What strange things have you seen people do in their sleep?
¸.·'★ People – both young and old have been known to do some very strange things while sleeping. Such as:
a) Sleep walking – This is very common. A situation whereby adults or even young kids walk around while they are still in sleep mode. It can be dangerous.
b) Sleeping with other people – Called Sexsomnia. A situation where a person is intimate with another person, but not aware of it because they are sleeping!! Controversial. A man was cleared of rape in America on the grounds that he didn’t know what he was doing. I still think it’s Ridiculous. I include a story of a man cleared of a Teen Rape in UK, 2011, on the grounds of Sexsomnia. Full Story
c) Sleep Texting – this I heard about only recently. It could get a lot of people into trouble. It’s bad enough that our smart phones mistakenly send text messages to the wrong person, as the phone is so touch-sensitive.
d) Sleep Talking – Harmless, except if you spill the beans on something your partner should not know about. E.g saying in your dreams: “Oh, I’m so glad I bought that £5,000 Gucci bag, with my sweethearts credit card….Awesome.”
e) Kicking Mum & Dad – Mostly with Kids. As a young child, sometimes if I slept in the same bed with my mum, she said I would keep on pushing her backwards with my backside, which meant she had to move back, until she nearly rolled out of bed.

f) Sleep Driving – I have never seen it happen, but many have claimed that people can drive while sleeping. In the photo below, I wonder if the driver had booked a Cruise and dreamt the boat was leaving without him/her.
So, they drove in their dreams to catch-up?
Missed the boat...
