Is it weird that I occasionally get orgasms in my sleep? Apparently, it's normal but I've never heard of other girls getting it.

It happens quite strangely - I'll be asleep and dreaming but whilst I'm dreaming, I'll feel pleasure down *there* and it builds up and up and when I'm about to orgasm, that's when I actually wake up. But by the time I wake up, I'll be having an orgasm and I can't stop it. I share a room with my sister so I try really hard to not make a sound or to move but it's difficult because it feels intense. Once it's over, I instantly fall back asleep. The first time it happened which was earlier this year, I was convinced the whole thing was just a dream, but then it happened again and again. It doesn't happen a lot, just occasionally - the last time I experienced it was probably...two months ago?

I feel embarrassed talking to anyone about it and I feel like people will think of me weirdly. Do you think it is abnormal? I don't really know why I sometimes experience this, could anyone possibly suggest what might be causing it???? Does anyone else experience this?

It's sounds natural ok as boys gets this worse than females.
If you are having this more often / regular then talk to your doctor and see what they think causing it.




Female orgasm during sleep is rare, but real nevertheless. Sleep orgasm, also known as “nocturnal orgasm,” is a combination of elevated blood flow to the pelvic area and being relaxed, which increases psychogenic arousal.

Is it possible to orgasm in your sleep...........
Yes, orgasm during sleep is possible regardless of sex, and it is perfectly normal. It’s commonly called a nocturnal orgasm or wet dream. Nocturnal orgasms are mostly associated with male puberty, and they occur as a result of increased testosterone levels. However, wet dreams, or sleep orgasms, can happen to anyone.
Sleep orgasms begin with a sexual dream. This leads to increased blood flow to the genitals in combination with the complete relaxation of deep slumber, allowing the body to orgasm without external stimulation. Sleep orgasms vary greatly from person to person. Some people don’t experience them at all, and others have them quite often.

Reasons for orgasms during sleep
1. A sexual dream
A sexually arousing dream during the rapid eye movement (REM) stage of sleep can cause a wet dream. During REM, blood flow increases in the pelvic region, and the brain is perfectly primed for sleep orgasm.

Many people report awakening to find themselves aroused or still having an orgasm. This is absolutely normal.

2. Too much stress or excitement
Going through a stressful period of life reportedly produces more nocturnal orgasms or wet dreams than a more relaxed period of life. Too much anxiety or excitement may trigger spontaneous orgasm during sleep.
.

How to prevent orgasms during sleep
It’s fairly impossible to influence what you dream about and whether or not you’ll have an orgasm during sleep, but here are some things you can try:

Relax
Sleep for seven to eight hours every day and get enough exercise to keep yourself fit and healthy. Take some time off for the activities that you enjoy. Identify some new habits and fun hobbies that relax your body and mind.

Avoid watching porn, especially before going to bed
Take your mind off sex and avoid watching porn or sexual TV shows or looking at sexual images or naked pictures before bed. This may help to prevent orgasm during sleep.

Sleep on your right side and not on your back
In order to prevent accidental stimulation and nocturnal orgasm during the night, sleep on your right side and wear loose-fitting clothes. Nocturnal orgasm occurs more frequently when you sleep on your back or abdomen.

Go for cold showers
Cold showers decrease genital sensitivity and may help prevent accidental stimulation during the night.

Avoid caffeine before going to bed
Avoid drinking any kind of caffeine before going to bed. Caffeine elevates sensitivity and irritability, which can cause erotic dreams. Stay hydrated to keep your digestive system functioning properly. Use the washroom frequently and get plenty of exercise to alleviate any kind of anxiety and tension.

Talk to your health care provider
If you feel uncomfortable about your nocturnal orgasms or wet dreams, consult your health care provider or counselor. If you experience orgasm in your sleep, talking about it might help you feel more relaxed and comfortable about it.

do you have an idea why I wake up when I am about to have an orgasm? I've only ever had an orgasm in my sleep once, the rest I woke up as I was about to have one.

Unfortunately I can't explain why you wake up when you are about to orgasm as it's similar I think to when people have a good dream and then suddenly wake up at the crucial part of it.

It's just how the body mind reacts I would say as only person can tell you that is obviously a doctor or specialist one.

Hi

If it continues on regular basis then I would perhaps seek some advise from your GP on it but you'll need to see how it goes okay. And maybe let me know if it happens again.
Are you at a certain young age by chance....!!!

Feel free to PM me ok if you wish ok.

Hi

Yeah I thought that you were at this sort of age with you asking of this , I think it's done to your pubicy still as still being going through some kind of it...... I put it down to you perhaps looking at boys or even girls and then you seen to be dreaming about it maybe ( could be wrong with this ok ),

As a midwife I take all health related issues as serious untill obviously person find out why it is happenening from a specialist doctor or your GP.


I don't doubt you at all ok.

No problems trying to help you and do see your GP if it continues okay.
