You used to see it on TV and movies a lot. Were you comfortable? How did you sleep? What were the circumstances? Was there really nowhere else to sleep? Any favorite or remembered TV or movie scenes?
Have You Ever Slept in a Bathtub?

I wouldn’t recommend it.

Yes, once. I had a stomach virus and the tub was slightly more comfortable than the bathroom floor.

Hi mom @ R1! Yes we do that a lot in the family: it's really to die for and you should do it too.

I don't drink anymore (I'm lucky if I have a few over the coarse of a year), but when I used to, I had this terrible habit of wanting to get into a full bath while hammered. Idk how I didn't drown because I'd fall asleep for the night in there.

Where? When? What movies and which TV shows? I've never heard of this.

As a kid I used to sleep in the bathroom sometimes during IBD flares. I found the floor more comfortable than the tub, though the tub's a better option if you're concerned about someone flinging open the door.

yes. One of my foster parents had an iron claw foot tub. When it would get to be 100 degrees and humid I would grab my pillow and a sheet and go sleep in the cool metal tub.

Is sleeping the same as passing out?

Yes, about 15 years ago when my apartment had bed bugs. It was the only place safe from them until the exterminator came.

I thought people only did that in bad neighborhoods, where bullets would fly at night.
So, no. Floors are softer and more spacious.

Technically yes, in the sense that I've nodded off to sleep a couple times. No alcohol or drugs were involved, just a too long, too relaxed soak.
Not in OP's sense of intentionally making a bathtub a place of sleep or rest.

I dont even get why anyone would consider a bathtub a good substitute for a bed. Just sleep on the floor or on a couch

I’ve fallen asleep in hottubs before, but that’s not really the same thing. I’m too tall to be able to get comfortable enough to sleep in a regular tub. Wouldn’t the floor be better if there’s no bed?

People used to sleep in the bathtub when it was hot, before air conditioning.

I’ve fallen asleep while taking a bath (I was sick) but can’t imagine getting comfy on a cold hard surface.

My mother was a strange and diseased person who banned us from using the shower, screaming about molds and humidity destroying the bathroom tiles. We could only take a bath and not splash too much. Post-bath, we had to show that every corner and nook and cranny had been wiped down and dried to her specs of the moment. She'd scream and carry on hysterically if she thought she saw water drops and we got to hear for the rest of the night how we were trying to destroy the house she worked so hard for.
Do you ever wonder how you were produced by such fucked up, mentally ill specimens?

^My point is I haven't slept in one. The bathtub was emotionally overloaded with the screaming harridan in the background and I had to be as quick and unobtrusive as possible.

I have…when I was about 10. Visiting my grandparents for Christmas one year and the house was very full. I was the youngest so a bed was made up for me in the bath. There were lots of quilts & cushions but It was still very uncomfortable.

Once in a hotel in Yugoslavia. It was unbearably hot.

I've been falling asleep in the tub for forty years. Our tub was metal when I was a child. I would fall asleep when unsupervised, my parents would check on me, let the water out, and I'd turn over, ass to the air, so I could absorb the residual heat...still asleep.
I've never feared drowning in the tub. Now, I usually shower. But sometimes I bathe with lavender epsom salts and doze off in the hot, steaming water. It's lovely. I wake when the water gets cold, and get out.

Slept in one during Hurricane Andrew. I was a little kid, my mom shoved us in there for safety.

People with bedbug infestations in their homes often sleep in bathtubs because bedbugs aren't big fans of bathrooms - the tiles and bathtub surface are too slippery for those little fuckers to climb on.

Not in a tub, but on a bathroom floor. My dad helped me move cross-country and we had to get a hotel room. We ended up by chance in an accessible room so there was no bathtub, just a flat spot in the corner with a shower.
Well, I discovered that my dad snores so loudly, I had to take all the bedding into the bathroom and sleep on the floor with the door closed (and I could still hear him!)
The funny thing was, after me and my sister moved out for college, my mom started sleeping in my old bedroom. For a long time I thought they might be having problems and were going to end up getting divorced. Nope. She just couldn't sleep with his snoring either.
Eventually he ended up on CPAP and my mom moved back into the bedroom with him.
