  • A revealing (see what we did there!) new survey indicates that 33% of Brits like to nod off in the nude. And a whopping 67% of us don't even have pyjamas!

    We may be classed as a bunch of stiff-upper-lip Brits, but a new survey, conducted by Duvet & Pillow Warehouse, reveals that 33% of us have ditched the pyjamas and actually prefer to nod off in the nude.

    to the figures, 45% of the UK’s male population choose to sleep in the buff every night. Maybe they’re a daring bunch, or maybe they just can’t
    be bothered to dig out their PJs, but either way it certainly dispels
    the myth that us Brits are buttoned-up bores!

    However, laziness may be a key factor as 67% of respondents stated that they do not wear pyjamas to bed, but instead opt for shorts and T-shirts or nothing at all.

    So, with so many Brits willing to dump the bedroom attire – does that mean they’ll be lots of love-ins planned for Valentine’s Day?

    Well yes actually, because 65% of those in love
    would choose to spend Valentine’s night in bed with their other half, even
    when tempted by a night with George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Cheryl Cole and
    Kelly Brook (and 5% of us would rather go to bed with our pets than a celebrity! We’re saying nothing…).

    The survey also revealed that a whopping 76% of Brits think going to bed at the same time as your partner is the key to a successful relationship.

    In addition a quarter of respondents claim that mobile phones and tablets can get in the way of bedroom routines.

    Outside the bedroom it seems Brits are still traditional at heart with 30% hoping to receive flowers this Valentine’s Day.

    They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but it seems it’s the way to a woman’s heart too, with 79% of all Brits stating their perfect Valentine’s celebration is a romantic meal for two (and preferably not one that’s been thrown together in the kitchen)!

    So what are you doing this Valentine’s Day? Spending the night in bed with your bloke?

    Here at Housetohome, the majority of us will be cuddling up with our cats (come on, they’re just as cute)… But we wouldn’t say no to a meal out, too (as long as Mittens is in agreement)!
