As my husband and I have gotten older, we have to come to appreciate mornings more and more. After a good night’s sleep, some of the aches and pains have receded out of consciousness and our bodies are rested. We are both relaxed, the hormones are surging, and I have slowed down enough to put my “to do list” on the back burner for a while. As I have matured and gained confidence, I have learned to appreciate seeing each other in the light of day and savoring those images. So consider taking advantage of morning sex and see what a difference it can make.
At the age of 50, I already have a collection of creaks and groans that my body makes after a full day of work. I have a hip that is in the beginning stages of arthritis, wrists that can inflame with carpal tunnel and a vagina that is becoming more and more temperamental. But after a good night’s sleep, my body usually resets and feels pretty good. I love to have the freedom to move like I want to during sex and straddle my husband, or throw my legs up. Take advantage of mornings when your body is at its best.
Men’s testosterone is at the highest level first thing in the morning. Most husbands love to have morning sex, probably because it is not unusual to wake up with an erection. Their first thought of the day is, “that feels good”, while our first thought is our “to do list”. For me, one of the perks of getting older has been learning how to relax. While I used to jump start to my project for the day, I am now happy to lounge in bed and enjoy a little morning sex. And as a side note – if you are worried about your breath, or need to go to the bathroom – don’t lay there and worry about it. Just take two minutes to do what you need to and then climb back in bed.
The last reason I enjoy morning sex is I love having sex when I can see. There is a reason that people watch pornography – it is erotic and powerful to watch this thing called sex. Why not reclaim the power of visual stimulation and harness it towards your own marriage. I love to watch my husband and am amazed at the body God gave him. I love to watch the two of us become one as our bodies fit together like a glove. As I have gained confidence and learned to love my body. I am in awe of the way God created me and I love to watch my husband enjoying me. Natural morning light is a wonderful way to drink each other in and imbibe fully.
Morning sex is a great treat for those of us that have slowed down a little bit. Take advantage of fresh bodies that feel rested, hormones surging, and natural erections. Enjoy a visual treat of natural light and have a beautiful morning,
