Sex Q&A: How Can We Get More in Sync?

Q.

The Nest Q&AI like to have sex at night, and she likes to do it in the morning. How can we get more in sync?

A.

Many men are nocturnal; i.e., their testosterone peaks at night so they feel horny then. Some lucky couples buck physiology and their libidos peak together, whether morning or night. Don't feel like there's something wrong if you don't both want sex at the same time. A mismatched hormonal pattern is common. You want it at night before bed, but she has a million things to do before hitting the sack? Tempt her by helping her get through her tasks, so both of you can get to bed sooner. She wants a morning man? Instead of a weekday when you've got work, she can start things up on a Sunday. Bottom line: Instead of stressing, agree to disagree. Who says lovemaking should just be in the morning or just at night? You're bound to get bored with a ho-hum pattern. Vary your lovemaking by alternating who does the initiating.
