This morning before I got up, and while I was still sleeping (obviously), I was having a dream of a very sexual nature. I woke up feeling very sleepy and noticed I felt pleasureable urges "down there." So, I decided to carry them out through masturbation. The entire time I felt partly conscious, like someone who is on the brink of falling asleep. Then I orgasmed, which sort of woke me up, and I kept questioning myself if it really happened or not. I kept wondering if I really did that or if it was a dream, but I did feel my hands between my legs, so it must have happened. How was I able to almost fall asleep during this? Is it because I was not fully awake when I decided to do this? But then how do I somewhat remember it? My main concern is that I am going to start sleepwalking and do unwanted things (dangerous or violent things, not just sexual). I never have sleep walked before in my life, and nothing like that runs in my family, although we do suffer from other sleep disorders...thanks.

Erotic dreams and masturbation in sleep or half-sleep is not at all uncommon. In general, it's also not considered any kind of sleep disorder, nor do you likely have to be worried that it is.
