5 REASONS WOMEN SHOULD STOP PICKING OUT THE BEDDING
PART ONE: A GUIDE FOR WOMEN
Ah, the age-old battle of the sexes—once again rearing its ugly head in the bedroom. No, not that way (get your mind out of the gutter!). I'm talking about the bedding wars, where women dominate with their frilly, floral Cottage Core prints, and men desperately cling to their threadbare sports-themed sheets from college. But ladies, did you know that your love for all things feminine could actually be a detriment to your sex life? It's true! Here are five reasons why you should stop picking out the bedding and give your man a chance to flex his interior design muscles.
1. Erectile Dysfunction: Death by Doilies
Who would've thought that a sea of lace and ruffles could lead to erectile dysfunction? I mean, it's not like the sight of your grandmother's curtains has ever caused a rise in anyone's blood pressure. But hey, if your man's manhood is struggling under the weight of all those flower petals, maybe it's time to reevaluate your bedding choices.
2. Sleepless Nights: Tossing and Turning in a Floral Nightmare
Nothing screams "romantic getaway" quite like a bed covered in flowers reminiscent of an English garden. But while you're dreaming of frolicking through the meadows, your partner is likely tossing and turning, haunted by visions of being smothered by an avalanche of peonies. Turns out, he might prefer a solid color or something more minimalistic.
3. Too Much of a Good Thing: When Bedding Becomes a Scent-sory Overload
The Cottage Core aesthetic isn't complete without the scent of lavender wafting through the air. Unfortunately, not everyone's olfactory senses are keen on being assaulted by the smell of a flower shop on steroids. Unless you're trying to put your partner into an allergic coma, it's best to stick with subtle, neutral scents that won't make your bedroom feel like a greenhouse.
4. Snuggle Sabotage: The Unbearable Lightness of Linens
Men are simple creatures. Give them a soft, comfortable place to lay their head, and they're happy. But throw in a dozen throw pillows, a quilted bedspread, and a canopy of sheer drapes, and suddenly, bedtime becomes an obstacle course. Remember, the goal is to make your bed inviting, not something that requires an instruction manual to navigate.
5. An Affront to Masculinity: When Bedding Becomes an Identity Crisis
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, your man wants to feel like a man, even in the bedroom. When he's surrounded by frills, pastel colors, and dainty patterns, it's hard for him to maintain his sense of self. Throw him a bone by incorporating some more gender-neutral or masculine elements into your bedding design. Who knows? Maybe he'll even start making the bed every once in a while. 15.So ladies, do your sex life a favor and let your man have a say in the bedroom décor. Trust me, your relationship (and your partner's sanity) will thank you.
