London: A couple was amazed to find out that they had conceived while the husband, who is suffering from ‘sexsomnia’, was fast asleep.
Sexsomnia is a rare medical condition, which makes people perform sexual acts they later cannot remember.
Ryan and Dee Harris had been trying hard for the past 18 months, to have a baby and were also about to start with the fertility treatment.
Because of his medical condition, Ryan regularly wakes Dee, 25, for sex without regaining consciousness himself.
“I had to keep records of when we had sex,” the Sun quoted Dee as saying.
“When I looked back, it was clear I’d conceived on a night we had ‘sleep sex’ as we call it — which means I’m half-awake and Ryan is actually totally asleep.”
“That night Ryan took me by surprise. It put more of the fun back into it — and it clearly worked.”
Dee revealed that her husband did not remember anything about that night.
“The first time it happened, I sent him a text the next morning, saying ‘Last night was great.”
“He replied saying he didn’t know what I was on about. He can never remember — but the sex is more intense.”
The couple, from Basingstoke, Hants, have been together for nine years and their son Lincoln is now 16 months old.
