    Imaginary Man

    Alone, I cuddle my pillow as I fall asleep. It's a mixture of comfort and... Sexual anticipation.

    Well, I Have to Have Something to Snuggle With...

    Yes, I reluctantly hug my pillow while I sleep because I don't have anything else I can snuggle up to in my bed.  My husband and I sleep in separate rooms - have for awhile now.  My bed is king size and do you know, I still just sleep on the one side with the pillow...

    My Big Body Pillow

    I have a body pillow that I cannot sleep without. It keeps my back and legs from aching, thus ensuring a more restful night's sleep.

    My Pillow

    It's always been there for me when I felt lonely and worthless. I may have shed tears on it but when that would be over i would always wake up happy to be holding it in my arms. :)

    Dirty Pillows

    I am totally, butt-crazy in love with pillows! I've experienced more intimacy with pillows than with other humans. I've spent numerous nights in heated embrace with many different pillows. I'm not loyal. I'm not picky if options are limited. My body needs the touch of a pillow...

    I Feel Comfortable While Hugging A Pillow During My Sleep.

    It makes me feel so relaxed, and protected. I am very freaky when it comes to my pillow like I don't want someone to step on it, I don't want it to fall on the floor and I don't want anybody but me to touch it. I admit, I imagine its my ultimate crush and I kiss it most of the...

    I Hug My Pillow While Sleeping

    I love hugging my pillows. I have lots of pillows on my bed. I love clutering them together and surrounding myself with them. It feels so warm and relaxing. I love hugging my pillow during the day sometimes too, especially when I'm depressed or anxious. Pillows are Amazing!!!

    Because...

    It's like I need to have someone there with me in the darkness protecting me from the creatures of the night. Wanting to be in someone's caring and loving embrace. But alas I do not have what I wish I did, and thus have to make the best out of what I do.

    Habit

    It'S So Comforting

    I have one of those round pillows like in the thumbnail, and I sleep with it every night. Not only is it comfortable, but it gives me a sense of security for some reason. When I get really sad I like to squeeze it hard as I hug it, and it makes me feel a bit better, maybe because...

    I never really understood

    why I do this. Its always for different reasons but no matter what I can never fall asleep without hugging it. Sometimes its because I picture im hugging my "boyfriend" and sometimes its just to mufle my crying...or both. Its kind of depressing to think about :(
