  • What's going on?

  • You were fast asleep minding your own business.

  • Is she tripping or something?

  • Hearing her voice going toe high pitched mode as she hurls accusations Your way your automatic reaction is to get defensive.

  • Still, you try to stay calm and defend yourself.

  • This has happened before and you know how it ended last time.

  • After a few moments, you take in what she's actually saying.

  • She's claiming you were aggressively thrusting and trying to get fresh with her while she was asleep.

  • Nonsense, you were asleep to.

  • Maybe she was just dreaming, but she seems so convinced that you don't dare suggested what's going on.

  • Sex Omnia is a rare disorder that causes some unusual sleeping habits, whereas insomniacs have trouble sleeping sex.

  • Somini Ax engaged in sexual acts while asleep.

  • This is different from having a wet dream or an orgasmic experience during your slumber, because the person engages in full on sexual acts like masturbation or intercourse.

  • When they wake up, they have no idea what just happened.

  • Imagine you could lose your virginity and not even realize madness.

  • It's also possible to combine this sleep sex with sleep talking and sleepwalking so you could have the full shebang with some freaky outdoor sex outside and dirty talk madness.

  • Having sex in your sleep might sound harmless or even pleasurable, but it can lead to some dire consequences.

  • But first, let's look at the science behind this sexy phenomenon.

  • Sex Omnia is a type of parasomnia, a term that encompasses all kinds of abnormal activities that can happen while we're asleep, sleep, walking and sleep talking or the most common and well known.

  • But it turns out we could get upto all kinds of weird stuff.

  • Sleep related eating disorders make people been gee, while asleep confusion arouse ALS aren't the weird stuff you're into that you shouldn't tell others about?

  • They're also known as sleep drunkenness because they make us function at lower brain capacity and talk rubbish and REM sleep behavior disorders see people fighting imaginary intruders or running away from non existent monsters.

  • Different types of parasomnia take place at different points in the sleep cycle.

  • When we first nod off we go into a light sleep for a few minutes, then we enter the second stage of sleep, which is also pretty light and ideal for brief naps.

  • In the 3rd and 4th stage is we finally enter deep sleep, a restorative state that helps us boost our immune system energy and repair our body tissue.

  • Afterward, we go into rapid eye movement, or REM.

  • Sleep for around 90 minutes at this point to the brain becomes more active and we consolidate our memories.

  • It's also the part of sleep where we dream most cases of sex Omnia take place during non rapid eye movement, or n rim during stages three and four.

  • Since these air the deepest stages of sleep cycle and don't involve dreams, the mind can go a little crazy.

  • The parts of the brain that control vision, movement and emotion remain awake during in REM sleep.

  • But the parts controlling memory, decision making and rationality are asleep.

  • Yep, sounds like a recipe for disaster.

  • Most types of parasomnia occurred during in REM sleep, including sleep, walking and sleep talking.

  • But there are also a few disorders that can happen during REM sleep.

  • A key example is sleep paralysis waking up, paralyzed while partially emerged in a dream state.

  • Which is why it's so terrifying.

  • Because sex omni occurs during deep sleep and we don't remember it when we wake up, it's difficult to diagnose yourself.

  • Symptoms include heavy breathing, sweating, masturbating, pelvic thrusting, spontaneous orgasm, fondling, an elevated heart rate and blank stares.

  • To me, that just sounds like the normal state of a hormone filled teenager.

  • But there you go.

  • Although we have a vague understanding of sex army, and now it's still murky on the details.

  • What causes it?

  • How often doesn't happen?

  • We're still not sure.

  • Naturally, it's pretty challenging for scientists to investigate sex Omnia You can't just repeatedly make two people fall asleep together in a laboratory, hoping that eventually they'll have sex while sleeping, Then repeat it with 100 other couples because you need a bigger sample size to reach any conclusion, we'll probably be in the dark about this one for a long time.

  • However, there are some theories.

  • Some researchers think that causes of sex Omnia could be exhaustion, alcohol, drugs, anxiety or poor sleeping conditions and sharing a bed with someone.

  • Although it's hard to ignore that one all together.

  • So we can Onley assume that attempting to cope with extreme stress by taking drugs, partying until the early hours and getting into bed with your friend who has an uncomfortable mattress is a terrible idea and not a healthy coping mechanism.

  • You learn something new every day, even though it's notoriously difficult to research sex Omnia.

  • A few cases have been found, and I'll tell you now it doesn't end well.

  • The first case of sex, Omnia, was reported as recently as 1986.

  • That could be because humans air getting progressively horny er over time.

  • But most likely it's just because nobody thought it was worthwhile to report before them.

  • I mean, what person in their right mind would ring up their doctor after they masturbated in their sleep?

  • You just shrug it off and go about your day, wouldn't you?

  • Even now, on Lee, 194 cases have ever been reported, and there's very little information available about most of them.

  • But in 2017, 1 man in the UK was successfully diagnosed after ending up in hot water with both his current and his ex girlfriend.

  • We don't know his actual name, So let's call him Bob.

  • First Bob crashed at his ex girlfriend's house one night.

  • It's not a good idea at the best of times, but in fairness to him, they had a kid together.

  • What could go wrong, right?

  • Turns out a lot can go wrong.

  • Bob woke up to find his ex screaming at him, accusing him of rape.

  • He was confused and alarmed, believing he'd done nothing of sorts, but decided it was best to leave promptly and let her calm down.

  • It was probably a bad call to not talk it out and investigate further, because the incident ended with him being accused of rape and convicted as guilty by the jury.

  • Still, Bob didn't understand what had happened and believed he was innocent.

  • Then a similar pattern happened with his next girlfriend.

  • The first night they slept in the same bed.

  • She was annoyed to find him fondling her and thrusting in the middle of the night, but brushed it off and said nothing.

  • Then another night, after a boozy party, she was woken up in the middle of the night.

  • She shouted at Bob, angrily angry that he'd wake her up and have such little respect for her boundaries.

  • It was so out of character to he was usually so gentle and thoughtful.

  • Much to her surprise, Bob seemed taken aback, confused and denied anything had happened.

  • Was he an evil gaslighting genius, or was there something even stranger going on here?

  • Bob saw a doctor who pointed out the rare disease of sex Omnia.

  • Suddenly, everything made sense.

  • He wasn't a forgetful sexual predator.

  • He'd literally been sleeping throughout all the incidents to verify it really was sex Omnia.

  • The doctor referred him to a sleep clinic in London, where he could be monitored.

  • The researchers put electrodes to his scalp as he slept to monitor his brain activity and found some surprising results.

  • During the incidents, Bob was effectively both awake and asleep at the same time, the sleep cycle of regular people was out the window.

  • There were both the slow brainwaves associated with deep sleep and the fast rhythms and brainwaves associated with being awake.

  • They diagnosed him with sex.

  • Omnia, another man from Scotland, was cleared of rape charges after doctors diagnosed him with sex Omnia, But it's still a legal gray area for now.

  • Now, check out our videos about why everything you know about sleep is wrong and what your bad dreams say about you.
