Sexsomnia Image- Squido Sexsomnia More Common Than You Might Think

Welcome to the Sexsomniacs Journey, a Path to Understanding and Healing.

I was diagnosed with Sexsomnia in June of 2006. I had never heard about sexsomnia (aka. Sleep Sex) before and was absolutely mortified, in complete shock and terror that I had such a condition.  I was frustrated with myself because of sexsomnia as I did not understand or even comprehend the possibility of one being capable of having sex while asleep, especially without knowing it even happened.  I kept asking myself:  how is this possible?  Why is this happening to me?  What is wrong with me?  How am I ever going to have a normal life again?  Is this treatable or curable?  (Sexsomnia Overview)

I even seriously considered committing suicide as I firmly believed that I was a threat to others and myself.  I told myself that if I am unable to know what I am doing when I think I am resting, than I am a clear and present danger to myself and others.  Fortunately, I have someone in my life that is very much a genius who helped me to come to terms with my mental disorder (sexsomnia) and how to bring it under control through identifying triggers, addressing episodes as they happen, diffusing situations with people whom were present in episodes, and how to address the episodes and triggers themselves in a healthy and constructive manner.

Now, after 6 years, I have read all information available about Sexsomnia and have a firm grasp on my condition. I have learned how to live with my Sexsomnia and not allow it to rule my life while bringing my illness under control.

The intent of this site is provide a safe and understanding environment for other Sexsomniac’s, those who love us, the curious minded, and to increase overall awareness of this little known yet majorly life-altering condition.

We will discuss all matters of Sexsomnia and I will bring to light various “triggers” that afflict the vast majority of those with Sexsomnia and how to control them.  We will learn from each other’s experiences, failures, and successes.  We will cry together and laugh together as we come to fully understand our sexsomnia and enjoy the path of healing together.

    Im a victim of sexsomnia. I am not the person with the disorder but someone who was attacked by someone who claims he has sex in his sleep and sometimes he wakes up while in the act and other times he doesn’t remember he even did it after he wakes up. a month ago he attacked me causing severe bites across my arms, chest and neck area along with pulling my hair out. I didn’t believe he wouldn’t remember but he says he doesn’t because he seemed lucid. The police are aware what happened. They don’t believe me that this a thing. So I am not sure if he’s lying or not but he says he does have sex with his wife of 12 years and she has rape fantasies. My problem is he also has 8 year old child in the home and it scares me that sexsomnia is related to parasomnia which is sleep walking. There are few causes of sexsomnias attacking people after they got up walked and he has claimed he has walked into others rooms or near someone and had sex to wake up in the middle or be told in the next morning. he has a bad biting fetish so I guess that only happens rarely. I have had to terminate visitation and now getting protective order against him from being around me or our 9 month old son. Its a nightmare for the victim. Please get help as this person has.

    Hello!

    I am a journalist in the UK currently working on a piece on sexsomnia and on the hunt for a case study! For anyone interested, you are free to remain anonymous and will receive a fee should the piece be published – Cosmopolitan UK have shown interest in the feature should I secure a strong case study. The interviewees do not have to be UK based.

    Please email bridie.wilkins@hotmail.co.uk for more information.

    Thanks!

    I am so grateful to websites like these in making people aware about this condition. Its been 7 years that I have been suffering from sexomniac and I kept downplaying the incidents at night thinking I am some sort of horny sex freak. I never imagined it could be a medical condition and I literally cried when I read some of the stuff on this website since it took me back to all those traumatic experiences I had been through.

    Although my biggest question is still unanswered, Why does this happen?
    Can it happen to anyone randomly or does it happen due to certain things like stress, sleep deprivation, etc?

  6. Ross Benes says:

    Hello. I’m doing research for a magazine’s monthly sex column. And I’m investigating sexsomnia. While I’m already talking to researchers and experts, I would like to talk to someone who has experience with this condition. If anyone is able to give me a 15 minute chat, I would be very grateful. You can reach me at rbenes@hearst.com

    I’m looking to write an article on sexsomnia for an Australian monthly magazine. I’m looking to speak to someone who has a history or at least one episode of this behaviour, as well as the partner of someone who suffers from the behaviour.

    The piece will be sensitively written, and they can be anonymous if desired. Would you have any readers that may be interested in participating? They don’t have to be from Australia – the interview can be conducted over skype.

    Many thanks,
    Julia

    Hi – I’m a journalist in the UK. I’m looking to do a piece on sexomnia from the point of view of either a female that has the condition or the partner of a male sufferer. They would need to be UK based. It would be a sensitively written piece and they would have complete control over the content. It’s a good way to raise awareness of this unusual condition and set the record straight about it. Do you know of anyone that might be interested in speaking to me? Thanks, Faye
