Bed sharing 'drains men's brains'

Sharing a bed with someone could temporarily reduce your brain power - at least if you are a man - Austrian scientists suggest.
When men spend the night with a bed mate their sleep is disturbed, whether they make love or not, and this impairs their mental ability the next day.


If you sleep with one for long enough, before you know it you'll be reduced to a mindless automaton who just says the phrase "yes dear" over and over again.

That comes as no real shocker. How many men enjoy sleeping with women? (You know what I mean)

I've always been an advocate not only of separate beds, but of separate bedrooms. Unfortunately my wife disagrees.

I sleep just fine with my wife. It took me about a month to adjust, but now I don't sleep well without her.

It's all about finding the right person. In the past I've never been able to share a bed, never got a good nights sleep. But after I met my girlfriend, I never once had a problem sharing a bed with her. Now I can't stand to sleep in an empty bed.

A good mattress also helps...

Well dorm beds are just **** no matter how you look at it. That's why I got a futon. Of course then my futon got all beat out of shape and started hurting my back. That's when I discovered foam.

I used to be that way, couldn't get a wink when someone was in bed with me, all the bumping and extra body heat. Now, I can't sleep alone. I'll wake up and feel around and no one is there, it's disconcerting. Not to mention, there's no chance for late night/early morning "invasions". There's nothing better than waking up in the middle of sex, you were dreaming about it and realize that it's really happening.

HER DOG sleeps in the middle of our 1200 buck foam matress on the 900 buck platform bed. We bot get a little of the side, while the Basset sleeps with her head on HER PILLOW, and her butt on MY PILLOW!
Good thing we give the Basset a bath every month or so.

Come to think of it, my wife doesn't sleep in the middle of the bed. Maybe that explains my good sleep. We cuddle up before we actually fall asleep. Then when one of us begins to drift off, we get uncomfortable, roll away from each other, and don't touch until morning time when we cuddle again.

If this made anyone nauseous, I apologize.

Surely that's your own fault for allowing it to happen?

Inevitably every MacNN thread goes this direction. Every thread should have a countdown built into it until "gay" is mentioned.

Have ever told your partner you do not want to be touched when you are in bed with her. If you chose your partner more carefullly you would not have any problems.

Before I asked my wife to marry me, I said, "You know, if you touch me while we're in bed, I can't ask you this question."

I'll bet that's the last time you ask for a threesome with her best friend.

FWIW I'd be a rabid neo-con too if I had a basset hound farting in my face all night.

Hey, if you don't mention it then live with the results of your reluctance to deal with the issue when you might have done something about it.

It COULD have been during or before the first sleepover.

Monique has a point. Anyone who feels they are too shy to bring things up before marriage are only allowing for the seeds of discontent to sprout and take root which may later grow into trees producing bitter fruit.

It's JUST touching while sleeping here in this instance but what OTHER things have come as an unexpected surprise since you said, "I do?"
