Put this quote on your bedroom wall: No sleep, no sex! Not getting enough sleep hurts your sex life just as bad as forgetting your lady’s birthday. While there is no direct relationship between slumber and better sex, a National Sleep Foundation (NSF) poll, conducted in 2002, shows people’s moods can be affected by the amount of sleep they get. So let’s check out eight ways sleep can improve your sex life.

More Energy

How can you engage in great sex with no energy? You can’t! Inadequate slumber leaves you slumping in the bedroom.

Positive Mood

You’ve got be in a good mood to be “in the mood.” That’s not happening if you’re not getting enough shut-eye. According to research, individuals who sleep less than six  hours are more likely to report they are tired, stressed, sad and angry than those who sleep more than eight hours.

Improves Memory

How in the hell can an improved memory improve your sex life? Simple. You remember your spouse’s birthday. Moving along…

Live Longer

Last time I checked, you’ve got to be alive to have sex. Numerous studies have revealed a correlation between sleep and lifespan. A study conducted on women between the ages of 50 and 79 revealed more deaths occurred in women who got less than five hours or more than six and a half hours of sleep per night.

Alleviates Inflammation

Inflammation is definitely a sex-killer! Inflammation is linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, and premature aging. Talk to someone who deals with inflammation on a daily basis and I guarantee the last thing on their mind is having sex. Studies show people getting less than six  hours of sleep are predisposed to this debilitating condition.

Boosts Creativity

You think performing the same old “tried and tested” sexual positions leaves your partner yearning for more? Yeah, right! More like yawning for less. Getting creative in the bedroom spices up not only your sex life, but your relationship in general.

Sharpens Attention

You ever notice how your lover likes it when you grip her butt while in missionary position? You probably didn’t if you’re sleep deprived. Adequate slumber sharpens your attention span; making you more aware of your woman’s body. Though of course, she loves it when you pay attention to her in general.

Boosts Fat Loss

It is hard to have quality sex with a humongous gut. If you desire to maximize your lovemaking ability, it’s a must to be in-shape. Getting enough sleep can help. A research study found that dieters who were well rested lost more fat—56% of their weight loss—than those who were sleep deprived.

So what are you waiting for? Go hit the sack and get your zzz’s in right away!
