There is a disgusting reason you should never sleep naked in bed – no matter how tempting it is.
There are a variety of different ways to get a good night’s sleep, from sleeping on your stomach to flipping your pillow over to get the cool side.
But for a lot of people, there’s nothing quite as comfortable as sleeping in your birthday suit.
Yet it may not seem as pleasant once you find out what this can lead to.
The surprising effects sleeping naked will have on your body. Find out more information in the clip below…
An expert is now warning people to stop sleeping naked – even if it is boiling hot outside and it seems like a simple solution.
A guy who works for the TikTok account Shut Eye says that people forget that when they go to sleep, they will end up farting – which is disastrous if you’re commando.
He explains: “Here’s why you should never sleep commando. The average person cracks one off 15 to 25 times a day, and this can happen when you’re sleeping.

“A scientific study has proven that every time you beep the horn, you spray a tiny amount of faecal material.”
So yeah, you may feel a lot cooler without any clothes on – but you’re also submerging yourself in some s***ty particles that are too small to see with the naked eye.
Although this sounds pretty gross, the expert’s warning doesn’t seem to have deterred a lot of people.
One TikToker says: “Don’t tell me what to do…”
Another adds: “Just wash the sheets.”
Somebody else comments: “Who f***ing cares, at least I’m single.”
While a fourth writes: “Definitely still sleeping naked.”
For those who are going to ignore this warning, another expert has suggested how to limit the amount of faecal material nesting away in your sheets.
Dr Hana Patel tells HuffPost: “If you do choose to sleep naked, I would recommend that you wash your sheets at least once a week.
“When we sleep we shed hair, skin, saliva and faecal matter which is likely to be increased if you’re sleeping without pyjamas on.”
She adds: “Let’s not forget that over time your bedding will also collect dust mites so with increased bacteria in the sleep space, wash your bedding once a week.”
When it comes to sleeping naked, there isn’t really much research that shows whether its benefits outweigh its cons.
According to the Sleep Foundation, ‘there isn’t much scientific research studying the effects of sleeping nude, or reliable data on what percentage of people in the US sleep naked’.
