I have an amazing sex life, if I do say so myself. However, I’ve always noted my boyfriend prefers sex in the morning, while I prefer to have sex right before we go to bed. Though I am always in the mood for sex, it always perplexed me that we desired sex at different times. Well, science has finally made sense of it all.
Sex toy brand Lovehoney surveyed more than 2,300 individuals. It was discovered women’s optimum time for sex is approximately 11:21 p.m., where as men desire sex roughly around 7:54 a.m. Additionally, the broader time slot for women range from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. and for men 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Only 11 percent of women desire sex in the morning. However, throughout the day women’s arousal levels are increased. As a result of the day’s stressors, men on the other hand, are less inclined to want sex. Only 16 percent of men want to have sex before bed.
The study also revealed more than half of the men reporting their sexual desire was constant, while 36 percent of women said it was affected by their mood. Sixty-eight percent of women and 63 percent of men have dated someone whose sex drive was not compatible with their own. However, most individuals tend to settle down with someone who has a compatible sex drive.
According to Daily Mail, Lovehoney co-owner Richard Longhurst said, “This shows that there are big differences in sex o'clock between the sexes. Men are ready for sex just before breakfast whereas women most want passion last thing at night.What is encouraging is that most people tend to find sexual happiness in the end with a partner with similar needs.”
Below is the breakdown of their findings on the time of day men and women most desire sex:
6 a.m. – 9 a.m. 28% 11%
9 a.m. – 1 p.m. 10% 9%
1 p.m. – 4 p.m. 5% 8%
4 p.m. – 6 p.m. 3% 4%
7 p.m. – 8 p.m. 5% 6%
8 p.m. – 9 p.m. 10% 9%
9 p.m. – 11 p.m. 18% 22%
11 p.m. – 2 a.m. 16% 25%
2 a.m. – 6 a.m. 3% 3%
