Anita Sayer’s husband Dan, 24, suffers from sexsomnia, a condition that causes him to fondle his wife – and even have full sex – while he is asleep.
Worst still, he has no memory of it in the morning when he wakes.
In her interview with the Daily Mail, Anita says she finds herself pushing her sexually-keen husband to the other side of the bed up to three times a night, which leaves her exhausted and annoyed.
Come morning time, Dan is left with a blank look on his face when Anita shares the details of their night.
“People make jokes about it but it's something that bothers me,” says Dan Sayer.
“I wake up and look at Anita and I can immediately tell from the look on her face I’ve done it again. But I honestly don’t remember any of it and I don’t like the fact that I am upsetting her, yet can’t control it.”
Dan, who has been married to Anita for a year, says his sexsomnia strikes every few weeks, and when it does, it’s often happens a few nights in a row.
“I usually rouse from sleep just in time, pretty surprised to find what I’m doing, although if Anita’s happy, then we might continue,’ Dan explains to the Daily Mail.
