But one doctor claims you should never sleep naked – and for one very compelling reason.
Anthony Youn MD, a plastic surgeon in the United States, posted a TikTok video claiming the nighttime habit is very unsanitary.

The real problem, he added, is that “a scientific study has shown that every time you open the gas, a tiny amount of feces is sprayed”. [poo]”.
“The same study shows that your tight whites catch all of these particles,” he added.
“So, for the sake of your bed partner, please sleep in your underwear.”

One woman wrote: “But I heard that it is good for women not to sleep with their underwear on, because it is good to air them out?”

And a third added: “Obgyn has been said to be healthier if possible to go without it.”
But some people seemed grateful for the warning.
Another user wrote: “So yesterday I washed my bedclothes and last night I ruined them. Got it.”
