enjoying the drool on my pillow

Like many people, I drool on my pillow in my sleep. I love the smell of the little hardened patch of fabric when the saliva dries up. I will cuddle my pillow like a security blanket, bury my face in the drool spot and inhale deeply. I will even go to lengths to avoid washing my pillow case so my drool spot can become layered and have a stronger smell. I realise this is probably horribly unhygienic and abnormal...just wondering if anyone out there does this too.

Is It Normal?

  • I love dribbling on my pillow his name is Webby. A mixture of wet and dribbly. I have drooled on him since I was young. I love smelling his dribbly patches so much, it is comforting to me. My partner also loves snuggling with Webby as well but he is not too keen on the smell lol. I used to hold webby up to my face and sort of let the drool leak out of my mouth on purpose and then put the wet patch onto my cheek and pull it off slowly. Webby is an important part of my life. He has his own personality. I am weird I know. lol.

  • I'm a guy and nearly 22 and do exactly the same thing. I don't purposely drool on my pillow but I must do in my sleep. After a few days my pillow will smell "nice" to me and I will sometimes just lie down and bury my head in it and cuddle it and take deep breaths. I find it helps me to relax. I love cuddling and snuggling my pillow when I go to sleep! I hate having my "smelly" pillow changed and have to have the new covers on it the exact same way. I go mad if someone changes my bed and the pillows are swapped round... And I can tell! The kind of gross bit is my "smelly" pillow is all stained and yellowing even under the top and under pillow case! Anyway... Just my thoughts on the matter... I have to admit it is nice to know I'm not the only one and it's pleasing to see 55% of people think it's normal! :-)

    • I'm so glad I'm not the only one who does exactly that. I do this weird thing with my tongue while my mouth is kinda pursed and hit my tongue against the back of my bottom front teeth or something...? I don't know what it is. I'm so weird haha.

      • Dude. Can't even express the joy in finding freaks like me, Haha!! But I wanted to ask, is it like, sucking on your tounge? Like...have you seen a baby sucking , like mimicking a pacifier in its mouth? I've had this issue since I was a baby. I'm in my mid 20s now. It usually happens every time my mouth is just closed and I don't have much to concentrate on or actively think about. Its embarrassing, makes my lips poke out and my entire mouth moves. Good to know I'm not alone!!!

        • Your not alone! I am 45 years old now and have had this "problem" since I was very young. My sister has always laughed at me and still does at our age! She would say stop "sucking" your pillow.
          I have always wondered if anyone else had this habit. Seems I can not go to sleep without it, but have gone on business trips without my pillow and do fine without it. But as soon as I get home and I see my pillow I have to put it to my face hard. Its weird, but can not stop this bizarre habit.

  • Oh sh*t, I thought I was alone with this! I've sniffed a pillow and sucked on my tongue for as long as I can remember. I had a special pillow when I was younger but I asked my dad to burn it when I was 12 (I was about to start high school) it didn't matter anyway because before long my new pillow started smelling good again. I'm 31 now with a three year old daughter. I don't carry my pillow around with me anymore but I do sniff it at night and suck on my tongue to fall asleep. I change my pillow case every few months because I hate the look of it being dirty but a few days later and its good again. I quite often suck on my tongue throughout the day, especially if I'm tired. I roll my tongue back and suck it, sometimes my upper back teeth can ache if I've sucked for a long time. I can't ever imagine stopping, I think I have this habit for life. My husband doesn't seem to mind so I'm OK with it. I'm relieved to know I'm not alone though! Thanks for sharing :)

  • Since for as long as I can remember, I have always been fond of my pillow. I would take it everywhere with me, I would cuddle it and smell it. And don't even think of washing it, because if my scent is washed away I would be so mad that I had to build it up again. My family always referred to it as "sucking" my pillow, although I didn't literally suck the pillow, I just held it up to my nose, sniffed it, and moved my tongue up and down the roof of my mouth making sort of a soft clicking sound. One time I can remember feeling betrayed by my grandma because I discovered that she had threw my pillow out in the garbage and tried to replace it with a new pillow, so I dug my pillow out of the garbage and ever since that day as a kid I keep my pillow hidden away from the world, I am now 32 years old and still sniff my torn up raggedy pillow, while playing with the fabric with my fingers, only now I have started to rub my pillow on parts of my body so I can smell my own body scents (not the armpits). I find that doing these (in my mind) "odd behaviors" brings me comfort and calms me down when I'm stressed or feeling bad. Although it brings me comfort in doing this ritual, and knowing that there are others out there like me. I am very very ashamed and embarrassed of it and I hide it from everyone. Will I ever stop doing this? Is this part of the reason why I have never been in a relationship and why I don't have a significant other? Who knows, but I am definitely "different" from everyone else.

    P.s. I am the middle child, who knows how big of a role that plays in this.

    Thanks for reading!!!

  • pillows can smell if you drool on them and not wash the pillow case, that is how it works with me. It is a comfort thing. My Webby is my best mate and confidant and I mark him as mine by drooling on him. yes he is a male pillow with a personality all his own. I should give him his own facebook page, what do you guys think? lol.

  • I can totally relate! I also have a smelly pillow. My father gave it to me when I was in 4th grade. Now i'm 25 years old & I'm still attached to it. I consider my pillow as my stress reliever. I love it so much. I can't live without it. :)

  • wow, I honestly thought I was the only weird one that does this.I have a pillow case that I sleep with called pilly and I drool on it when I sleep and I love the smell when it's dried up. I have never washed my pillow case cause I don't want the smell to go away. It also makes me sleep, I have a habit off moving my tongue around in my mouth while smelling my pillow case :)

  • I love the smell of my pillow. I've had it since I was a baby and I hate washing it. When I was younger if my parents washed it I would be so annoyed lol. I swore I was the only one who loved this , it makes me sleepy and comfy & I hate sleeping without it. Makes me suck my tongue and fall asleep really fast. I'm 20 now and my bf is ok with it, so I don't think this habit is ever going to stop lol

    • My boyfriend of four years eventually made me stop with my stuffed pooh bear that I've had since a baby. I smelled the shit out of its arm, I always had that bear attached to my face. Anyways he was the first person I moved in with, first time someone was constantly around me....I felt weird and embarrassed , going to find my pooh bear at age 23 to sniff and watch tv. If I was home, I had to sniff it. I'd put a little spit on his arm, let it dry and omg I was in heaven. my family started judging me. then I had a baby, now I just sniff his head, Haha. I never thought pooh and I would be apart. I thought how can I fall asleep without pooh?? Good that your bf accepts it,mine did for awhile then he was like ok it's weird stop it now. Haha. I don't think about it much now, life without pooh...but I'm with you , fellow spit scent lover.

  • Omg! We're the same! I love it, I would inhale it like you and it would feel so nice! I would hug the pillow and take deep breaths like it was a drug. And i'm a guy. I cant stand using other pillows or newly washed pillows. If it was newly washed I would sometimes spit on it. Haha kinda weird. The smell kinda turns me on too! Haha i love drool on my pillow when it dries!

    • Haha don't feel bad cuz your a "guy". So am i, you don't see too many dudes getting on this site to admit they love their own smell on their pillow. I am the same as you (only i don't get turned on by it) my "smelling pillow" is only for cuddling and smelling, don't even think of using it as a pillow
