According to a surprising survey, men and women feel sexually active at totally different times of the day. If you feel you and your partner are having less sex than you want to and don’t understand the reason… well your clock might be the one to be blamed.
According to a survey done by a sex-toy company, men and women feel horny at different hours of the day, which might be the reason behind the missed connection. To know when women and men feel the horniest, read ahead.
The survey conducted by the sex-toy company included 2,300 adults. Nearly 70 per cent women said that they have been with partners whose sex drive was a major mismatch with their own, due to different times of their turn-ons.
Time men and women feel the horniest
Men reported that they like to start their day by having sex between 6 am and 9 am, while women preferred lovemaking between 11 pm to 2 am.
To be precise, men feel horniest at 7:54 in the morning, while women at 11:21 in the night.
How can this affect your sex life?
Agree or not, we all have experienced a moment when we want to get going but our partner is too busy or vice versa. Blame this to the different hormone cycles of men and women.
Men’s testosterone levels are highest in the morning while women’s increase slightly throughout the day. Though women’s testosterone levels may vary during the day based on their menstrual cycle, being highest during the ovulation.
But different schedules and time preferences do not have to be the death blow to your sex life. Experts say, women are good at being flexible, whereas men’s desire is more direct. Women’s sex drive can be influenced by many more factors and not just time.
Women’s libido is very complex, most of it being psychological and nothing to do with their partner. It’s also about how a woman feels about herself and her sexuality. If she feels confident and sexy in herself, she would be more open to sex and likely to have a better chance at climaxing, regardless of what time it is.
Ditching the guilt about how much sex you don’t want or want is another important key to having a great sex life. Sometimes women do not feel the desire to have sex until they start foreplay with their partners. If that’s the case, do not worry about anything and enjoy the way you want to, even if it’s 12 in the noon or 11:21 at night.
