    This is a survey and also I am interested on what you think about..

    What are the effects, both good and bad, if boys sleep at night shirtless if:

    a. the room is in normal temperature?
    b. if the room is colder than normal?
    c. if the room is warm or hot?
    d. if the bed is cotton or others?

    "shirtless"- this term means that no upper clothing is applied on the body.

    also share other perspectives related to the topic.
    Is there such a reason why they do such stuff?

    As a boy I do it for comfort, I am comfortable because I feel light and free.

    and please answer the poll...

    climax, do you have any hypotheses of your own? Usually when you're conducting a study like this, you have some idea about what you think will happen, and why. Then you take a survey like this to see if you are right or not. So what do you think?
    Man can will nothing unless he has first understood that he must count on no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth.
    ~Jean-Paul Sartre

    OK If its about 20+ Degrees c I will not wear a pjama top. If its really hot, say 27 plus I will not wear any pjama bottoms. And if its REALLY hot like last summer. I will be naked, with the bed sheets back. So...

    A: No, I wear on average a shirt but not buttoned.
    Befinatley not, and definatley buttoned up.
    C: Yes.
    D: Depends if the material has conducted the temperature.

    PS I'd like to see the hypothesis if you've got one too. And any methods towards the study (if any) wouldn't go a miss . What does all what I've said matter?

    Revealing that before the close of the survey could bias the results though.

    I think it is very bad for your health to wear clothes in bed.

    For example they are a great hindrance in moments in passion and you could end up strangling yourself in trying to get things off quickly or break your nails on a button.

    Much better for everyone to be completely naked in bed :-D

    I've always slept shirtless since I could make up my own mind about it.

    It could be personal nocturnal metabolism. If I drink much water before bed, my body sweats it out. If I eat before bed, my body burns it off.


    a. the room is in normal temperature?
    This may be too warm. Humans may be adapted to sleep with temperature cooler than daytime. Makes sense doesn't it?

    b. if the room is colder than normal?
    A blanket will keep you from freezing. Seems that even while sleeping we manage a blanket somehow, to regulate heat. Personally I prefer a bedroom cold enough to shiver if I throw the blanket off.

    c. if the room is warm or hot?
    Then stew in a puddle of sweat. Yuck.

    d. if the bed is cotton or others?
    Cotton sheets are superb at wicking moisture away from the body. Residue from evaporated sweat remains buried within the fibres and away from the skin.



    There are a lot of cultural conventions around bedding, we might reassess.

    A raised bed frame is a technology invented, firstly, to raise the sleeper above filth and vermin, and secondly, to keep above the freezing floor drafts common in creaky old uninsulated houses. Raised beds today, for most people, are unnecessary furniture.

    A big overstuffed pillow looks decadent but it is murder to the spine.

    An ordinary-thickness futon only works on a springy (tatami) floor. Otherwise too hard. A thick futon is too bulky and won't get beat clean and aired out often if ever - it will accumulate sweat salts and oils... odors. In any case if one sleeps sweaty the futon will be trash in no time.

    Mothers may impose naive bedtime garb on their boys. Many boys will at some age try something else - it may be more comfortable.

    If your legs are cool your upper body won't heat up much.

    And as Absum! cautions; mind the collars, harnesses, and other gear that might cause strangulation.

    Sometimes strangulation and collar tightening is preferable to sleep

    Especially when it's a hot night

    Pong, all of that to say if you wear a top or not in bed. You are certainly the opposite of your name. Still, I wish I had as much free time as you :P.

    From another thread I learned Climax is a young teen developing a disturbing rash of acne on the body. So the extra info I hope helpful.

    you see my school has no not employed a Uniform rule and its general attire or civilian attire.

    I have happen to pass by a group of boys inside the school shirtless with bags of course. I was wondering why are they doing that? Isnt it embarrassing doing it there?

    So I propose.... Is it necessary, and so I ask is it the same with any of you?

    Because they are posturing like young men do and showing off their 'manly' bodies in the hope that some girl will swoon over those bulging biceps and develop a crush and they might be closer to the possibility of having some leggy over?

    Come on, we pride our intellects but when it comes to sex and sexuality we are in reality no better than a peacock and it's feathers or a gorilla beating its chest!

    Climax, if I remember right you show some pretty bad acne when you take your shirt off. Now it seems like you're complaining about other boys exposing their skin. It's not fair?

    Don't worry about it. If you want to look good, be attractive, the main thing is to be noticed. Don't hide. If you're comfortable in your body and keep moving your own way without care for others' petty judgments, a funny thing happens: people sense your attitude and they respect you, and you actually look good in their eyes. But if you act ugly people sense that too and they'll believe your message you are ugly. Anyway, you can't let what you have rule what you do.

    I rarely sleep shirtless.... I rarely sleep without my clothes on from the day... sometimes I will sleep shirtless if I have rocked out with my cockadoodle doodle out, but thats just then....


    I am self conscious about my body, my weight, and appearence... I am 25 and have begun to grow hair in places that were never there when I was a teenager and was HAWT! = ) Also have begun to loose hair... in various places...

    I am out of shape and overweight... and truthfully I feel that my appearence(naked) to the person I will end up in bed with would only make them burn themselves alive from the horror they would experience.


    I have been effected by mass media... = (

    Hair is the one thing we notice change during our lifetimes. When you get older you get more hairy! (why is that? perhaps to keep warm?)
    Older women get hair sprouting from places that should only be reserved for men! Which is why waxing salons will NEVER decline!

    If somebody loves you then it shouldn't matter to them.

    If it does....then they are shallow so kick them out of bed!

    i sleep naked, no matter what temperature, i have done since i was a boy. if i am cold i put more bedding on. if it is really cold i will get into bed with a dressing gown on then take it off as ssoon as the bed warms.

    i dont like the feeling of clothes when i am sleeping, i get all twisted up in them. it is so much more comfortable being free.
