2. He Sleeps Nude
"Sleeping naked is my escape from the everyday grind."
'- Albert, 29, singer/songwriter
I love the cool feel of the sheets against my body and the sense of freedom sleeping naked gives me. Plus... it's easier to have sex! It's easier in the middle of the night; it's easier in the morning. The ritual undressing is already done. I can just roll over, and it happens.
I started sleeping naked in my late teens, after an older woman seduced me and showered me with compliments about my body. It gave me tremendous confidence, and from then on, I didn't want to cover up. I also find pajamas really uncomfortable: They're too warm and restrict my movement. In fact, I barely ever even cover up with a bathrobe.
But my nude habits have gotten me into trouble. About three years ago, I was dating a woman from a conservative family. Due to a failure in communication, we didn't know her parents (who were visiting) had returned home. Late at night, I went to the refrigerator naked, of course '- and when I turned around, her mother was standing there and started screaming!
Afterward, my girlfriend and I laughed about it, and luckily, her mom never brought it up. So I didn't let that event change my PJ (or lack thereof) practice. Besides, if people can't deal with nudity, so be it. They're missing out on a great feeling '- and a lot of fun!
3. He Sleeps in T-shirt and Boxers
"Women like my body, and I think my bed-wear showcases it well."
'- Roger, 25, actor/model
I actually slept naked up until about six years ago '- the night I slept through a fire drill in my college dorm. When I finally awoke to find my floor evacuated, I ran full-speed out of my building with only a pillow to shield me. I didn't realize it was just a drill until I came dashing out of my dorm butt-naked to be greeted by all my neighbors hanging out on the street. I decided then that it was safer to wear clothing to bed.
Next I went through a tightie-whitie phase, but I got negative feedback. Once, a girl stopped short in the middle of making out with me, pointed at my briefs, and asked, "What are those?" Then she went and got a pair of her own shorts for me to put on!
Now, I just go the safe boxers-and-T-shirt route. I usually wear plain-old white Hanes boxers, but I also have Calvin Klein ones and some patterned shorts with things like polar bears or Miller Lite logos on them.
I even have a glow-in-the-dark pair that say "No no no!" in the light and "Yes yes yes!" in the dark '- but I only wear those if I'm out of clean underwear.
It's the T-shirt on top that's really the most critical, though. I just can't wear a tank top with a woman; a muscular guy in a tight tank looks too intimidating.
