Human Bed-Warmer? Yea I like the sound of that.

I have to save that one in case Mrs. mickeyd happens to walk in at the wrong time..."But honey, I did not notice that the human bed-warmer was even in our bed!"

Quote:
Just when you thought hotels had exhausted the list of amenities they could offer - turn-down service, chocolate, a full year's supply of shampoo - the Holiday Inn in London's Kensington neighborhood is experimenting next week with a new enticement: a human bed-warmer.

It's not what you're thinking. Rather, according to Fox News, a hotel staff member in a fluffy white footie sleeper will slip between the sheets in your hotel room bed and render it, well, toasty warm. The staffer will leave, allowing you to hit the hay without freezing your toes off. (SkyNews.com has a photo of employees modeling the one-piece footie sleeper.)
Would You Use a "Human Bed-Warming Service"?

Only if it's Sean Connery moonlighting at his "other" job, and yes, at his present age.

I don't want anyone to warm my bed. But it would be nice if someone could go pee for me in the middle of the night.

Sean's cool but I'd prefer Adam Lambert. And yeah, I know he's gay. So what? I wouldn't mind a little guy-liner on my pillow and think he'd toast up the sheets quite nicely...

I'll take Javier Bardem as a bed warmer anytime...heh, heh, heh! But, in general, I'll take a pass on a human bedwarmer....ewwww...not appealing to me.

In case you don't know who this hot potato is, I present to you Spain's export to America, Javier Bardem:

Note to Javier: I can be had. Signed, Orchidflower

I am not keen on human bed warmer either. (If the I had female equivalent of Sean Connery in the bed, I'm pretty sure it would get warm quickly)

However, it is very reassuring to know that I am not the only one would love a substitute pee person. So if any of you entrepreneurial young dreamer want to kick start your early retirement, get cracking. BBam and I are two customers eagerly awaiting...

Cute bed warmers of the opposite sex aside - yes, even a prude like me can be swayed - this is a weird idea. It must be a publicity stunt to raise the occupancy. Surely, the guest bed can be warmed much more in 5 minutes (the time the human bed warmer will spent) with a handheld hair blower.

PS. We stayed in this hotel in London before, in one of their cheapest rooms, after staying in the Landmark Hotel for just one night.

I like my bed cold. I cannot fall asleep in a warm bed. But, with an unusually high metabolism, my body is a real furnace and I would make a perfect human bed-warmer for someone else...

Interesting, I was just thinking how nice a pre-warmed bed would be.

Remember the group Three Dog Night? From Wikipedia:

The official commentary included in the CD set Celebrate: The Three Dog Night Story, 1965-1975 states that vocalist Danny Hutton's then-girlfriend June Fairchild suggested the name after reading a magazine article about indigenous Australians, in which it was explained that on cold nights they would customarily sleep in a hole in the ground whilst embracing a dingo, a native species of wild dog. On colder nights they would sleep with two dogs and if a night was especially cold, it was a "three dog night".
