Hello,

basically i have a fear that in such circumstances i would be acting on my partner sleeping beside me. presently am a bachelor living with my friends. my fear is that i may show that urges on the one sleeping beside me. will this really happen. because i wake up with strong urge but am aware of everything going on at that time. actually i didn't react badly on anyone but i have that fear. is this something abnormal. i had this kind of situation for 3 times within the past 10 years.
i had a situation one day. i woke up one day in middle of sleep and had a very strong urge. i was about to act one the one sleeping beside me but i realized and controlled it. now am getting fear with that situation. please help me.

Brief Answer:
Its natural

Detailed Answer:
Hi, its normal to have high hormonal levels in middle of night. This leads to sexual excitement. It is natural to feel sexual urge and mastrubation. It is safe to masturbate. Dont worry about it. Try to control your urges on people sleeping besides you as you have successfully done till now. Try to sleep in different part of room by giving some excuse.

Thank you Dr XXXXXXX for your response. I actually have another small doubt. When I was 19 or 20, suddenly in the middle of sleep I found that I was without pants. But actually I didn't remember when did I remove my pants off. Does that happen once in a while.
Is this pretty normal or am I suffering from any sleeping disorder. Please clarify me
