What’s your sleep style?
How do you and your spouse spend your sleeping hours? Each on your own side of the bed, together in the middle, or one of you migrates to your spouse’s side? Do you both always sleep on the same side or do you periodically trade sides?
Do you fall asleep touching or maybe sleep touching each other all night? Do you share a blanket or each have your own? Clothes or not?
Depends on how cool the room is. If it’s cold, we spend the night touching in some form. I almost always start out more on his side, because if I get hot, I like a nice cool place to roll over to…. plus I tend to have to turn a lot because of a sore lower back. Since he has started sleeping with an APAP machine, he is pretty much “tied” to his side of the bed. He sleeps nude, I sleep pantiless, but with some form of pajamas, because skin on skin is just toO hot and sweaty. We always have a fan on. 🙂
The only time we may switch sides is when we are traveling. It used to be that I took the side closest to the bathroom 😀 Now, he takes the side closest to the door, for protection sake.
We have a KING size bed and DW sleeps on her side of the bed AND nearly every other part of my side as well! 😀 =( There have been a few times when I’ve gotten up and went over to “her” side of the bed because I was falling off the edge of my side. At the house I sleep on the side (left) closest to the door for protection BUT because of that, I always have to sleep on the left side no matter where we go!
At this point, we share a blanket but I am considering putting a single blanket on my side of the bed that she won’t be able to take easily.
Yes, we usually touch while falling asleep and I touch her many times with a hand under her butt or hips; whereas, she touches me by scratching my legs with her toenails to get me to stop snoring. 😀 She likes to spoon with me before she falls asleep. Clothes? Not usually for me, and it really depends for her. Nowadays she’ll start with something but end the night with partial clothing or nothing. YEAH!!! If I’m spooning her, she will always put my hand on her breast.
Same side all the time even when traveling. We have a king size bed and I always begin in the middle on my side with my hand cupping her breast. Sometimes I will lay on my back next to her and she will fondle me as I sleep nude. She always sleeps with pajamas and always sleeps with panties on. I always sleep nude. Only on really hot nights in the summer will she remove her pajamas but leave the panties on. She’s not sure she likes the freedom. Eventually I’ll roll over to sleep as it’s too hot together spooning for her. It’s a good way to relax as we drift off.
We both sleep nude, and always on DH’s side of the bed. He teases me that he is always ‘living’ on the edge and occasionally has almost lost sleep for fear of falling out. I tell him to shove me over or something, but he is too kind for such. Its been our joke that we could get by with a single bed. I tell him he is free to go sleep on my side of the bed, but he hasn’t yet. I can sleep through almost anything, but I am sure I’d be awake in an instant if I felt him getting into bed behind me.
We share a blanket and are somehow touching each other all night. Whether spooning, feet, hands, fondling each other, our bodies are always touching, skin to skin. I have purposely tried getting back into bed after using the bathroom and not touching DH. Somehow, it usually doesn’t take long until he is doing something to touch. He doesn’t remember when I ask him about it in the morning.
We usually sleep on our own sides – same side, even on a trip.
We always kiss and often snuggle before sleeping, but after that, as both of us are light sleepers, we don’t touch much. Although, I’d be willing to learn how to sleep tangled up 😀
I always sleep nude, but DW fears an earthquake or a fire, or the police, or the neighbors, (or Jesus) will suddenly show up! The few times she has tried to sleep nude meant she couldn’t sleep much.
Both of us are usually clothed in sleep type clothing, I tend to even wear socks just in case communists parachute in and I have to slip on my boots and go fight them (80% kidding). We are both separate blanket types and separate sleeping preferences overall in most things. The advantage of this is that when one of us is in the mood, it’s obvious since we will “make the journey” to the other’s side of the bed and there’s no mistaking intentions.
We always spoon when we’re going to sleep. I’m the big spoon, DW is the little spoon. We recently discussed this with another couple and learned they switch off who is big/little, which just shocked us. Ah the uniqueness of each couple!
If I had my druthers, we’d sleep nude. DW is against this when we’re home because one of us might have to get up with our kids. So most of the time we just wear underwear. She puts on a shirt sometimes when she gets cold. When it’s just us (kids on a sleepover or we’re having a getaway), we almost always both sleep naked. Her other objection there is that I “stab” her sometimes in the night… never intentionally, but it happens!
We sleep on our own sides of the bed but share the blanket. I sleep on the right side of the bed, just because I’m very right handed, meaning I am better at giving her pleasure with my right hand (than the left) when we have sex.
We usually sleep in panties/boxers only, but sometimes naked.
We always spoon for a while when we go to bed, with my arm around her and holding one of her breasts. So comfy, nice and intimate.
