    My fan doesn't really work very well anymore

    so it's just the noise now. Typical, it worked fine in the winter when it was freezing cold -_-

    Or, if not a fan, something to provide

    white-noise. Completely dark, and the cooler the better. :)

    When its super hot, then I would put

    that AC or fan on. But when its cold as a ice cube, I grab a giant blanket and sleep with it.

    Feeling a cool Breeze

    while dosing off is a great feeling.. Also, then noise of the fan keeps me from thinking too much which usually keeps me awake.

    It's Suffocating

    I feel like I can't breathe when the fan's not on. I like the swishing noise and when it's not on, the silence suffocates me. You can hear every little thing moving in the night - starting from the tick-tock of the clock to the occasional car driving in the street outside. I can...

    must be the 'white noise' it creates

    but I find having the fan on comforting when I want to get to sleep

    Even when It's in the middle of the day.

    Ever have a sneeze, yawn, grunt of pain, cough, then topping it off with a burp I pain? They're not fun

    In the summer months here in Vegas,

    it gets over 100 degrees at times. I love having a fan on when I am in bed sleeping. I love sleeping nude as well, with my husband because of the heat here.

    Cause it's hot, and if its not on,

    I can hear everything. Every little noise lol my own breathing, my pulse, household noises. It would literally keep me up all through the night.

    Fan Of Any Fan

    Ever since I was little I needed to have a fan to sleep. As a child when I slept the noise would sometimes irritate me, but I felt like I needed it to fall asleep. I am prone to hypnagogic sensitivity and phenomena, so as a kid I felt like if a fan was pointed at me it would keep...

    It's mostly about the quiet noise

    that slightly blocks out anything going on ( I'm a light sleeper )

    I am such a picky sleeper.

    I wake up very easily and my body temperature goes up when I sleep. I go to sleep most nights with the fan on and blankets snug and comfortable but in a few hours I am sweating blanket comes off. Another hour I need to put another fan on. I am up every few hours just because I...

    My fan keeps me alive in away.

    .. It blows air in my face while I sleep. I have sleep apnea and everytime I wake up from naps I feel short of breath, and my heart is pumping. Ugh My heart also physically hurts... Not how I wanted to spend my night.

    This may sound silly

    but I can't sleep unless my room is cool, but I need a blanket to be comfortable. Seems contradictory.

    Sleeping Without A Fan... Blows

    It's not so much the air that I need. But, summer or winter, I need the noise. I even take one on trips and often get a strange look from airport security.

    Turn The Fan...Back On!!!!

    It's a big ****** deal. I can not even for a second think about sleeping without a fan on. When I was younger I would have to bring a fan with me to sleepovers. If the fan shuts off at night...i might as well stay up. I guess it all started when I was little and I didn't like...
