Question: Sleeping with hands down pants

 SR! - Fri Dec 04, 2009 2:39 pm

This is very random but I am wondering why this happens. My wife has asked me the question of why do I sleep with my hands down my pants sometimes, and I have no idea why this happens. I just wake up to her asking why I sleep with my hands down there. Hope someone can help.

Why is this a problem? Is it possible that is where you like to keep your hands when yoou are sleeping?
