My bed is great for sleep but also great for that Netflix and chill orgasm.
It allows me to dive into the ultimate form of intimacy. Not only that! It is great for long telephone conversations. My bed accepts me for who I am and allows me to run into its covers whenever needed.

When my bed becomes a burden then it begins to take from my life. Statistics Canada has found about 40 per cent of men and 48 per cent of women don’t consistently have a refreshing night’s sleep.
