I'm rewatching Friends on dvd right now, and I'm at this episode where Ross and Joey 'accidentally' end up sleeping cuddled up together, and when they wake up much to their surprise, had a great sleep because of it. So through the whole episode they are both sneaking off to 'sleep' together, because they felt safe I guess and the affection they recieved while sleeping helped them sleep better. Had a cute and funny ending with the rest of the gang watching them both sleeping curled up together on the couch, then both Ross and Joey trying to be all mucho like and pretend it didn't mean anything at all.:biggrin1: My point though is this - can two people of the same sex sleep together and it NOT be about sex ? Maybe just a shared need to have another body in the bed or on the couch that night, or maybe just the act of sleeping while being held makes it sometimes easier to make it through the night. It is a hungar for affection and close body contact I think, rather than a sexual need that drives people to do this. Much like the 'cuddle' parties that I hear so much about lately. Thoughts ? UPDATE - Just remembered the title of the episode in question, called ironically enough THE ONE WITH THE NAP PARTNERS.
