According to a survey by hotel chain Travelodge, more men said they take teddy bears to bed. The survey found 20% of respondents that were male were teddy bear cuddlers, while only 15% of women admitted to the practice.

The study was commissioned so Travelodge could determine whether or not promotion for their new pillow with arms, called a Cuddilow, is worth the effort. 63% of the 2,000 participants said a bedtime cuddle was necessary for them in order to sleep.

They also found that 8% of females spray their nightclothes or pillow with aftershave belonging to their partner. When asked, a man's #1 cuddler would be Angelina Jolie, and Johnny Depp for women. 9% also admitted being scared when sleeping alone.
