Sure, you'll take sex whenever (and wherever) you can get it. But there's one time of day that makes sex better: It's 3:00 in the afternoon.
In an interview with Daily Mail UK, hormone expert Alisa Vitti said that this is the time when men and women are most in tune with each other's hormones and desires.
Vitti explains that 3 p.m. represents the time when women are at their most energetic. At this time, they have high levels of the hormone cortisol, which promotes alertness. As for men, their elevated levels of estrogen at this hour make them "more emotionally present" during the deed. Translation: At this hour, the guy can give the emotional support that women crave while also benefiting from her surge of energy.
"You can see why 'afternoon delight' is a thing," Vitti said. "The combination actually makes men more emotionally present during sex and better able to focus on (a woman's) needs and satisfaction."
The only problem? Majority of sexually active men and women don't have the luxury of staying in bed until 3 p.m. to have sex. They're at work. Unless the guy and the girl work at the same place, and are brave enough to pull off a quick one in the clinic or something, the 3 p.m. thing is somewhat a pipe dream.
Vitti, who is also author of Woman Code—a book on how to maximize a woman's natural hormonal cycle—offers a practical solution if having sex at 3 p.m. is just impossible: "The trick to having a truly satisfying sex life is for partners to figure out how to synchronize their libidos."
Basically, it simply means being attuned with your partner. It's about getting to know which times of the day she's most receptive, and at which times of the day you're most, well, horny.
