nude encourages and celebrates sexuality and sensuality as a natural
part of life. It makes sex and Blissettes easier, and turns every
cuddle into a sensual skin-on-skin experience.
Many couples in a `normal´
relationship experience sex and sensuality in bed only a few times each
week. For these couples, most mornings and evenings remain
chaste. Wearing bedclothes most of the time while in bed means that any
casual cuddles miss out on the extra sensuality and intimacy that is
enjoyed when skin touches skin.
Sleeping in the nude every night feels great, and is highly recommended for all couples who practice Devotional Sex.
Devotional Sex is very
different because a
Knight will usually be feeling at least some erotic energy every morning and every bedtime.
Princess also feels some erotic energy then she may decide to enjoy some sexual activity.
the suggestion here, and after discussing it with my Princess, I've now
converted to a nude sleeper as well. She likes how it causes me to
cuddle more to stay warm ... When I sleep nude with her she gets skin
contact, my tool to play with, and absolute devotion; a win-win!"
When a Princess does not want any sexual activity her Knight's
erotic energy makes him want to at least enjoy a cuddle. As a
result, couples who practice Devotional Sex engage in much more
touching and cuddling than most `normal´ couples.

How many people sleep in the nude?
What percentage of adults sleep naked? I doubt we will ever know.
The people who probably have the best idea are the makers of pajamas.
I would love to see a graph showing sales per head of population for
each year over the last 50 years. Not only would this show how sales
have declined, it would also show when the biggest changes took place.
(Please contact me if you find such a graph!)
What is certain is that sleeping in the nude is fairly common. But most people don’t talk about it.
I am sure that if you asked your friends what, if anything, they wear in bed you would get a few surprises!
Sleeping nude as shown in film and TV
from sex scenes, almost every time a movie or TV program shows a couple
getting into or out of bed they are wearing something.

especially in areas which are private in real-life. Our film and TV
has, unfortunately, created the impression that everyone wears clothing
Whether or not nudity is shown on screen is influenced
by the process of filming and how the viewer will react to what is
shown. It is much easier to avoid shooting a nude scene, and seeing an
attractive actor nude on screen will titillate many viewers.
instead of showing the reality that many people sleep in the nude, our
film and TV takes the easy way out and almost always shows people
wearing some clothing in bed.

bedroom. But as our bedrooms are private it is silly to act as if we are

The joy of sensual skin-on-skin cuddles
The skin is
our largest sensory
organ, and a nude cuddle stimulates our whole body. There is the
body-to-body contact at the front, and the arms and hands of our
partner on our back.
A skin-on-skin cuddle is one of the nicest ways to enjoy touching and
being touched. While it is mainly a sensual pleasure there is, of
course, a sexual aspect.
who wear bedclothes at night may get into bed naked if they plan to
have sex. If they are already in bed when the urge strikes they might
only partially undress. For these couples a skin-on-skin cuddle will
not happen very often, and then only as part of sexual activity. They
miss out on the sensual pleasure of enjoying a nude cuddle without
does not just change how a couple enjoy sex - it changes the way each
partner feels towards the other when they are not having sex. One
of the biggest changes is that the Knight's constant erotic energy
means that when sexual activity does not happen he still wants to feel
connected with his partner and at least enjoy a cuddle. So a Devotee
couple are likely to enjoy lots of cuddling without any sexual activity. Sleeping nude makes these cuddles feel much
more sensual and special as they are now all skin-on-skin cuddles.
Nude cuddling builds intimacy and
connection, and is very addictive.
Many couples who practice Devotional Sex will decide to
practice a cuddle ritual and thus enjoy at least one nude cuddle every day!
Sleeping nude benefits sexual activity
like a `normal´ couple, a couple who practice Devotional Sex are
likely to enjoy several sessions of full sexual activity each
But, unlike most `normal´ couples, they are also very likely to
have a few other mornings and bedtimes when they enjoy just a few
minutes of sexual activity before getting up or going to sleep. These Blissettes are one of the joys of Devotional Sex.
Sleeping nude makes it much easier to enjoy this extra sexual activity. (More)
Strange at first
For someone who has always worn bedclothes the first few times you sleep in the nude will probably feel very strange - you will feel
naked in bed! But
fairly quickly - later that first night or after a few nights of
sleeping naked - the strangeness will wear off, and sleeping nude will
start to feel natural and normal.
The first few cuddles
with your partner when you are both nude but there is no sexual activity
might also feel strange. But it soon becomes liberating to enjoy such

spend a night wearing bedclothes, you will most likely feel that this
is constraining and unnatural - almost as strange as having to wear
clothes in the shower.

Practical matters and exceptions
There are some practical things that can be done to make sleeping in the nude
easier, and there are also some exceptions to always sleeping nude. (More)
Always nude Knight
Though I recommend that
couples who practice Devotional Sex sleep in the nude, there will be
some women who will not want to do this.
What can work well in this situation is the Princess making a rule that her Knight must always sleep in the nude.
This is not as good as both sleeping in the nude because you miss out
on skin-on-skin cuddles. But it does mean that the Princess has easy
access to her Knight, and his being naked whilst she is wearing
something will remind them both that he is her Knight.
