A recent survey conducted by sex-toy company Lovehoney has revealed some startling facts. The survey also explains how the clock is the culprit, and literally throws you out of sync most of the time.
According to Lovehoney, men and women are horniest at totally opposite hours. Men are horny most often in the morning, while horny women feel most excited at night.
The survey polled 2,300 adults and found that nearly 70 percent of women say they’ve been with a partner whose sex drive was a major mismatch with their own and that one big factor was the timing of their turn-ons.
Men reported that they prefer to start their day off right with a little sex between 6 and 9 am while women preferred to wind down with some lovemaking between 11 pm and 2 am. Being more specific – men were horniest at 7.54 am while women are at 11.21 pm.
While you might be skeptical about their data—most people aren’t so focused on when the clock strikes sexytime — the truth is, most people have experienced a moment when your partner wanted to get busy and you were too busy to bother (or vice versa).
One can partially blame differing hormone cycles — men’s testosterone levels are highest in the morning, while women’s will increase slightly throughout the day.
However, experts claim women are particularly good at being flexible, whereas men’s desire is more direct. A woman’s sex drive can be influenced by a lot of different factors. A woman’s desire can be psychological, relational, or physical (or a combination of all three), and can change depending on what’s going on in her life at the time, experts say.
