WE'RE A COMFORT, THEY'RE A CONCERN (via Tom Morin):

Bed sharing 'drains men's brains' (BBC, 7/20/06)

Sharing a bed with someone could temporarily reduce your brain power - at least if you are a man - Austrian scientists suggest.

When men spend the night with a bed mate their sleep is disturbed, whether they make love or not, and this impairs their mental ability the next day.

The lack of sleep also increases a man's stress hormone levels.

According to the New Scientist study, women who share a bed fare better because they sleep more deeply.

It's Darwinism at work, I tells ya. After millions of years of sleep deprivation caused by snoring and other rude noises emanating from the un-distaff side of the bed, women have evolved into sound sleepers.

Thank you Sir Charles.
