Foreplay is great and all, but we’re here for the sleepy parts that happen AFTER you get it on. Like fighting over who gets to be the little spoon, pillow talking in sheer Washable Silk Chiffon, or putting your Washable Silk Sheets to good use (think: ice cream, wine, and your favorite Lunya). However you decide to do it this Valentine’s Day, it all starts by slipping on some feel-good fabrics sure to get you in the mood... for bedtime. Whatever comes before or after is up to you.
Valentine's Day is the Super Bowl of sex. No matter how you play, who's on your team, or whether you're all about solo scrimmage, sexy time is at the front of the public consciousness in mid-February.
Here's the real conundrum: in focusing so much on getting frisky, we've forgotten about sleep.
Hear me out. This is not a puritanical message by any means. We already know that orgasming leads to better sleep. But did you know sleeping also leads to orgasming? As the company on a mission to elevate rest, I'm here to help you enjoy the more “lusty'' perks of sleep. Afterplay (hello, bedtime) is the new foreplay.
Studies show that averaging one more hour of sleep per night leads to 14% more sex the next day. We can also turn to statistics to tell us that couples who spend more time sleeping next to one other have happier and healthier relationships. Or that sleep deprivation is one of the biggest triggers for relationship conflict. Or that people with similar sleep preferences (like early bedtimes) are more likely to match romantically.
Convinced yet? This holiday, skip the jewels. Skip the prefix menus. Skip the chocolate (ooh, that was hard to write). Snag her (or yourself) something comfortable, get snoozing, and discover all new ways to feel Good in Bed.
Yours in slumber,
