Sleeping naked – These are the advantages of not wearing clothes at night

Most people prefer to wear comfortable pajamas or sleep in their underwear. Only around 10 percent of Germans do without clothing entirely. There are some benefits to taking off your clothes and sleeping as God created you.

Find out the benefits of sleeping naked. Then you will perhaps be able to convince yourself of this way of sleeping.

Sleeping naked makes you feel special. It feels freer to spend the night without clothes. You spend the night in harmony with your body without the adjoining fabric.

Your body will thank you by sweating less. The skin can breathe better and therefore less sweat is secreted. This is a great advantage, especially for allergy sufferers, because the sweat in the mattress provides an excellent environment for bacteria and mites. The exposure to mites will decrease and your symptoms will subside. Only if you have severe restrictions should you prefer to use allergy bed linen and use it for yourself.

There is one catch, however, in not wearing pajamas. The clothing no longer absorbs part of the moisture, but the bed linen and mattress lie directly on the skin. Therefore, the recommendation is to change the bed linen as a naked sleeper at least twice a week. Then you will be able to spend the night without clothes without any problems.


The togetherness with the partner is also expressed in how you spend the night. If you sleep in comfortable pajamas, which are comfortable but less attractive to your partner, this can affect the relationship.

If, on the other hand, you are lying in bed naked with your partner, this is a strong signal that you are satisfied with your body. Skin-to-skin, a special connection with the partner is established and thus the libido is increased.

As the body contact increases, so does sexual activity . This creates a basis for a happy basis. On the other hand, if the bedroom is slack, this can lead to frustration and tension in the relationship.

The higher intimacy speaks for a special connection and both partners meet your sexual needs. What could be nicer than spending the night naked with your partner?


Another advantage is also on the relationship level. Sleeping with your partner has some peculiarities. For example, it is said that the partners’ sleep phases adapt and their sleep behavior is influenced.

Sleeping next to your partner and waking up together in the morning ensures relaxation. This is due to the binding hormone oxytocin , which is released. This hormone reduces the effects of the stress hormone cortisol. It has a calming effect and reduces stress.

Oxytocin also has other positive properties on your body. It strengthens the immune system and can lighten the mood. Mild depression can be relieved with a partner.

If both partners are naked in bed and spend the night in close physical contact, sex is not necessary to create this intimacy. Due to the joint bond , the hormone is already released and the positive effect occurs. This effect is intensified by sleeping naked.


Sleep is not only important for health. During sleep, the body’s regeneration processes also take place and harmful influences are reduced. A study has therefore investigated whether sleeping naked has a positive effect on the aging process.

The influence of free radicals was essential here . These are substances that attack body cells and accelerate cell aging. When smoking, a large number of free radicals are produced, which cause smokers to age faster.

During sleep, the hormone melatonin ensures that free radicals are bound and rendered harmless . Melatonin is the sleep hormone that is created under the influence of darkness.

If you sleep naked and feel good doing it, the quality of your sleep will increase. You release more melatonin and your sleep will be undisturbed. As a result, sleeping naked indirectly means that your skin ages more slowly and you look more relaxed overall.

So there is definitely something to the myth of the “beauty sleep”. If clothing bothers you, then sleep naked in order to use the positive effects of melatonin for you.


The body uses fewer calories while sleeping. The metabolism is reduced to a minimum and is primarily aimed at regeneration. However, if you sleep without clothes, the metabolism is stimulated. This is because your body is more busy maintaining body temperature.

To speed up the metabolism, the temperature in the bedroom should be less than 21 degrees. If you still do without a blanket, your body will have to do more work to regulate your body temperature.

This could be helpful for burning extra calories. Be careful, however, that it doesn’t get too cold. Then you could run the risk of freezing and weakening the immune system. The risk of catching a cold increases and you achieve exactly the opposite.


Body odor is mainly formed when the sweat remains on either the skin or clothing. Bacteria on the skin ensure that sweat starts to smell unpleasant. If you sleep naked, on the other hand, this offers several advantages.

For one thing, you will excrete less sweat. Your skin will find it easier to breathe and your body temperature will be regulated more easily.

On the other hand, it is harder for the sweat to collect on the skin or clothing. Since you do not wear your pajamas anyway, this does not give the sweat any surface to collect there. Even on the skin, sweat is more likely to be released into the surrounding air. This reduces the overall body odor.

For reasons of hygiene, however, it is advisable to take a shower before going to bed. Otherwise, you would release the sweat of the day directly onto the bed linen or mattress.


So it turns out that some benefits are linked to sleeping naked . This way of sleeping can lead to a closer bond, especially for couples. You feel more attracted to your partner and stress is reduced.

So that you can sleep naked, you should pay special attention to hygiene. The skin comes into direct contact with the bed linen and the mattress. This makes it necessary that you wash the bedding more often and prefer to shower before bed. Then you will enjoy the night completely relaxed without annoying clothes.

Since I was a child, I have suffered from a house dust allergy, severely affecting me. I felt the effects both while exercising and while sleeping. Constant sneezing after getting up and difficult breathing were the consequences. The allergy has also developed into asthma, which is still a sporting restriction today.
