Southampton is a hot spot for wanting to sleep nude

Daily Echo: City loves getting naked in bed City loves getting naked in bed

WE may be heading into the cold depths of winter, but there’s nothing the people of Southampton like better than getting naked.

Yes sleeping in the all together is a bed time habit some of the city’s more liberal residents just can’t get enough of.

According to a survey, Southampton is one of the country’s hot spots for going to bed in the buff.

 

Almost 40 cent of Sotonians admitted preferring to snooze in their birthday suits, more than the national average.

Middle-aged men are leading the way in stripping off before slipping between the sheets, according to the study by hotel chain Travelodge.

The only places in the country where more people nod off in the nude are the Yorkshire cities, York, Sheffield and Leeds.

According to experts there are lots of benefits to sleeping naked.

They say the body naturally feels more relaxed and without the restriction of clothing leads to a long deep sleep that helps it regenerate itself.

But sales of pyjamas are unlikely to drop as the research also revealed that four out of ten adults get changed into their PJs as soon as they get home from work.

And one in five women confessing that they spend more time in their PJs than in their normal clothing.

The South Coast has a more temperate climate so I suspect that may have something to do with it.

The average temperature difference can be as much as 8 degrees F in December!

Can't beat the buff. PJ's too restrictive.

As someone that han't worn a stitch in bed for best part of 35 years, it is so natural a thing to do,,
No disturbed sleep by creases in PJ's digging into your skin, lets the skin breathe, and shares body warmth.
I have slept in many parts of the UK like this and outside temp has nothing to do with it.
After all most have our heating set a suitable indoor temp, which would be fairly constant north to south.
For those who haven't tried I would seriously suggest giving it a go for a month, and see how much better you sleep, and less clogged our pores are.

I'm a little puzzled how Travelodge know anything about sleeping habits in their different hotels to be able to make these statements - CCTV in the bedrooms? I hope not!

September 2010 "The Sun" published the results of a nationwide survey that claimed about two-thirds of the UK population slept naked. Who to believe?

You are right about the health benefits, though.
