Which is Better? Morning Sex vs. Night Sex

Which is better, morning sex or night sex? If you ever find yourself in a debate on which option is superior, check out this list of pros and cons to settle it once and for all. 

Morning Sex 

White Cup Filled by Coffee


  1. You're refreshed and full of energy from your sleep
  2. You'll hopefully be in a good mood for the rest of the day
  3. If your roommates have already left for the day, you can be as loud as you want
  4. You have an excuse to be super lazy, because you just woke up and expectations are fairly low


  1. You absolutely have to get up to brush your teeth first to get rid of that morning breath
  2. Your makeup and hair is probably not done, so you may not feel as sexy
  3. If it takes a long time, you could be late to work or other daily obligations
  4. You might not want to get out of bed after
  5. You don’t get to sleep in as late


Night Sex

Four Lighted Candles


  1. Apparently, that’s when the fancy stuff happens
  2. You don’t have anywhere to be afterwards, so you have more time
  3. You can go to sleep right away 
  4. You don’t have to put on real clothes again
  5. Mood lighting is a thing, bring out all the candles


  1. You’re tired and moody after a long day
  2. You probably aren’t feeling as fresh after the aforementioned long day
  3. There are higher expectations for this time of day
  4. You can’t binge-watch Friends on Netflix instead


So if you analyze these results based on the number of pros and cons, night sex has the most pros, at 5, but overall the results are pretty equal across the board. Both options have their fair share of good qualities, and at the end of the day (or the beginning of the day) it’s really about what works for you and your partner.  And if neither of them work, try the middle ground: afternoon sex.
