SLEEP and sex are the only activities Rockhampton snooze queen Sue Job prefers to do in her bedroom.

Everything else, like shovelling down whole pizzas and building coffee tables, should be done in their respective rooms of the house.

Sue, the manager of Sleepy's Rockhampton at Redhill shopping centre, has been in the mattress industry for more than 10 years.

She specialises in the "science" of choosing the right mattress for her customers and yesterday shared some of her boudoir behaviours.

Sue spoke to The Morning Bulletin yesterday after an Ikea study this week revealed examples of some of Australians' bedroom secrets.

Some key highlights in the study were: nearly half of adult men who took part in the study still have childhood toys on their bed, 28% of singles have been turned off by the state of a prospective partner's bedroom, 14% of Aussie men use their bedroom as a garage space and 8% of Australians wait over two months before washing their sheets.

Sue and her co-worker Robert Howlett (pictured) firmly agreed that changing bed sheets constantly was a golden rule.

Anyone who did otherwise, in Sue's view, should change their "disgusting habit".

"When I read that some people take two months before washing their sheets, I was disgusted," she said.

"It's a proven fact that you should always air out your bed for 30 minutes every day because it helps with your sleeping pattern."

The study also revealed men went to the most effort to be a hit in the bedroom, with 60% admitting they'd purchase new linen.
