Morning Sex: Wake Up Your Relationship!

A relationship expert reveals how morning sex can rev up your love life.

As any mom who's fallen asleep mid-coitus knows, nighttime sex and extreme exhaustion don't make good bedfellows. What to do? Embrace the joys of morning sex, of course! Dr. Jane Greer, a marriage and family therapist in New York City and host of the radio show Doctor On Call, tells how.

"Women tend to have fairly rigid ideas as to what constitutes 'good' sex," says Jane Greer. "But in the same way that one coat doesn't cover all purposes -- sometimes you need a light jacket; sometimes you need a parka -- one kind of sex doesn't cover all purposes, either. The fact is, a lot of guys prefer morning sex; they even wake up with hard-ons. So if you take advantage of that occasionally, you're going to make your guy feel very happy and loved."

To embrace morning sex:

Revise your expectations. "Some women complain about the bad breath, his scratchy stubble, the absence of foreplay, the lack of romance," Greer says. "If that sounds like you, it's time to get into a new frame of mind about morning sex. Instead of thinking of it as making love, think of it as a jumpstart to your day -- an exercise that will energize you, get your juices flowing, and help you feel connected to your partner."
Plan for a quickie. "Set the alarm back by 10 to 20 minutes -- no more," advises Greer. "Knowing it's going to be fast will help you lower your expectations about the sex. Ironically, you'll be easier to satisfy -- emotionally and physically."
Change it up. "Morning sex doesn't have to happen in bed," notes Greer. "You can get into the shower with him, get busy on the kitchen table, whatever."
Jump right in. "Forget the foreplay," says Greer. "Leave the kissing for another time. If you focus on getting right into the sex, it won't seem like a chore." (Bonus: The bad-breath problem will be solved.)
Keep the good feelings going. "Morning sex gives the two of you something to be playful about for the rest of the day," says Greer. "You can give your partner a flirty phone call or send him a cheeky e-mail later on, which will enhance your intimacy even more."

What are your thoughts on morning sex?

Morning Sex is the last thing I want in the morning. I find zero appeal to it.

I try to get it when I can.

My husband and I love to do this. The kids usually don’t know, either. But sometimes when my gums have that early morning stinky grime it makes the fellatio seem more like an exercise in churning goat cheese! LOL.

My husband usually wakes up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee… but nothing wakes me up faster than a hearty motorboating to the ol’ wizzards sleeve!

If I’ve had a good night sleep and built up the supply of OJ with extra pulp, she will definitely need a parka when I spray her down with my love cannon.

Carla December 4, 2008, 9:29 PM

Ay Richard, Dios Mio! Can I haz Gobbler pulp?

Richard Gobler December 4, 2008, 9:32 PM

Si, es muy delicioso! mis gustos del semen tienen gusto de los molletes ingleses

Nothing wakes my sister up faster than some IDP.

My husband prefers that I stay asleep while he makes love to me in the morning. He’s a coroner and works late hours so I do what I can to make him happy. Is it normal for a man to want you to lay completely still during intercourse?

Morning sex is the greatest! You get to share so much before your day really begins and the stress sets in and the rest of the world puts its demands on you.
