Just trawling through the shared images out there in Internet land and am having great difficulty finding an image of a couple happily in their own room, but shown in the same image. Dare I cry discrimination? Or grab a camera and start snapping myself? EXCUSE ME Getty photographers, but could you please arrange to […]
Feature in You Mag, Daily Mail….
And yet ANOTHER great article about separate sleeping to share. This time it’s from the UK and features………………………………….. ME!! And my aforementioned friend and co-author Dr Neil Stanley. (And again…. when will a publisher see the light and sign us up??)
FiveThirtyEight analyses separate sleeping…
FiveThirtyEight is a polling aggregation website created by Nate Silver. Sometimes referred to as 538, the website takes its name from the number of electors in the United States electoral college. While the site’s beginnings were focussed on political analysis, a post yesterday strayed into my fav subject – separate sleeping. Written by Mona Chalabi, […]
Looks like reality is indeed keeping up with the Kardashians….. and our friendly Yeezus – Kanye West.

A space to call your own…

When we sign up for an intimate relationship, the issue of each person’s space can become quite complex. Physical and emotional space […]
Well written article about separate sleeping from a man’s perspective. Not a common event – so I’m excited. So excited I commented.

And following that thought […]
The fabric that binds…
Have you ever considered the impact that cultural influences have on decisions you make and social patterns and expectations to which you conform?
