You might say it’s gross or unclean to sleep naked, but that is a myth. It is healthier, better for sleep, and promotes both vaginal health and sperm health.
One poll found that 58% of people preferred to sleep in the nude, with more men than women preferring the “commando” style for sleeping.
Underwear does provide protection and is hygienic, helping to wick moisture and sweat if you sweat a lot when you sleep. Or you can wear your pajamas without undies.
Others like the free feeling they get with nothing binding them at all. So really, its all about your comfort level, which is your preference.
6. Underwear Traps Moisture
Doctors believe that if underwear is too tight or made from synthetic fibers, it can trap moisture and encourage the growth of bacteria or yeast. This could be the cause of urinary tract infections, vaginal infections, and yeast or Candida growth. You might consider choosing a healthier fiber for your undergarments.
5. The Health of the Female and Male Organs
Sleeping naked is good for women, helping to dry the moisture of the vagina. Recent studies show that tight-fitting underwear on men lowers sperm counts, so no undies is better. It also helps to keep the testicles cooler for better sperm health. Fewer undies improve the circulation around vital sex organs.
4. Reduced Body Temperature Activates Fat
You are cooler with no clothes on, and sleep actually drops your body temperature. Cooler temps are relaxing, and they activate your brown fat to burn more calories by speeding up your metabolism. It also reduces the cortisol hormone, which helps you lose weight.
3. May Improve Your Sex Life
Sleeping naked can improve your sex life if you sleep with a partner. The free feeling does have benefits. Skin to skin contact increases the hormone oxytocin, which decreases stress, builds better relationships, and improves general well-being.
2. Saves Money
No pajamas to buy, although you may have to wash your sheets more often depending on how often you enjoy sex.
1. Reduces the Effects of Aging
When you are sleeping at temperatures below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, your body can better regulate your melatonin and growth hormones. These hormones are essential for health and preventing aging.
Statistics show that sleeping naked is preferred by about 65% of Millennials, 45% of Gen Xers, and 39% of Baby Boomers.
