    Since my youth I have always slept better in the buff. I like the feel of nice crisp sheets against my skin as opposed to flannel or silk pajamas or underwear.

    To my way of thinking, being unable to sleep naked, as many claim they cannot, is quite indicative of great insecurity of both mind and body.

    Sleeping attire which invariably wraps itself about my legs, or worse, I just can't tolerate.

    Although I like to be able to feel so at ease as to sleep sans clothing, in our neighborhood one has to be prepared to get up and do whatever one must do. Insecurity issue? Perhaps and the trail of weapons from the bedroom to the living room are probably proof of that but I do feel a lot more secure without “the nether region” being my primary concern instead of whatever I should be concentrating on. Rather than insecure, I would rather call it “military readiness”.
    All that said, since I too cannot stand to have my legs and upper body all wound up in a set of pajamas which is not only hot and sweaty but an incumbrance, a pair of drawers seem to be as comfortable as I can get under the circumstances. (I still do wonder why we call them a “pair” of underwear or drawers)?

    Sleeping in the buff is generally normal for me, but there are times that I have worn pj's. I have both summer pj's and winter flannel ones. Don't need the winter flannel ones here, but this coming winter, back living in Colorado, the flannel ones will definitely come out.
    My wife never sleeps nude that way. She always wears an old t-shirt and underwear.

    here's the answer Bobby...

    “Pair,” from the Latin, means two like things. And pants (pantaloons) were originally two like things. You put them on one leg at a time because they actually came in two pieces. You put on one leg, tied it around your waist, then put on the other. From the beginning, about the 16th Century, pants have been referred to as a pair. Shirts were made from a single piece of cloth, so two sleeves didn’t inspire anybody to call them a pair of shirts. Or a pair of bras.

    Thank you Holly! If one cannot go through a day without finding something of historical relevance, a valuable thing stands the chance of being forgotten.

    I'll second that Bobby. This can be said for many, many of the posts here.

    I don't sleep naked because I don't like it; it has nothing to do with "a great insecurity" whatsoever. Also, we raised 5 children and there was no way we'd go to bed without some kind of modesty covering because kids have a way of climbing into bed with parents at inopportune times.

    @Beth Gallagher

    Clothing promotes modesty. Modesty is human-conceived, a factor virtually no one is born with. Only humans of all the living things exhibit modesty.

    Frank,
    I guess that's what civilization did to some of us.

    I am modest, and frankly it's a quality I appreciate in people. Some things are better left to the imagination.

    @Beth

    Modesty is likely a virtue, when it comes down to "brass tacks"; I know I possess few virtues other than ability to conceive and build complex machinery.

    But, I must ask, how does one appreciate modesty in others? By what do you judge it? Not humility, which is used synonymously, nor lack of vanity, so by what factors is it determined? That they remain clothed?
