That morning session may have a lot more benefits than you were actually aware of. Sex in the morning is a fantastic way to start off the day. Firstly, a man has a number of erections through the night – this is said to be the bodies way of keeping penile function at its very best by exercising the penis and flushing any harmful build up of toxins (much like how our award winning hydropumps function) so waking up with an erection is not only perfectly normal but also a great indication that everything is working as it should down there. So why waste it! Having sex on a morning releases feel good chemicals into our bodies, gets the heart racing and relaxes us. Did you know that sex can also help with building up your immune system? Something to consider in those winter months that may help you from catching a cold or flu. Sex can also build up your cardiovascular health and help reduce anxiety and pain. It really is a win win situation for everybody involved!
