Women looking for a good jump-start in their sex life may want to spend more time in bed. Sleeping.
That’s the conclusion of a new study that suggests that each additional hour of sleep increases the likelihood a woman will engage in sexual activity with her partner the next day by 14%
Good sleep is important for healthy sexual desire and arousal in women, even when women are mentally and medically healthy. Women with longer average sleep duration have better genital arousal (oh yes!) than women with short sleep. Usually, it’s advisable to sleep for at least 8 hours. That’s where the good old saying comes in, early to bed, early to rise. You could add it to a long list of reasons why getting a proper amount of sleep is good for your health.
There’s more! You also get energy (You don’t want to be boring-ass girlfriend or wife), mood improvement, concentration, overall improved health and orgasmic arousal.
If there’s anything women or their partners can do to promote good sleep for one another, whether it’s helping out around the house to reduce workload, planning romantic getaways (“Dbee” alert), or just practicing good sleep hygiene, it could help protect against having problems in the bedroom.
So sleep baby, sleep!
