Nocturnal Submission

For some reason I woke up this morning thinking about sleep and sleeping posture and habits. So I wrote a poll about it.



For the most part, in what position do you sleep in?

On my back
17(13.8%)
On my stomach
24(19.5%)
On my side
70(56.9%)
There isn't really one position that is predominant
12(9.8%)
Some othe position (what?)
0(0.0%)

How often do you usually wake up in the middle of the night (between the time you go to sleep at night and the time you get out of bed in the morning)?

Never
21(17.1%)
Once or twice
62(50.4%)
A lot
19(15.4%)
There's no usual pattern
19(15.4%)
Other (what?)
2(1.6%)

From the time you fall asleep at night until the time you get out of bed in the morning, does your bladder cause you to have to get out of bed?

No, my bladder is good from the time I fall asleep until the time I get out of bed to begin my day
48(39.0%)
Sometimes I have to get up to pee during the night, but not very often
55(44.7%)
I usually have to get up once a night at least to visit the bathroom
13(10.6%)
Yes, I have a problem and have to get up a lot to pee
5(4.1%)
Other (what?)
2(1.6%)

When you sleep alone, are you a sprawler or do you sleep in a straight alligned position?

Yeah, my limbs are sprawled all over the bed
32(26.2%)
No my sleep posture is pretty good: spine straight, arms by my side and legs close together
10(8.2%)
My sleep posture is somewhere between the two previous options
36(29.5%)
I'm inconsistent, sometimes I'm sprawled, sometimes I'm not
36(29.5%)
I never sleep alone, so this doesn't apply to me
3(2.5%)
Other (what?)
5(4.1%)

When you sleep with someone else (e.g. spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, or someone else who just happens to share your bed), how do you share the bed?

This doesn't apply to me, I always sleep alone
44(36.1%)
We share it pretty much equal
51(41.8%)
My sleep mate hogs more of the bed than I do
12(9.8%)
I hog more of the bed than my sleep mate
12(9.8%)
Other (what?)

Does your pet (e.g. dog, cat or whatever) sleep on the same bed as you?

Yes
24(19.5%)
Not usually, but sometimes
22(17.9%)
No
29(23.6%)
I don't have a pet so this doesn't apply to me
48(39.0%)

Hypothetical: you or your sleeping partner are away from home and you are now sleeping alone instead of with someone else. Are you able to sleep okay?

This doesn't really apply to me since I always or almost always sleep alone
57(46.3%)
Yes, no problem
29(23.6%)
Most of the time yes.
18(14.6%)
Sometimes yes, sometimes no. There's no consistent answer here.
5(4.1%)
Usually not

No, I always have trouble getting to sleep if my partner isn't there

Other (what?)
