It may seem like a strange question—and many will say when the mood is right—but when is the best time to have sex? According to research, it seems that there are better times of the day and year, and it’s not just when both couples are in the mood. Part of this depends on the outcome that you want.
The Day Before Your Period
If you want a great orgasm, the best day to have sex is the day before your period starts. This is great for women with a very regular cycle, but can cause problems for those who have no idea when they are going to see Aunt Flow.
On this day, there is more blood, which means the tissue around your genitals is more sensitive.
Christmas and New Year
Between Christmas and New Year there are fewer time constraints. You’re not worried about getting up for work the next morning, or trying to fit a quickie into the day because you’ve got lots to do.
During the holiday season, you’re both likely off work and able to enjoy the night more. You’ll also find that you have more time, unless you have children!
First Thing in the Morning
Men are naturally turned on in the morning—you’ve heard the saying of “morning wood”, right? Well, this is a great time for you to surprise your husband or boyfriend.
Wake up 10 minutes earlier and enjoy a quickie. This is also better for you since you’re refreshed after a good night’s sleep. As you get older, you’ll find that the nights are much more tiring.
During Your Period
Okay, this isn’t the best for everyone. Some men don’t like the idea of the mess while women just don’t want to do anything this time of the month. If you can both get past the idea of it, this is great for relieving pain.
In fact, whenever you have a headache or other bodily pains, sex is a great idea. The orgasm will release the right chemicals to offer natural pain relief.
When Away on Holiday
It doesn’t matter what time of year you decide to go away, this is a great time for a night of passion. If you’re away with the children, it can be hard, but there are ways to get something from your time away together.
Try to book a weekend break with just the two of you and enjoy the free time and the lack of constraints.
When It’s Planned
It may sound boring, but some couples have to plan their nights of passion. You may be busy with work or need to get the kids out of the house for a night. This is a great time for a night together, though.
You will plan it in advance, can have a night of romance, and will look forward to it during the nights running up to it. Don’t set your expectations high though; go with the flow.
