A new study has found that doggy-style is the best sex position for improving your sleep. We take a deep dive into the connection between boning and dozing.
It’s frustrating to toss and turn in bed, trying to sleep but not being able to—and insomnia is a bigger issue than it’s ever been, with the COVID-19 pandemic and its accompanying stress wreaking havoc with people’s sleep.
Thankfully, a new study has revealed a fun solution to troubled sleep—fucking doggy-style!
The Dozy Owl, a sleep blog in the U.K., conducted research on the impact of sex on Rapid Eye Movement [REM] sleep—a particularly regenerative stage of sleep—and found that bumpin’ uglies doggy-style increased people’s REM sleep by 43%, according to Metro UK. In its study, The Dozy Owl surveyed 1,652 people and asked them to wear a sleep monitor after having sex in an assigned position. Over three months, the participants tried 25 popular positions and reported back.
“There is an ongoing debate surrounding the effect of sex on sleep, and with these being two crucial parts of everyday life, myself and the team at TheDozyOwl.co.uk were eager to conduct a real-world study to determine once and for all if sex can improve sleep quality,” Alex Ion, sleep specialist at TheDozyOwl.co.uk, tells HUSTLERMagazine.com.
The Dozy Owl discovered that doggy-style was the best position to get a great night’s sleep, followed by lotus, the eagle, and the bridge. Conversely, the corkscrew, a horizontal 69, standing sex and the spider were the most likely to decrease REM sleep.
