TMI Tuesday: Let's Go to Bed!

1. What size (King, queen, full, twin)?
King! When I was first married we had a queen and I hated it. I actually hated the mattress AND the proximity to my ex. I used a pillow barrier to keep us apart so no snuggling could take place, so we upgraded to a king to make it more comfortable for both of us. Now that I'm with the BF, we are almost always next to each other. A lot of nights we share a pillow. We don't really need a king. Oh, the size is really nice, but I wouldn't mind going down to a queen one day. (For the record, he says I'm crazy and has no intention of downsizing our bed at all.)

2. What mattress construction?
We have a conventional spring mattress with a 3" thick cushion top. No boxspring, It's so comfortable!

3. What furniture type? Frame, headboard/footboard, canopy, trundle, etc? Describe.
We have a headboard/footboard combination. It's a platform bed from Ikea, so instead of a boxspring it has wooden slats. I love my bed.

4. If your bed has headboard/footboard or bedposts, have you ever been tied to them? Ever tied anyone to them? For what purpose?
Our bed.

You can see our restraints in the picture above (tied to four corners of the bed from the time he made me scream and scream). I've also tied him sitting up to the footboard the time I made him watch me masturbate.

5. What kind of sheets?
Currently organic cotton from Target. I prefer 100% cotton sheets, preferably organic. It takes a while for them to soften up as they are a bit rougher than regular sheets, but they are so comfortable. And since we are always naked in our bed, I like knowing the fibers I sleep and breathe on are organic.

6. What kind of blankets (cotton, wool, thermal, electric)?
We have an electric blanket for when its freezing in winter and we need the bed to be warmed up before climbing in naked (yes, we sleep naked all year round). Otherwise, no blankets needed.

7. What’s on top (bedspread, duvet,…)?
We have a duvet, a subject of much debate. I love the duvet; its a feather comforter with a separate machine washable cover. The problem is, the covers get kicked around and the duvet ends up in a tiny ball with a bunch of empty cover surrounding it, so one person is overwhelmed by the heat of triple comforter and the other is cold. I love it (I like to be cold while sleeping) but he hates the struggle. We don't use it during this heatwave summer.

8. What kind of pillow (down, foam, fiberfill)? I have a bunch of pillows, really. I have feather, fiberfill, and latex foam. I'm kind of like the princess and the pea when it comes to being comfortable in bed, so I have a variety of pillows for whatever I need at the moment.

Bonus:  Fill in the blank and answer question.
If you the reader comes over, will you let them fuck you on your bed? Yes or no.  I always prefer to fuck on a bed, so, assuming we're both into it and the boyfriend is as well, then yes, you may share my bed with me/us.


  1. The detail about the pillow barrier (as mentioned in #1) is very telling. We're glad you're not in that relationship anymore. For the record, if we had room for a king we couldn't imagine downsizing to a queen. We love our queen, but only because it's what we have.

    Your duvet sounds exactly like ours. It's subject to the same kicking-around as yours. Frankly, I'm not a fan of feathers as I hate getting stabbed in my sleep. Jill loves it. Go figure.

    Hurray for your bonus answer! We'll be right over. ;)

  2. You have very comfy looking bed. Also, I would love to come over and play! ;)

  3. These is something very intimate about seeing your bed. I love the color of your sheets, very inviting :)

    Great answers to the questions, its fun to take a peek into your lives. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you! Grey sheets are kind of an odd choice, but I find the color soothing for sleeping in.

  4. Great answers. I have no idea why it's so fascinating to hear about other people's beds.

    Also, I would love to come play; your bed looks comfy! ;-)

    Happy Tuesday!
