    When does the mood strike you? According to a new study, men and women lust for their significant other typically at much different times of day.

    A survey of more than 2,300 people found guys prefer to get romantic in the morning, but most women don't feel frisky until after dark, the Daily Mail reports.

    Sex toy brand Lovehoney found women’s interest in getting it on were highest late at night between 11 p.m. to 2 a.m., while the guys wanted it first thing in the morning from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.

    The good news: the study also found people tend to settle down with partners who have similar sex drives to their own.

    Below is the breakdown of their findings on the time of day men and women most desire sex:

                                     Men        Women

    6 a.m. – 9 a.m.      28%          11%
    9 a.m. – 1 p.m.      10%            9%
