    Just curious as it seems my wife and I have the same sides of the bed as our parents.

    Please vote based on your side of the bed while you're sitting or lying in it with your back against the headboard, not as if you're looking at the bed from the footboard.

    What say ye?

    Vote based on your position while lying in bed. If someone walks up to the foot of the bed and says you're on their left, you're on the right side of the bed.

    Men typically sleep on the side of the bed closest to the door.

    Doesn't apply to my master BR where the entry door is an equal distance to either, but interesting thought. I did sleep closer to the door at my last house.

    My wife wants me to sleep on that side closest to the door regardless of it being the master bedroom, a hotel room, etc.

    As far to the right as possible. Unless there is more than one kid that has joined us, then it is the couch. We have a sectional, so I mix it up downstairs.

    My wife and I have discussed switching just to freak the kids out when the blearily walk in in the middle of the night.

    Equidistant from the door. She wants easy access to bathroom Since she wakes for work early.

    I'm our first house, on the left- closest to the door. Then we moved six years later. And I stayed on the left(further from door). We moved again, and I stayed on the left. After 19 years sleeping witht the same woman we sleep on the same side all the time regardless of where we are- hotel, friends house, Mom's etc..

    But what if you sleep face down? Wouldn't that make the left side the right? :)

    I've got a little sliver of property on the left side, and yes, it's closest to the door.

    wife sleeps long way on the right, dog sleeps diagonal near the foot of the bed on the left side, I sleep in a tiny ball in the upper left corner.
    my parents slept opposite to that.

    My wife always sleeps on the side closer to the bathroom. That's basically the only rule. Oh, and this too:

    nailed it. Also, according to her, the uncharted territory does not exist, even though I can clearly see it over her shoulder:huh

    When my GF and I are together I sleep on the side of the bed nearest the door.
