A new study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine examined the influence of nightly sleep duration and quality and its influence on female sexual activity.  The study used 171 college-aged women and had them complete questionnaires about sexual function over 24 hours and sleep quality from the night before (how long it took to fall asleep, total sleep time, etc.) For women in romantic relationships,  a higher level of sexual desire was reported for every hour of sleep. Additionally, researchers found a 14% increase in the likeliness of sexual activity the next day. A longer sleep duration was found to be key to a higher sex drive and fewer problems with vaginal arousal compared with those who obtained less sleep. Just another reason to sleep in tomorrow!
