For years, I've been sleeping on a mattress on the floor. Don't get me wrong: I'd love to have a bed frame. I love the look of captain's beds with their convenient storage, or elevated frames with drawers.
My major problem with frames, though, is that they are way too noisy during sex.
There's nothing wrong with being loud, but when you want to be quiet, you can never quite pass that message along to the bed frame. Metal and wood both conspire to let everyone know what you're up to. Headboards require a hand to hold them, or they'll slam against the wall in protest. No matter how well you bite into the pillow, a stray thunk from a headboard or the incessant creaking of a frame will give up all your secrets in an instant.
Is there a bed frame that won't betray the frantic motions on the mattress above? Does such a frame exist? -Elemeno P.
