AM Sex Tips: Making the Most of Morning Wood
When a man is ready to rise and shine, he usually isn’t the only one who’s up and at ’em. “Morning wood,” or an erection that is present when one awakens, is a very common occurrence and is a sign of good penis health. Experts know that morning is, for many men, the time when they are biologically most ready for sex, so indulging that morning erection makes sense. Of course, sometimes a man needs to take a few steps to prepare for a.m. activities. The sex tips below can help make morning sex both more likely and more enjoyable.
Allow enough time. On weekends, it’s usually easy to accommodate wake-up sex, but weekdays can be more challenging. Therefore, it’s wise to wake up early enough to make sure there’s time for some relaxed coupling. How much time? That depends on the couple. Many enjoy a “quickie” and may find five minutes sufficient; others may want 30 or 40 minutes (or more) in order to properly enjoy some foreplay, a relaxed penetrative period and some post-coupling together time.
Watch the breath. Probably the biggest negative associated with having sex just after awakening is that dreaded morning breath. Couples should definitely have a plan for conquering this obstacle. Many people need to urinate upon first awakening, so they can quickly brush their teeth at the same time. But for those who wake up and want to get right down to business, keeping some breath mints or mouthwash and a “spit cup” on the nightstand is a must.
Be clean. Since there’s likely no time for a shower before beginning the morning festivities, men should take a shower the night before. Those men whose bodies tend to attract odor easily should keep some deodorant and/or cologne nearby for a quick application upon waking. Many women find a guy’s “bed head” – that messy I-just-woke-up look – sexy, but if it goes from messy to rat’s nest-y, run a brush through it a couple of times.
Warm her up. Guys may wake up with an erection that is raring to go, but that doesn’t mean their lady friend is in quite as advanced a state of receptivity. It often helps to take the time to gently awaken the special woman, perhaps by whispering arousing sentiments into her ear while putting one’s arms around her for a warm hug.
Make the most of foreplay. Unless a quickie is on the menu, start by sensually removing her nightclothes and any undergarments she may be wearing. Take time doing this and be sure to express appreciation for the body that lies underneath these clothes. Spend time exploring all of her erogenous zones, and don’t be limited to using hands. A man should let his mouth, his feet, his legs and his penis caress his partner’s body as he seeks to stoke her sexual fires.
Know one’s (time) limit. Sex before work can put a big smile on the faces of both partners. But if there’s concern about taking too long and being late to work, it can make one or both partners too anxious to really enjoy the sex. If this is potentially the case, the couple needs to enter into it with the agreement that, as much as they might like to stay in bed for hours, they will stop at a certain time – even if one or both partners has not climaxed yet. After all, the goal of good sex is to enjoy the experience and the closeness resulting, not to focus solely on the orgasm.
