  • sure, not always....but i guess.
  • yes. I am gay
  • Yes, if one or both of you are not physically attracted to each other.
  • It's happened twice outside of marriage.
  • Yes, I have done so with a male friend many times.
  • Possible, but who'd want to?! :)
  • I certainly do. One of the many bonuses of living a life that is not controlled by your genitals.
  • Yes, without a doubt
  • I could not do it.
  • Sure . Might get a little awkward though. Certain things just happen naturally...especially in the morning...not that I'd want to give her the wrong idea or anything:)
  • Easy -- if one is dead.
  • Not if I'm in there!
  • Erm, depends, if they're even a little bit attractive, probably not. If it's my sister, then we're ok...
  • I have with both sexes..not a problem...just a little self control and respect.
  • Of course.
  • Been there, done that, not a big problem.
  • For me to do that? No way! It would just be too awkward! For someone else, it might not be a big deal...
  • I have tried it three times: it was successful once. But to be fair, none of them were truly platonic.
  • I have slept in the same bed with a man and had nothing go on but sleep. Was it awkward? No, because the both of us knew nothing was going to happen.
  • Yep... BTDT.
  • I can't completely (and honestly) say that there would be no awkward moments involved, but it's very much so possible. I've been there and kind of mastered it.
  • Yes, it's possible. It's not like people have no self control and are in heat perpetually and just can't NOT have sex. We can be responsible, we can find someone NOT attractive sexually, we can be saving ourselves for someone else. It is very possible to care enough about yourself and even the other person's feelings and not do it with good motivation.
  • I think so. If you both feel that there is no connection sexually or romantically than it will be like friends hanging out.
  • I'm having a hard time figuring out why you'd want to sleep with a platonic member of the opposite sex. Sure, you could do it, but why? If there was no attraction whatsoever, I would find it awkward and probably just hit the couch. Now attraction without intercourse is easier to picture. At least then you could enjoy a good cuddle.
  • I sleep with lesbian women from time to time, and it's so nice to just be there.
  • Yup! Notta huge deal to me, most of my fiends are guys, and I could even crawl into bed with them intoxicated and feel comfy as if I'm in my own home :)
  • I know it's possible :)
  • It was hard work and I didn't get much sleep. I didn't do anything but I wanted to.
  • Sure if she was easy to be with, felt comfortable in that situation too, and it was a king-sized bed, then nada problema. On the other hand, if she smokes in bed, has a voice like Andy Devine or Leona Helmsley and has to talk on her cellular for 2 hours before she can sleep, and we're sharing a crib, then no way and muy problemo.
  • Yes. Do it all the time.
  • yes. it shouldn't be awkward unless there is something going on. then it might tend to get a little awkward.
  • Anything is possible. That is definitely possible if you are not attracted to the person. It's hard though.
  • I did that with two of my female friends for about two months....and I was in the middle the whole time. Actually, looking back on that...uh, nah...
  • at sleepovers there would be a bunch of us crashing on a mattress or the floor or the couch, and there was never anything going on -even when a few of our group members were "dating". honestly i think it's possible, just probably a rare thing these days
  • It's possible. But it would be hard... And by hard, I'm talkin' about ma dong! LOL!
  • Easy -- try being the only female in a touring band with no budget for separate hotel rooms. You sleep together, change in front of each other, sit around in your no air conditioning dive of a room in the heat of the summer watching the antiques roadshow in your underwear together...
  • Back in the days my friends would call me Jack Tripper. You know that guy on that sitcom Three company? If your not sure what Im talking about look it up on the web. Anyway, I lived with two really hot girls in a two bedroom appartment. Now because it was only two bedrooms I would sleep with one or the other. Never crossing that boundry. Now I no what your thinking. No Im not gay. The great thing about our relationship was they had HOT FRIENDS! Now were talken. To answer your question. yes its possible
  • Yep, with a king size bed and my wife in between me and the platonic woman. (~_^) BTW, since eric broke the ice on this one I hope you don't mind if I say that my member isn't always platonic. ;)
  • Yes. The only reason i think that it would be awkward is if there was some inkling of feelings between the 2 people and that is something that is pretty much always known before you decide to pass out next to your "friend". So if you are being hinest w yourself and know its not a problem honestly, then sure why not!
  • Yes. Sex isn't a virus, it is a choice. The Doctor
  • yep for sure - have done before and dare say i will do again. Some people just see you as mates and you see them as mates
  • Yes, I have done that before. We are just friends and I needed a place to sleep. Someone else nabbed the futon. I slept in her bed with her. It didn't get awkward at any point. Although, she did hog the covers...
  • of course it's possible.
  • Yes, especially if you find each other repulsive sexually.
  • Yes, when I was in high school my brother brought 2 of his friends who I grew up with on a ski vacation with my family. My brother being the bigger guy (6'5") said that he needed his own bed. Myself, and my brother's 2 friends (who I'd known since we were kids) we all ended up sleeping in the same pull out bed together. It was only awkward because we were sprawled in different directions. I got kicked, and woke up with one of the guy's foot in my face. :p
  • Put me in a bed with Judge Judgy or something and I won't be thinking about sex, I'll tell you that.
  • I have but it didnt last. Went on holiday with a guy friend and shared a bed the whole time cos it was cheaper that way but by the end of the holiday were hooking up. Just wish it had happened sooner!
  • yes, entirely possible.
  • yes it possible but some of us wish ohter wise.. i have shared my bed with a friend that was only into chicks and that was the only time i knew for a fact nothing was going to happend...lol
  • Yes, if I know she has AIDS!
  • It is quite easy of you both *know* deep down that that nookie is simply not on. But if one of you is thinking "I know I shouldn't - but just maybe..." then it is goinf to get awkward. If you are both certain that, for whatever reasons, the other is not on even the "in my wildest fantasies" list, then all is well.
  • I'd say yes, but still, you'd have to exercise a strong level of control, because it's only natural to want something more. I have slept in the same bed with one of my best friends numerous times, and we never had sex, but almost every time, we both were horny, and even once she got on top of me and we basically had everything but sex. We never felt awkward about it though.
  • Yea, but just depends on your relationship with the person. I have slept in the same bed with men and it never got awkward if it was a platonic situation. I was in a room with one guy once tho and he freaked me out. He slept on the floor. Just something about his personality. But you will know if it is beyond your comfort zone to sleep next to someone.
  • Absolutely.
  • yeah...i've done it before.
  • I think so..wuz platonic mean? Well, anyway, little kids don't worry about what gender they are, they'll willingly share a bed with no awkwardness. You know that kind of kid, the ones who say, "I gotta go pee!" in front of a roomful of adults. :)
  • Yeah, I've done it before. It helps if the friendship is strong enough for the two to be secure with doing that.Depends on their personalities as well, Some people just can't help but thinking bed=sex/being shy and making things awkward.
  • Drinking (in my experience) makes the platonic relationship turn all of a sudden into somebody you are "sorta into." I would probably not drink if you don't want anything to happen. If you don't have feelings for the person...why not just sleep in separate rooms? That ways you know for sure nothing will happen?
  • Married people do it all the time.
  • I don't see any real problem but at the same time, this is how things start. In a way it would be difficult if only beause it's an area or situation I've never been in.
  • I've done it before, with my best friend. I never saw him in "that way" but he did. so I had to end the friendship.
  • It can absolutely be done! Although not highly suggested if the other person is in a relationship, the significant other wont appreciate it or probably trust nothing happened. But I do it all the time with guy friends, and the only time its ever gotten awkward is where alcohol got nvolved!
  • yeah me and my male best mate slept in the same bed and we fancied the pants of eachother and we never had sex or anything and we not once found it arkward xx
  • Yeah, I've done it several times
  • No, but that doesn't keep me from trying, over and over and over again ...
  • Yes, especially if you aren't attracted to each pther physically. Even if you are attracted, it should make it fun, not awkward.
  • It's possible but not likely
  • I sure do and I think I was actually married to him.
  • Of course, being in bed with someone of the opposite sex doesn't have anything to do with having sex. To have sex you don't need to be in a bed or bedroom so there is no direct relation. I don't find it awkward or something that would lead to sex. It is enjoyable from the standpoint that the conversation will be different if only for the reason that men and women think differently in many areas. If a man and women can't be together without having intercourse, then it would apply to any area or room and even outdoors.
  • Yes. With coats and boots on.
  • It depends on the people involved and the nature of their relationship.
  • Yea...all of my friends are guys and we sleep in the same bed all the time and never do anything, and it's never awkward.
  • Completely depends on the people. I know it's possible for me, I've done it, but everyone is different.
  • Yes. If you're not sexually attracted to eachother, it would be like sleeping with your brother.
  • It is possible when all are real friends
  • chicks are the only friends you can sleep with without looking gay.
  • It is completely possible. I've done it many times without it being awkward or leading to anything. Just because you are sleeping with them doesn't mean you are "sleeping" with them.
  • Of course it's possible. I've done it.
  • Absolutely -- but I'm gay.. :0 It should be depending on the people involved. It's the same for me with friends that are guys why wouldn't it ? +
  • depending on their circumstances... if in the wild days from civilization male and female get all their cloths wet they might have to sleep naked together to keep warm... I know I would and could do it without sex. if there is a reason they are sleeping together (only one bed, no couch, etc) then yes, totaly possible and probably... provided neither thinks of the other as a desired mate.
  • No way man I have slept in the same bed with like 500 girls and every single one of them has been awkward in the morning when they wake up and see who else is in their bed.
  • Ive done it on a few occasions.. yes its certainly possible and wont get awkward if you know each other fairly well
  • Well maybe possibly ? The questions how good friends are they and did one or both of them feel any attraction to each other ? stupid question..Truth is when you have a man and woman and especially there is some attraction..then the answer to that question is no it cannot be platonic..a guy and a girl in the same bed...yes ..yes..there will be sex ! who are we kidding...awkward I know someone that met someone 11 years ago they were good friends..they hooked up and had great sex !!!the best !!but also they were best friends.. The man and woman kept in touch for 11 years via internet and phone calls ( different states) then just recently they hooked up again in the state where the man lives and they were still friends and they both rekindled what they had done 11 years ago...Now the awkward part that may occur is that one person may be feeling more than the other partner..possibly the girl now wants more out of the relationship that they have...but not sure how to approach it..she wants more but she is also having that type of buddy friendship and does not want to lose that...the total 11 years they saw each other 3 times...this could change by seeing each other perhaps once a year between the 2 friends , they talk and very close and the sex is great...do you want more out of the relationship or leave it as it is...may ruin the entire relationship or lose what they have forever...meaning the friendship and what they have..meaning the buddy sex can be over if feeling of love come between them..but they are perfect for each other in more ways than one.SO they both stay quiet and enjoy the best friends that they are, the relationship is great..lots of communication, passionate, understanding, their views are the same and the sex is tremendous...would you risk losing that friendship ?
  • i did the other night. it was fine...for me :S
  • I have!
  • Yeah, I used to sleep in the same bed as my male friend all the time and it was never awkward. I never thought anything of it, but he was gay so I guess it's a bit different.
  • if they are your best friend yes. it's special to be able to hold a friend so close without sexual expectations.
  • Of course it is. I have done it before, the only action that was going on in that bed was the crazy ass dreams I had.
  • sure...my friends do it...when drunk...I sleep on the couch...where only one person can sleep...I have skills
  • yes. as long as you know how to contorl yourself
  • Yes it's very possible
  • Well im gay, and ive slept in the same bed as my girlfriends and it never got akward because i dont view women as sexual objects. so yes its very possible lol
  • of course ive done it many times You have to really trust the person and make sure its completely clear your not interested in them in anyway
  • Yeah, but why would you? Fooling around is so much fun!
  • for sure, i have slept in the same bed as a few of my male friends... we're not interested in each other that way
  • When the two of you have a good and healthy sexual life already in your own private lives, then there is none of that thirst for the "just about anyone will do" kind of thoughts.
  • Yes! It would be difficult but yes.
