I have decided to use January Jumpstart to help me start the year with some good habits, one of which is blogging daily, but a bonus to this is that it forces me to make time each day for a blog post, and why not first thing in the morning with coffee? I am famously not a morning person but people can change! My coffee this morning is in a big mug. It’s a South American blend, made in the french press – very strong, with the shyest blip of heavy cream.

Since this is a sex blog and not just a listen-to-me-ramble-about-not-being-a-morning-person blog I thought I’d stay on the topic of mornings and talk a bit about morning sex.

I’m not a big fan of it.

I’m not adverse to it, and I’m not one to turn it down, but it’s pretty low on my list of favourite times of day to fuck. One of the lowest, in fact. (I’m all about the mid-afternoon fuck, “skyrockets in flight, afternoon delight”, as the old song goes) I cringe in movies when a couple kisses deeply and starts having sex first thing in the morning because all I can think about is how I can’t orgasm if I have to pee and that I’d really rather kiss after brushing my teeth. Morning sex has the advantage of possibly falling back asleep right away, but if not, you’re inevitably wrenched from bed in that post-fuck glow which is never pleasant.

If I’m going to have morning sex it needs to be a swift, rough fuck in the shower. Braced against the wall or bent over the bench, (if you ever have the opportunity to have a shower with a bench in your home, take it), on tip toes being fucked or fingered into oblivion. There’s something about the risk you feel after 35 when you’re on a slippery surface, (ha! you know I’m right!) coupled with the heat and steam and the infernal wetness of a shower that makes it such a great place to start your day when there’s Big Fuck Energy around. If it’s a morning O I crave and I’m alone I might grind on a wand in bed, but I may also take a handy suction cup dildo into the shower with me …

I’m an enigma like that.

How do you like your morning sex? Alone? Slow and thorough with all the fixings? Let me know if you’re on Team Morning Shower Sex in the comments. I know I’m not alone in this!

Buy me tomorrow’s coffee and help ensure that I make it through January Jumpstart! Every coffee helps to keep the wifi on and the words flowing. Thank you for your support!
