These 19 People Are Living With Sexsomnia


Every so often my boyfriend will suck on my left nipple in the middle of the night and put his hand down my undies. Occasionally this has woken me up and each time I've been pretty terrified in the moment because I have no idea whats going on. I confronted him about this a few times (he's given me a purple nipple and aches the next day sometimes because of sucking so hard) and he denies it to the ends of the earth. I will also catch him masturbating multiple times in the middle of the night in his sleep. He has no idea he's doing it, and even accused me of lying and making it up.


When we were first dating i didn't realize he was asleep until he climaxed. He is a bit rougher when he's asleep but there have been no issues yet.


I have sexsomnia. When I was young, in my twenties my SO would rave about the awesome sex we had and I would be clueless and freak out thinking she was making it up. It is hard to comprehend that you are actually doing something that you have absolutely no memory of doing. It took a while for me to grasp that I was really doing this.
