Mawla Ali (عليه السلام) said:

It is recommended for Muslims to copulate with their wives on the first 
night of Ramadan, as Allah(azwj) Says: It is made lawful for you, during the nights of fasting, to have carnal relations with your wives.(2:187).

Al-khisal (sheikh saqood), vol.2, p.611

:salam:

Well, that makes sense, since 1/ libido tends to diminish during the month, and it is not that healthy to stay without performing intercourse for a long time and 2/ some people with high hormonal levels might feel the urge to have sex during the first day of fasting so it's better that they have sex the night before so they will not get tempted to break it.

This statement may be a fact, but what is more important is to see what has been commanded by Allah himself.

While Allah has allowed / encouraged married people to have sex, He has absolutely and categorically disallowed unmarried people to have any sort of sexual pleasure. So Even if a person has to remain unmarried for many years, he still must remain completely sex-free. 

Allah's rules do not cause ill-health for those who follow them. If it had been really unhealthy to not have sex for long periods, Allah would have permitted sex for those who cannot get married for long periods of time. The fact that unmarried people have to remain abstinent even for years before marriage implies that premarital chastity and lack of sex is the most healthy thing for the unmarried ...while engaging in haram sex is the most unhealthy and physically damaging thing for the human body. 

Simply put, sex is healthy but as long as a person is unmarried it is chastity which is healthy and not sex.

Indeed. The context of the topic was that of a husband and his wife, I was only thinking for married people.

Salam, it also makes sense as it is coupling something that resonates with creativity and the Creator (Al Khaleq) to the beginning of the month, and one of His Names is the Initiator Al Mubdi. 

So maybe one resonates and amplifies those attributes of God (and others) by tuning into them at the onset of the most superior month.

Although I would think that it doesn't have to be intercourse, and can simply be affection, especially with couples who might not be able to for health reasons or whatever. Affection and those acts among married people - when done the right way - have huge rewards and benefits. And as is known about the month of Ramadan, any good deed is multiplied during that most special time.
