It’s 3am and the neighbour’s cat is having a yowling good time. You’re a bit dozy, but wouldn’t mind doing likewise. Having sex is good for getting you back to sleep in the warmth of the blankets.
You don’t even have to get too acrobatic if you don’t want to. Lie side-by-side and stroke each other gently, then hook your legs together so that you can put the relevant parts close to each other.
Or take spooning to a whole new level of intimate enjoyment by doing it horizontal doggy style. A little writhing, your hand in the right place at the right time, a few deep thrusts and you’ll be purring like the cat that got the cream.
There’s a difference between sleepy sex and having sex in your sleep, known as sexomnia, which can create difficulties. Visit our sex hub for more info.
