The Best Time of Day to, ‘Get Down and Dirty’ Revealed

Stephen J. Winters at the University of Louisville has created a bar chart which shows your testosterone levels change throughout the day, resulting in the best time to have sex.

The chart maps mens’ average fluctuations in testosterone levels over a 24-hour period. It explains the “morning glory” phenomenon and also why sexperts believe the morning is the best time to enjoy a quickie.

When a man has higher testosterone and is well-rested, he has more energy meaning that he’ll be able to last longer in bed naturally.

Sexual health and wellbeing expert Samantha Evans has said that several minutes of morning sex can also keep you looking younger and improve your mood for the rest of the day.


Samantha said: “Men accumulate testosterone as they sleep and from the time they wake up, they have a three hour window when they are brimming with testosterone.

“That early morning erection is not called ‘morning wood’ or ‘morning glory’ for nothing.

"Whatever it is called, having an erection on waking up is as good a reason as any to initiate a little morning sex.”

Meanwhile, if you’re someone who enjoys an afternoon delight, it might be because you get a surge of testosterone at around 1pm.

It also explains why you might experience an unwanted or random erection at this time of day. On the other hand a guy’s testosterone level plunges between 8pm and 10pm.

Low testosterone and erectile dysfunction (ED) go hand-in-hand so if you already find it difficult to get it up, then it might be better to avoid this window.
