It Happened to ME: I’m a Sexsomniac!

“There’s something I need to tell you before we go to sleep.”

Everyone panics when I say this, but since the summer of 2008, I’ve had an obligation to lead a detailed conversation with certain people about my sleeping habits. Specifically, I need to tell people I’m about to sleep beside that I have a sleeping disorder.

“Oh, don’t worry, it’s not as bad as it sounds. It’s just that I, uh, kind of sleepwalk. But instead of getting out of bed and walking around I sometimes, um, try to have sex.” Continue reading

Charles, a 26-year-old tech expert from North Carolina, is sexually active. He has sex with his girlfriend about three times a week – but that’s only counting when he’s awake. A handful of times a month he’ll go for it in his sleep. He gets rough. “You know how on National Geographic when an animal sneaks up behind a female and jumps on and pumps away? That’s me,” says Charles, a soft-spoken guy in waking life. And it’s not like he even gets to enjoy it: Charles wakes up with no memory at all of having had sex. Continue reading

Comprehensive Overview of Sexsomnia

Introduction                                                                                                                                     I have struggled with daily life and interactions with others since I was diagnosed with severe sexsomnia in 2006.

How Sleep Sex Can Get You in Trouble with the Law

Many people have so-called parasomnias, or involuntary behaviors—sleepwalking being the best known—that they act out while they’re asleep. While it’s rare for parasomniacs to get entangled with the law, sometimes they do. Sleep eating or calling a friend while unconscious isn’t likely to get someone in legal trouble. But certain parasomnias, like sleep sex, may pose a greater legal liability, say sleep experts Carlos Schenck and Michel Cramer Bornemann, both of the Minnesota Regional Sleep Disorders Center at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. Here are four parasomnias they believe to be the most legally problematic, based on their clinical experience and on requests they’ve received from lawyers and others to review legal cases.
