Partner sleeping naked...thoughts?

What are your thoughts on partners sleeping naked? I've been dating a guy for two months, and he has has told me he cannot sleep with clothes. We are both single parents and just haven't had the chance to spend a full night together. I dont know why but it just makes me feel odd thinking about it realistically. He's a warm, wonderful, sexy guy but the thought of cuddling/spooning while im wearing pjs and he's naked just seems strange. I know its really common and I'm probably being silly but I'm keen to hear what other women think on the topic...?

I really thought your issue was going to involve children in the house or coming in.
I know plenty of nudie sleepers. I don't get how him having clothes on or not, in bed under the covers, negatively affects you. But if it's a deal breaker, know that he won't change.

Yeah my hubby is a nude sleeper. Also him and the kids just love being named (with underwear) during the day...so weird! However I don’t think it’s strange or a deal breaker if he wants to sleep nude.

I’m a nudie sleeper. It’s so not a big deal at all. I used to keep a nightie next to the bed in case the kids came in. But seriously, it’s no big deal. I assume you have sex with the guy?? So why would him being naked be an issue? So what if his naked body touches your pjs?

It's a hygeine thing for me (not knocking any nude sleepers - do you by all means). I just don't want naked, sweaty man booty all over my sheets 😂

All my partners have slept naked! I rarely have because I'm scared of a fire in the middle of the night and I would have to run out in what i'm wearing 😂

This actually happened to me when I was a teenager! Our house was on fire, myself my sister and my Dad all asleep at the time & next thing I remember is being woken suddenly & thrown out the window (into the fish pond, single story house) naked! I ran back into the burning house to get my boxer shorts and singlet and put them on before the CFA got there. We lost absolutely everything. Not insured. I think of it now and the the things I could have grabbed instead, but I didn't think about anything else in that moment except for not letting the fire brigade seeing me naked, it's crazy

I'm a nudie sleeper! Hubby is a jocks sleeper :D If my son is having an up/down night I will wear undies and have a tshirt next to the bed in case I need to jump up.

My partner and I sleep naked. All the time even in winter. Kids sleep in their own beds every night. If I do happen to have to pull our toddler into bed I chuck a nighty on and keep him on my side of the bed or between the top sheet and the doonas. As long as you’re aware and he’s ready with a pair of shorts to put on beside the bed if he needs to get up in a hurry I don’t think there’s a problem with it.

I cant stand the feeling of clothes on when I sleep. I find it restrictive and uncomfortable. Things ride up and get twisted. Even undies crawl up my ass. Each person is different in how they're comfortable. Seems like such a silly thing to have an issue with. Theres no way I'd change how I sleep for someone, cos fact is, I wouldn't be able to sleep if I had clothes on.

My hubby would never wear clothes if he had a choice.

My kids also sleep naked.

I wear clothes because, what if something happens during the night.

I think it would be different if other children are in the house.

Personal preference maybe ?
My hubby always sleeps naked .. I often go half half Incase I need to jump up for the kids and in the dark they wouldn’t be able to tell anyway , also cos we have my bil living with us so want to avoid bumping into him too haha
I think the age of your kids might be a factor .. are they younger and wouldn’t really even think twice if walked in on you both or are they older and would freak
Out ? Can you set house rules in terms of them not coming in your room without knocking first or something when he’s over and he keeps shorts or pants next to the bed Incase they are needed ....
as for sleeping next to someone naked that might be worth some self reflection why that is an issue ... are you comfy in your own skin ? Are you worried about him taking advantage or you accidentally touching him .... if your sleeping together are you just not comfortable with nudity in general !?
I do think this is your issue not his though .

I think it’s odd, especially when you have children in the house. I wouldn’t be comfortable with it. I wouldn’t allow another man to sleep naked in my house with my children in the house. This would mean he would get up in the night to use to the bathroom etc naked. It doesn’t sit right with me. Even though it’s completely innocent, I think out of respect for you and your children he could wear boxer shorts weather he likes it or not. Go with your gut, you said it’s odd. I love sleeping in the nude too but I certainly wouldn’t do it at a new partners house straight up with kids. It’s for me and my husband only and in my room. I wouldn’t allow another person who wasn’t my kids father to. Maybe a long way down the track and the kids are comfortable and there is a lock on the door but for the safety and privacy of your kids it’s not right at this stage of your relationship. Just my personal opinion and how I would feel about it.
