Sleeping on the stomach leads to more sexual dreams

If you found out that sleeping in a certain position influences your dreams, would you consider changing your sleeping habits?

A study published in Dreaming acclaims that people who sleep face down on their stomach with their arms stretched above their head have more sexual dreams. These are the conclusions drawn after surveying 670 people about their sleeping positions.

Researchers don’t have a scientific explanation for this, but study author Calvin Kai-Ching Yu, says this could be due to the fact that when sleeping on the stomach, certain parts of the body are pressed against the bed sheets and this leads to constricted breathing and stimulation.
