Kay from Boston, MA Overall: We also offer an Ultralight Sleeping Bag Review , which compares hoodless options, weighing only 31 ounces or less. And, sure, it is awkward at first, just like those first few nights with my best friend but then, maybe, by the end of those two weeks it seems absurd as it should.
So there for, she says No way, because she wants all that to be avoided. This issue is definitely mainly an American thing, as mentioned by some other people here. They need to sleep, they just sleep.
No insecurities or concerns at all. Once you are, you are. Nothing can change that. No mater the gender or who they are. I am a married heterosexual man. In fact many, many years ago I shared a cot with a male friend talk about togetherness. A friend and I were visiting a college friend of mine. Our hotel room had a bed and a cot for sleeping. When my friend realized it was too late in the evening to hop on mass transit back to his dorm, we invited him to stay over in our room.
Thus the sleeping arrangements I described. This seems to be mostly a peculiar American thing. I guess its just american thing. Never in my country thing like this become a problem. Lol actually i laugh how guys here debating how this is not homophobic, this is homophobic etc. This article is just about sleeping. You never sleep in bed with a brother, a friend? Well if thats how american guys , i dont really have a problem.
Its just weird to me how most guys here afraid to sleep in bed with another guy. Jeez, its just sleeping, not having sex lol!!!!!
I remember old Three Stooges films and others of that time like Laurel and Hardy where men would, by necessity, be forced to share a bed. Nobody ever thought Mo, Larry and Curley were gay. There is the subtle message in the staunch heterosexual world that the worst possible thing a man can be worse than a rapist, killer, or sociopath is gay.
We have come a long way since the dark days of homophobia thank goodness and yet this fear still persists. Similar with oral sex. The Greeks were the ones who were more ok with straight up homosexuality, like sex between equals.
Carlos- what a brave post! As a 20 year old gay man, I applaud your willingness to confront the discomfort and question your own internalized homophobia and male patriarchy. What does that even MEAN? Not wanting to try anal sex, and not wanting to sleep in the same bed as another man. To draw meaningful conclusions you have to look at all meaningful factors.
I agree with you there are lot of other factors besides homophobia here. The bigger taboo is a man sleeping in the same bed with a woman as friendlies. They always separate the sexes. Must be even less palatable than two guys in the same bed. This article resonates with me on a surprising level. I dont get the point of this article really, because i never experience all of the anxiousness and awkwardess with sleeping with another guy.
I doing that all the time in my life, with my brothers, my cousins, my friends. I remember when i went mountaineering with friend. Even now as an adult, when we go on vacation and me and my younger brother slept in the same hotel room its cheaper haha i like to cuddle in sort of non sexual brotherly act with him. Hes cute he is in high school now and i love my younger brother so much.
I was in the same situation as Han. I was camping with a male friend in the cold weather. We hugged all night to keep warm as we slept. There was no sexual feeling at all but we both felt warm and comfy enough to sleep. You seem a bit homophobic Joanna -although I could be wrong.
Here is a good article to read Joanna http: Would love to hear from more guys. Not wanting to engage in an ethically neutral activity that other people engage in does not make someone a bigot. I say this as a bisexual man who, obviously, has no problem sleeping in the same bed as other men.
As I mentioned, the only person I want to sleep with is my wife but if a need arose, I would far, far, far prefer to sleep with a woman than a man. However, as evidence that sleeping with someone is considered by women to be an intimate act, very few would agree to their husbands sleeping with another woman, no sex involved.
Poverty and living in filth are not synonymous. The only people I ever sleep with are my wife and my kids occasionally. There is no reason for me to ever sleep with another man, nor do I want or plan to. The point is that people will go to ridiculous ends NOT to share a bed when it makes no sense. People that I can speak for, not about anyone else. Secondly, I did not say that I would never, under any circumstances sleep with another man.
However, I will simplify and elaborate. Well i can have many conversation with him about sports, politics, movies, and about women, etc before sleeping. WIith my girl friend it would be super akward to me. I dont know what to say to her. Your need to take one insignificant detail — a dirty floor — and act as if the article centered around that or even deeply involved that proves that the topic either makes you uncomfortable or that it went completely over your head.
I captured the point totally. Fully developed human men should want to sleep with other men and be comfortable watching men kiss each other, as just two examples. You are entitled to your opinion but I am also entitled to think it was very bashing as well.
Whats that old saying…? If you dont have anything nice to say……? I suspect that is why your views are so narrow, but that would just be a guess. Half full for me.
My views are completely in line with the majority of heterosexual men, not narrow at all. I just returned from a trip with six other women. We left our husbands and children at home.
