Is sleeping position choice based on sex?

Bignuf Bignuf
I've seen polls about sleep position, but never as it relates to men and woman. Is there a correlation? Let's see. What is your GENDER and What is your FAVORITE sleep position?

I always sleep mid way between on my side and on my stomach. And I do that on both sides. I get a back ache and it tends to block off a main artery in my neck (makes my head feel foggy and is horrible) if I lay on my stomach.
Lucky21 Lucky21
I sleep on my sides.
froggiemoma froggiemoma
I sleep on my sides most of the time.
Nora Nora
I'm with Shellz31...I have "too much" in the front to actually sleep on my stomach, so I kind of sleep up on one hip with my shoulders near flat, as face down as I can get. I toss and turn to both sides as well.

My male other half prefers his back, but also sleeps on both sides as well. We both toss and turn, it is a very active place in the middle of the night! I'm surprised the cats opt to sleep in it some nights!
Ms. Spice Ms. Spice
i like to sleep on back; i'm so thin that when i sleep on my sides it feels like i'm crushing myself (weird, right) and sleeping on my stomach is just plain uncomfortable.
GravyCakes GravyCakes
my bf likes to sleep on his stomach a lot, but sleeps on his side facing away from me when i sleep over. he doesn't like it when we're facing each other b/c he doesn't like it when ppl breathe on him when he's asleep. so we spoon a lot.
ToyGurl ToyGurl
My husband and I always fall asleep in each other's arms, both on our left sides, but we always wake up on our stomachs. It's awful!
sexyintexas sexyintexas
I normally sleep on my right side. He normally falls asleep on his back but rolls up against me on his right side before morning.
Kkay Kkay
I fairly evenly exchange between my left side and my back, but will sleep on my right side or on my stomach occasionally.
I usually start on my left side or stomach, then shift to my right sometime in the night, and wake up on my back. I guess I move around a lot.
GenderSexplorations GenderSexplorations
I don't care what side I sleep on, as long as I'm facing towards a wall. Dunno why, just kinda my thing.
Ghost Ghost
I sleep in all positions, every night.
Beck Beck
I have to sleep on my stomach. It sucks when you are pregnant, this is not a position that works with a huge round belly. You can not get comfortable when pregnant anyhow let alone not being able to sleep in your favorite way. I do end up all over the place. I toss, turn, flip, and whatever else you can do.
Starkiller87 Starkiller87
I sleep on my stomach but when we were in college me and my boyfriend shared a twin bed for a semester before we were smart and moved his bed into my room and tied them together. And we used to sleep on our sides tangled up in limbs.
AndroAngel AndroAngel
I'll sleep on either side, but I always sleep on my side and I tend to curl into a ball... I've woke up with my cheek resting on my knee before.
mcl272 mcl272
hadn't found a correlation between the 2! i usually also sleep midway between my side & stomach curled up. sometimes sides, whatever is comfortable for that night!

We usually spoon one way or the other.
Bonanza Jellybean Bonanza Jellybean
I'm female, and my boyfriend and I usually spoon in bed. Inevitably one or both of us will shift onto our back. He's sometimes on his stomach when we wake up, though, and I tend to stretch my legs out and take up most of the bed.

When I first read this, I thought the title of the thread was comparing sleeping position to preferred sexual position. That actually got me thinking: generally, people sleep in the position they're most comfortable in, and I think we probably have sex with the same thought in mind...

As for correlation between sleeping position and favorite sexual position, our favorite (though we switch it up pretty frequently) is me on my back with my legs around his waist while he's on top of me. Quite similar to our individual preferred sleeping positions!

I have to sleep on my back but use to sleep on either side
Sammi Sammi
I sleep on one side or the other - depends on the night
tooshy tooshy
I'm female and I sleep all over. I can't get comfortable for very long.
Halfthere Halfthere
I usually end up sleeping on my back, but I am more comfortable on my stomach. The thing about sleeping on my stomach is that every once in a while I wake up and find that BOTH of my arms are asleep; this can be disconcerting because I can't move well and I always feel like I'm going to dislocate one of them if I try.

Anyone else have this problem?
NuclearTeapot NuclearTeapot
I am female and prefer to sleep facing the door. Call me paranoid.
The Curious Couple The Curious Couple
I'm a guy and I prefer to sleep on my left side. It's probably because I have a window on the right of my bed that lets in a little light even at night.

This happens to me sometimes. I occasionally fall asleep with my head on my arm or my arm bent under my pillow. It's scary to wake up with a numb, immobile limb. The only way I know of dealing with it is to be careful of what position I sleep in. :/

I roll around alot during the night. no one position.

I am female and I only sleep on the right side. When I'm on my left side I can feel my heart and it bothers me, when I'm on my back or stomach I cannot normally breathe. So only right side for me.

I always sleep on my back. She usually sleeps on her side with her butt digging into my hip.
