Couples snuggle up to bundle up

There are many benefits to staying in bed during the colder temperatures. For couples, it means they have more time with each other.

  • The top place people like to cuddle in is bed – more than one-quarter (28%) of all Americans say they enjoy cuddling in bed
    • Most Americans surveyed (86%) think there are benefits to cuddling. These feelings were strongest among respondents who reported having a comfortable mattress.
  • A majority (77%) of those who keep away winter’s chill by having more sex say they find intimacy more satisfying when the weather’s cold outside, particularly in the winter
  • Of the Americans who think they sleep fewer hours in the winter, 17% of them say they sleep less because they were too busy “gettin’ busy!”

The young and the restful

  • Those younger than 50 are more likely than those older to say they cuddle and/or “make love” to stay warm in the winter
  • Those younger than 50 are more likely than those older to say they sleep more in the winter than other times of the year

Excited for winter bedtime bliss

  • More than half (53%) of all people are looking forward (at least somewhat) to the cooler weather
  • A little more than half of Americans (51%) sleep more in the wintertime, and 42% find winter to be the best sleeping season
  • Almost half (48%) of all Americans say they spend more time in bed in the winter
  • About two-thirds (64%) of those who say they sleep more hours in the winter answer “it gets dark early” as the reason why they do so

A comfortable mattress goes a long way

  • Of those who do find their bed/mattress very comfortable, they are also more likely than those who do not find their bed as comfortable to:
    • Look forward to the upcoming cooler/colder weather
    • Believe that there are benefits to cuddling
    • Say they sleep more hours in the winter than other times of the year
    • Say they sleep more hours in the winter because they sleep better after “making sweet, sweet love”
    • Say they definitely spend more time in bed in the winter
