People Who Sleep Naked Share Their Emergency Exit Plan

It's a shame that only 17% of Americans sleep naked...


Sleeping in the buff can help you fall asleep faster, reduce your risk for yeast infections, and even improve your relationship with your partner, according to Huffpost. Maybe losing the clothes at bed time is a good idea after all...

Unless, there's some kind of emergency that requires you to make a quick getaway. Redditor u/Nazamoth had some concerns about sleeping nude, and so asked, "People who sleep naked, what is your plan in case of a fire or murderer?"

10. Business as usual, but naked

"1. ⁠Use a fire extinguisher, naked.

2. ⁠Fight the intruder, naked."

9. Break out or break the intruder

"I have a bat next to the bed.

1. ⁠Intruder? Use bat.

2. ⁠Fire? Use bat."

8. Be intimidating

"Sleeping naked literally is my plan in both those cases.
If the house is on fire I assume it would be warm, probably excessively so, by already being naked I have few seconds advantage on the heat becoming unbearable.

If a murderer enters the house while I'm asleep I figure the best course of defence is to scare them off, I'm not by nature a frightening man, but I figure to a nighttime intruder an angry naked guy running at you b**** swinging freely would be somewhat intimidating."

7. Fearless nudity is dominating 

"Intensely stare at whatever the threat is and assert dominance"

6. Make the threat feel guilty for disturbing you 

"Whip out my cocktail sausage to make the fire and/or burglar leave me alone because of guilt."

5. Keep it sexy

"In case of fire I just put on clothes. In case of murderer. Well I can give a sexy distraction so i can KO him."

4. Keep your wits

"I don't understand the question? Why would it be any different if you had clothes on. I'm not gonna let myself be murdered or stay in a burning building because I'm too embarrassed that I'm naked."

3. Life comes full circle 

"I'm going out the way I came into this world"

2. Use your hidden talents

Giphy

"Perform the helicopter maneuver in hopes that it intimidates the potential murder, or blows out the fire like a 5 year old with their birthday candles."

1. Do what you gotta do

"Same thing just nude"

Gwob4

"This. As a firefighter, this really happens, and honestly, we don't care as long as you're safe. Taking that extra time can really make the difference between living and dying. We have blankets just for this reason.

Besides, if you're actually burnt or injured chances are that you are going to end up naked at the ER anyway, and its saves us a few minutes."

Not all television and movies are loved by all.

A story and its characters have to appeal to you in order for you to be engaged.

It can take next to nothing for us to lose interest and let the screen go black.

I fear death.

I wake up in cold sweats dreaming about it.

But there are more preferred ways to exit.

All we can do is hope to be lucky enough to skip the mercilessly awful.

Please just let me go quick and in my sleep.
