Platonic Bed

Sleep with your friends
  [vote for,

At 3 feet wide and 12 feet long the platonic bed is perfect for “just friends” who want to sleep together. The centrally located double-size pillow lets you sleep noggin-to-noggin while keeping the remainder of your respective erogenous zones well separated; perfect for pairs of people tired of lonely nights who want to remain romantically uninvolved.

Variations on a theme "Placing a bolster - a long large pillow - down the center in the bed." [Klaatu, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       If you sleep with someone often enough to warrant purchasing a bed specifically for the purpose, I get the feeling that the "just friends" act is a bit of mutual self-denial.   

       There's nothing wrong with sleeping with a platonic friend. But I think that there does begin to be something wrong with doing it as a matter of habit. Relationships like that have a way of becoming more than you meant them to be. Which is especially awkward when one or both of you aren't single.   

       'Course, that's just one man's advise. Take it or leave it.

       Michael Jackson has one of these. I swear!   

       Ditto, mutual self-denial. A great expense for a small thing.

       sounds like a perfect way to spread head lice , and abstain from spreading the other kind

       Seriously, [AO], who you trying to *sleep* with?

       "Is that a double-size pillow between your legs or are you just happy to sleep with me?"

       If you've got a bedroom big enough to fit one of these in, you could always install a partition wall. Or twin beds.

       or bunk beds. Much more fun.
oneoffdave, Feb 11 2004

       you get the top bunk...
k_sra, Feb 11 2004

       just watch out when I drop my leg over the side.

       Isn't the brain the most erogenous zone in the body?

       Hehe, good, ato_de; good.

       I'd prefer a Satanic Bed - it's a foot wide and everyone has to sleep on top of everyone else and rotate the order all night - but giving you a + as I like your idea

       I'm pretty sure that the idea that 'sleeping' with someone automatically means sex, (aside from the literal slang translation) is based on our wealthy, puritanical culture that can afford private beds and such. Plenty of whole families sleep in one bed in other parts of the world.
Darkelfan, Nov 13 2005

       Why not just get twin beds and sleep in the same room? That way you can move the beds far apart from the erogenous zones.   

       I still like the idea though.. it sort of tells the woman that you want her to spend the night however you do not intend on any "hanky panky". Even though its denial at first, it tends to work its way towards what you REALLY want without all of the pressure associated with it. In a way it says, "Id like to sleep with you but only if its OK with you"

       Good idea, but its too wide to work.   

       most college dorm beds are roughly 3' wide...

       It's totally an artifact of this sexualized culture, this idea that you could never possibly lie down next to someone without slipping down the slope into orgasmic penetration. There's a very simple device which accomplishes this same purpose in most cultures: a tiny amount of self-control. <3

       Or a cattle prod. <3 :)

       I go away for a couple of days, come back, and now it seems the whole bakery is smothered in <3 <3 <3. I demand a cessation, or at the very least an explanation of the reason why these formerly peacable 3s are suddenly all out trying to anally compromise our poor chevrons.

       Or are these people trying to tell us that their IQ (or some other bodily measurement) is less than 3?
