Somnophilia, which translates from the Greek meaning “Sleep Love” is a paraphilia whereby the person intrudes upon someone that is sleeping and achieves a pleasure from having sex with them.

About Somnophilia

The Somnophile fantasises about having intercourse or performing sexual acts on a sleeping individual and may try to commit these acts on their partner whilst they sleep.

Somnophilia, unlike Sexsomnia, where sex is usually the end result, is a fairly harmless condition. The Somnophile does not force sex upon other non-consenting individuals, and merely fantasises about committing such an act; though they might request that their sexual partner feigns sleep or agrees to let them perform sexual acts on them whilst they are asleep.
