PSA: Morning Sex Makes You More Productive!Best. News. EVER.
Every Sunday, I have this vision of how I'm going to start the week feeling productive. I wake up extra early the next day, make a fresh pot of coffee, exercise a little, and maybe catch up on the news before I walk to the MRT.

But on days when they felt extra productive, the routine went like this: Use the bathroom, have coffee, shower, sex up partner, check phone, exercise, brush teeth, eat breakfast, take care of pets, and drink water.
Unsurprisingly, men were more game to sacrifice sleep for sex (41.5 minutes vs the 30.7 minutes women were willing to give up, LOL). 53 percent of the male respondents and 45 percent of female participants said morning sex made them feel more productive, while only seven percent of men and 12 percent of women said it made them less efficient.
