    Why do men hate throw pillows?

    Just changed to my winter duvet cover and it has lots of pillows that match (like 6). I know the first thing I'm going to hear is "why do we have to have all of these pillows".

    What's wrong with throw pillows?

    They serve no purpose. They're not comfortable and it's just something that has to be moved daily

    Their very name tells you they are non-functional. They are to be thrown, not to be useful.

    Guys like useful.

    Because I sleep with one pillow and no blankets, I don't want extra **** on my bed.

    FYI Its not a pillow if you can't use it as a pillow. Meaning if you get angry if someone uses a "throw pillow" to rest their head, then it doesn't make any sense to have such pillow and its only a waste of everyone's time and money.

    This. THey may look nice, but they suck to rest your head on, and are usually in the way, most often when you are tired, or trying to get comfortable. And if you don have a good place to put them, then they jsut get knocked to the floor. Other than looking nice, they serve no purpose.

    The **** is a duvet?

    Yup - in the evening, take them all off the bed, put them in the corner, closet, or elsewhere...

    in the morning, pick them up, and put them back on the bed.

    most guys do not feel they make the room look any better than without them.

    This was more or less my original response, but after going all Hulk smash on my keyboard thinking about throw "pillows" I took a deep breath and released the shift key

    Well there was this one time when we used them to prop something for access to something else. Other than that, yep pretty much agree with everybody else.

    Re: Why do men hate throw pillows?

    Throw pillows = decorative pillows, fabric usually matching duvet cover

    Duvet = cover for down comforter

    Did not expect this many responses so quickly
