What's your, er, position on morning sex? - from Em and Lo

Em & Lo Em & Lo
This week on our site, we posted an article about how to have morning sex, and we admit, it was heavy on the how-to-avoid-morning-b reath tips. To balance things out, we also posted a comment by one of our readers, who said this in response to a recent morning breath poll on our site (are we a little obsessed, perhaps?): "What’s wrong with this world that we have to sterilize everything about ourselves, even the idea that our breath might not be naturally minty fresh? My partner and I spend hours in bed in the morning kissing, making love, and speaking clearly to one another without holding our noses."

So, what do you think? Is it love me, love my morning breath? Or are you a fan of sneaky tricks like dissolvable mint sheets -- or just doing it doggie style -- to avoid morning breath? Any other tips on how to enjoy morning sex?

Both of us have to get up to pee first thing in the morning, anyway, it doesn't take more than a few minutes to run the toothbrush or use a slug of mouthwash.

Mornings are nice, because the kids are usually asleep, the whole world seems asleep except us. I love to make love as the sun comes up, but that's more difficult in the summer, but we still manage it.

I didn't notice morning breath. Am I supposed to? Getting up to mouthwash would have ruined the mood, anyway ... 'You're here, you're naked, you're willing - let's get this on! WOOT!'

We usually don't have morning sex due to work schedules, so morning breath has never been much of an issue

I don't notice morning breath on my guy, and he doesn't notice it on me but I usually wake him up with a BJ when I'm ready in the mornings so I guess that's kinda like using a type of mouthwash before close encounters with his face.

I am a teeth freak. My mouth has like $30k of work done and so I like to keep it pristine not only in looks but in freshness. I actually sleep with gum in my mouth. I do EVERYTHING with gum in my mouth...yes everything. So, when I wake up in the morning, my mouth is still minty and it masks whatever the other person has going on. But regardless, whatever is in the moment goes. I don't interrupt moments like that hand over a tic tac.

My b/f says he doesn't notice my breath but I feel better if I brush my teeth. I wake up early and my b/f is usually sleeping. I like to give him a BJ, as he usually has an AM erection and when I am aroused, I go cow girl on him....by this time he is awake and breath, good or bad is not an issue. AM sex is the only sex I really enjoy w/o foreplay or an orgasm prior to penetration.

Love morning sex - even though it's relatively rare compared to evenings. My wife gets up at 5 AM during the week - so I'm not going for that! Then she wants to sleep in on Saturday and I golf Sundays.

Now that its summer, we'll have more chances. When we do it - she usually does a quick brush up and pee. That doesn't spoil the mood for us - we don't have any trouble shifting gears from hygiene to lust!

Morning sex is the best part of waking up! Mouthwash is quick if you run to the bathroom ....

Morning sex is hit or miss here. It has at times been some of the best sex for us, but often, my parts are finicky at that time. Sometimes my puss isn't ready in the morning for some reason. I think I have read that men are more likely to want it than women in the morning and women are more likely to want it at night because of a hormonal difference. I can't see that being the whole reason for my issue, but maybe it is a part?

As for the breath aspect, we like a clean mouth. But I am not a fan of super-minty breath, either. I find it distracting. I like to do what pinkzombie recommends at any time I expect something--mouthwash. And I rinse with water after so it isn't overpowering.

Nowadays when we do it in the morning, it's often after a brushing of our teeth and very long hair. And a necessary tinkle. It doesn't have the same appeal as the just-woke-up sex, but it's still fun. Especially when we're short on time. It adds a frantic feel!

I never have morning sex, because I never let guys sleep over... haha but when I was sleeping over with a boy I was completely in love with I would always get out of bed an hour before he woke up and leave or put on makeup and use mouthwash and crawl back in. Perfection all the time! So morning breath's never been an issue for me.. whenever, wherever, however, baby!

Usually we don't have enough time in the mornings for sex, and neither of us are morning people.

Side by side spooning is great for morning sex. Slow and not very athletic.

Don't really have morning sex often Hubby is up at 4:30am to go to work and even on weekends he's early to rise. But every blue moon breath isn't even a thought. He's usually waking me up so he's between my legs before I'm awake enough for concern over my breath.

Mornings? I'm not even fully coherent. My bf is up and ready to go, and I'm too busy nagging about needing my coffee!

Breath has only been an issue once or twice for us. Every now and then I will need to brush because I can't stand my own mouth. But a few minutes in the bathroom and all is well.

Chewing gum!

Lauren - how do you not swallow it by accident? I like that idea but I'd probably choke on it during the night....lol.
