
The hectic schedule in the morning often makes it difficult for some people to be fully present and build a good mood for sex.
"Also, stress can cause you to struggle for sexual function. That in turn can lead to disappointment and that's not how you want to start the day," says Nazanin.
In some people, the busyness that must be done in the morning also often makes them just want to curl up in bed and go back to sleep. Not to mention, sex for some people can cause fatigue.
"For some people, orgasms and sexual activity are exhausting and they need rest and emotional care afterward. But in the morning, you may not have time to rest afterward," says Robin.
