Sexsomnia: not awesome like its name

07Mar08

gr.jpgAs if we didn’t have enough to worry about, “more and more reports are surfacing of abnormal sexual behaviors emerging during sleep“—enough to inspire a formal classification of them. We’re not talking the awesome kind of sleep sex where you wake up at 5 a.m. groping each other.

Known as sleepsex or sexsomnia, the abnormal sexual behaviors which emerge during sleep can cause significant problems for sufferers and their partners….”While people may think this type of behavior is humorous, in reality it can be disturbing, annoying, embarrassing and a potentially serious problem for some individuals and couples.”

The full classification of sleep sex disorders is disturbing and serious indeed: from “Sleep-related sexual seizures” to “Sexual delusions/hallucinations after awakenings.”
