Goodnight kisses now `thing of the past`
The sleep behaviour study found that 54 per cent of Brits choose to turn away and sleep with their back to their lover in a bid to get a good night’s sleep.
In fact, a quarter of lovers surveyed say they cannot bear their partner touching them while they are sleeping, the Telegraph reported.
Moreover 90 per cent of couples no longer utter the three important words ‘I love you’ before turning out the lights, the study of 2,000 couples by hotel chain Travelodge revealed.
Further it found that the most common sleeping positions are those in which we do not face each other.
Relationship psychologist Corrine Sweet says that during sleep, body language cannot be faked so your sleeping position can reveal a lot about your relationship.
According to her, the most popular sleeping position for couples is with both in the fetal position, back to back.
