Do you use an electric blanket?

I use one in the winter to warm up the bed, but then I turn it off.

 NO, NO, NO! NO WAY! NEVER!  I am very afraid of being on fire and I just have this fear of the electric blanket catching fire while I am sleeping.  Maybe it all stems from my mom yelling at me when I was little for "creasing" the blanket.  That could break the wires in there and cause a fire.  Thanks mom.

I've never owned one, and I just snuggle with my hunny to keep warm.

No. Then again, it is never cold enough to need one here.

No, never have never will. I wouldnt feel comfortable sleeping under one. It would scare me.

I just sleep under 2 or 3 blankets in the winter lol. And I wear my PJs  and thick socks and sometimes several layers lol.

I believe this is not an issue anymore with improvements in technology.

We have a heated mattress pad, and I love it!!  I use it all winter.  It keeps me so warm, and it warms my side of the bed evenly.

Yep, I love it. I keep it on all winter. My son also has one. He loves it. His has an auto shut off after 10 hours.
