Why Do We Usually Getting It On at Night?

A night is the time for sleeping, and it is the time for making love. Humans often use the after-dark hours for getting it on with their partners. This time of day is convenient, it is socially appropriate and it allows for bonding. That is why people use the evening for their romantic encounters.


Many couples, when they head to bed for the evening, gettiing it on before falling asleep. One study of young married couples showed that 58 percent of participants’ lovemaking sessions happened at night. They happened more often on weekend nights than weekdays, but on any day, night sessions were more common than daytime ones.

Scientists have suggested several reasons why nighttime lovemaking is so popular:

Lying in bed afterward, might help women achieve pregnancy. Humans don’t always use lovemaking for conception, but sometimes pregnancy is the goal. If so, some doctors recommend that the woman stays horizontal for a while after lovemaking. This keeps gravity from removing the products of lovemaking from her body and increases the chances of conception. If a couple makes love at night, it is natural for her to remain to lie in bed afterward.

Being in bed together helps couples bond. If a couple getting it on at night, they may remain in bed together all night long. Sleeping in the same bed encourages the bond between a man and a woman. Nearness to a loved one encourages the production of hormones that produce loving feelings. Making love at night leads to all-night closeness and bonding.
