I’m not saying this is a must. I’m not here to wag my finger and yell, “you should get naked more often” at you.
Just like intimacy and sex, people enjoy different things. So, I’m not going to paint everyone with the same brush.
Maybe you’ve tried it before, and it’s not your thing, or maybe you’re a big advocate of sleeping in your birthday suit.
Whatever side of the coin you’re on, you’re reading this article for a reason. And I’m not complaining. The more knowledge you have about why you should get naked more often, the better.
Aside from the sexual element, it’s tied to, sleeping naked actually comes with a load of health benefits. You don’t need to be in a relationship to reap the fruits of your nudeness.
I’m not telling you to sleep naked, but I’m saying you could give it a try. Why not?
7 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often
Let’s get down to it. Sleeping naked is healthy for you in more ways than one. If you’re on the fence about sleeping in your birthday suit, check out these benefits.
You’ll have better sex
What can I say? Clothes are a total buzzkill when it comes to intimacy and sex. So take them off!
Sleeping naked creates more skin-to-skin contact that increases intimacy. There’s more of a need to cuddle and embrace each other.
Naturally, this can lead to more sex, and well, more sex leads to more orgasms, and more orgasms keep you healthy and happy.
You get a better night’s sleep
For women, it’s health for your lady parts
The vagina is its own little tropical island – so exotic, I know! And while it sounds like paradise (and it is), it’s also prone to yeast infections to grow. What can I say? They enjoy the heat.
Bacteria and yeast grow in moist (*cringe*) areas of the body. So, to reduce the moisture, go nude.
While you’ll sleep, you’ll air out your vulva and keep the bad bacteria away. Do you need any other reason to get naked more often?
Your skin can breathe
We all want healthy skin, but for that, it needs to breathe.
So how do you get your skin to breathe? Get naked more often.
Sleeping naked helps the skin heal quicker. One study from the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology journal found that you achieve a deeper sleep that allows your body to heal by sleeping naked.
Reduce stress by sleeping naked
We’re stressed enough as it is, and going to bed with clothes on isn’t making it any better.
Many studies have looked at the power of sleeping in the nude to decrease stress. One study by the Journal of Gerontology looked at sleep patterns and found a close relationship between sleep and stress levels.
To help reduce stress, get naked. It’ll decrease your body temperature and, as a result, improve your quality of sleep and mood.
It builds confidence
We all have our own issues with our bodies. But did you know that sleeping naked can help improve your self-confidence?
One study found that spending more time naked decreases body image dissatisfaction.
In other words, to connect with yourself and realize that your body is a wonderland (thanks, John Mayer), strip down and get naked.
For men, it keeps your swimmers healthy
One study from the Journal of Andrology found that the type of underwear men wear can impact their sperm count and fertility.
Tighter-fitting underwear creates more heat in the groin area and damages sperm.
For men, if you want to make sure your swimmers are in tip-top shape, get naked more often. Go to bed commando or at least in loose-fitting boxers.
In intimacy counselling, it’s important you look at all factors of life, including how you sleep.
Who knew that sleeping in the nude would be the ticket to improving your overall health and intimacy?
