Why Men Want Sex In The Morning and Women at Night – Study

Posted in: , , ,

A recent study notes that a man’s level of sex hormones is at the highest when he wakes up while a woman’s is at the lowest and this explains the difference in when both genders want sex. Notably, higher testosterone levels equals higher sex drive. Even though both men and women have testosterone, it is more present in men, known as the sex drive or male hormone.

One of the researchers, Ashley Grossman, a professor of neuroendocrinology at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, said even before a man opens his eyes in the morning, his level of testosterone is at its peak – between 25 per cent and 50 per cent – more than at any other time of the day.

He explained that the pituitary gland in a man’s brain – which governs the production of the male sex hormone – has been switched on in the night and its levels have been rising steadily until dawn.
