Researchers examined the best time to make love based on the physical changes of the body as people age, as reported by The Telegraph.
Making love may seem to rely on spontaneity and chance, but, according to the experts, timing is everything.
When it comes to the human body, we are ruled by our ‘circadian rhythms’ – the changes in our body in relation to sunlight.
The optimal time for sleep and sex changes as our bodies age, says Dr Paul Kelley, a clinical research associate at Oxford University’s Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute.
Dr Kelley explains: “Your body clock changes with age, when you feel like waking up. It actually controls every body system and controls every one of the trillion cells in your body.”
“In most things we’ve got the timings right,” says Dr Kelley, “but we haven’t accounted for these changes”.
