Doctor splits opinion by claiming you should NEVER sleep naked because it’s unhygienic – so do you agree?

SHOULD you sleep naked or in pyjamas? It is a big debate that pops up time and time again. 

But one doctor has attempted to put an end to this, and claim that you should NEVER sleep naked for a surprising reason – and he has totally divided people’s opinion. 

In a TikTok video, Anthony Youn MD, claims it is unhygienic to sleep in the nude because he claims the average person “farts 15-25 times a day.” 

Anthony, who goes by the name of @tonyyounmd, adds: “This can happen while you are sleeping and a scientific study proved that every time you pass gas you are spraying a tiny amount of fecal material [poo].

"This is true even if it's not a shart. The same study shows that your tighty whities will catch all of these particles.

"So for the sake of your bed partner, please sleep with your underwear on."


Dr Anthony, who works as a plastic surgeon in the US, adds in the on-screen caption: "And change your sheets regularly you disgusting animal.”

The video has been watched more than 7 million times and has caused a debate about bedroom farting etiquette.

One user said: "My husband and I will just keep air s***ing on each other I guess."

A second wrote: "Listen I've farted happily into my bedsheets for 39 years. You ain't gonna change me."

And a third added: "Nope. Blasting farts and breaking hearts, all day every day.”

Someone else joked: "Fifteen to twenty times a day? At least I overachieve in one area."

For the sake of your bed partner, please sleep with your underwear on

Many women argued they have been told by their own doctors to sleep naked or without underwear on for the health of their private parts.

Dr Anthony clarified in the comments: "For women, if your gynecologist tells you to sleep without underwear then listen to them.

"For guys – put your tighty whities on before bed!"
