What's your favourite time to have sex? If you're not a big fan of making out in the morning, it might be time to give it another try - both for your mood and your health.

New research has found that if you start your day with a quickie, you'll boost your immune system, feel full of that happy post-sex glow all day, and even improve the texture of your skin and hair.

Here are a few things to consider if you're thinking of resetting your sex clock... Many men are at their horniest first thing in the morning, as that's the time when their testosterone levels peak, plus blood circulation to the penis increases overnight.

What's more, after a good night's sleep, they feel full of energy and virility.

It can be argued that on the whole, women aren't crazy about morning sex as they hate doing it with bad breath and bed-hair.

Feeling fresh and looking their best makes you feel more confident, which increases your inclination to get amorous of an evening. The solution: do it in the 'spoons' position in the morning, so you're not in each other's faces.

According to a recent survey us Brits favour Saturday night sex, with Friday night our second favourite. Sunday morning came in third. Clearly while the fellas tend to favour early-morning passion, the ladies get the final say.

Sex hormones are released into a woman's bloodstream around noon which is a pretty inconvenient time to be getting frisky. This might explain why Mr Average from accounts looks strangely appealing just before lunchtime.

Another study found seven out of 10 British couples are just too tired to have sex. Hectic social lives, busy work schedules and looking after our children leaves us too exhausted to show we care in the most natural way possible, and two thirds of us only have the energy to get down to it at the weekend.

More than half of us will refuse to have sex if it is past a certain time at night, with just after 10pm the average cut-off time for jumping into bed with our loved one.
