Q: 

My boyfriend is masturbating while he is asleep!

I really dont know if it is a problem or not. My boyfriend masturbates during the night while he is asleep ( but he is not comming, only masturbating). In the morning he cant remember it.
Honstly I dont have any problem with that. Masturbating is quit normal ( in my point of view) but I heard from some friends that it is a kind of a sleep disorder like sleep-walking or talking or whatever!
Would you please help me?

Regards
Nana

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Sex while sleeping is called sexsomnia, is a condition in which a person will do sexual acts while still asleep, acts such as masturbation, fondling themselves or others, having sex with another person and in more extreme cases sexual assault.  You might want him to see a doctor and explain what is happening. Taking Clonazepam has been used as a first line of treatment for this condition.
