I had a conversation with a friend this weekend and this topic came up. She thought it was odd to sleep without something on, I disagree. Thoughts?
I like my water with hops, malt, hops, yeast, and hops.

Yes.

Clothes suck.

Edit: I think women tend to need clothes (and more bedding) to maintain their body temperature. More surface area per pound than men. All the women I know wear something to bed.

If I can't go to bed wearing ridiculous pajamas, I don't want to live.

I definitely don't, but awhile ago i found out this one chick friend of mine does and it became a huge turn on (no pun intended!). I certainly try not to miss her calls, especially when she calls late in the night!

Is it cool to sleep in the nude in somebody else's guest bed? Would you sleep in a bed knowing that somebody else slept in it naked?

Normally, people wash their guest bed sheets and linens after use by guests.
I'm not sure how you and your friends are handling this.

Unless I also knew that they never laundered their sheets, but that would be enough to dissuade me even if people didn't sleep naked there.

I started sleeping naked around 6 years ago and I would never go back. I can't even feel comfortable sleeping in boxers anymore.

If I'm in somebody else's bed then I'll usually don some undies.

My take is that I'll continue using my bottled body wash and let other people mull that question. I do think it's kind of rude for people not to wash things off, though.

I broadcast my room life pretty much when I’m in my room; so, um, no. Used to though, and didn’t care either way.

No. Can’t sleep in the nude. Uncomfortable. Can’t sleep with too many clothes on either, though. Just boxers and (if it’s really cold) socks; nothing more, nothing less.

I've never understood the aversion to nudity in bed. Being naked is natural. Clothing is inhibiting. I can't even sleep in underwear… drives me nuts. If you're cold, put another blanket on your bed.

I've done without PJs for a very long time. I also have done without getting jammies twisted around various body parts during sleep. When we sleep over on a visit, we strip the bed on our way out, so the "other people" thing isn't an issue.

I ensure that I don't leave hairs on the bar soap my wife and I use, much the same way I make sure that I don't leave beard trimmings in the sink. It's only polite.

I hated that bit about public restrooms/showers in college. The various hairs found, left behind by inconsiderate people, in the sinks and showers. ick!

No PJs ≠ nude

---

Personally, I don't enjoy sleeping nude. I find having my parts flipping and flopping all over me whenever I adjust my position slightly distracting.

I sleep in boxers only. When it's balls cold I might wear socks but I still keep my fan on full blast.

How would wearing socks prevent your balls from being cold?! I get it, I’m just being facetious

I think he meant it like "cold as balls," but then that begs the question of why your balls would be cold. See a doctor if that is the case.

Seriously. If you've never slept in the nude, you really don't realize the "igloo effect" that occurs under the covers. Sleeping in the nude is MUCH warmer than sleeping with pajamas on because your body heat gets trapped under the covers, giving your entire body, even extremities, a much warmer experience.

And if you're not sleeping alone, I really feel sorry for you if you still wear pajamas to bed. Or if your partner does.

The first time I slept in the nude it felt a little funny. But seriously... it's more comfortable, warmer, and if your bed sheets are clean, what the hell is the point in not being nude? Are you that ashamed of yourself?

Honestly, I expect most of those answering "no" in this poll are single and under 25.

This makes absolutely no sense. The effect is the same no matter what kind of clothes you are wearing.

Not really, if you sleep in head to toe pajamas most of the heat will stay very close to your body trapped in the clothing. Being naked might feel cold at first but your body will pump out the heat until your entire bed is piping hot.

Sleeping naked also makes morning nookie easily attainable.

Exactly. Think of the heat-to-toe pajamas as simply an "inner" set of covers. The same effect applies within the pajamas, and subsequently to the entire bed through heat transfer. It can't be any different because in each case the heat source is identical.

It's been 50/50 -- about half of the women I've known have worn something to bed regularly. Lucky me.

I can't sleep nude all the time, temp regulation and situational readiness require it. So it's an occasional thing only.

While I wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment, waking up next to an unclad girl does give a man ideas he might not have otherwise.
