Customer Question
If a person masturbates during...

If a person masturbates during sleep unknowingly would this be dangerous if that person's child falls asleep next to that person? How do the psychiatric doctors approach this?   Could parasomnia be a danger to children who occasionally co-sleep with parents?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
