In Defense Of Morning Sex


This Erika W. Smith piece for Refinery 29 discusses the ongoing debate over the pros and cons of morning sex and kissing. Find an excerpt below, then the full article here:

“One time, a few years back, I slept over at a friend with benefits' place. First thing in the morning, he asked me for a blowjob. “Can we kiss for a bit first?” I asked. No, he said: we both had morning breath. “We can brush our teeth?” I suggested. No, he said: that would kill the moment. (I left without giving him a blowjob.) Morning kissing can be controversial. Haters say that morning breath ruins it. Fans (including me) say that bad breath fades once you get your mouths moving, and morning kissing can easily lead to morning sex.”
