Religiously known as the day of rest, Sunday is anything but for the majority of couples. That’s according to a new study that is reporting that, out of all the days of the week, many couples agree that 9 a.m. on Sunday is the perfect time to get it on.
Commissioned by Superdrug, the responses of more than 2,000 participants also note that in general, Saturdays are more popular than any other day (note: there’s a difference between a popular time and the perfect time), accounting for three of the top fives days to have sex. Overall, before noon and before bedtime are the most popular hours.
For those unaware, morning sex has its share of benefits. Research has shown time and time again that morning sex acts similarly to a daily vitamin, strengthening your immune system by boosting levels of IgA, an antibody that protects your body against infection. In addition to fending off sickness, those who opt for morning sex also experience a closer bond with their partner throughout the day due to oxytocin flooding the brain.
