benefits of sleeping naked

When you head off to bed at night, what do you wear? That might sound like a ridiculous question but think about it for a second. Do you grab your unsexist pair of pajamas and get cozy? Or, do you reach for something a little sexier to impress your partner when they join you? Some of you might go for another option. Why? Because there are many benefits of sleeping naked you might be unaware of!

It is both shocking and slightly understandable because our ancestors started out that way before the fig leaf came into vogue. Yet here we are, buying sleepwear worth hundreds of dollars because it’s what we were taught to do.

So why is there a new movement telling us to forego the flannel and whip out our breasts in the comfort of our bedrooms? We understand how empowering that might feel, but even we may need a little convincing.

Still, judging from the advice of many professionals, sleeping naked is actually good for your whole body and not just your privates. [Read: 15 effortless ways to look really sexy when you’re naked]

Why sleeping naked is good for you

Let’s check out some of those benefits of sleeping naked, to see if we can persuade you to let the air around your privates of an evening!

1. Airingout your vajayjay makes it healthier and cleaner

The author of “The Sex Drive Solution for Women,” Jennifer Landa, MD, says that sleeping without panties on can promote a healthier environment for your vagina. A closed-off and excessively warm environment is the perfect setting for a yeast infection, so airing it out can prevent infection. Nobody likes thrush, right?

2. The cooler you are, the better you sleep

Wearing sleepwear and a ton of blankets can be bad for your sleep cycle. Your body temperature is supposed to drop in order for you to get into an optimum state of sleep, which means that blankets and clothes might increase your temperature and disrupt your sleep. That’s not good at all, considering a lack of Z’s is both unhealthy and makes for a very unpleasant morning. So if one of the benefits of sleeping naked is a better night’s sleep, we’re down for it!

3. You’ll wake up a little younger every day

Well, not exactly–but your aging process will significantly slow down. As we sleep, we release growth hormone (a natural anti-aging substance), and when sleep is disrupted due to excessive warmth, we produce less of it and end up aging faster.

4. Your stress levels will decrease

Sleeping without clothes on is more comfortable for our body, as described above. Because we’re sleeping soundly, our stress hormone, cortisol, also decreases. That’s super-beneficial in many aspects because stress can be extremely damaging to health. However you can decrease stress, you should do it!

5. One of the benefits of sleeping naked is better confidence

When you are naked, you are more aware of our body–and that’s a good thing. That’s why walking naked, alone, in the house doesn’t feel embarrassing at all. It feels sexy and empowering, which in turn boosts confidence levels. The more confident you are, the more you enjoy life and the happier you are.

6. Better relationships

Sleeping naked next to each other boosts your oxytocin levels. This is what scientists call the “love hormone.” When it’s at its highest levels, it promotes pair bonding, which is a scientific way of saying that you and your partner will like each other more.

7. Awesome and more frequent sex

This is also a wonderful side-effect of increased oxytocin. Researchers found that those who released more oxytocin tended to experience stronger orgasms and had decidedly more engaging sex lives. This means not only more sex, but better sex. [Read: How to make sex better – 15 ways to take it up a notch in bed]

8. Sleeping naked creates less laundry

Enough said.

9. Sleeping naked is beneficial for men too

For men, sleeping naked cools down their testes. This is the ideal environment for keeping your sperm healthy. That’s why sleeping naked is related to higher fertility rates in men. [Read: Healthy balls – 7 easy tests to keep your testicles in great shape]

10. Summer sleeping is more bearable

The majority of highly populated countries are now experiencing extreme temperature bursts during summer. If you continue to sleep naked during that period, you won’t have to suffer from hot flashes that aren’t supposed to occur prior to menopause, or at all.

11. Revs up your metabolism

Sleeping in a cooler environment allows your body to produce healthy fat that increases your metabolism. Study author Francesco S. Celi, MD says that his subjects, who slept in a chilly room, produced more brown fat – a healthy fat stored in your neck which burns your calories in order to generate body heat. Sleeping naked might produce the same effects. [Read: Women with curves – 20 ways you changed all women for the better]

12. Your immune system gets a boost

One of the best benefits of sleeping naked is getting sick less often. Having more uninterrupted sleep because you’re naked is also a great way to boost your immune system. We heal faster while we sleep, and we store enough energy to keep our healthy antibodies working.

13. You’ll be less hungry when you wake up

High levels of cortisol increase your appetite. Since sleeping naked lowers the amount of cortisol in your body, you’re less likely to feel like you need a midnight snack or an extra serving of dessert in the middle of the day, contributing to weight loss or weight management.

How to start sleeping naked tonight!

Now that you’re slightly convinced to sleep in the buff *we know we are*, here are some guidelines on how you should go about it.

1. Change your bedsheets regularly

You’ll be sleeping in the nude, so all sorts of bacteria may feast on your skin. Your privates may be cleaner, but your skin sure as heck won’t be if you don’t change your sheets every week. [Read: Sexy bedroom – 24 sex room ideas to make any room look & feel sexy]

2. Invest in some decent curtains or blinds

Unless you’re into your neighbors seeing your bare ass, then skip it.

3. Remember to lock your door

Give your roommates or housemates a fair chance. You might be pretty comfy with getting naked in your room, but someone may come in when you least expect them to. Before you turn out the light, be sure to flip the lock.

4. Make sure there aren’t any bugs in your room

It hurts enough when a bug bites your limbs. Imagine if they get to the more sensitive parts of your body. [Read: 12 naughty and devious ways to see a friend naked]

5. Place your robe and slippers near your bed

Sleeping naked is okay, but make sure you’re ready for an emergency like a fire or an earthquake. You can’t exactly run outside wearing nothing, now, can you?

6. Have a bag of clothes near your bed

If possible, pack an emergency bag as well – just in case. It might be cold outside and a robe won’t do you any good in freezing weather conditions. [Read: How to look really sexy in bed when your man comes over – a guide on sexy positions]

7. Shower regularly

Do this as often as you can, because sleeping naked may invite additional bacteria to dine on your body. Although it may seem like a significant downside, it can easily be remedied with clean sheets and a bar of soap. There are many benefits of sleeping naked, but you need to sidestep the disadvantages too!

8. Remember to moisturize

If you’re planning on sleeping naked permanently, make sure you moisturize as well. Increase your sex appeal by having smooth and silky skin. As a bonus, moisturizing will also minimize chafing.
