first thing I thought of when I read my own title! GASP! SCANDALOUS!
No no, I mean literally SLEEPING with someone.
I'm not talking about sex you silly. 
I'm talking about waking up in the middle of the night, scared out of your mind because if you're like me and have crazy dreams, it's something you do a good bit, and being able to look next to you and find comfort in the person buried underneath a pile of blankets. How a relationship changes when you can go back to sleep curled into their back and invading their pillow space. You realize it's changed when you don't even think before you warm your freezing toes against their bare skin and they don't flinch away. It's about waking up glad to see them, knowing that you both look equally terrible. 

Those are some of the reasons why I'm glad I don't do the whole "random sex" thing. I love the actual love that goes into just simply sleeping with someone. There's no shame, and there's no overt sexiness.
But there is definitely something that speaks deep down to my very feminine heart when I can go to sleep with my awesome someone knowing on every level, that I am safe and wanted. 
And that?
Well that's sexy.
