Men Find Pajamas Sexier than Lingerie, Survey
If you're looking for something sexy to wear to bed, put on a pair of pajamas.
A new poll revealed that men find women in pajamas more enticing than those who wear lacy lingerie or nothing at all.
On the other hand, the survey revealed that women preferred their men wear boxers or underwear to bed.
The poll, which was conducted by memory foam mattress company Ergoflex, found 37 percent of men said that a pair of pajamas was the sexiest thing their girlfriend or wife could wear in bed. Of the men who picked pajamas, 55 percent explained that they liked pajamas because it makes women look "cute" in the bedroom and 21 percent found the modesty of pajamas appealing.
The second sexiest thing to wear to bed was skimpy lingerie. The poll found that 32 percent of male respondents said that they preferred their ladies to wear something scanty to bed.
Around 27 percent of men believed that wearing a nightgown was the best nighttime attire, and 22 percent believed nothing was sexier than seeing their girlfriends or wives sleep in men's clothing. Only around 16 percent of men said that they liked their women sleeping in the nude.
The poll revealed that women would rather see their boyfriends of husbands in just boxers or underwear, with 35 percent of women saying that that was the sexiest thing a man could wear to bed.
The poll, which involved 1,912 men and women over the age of 18, found that 70 percent of men and 78 percent of women prioritized comfort over attractiveness when choosing nighttime attire. However, 49 percent of people in the survey said that a partner had complained about their bedroom attires in the past.
"Comfort should be paramount when it comes to bed wear, as what you wear can seriously affect the quality of the night's sleep you get," said Jed MacEwan, Managing Director of Ergoflex UK, according to Daily Mail.
"Temperature, movement restrictions or an uncomfortable fit can all have a negative impact on the quality of your sleep, causing you to toss and turn as your body struggles to find an adequate comfort level," MacEwan said. "Temperature in particular is vital, as the body needs to be able to cool to a certain point before sleep can take place, and it's also vital you're not too hot or cold during the night."
"It's therefore more important than you might think to choose your bed wear wisely," he said. It's good to see that so many men consider full pajama sets to be more attractive- particularly for those who take their partner's preferences into consideration. Choosing a good-quality set of pajamas made from natural material like cotton is a great way to ensure the optimum temperature for great sleep."
