5 Surprising Scientific Reasons why you should Sleep Naked


Au naturel, in the buff, wearing your birthday suit, naked, undressed, bare assed. Whatever you call it, sleeping naked and keeping your core body temperature regulated is actually the way to heat things up in the bedroom.

Check out these scientific reasons why you should sleep in the buff and bask in the glory of your nakedness. 

You'll have better quality shut-eye

To fall asleep your body's core temperature needs to drop slightly and in order to stay asleep it needs to regulate itself throughout the night.  If you get too hot your brain will wake you up to find out why you're so hot. Clothing can interfere with this natural fluctuation so wearing your birthday suit will actually help your body regulate its temperature.

Sleeping naked also means less distractions - no clothes getting tangled or twisted - resulting in a deeper, more relaxed sleep.

People who sleep naked also report less incidence of insomnia and a Dutch study found that participants whose body temperatures were lowered recorded deeper sleep for longer periods of time. 

You'll have more sex

If you're sleeping next to someone, skin-on-skin contact encourages physical availability which can ultimately lead to a more active sex life.  A naked body lying next to you generally means more cuddling which triggers the release of oxytocin, the hormone which increases your sex drive and makes you feel more connected to your partner. 

A UK poll found that 57% of people who slept in the nude reported being happy in their relationships vs 48% of people who wore PJs. 

It's thought that the more time you spend naked, the more comfortable you will be in your own skin. Being more comfortable leads to being more confident which also makes you more attractive to others. 

And in our article 6 Weird and Wonderful Things That Make Men Horny! we revealed that clean sheets are actually a turn on so why spoil the moment with PJs. Bedding can feel wonderfully soft which can relax your body and encourage more intimacy with your partner.

Your pink bits will be healthier

Bacteria thrives in moist, warm environments so wearing PJs or underwear increases your odds of getting an infection.

For women, sleeping naked lets them air out their hoo-ha. Cooler, more airy sleeping conditions can help prevent yeast infections resulting in a healthier vagina.

For men, testes will remain at a cooler temperature and this helps keep your sperm healthier. In fact wearing loose underwear during the day and sleeping naked can result in a 25% increase in sperm quality. 

And in our recent article we talked about your penis needing quality shut eye and that sleeping less than 5 hours a night lowered the testosterone levels of young, healthy guys by 10% after only a few days.

Who would have thought that free balling was a healthy option!

You'll boost your metabolism 

If you overheat during the night your cortisol levels tend to stay high even after you've woken up.  Cortisol is a hormone and high levels can lead to increased anxiety and stimulate your appetite for comfort food. 

A diabetes study in 2014 found that when people slept in a chilly room they produced a greater volume of brown fat, a healthy fat that burns calories to generate body heat. So keeping your body temperature lower by sleeping in the nude can produce the same effect.

You'll look younger

While you sleep you naturally trigger the release of melatonin and growth hormones which are vital anti-aging hormones. A cooler sleeping environment (below 21 degrees celsius) helps the body regulate these hormone levels. Sleeping naked is sounding better and better!

Sleeping naked really is the new black! So ditch the PJs and indulge in some naked time tonight!

      My current partner is doing the same, and I'm definitely not going the same path. just love my freedom too much :). definitely we are not weirdo..I much rather feel a body next to me than a piece of clothing..

    We have always slept naked and spend as much time nude in our secluded back yard, only time clothes get involved is cool weather- work or visitors not into nudity. Although sleeping naked allows free touching and veiwing by either, sexy lingerie is a very nice change.. Cheers n enjoy

    Sleeping in nude is by far the best. Less restriction, better sleep, better hard on in the morning, great instant sex. Love getting up in the morning in nude and do a bit stretching tai chi in the back yard..

    Sleeping naked and without the restriction of any clothing is sublime! Nakedness in bed is sensual and sexy but if I sleep alone I sometimes just wear a loose Tshirt or put on my electric blanket so I can get into a warm bed. This is no substitute for a warm body but helps when it's cold and you live alone!!

    P J's What are they??? Might have worn them when I was a kid ,can't remember. Have tried but gave up, too restrictive and have a much better sleep in the nude and certainly has the advantage for spontaneity. Going nude is the best, frees the body and the mind.

    PJs in winter or a top to keep the nips warm at least. If my nipples are so cold they feel like they are going to snap off, I can't get to sleep.

    Sleeping naked gives me a wonderful feeling of freedom, easy access to my own body as well as that of the partner of the moment. That wonderful skin on skin and spooning a cock resting on my arse and a hand cupping my tit, oh so good.

  • sydneystorm

    I usually sleep naked but in Winter I love my pyjamas. And my sheepskin and kangaroo skin.

  • quivertouch99

    I couldn't think of anything worse than sleeping with pyjamas on, they are so restrictive and unsexy.

    I haven't slept with pyjamas since I was 16 and can't think of any reason why you would unless you were camping in the snow.

    The feeling of cuddling up and spooning totally naked is almost as good as sex and to deny yourself that wonderful feeling of skin on skin amounts to sacrilege.

    While I was married I slept with pj's all the time
    and it is true we hardly had sex
    But the day I left I slept nude and it felt great
    and having partners in my bed or being in theirs
    and we sleep naked is so much better

    I have slept naked for many years and as the article says, if you are sleeping with a partner, it is so much nicer to easily feel the naked body next to you... It sure does increase the chances of sex!!!
