More men than women take teddy bears to bed when sleeping alone, it is claimed.
According to a new study, some 20% of men admitted to cuddling a teddy, compared to 15% of women.

Of the 2,000 people surveyed, 63% said they needed a bedtime cuddle to sleep.

Eight percent of women admitted spraying their pillow or nightclothes with their partner’s aftershave when away from home on their own.

But only 3% of men resorted to using their partner’s perfume to offset loneliness.

Nearly three in five people felt lonely sleeping without their partner, while 16% found it difficult to get to sleep and 9% felt scared.

The survey revealed actress Angelina Jolie was the person men would most like to cuddle up with.

Women opted for Pirates Of The Caribbean star Johnny Depp.

The study was commissioned by hotel chain Travelodge which says it is now piloting a ‘Cuddillow’.

They can always get an arm pillow if they ‘need a cuddle before sleep’.
Sheesh.

The Japanese seem to make a lot of oddball pillows.  I don’t feel right linking to any, though, as they’re downright disturbing.

I have a teddy bear named Mr Armitage, though I don’t tend to cuddle him.  I do sometimes squeeze his foot while I’m sleeping, though.

I never slept with stuffed animals on my bed.  After waking a few times and being uncomfortable b/c I was laying on a fuzzy lump, I just started knocking them off the bed before it was time to sleep.

Just one “n” in the right place and it reads completely different.

That is disturbing, and I find it hard to believe, depending on where the study was performed.  Now if it was Europe or Japan, then I could believe it.  raspberry

My girlfriend always refers to me as her teddy bear.  But as far as I know she doesn’t sleep with one when I’m not around.  I don’t either.

I slept alone for many many years until I married Erik.  He has to go to New York on occasion and I don’t like it.  What helps is that FuzzyButt sleeps with us, well on my side of the bed in his own bed-box snuggled under his own blankets.  Sometimes he wakes before I do, comes out from his blanket, sits on my pillow and then he keeps touching my face.  If I don’t wake up to that, after awhile he snatches the bridge of my nose in a rather ‘twingeful’, wake-up nip.
