You’ll Never Guess What the Most Popular Time of the Week to Have Sex Is (Actually, You Probably Will)

Pin it

Sex O'Clock is that sweet spot right between getting primped and a resigned Seamless order.

"Sex O'Clock," though generally not accepted by military or standard time purists, is apparently an hour in the week that actually exists. According to a new survey by sex toy slingers Love Honey, 7:37 p.m. on a Saturday night is the most common time of the week to get down on it.

Why the highly specific time of 7:37 p.m. on the dot? Nobody's working, you're probably still at home doing that will-I-or-won't-I going out dance, holding your mascara wand in one hand and a tortilla chip in the other. Your hair is done, but you're only half-dressed. By 7:26 p.m. what couple wants to agree to put on pants on a non-holiday weekend when there is a queen-sized bed with a new mattress pad just whispering, "Stay innnn?" When you think about it, Sex O'Clock is just the sweet spot right between getting primped and a resigned Seamless order for steamed dumplings.

The funny part is that, according to the survey, the horniest time of day is actually 4:33 p.m. on a Saturday, but due to work constraints and perhaps the unflattering late afternoon light, we hold out for another three hours. Which works out because a 7:37 game time still leaves enough room for foreplay, a Fruit Roll-Up, and catching the latest poorly reenacted follies of Sex Sent Me To The ER.
