Question: Hi, I am a 28 year old male and I usually sleep alone. But recently I had a situation to share bed with one of my male friend.
But later when I was in deep sleep I cuddled him unknowingly putting my hand on his stomach. Is it something normal or should I be worried about this. Please help.

Thanks for your response and that gives me very much relief. And I have one more doubt, so in order to avoid such situations should I avoid sharing bed. Will that help so that others do not get disturbed
