Sahara Ray – Boob Slip on the Beach in Cancun, Mexico
What would you think of a partner who doesn’t have a ‘real’ bed?
I want to get rid of my bed and sleep on a thin-ish floor mattress, something like this. I like it more than a regular bed, more comfortable, better for my back, takes up less room. But I also like getting laid and I’m guessing there’s some stigma against sleeping on the floor. I’m mid 20’s if it matters.
lv4myw: Mid-20s is the age where sleeping on the floor starts to lose its appeal for a lot of people.
Completely separate from the issue of whether it will hurt getting laid (one night might not be a deal killer for a lot of people), make sure that you clean down there regularly. When a mattress is elevated, air circulates, but when it’s on the ground, moisture can build up and you get mildew, etc.
pokerbrowni: If you like (and actually have) sex, there is more reason than just custom for a regular height bed. Having that extra height is just handy for all sorts of things.
My suggestion is to pick up some wood and build yourself a platform, then put the mattress on top of the platform. It will do everything you want, but will look more normal and give you the height you need for all manner of bedroom gymnastics. You should be able to do it with just a hand saw and a battery powered drill motor.
VodkaKitty: This shit is acceptable in college, but not in real life. It would be a huge turn off.
kodawonder: If you’re sexual partner really cares about you then your mattress wouldn’t matter. However, it’s best that you keep your house and room as clean as possible because being messy is unattractive to most people. People have sex in cars, on couches, bare floors etc. So don’t worry about that at all.
ra__account: I knew someone that tried something like that and rapidly changed his mind, at least partially due to negative feedback from potential sex partners.
fsckit: My mate had a futon for many years, didn’t do him or his love life any harm.
