Benefits of morning sex

23 September 2014, 16:11 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - When I wake up in the morning the first thing I think of is taking a shower and having breakfast. The alarm is also set for me not to oversleep, but do not wake me up before the alarm rings unless the house is on fire. I like my sleep, who doesn’t but there is a lot to be said for those with a one track mind. If you are not in a relationship like majority of us, this will not work for you but if you are then you might as well reap the benefits.

It seems there are benefits to morning sex that we overlook.

It is a workout

Staying fit is very hard, especially when you wake up and the thought of going to the gym kills you. Most people do not have the time to get out of bed and go running especially with Nairobi traffic. You are thinking of going to work at 5am and you arrive home at 9pm in the night. But it seems you can burn those calories at home.

This early morning workout burns calories, according to the Daily Mail, an hour burns the equivalent of a 30 minute jog. In an hour men burn an average of 240 calories while women 180. That explains why people in healthy relationships also do look healthy. If you are in an unhealthy relationship, unhealthy sex life, it also shows.

Web MD on the other hand states that it burns 5 calories per minute and works out certain muscle groups. There is the plus for you.

You Glow

Some people just glow in the morning while the rest of you are grouchy and look worn down. Sex is known to release boosted levels of estrogen and testosterone which have aging benefits which keep you looking young. Estrogen on the other hand makes your hair stronger and healthier. Endorphins and DHEA from an orgasm are what give you a healthy glow as they contribute in repairing skin damage.

Immunity Boost and General Health

Morning sex increases levels of Immunoglobulin A (IgA) which helps the body fight off infection.

Orgasming produces oxytocin which lowers risk of blood pressure as well as heart problems/ attacks. Chronic pain like headaches and backaches.


Stress Reduction

Who does not want a no cost reduction in stress in their lives? Sex helps this due to the feel good hormones.
