I always thought men likes to sleep closer to whichever side is cooler... like next to a window, fan, etc.

I always end up next to a radiator or something...

Which way are you looking at the bed?From the foot, I would be on the left, from the head I would be on the right.

vote-for4vote-against

I have always been a right side person myself. Don't know why, just have been.

vote-for5vote-against

On the right. When I was on active duty I slept on the side with the phone (to many early morning or late night calls). I sleep on the right side (but the phone is across the room from the foot of the bed).

@packmanv29 I always look at it from the head, as if I was lying in bed.

If I'm last to bed it means the absolute edge of the bed, curled to fetal position with one arm out to catch my eventual fall. She's big and mean and I dare not wake her.

I sleep on the side closest to the door.

vote-for4vote-against

I sleep on the side closest to the window.

i sleep on whatever side is closest to the alarm clock, right now it's left side. could easily be the right side if the alarm is there.

I try to maintain position on the left side for the Summer and Winter Solstice. Then, for each Solar Ingress, I switch to the right side during the Spring and Fall Equinox.

vote-for5vote-against

right...who wants to sleep on the wrong side???

vote-for4vote-against

Dead center most nights, but on the nights where I only have half a bed, I'm a right side of the bed as you face the ceiling (left side if you are at the foot facing the bed)

I'm too tall so I have to sleep diagonally.

Top side. Tired sleeping underneath but woke up too often with pancake hair.

I believe the tradition is for the man to sleep closest to the door to protect us frail females from any danger. I don't care which side of the bed I sleep but I have to sleep on my right ear...I'm deaf in my left ear and my husband snores :)

vote-for5vote-against

Left side. Because that is where my wife decided I would sleep.

@ohcheri: Same here. Years of blowdryer use has lessened my hearing in my left ear
In days of old, there'd be a broadsword on the floor too.
Sounds like your Mister might need a CPAP. It's been a miracle for us.

@lavikinga: I had to Google CPAP, yikes! He doesn't snore that badly but we do have a relative that wears something like that. We only know this because we stopped by early one morning and he had marks all over his face so we (being super nosy!) had to ask why.

No broadsword but we do have a handy baseball bat :)

Under.

I am to scared to sleep on top. There is a troop of monkeys that stare at me all night long. I am so afraid they may want a banana in the middle of the night.

I sleep on the side closest to the bathroom.(sigh)

vote-for5vote-against

One quarter of the right side, top third (in the fetal position). Now, the wife sleeps on 3/4 of the left and the 65 pound labrador retriever prefers the right bottom two-thirds!

vote-for4vote-against

I sleep everywhere! Just sprawl out like I own the damn thing! (which i do)

So whatever makes me comfortable at the time, thats where I'll be!

I sleep on the left side with both male and female partners, so make of that what you will.

(My most frequent partner has "must be able to escape" issues, and the right side happens to be the outside edge.)

vote-for5vote-against

OPur bed is like a jigsaw puzzle, I crrently sleep on the left by the door, my girlfiend on the right, the lab in the middle (who has to touch both of us) and a cat between my legs. We have another cat, but she uses this time to cause trouble.

vote-for2vote-against

left side if you are in the bed. right side if you are standing at the foot of the bed looking at it.

vote-for7vote-against

Whichever side you mom isn't on.

Bazinga.

When you sleep on a twin, it's hard to pick a side.

vote-for3vote-against

@gement: i made a lot of things of....LMAO

vote-for4vote-against

Yes. My bed is so small (or I'm so fat), I'm on both sides simultaneously.

vote-for2vote-against

Left side. Might shoot down the "man sleeps closer to the door" theory since my wife actually sleeps on the side closer to the bedroom door, but I'm an arm's reach away from the wall that displays my small sword collection.

@ohcheri:

Without CPAP (even after surgery, which made my snoring much quieter) my girlfriend (a very light sleeper) cannot sleep in the same room with me. With CPAP, she claims I don't bother her at all (the CPAP machine is almost silent).

Sounds like your friend might have his mask adjusted tighter than necessary.

On a side note, loud snoring can mean Obstructive Sleep Apnea, which left untreated, kills about 5% of people with it each year. And even if it doesn't kill you outright, it can cause heart damage and other problems (high blood pressure is one). I have a pacemaker for bradycardia and A/V conduction disease that my pulmonologist believes was caused by the untreated OSA (my cardiologist says could be but doesn't matter as I have the pacemaker).

At my girlfriend's house, she sleeps on the left (facing the bed from the foot), so I get the right. (She is very left handed and wears the lefthandedness (is that even a word?) like a badge of honor. I'm mostly ambidexterous and don't really care one way or the other.)

At my place, I sleep on the left because it is closer to the door and electric outlets and has a small cabinet with clock, chargers, CPAP machine, extra ammo, etc. If it weren't for the CPAP machine, she'd go for the left at my place as well, but it doesn't make sense to move it when she stays overnight (which hasn't been that much recently due to a new puppy).

As for heat vs. cool, I keep the radiator in my bedroom completely off as the room is way way too hot with it on.

My boyfriend doesn't sleep closer to the door or the window, he wants the nightstand... I sleep on the right with him, but left if I'm alone (cause of the table)

vote-for1vote-against

It matters if im on the good or bad side of the wife that night. If im on her good side then the right but the bad side is wherever I can curl up in a ball in cry myself to sleep.
