All My Life

I remember when I was very young I had a sleep outfit that had attached feet covers. I don't remember when I outgrew them. At about age 3 or 4 I was sleeping in an upstairs room that got very hot in summer, and the small windows were not very adequate to cool it off to sleep. Maybe if my parents didn't make us kids go to bed before the sun went down it would have been less hot. It was too hot to wear snuggle clothes to sleep upstairs all summer. Nobody had air conditioning in our town in those years. For whatever reason by age 5 I was sleeping naked on top of the sheets in front of the window. That was about 1950.

I've been sleeping naked ever since. When I was about 20 I had a woman sleep over. She slept naked too. Since then all the women who have slept over have been naked. Men and women belong together naked body to naked body.

I also sleep naked everywhere I go, hotels, camping, etc. I don't understand why anyone gets dressed to sleep. Just makes no sense to me. Carpe Diem!

Dozer, you just reminded me of a blue flannel adult size snuggle suit I used to have. It was one piece like a union suit and the legs ended in socks, or slippers, I don't know exactly what to call them, and the sleeves ended in snug cuffs around the wrists. The whole thing fit like a second skin, so it was almost as comfortable as sleeping nude. I wore it, of course, to keep warm in winter without either paying to heat the whole house or piling on heavy blankets (which my wife couldn't stand). Eventually that suit wore out, I couldn't find a replacement, ordinary pajamas would bunch up uncomfortably, and so, probably with some help from global warming, I went back to sleeping nude even in winter.

I've slept nude since the day I left home. Well, after I got out of the Navy. It makes no sense to have clothing getting twisted around you when you move in your sleep. And as you say, when it's hot in the summer, sleeping nude is soooo much cooler .... less hot I mean.
