Does it sound weird to have two separate blankets when sleeping with your partner? Maybe you’ll change your mind.


I assume. I’m not a big Spooner. I love cuddling when I go to bed with my partner, but when it’s time to sleep, I appreciate resting all my limbs in bed at once. Separate blankets sound unusual and even a bit weird to some people, but I found so many benefits with my ex-partner — who is Belgian with German roots — that now I don’t look back.

In Scandinavia and Germany, it’s pretty common for couples to have different sleeping arrangements that include two separate blankets.

As Latina, I was reluctant at first, but I learned with time that physical intimacy could be appreciated as well as individuality, even in bed. So, let’s check the benefits of this two-blanket method?

You Both Get A Better Night’s Sleep

Perhaps you get too hot under the comforter at night and your partner too cold. If this is the case, you might notice him or her stealing the covers. When this happens, you may disrupt each other's sleep.

Temperature is a huge factor in sleep and in the ability to stay asleep. People sleep well in different temperatures, so individual covers mean no more stealing blankets.


It Increases Intimacy

How so? If both of you get a good night’s sleep, it can positively impact your sex life. According to a 2015 study, the more sleep females got, the more interested they were in sex the next day. Even if it sounds counterintuitive to have separate blankets, you’re more likely to connect the following day.

If you and your partner go to bed or wake up at different times, you don’t want to wake them up just because you’re leaving the bed and jostling their blanket.

Separate beddings allow both you and your partner to wake up according to your natural rhythm without having to disturb each other’s sleep.

You Can Adjust Your Sleeping Preferences

Sleeping with separate blankets can solve many misaligned sleep preferences. Some people have different preferences when it comes to room and body temperature at night, or you or your partner are a blanket hog. So, having your own blanket could be beneficial in these cases.
