We learn more about ourselves every day thanks to science. It turns out that there is a universal tendency: humans prefer having sex during the night time. You might think that it is our modern way of life: working during the day, coming home, eating dinner, chilling and going to bed to do the naughty thing then sleeping, but it isn't. Here is the science behind our horny schedule!
I am guessing this is true for most of us, right?
So until now, it is the everyday story about this societal norm.
Let's go to the beginning and look at the times when humans were still living in caves.
According to anthropologists, men used to urinate in their caves before leaving.
Coming back to our present day, research shows that married couples have sex, mostly before sleeping.
Another finding the research showed was that couples have more sex on weekends.
There is another reason why married couples have sex at night.
But what about the couples who aren't married and who have more time for each other?
And another reason why we prefer night time to get naughty again stems from our ancestors' behavior.
For example for some people, such as Eskimos, sleeping together at night meant conserving heat.
Sleeping together and having physical contact raises the amount of oxytocin.
All in all, survival and reproduction have been vital since the beginning of the history of humans on Earth.
