65% Of Millennials Sleep Naked
According to a new survey, two-thirds of Millennials report sleeping in the nude, the poll by the mattress review site MattressAdvisor.com found.
Joe Mercurio, a project manager with Mattress Advisor, said he stumbled across several articles suggesting that people sleep better without clothes – and he decided to find out more.
He surveyed over 1,000 people across the country, 58 percent of whom said they sleep in the nude. Nude sleepers also report better sleep quality than pajama-wearers.
Not surprisingly, men are more likely to sleep naked than women – though more than half of women still report sleeping without any clothes. Only 39 percent of Boomers sleep in the buff, compared with nearly 65 percent of Millennials, the survey found.
Nearly 70 percent of respondents who sleep naked said they do so because they’re more comfortable without clothes. About 58 percent said nude sleeping was relaxing, and 54 percent said it improves their sleep. (Roughly 15 percent said they sleep naked to keep their genitals “free and happy.”)
For those who prefer pajamas, their reasons ranged from staying warm, to anxiety about being seen, to “that’s how I was raised.”
