Sleep Masturbation

Definition - What does Sleep Masturbation mean?

Sleep masturbation is a relatively common sleep behavior that happens to both men and women. While sleeping, the person rubs his or her genitals, often during a sexual dream. Sleep masturbation is normal and is generally not considered a sign of sexual dissatisfaction.

Kinkly explains 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.

  • This very body that we have, that’s sitting right here right now ... with its aches and its pleasures ... is exactly what we need to be fully human, fully awake, fully alive.
