Cute Co-Ed reported that the two of them did not share our bed - a double - complaining that it was "too small". So sister slept in our other daughter's bedroom, while her husband slept in our bedroom.
"Strange Mistress.....we always seem to have plenty of room."
"I know Slave....."
If anything, sometimes I get the complaint from Mistress that I'm not cuddled up close enough to her.
Then I saw this article over the weekend in the 580 blog "How many couples sleep in separate beds".
It purports to quantify the phenomenon, which I thought had died when Lucy and Ricky went into re-runs. There are a couple of helpful charts.
It turns out that only 54% of us married couples (on in "live together" relationships) "never" sleep in separate beds. That's a majority, for sure, and would be a landslide in a Presidential election, but leaves a whole lot of couples with cold toes at night - at least some of the time.
The survey drilled down into the motivations of people for sleeping apart, and came up with the following:
So snoring seems to be the biggest culprit, though it seems that is something easily dealt with with the proper motivation, doesn't it? And while Mistress and I do have different temperature preference (she likes the AC cranked up, I like it a little warmer) that can be solved by snuggling up a little closer, can't it? We'd be curious to hear our readers comments on how often they end up in separate beds (if ever) and why? But some of these explanations seem pretty lame to us.
But one thing not showing up in the statistics is when your hot, dominant wife is sleeping with another guy. Tonight, for example, Mistress has another sleepover date with her lover J. They're getting in as much quality time as they can before his son returns home. So Slave will be sleeping alone tonight.
"Remember you'll be in the cage Tuesday, Slave", was her reminder of the protocol of the day.
She even had me pick out a bottle of wine for her to bring over and help lubricate their fun. Luckily, there was a nice bottle of white in the vast UCTMW corporate wine cellar particularly suitable for such an occasion.
Rest assured that Slave plans to fully exploit his wake-up sex opportunity this morning, because it's going to be lonely in the UCTMW executive suite tonight.
