When sleeping with a partner, do you prefer sleeping on the right or left side of the bed?

For those of you that are married or in relationships, or, perhaps have a special someone you occasionally spend the night with (hey, could be a sister or brother!), do you both have a side of the bed you typically sleep on?

Keep in mind, when we’re asking this question we’re asking it as if you were looking straight on at the bed from the foot of it, NOT as if you were in the bed.

So, is your side the right side? The left side? Tell us in the poll below. Thanks!

actually if im honest, the side that is closer to either the door or the toilet.

Another failed poll. Should have had a “Depends on the situation” selection.

Whichever side is left after the wife chooses. Right side at home, left side in RV, and who normally the side closer to window in a hotel.

Men usually sleep on the left. Question would have revealed more had it included gender.

…my choice is assuming the other side of the bed isn’t easier for my spouse to enter/exit the bed.

We base that decision on the room/situation.

We switch sides when in our RV as the right side is slightly longer and he is taller.

I sleep on the left side, home or RV. As a wise man once told me, “The woman is always right”.

I voted “right side,” but I don’t care. If “either” had been an option, then I would have picked it.

Side nearest the door. Security and protection for my sweetheart.

For a long time I slept on the left side at home and the right side in the RV. When we changed bedrooms at home I moved to the right side. It all depends on where I can put the CPAP.

Going on 57 yrs of marriage, I have always slept on the right side and my wife on the left.

Right side, last time I slept on the Left, my wife got pregnant. Haven’t made that mistake again.

For me it depends on the relationship of the bed to the door, i.e., I always sleep closest to the door.

Closest to the bathroom is my side and that is the right side, in the MoHo and our condo.

It depends where the dog decides to sleep that night.

Same here. That’s just one of many decisions our dog made in our lives. She passed away last December and being our bed hog dog is just one of many things we miss every day.

Whether in the RV or at home I sleep on the right side. Is there any other way? That’s the rules! So says the wife.

When we are home I sleep on the left side , when we are in the rv I sleep on the right side, that puts her nearest the bathroom.

That’s my answer, which ever side is closest to the bathroom is DW’s as I very seldom get up in the middle of the night.
