I sleep on both my left and right side. I twist and turn. I don't really like sleeping on my back. When lying on my sides I either see my laptop in the darkness beside me or a giant massive plushie of Totoro. Facing the ceiling would be boring.

Right side is winning!(<-added one to the 'right side' vote) (^_-)

I think this is because most ppl are right-handed and therefore tend to sleep on the right. What do you guys think? Does handedness help in deciding which side one sleeps in?

Definately, when you decide to roll on your side, the placement of your hands plays a major part in achieving a comfortable position. It's easy for your main hand, but placing the off-hand might actually require some thought (unacceptable when tired). I can easily see that the right-handed would prefer to sleep on their right side.

I'm left-handed but I sleep on my right. I try to sleep on my left, but in the morning I end up on the right.

I usually start with one side (left or right), and wake up facing the other direction. Lately I've been sleeping more on my chest and waking up on my back. I also tend to push up against walls so my bed is always in a corner.

I've only fallen from the bed a few times though, lol. But I am one heck of a snorer. I usually sleep like the dead, although I envy those who can fall asleep within minutes. It usually takes me a half hour - hour before I'm out.

On my back. And I need at least 4 pillows. 2 for my head, 1 for my legs and 1 more to shut my eyes with.

i always sleep either on my right or left side curled up like a kitten rofl, i use one corner of my bed to sleep in, curled up in the corner with a pillow and blanket, ive slept on one couch seat before at a party when i was drunk, they were like o.o because i was so curled up that i only took one seat ont he couch to sleep on and i slept that way the entire evening :3 kitten curl ftw its comfy and warm

i cant stand sleeping on my back or chest, same as i cants tand sleeping normally with my legs stretched etc. on my side, cause it feels a lot colder to me, i like to have it warm but i hate wearing thick pj's thus i always wear thin shirts, tops and shorts or no pants at all in bed, i hate waking up with with sweaty long sleeves on >.<

EDIT: now that i talked about it no curled up function, but does anyone else sleep the way i do

^Dude, you sleep like my cat, Lolz! I don't think anyone else would sleep like you do...quite a unique sleeper! (^_^)

Anyway, it seems like handedness can help in deciding which side you sleep on. Although there are a few exceptions....

Quoted for truth. I sleep the same way. Some times I find myself sleeping the the fetal postion more often than not (does that count as sleeping on you're left or right side?).

I know someone who'll sleep in like a box on top of his legs, feet tucked under, head tucked in.

Hmmm, well, I usually sleep on my right side and later shift to my back in the middle of the night. I also have had this odd habit since I was in grade school of sleeping with 3 or more pillows. I have the ones under my head, then one to my left and one to my right. This is so that no matter which side I turn on in the night, I always have one to wrap around and hug. I guess putting a pillow between your knees is actually good for your back? Keeps everything straight.

Right side hugging a pillow and another under my head. Of all positions I do not like sleeping on my back even though I used to do so on occasion. I get sleep paralysis many times when I do which is scary.

I sleep on either side, whichever one renders me facing the nearest wall. I'm not particular about which side I sleep on so I'll choose "others".

Edit: I've also found that I sleep on my front with my head sideways. :0

I normally start on my back, and then when I start falling asleep I roll over onto my stomach, with one arm under the pillow and one arm over. That's how it normally goes every night. If I can't sleep, which happens often, I just roll around alot.

I just got a new pillow so that could change things.
