Do You Sleep in the Buff?

Let's get personal for a moment, shall we? Do you sleep naked?
There's a new study out that out of a survey of married, mostly-white, over 35 year olds, most respondents sleep in clothing. According to the researchers, "34% of U.S. women and 38% of men sleep nude with their partner."

I flag the race of the the majority of respondents because I'm wondering how the numbers would break down on a larger scale. Do other minority groups sleep naked more comparatively? Does your age matter? Gender obviously matters, but what about your sexual orientation? Does relationship status play a role?

Another study out last month says that Americans love their pajamas - 74% of their respondents.

Other than trips where it would be inappropriate, I can't remember the last time I slept with clothing on in my own bed. I know I was sleeping in the nude by high school at least - and it didn't matter if I was sleeping with someone else or not.

So let's have it, Projectors. Do you sleep in the buff? Where do you fall on the demographics map? And what are your theories on why more people sleep in clothing than in the nude?
