Real talk: cuddling is one of those things that sounds great in theory — we’ve all pictured a serene, romantic moment in our minds, tangled up in a cozy embrace with the one we love, sharing a sweet story as we drift off to sleep. But in practice, it’s usually a big mess. If you’ve got long hair, it gets caught in places, you run the risk of drooling on your boo’s chest, someone gets too sweaty, you can’t figure out what to do with that one arm and wonder why there’s no way to get rid of it for the time being… all of these issues prevent what should be a moment of pure bliss and creates a little bit of a disaster. Well fear not, friends — a genius human being has created the perfect solution to your cuddling dilemmas.
The Cuddle Mattress (yes, this is now a thing!) promises to let you “sleep better, cuddle longer” and “lets you hug your better half intimately without any wrist or arm problems” (win!) and it’s designed with strategically placed slits to allow you to nestle your arm in them before it goes dead with feeling. The mattress is made with a memory gel material designed to be both supportive and comfortable, giving you a blissful night’s sleep cuddled up with your lovah.
It’s not a particularly new product, as it was designed back in 2007 by Mehdi Mojtabavi, but it’s just now available stateside for all of our cuddling needs. It retails for about $1,650, and while it may not be the cheapest purchase you’ll make, the investment in your relationship and nighttime happiness may just make the price totally worth it.
