Having a nap? Don't fall on any cocks!
It sounds suspicious to me, but there's a
on the Internet, and an atricle on the BBC, so it must be true!

It sounds suspicious to me too. It seems more of an excuse and an opportunity for sensationalism than something unconscious - but then again, I don't sleepwalk, so I don't know what to think.
make you do some pretty strange things while asleep, so I can believe the disorder exists. I think asshole defense lawyers are going to be crawling all over it; but because I think this condition must be very difficult to prove or disprove as a legal defense I doubt many will actually try using it. Same reason why insanity pleas are used in only really desperate cases - either because the person really was nuts, or, there is no other viable defense, and lawyers get creative.
It sounds like someone payed off their sleep physician.
I have seen a special on Discovery Channel on this sort of thing, actually a fascinating show... there have been murders that occurred in this condition as well- it sounds like a ridiculous defense but science seems to back it up.
A friend of mine a number of years ago was dating someone who had this problem. It's the one thing that most contributed to the end of that relationship. She said that no matter that it was a disorder, it still made her feel violated, like a rape, to wake up to this. He went into treatment after the breakup of that relationship, and from what I understand from his current girlfriend (also a friend of mine) he no longer has the disorder, though he does still do some sleepwalking.
I can't imagine going knocking on doors to find willing sexual partners in my sleep. It's hard enough when I'm awake.
Hehe. Brilliant excuse.
Mmmm, horny zombies... Night of the Sleeping Head.
moneyjane -- Speaking as an asshole defense lawyer, you are probably right.
But you're an asshole defense lawyer
so you're alright by me...heh, yeah, I think there will be a little flurry of interest in its defense possibilities just because it's bizarre, but that no lawyer in his right mind will try and use it. Which sucks if you're the one dude who actually is a zombie nookie bandit.
Am I allowed to fall on a cock whilst awake?
See, the problem I have, is that while it might be reasonable to habitually sleep-
, for instance, how the hell are sleepwalkers regularly finding partners for sleep-sex? Are they sleepwalking themselves over to the phone and calling that co-worker they flirt with? Sleepwalking over to the wrong side of the tracks and sleep-picking-up hookers? Finding other sleep-sexers walking around the streets?
Q: "how the hell are sleepwalkers regularly finding partners for sleep-sex?" A (low-tech): Check 'interests' in Yahoo Adult Profiles. Also an RSS category. A (high-tech): RSS (Real Sex Sleep) meets GPS (Geographic Positioning System).
Doesn't seem far fetched to me. There was a Canadian case, happened in Ontario I believe, he drove to his inlaws house, talked to the family and eventualy killed the father-in-law while asleep. If you can kill while sleep walking - why not have sex?
that's scary cuz I've been a sleepwalker since I was a kid... I have episodes even today...like I'll be sleeping and then I'll go walking around the house, and my BF has told me that he just sorta walks around with me until I go back to sleep *so sweet*
he just sorta walks around with me
Well, that's what he tells you, at least... ;>
I wants to make your flesh creep.

, so it must be true.
I wanna re-register my user name as "zombie nookie bandit".
The disturbing part is, squid, that you can just change your username.
Or maybe I have to do it, I can't remember. I did it for someone else.
Let sleeping cocks lie.
Nah thanks anyway tracicle. All is cool in squidlandia. Although I strongly reccomend "zombie nookie bandit" to any lurkers.
You lose half your body heat through your head. Don't wear socks to bed, wear a ski mask.
These people are not just trying to explain sleep sex, they're advocating getting away with it!
