If it's hot, it's cool.

Alas, when I tried it it wasn't hot; it was actually chilly and I was trying it to stay awake by the unfamiliarity of it. It worked, for a while. I started to get sleepy again a little later until my sister called to check up on me. She kept me awake until I got into town and my bladder took over in keeping me awake.

One of the worst aspects of my job are the times when my body wants to take 5 and I'm at a place that won't lend itself to letting me do that. I squirm all over the place in order to stay awake, which works but puts me in a place where I can't stop for fear of nodding off.
Once I can pull off the road and let my eyes close, even if only for 5 minutes, I'm good to go until I get done. It really amazes me what going along with the body's demands can accomplish.

I do that on occaison and I don't really care what other people think about it, but I am admittedly an asshole with subpar empathic powers. The seatbelt strap can chafe a bit, though. I've seen other guys driving shirtless, too, and I don't see a problem with it.

heheheheh :-)

It's kind of fun, and honestly even a little erotic. I can't really make an excuse for it around town (too short of a drive), but for hour-plus trips it will be considered again.

Back sweats and sticks to seat. Feels weird. Highly uncomfortable.

Back of seat then smells like stale sweat later. Not the most pleasant.

Overall: I avoid it.

Sticks to the seat? Do you have leather seats or something? I can agree it felt weird, but not really uncomfortable.

I can't say I'll be doing it around town, but if I take any more hour-plus trips and it's moderately warm then I may consider it.
