Sleeping Like This Will Give You Sexy Dreams

Sometimes dreams are just dreams. Put away your wife’s little book of dream interpretations, forget about noting down all the details in the morning so that you can remember it. Tonight, changing the way you sleep is going to help you have the best sex of your dreams.

A 2012 study published in Dreaming surveyed nearly 700 people to understand their posture, their personalities, and their sleeping habits. It looked at various details, such as which side of the bed respondents sleep on, how they wake up, which position they find most comfortable to encourage sleep, and so on. It evaluated the content of dreams and the relationship to posture – and the one result we’re all interested in is this: Men, it seems, are more prone to having sexy dreams when they sleep on their stomachs with their arms stretched out above their heads.

Not only were the dreams super sexy: the dreams included celebrity kinks, bondage, and other fantasy sex scenes with a partner. If you’ve thought about it, you could dream about it – and it might be the best sex of your dreams.

Researchers haven’t yet identified the link between sleeping position and sexual dreams, but the study author Associate Professor Calvin Kai-Ching Yu suspects that it’s due largely to the restricted breathing (as your face is down or to the side) combined with the stimulatory pressure of pressing your genitals into the mattress.

Unfortunately, swapping up your sleep routines is not all a bed of roses. Yu pointed out that if you typically sleep on your back or in another position, swapping your sleep routine could disrupt your sleep patterns. If it’s too much of a shock for your subconscious to handle, you could get sleep apnea or nightmares instead of the more desirable trysts with Bérénice Marlohe.

In today's world, people's eating and exercise patterns have changed, and it is often lifestyle that is the cause of many diet-related illnesses. I believe that each of us is unique – what works for one does not help another. What is more, it can even be harmful. I am interested in food psychology, which studies a person's relationship with their body and food, explains our choices and desires for specific products, the difficulty of maintaining optimal body weight, as well as the influence of various internal and external factors on appetite. I'm also an avid vintage car collector, and currently, I'm working on my 1993 W124 Mercedes. You may have stumbled upon articles I have been featured in, for example, in Cosmopolitan, Elle, Grazia, Women's Health, The Guardian, and others.
