A California TikToker had the internet ready to dig into the mattresses after revealing that she and her husband regularly switch sides of the bed they sleep on.
Angelina Murphy, who posts as @renovatingourhome, dropped her boudoir bombshell in a video recorded around 1 million views.
“Okay, I really need to know if we’re alone in this — randomly choose which side of the bed you go on,” Murphy asked.
The Los Angeles resident often uploads tutorials on how to remodel his home. However, things on her feed quickly switched from “soft” to “extra firm” after followers saw Murphy reveal in her recent post that she and husband Skyler regularly switch positions.
“We don’t have a normal side of the bed that we sleep on,” the home remodeling expert admits in the clip, which shows her sitting on the couple’s bed. “It’s never talked about, we just randomly pick a side to sleep on.”
Murphy goes on to explain how she slept on her right side for one night before sleeping on her left side several nights in a row.
She says whenever she broaches the subject, people refer to her seemingly sacrilegious sleeping habit as the “craziest thing they’ve ever heard.”
Apparently hoping for confirmation online, Murphy shared Bed, Bath and Another Crazy Arrangement on TikTok, where viewers roared in protest at their apparent reciprocity.
“That’s the craziest thing I’ve ever heard,” exclaimed one viewer.
“I think I’m even more surprised that you guys found each other and are both okay with it,” said another.
A third quipped: “I’m single and have one side of my bed.”
“I slept on my wife’s side once… felt like I was completely at someone else’s home,” said one stunned commenter.
Meanwhile, others wondered how the couple arranged their bedside tables despite all the back and forth.
One traditionalist explained: “I have things. My stuff. On my side. Chapstick. water cup. Lotion. hair ties. My stuff.”
Murphy addressed those concerns in a follow-up video, explaining that she and her boyfriend get along with swappable phone chargers and “glorified trash drawers.”
Beauty products are now in the bathroom, not on the bedside table. per clip.
“We definitely didn’t expect this video to go viral, but we think all the comments and the general reaction are super funny!” Murphy shared The Independent.
Meanwhile, research has found that unusual sleep patterns can reportedly ruin relationships.
A recent survey found that annoying late-night habits like constant alarms and thunderous snoring have prompted a third of couples to file for a sleep divorce, in which the spouses sleep in separate rooms.
