Why did we fall into this habit of having sex only at night? Perhaps it’s because a long, long time ago, people felt that sex was dirty and should be hidden. Just kidding: there are still very much to this day communities that, sadly, hold that belief. But sex isn’t dirty and shouldn’t be hidden! (Well, do close the blinds so the neighbors don’t report you for indecent exposure). Sex is perfectly natural, and even healthy, so maybe we should treat it as one of the many other important activities we schedule during our days, rather than just pushing it off until we’re about to fall asleep and barely feel like doing it. How many times have you played the, “Can we stay awake after two bottles of wine and a documentary to have sex?” game with your partner? And how many times have you both lost? Too many, right? My partner and I are getting more on the sex-in-the-day game plan and it’s amazing for so many reasons.


You (probably) haven’t argued yet

The longer the day drags on, the more chance there is for those silly domestic arguments you have about who left dirty dishes out, whose turn it is to take out the trash, or who needs to stay home to greet the plumber or electrician. You don’t really feel like having sex after you’ve calculated utility bills. Having sex earlier means you’re still in that playful part of the day when life hasn’t interfered with your connection yet.
