Why af­ter­noon is best for love

Lesotho Times - - International -

NEW YORK — The best time of day to make love is 3pm – when most of us are at work.

That’s ap­par­ently when men and women are most in tune with each other’s de­sires.

In the af­ter­noon, women have high lev­els of the hor­mone cor­ti­sol, which helps alert­ness, and are at their most en­er­getic.

Around the same time, men have el­e­vated lev­els of oe­stro­gen, mak­ing them “more emo­tion­ally present” dur­ing sex.

Hor­mone ex­pert Alisa Vitti, de­scribed 3pm as the “af­ter­noon de­light”, say­ing it was the per­fect com­pro­mise for both sexes’ sat­is­fac­tion, with men giv­ing women the “emo­tional sup­port” they crave while still get­ting plenty of en­joy­ment.

Vitti, au­thor of the hor­mone guide Wo­man­Code, said that while men sleep, they pro­duce testos­terone, a key hor­mone in sex­ual arousal and per­for­mance.

Lev­els peak in the early to mid-morn­ing, mean­ing this is the per­fect time for a man to have sex.

“Men are more in­ter­ested in ini­ti­at­ing sex dur­ing this win­dow and are more ca­pa­ble of a bet­ter sex­ual re­sponse,” she added.

How­ever, the late af­ter­noon is an­other good time for men to have sex be­cause, while their testos­terone lev­els go down, their oe­stro­gen lev­els rise.

“While this may not seem like a log­i­cal set-up for sat­is­fac­tion, given the pre­vi­ous en­dorse­ment of testos­terone, the com­bi­na­tion ac­tu­ally makes men more emo­tion­ally present dur­ing sex and bet­ter able to fo­cus on (a woman’s) needs and sat­is­fac­tion,” said Miss Vitti.

“You can see why thing.”

She also said the best time of the month to have sex was dur­ing the ten days or so af­ter ovu­la­tion, when ‘women ex­pe­ri­ence a surge in oe­stro­gen and testos­terone that causes their de­sire to sky­rocket’.

She added that at this point women “feel way more ap­pre­cia­tive of re­ceiv­ing plea­sure”.

How­ever, she said: “The best time for women to get it on, no mat­ter the phase, is mid­day to late af­ter­noon.

“This is when cor­ti­sol is still abun­dant and en­ergy is high.”

The trick to hav­ing a truly sat­is­fy­ing sex life is for part­ners to fig­ure out how to syn­chro­nise their li­bidos, said Vitti, who cal­cu­lated that the best com­pro­mise be­tween the two sexes is 3pm.

Un­for­tu­nately, be­ing at work at this time of day is likely to prove a chal­lenge for many cou­ples. Pre­vi­ous re­search has shown that the hu­man body pro­duces a surge in sex hor- mones and a rush of adrenalin first thing in the morn­ing.

Be­cause of this, sex re­searchers have sug­gested that is the best time of day to pro­cre­ate.

“In men, testos­terone lev­els peak around 7am, while you’ll both be fully rested, with height­ened senses,’ said sex ther­a­pist Suzie Hay­man, adding that women ‘tend to be more tac­tile and re­spon­sive” while wak­ing up.

In ad­di­tion, the av­er­age amount of time spent on fore­play al­most dou­bles first thing in the morn­ing, ac­cord­ing to a study from Rut­ger’s Univer­sity in the US.

This is the time when cou­ples are most likely to have or­gasms and con­ceive, ac­cord­ing to re­search from the Univer­sity of Mo­dena in Italy. — Daily Mail
