Sex and a busy job: timing is everything

By Janna, 02.10.2023

Life can be quite hectic, especially if you have a busy job. But let’s be honest, having a good sex life with your partner is priceless. So, how can you find the time to keep the spark alive with your busy schedule? Let’s look at the logical time options for intimacy and their pros and cons.

In the morning: a horny start of the day

Starting your day with a climax or two, is downright fantastic. You can set your alarm clock 30 minutes early and enjoy an intimate moment before the hustle and bustle of the day sets in. This can be a great way to release a healthy dose of endorphins and feel energetic for the rest of the day.


  • An energetic start of your day.
  • It encourages a deeper emotional connection.
  • It boosts your mood.
  • You start your work day without stress.


  • Lack of time can be a challenge.
  • Morning breath might be a killjoy.

After work, but before dinner

For many, sex after a long workday is a way to relax and let go of the built-up work stress. It offers a well-deserved break before starting your evening routine.


  • Stress relief after a long day.
  • You have more time to relax and enjoy.
  • No full stomach, no after-dinner dip, no garlic breath.


  • Hunger! Not everyone suffers from it, but some people come home very hungry which can be pretty distracting when you’re trying to enjoy sex.
  • The risk of falling asleep after the deed.

Before sleep, going to bed together

Sex before sleep can be a wonderful way to end the day and experience a deep connection with your partner. The released oxytocin can contribute to a good night’s rest.


  • It can help you sleep better.
  • It creates a relaxing atmosphere for the night.
  • You don’t have to do anything after sex and can just fall asleep lying against each other.


  • The risk of being too tired for sex.
  • You may have less time for extensive foreplay.

Timing is personal

The truth is there’s really no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to choosing the right time for sex. It all depends on you and your partner and your schedules and preferences. The most important thing is to make time for intimacy and communicate with your partner about what works best for both of you. So, whatever your favorite moment may be: whether in the morning, after work or before bed, just make sure that you make time for each other and keep the flame of passion burning, even in the hustle and bustle of modern life.
