Some of my friends unbashfully tells me they sleep naked. Newly weds definitely wake up naked. LOL. Do you know that there are dangers or risks of sleeping naked? Why? Because you will never know if you have a sleep disorder like sleepwalking. Apparently this sleep disorder happens twice as much in men than women. And a survey conducted by most hotels showed that 95% of sleepwalkers are naked men. And they are probably sniggering behind their closed doors about their guests.
UK – A hotel chain in London has now taken to guiding employees on handling people who sleepwalk in the nude, after noting that such incidents at hotels are on the rise, reported Fox. Travelodge has reissued “Sleepwalkers Guide” to every one of its 310 hotels in UK and it includes pointers on handling a sleepwalker and the outlines of the hotel’s procedures.
A survey conducted also prompted the reissue of the guide after finding a seven fold increase in incidents of sleepwalking clients at its UK hotels since 2006. The survey has also noted that a great number of the sleepwalkers are naked men, at 95%.Sleepwalking clients have been known to ask questions at the reception area about the bathroom, a copy of the day’s paper, and one male sleepwalker who was not wearing anything even got himself locked out of his own room which later led to an arrest.
“Sleepwalking is on the rise throughout the UK,” says Leigh McCarron, Travelodge’s sleep director. “We have seen an increased number of cases over the years so it is important that our staff know how to help sleepwalkers when it arises.”
If you work in a hotel, it would be quite common. Sometimes these guests aren’t even aware of it since they are sometimes escorted back to their room and goes back to sleep and do not know it had happened the night before. Of course some had to be woken up in since they have no identity on them (they are naked, after all) but find themselves being dressed in the hotel robe or towel around their waists.
So, just a word of advice. Avoid sleeping naked if you travel or not in the comforts of your own home. Look at this picture of another risk of sleeping naked!
