Have you ever had a really good dream and woken up after, ahem, getting all the way to the finishing point? It’s not the worst way to start the day… much better than being roused by a toddler who is trying to pry your eyelids open.
If this has happened to you, you are one of 37 per cent of women who are able to climax while they are asleep.
And we thought wet dreams were for boys only.
Sleepgasms, nocturnal orgasms, call them what you will. Researchers at the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction found that over one in three women experience orgasms in their sleep by the time they turn 45.
With men, the occurrence of this is a lot higher - around about 90 percent. But the dreams with happy endings that plague their teenage years and early twenties occur less and less as they get older.
