Sleeping with me

Do you sleep on your back, your stomach, or your side?

A recent study by sleep expert Chris Idzikowski, (like u give a damn abt who he is)director of the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, suggested a correlation between six common sleeping positions and the personality traits of the sleepers themselves.

Preferred sleeping positions are seen as a sort of subconscious body language that reflects our inner traits. The study was commissioned by a large hotel group.

The most common sleeping positions (and corresponding personality) identified were:

Fetal Position (41%) Thats me,darn,i belong to the majority 41%! Curled up on your side, holding the pillow. The most popular sleeping position, this one was favored by 51% of the women in the study. The personality of these sleepers tends to be shy and sensitive, though they may present a tough exterior to the world


Soldier Position (8%) Flat on your back with arms at your sides. Indicates a quiet and reserved personality who sets high standards.


Starfish Position (5%) Lying on your back with arms and legs outstretched. Indicates a good listener who makes friends easily, but prefers not to be the center of attention.


Freefall Position (7%) Flat on your stomach with arms at the head or ears. Indicates a brash and gregarious exterior who may inwardly be nervous and sensitive to criticism.


Log Position (15%) On your side with legs outstretched and arms at your sides. Indicates a social, easygoing personality


Yearner Position (13%) Similar to the log, but with arms outstretched. Said to indicate a suspicious and cynical personality.


Professor Idzikowski went on to say that the freefall position aided digestion, while the starfish and soldier sleeping positions were more likely to lead to snoring and an overall bad nights' sleep.


But it may be as difficult to change as your personality itself; fewer than five percent of people slept in a different sleeping position every night.

Ben, you are a bold boy!

My usu position is on left side, w left hand stuck under Silba's tummy. It's not really my favorite, but it's hers, and one wants one's partner to be happy, no?

May all your bedtime hours be full of bliss, whether spent sleeping or doing something more sensual, such as squeezing the stuffing out of your favorite bolster!

As always, lotsa luv!

maybe, you should demonstrate all the 6 positions so that we can better appreciate ....haha....think mine is the same as yours (majority) ...haha

my qn is does pink parlous serve guys ...cos, it sounds like for 'ladies' only ...or maybe, selected guys like your goodselves...? cos, i know some shops are very mindful of male/men customers.

with regards to ur enquires on pink parlour,yes they do have male customers,quite a handful of them.In fact,the reason i blogged abt it was to encourage more male to head down pink parlour cusalot of guys are prob like u,they think its for female which is not true:)
