Any suggestions for waterbed configurations. For decades the singuy and I slept on a waterbed and liked it. We started off with a king-size bag-o-water that cost all of $19.95 in the mid 70’s, water not included. Said bag just kind of gelated on the floor and was cold. Clothing it with sheets was difficult.
We later moved on to a giant bag’o’water in a wood enclosure with a heater underneath. This was light years better. But the sheets still resisted.
We eventually elevated the wood enclosure to make getting in and out easier, old timers disease. Sheeting it was still difficult.
In the 90’s we got a “soft” side water bed which leaked all the fucking time, grrrrr. But standard size sheets fit, w00t.
By the year 2005 we thought maybe we should grow up and get a real bed, which is where we find ourselves today. The sheets stay on w00t. The bed sucks, unwoot.
We are ready to go back to a waterbed. Unfortunately the water bed industry seems to be stuck in the 70’s. Has there really been no improvement? The furniture associated with water beds is atrocious. Should I really just buy another big ole bag o water and encase it in a simple wood frame? Aesthetics be damned?
