More About Sleep Masturbation
It’s rare that people know they masturbate in their sleep unless a partner notices it. Although it’s a fairly common behavior that is usually normal in people with high libidos, it can also be a sign of a sleep disorder. If sleeping masturbation affects your or your partner’s sleep, you may want to consult a doctor who will then decide if you would benefit from attending a sleep clinic. If your sleeping patterns indicate a problem, you may also receive medication to improve your sleep.
