Moonfisher: I have to get up on occasion to fetch glasses of water for my rotten spawn, so nightgown it is. Before them, though, it was undies and tank top.


Hermione_Granger: I don't sleep naked because I have big boobs and it's rather painful to have someone squashing your nipples with their arm. That's an unpleasant awakening, let me tell you.


Again, you farkettes taunt us without providing ample evidence.

Then there's waking up from the sudden shock and pain pinching your own nipple between your arm and the bed.

Psycat: Hell, I've slept in the nude for decades. When I'm home alone, I'm usually naked or in my underwear. The underwear is mostly to keep pubes out of my projects...


What about the beard? Do those hairs get into your "projects'?
 
2012-12-30 01:12:34 PM  
I used to sleep naked until the time I slept in a hotel with an overhead mirror. Woke up and damn near scared myself to death.

Sleep in a burkha now.

semiotix: Spanky_McFarksalot: I use to until I got a dog. he sleeps with me. don't want accidental buttsecks

Well, that just means he has to wear underwear.

Mine doesn't sleep in my bed, but I'm thinking about making him wear boxers around the house anyway. I don't like the way he flaunts his junk all day. Yeah, yeah, I get it, your dick is bigger than mine. At least mine is still attached to some testicles, you stupid pug.


I found this funny.

Teufelaffe: Real Women Drink Akvavit: I had no idea I was so edgy by refusing to wear "stuff" while sleeping. Pajamas are for strolling around the house on your days off. That's why some of them are so cute. Who you gonna impress when you're sleeping? Just strip down, roll up in your comforter like a little burrito (if you're single, as I am) and saw some logs in comfort. Geez,  peeps. What is the  problem with being nekkid some people seem to have? I don't really remember it, but I'm pretty sure I was born nekkid. It is simply the natural state of being.

Some of us need to wear at least underwear to keep the more...floppy bits from getting into rather uncomfortable positions. Were I female, I'd probably sleep in the nude, but alas I am a mere male and thus wear underwear to bed.


Totally. Nothing worse than rolling over while said floppy bit is caught under you.
 
2012-12-30 01:15:39 PM  
Depends on the season. When it's freezing farking cold outside and I don't want to pay a fortune to heat the place I have pajamas, robe, the whole nine.

However once the temp goes above 48F radiative heating from the sun does it's job. So yeah, I will sleep naked then.
 
2012-12-30 01:15:54 PM  
One of the 8% here. Wife and I sleep in the buff since we got married. It's just a lot more comfortable than wearing even underwear.
 
2012-12-30 01:20:58 PM  
I'd leave skid marks on the sheets.
 
2012-12-30 01:20:58 PM  
I'm in the 8%. (likely has something to do with the fact that I'm SO proud of my birthday suit).

trekkiecougar: I've slept naked since childhood.  I can't stand the feel of fabric bunching and twisting around my legs and body while I sleep.  And underwear and pj's want to ride up and painfully give one a wedgie/vedgie!   Blecch!!  I'm proudly one of the 8 per centers.


"Vedgie!" I love it! That is too funny -- and all too true. I HATE that. I am like you, and for the same reasons. Oddly, I was just thinking last night that heaven forfend, something bad happens to me that requires an ambulance at night and I can't do anything and I'm stark naked. I suppose when I get a bit older I must get used to at least wearing underwear and a T-shirt at night.

In the kid-making stage it's naked naked naked whenever possible...but once you actually have kids, it's pretty much a given that you'll be getting up at odd hours for whatever reason...so at that point the naked is no longer an option for all kinds of reasons.

Me, if it's my turn to get up and deal with one of the kids' night-time issues, I will have a hellaciously tough time getting back to sleep if there's too much of a temperature change between the nice warm bed and the ice-cold hallway.

Gough: Catlike Typist: Yes, but would you sleep naked on hotel sheets?

Yes, but I do make it a point to avoid the bedspread and the blanket.

/Just happened to have a blacklight with me once....


You know what really glows under a blacklight very vibrantly? Soaps and cleaners(dried and wet).

Semen and blood(dried or wet), not so much, despite what CSI and the internet at large(probably leanred from CSI and urban myths) will tell you.

However, spraying an area with Luminol then killing the lights will make some things like blood, glow, without the use of a blacklight.(only lasts a short time).

I think much of the urban myth believers confuse the two activities.

Anyone that actually has a blacklight and seen such bodily fluids under a blacklight knows the truth.

Semen may fluoresce a tiny bit, but pales in comparison to white or neon fabrics that glow(it will most usually surface as a darker spot on these), or other "stains" that glow vibrantly.

/my dormroom was my lab, and party central.

Badly nicotine stained fingertips glow yellow, as do some people's, but not everyone's, teeth(though I don't recall exactly what causes teeth to glow, artificially white teeth are obvious, but I've seen neon yellow and orange, i think plaque itself glows orange, iirc). Obviously, perfectly clean and natural teeth don't glow much, a bit blue but really tame like semen.
Highlighters and glowstick fluid, and Tide(and various other cleaners, but not all of them) etc.

Semen and blood, however, not so much. If you really want to see how little they do, get some on a fabric that's not UV reactive(easy enough to test, typically a dark towel[though the material of some fibers and lint will give you a salt and pepper effect regardless of overall reactiveness]).

Now, if your source has an unusually high amount of something reactive, your mileage may vary. In general though, of the random bright you'd see in a hotel is not human bodily fluids.

I'm told cat pee really glows...

bah. I have two kids, 5 and 7, and it has not stopped me from sleeping in the nude or dealing with their nightime wanderings, nightmares and other issues. Yes, it does mean a bit of a temparture shift when I go from warm bed to walking down the hall nude but that is a minor inconvenience.

On that same trip (with a HS band) we also stayed en masse in another school's wrestling room. Again, not pleasant under UV light.

You probably didn't know about ringworm under UV, did you?

Definitely an 8%er.

Not only do I not get a good night's sleep while twisted up in bed clothes, I just like being naked. If I'm home for the night, I'm comfortably starkers. A quick set of clean, dry clothes is always at the ready.

Being naked at home just feels better, and it's way more relaxing. It does require a little more hygiene and domicile cleanliness (not to an obsessive degree), but neither of those are bad things.

2012-12-30 01:45:51 PM  
I'm going to guess the 8%ers here are probably 40 and up, if not older. Younger people today exhibit a lot more modesty today than the previous generation did, likely due to the absence of things like public showers, even in settings like gym in high school where they were once commonplace, but were all phased out in the 80's. It's not just an American thing either, the stereotype of the nude beaches in Europe overrun by weird old men isn't that far off. You old people can keep your exhibitionism, I like my clothes.

Too much of a temperature difference between me and the hubby. Most nights I'm in a nightgown, under a sheet, comforter and a down comforter. He's under a sheet with the fan on. For the winter, I bought a long-sleeved nightgown from LL Bean, and severely underestimated the length of the skirt. It has been dubbed the Mennonightie.
 
2012-12-30 01:51:13 PM  
I am the 92%. Even with a heated mattress pad and down comforter, I tend to end up with the covers around my waist. A long sleeved tee is necessary in winter. Silk boxers year 'round.

I am mid 40s and one of the 8%ers, so who knows, you may be on to something. Its not a matter of exhibitionism. Its just that we are not prudes and dont have unusual mental hang ups about the nude human body. We also have no issue with it if you like your clothes. While we hope you dont have any problem with our nudity, we are not about to cover up because you have some sort of mental issue.

That explains a lot right there. I have quite a bit of leg hair, I hate wearing socks for prolonged periods, always pulls and tears. Sleep time is time for my body to relax. Can't sleep nude most of the time (No privacy) but when I get a chance I do. Didn't start when I was a teenager, started after I dated a woman who had her own place and we could both sleep safely in the nude. I can say from experience that roommates do not approve of a naked man making coffee in their kitchen who reeks of sex.

Ima4nic8or: Its just that we are not prudes and dont have unusual mental hang ups about the nude human body.


It's not about being a prude. I love walking around nude if I'm able to. It's a matter of comfort when sleeping. Being covered up might help with a feeling of safety and security. Even on the hottest summer days that I might sleep nude, I HAVE to have a sheet to wrap around me.

At home, sure. At work or school, not so much. I found them to give me entirely too much public wood.

A bit further on the TMI side, I've also found that, um... moisture(pre-ejaculate, much as I hate that term I hate pre-cum even more...male lube? Cowper's fluid sounds odd too, i'd rather say penis drool...(nsfw wiki btw, drooling penis picture)... that sometimes is a result from having wood, can ruin silk pretty quick.

Considering you feel the need to announce in your very name that you have sex outside of marriage (OO!! Shocking! Really! You're so edgy! SRSLY! Mean it!), you really shouldn't be surprised that people tend to think that you may, just possibly, be something of an exhibitionist or at least an attention whore.

Just sayin'.

I wear clothes because I find them comfortable, and because it's pretty-much the social norm. So get down off your high horse and for Elvis' sake put your weener away. Nothing is more silly looking than a flaccid prick. And your weener is kind of ridiculous too.

I sleep clothed. When I was seven I was dragged out of bed and outside because of a large earthquake. It was terrifying at the time. Now I'm afraid of a natural disaster striking and having to get up and go. I live in Southern California and the earthquake I'm referring to is the Northridge Earthquake, but the pocket I live in is also prone to fires. It's walking around partially or even fully naked in my home during the day that feels more comfortable.

WippitGuud: I have 4 kids.... 2 of which are young enough that they sometimes end up in my bed overnight. It's more of a necessity - I'd sleep nude if I thought I could get away with it.


QFT. When the kids are away I often do. More often in the summer; not because of the temperature but because I work harder to stay in shape. The wife shouldn't have to be overexposed to pale/tubby winter body.
