Sex is an important part of the evening known as "date night", but it doesn't have to happen at the end of the date. In fact, there are a bunch of benefits to getting down before you even head out the door. Photo by Matthias Ripp.
Not only does it put you in a good mood for the rest of the evening, but as Megan Cahn explains on A Cup of Jo, you don't have to worry about ruining sexy times by overindulging in other ways:
But sometimes, after too much wine and trying one too many dishes off the menu (why do we always order so many apps?), when we get home passing out is all we feel like doing. The other night, though, something came over us and we ended up in the bedroom before we even left the house for dinner. The next several hours were spent at our usual spot eating our usual things, but it felt different — a little lighter, a little more smiley.
Obviously, this tip is meant for those in fairly stable relationships, and not meant to apply to dates of the Tinder persuasion. Having sex before drinks would be dumb in that case, as sometimes the alcohol is the only good part of a Tinder date.
