6 Reasons To Have Sex Before Work, Because You Deserve To Start Your Day Off With A Bang
Even those of us who have jobs we love, sometimes cringe at the thought of going into work. It's so much easier to stare at the wall and repeat, “I just don’t want to go to work today," then to actually find the necessary motivation to just get your ass in there and get your shift over with. But what if you could some how make going into your job more bearable? Like maybe setting aside time to have sex before you go to work every day? Do you think that maybe then you wouldn't dread it so much? I'm no scientist, but I always find everything is so much better have I have an orgasm.
Studies have found time and time again that having sex before work in the morning is one of the best things you can do for not just yourself, but your relationship. However, not everyone goes to work in the morning. Some people roll into work about 6 p.m. and work until 4 a.m., slinging drinks for drunkards who, by 2 a.m., are brazen enough to ask for a free round of shots. The thought of that possible situation right there calls for a proper pre-work sex fest, to take the edge off of that impending douchery.
Whether you’re a bartender who works until closing time, an executive at Morgan Stanley who goes in at 6 a.m., or a blogger for lady sites who doesn’t start writing until midnight, here are six reasons to have sex before work.
1. It Puts You In A Good Mood
After people have sex, they get a bit of a bounce in their step. They’re feeling good and they’re feeling happy thanks to all that oxytocin that was released. Suddenly dealing with a cranky boss and a bunch of dim-witted coworkers doesn’t seem so bad.
2. It Relieves Stress
If you’re freaking out about a big presentation or you’re anxiety-ridden because you haven’t had a vacation in a year, sex can help calm you the eff down. The delightful combination of dopamine, endorphins, and oxytocin that are released during sex, especially if you climax, not only kills the stress in your brain, but can make your body feel physically better, too.
3. It’s A Great Workout
Exercising before work is a great way to get your energy to skyrocket. I mean, why else would so many people drag themselves to the gym before heading to the office in the morning? So, if you have the choice between sweating away on the treadmill or having sex, which would you choose? Exactly. Plus, if calorie-burning is your thing, you'll burn roughly 144 calories for every half hour of sex, but you’re not going to feel guilty about skipping the gym. Again.
4. It Boosts Your Immune System
Depending on where you work, this is a big one. While someone who works from home doesn't have to deal with constantly coming into contact with germs, people who work at hospitals, schools, or anyplace where they're surround by people definitely want an edge when it comes to staying healthy. Well, that’s just another reason to have sex before work.
A 2009 study found that people who have sex regularly, at least twice a week, have stronger immune systems than those who don’t. When we have sex, antigens are released and some of those protect against the common cold and flu ― definitely something to keep in mind when November rolls around again.
5. It Makes You Hot
Not only do you get that beautiful after-sex glow and that gorgeous bed head that you just can’t seem to make happen with a brush and hairdryer, but the hormones released during sex just make you more attractive. Studies have also found that people who have sex at least three times a week look up to a decade younger than their actual age. If you have to go to work, you might as well look hot and young while doing so.
6. It's Sex
Do you really need a reason to have sex? Not really. So whether it's before work, after work, or a quickie on your lunch break, go for it. If you practice safe sex, there's just a whole boatload of health benefits that will make everything you do in life that much better... even manning the register at the local 7-11 on a Saturday night.
