But I want to know about ''in the bed''. Shall we say ''in the bed'' in any case?

When you need to refer to a specific bed.

Bragging to a friend on the phone: I am in the bed that XYZ (a famous person) slept in last week!

嘿嘿,可以傻傻的理解为"in"表示在某物的里面; "on"表示在某物的上面, "in the bed"就表示身体被被子盖住,那就是要睡觉了; "on the bed"表示在床上坐着或躺着,还没有盖上被子要睡觉的意思.

oooooo... either will do!!

The pillow is on the bed. It looks soft. I want to get in bed and rest... but I lay on the bed and think... hours go by and still I just lay there... on the bed with the pillows. But now I am so tired... so I take off my clothes and get in bed... under the covers... turn out the light and sleep.

They are almost the same. If you intend to sleep then you are in the bed... if you want to lay there and read you are on the bed. It might be that if you are under the covers you are in the bed but if you are on top of the covers you are on the bed.

..... but, "sinfulgirl"... considering your chosen name... most guys will prefer "in the bed" to "on the bed" in replying to you... however, if the guy has a sinful girl... either will do!
