An interesting story appeared in Sydney Morning Herald about a Canadian man who was acquitted of sexual assault this week after a judge ruled he was asleep during the attack.
The acquitted 33-year-old landscaper had met a woman at a party in July, the Toronto Sun newspaper reported on Wednesday and both had been drinking and fell asleep on a couch. The woman woke up to find the landscaper having sex with her and pushed him off. He immediately woke up but was not conscious of the coitus. He claimed in the court that he first suspected they had had sex only after going to the bathroom and finding he was still wearing a condom.
A sleep expert testified at his trial that the man suffered from “sexomnia”, a sort of sleep walking that includes sexual acts, likely brought on by alcohol, sleep deprivation and genetics.
The man had previously had “sleep sex” with four girlfriends, the court heard.
The judgment outraged women’s groups, according to the report. “This is infuriating. It’s another case of the courts not taking a woman seriously, adding yet another item to the list of excuses which men use for sexual assault,” Suzanne Jay of the Canadian Association of Sexual Assault Centres told the newspaper.
The phenomenon of somnambulism has been sublimated to new heights by the “sleep-sex”. The world of wild sex is weird indeed!

Strange phenomena do happen in this world, don’t they! 😉
Have a heart!
I’ts all do possible I’ve done extensive studies and reading in Psychiatry and there are no bounds yet defined as to the possibilties of the human mind,. You cant dismiss any possibilties when navigating uncharted frontiers. Sex being a very strong part of the human psyche can manifest many different phenomenon.
O.k., I’m studying to be a sex therapist and I’m sorry but I don’t buy it. I can accept that while sleeping people may do certain things like start touching themselves, humping on the pillow, sleep walk and hump on the couch or fall to the ground and hump on the rug, but come on for a man to PRECISELY insert his finger or penis into a vagina or anus while he’s sleeping….come on are you kidding me?!!!:mad:
well let me tell you it is true. my husband has this sexsomnia. and he often inserts his finger and penis in me and is a sleep. and at first when i told him about it he thought i was joking. so to the person who is going to be a sex therapist, i hope you study harder and longer. before you try to help people you may not believe.
I suffer from sex somnia. It is very real. My wife would tell me the things I do in my sleep and I wouldn’t believe her. I woke up one night and to my suprise, I was performing oral sex on my wife. Of course, she didn’t mind!
