Your Sperm Quality Improves

Happily, for men, they may reap more benefits when it comes to sleeping naked. A higher temperature in the scrotum is often associated with poor semen quality in men. Wearing tight-fitting clothes and underwear during the day and at night can increase the scrotal temperature further. This may, in turn, affect sperm quality and reproductive health in men.

You Get A Happier Sex Life

Sleeping naked can make for a better sex life. Of course, you didn’t need us to tell you that. Here’s the science. Skin-to-skin touching is a major trigger for oxytocin, the love or cuddle hormone that floods you with affection for your partner.

A Cotton USA survey on 1,000 Britons finds that couples who sleep naked are happy in love, compared to those who wear pajamas, nighties, or onesies to bed. Oxytocin being a good stress-buster can also keep cortisol in check and fight its fattening effects.

Who May Not Want To Go Naked

Your sleepwear plays it role in giving the body thermal insulation as well as a certain degree of comfort. For anyone with sensitive skin who may find problems with letting their skin come in direct contact with bed linen and duvets, sleeping naked may not be a good idea.

Older adults or those with declining muscle mass or low basal metabolic rate could also experience discomfort without sleepwear.

Ultimately, whether you shed your clothes or happily don your pajamas or floaty nightwear is a personal choice that depends on your own variable heat and the sleeping microclimate in your home.
