Sleeping with or without clothes is an argument that has been going for a long time. Should i sleep with clothes on or without clothes on?

Well, we have the answer for you, you should definitely sleep without clothes, and we have scientific reasons to back our answer.

  1. You will get better sleep- According to The American Academy of Sleep Medicine, your body temperature naturally declines as a part of your Circadian Rhythm as you sleep deeply. Wearing anything could disrupt this natural drop in temperature and, as a result, disrupt your body’s sleep cycle. Disruption in the natural decline of body temperature is also directly linked to insomnia. If you can’t cool down, you’re going to sleep horribly. By skipping clothes, you’re really just helping your overall sleep improve. That’s just science. 

  2. You can air out your lady parts- Jennifer Landa, MD, author of The Sex Drive Solution for Women says sleeping naked is healthy for your downstairs lady parts, because your vagina has a climate similar to a tropical rainforest, it can be a breeding ground for bacteria and yeast. By ditching underwear and pajamas, you allow your vagina the much needed aeration it requires to stay dry and healthy. And, as we all know, a healthy vagina is a happy one.

  3. You’ll feel sexier-Sleeping naked is simply sexy. Waking up without pajamas in the way automatically puts you in a sexy state of mind. It also means you’re comfortable enough with yourself to let it all hang out. A more confident you is a more beautiful you and not just to yourself, but also to others.

  4. You’ll reduce your belly size- If you opt for sleeping nude, you could reduce the fat around your belly and even lower your cholesterol. According to the Huffington Post, your body cools down at night, increasing your growth hormones while simultaneously decreasing your levels of cortisol, which will result in “healthy sleep patterns.” The perfect night’s sleep would be comprised of two cycles: the first has your body recuperating with lower cortisol levels and the second sees your body working to increase these levels in preparation for the next day so that you might have energy when you wake up. If your sleep is interrupted (e.g. because of your uncomfortable pajamas), your body will naturally produce more cortisol than usual; the excess, in turn, is known to catalyze your appetite.

  5. Get ready for a lot more sex- If you sleep naked, you’re going to have more sex. It’s just logical. According to Dr. Landa, 'sleeping naked encourages sex and sexier relationships are happier relationships.' Naturally, with more sex, you and your partner’s intimacy will only increase — especially when the hormone Oxytocin is introduced into the situation.Oxytocin, as the Huffington Post notes, reduces stress levels, lowers your risk of depression and leads to a load of other health benefits that might seem completely unrelated to you and your partner naked spooning. Who knew being naked could “reduce intestinal inflammation”? Besides, if you have no clothing barriers, what barricade do you even have?
