“I KNOW IT SOUND DUMB, BUT THINK ABOUT IT. THEY LITTLE HUMANS JUST LIKE US. THEY GOTTA SLEEP”
The father of over 13 kids, Johnathan Latmoore says that he only had unprotected intercourse at night, because he remember learning through sex-ed that your sperm is asleep at night.
“I WENT TO PUBLIC SCHOOL. SO DON’T BLAME ME. BLAME MY MAMA FOR NOT AFFORDING ME A BETTER EDUCATION.”
“If i could do it all over again. I’d wait a little later, because they were probably still awake” says Lattimore.

When is the Best Time to Get Pregnant?
The best time to conceive is during a woman’s “fertile window.” Ovulation occurs when the ovaries release an egg, which travels down the fallopian tube and survives for 12-24 hours. You can get pregnant if the egg gets fertilized with sperm; the chances are highest within 24 hours of ovulation and one day beforehand. But because sperm can live for three to five days in the reproductive tract, it’s also possible to get pregnant by having sex in the five days leading up to ovulation. (In other words, five-day-old sperm can still fertilize a newly released egg.)
How Often Should You Have Sex to Get Pregnant?
You may think that cutting down on sex to “save” your guy’s sperm—or only having sex during ovulation—will make getting pregnant easier. But abstaining too much can throw off conception. Indeed, while holding off on sex can increase sperm count, it can also decrease sperm motility. What’s more, “it’s easy to miss the fertile period if sex is limited only to when you think you’re ovulating, because many women believe they’re ovulating when they actually aren’t,” says Samuel Wood, M.D., medical director at The Reproductive Sciences Center in La Jolla, CA.
What Time of Day Should You Have TTC Sex?
If you’re wondering when to have sex to conceive, the morning may be your best bet. Or, specifically, after your man gets a good night’s rest, says Melissa M. Goist, M.D., Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at The Ohio State University Medical Center. When he’s sleeping, his body regenerates the sperm lost during the day. Although the average sperm cell has a pretty short shelf life, even stalwart swimmers can hit their expiration date early if they get too warm from hot tubs or exercises like bike riding, Dr. Goist says.
