No Cuddling Allowed In Germany

Taking a trip to Berlin this summer? After you learn a few key phrases, you should know something about the beds. Couples are not meant to sleep in the same bed, writes Michael Gorra on The Smart Set. “Each person in Germany is meant to sleep under his own covers…No snuggling under a common blanket.” While double beds might be sold, they’re only meant for people who sleep alone. Instead, two single mattresses are put side by side with separate bedding for each. It saddens me to know that people in Germany are missing out on spooning and such, but they’re probably getting better sleep. [The Smart Set]
