These 19 People Are Living With Sexsomnia


What worries me is that I might take it too far and hurt him or myself, or that I'll say something completely off the wall crazy, or call him a different name, etc.


I am a snuggler by nature when sleeping with people in the same bed. However, even if it's a platonic friend, in my sleep I will rub or hold their genitals. Usually it's only men, but I have been told that when sleeping next to women I cup their breasts. I don't know why I do this, or particularly how to stop it. It really annoys my boyfriend at night when he can't move around because I'm constantly grabbing at his junk.


My boyfriend is sometimes like this, there was a night recently where we had sex before going to sleep, he woke me up in the middle of the night by climbing on top and we had another short session of sex. I asked him in the morning if he remembered the second round but he completely didn't remember. It was weird because he's usually only like that in his sleep if we haven't had much sex.
