A national survey found a majority of Americans would rather have a good night’s sleep than have sex – and many admitted to sleeping in some interesting places.
The survey, conducted by the Better Sleep Council for its “May is Better Sleep Month” campaign, found that 6 in 10 adults in the United States crave sleep more than sex. That figure is a lot higher for women, where 79 percent sided with sleep.
About half of those surveyed said they fall asleep somewhere other than their bed at least once a week. Some of the oddest places included tree/roof, stranger’s apartment, casino, drag races, tank and saw horse.
The most common non-bed locations people said they fell asleep were:
· 1 in 10 admitted to dozing off at work (double this if you include students)
· 7% of Americans nod off in church
· 7% admitted to sleeping in the car (some of those while driving)
· 6% on public transportation
· 4% on the toilet
And it may come as no surprise to many that men are more likely than women to fall asleep just about anywhere other than their bed – 14 percent for men and 8 percent for women.
The BSC’s survey was conducted in early 2012 and included 1,000 participants, with a +/- 3 percent margin of error.
