More Sleep for More (and Better) Sex!

Most of us know the feeling of being too tired for sex...except maybe my friend Elizabeth from college...who still maintains the libido of a teenage boy.

However, what you may not know is that a good night’s sleep on the regular can boost your desire for a little boom boom in the bedroom. (Not you Elizabeth...you're good.)

A 2015 study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine showed that women over the course of a two-week period were 14% more likely to engage in sexual activity after they slept just 1 additional hour. In this case, more sleep equals more sex.

Also, in this same study, more sleep was related to better genital arousal.  Hmmm...let's continue...

It connects back to hormone production. Your hormone production is at its highest when you're experiencing REM sleep — the deep sleep that’s associated with dreaming. You're able to better replenish your sex hormones — testosterone for men, estrogen for women — thanks to REM sleep.

Makes sex sense, right?

And what do you get after a rewarding romp, MORE SLEEP!

It's a vicious...and satisfying cycle.

(BTW: If you want sexier dreams, you might want to try sleeping in a different
position. A 2012 study published in the academic journal Dreaming found people who ZZZ on their stomachs are much more likely to have XXX dreams.)...just sayin'.
