Often, as relationships increase in length, the romance and sensuality become overshadowed by other life demands, like work, children, never ending errands, household responsibilities, among other responsibilities. As such, the sense of connectedness in the bedroom often dwindles, especially as both partners age, leading to a decrease in hormones, and subsequently, sex drive. Often, by the end of the day, you’re both exhausted and physical intimacy is then off the table.

While romance is typically considered a nighttime affair, based on your lifestyle, and how tired you are at the end of the day, has that been working for you? In most cases, the answer is no.

The morning, though not romanticized as a peak time for passionate rendezvous, is biologically and practically a great alternative to consider. Sexual relations do not always need to occur at night, just as high tea doesn’t always have to refer to 4 o’clock tea at the Plaza. Morning is great for high T, T for testosterone, in both men and women in the morning, which means higher sex drive and increased vulnerability to arousal for both partners. So, with that said—this is the best chance for sexual encounter for both partners! Set that alarm earlier than the kids’ and bring sensuality back into your relationship to start your day!
