Anyone sleep with your lover's clothing when he's away?

    This article below says both men and women do it. I never have, although maybe not changing the bed sheets until he returns is the same thing.

    My straight wife (!) used to take my clothes into bed with her when I was away on Army duty. I was actually very touched when she told me about it.

    My late partner did the same thing when I'd take short trips without him. My current partner never has because I haven't yet been away from him overnight. He was away from me on a trip when we were just dating and living apart, and I used my key to his place to sleep in his bed, on the used sheets.

    Your own experiences?

    I used too take a tshirt to bed with me, it was comforting and I slept better, I was just not used to sleeping alone.

    Not a dork! I think that's beautiful! What a testament to your love. I just didn't know it was that common.

    Nope. What can I say some people might think I am cold-blooded or something.

    Well, I'm very scent oriented, so yeah, I've done this. I had a tee shirt of my ex's that I'd ball up and sleep with. It just reminded me of him... and comforted me.

    After I moved away from him, to LA, I used to wear a hat of his that I kept... it made the transition easier to sometimes catch a whiff of him. icon_sad.gif

    Or, just a victim of a stuffy nose? LOL!

    Seriously, I've never taken clothing items into bed with me, either. But when I think about it, I prolly would have sensed his odor on the sheets if they weren't changed right after he left, and the pillows and comforter would have some slight scent on them, too.

    I do know that when I cuddle with my man in bed, as I discussed in another thread here, I love the feel of his naked skin against mine, and his scent is lovely when I'm that close. This clothing in bed thing is totally believable to me, though as I said, I wasn't aware many others did it, nor have I myself.

    why is it? when you love someone so deeply having them far away can be a difficult experience when you aren't used to it.. having something there as simple as a tshirt can make you all the more comfortable..

    Recharge the smell? Does he wear it until the red LED light turns green? LOL!

    I did this a lot when my hubby worked out of town. I see absolutely nothing weird about it. He did it too when I had a business trip.

    Not sure about clothes, but yeah I miss the company, someone to cuddle up to. Since splitting up I've been adjusting to an empty bed so it has been a bit weird. Sometimes just a pillow is enough.

    LOL... yeah. And it's heartwarming things like this, that I didn't even know were so widespread, that convince me that gay love is true, valid, and beautiful, and much more than mere shallow sexual couplings as our enemies would contend.

    That's why this scene will be forever ingrained into my brain

    When you are intimate with someone just the smell of their clothes can make you feel good inside

    When I saw this scene in the theatre, all the gays who were the majority of the audience were crying out loud. It was like being at a funeral service. Even my BF, who always tried to present himself as a macho butch guy, was just sobbing away next to me.

    And I was like "It's just a shirt!" I'm not very sentimental when it comes to fictional stories.

    Yeah, I totally remember tearing up big time during that scene.

    But, getting back to Red Vespa's first post - I totally 100% relate to the sleeping in or wearing of a lover's clothes. I have done that before...it's something that starts subconsciously, and then over time becomes something I crave and seek out.

    Sappy old fool right here
