We think of our beds, and our bedrooms, as the most intimate, personal part of our house. The bedroom is the room that is closed off if we have guests in our house, and inviting someone into your bedroom has certain… connotations. But it hasn’t always been thus. Throughout human history, beds were often more communal, public places — sometimes with sexual overtones, but more frequently with none whatsoever.
