Men had a slightly different dilemma: snoring. Nearly 43 percent of men asked were most anxious about sounding like a lawn mower while sleeping at a partner’s house.
Both men and women were nervous about farting in bed, moving too much in their sleep, drooling, and sleeping awkwardly. More than 16 percent of men even admitted to being anxious about their morning erections when sleeping at their partner’s house.
So what's the best advice for sleeping at a partner's house for the first time?
The number one suggestion for making staying over less uncomfortable was simple — bring a toothbrush. "Whether it’s to avoid having morning breath or help you feel normal at the end of the night, being able to brush your teeth can be cathartic when sleeping in someone else’s bed for the first time,” said the study.
Other easy ways to lessen the tension were making sure you have sexual protection, refraining from snooping through your partner’s things, not touching their cell phone, and bringing a phone charger. And if you think pancakes might be a nice touch, men might agree. Compared to women, men were 17 percent more likely to suggest making breakfast for a partner in the morning.
The average timeline of sleepover habits for people in a relationship went as following:
Farting in bed and going to the bathroom with the door open took nearly nine months on average for both sexes. Um, how about never?
Leaving a toothbrush at their partner’s house or leaving the bed unmade took women an extra month than men, on average.
More than 1,000 people participated in the survey — 52 percent female and 48 percent male. Respondents ranged in age from 18 to 75. To qualify for the survey, participants had to be currently in a relationship but not actively living with their partner.
